once upon a time...
Oh no, it was an orange 11x3 curved panel that was in my hands after dismantling the Porsche 42056.
I had just read about the existence of the contest.
What can I do with this panel? It suddenly found itself oriented in such a way that it reminded me of the door of an Izetta! I had found my model.
Looking for photos, technical information, a little puzzled about the engine, the idea quickly drifted towards a sporty, crazy, unbridled version. As I have it at hand, the MOC will be equipped with the flat 6 of the Porsche!
The only thing left to do was to find a name for it. The Izetta had a modern interpretation in the form of the Microlino imagined in Switzerland. I will therefore opt for a synthesis of the two. So here is "Ize'lino", the most dangerous micro car to drive ever designed!
Suspension: Double wishbones at the front with torsion bars (7L axles) and single rear pendulum suspension.
A view of the engine
Steering: There is a HOG at the rear as on the technic sets of this scale, and the steering wheel is connected to the steering wheel through gears. It's a steering rack for a better précision.
Tilting of the steering wheel:
As I couldn't make it linked to the front door, I had the idea to ensure the movement by a mini LA controlled by a cascade of gears with the Z12 black gear on the left side behind the front left seat.
here are the different gears and axles to drive the functions. Blue for steering, green for tilting the sterling wheel, and orange for transmission from engine to rear wheels.
The door opens manually
The rear trunk can also be opened:
On the look side, there are front headlights attached to the mirrors and front turn signals integrated into the spoiler.
At the rear, there are red lights, reversing lights and turn indicators.
The front spoiler can be swivelled to allow mounting on the car carrier truck.
Finally, the rear spoiler on top of the rear window allows the car to hit the ground at very high speed!
The dimensions are L=33 x W=15 (side mirrors not included) x H=14
