  1. [MOC] Lotus 340R RC

    Dino is long gone (but immortalized on youtube).
  2. I found another use for clear 24116 panels... Lotus 340R. Lotus 340R 3 by James Tillson, on Flickr It has a LiPo, V2 and a buggy motor. It is only 600g and is way too fast for my kitchen. It has been crash tested (a lot). Lotus 340R 2 by James Tillson, on Flickr Lotus 340R 1 by James Tillson, on Flickr Video and better pictures coming tomorrow.
  3. (Ferrari) Dino 246 - Features RC, independent suspension, opening boot and hood, full tan interior. Photo instructions are free on youtube.
  4. [WIP] Dino 246

    No, the black 24116 panels are only £0.16 each on bricklink and there are thousands of them available. 20 of them are needed for this car.
  5. [WIP] Dino 246

    Thank you Mine too, until I start the next one. Can anybody see any rare parts? I used 5x black 16L flexi.
  6. [WIP] Dino 246

    Its all done. My Dino has a transverse Dino V6 engine. See flickr video below. IMG_3313 by James Tillson, on Flickr Video, pictures and instructions coming soonish.
  7. [WIP] Dino 246

    It was too low at the back, I moved the shock mounting point but now its too high. I will fix it when I finish the chassis. IMG_3311 by James Tillson, on Flickr I've got door cards and seats but no dash yet. IMG_3308 by James Tillson, on Flickr I also added chrome exhausts and pointed them upwards a little.

  8. [WIP] Dino 246

    I've finished the outside of my Dino. Just need to sort out the chassis and interior. Is anybody going to want to build this? Is it worth making instructions? I must be on to something good as TLCB wanted to blog the WIP pictures. IMG_3297 by James Tillson, on Flickr IMG_3300 by James Tillson, on Flickr IMG_3302 by James Tillson, on Flickr
  9. This has been gathering dust, waiting for the 8145 wheel trims to arrive. I hope it was worth it... 2014 VW XL Sport RC
  10. [WIP] Dino 246

    Ironic as DS was on my list but I thought the nose would be tricky. I think it was the camera angle so I took another from a different angle. IMG_3274 by James Tillson, on Flickr Yes, it all started with the rear window, its my favorite part of the build so far. I'm using this blueprint. Dino 7.8 by James Tillson, on Flickr The rear lights scale at 2L, the front are 3.6S so at 3 studs my lights are a little too small. My lights maybe too close together or too high, I haven't checked yet No plans except; If doors open it will highly detailed with gearbox and transverse V6. If the doors don't open I'll make its as light as possible and RC. I am planning a blue version of the Spider (GTS?) Thanks. You have an instantly recognizable style too and a PRO tag too! Well done, dude. I keep wanting to add more "shape" to the roof but the blueprint shows it so very flat. I will resist building how I want to to look for now. The rear is coming together slowly; more pictures on Flickr later tonight. IMG_3272 by James Tillson, on Flickr
  11. I put 2 trans-clear 24116 panels together last week and it looked like a Dino rear window. After a lot of experimenting with the new black panels with the old black panels.... Dino Rear Window by James Tillson, on Flickr Dino by James Tillson, on Flickr I haven't started the rear yet and the chassis is just a mule. I'd like to do the full tan interior (Kenobi will soon be missing his codpiece).
  12. I'm not sure why everybody thinks blue is limited. A #4 connector, 42003 perpendicular and #5/#6 long panel would be nice but all the other parts are available. Oh yes and I grabbed a load of cheap ones off bricklink yesterday. black panels by James Tillson, on Flickr I'm tempted to build a black XKSS, 63 Corvette or Pirelli Stratos (black arches and red wheels!) but I also have a few new ideas too. VW XL needed 8145 wheel trims to be truly finished so I bought some of those too (ouch) just waiting for them to arrive.
  13. Thanks for all the nice comments. Its all done but I'm back to work tomorrow so better pictures and a video will have to wait until the weekend. IMG_3213 by James Tillson, on Flickr IMG_3210 by James Tillson, on Flickr IMG_3216 by James Tillson, on Flickr
  14. I thought about switching to NSX, but shape is also similar to 959, VW Nardo, Noble M600 or a Le Mans racer. I will try a version of the lights using system bricks.
  15. Yes, they look orange on the real car. A couple of #5 and a 19L flexi may do it The bodywork is getting tighter around the wheels, I hope it will be OK without flexi on the arches. The rear diffuser fins are still on the to-do list . I will make a video probably with photo instructions. It looks more finish than it really is because I start from the outside and work my way in. It is crying out for a set of 8145 trims but I don't have any. A full set would cost me about £70 from bricklink so I tried a few ideas for wheel trims. I took pictures of the best two. I also changed the nose to make it look a little less Stan Smith. IMG_3200 by James Tillson, on Flickr IMG_3201 by James Tillson, on Flickr IMG_3202 by James Tillson, on Flickr
