    Quietly enjoying everything you post of course, but I have to specifically mention how much I adore this. Amazing job.
  2. Thanks, that's very kind of you to say! I appreciate it. That was my hope! All right, another new one: 1940 GMC Pickup Truck This is pretty outside of my ordinary range, but a viewer on my LEGO Twitch stream requested it, so here we are! It was pretty fun to shape, and I've never prominently used bright light yellow before. I'm particularly happy with the headlights, which took a while to solve.
  3. 1969 Chevrolet Corvette C3 This was inspired by how much I disliked LEGO's official Speed Champions C3. In fact, I started working on it on the 2nd of May, immediately after images of the official build were revealed! I wanted to take my own shot at it in my preferred 6-wide scale. I focused largely on the aspects I thought came up short on the official one: the roof line, the windscreen, the curvature of the rear deck, and the shaping of the bodywork over the fender arches. I'll be honest, I'm completely thrilled with how this one turned out! I think it's one of my best and I almost made a new thread just to show this one off. Oh, also, the rear deck clip assembly that holds the luggage rack is easily reversible so the rack can be added or removed in seconds.

    New LEGO Speed Champions 2021 Rumors, Speculation

    I will die on the hill of the 6-wide Speed Champions cars! Classic SC forever! ...To answer you directly, I just don't display them side-by-side, hah.
  5. Thanks! In honesty, I'm working through a backlog of completed designs right now. I have 3 more, finished and ready to be photographed and posted, with a couple more nearly completed behind those.
  6. Thanks! I've only gotten to use those big curved slopes on 2 cars so far, but they work really well for their purpose. 1985 Toyota Hilux 4 x 4 Marty's truck from Back To The Future! I started with the fenders and sculpted everything else out around those. This build uses 51 SNOT bricks and brackets, nearly 1/5 of all of its pieces. The wheels have independent suspension, though the large tires prevent much travel.
  7. You're quite welcome! Here's a little something else: 1999 Mercury Cougar I mainly built this because it was my partner's very first car, but it was fun tackling a car shaped so differently than what I usually build. Plus, I finally got to do something in dark green! I'm especially pleased with how the headlights and taillights turned out on this one.

    Kinda wanna just buy that set and spend an afternoon doing all your alternate builds.
  9. Oh, gotcha. Sure, I have a RB page most of these get posted on. The Daytona's instructions are free due to the strangeness of the techniques used - I don't like to charge people if I feel it's anything less than a smooth building experience: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-78585/Carbohydrates/1969-dodge-daytona/#details

    New LEGO Speed Champions 2021 Rumors, Speculation

    Hm... I couldn't possibly believe a leak or anything. It has graphics across multiple pieces, which LEGO will not do in a modern production set. Not saying they couldn't make a set BASED on that model, but this reminds me more of when LEGO built a Hoonicorn as a gift for Ken Block - it was sadly never made into a set.

    New LEGO Speed Champions 2022 Rumors, Speculation

    Personally, I'd also swap out the Dodge Demon. We just had Challengers in 2019 and 2021, so some variety from that may be nice. We've kind of run through the modern muscle options, but there's an enormous pool of classic stuff to explore! I'd imagine 2022 is going to be fairly non-US-centric though, and we sure don't need another Dodge set so soon anyway.
  12. Thanks! I appreciate your kind words. The hood and spoiler both took a lot of work and multiple rebuilds before I was finally happy with them. Here's another new build finished: 1965 Ford Mustang Station Wagon These are so goofy, I couldn't help but want to build one! I chose a pretty classic Mustang color scheme that allowed me to use a lot of pearl gold, which is really striking in person. The interior is 2-tone medium nougat and dark orange, too. Sculpting the recessed sides / intakes was a really fun challenge.

    New LEGO Speed Champions 2022 Rumors, Speculation

    It almost certainly will be. The Speed Champions team deliberately diversifies the lineup from year to year, and this year's was US-centric mainly because 2020 had no American cars at all. They keep a good balance when you consider the big picture.
  14. Hey, thanks! I don't know what that means, though.
