[MINI] Grand Prix Racer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Here is a potential entry for the mini competition. It is a small scaled version of the 42000 Grand prix racer.

Features:

- Independent suspension on all 4 wheels with a linkage mechanism more or less like the real car

- Working steering

- Hood can be opened with a mini-LA

Part count is 200 exactly.

I'm still tweaking the design to get all functions working perfectly.

Looks great, you definitely managed to get some of the details from 42000 downscaled nicely! :thumbup:

Rubber band suspension?

This one's especially nice looking, well done! The fact that it's a mini of an existing set only adds to its charm.

One of the nicest entries.Everything is great, i just dont like "bonnet" for being so tall, but I see that it has to be that way because of the front suspension.

Hi,

Thanks for all the comments.

Yes it is rubberband suspension.

Missing parts are on their way to finish it in real bricks.

Styling of the nose is going to be my challenge for the coming weeks :classic:

Hi,

Next version is designed with a changed nose and an extra function:

The spoiler is now adjustable.

Parts are still underway...

This is looking great, wonder if you could fit in a pull back motor!

Hmm, that would be a challenge... especially with the suspension on the rear wheels... and the actuation of the hood...

Then again, it would be really cool... :grin: , maybe I'll give it a try

Hi again,

And a third incarnation of this model... :blush:

All functions are still in: independent suspension on all 4 wheels, functional steering (and this time you don't need spiderfingers to use the steeringwheel), the hood can be lifted and the spoiler can be adjusted.

Again exactly 200 pieces.

Please let me know which version you like best so far.

Hands down the last version! The long sloped bricks makes it look a lot sleeker! :thumbup:

Would love it if you'd share the .lxf file :classic:
