Recently I've spent a lot of time MOD'ing other sets, but on the odd occasion, i make something original. Tinkering away one night, I decided to move away from the countless similar sports cars I design and try to make something thats still sporty, but a bit beefier. So I pulled up a picture of the Range Rover Evoque, and got to work, eventually finishing with this:
I was pretty happy with what I'd come up with after two and a half hours. But I thought to myself, "This could still be beefier...." So i added some beef!
Say hello to the newest vehicle in the Lego City Police Department's fleet! Fitted with a V8 (hence the raised bonnet section) a heavy bullbat to protect the front, a full complement of blues and twos and some high powered radio communications. This vehicle can be used in some of the fastest pursuits, but also doubles as a temporary communications base until the Mobile Police Unit turns up on the scene.
I attempted to add some underside detailing, to show how the vehicle has a hardened chassis.
The top of the vehicle is where the reporting number is located.
And of course it fits one very cool Police Officer! No need to take his hat off here.
The main aim since the beginning of designing this was to create a vehicle that would fit in between the scale of the typical 4 wide saloon and hatchback vehicles of City, and the bigger, 6 wide 4x4's. I don't have any built up 4x4's right now, but the prisoner transport van makes a good enough comparison.
I hope you liked checking this out, and feel free to leave comments and criticism!
