  1. I've been into the update of old sets in the last couple of years, so it was just a matter of time before I tried to update Set 8440 from 1995. Set 8440 is simple with only steering a V-6, and a rear differential, but I thought I could add some features. Turns out I really couldn't . I stared with building the original 8440 in studio, and making it trans light blue as introduced by @Seasider for TC20. I placed a couple of panels and wheels to get an idea of where to place the "hardpoints." The wheels would be a little bigger, but I felt it would be a good place to start. Off to work I went. I placed the panels early, and worked on the rear engine and transmission. I had hoped to add some sort of suspension, but lost interest in this part of the project. I kept spending time on the engine details and, for whatever reason, the front wing. Considering how these details would have had to be cut back to add a suspension, I'm happy with the direction I settled on. Eventually it came together, and I'm happy with how it turned out. (I'm trying new photo setup, and still have some kinks to work out) The engine cover is removable, and the front and rear wing are easily removable. I think it pays homage to the original 8440 well, but you can see the comparison below, and the final new over old overlay render (I really love these). A video to show off the few features of the build, and one of those fun little speed render builds. Enjoy. Finally, I have made free PDF instructions which you may find at I'm trying to keep most of my builds free, so I hope you are able to enjoy them. It's an easy build with common parts, so if you need to scratch your nostalgia itch, go crazy. I'll take requests for other old sets to build, so let me know what I should do next.
