    [MOC] Ferrari Enzo (2003)

    I think moving the front a stud backwards could help. The 1/2 stud offset in front of the headlights is gone, but I think it still looks quite like an Enzo:

    [LDD MOCs] imvanya's sports cars

    Decided to update one of my older cars, the Muscle car. The one thing that's been bugging me all this time was the emptiness of the front grille. Now I've finally come up with a solution for it that I am happy with: At least now it looks like something that a front grille design could look like. Anyway, the links for the files are available in the original post at the link above.

    [MOC] Brick Bridge

    Beautiful. One of those things that would've been built sooner or later

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    According to Bricklink, it's 5 studs: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=35189&idColor=85#T=C&C=85

    [LDD MOCs] imvanya's sports cars

    @supertruper1988, thanks for sharing the instructions! I have actually thought of a more "buildable" solution for the rear end to avoid using the trans orange parts, but keep the look interesting. The 1x6 tile can be replaced with a 1x6 plate (the 4x1 bows allow a 1/2 stud offset) and 1x1 Trans-red round tiles may be used as tail lights:

    [LDD MOCs] imvanya's sports cars

    Another few months have passed, and I finally completed another MOC. I am still experimenting with brick-built canopies, this time I ended up using ninja swords among other things. Once I used another ninja-related piece - ice cream scoop that was used by Lloyd of Ninjago fame in one of the sets - it became obvious that the car had to be something Japanese. So, here is Tsuba: You can download the .lxf here (a few parts are missing), the model is also available at Mecabricks here. As usual, comments and critique are welcome!

    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    Do you mean something like this: ? 2854 lacks the "good elevation", but it looks like an escalator to me It's a little bit hard to understand which way you want the axles/pins to be relative to the part you are looking for. Maybe it's just me, but some context will definitely help.
  10. That would be great, it is one beautiful car. I kind of based one of my MOCs on it: XVK It is in no way a scale model, but I really like the rear lights and the roof angle, and that is what I tried to capture. Sadly, as is often the case with LEGO, some of the curves on the original car are to smooth to capture in the brick.

    VIG: The Noir Detectives find a large clue

    Reminded me of the Elder Sign tabletop game, this is basically what clue tokens look like: I really like the photo, it captures the noir atmosphere very well!

    My LEGO City and Car MOCs

    Hey CodyCorvetteZR1, thanks for sharing! You've captured the look of those executive 4-doors very well, the color also adds some more executive-ness. Looking forward to seeing more MOCs from you!

    [LDD MOCs] imvanya's sports cars

    @CodyCorvetteZR1, welcome to Eurobricks! Thank for sharing your MOC, it looks pretty cool. I really like the color scheme, it does remind me of Viper GTS. If you have more MOCs, please share them as well! That said, I originally created this topic to share my personal MOCs, but apparently it never occurred to me that the name of the topic is too generic. I should probably change it at least to "My sports cars" So, if you plan on staying at Eurobricks, I would recommend creating a topic for your MOCs so that it's easier for people to find them. Just remember to give it a good name And you should definitely stick around - there are tons of cool MOCs here, and folks are very friendly and supportive. From my own experience I can tell you that with all the inspiration and comments you will very soon learn some cool new techniques, and you will see your MOCs evolve and improve with every new one. Once again, welcome to Eurobricks!

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    @Erik Leppen, true, that's definitely something you can't change by simply building something different than a Bugatti But I actually referred to the fact that being dark blue the rims are limiting in terms of rebuilding the Chiron in other color schemes. Once again, they might work with black+blue, but with no blue the rims would probably look out of place. I am not a Technic builder myself, but I feel for Technic fans (especially purists) in that LEGO offers very few realistic rims. You have wheel covers from the Ferraris and Lamborghinis, which are not that cheap and are mostly for the smaller wheel molds, and then only Porsche and Bugatti wheels for this scale. And while black Porsche rims are quite universal, you can't easily replace them with the Bugatti ones unless you use the new hub as well, and on top of that they are dark blue.

    42083 - Bugatti Chiron

    OT: I'm not sure if anyone would actually be interested in doing this, but - Bugatti rims look pretty similar to Opel (Vauxhall/Holden) Astra OPC (VXR) rims. They should be black on the Astra, but since it is blue anyway, dark blue could work: There've been some complaints about poor re-usability of the rims, now there's a solution that no-one asked for
