    Amazing shape, especially for this small scale! Love it.

    GT3 Racecar

    Huh, that I did not expect that, I find the wheelbase already long-ish. If I assume the width of the car is 190 cm (74.8''), at 16 studs wide 1 stud = 11.8cm. The wheelbase is 22 studs, so that gives the car a wheelbase of 260cm (102''). Now I checked the specs of some front engine sports cars , the Dodge Viper GTS has a wheelbase of 244cm, the Toyota Supra MK5 261cm, the Lister Storm GT (proper Racecar) 259cm - so my car is right in there, if not on the longer side.
  4. Hey! Wanted to show you my most recent creation, a 1974 Can-Am / Interseries racecar, approx 1000 bricks. Hope you like it, and as always, I appreciate constructive criticism! Can-Am was an open-top 2-seater prototype racing series from 1966-74 with very few rules, which resulted in cars that were faster, crazier and more powerful than even F1 in that era. V8s producing more than 900 BHP and cars weighing less than 650kg / 1430 lbs were the rule. (About the color choice of the windshield - those cars had windshields in all kinds of crazy colors, ranging from orange to green to even dark blue. Same with F1 in that era. Well, it was the 70's after all. )

    [MOC] World Time Attack

    Made some changes to the front, much smoother and better now.

    [MOC] Diogenes Trexler

    Thats the most original creation I have seen in a while, I tip my hat to your crazy brilliant mind and wish this was a set. Also medusnail and the hypnosis pic made me chuckle.

    [MOC] Mining Shovel

    Thank you all for your kind comments, I really appreciate them! There is more to come, I plan to build a strip shovel somewhere in the future, minifg sized of course. I also have a Flickr account, but its kind of messy and not very orderly: https://www.flickr.com/people/148744693@N04/

    [MOC] Mining Shovel

    Hey guys, may present to you my newest addition to the LEGO mining site! This is a minifig-sized 350 ton mining shovel, those are typically used to load blasted rock into big trucks.This machine is somewhat similar to the mining excavator I posted a few months ago, but this one is even larger and has a completely different shovel configuration, for different applications. It also features a lot more SNOT-work. I hope you like it!

    Thats a clever and refreshing MOC; love the way you did the dynamic fire!

    [MOC] World Time Attack

    Thank you for the kind words, I really appreciate it! Yeah, Honda is pretty rare or overlooked in LEGO MOCs so I thought about giving it a shot. Wheel fenders and steering was hard to get right, make the fenders too big and it looks ugly, make them too small and you cannot implement proper steering. I hope I got the balance right with my MOC.

    [MOC] World Time Attack

    Thanks!
  13. Hey guys, may I present to you my newest creation: A World Time Attack race car, consisting of 900 parts, with steering, fully modeled interior, doors, realistic aerodynamics and sponsor stickers from Amazon. World Time Attack racing is all about heavily modifying street cars trying to break lap records on racetracks all over the world. Thanks to extremely liberal rules those car often break Formula-3000 and touring car lap times. But enough talk! (5 pics)

    The color palette is interesting, very risky color combinations but it works extremely well here and makes the creation unique. Kind of reminds me of the color and lighting right after sunset. Also the brown technic connectors used for the window frames is a cool idea. I like it a lot!

    Waffles and Milk

    I love it, this is the first Lego creation that makes me hungry. At first sight I too thought that some parts of the MOC were not LEGO, but its just so well made.
