I built 2 pickup alternates from Creator Expert sets. The first one is from the 10265 Mustang set, and to keep within the theme and time period I decided to go for a Ford F100 from 1970. The model includes steering by HoG, opening bonnet, doors and tailgate, a detailed interior and engine. Once done I thought why not try to build a pickup model from the 10252 Volkswagen Beetle too? So that's just what I did with this vintage American pickup truck somewhere from the 1930's. It has similar features as the 10265 alternate except for the steering function, which was not possible.

This is a redesigned, custom version of Creator Beetle (10252), which I've wanted to do since it came out. A lot of people complained, saying the Lego model looked more like a Citroen 2CV. I personally think it's a great model, with all its details. I have nothing against it. That said, I do think the shaping could look more a little more like the real thing and I wanted to give it a shot. It's quite the challenge, with all its curves. There are only so many dark azure pieces to work with. I figured lowering it as much as possible would also add to that difficulty (not to mention it's hilarious). It took a lot of time and figuring out, but this is the result, which I'm mostly happy with, considering what I had to work with, the goal, and the comically large new fender pieces. All chrome is original Lego, except the wheels. They're real Lego wheels, chromed by another company (randomly found browsing Bricklink one day). The 8-ball shifter knob is from Killer Croc Tail-Gator (70907), the shifter stick from Frightening Knight (CMF s15), the tinted windshielf from Mini Cooper (10242), and the "love" tile on the dash is from the Yellow Submarine (21306). These pieces are unique to those sets and relatively recently produced for the first time, along with many of the Beetle's dark azure parts. Meaning this car couldn't have been built at all a couple years ago.
Hi! I hope I am posting this at the right place. I just wanted to share a project I have been working on for the Lego Beetle. Basically, I have made improved license plate stickers, because I think the ones you get with the kit just looks awful. Before I print these for myself, I wanted to see if there is interest for a bulk print of these. I did set up a micro-crowdfunding which needs at least 25 supporters here: https://www.tilt.com...-for-lego-10252 Thank you!
