  1. This was mentioned earlier in this thread. Does anyone know if this is a realistic function, or just something that was added to make the opening rear less boring?
  2. Some of the 1st half sets are available in the US now at Toys R Us. I think they are available from Shop at Home tomorrow.
  3. I am not going to lie. I was discussing this model with Paul Boratko on Facebook and he told me about it. I didn't even know there was a rally car that had this type of engine placement.
  4. The Mack truck looks absolutely amazing. Granted it uses system bricks to achieve it's looks, but still, it looks great. And the Garbage Truck B-Model looks like it could be it own main A-Model. That rally car..... Well it's different I guess. I suppose when the rear hatch is lifted that sides in front of the rear wheels also open as a double action feature. I guess they wanted to add some excitement to the normally basic opening mechanism, even though it is kind of odd.Those curved 3 x 11 panels just don't do it for me though. I don't like wheel arches to be so square like that, it looks very odd from the side. That was one thing that drove me crazy about the 42039. I guess it is based off of the Lancia Rally 037 due to it's mid engine placement.

    It looks to be a nice model, but he'll never sell that many models in a year. And the only way he'll get any real selling exposure for them is possibly listing them on Ebay. He might get a bite on a couple of them, but I am skeptical. I've seen people trying to sell Sheepo's Mustang model for a few thousand dollars and they couldn't even get that. That model had a huge $ amount of parts in it. Advertising a high price model with no video isn't going to help either. He does have a fortune already invested in each model, but good luck trying to get that back out of them along with a profit. Well known builders don't get that kind of money in charity auctions for their work.
  6. The cars do look similar, but I was mainly talking about the height of the grill making it look a little bit like an Audi. Out of curiosity, how did you manage to connect the rear spoiler to the wishbone suspension parts?
  7. Nice job. Another good car pumped out in so little time. I am kind of mixed on it though. The height of the front end gives it an Audi look. Also, the beams over flex axles technique for the wheel arches doesn't quite seem to work as they are giving it curves that don't exist on the real car. Perhaps they were not needed on this particular moc.

    Impressive for such a small model.

    Is this a MOC or was it built from instructions? When I had first seen the picture on the homepage, I thought that it was a new bricksonwheels model.
