  1. 1968 FIAT 500 F

    Thank you very much for the praise and feedback. The animation took a long time to make and we're glad it's getting recognition. ;) P.S. Actually Topolino refers to the Cinquecento's predecessor: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fiat_500_Topolino

    A new animation of our car has been released! Will we make the 10k jump? It's up to you. Please support.

    No, no, no and no. You're welcome. :D Jokes aside we'll publish the instructions if we don't reach 10k or don't pass the review but there's still hope. ;) Thanks you ever so much! Thanks also to all the others who commented.

    An Italian Classic Together with Gabriele Zannotti aka zanna I've been working on a scale model of a FIAT 500 for almost two years now. I've actually already made a topic on EB a while ago but the model has improved a lot since then and we also took some cool pictures of the real life model so I decided it would be appropriate to post a new thread. The model As it stands right now the model is made of 1210 pieces and has plenty of details and features to offer. The boot which is located at the front can be opened revealing the fuel tank, a toolbox and an actual spare tyre. The bonnet in the back is decorated with several custom decals depicting the various cooling vents as well as the license plate and additional details. It can be opened which allows you to see the detailed 500cc straight twin engine. Furthermore, the doors can be opened and the front seats tilted forward allowing you to access the rear seat bench. On sunny days you can also swap out the closed sun-roof for the opened variant. Boot details The rear end Openable doors and hatches The engine bay Dashboard details Foldable seats Open roof Thanks for checking out our topic. Additional images can be found in both Gabriele's flickr page and mine. Our model is still very much a work in progress and we keep improving the build and adding new details. We've actually uploaded our model to LEGO Ideas and it has already surpassed 7.5k but your support would be greatly appreciated so we can meet the 10k goal in time.

    Haha it's great to see some activity here already merely 1 hour after the teaser got released. :D I'm happy that you like the model or at least what's visible of it right now. ;)

    Thanks for the kind words. :) I have to admit at the current time the car has no working steering as there's only about 1mm space between the front fenders and the wheels on either side. We were able to make it look like it's steerable because clipping is allowed in Blender. :P The car's design will definitely evolve over time and I'll make sure to take your suggestions into consideration. :)

    Hello and thanks a lot for checking out our latest collaboration! This project features a highly detailed replica of the iconic 1968 Fiat 500 F! Produced from 1957 to 1975 the Cinquecento is considered one of the first real city cars. Read more here. Consisting of 1157 pieces (all add-ons included) this model would be the ultimate for any fan of the Italian legend and definitely a great addition to any Lego collection. The major features are: -detailed exterior with custom prints such as the fiat logo and several prints on the back end -openable hood, trunk and doors -sun-roof (closed and opened) -removable luggage-rack on the back end -suitcase with a bottle and a glass inside -detailed trunk with spare wheel, fuel tank, car jack and a toolbox -engine compartment with a detailed 500cc straight twin engine -detailed interior with movable seats, pedals, handbrake as well as custom prints for the dashboard and the speedometer As mentioned above the proposal for the set includes two sun-roofs which can be interchanged to have the roof either opened or closed. Furthermore, it also includes a removable luggage rack with a suitcase. Now enjoy this beautiful video and make sure to share it! So what are you waiting for? Head over to Lego Ideas and hit the support button to make this become a Lego set! This model was built in Mecabricks and rendered using Blender. Special thanks to zanna for making the awesome pictures and the video! It doesn't only need a good model to make a great project but also a cool way of presenting it. Make sure to check out his Flickr account for more amazing images! Thanks for checking out our post. Make sure to support, comment and share!
  13. Very cool idea! :) However I have a few questions: Are you allowed to compete as a team of two people? And finally why exactly can we only use bricks that are available in the right colour in real life?
