    [MOC] Ferrari 250 GTO

    It does but the blanking panels are in place. All GTO were like this. It is is possible to blank off the vent on my model too with 6x 60483. Sadly I forgot to take a picture of this.

    [MOC] Dino 246 (based on 42115)

    No Miura (yet). I made another classic Ferrari. I learned how a Watts linkage works too now! About 4 weeks.
  4. Based on Sterling Moss Ferrari 250 GTO chassis 3505GT. Includes 5 speed gearbox, live axle with Watts linkage and room for a spare wheel. Instructions on Rebrickable https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-54154/JamesJT/ferrari-250-gto/#details
  5. I made a 1:7 scale Dino 246. It is based on 42115 but with extra green parts and the wheels and hubs from 42110. It has a five speed gearbox with a H pattern shift. It is actually a 6 speed using the wave selector but with 1st gear blanked off. Instructions and parts list are on rebrickable. The extra parts are much cheaper from the lego website than on bricklink. https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-52289/JamesJT/ferrari-dino-246-gtb/#comments
  6. Maybe do this one in red too? Dino 246 1:7 by James Tillson, on Flickr Dino 246 1:7 by James Tillson, on Flickr
  7. Smart Roadster made from just the parts in 42115. It has a De Dion rear axle just like the real thing. Instructions on rebrickable https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-49736/JamesJT/smart-roadster-42115-b-model/#comments
  8. It looks way better in red than white or black. I can't understand why lego don't make the arch panel in red. Dino and Stratos are related so it made sense to use that same chassis. Looking forward to seeing a complete red dino!
  9. I am going to try this with 42115 but it make have to be MOC rather than B model. Halfway through my second 42115 B model and I'm loving the new arches but lack of 7x3x2 lime panel is an issue. WHY can't we have a full palette in just one colour??? Thank you. I spend 80 to 100 hours making these models, I'm happy that you like and spent time looking at the details. Sorry about the front shell. I could have put the pivot point further forward but I could see the bracket and it spoiled the look My models never get many comments on Eurobricks but I rarely comment on others posts; It's karma! My i8 only got 2 replies. Let me know what you think of the gearbox. Its an odd one as half of it is transverse.
  10. Lamborghini Miura made from just the parts in 42056. Features Steering Suspension Transverse mini V12 4 Speed gearbox with H pattern lever Pop-up headlights Opening doors and clamshells.

  11. All good ideas! Lets hope Lego need to use more lime green soon. Finding info on the Enzo aero was tough. There is a flap in the front somewhere that opens but I couldn't find out where. On this MOC the spoiler tilts up as you go through the gears, at least it moves even if its not in quite the right way. There were almost all the system parts and lots of black panels left over, lots of unused black 9L beams too. There is an inventory of what was used on Rebrickable. You can "compare" it to 42115 to see the unused parts.
  12. Thank you. I should check my Flickr account more often. I saved time by not building the Sian. They call it "50 shades" on Facebook. Even parts of the same type are different. Thank you. I always try to get them as smooth as possible. Agreed. I wish there were another a small green car to add in. Which other sets lime technic in?
  13. Wow. This is the first Lego competition I have won. Considering the quality of the entries I am genuinely shocked and honored. Thank you TLCB.
  14. My first B model for 42115 is a Ferrari Enzo. Features. Steering V12 Engine Push-rod suspension 6 Speed gearbox with paddle shift (2 speed + 3 speed) Automatic 3 stage rear spoiler Opening doors, hood and engine cover.

    [MOC] BMW i8

    1:8 Scale BMW i8 made with 42056 and 42093 (with 2 extra black arch panels) Optional electric FWD. Instructions by GeyserBricks on Rebrickable https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-43958/GeyserBricks/bmw-i8/#comments
