Hi all! This is my entry topic for [MINI] contest. I hope photos are not too heavy. Enjoy.

This is "White dream" cargo plane inspired by Antonov 225.

This is Antonov 225

Let's begin the overview with front view:

Side view:

- Front cargo bay opened and plane is tilted to load the TGV train.

This is how original does it:

But wait, there's more!

Lets load a diesel locomotive in the rear cargo bay!

- Done! Captain?

- Ok, load all remaining cargo and start the checks.

- Close all the hatches, we're preparing to take-off!

- All pre-flight checks are done except landing gear check.

- Rear landing gear checked!

Why this topic is a WIP?

The model including cargo contains 199 parts. However there is a second variant of cargo load.

Which brings us to 200 parts. And combining this cargo gives us a nice stand.

So I just can't decide which one to use. They both are cool.

So I want to ask YOU! What do you like more?

In the mean time I'm slowly putting all parts to make one picture for a complete set.

Hope you like it!

Needs a couple of clear bionicle eye pieces (41669)

on either side of the front 'nose' 5L beam if you can spare the 3 pieces needed

I don't think I have those parts =( but thanks for advice.

Thank you all for your replies! Much appreciated.

Hmm, that electric tram looks an awful lot like that diesel locomotive! :-)

Nice job with the TGV too.

Anyone else think that the photo of the train being loaded onto the plane is the mechanized equivalent of a large snake eating a crocodile?

Is the engine mechanism (I assume that's what the wheel on the back does) smooth? Those U-joints look like they're about at the limit of their useful angle.

Well done nevertheless.

If you look closely - the tram has lots of windows on the sides, like here:

The locomotive on the other hand is a bit taller and has almost no windows:

However during the long shooting session the locomotive got tired and fell asleep on its side.

The engines operate very smoothly, I spent some time to achieve that, this function is showed in the video :grin:

Love it! You really managed to caprute some of the unique lines and looks of the AN-225!

Also, that F458 looks almost better than Brunojj1's! :wink:

Very nice! The Ferrari looks very realistic, but I think you could have done a better job on the Bugatti...

Disagree about the Bugatti. Look at the details! The great color uniformity! And most of all: the perfect symmetry of its sturdy design!

Are you going to post instructions for the Ferrari with all these positive comments?

:D

Here they are :

Parts you need to build Ferrari 458:

1X: Technic 2L axle red

1X: Imagination

1X: Sense of humor.

1 step - take the Technic 2L axle red like this:

Apply part №2 like this:

Step 2: apply part №3 and enjoy your 458!

Working hard on Bugatti Veyron instructions.

After 3 Hours of building i finally got the 458! I'm very happy with how it turned out and I'm thinking about motorizing it.

As for the Veyron, i might need to buy some extra parts for such a complex model! xD
