    Updated my MOC, smoothened out the front of the car and made better pictures.

    Hillclimb Rally Car - Gravel Trim-

    Hello fellow Legofreaks! May I present to you, my newest creation! This is a large scale model of a typical Time Attack // Hillclimb rally car. These are timed point-to-point racing events on various track surfaces -like gravel, tarmac or a mix- where there is only one goal: complete the course as fast as possible. Thanks to the very open and liberal rules of those events those cars feature very powerful engines and spectacular aero packages. Downforce in excess of nearly twice the weight of the car at 100mph and engines that create up to 1000 horsepower are not unheard of. My model consist of approx 900 parts and features proper steering, a completely modeled interior with roll-cage, 6-cylinder turbo engine and of course all the sensible downforce creating aerodynamic devices like a swan-neck rear wing, huge rear diffuser, front splitter, ankle cutters, Gourneys etc. etc. The car is sporting a heavy gravel trim, which means slim heavily profiled tires and elevated ride height. I hope you like it!

    Looks great so recognizable at this very small scale. I especially like how the front turned out.

    I think beautiful is what beautiful does. With 12700 tons and 64 meters total height it was the biggest earth moving machine ever built, even bigger than Big Muskie. There is even a cast model of it:

    Classic 1990 Ferrari Formula 1

    Thank you all for the nice comments, I really appreciate it !! Thank you! Funnily, the hardest part was to find a proper solution to mount the front wing. I had to integrate the nose into it and at the same time find a good mounting solution that was both compact and sturdy. I came up with several ways to attach the wing to the nose but they were all problematic because they all resulted in mounting the front wing so low that it nearly scraped across the floor. Those that did not were too clumsy. Finally, this solved all of the problems, sturdy, small and the wing is slightly more than 1 tile off the ground:

    Cat 7495 electric rope shovel 2018

    Those were among my favorite machines back when I was a kid, and I still love the gigantic drag lines, strip shovels and mining excavators. Your is stunningly beautiful and very well executed, especially with the lights on it looks just like the real thing. Its wonderful. How about the Marion 6360 as next project? Go big or go home as they say.
