    [MOC] Homer's Highschool Hotrod

    Thanks but no. I remember it vaguely but haven't seen it till earlier this evening.
  2. Homer's Highschool Hotrod is a late 60's musclecar with details from many makes and models from that era. I just wanted to create an attractive hotrod. ^ Remember the fenderbender? Well, Homer asked me to help him fix the dents in his left frontwing, and you know, one thing led to another.... ^ variation on taillighttreatment and engine intakes ^ The Man and his car ^ The Wife and her purse ^ Are you saying that this sucker is nuclear??

    [MOC] Speed Champions - Ford Mustang Mach 1

    Very recognizable and very cool! I wonder how you did the turnsignals... Ooh, and I love the two tone hood. The speedchampions is a fun series. Although sticker-heavy, there are some great models.
  4. Thanks! I hear ya on the flatbed-comment. That will be my plan for my other Mystery Machine. Ever heard of de dragster Little Red Wagon? That was my main inspiration to build a Hotrodded Dodge A-100. The mystery has the almost perfect shapes, so it became the hotrod mystery machine. But I am planning on building the Little Red Wagon soon. Just got to find the right parts... I'm running out. But... Not untill after my build I discovered we have/had a Dragster in our dragracing-scene that was shaped after the Little Red Wagon. In lime-green. Titled 'Little Green Wagon'. Now, I have lots of limegreen lego! ...well, enough to build one, I think... Well, I like it 'subtle' the way it is now. Still sort of a realistic hotrod. To exagerate more will make this build look too much like a toy. It works with the Van I pictured because of it's realism. But I think it won't work with Lego. That's cool to hear! Now, go and get one. I loved the shape of that van ever since I was a kid in the late seventies. So I just HAD to have one. And hey, it's Lego. You can make ANYTHING you can think up!

    [MOC] 1974 Dodge Monaco Bluesmobile

    Thank you folks! A movie that at one point held the record for wrecking the most cars ever during filming is worth a watch. At least once in your life. 100+ cars destroyed, particular copcars. Nazis forced to jump off of a bridge. John Belushi & Dan Akroyd singing 'stand by your man'. 100+ cars jumping bridges, doing salto's, and crashing through shopwindows. Princess Leia firing a bazooka. Need I see more... Yes, music plays a big role in this movie. Bluesmusic almost not. But the film is chockfull of popculture-, comedy-, music-, and movielegends. It should be part of your upbringing.

    [MOC] Lego Batmobile from Batman v Superman

    Cool! I like it better in dark grey though. It's nice to have some contrast with the tires and windshield.

    [MOC] 1974 Dodge Monaco Bluesmobile

    I've tried that. But 2 bricks high is way too much... It could work if I was able to set the newer windscreen lower into the body, but that will interfere with the pivotpoint of the doors.
  8. Thanks Only Sinner! You're right... Those are vintage 25 y/o plastic modelkit waterslide decals. I knew those would come in handy some day....

    [MOC] 1974 Dodge Monaco Bluesmobile

    Thanks people! I think you're totally right. It's a part I went back and forth with at the time I build it... It's just that there aren't many options to choose from. I agree this windscreen belongs more on a sleek exotic sportscar. But... Today I've tried to raise it by one plate, leaving some ugly gaps between it and the doors. I Managed to fill that with sidemirrors. So more detailing on the car. For now I'm happy with that. Thanks soccerkid6! Good for you to notice that detail. I'm so glad the snot worked out this way. It totally captures the sidedetail of the real Dodge Monaco.

    [MOC] Donald Duck's Car - The 313

    Fantastic translation to Lego. Great little scenes. Love the broken down one... Now if we'ld only have more (angry) Donald expresions to choose from...
  11. Thanks Captain Green Hair!
  12. This is my rendition of The Bluesmobile. A moc I made two years ago. I finally got the right parts to make not only one, but two Bluesbrothers. The car, an 'ex cop-car' 1974 Dodge Monaco is 7 studs wide which I find perfect for minifig/town/modular scale. Big enough to put in some detail, but small enough to still fit the streets of Legocity. It's got opening doors, hood, and trunk to show off a full interior, engine bay, and trunk. 'It's got a cop motor, a 440 cubic inch plant, it's got cop tires, cop suspensions, cop shocks. It's a model made before catalytic converters so it'll run good on regular gas. What do you say, is it the new Bluesmobile or what?'
  13. Thanks guys! I love the official set. It's a fun build. But I love hotrods even more...

    Speed Racer Mach 5

    Very nice model. Love how you try to be so accurate as possible to the original design. For stickers... Do you need that much of em? You can always search for people or small companies to make you a one-off stickersheet.
