Norton74 posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingIt isn’t easy seeing Hot Rod or T-Bucket where I live and honestly I was never interested about Kustom Kulture world (I did not even know what they was ...). Then I saw some models of other international LEGO builders and I was impressed. I like a lot the "T-Bucket", built on the basis of the 20's Ford T with a custom frame and a big V8 engine. While I was waiting for some pieces from some Bricklinkers to make a new large MOC (I’m going to share it as soon as possible…), I built my sixties style T-bucket (during the ‘14 Christmas holiday). Here it is. Below my T-Bucket in californian style, with a Deus ex Machina surfboard on the seat... My LEGO T-Bucket has the two-seater body of a ’23 Model T roadster with a back turtle deck (inside there is the gasoline tank). A Model T radiator is fitted and a powerful Chevrolet V8 small-block with a Supercharger send power to the big rear tyres. The body and the turtle deck can be separated by the chassis and you can see the transmission. One of the detail I prefer are the exhaust pipes made by 4 mm hoses. It hasn’t been easier push four hoses inside the “Tree Palm Trunk”… It was fun to build it and it surely will not stay alone… As usual on my flickr stream you can find out more info and pictures... I wait for you there... Follow me also on Norton74 brand new facebook page. All the best! Andrea - Norton74
I built different hot rods and T-buckets in the past few months: a Green T-bucket, a Tow Rod, a classic black Roadster, Show Rods... ...but this time I built a unexpected machine... a '23 Ford T-bucket in pure Steampunk-ish style. This little machine features classic T-Bucket elements - an oversize small-block V-8, a short and reinforced chassis, drag slicks, "T" style radiator - mixed with Steampunk characteristics. Black, gold and brown colors are really a great combo and they seem looking tasteful on this little strange vehicle. Even if there are two pipes above the engine, necessary to exhaust the steam, this "T" can also use petrol, it's a sort of hibrid car...in fact on the back you can see the gas tank. Here the Steampunk "T" is photographed on my Garage. All the best and happy building! Andrea - Norton74
Norton74 posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingHello, today I show you my latest MOC: the "Green T". Even if I don't live in "The Golden State" I love the strange vehicles called "T- buckets". Seeing these Buckets moving from a beach to another is very usual in California, where I live a little bit less... Anyway, the "Green T" is my last MOC and it's my pride and joy (especially photographed in my Speed Garage). This genuine T-bucket has the two-seater body of a Model T roadster with a little turtle deck in the backside. A full chromed Model T-style radiator is fitted. The big V8 sends power to the oversized rear wheels, with the typical dog dish hubcaps, through the strong drivetrain. A big charger is fitted on the top of the engine. This time I've used many chromed bricks and I think they look great on the "Green T". I love also the white-green color combo. Here few pictures: The front with the typical Model T-style radiator The back with the custom plate... Enjoy the "Green T" and discover the new equipments featured in the "Speed Garage" The "Green T" has been blogged by: The Brothers Brick Brick Nerd The Lego Car Blog More pictures and details on flickr Thanks for your attention. All the best and happy building! Norton74 - Andrea Lattanzio Norton74 @ Facebook Norton74 @ LEGO IDEAS
