Porsche 914 Oooww, browsing the internet (again) looking for Porsche 914’s made of LEGO I came to this forum. Some time ago I posted my MOC of a Porsche 914 on another forum but that doesn’t seem to be so active as this one. Too late for the contest – why didn’t I find this forum earlier – but none the less my first entry to this forum, my Porsche 914, scale 1:8. It’s made around a load carrying monocoque body as the real one which allowed me to built all variants of the 914: the 914/4, the 914-6 but also the 914-8 with dual headlights. I’ve encluded a picture of the 914-8 displayed on the front hood of an actual ’74 914/4. Since the old posting I’ve made some refinements to the model; it includes: Trailing arm suspension in the rear Porsche suspension in the front mis-using an axle as a torsion spring Working headlights, single or dual Working Ackermann steering A working gearbox, but with only 2 gear ratios Fully adjustable seats An engine bay, accessible through the glove box, with a flat 4, 6 or 8 cylinder engine And next to the engine lid, the doors, and both trunk lids can be opened. A Triad exhaust on the 4 and 6 cylinder engine I hope you like the model, looking forward for your comments and/or replies, Kind regards, Wilbert 914-8 on the front hood of a ’74 Porsche 914 2.0 The model is built using parts from mine (old, with studs) and new, my son's stud-less, LEGO technic. On the inside of the open door an armrest and mock window crack are shown. My son pointed out that there should be a mirror on the drivers' side door. It's in the picture but wasn't on the old MOC, the first try. A view on the engine through the "glove box". Some details of the cockpit are also visible. On this CAD picture, the suspension and transmission are shown in detail. It's a picture of the "old" MOC; in the new the cooling air guides on top of the engine have been changed a little. The headlights can be raised and lowered by turning a knob on the center console that came with the appearance group package. Note: this is a picture of a 914/4 with bumpers in the same colour as the body. I didn’t have the parts to make a bumper with auxiliary headlights so no picture of that variant. But I’ve made that variant in CAD and put it on the last 914 variant, the 914 GT. Here you can see the 914-6 parked next to my son's 911 GT3 RS to show more or less the accuracy of the scale.
