Hi all, this is a suggestion of a range of widths of vehicles suitable to be used within a town in "larger city scale", as I call it, meant to go well with the larger CC buildings like PC, GE or FB. In fact it's no exact scale (which would be very difficult) but a possibility to get a graduation between different types of vehicles supposed to go well with each other. From right to left: Roadster (6w), fits 2 figs side by side. Oldtimer car (6w+ = 6w plus mudguards), fits 2 figs side by side, usual measure of vintage cars. There are vintage cars fitting 3 figs, too. Offroader (modded 4437 SUV, probably my favourite City car, 6w+), fits 1 fig, just to show that this kind of TLG car goes well with the MOCs. Sports car (6w+), due to the special design this car (Mad Max Interceptor, recently shrinked from 7w+ to 6w+) only fits one driver and one dog which is sufficient here, this type of car is also possible with 2 figs side by side. Full-size car (7w), fits 3 or even 4 figs, as an LCS slot car the Checker Cab is equipped with steering and rear suspension. Full-size car, long vehicle (7w), the Ecto-1 fits 4 ghostbusters. Bus (7w+), the usual size of trucks and buses, the School Bus fits a whole bunch of figs, Monorail trains have the same width. Oversize truck (8w+), fits 2 figs, not to be used within the city where plain 8w vehicles don't seem to work, but as an ARFF the Faun will rarely be seen there. 8w will probably be the width of trains, too. Will be continued. Some types of vehicles are still missing, small cars like a Mini or 2 CV would probably have a width of 5w+, and there will be some trucks, too. Thanks for looking, c&c welcome as usual.
Long while since I posted. I've built a few things since I last posted, but this is something I'm particularly happy with (minus how fragile it is in places..) Here's the set with full-res images: Flickr Set Here's where I pulled much of my inspiration. If anyone knows who this person is, please give them my praise. Great stuff here!
I made the prototype for these cars quite some time ago but I recently updated them with some more appropriate part usage (small changes to the design and new wheels and/or grills). They may look alike but besides the color there are more ways in which they are different. So far the most obvious flaw IMO are the studs on the tail (which is not the case on the black one but that onde doesn't really look better). Anyway, more pictures in my Brickshelf Folder, as well as building instructions
