  1. Agree with the second half (where there were probably other legal solutions that looked good), but disagree with the notion that the technique used in the door is actually somehow that concerning for the parts involved. That is such a shallow angle and is not a load bearing structure, damage to parts from that angle is a moot point. I think it comes down to principle more than anything. Oh the car looks great btw! Love the 992 911R
  2. They should’ve made this a generic technic supercar. It looks nothing like a cayman
  3. One thing I’ve always appreciated about your cars is how rugged they seem. Lots of pretty RC cars that can’t handle the abuse without falling into pieces, but you seem to manage to strike the best of both worlds with good looking, yet robust models!! Good job! One minor note - to me it seems like the grill is a stud too wide at the bottom, not sure if it’s just an illusion
  4. Cool, that sounds great! Thanks for the pointer
  5. As the topic states, looking for opinions on what vendor carries the best custom 1:8 scale wheels for supercars. Not too fussy on the designs, but looking for flexibility in colors mostly. Preferably looking for injection molded parts instead of 3D printed as well.
  6. I like it as a set, but from the front it doesn’t really look like a Ford GT to me. Looks more like a Maserati MC12
  7. Gawd 😭😭 I love this so much. The proportions are so spot on, and the bodywork is ultra clean. The only thing that I love slightly less is the connector usage at the front, but you definitely make it work.
  8. Not to be a negative Nancy, but I think the realistic A-pillars is a step backwards. I get that it’s more true to real life, but this is definitely a place where some artistic liberty is a good thing. When you lose that suggested curvature of the windshield it messes with the proportions of the car, imho.
  9. Personally not a fan of those lights @LegoHoops have you tried trans clear bionicle teeth? These just look too big and blocky
  10. This is absolutely brilliant, please tell me you're planning on finish it!
  11. I see your point, but use of panels shouldn’t preclude using them IMO. Look at Bruno’s or Jeroens designs… a harmonious mix of both
  12. Something I noticed while looking at the 42141 MCL F1 car was the complete lack of any flex axles. I miss the suggested lines and curves achieved by using flex axles to create a more organic, smooth design. The new car looks way too jagged and rough around the edges IMO. Discuss.
  13. Uh this is a sore disappointment. The paneling around the side pods are a complete letdown… come on Lego!
  14. I don’t really understand the backlash either. It’s clearly NOT a blatant copy paste of Jorge’s F40, at least in terms of the bodywork. Yes it was inspired by it, but the builder gave him credit and did the right thing. If I was Jorge I would be proud that my MOC is so legendary that people are basing their MOCs off of it… To OP, it’s stunning! Great job with the paneling, I love how it’s covered but not cluttered. That’s a hard line to walk.
  15. @Ngoc Nguyen I appreciate the well thought out response! I guess I approached this build with a different mindset but I now your understand perspective on C-models. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this model, in fact it’s far better than anything I could produce. I was just wondering what you would be capable of building using…well all the parts instead of a select few! But I understand your approach to it, and at the end of the day if this brings you joy then that’s what counts!
