  1. This is my 1.20 version of the Lexus LC500. Building instructions where you can change the color here: The car turned out to be the most complicated scale LEGO model that I have ever built! To highlight the complexity of this model, I have built this cut-out version highlighting the hinges, brackets and other SNOT parts that lie under the surface: It started in 2017 where I started planning and simply had to scrap the project due to a lack of ideas for how to create the finer details. In 2020 I started the project up again This is the version I had completed by December 2020: It was shown in LEGO Masters Denmark 2021. However. I was not satisfied with the results and started all over. This time I measured the real car instead of relying on pictures. This white version shows how I'm experimenting with different building techniques in the two sides. The final car took several straight months of building and rebuilding, so I hope that you enjoy the result, and perhaps the building instructions. That said, in the video you can also see how far from the real car the design is. LEGO is an imperfect medium, and this is the best result that I have been able to achieve.
  2. This model has taken me waaayyy too long to finish. It is a scale model of my very own car with interior and opening everything. In this video I go through all the details, building techniques and compare it to the real car so that you can see how the details measure up and where I have had to take compromises (hint - compromises are absolutely everywhere!) There are also building instructions. Here are the instructions for the normal car with normal tan interior and no roof box or roof rack: This is how my own car looked when I moved to Germany: and here it is recreated in LEGO: As always I use Griddy to design the model: It was first in 2016 that the front began looking acceptable: As you can see, the lower part of the grille and some details have remained unchanged. The major upgrades have been in the grille, logo, and especially how the chrome wedges are connected to the hood. I continued building the car even with the deficiencies of the front: Here you can see how I planned the doors, and there are some obvious things that were changed in the final version: I am using a lighter color of hub caps which look more like the stock rims. The wheel guards in the rear are no longer simple arches, and the battery cooling intake on the inside didn't survive in the latest version. Here is a rear shot of the same model: As you can see, very little has changed with the rear bumper: Only the 1x2 curved slopes have replaced the 1x3 ones here, and the rear hatch has been completely remodeled. Later the same day I made some mock-ups for the doors: and again you can see that the doors have very little in common with the final version: There is no sloping of the B-pillar, and the door handles have been moved up. Between 2016 and 2020 I didn't take proper progress pictures. This was always a project that I had my ups and downs with, since it turned out to be quite a struggle to get even somewhat right. But here it is - the final version. If you enjoy strange SNOT building techniques, then I think you will have a lot of fun watching the video :) Up next? Probably the LC. Only time will tell.
  3. Update: See final model in the last post of this thread. This is a scale 1:20 (Legoland Miniland scale) BMW M8 GTE. I built this car for Le Mans in 2018 and brought it to the race for some pictures because, why not. The car was initially built from pictures and size information available before the big race. This is why it has a big ///M-logo on the roof. As always I have been using Griddy for the design and this was the setup I was using during the initial design: Stickers and updated pictures became available shortly before Le Mans and I had just enough time to remove the ///M logo and get stickers made before leaving for the race. There was no time for a nice picture of the car before leaving, but here it is right in front of the real deal: And we were also allowed out on the track itself on the Friday before the race. Here it is together with the other GTE PRO race cars next to the historical Dunlop bridge Now. The thread title says [WIP] instead of [MOC]. This is because I have only been spending 3 weeks on the car before it was brought to Le Mans in 2018. Now I want to improve it before making building instructions as has been done with most of the other cars (only the Vantage and M8 are currently not done). One of the details I want to improve is the front. The "hood" on the real car has a significant slope. In the LEGO model that should translate into a lowering of the headlights. In order to do this I have reduced the height of the lower assembly from 2 to 1 brick in height: I also want to see if it is possible to make a more realistic headlight design. Option 1 is this one with 1x1 plates with tooth in trans black, while another option could be what you see on the other side: I am personally partial toward the original headlight design as it looks more "BMW like", but I would love for others to give their input and nudge me in the right direction of this design which has been bothering me for... well 2 years now. Update on July 7, 2020 I have decided on continuing with a version that combines the trans black side as shown above with the original headlight design. This allows for the inside of the headlights to curve together, while the outside remains "BMW-like". Continuing with the sides. These are mostly carried over from the original design. The main changes here are the lower black trim pieces and the sides being pushed half a plate outward. The height is a massive change, as can be seen by placing the two cars with their noses next to one another One of my main challenges with the front is to get the fenders right. I might add 1x6 tiles over the wheels to recreate the sloping hood of the real car. The center of the hood also needs a complete overhaul with the angular ///M lines while maintaining the aero elements. The next update will most likely first be in 2 weeks, but any suggestions are as always welcome. Update on August 2, 2020 The new model is complete. It is now time to compare it to the previous model and the real deal. Starting with the front. Here The new model has the lower projectors reduced in height. This allows the whole nose to be lower, but also requires a sloping front end. I think the new nose is more accurate, and the change to the hood and fenders is acceptable. Ideally I would have smoother slope. The windscreen now contains a windscreen wiper (good), but my attempt at using wedge plates and staggered 1x2 black tiles has resulted in some unsightly gaps (bad) Moving to the top view, the roof has received additional detailing, such as antennae, grilles and an intake as on the real race car. Unfortunately my attempt at using a SNOT roof has caused the white lines to be too close together, and upper line of the side windows no longer flows as nicely. The graphics on the nose have been simplified. I prefer the simplified version, as the old one was a bit too blocky with the coloring. The colored lines neat the mounts for the rear wing have been reduced, as BMW updated the livery a bit before the cars raced at Le Mans. Even though the old version looks cooler, the new one is more accurate. The rear is almost all new. The design of the diffuser has been updated after clearer pictures arose, allowing me to build it more accurately. The size and shape of the rear lights is also more accurate now, while there is a small upper lip in the bodywork which has been included from the real car (not visible in these two pictures) The shaping of the front fenders and how they join the center of the car has been redesigned to be less blocky. This also allowed proper repositioning of the side mirrors. I will get back to the drawing, I mean, building board.
  4. This is my latest finished pair of Le Mans race cars from the 2017 race: Chevrolet Corvette C7.R. The scale is 1:20, like in Legoland. This is purely display model without interior, engine or functionality (apart from rolling wheels). There are building instructions here: The sticker sheet includes the stickers of the #63 and #64 models. Construction started after the race where I was asked to build this model. Members from my local LUG were helpful in giving me constructive criticism, and the design of the car only took around 3 weeks. As usual I use Griddy for the design document: Here are some shots from the construction process: You can see how I struggled with getting the lines on the sides right: And some times progress was... reversed: The body work below the windows was also a challenge: The rear end has mostly undergone refinements rather than complete redesigns: And the same can be said for the front: As you can see, I'm using both sides to experiment with various ideas: Also the roof has received many reconstructions. The transition between the windscreen and roof was difficult to get right: See how the windscreen is flush with the side windows, but not the roof here: Finally the car was finished and I added some simple paper-based stickers: I'm quite pleased with how the it was possible to build in this angular fashion and still end up with a easily recognizable result. Next up on my "2017 Le Mans GTE PRO" grid recreation will be either the Porsche, Ferrari, or Aston Martin. LEGO911 has already made a very nice Ford in this scale, so I will focus on those other models first... and of course the impossible TS050!
  5. Aston Martin Vantage AMR LMGTE PRO race cars from Le Mans of 2018 Building instructions for car #95 and #97, respectively: The difference between the two models is down to the stickers and color of the trim. However, since the 2x2 wedge plates used in the holes of the nose are not available in green, I had to redesign that section for the #97 car. The mounts for the diffusers also differ due to the availability of 1x2 x 2x2 brackets in green. The main reason for why it has taken me over 2 years to finish this car (the first prototype was built in March of 2018) would be the front: But the many revisions of the front has also allowed me to make many iterations of the other details, such as how the rear fenders are shaped: The fanciest part of the bodywork, however, has to be the single beam rear light. I have tried to recreate it as faithfully as possible in LEGO: Here is the first nearly-done version: As you can see, most details have been reworked since March 2018 where I started building this model. Back then we only had renders of the livery and it wasn't yet revealed that headlights would change from yellow to white. The race driver is Nicki Thiim, who was recently seen greeting the car after returning from Virtual Racing: Now I just have to finish the M8 and my project of building all Le Mans GTE PRO race cars from 2018 will finally come to an end.
  6. These are my 1:20 scale models of the Ferrari 488 GTE EVO race cars as they appeared at Le Mans in 2018. Ferrari was racing with 3 entries that year. Apart from the standard #51 and #71 cars, they also raced with car #52. Here is the video for car #52 where I also show the LEGO model that was brought to Le Mans: In the following video I break down the initial prototype and show all of the SNOT techniques within. The final models are mostly the same internally, which is why I am only featuring the breakdown in this one video: The prototype has taken approximately 3 weeks to complete, so it a bit more "finished" than the BMW M8 and Aston Martin Vantage that I will show later (they represent roughly 2 and a half week of work each) When I built this model, the reference pictures were all of the 488 GTE from last year with the extra headlights and high visibility "teeth" in the middle of the front opening. The headlights, as well as the front splitter are the only changes I have spotted on the new version and Ferrari is not saying much about what has changed to earn the "EVO" in the name of the car. Here are the dimensions the model is following: Length: 4568mm => 28,55 => 29 studs Width: 1952mm => 12 studs Height: 1213mm => 61mm Wheelbase: 2650mm => 16,56 => 17 studs And my list of changes to appear in the next prototype are: - Livery of the actual cars with white/red/gree/yellow/blue stripes and color blocks - Deletion of 4 headlights as previously mentioned - Changes in the diffuser (tan will replace the red and be used as detailing as well) - Tan for the inside of the wheel wells. - Yellow warning ring next to right rear light. - Change of rear bodywork to accommodate new livery. - Change of side panels to accommodate new livery (triangular color blocking near the barge boards). - Change in design of windscreen so it flows with the roof. - Maybe new side mirrors that are hinged on the outer side (if I can make that work). - Front hood opening right in front of the windscreen should be changed to a more curved design. - Turn around the robot arms holding the spoiler! I should also take a look at how the 1x2 tile next to the rear wheel is connected. It is not Kosher. From this top view you can better see how the sides flow into the body work. My favorite detail by far: And as usual. Please bring on all the critique you can muster. I am showing this early prototype of the car in the hope of getting as many improvements as possible before Le Mans. Thanks in advance :)
  7. This started back in November of 2017. The white version is finally finished, so I thought it would be about time to post it here. This is my Lexus LFA in Miniland scale, that is, scale 1:20. The black car was commissioned by Toyota Motor Europe and was built in record time with daily iterations. I go through everything, as well as the communication with the client in the video: With building instructions found here: Although the back side was what I liked the best with the black version, this is also the section that has received the largest amount of modifications in the white: And speaking of the white version, here is a video where I spend more than 13 minutes going through the changes: Building instructions here: Changes to the rear are mainly focused on adding curvature so it isn't flat: But there is also a series of other changes, as explained in the video: The exhaust pipes all have the same spacing, the grilles are placed correctly, the third rear light is thin, there is a small indent over the exhausts, the curves above the rear wheels is more accurate, as well as the rear top inlets. I can promise you that you will be in for a ride if you build one yourself - and if not, then there is a 100% money back guarantee! :D
  8. This is my take on the new C8 Corvette which was released recently. It is the first mid-engined Corvette and is going to retail for less than $60k in the US. With the performance numbers it is putting out, it might become one of the greatest disruptions we have seen in recent times. Characteristic for this model are the side scoops which you can option with contrasting colors (I have had a lot of fun with the online configurator), the mid-engined proportions and hard angles, such as at the engine cover, rear wing, nose and headlights. The most challenging part of the model was to get the nose and headlights right. This is how I started out: The headlights on the real car have LEG strips on the sides, but I was simply unable to fit them into the space available. The nose was also a bit too tall and I wanted to include the winglets in the side intakes. It took me a day, but I was able to make the updates to the front: Other changes from this version to the one you see in the top include new side intakes, updated windscreen and other minor improvements. Now. Would you like to see a fake engine and transparent engine cover?
  9. 3166 parts and a stupid number of evenings later and they are finally done: The GTEPRO racing Porsche 911 RSR cars from Le Mans 2018 in scale 1:20. Let's take them one by one. First we have the #91 car. It wore the Rothmans livery to celebrate 70 years of Porsche. Special for this car is how the gold (and pearl gold) parts form a (nearly) continuous line from the headlights to the trail lights. What I'm especially happy about is how I managed to add the bulge above the rear wheels. The #92 ran with the victory in the class. It wore the 'pink pig' livery in celebration of the 70 years. This was the most challenging car to build due to the low availability of bright pink parts. They were not all available when I first built the model in 2018, so I went to Le Mans with a multi-colored car, as can be seen in the video. But thanks for Overwatch, the car is not (almost) entirely pink! Car #93 was the first one that I finished. It has the 'standard' Porsche livery which also was present on the 919 prototype the year before. See my take on that car in this thread: The biggest challenge with this model was the brick built lines. I prefer not to use stickers to denote lines and pieces of the bodywork. The cars should also look fine without stickers. Car #94 will most likely try to forget there even was a Le Mans in 2018. They crashed in the first qualifier and retired early from the race. The car is almost the same as #93. The differences being white spoiler, side mirrors and different stickers. The building instructions are found here: #91 Rothmans Porsche: #92 Pink Pig: #93 Standard Livery: #94: Please reach out to me, or reply in this thread, with any questions you have regarding building the models, gathering parts, and so on. I am happy to help.
  10. Hello, Nine years ago i try to make a Replica of this Engine: Well since I improved a little bit my "skills" and there is much more Lego Parts then 9 years ago, this is my second try: CP 4700 Lego 1:20 Scale by Sérgio Batista, no Flickr

  12. Presenting my latest MOC, a 1:20 Tatra 815! It has 7 functions, 3 of which are RC. The drive can be switched from 4x6 to 6x6, to allow the model to drive (it has no diffs, so when steering the motors burn out when it's in 6x6 mode). The doors open and have locks, the seats are suspended, and the front axle has what I think is the smallest scale Tatra suspension ever with drive, suspension, and steering. All 6 wheels have Tatra suspension, and it works real well. Thanks, C&C please! Brickbybrick
