  1. Hello it's the Dubai Police... :) Here you can see my latest MOC car which is a Bugatti Veyron in Dubai Police theme. It can fit either a minifig or a Friends figure (when steering wheel is removed). Hope you like. Thanks for watching.

    McLaren MP4-12C + instructions

    Clever and beautiful in the same package!
  3. EDIT: MY SUPERCAR IS NOW ON LEGO CUUSOO WITH SOME MODIFICATIONS. SEE NEW PICTURES HERE: http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/61930 Every spring I have a fever for a sports car, so now I created one of my own. May I introduce the Supercar Mocman Arrow Evolution 1.0 Black Edition featured with lambo doors and V12 engine. There's also steering in steering wheel and in rear fog light. The body is based on monocoque structure and the bottom is all flat. The features which I really like are the aggresive reverse rake (can be seen in the side profile picture) which gives the rear wheels good grip :). And also the rear diffusors and curved bricks between rear lights look pretty good in my opinion. All forms were created by using bricks which adds sort of "retro" feeling on it, so I wanted to leave some studs visible. The design is based on supercars from 80'ies to the 2010's with some influence of race cars. The car is 34 studs long (27cm) and 12 studs wide. Hope you like and all comments are welcomed. Thank you.
  4. Yes! My Supercar was just published in Lego Cuusoo! Please vote me! :) http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/61930

    My vintage petroliana recreations

    Thank you for bringing up this old thread and thanks for the comments. The garage baseplate does not have studs underneath. It's amazing how many of this vintage parts have managed to get. They are getting rare but they are still almost bargain. I just bought a few garage doors on Brickling for couple of euros and one more garage baseplate for 1.00€. Also old truck trailers seem to pop up every now and then, which just amazes me, they are something like 40 years old parts!
  6. I recently bought an old set from early 60's. The bricks were in poor condition but at least they gave me some inspiration. For most of these creations there was an original Lego model which I kind of "replicated". Or at least the pictures of old sets were studied and used for motivation and inspiration. Here's the first one, only vintage bricks were used. Bottom: And here you can see the poor condition of those vintage bricks. (They were partially glued to make at least some strenght): And the original model 310: The second one, "A movie theatre" was also made of vintage bricks from the same lot. I really like "the old wibe" you can feel in this building. Here's the backside (sidenote: the 2x16's here are newer): Those were the first ones and pretty much the only ones where I used the very old bricks. Those poor old bricks were almost impossible to build anything. I managed to buy another (actually quite a big) lot of old seventies bricks and this Shell station/garage was one of the first creations which I build of them. There's still old feeling in it and vintage bricks were utilized quite a lot, even though you can consider this as a "MOC". Bottom: The one on the right is based on existing set 648 (see picture below) but also on my own design with rounded corners. I really like those rounded corners, they are giving sort of art decoish style. One on the left was made of old and newer bricks on a vintage 4x8 plate. And the last for now is the truck 688: Hope you enjoyed. Thanks.

    [Build your dream home] Expedition Truck

    Cuusoo potential!
  8. Thank you for the comments! I really appreciate!
  9. Thank you for the comments! I think this truck goes under "Lego Model Team".
  10. Here's my Peterbilt MOC with a Formula 1. There's about 800 parts in the truck, lenght 0,5m, weight 1kg. No steering hence I had no part for that, however it is easy to modify when I get some more parts. The engine is CAT Turbo Diesel. I took some ideas from set 5580 but other than that it's all my own desing. The Formula has steering and a pull back motor. It's a big rig! Thanks for watching.
  11. My very first Lego Cuusoo project got just published! Ed Roth´s Mysterion Show Rod http://lego.cuusoo.c...deas/view/58699 Please give me some feedback and comments. I will tell you more. And please go to see and click the "Support"! :) ************************************************** Here's some details about making of the "Mysterion". I have tried to learn new techniques. The frame with holes is 3-wide while the front section is 5-wide. The body is 7-wide but the interior is 4-wide and the bubble is 6-wide. There's also some SNOT design, for example the mismatching headlights, V8-engines, side panels, rear lights and top hinges. And as in the many recent creations there's no visible studs. It is also kind of "modular" as seen in the picture. This was fun to build and The Mysterion is also so far my most advanced creation. Hope you like it! :) *********************************************** Additional pictures of the real car.
  12. Thanks for the comment. I'm planning to redo the engines. I guess this car goes under "Model Team".

    I need a bus for my City!

    Maybe you can build an old school bus with your bricks. http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=89691&hl=

    Ferrari Enzo - Desert Tuning

    One of the best Lego Technic Supercars I have seen on while! Impressive work, thanks for sharing.
  18. Yeah, I know what you're talking about. Had about 4 hours building time today and I managed to start (and tear down / rebuild several times) my vintage FED. It's lot of fun to build. And yes, I also ran out of parts. I will post some photos when its ready.
  19. Small World! I made a Google search "Lego front engine dragster" and Eurobricks with this thread showed up. In the first comment there's Spokane raceway mentioned. I was there in Goodguys nostalgia drags in 2006 when I lived in Seattle. Very nice MOC. You don't see too many of these... I'm currently doing some research to build a FED MOC. Here's my friend's vintage digger in Mount Vernon, WA.

    [retro-MOC] 60's Drag Race

    The boys are having a race day in Legoland. First some gas at the station (648-1) in the early morning. One front engine dragster is towed by a hotrod while another one is hauled with a car and trailer (650-1). Race is on! (Blue car 656-1, Land-Rover 699-1, Ambulance 600-1, Taxi 605-2, Red car 345-1, Red wagon 660-1) Heading back home with a new hauler (490-1). In front of garage (6363-1) there's already the pickup truck and the race car (619-1) waiting for the next challenge! To be continued... Reference: http://www.the-end-of-the.net/legoland

    [retro-MOC] 60's Drag Race

    Thanks for the comments! This was sort of "mock-up" before adding this into my retro Lego-town. Dig the slingshots as well. The race car and the small plane which came with the trailer set in early seventies looked lame. Now there's some action! :) I also like the "stories" behind the displays, like an old retired crane truck was modified to be a dragster hauler...
  22. Thanks for the comments! I will add steering later when I get parts.

    Fire Truck

    I got this idea from the new 60061 set but other than that it is my own design. The truck was built of bricks which I bought from flea market. I used an old windshield in poor condition for modification. It was fun to build.
  24. Thanks for the comments! It was fun to build, I tried to achive kinda "retro" style and also some contrast between the lines of these two vehicles.
  25. Wow, incredible! Amazing work from you!
