  1. Hello everyone! Maybe it's too early, but let it happen. What do you think of the Speed Champions series in 2022? Do you think it will disappear or continue, or will it be under a different name? Anyway, personally, I think they will stay with us for a long time (after all, they have made specially new wheels for 2021). It seems to me that there is a good chance to see in 2022 in the SC series such cars: - BMW M8 (maybe GTE) - Pagani Zonda or Huayra - Ferrari - some F1 car - due to Toyota license can Toyota gr010 (hypercar) - maybe some cars from the DTM or VASC series Post comments about what you think.
  2. The LaFerrari represents Ferrari’s most ambitious project yet to push the boundaries of technology on a road car. Only 499 units were produced, and each cost more than 1 million US dollars since its release back in 2013. My replica had to be as authentic as possible to the real masterpiece when it comes to both functionality and aesthetics. Therefore I chose for the classis manual chassis rather than a remote controlled version instead. Off coarse I used Sariel’s model scaler to get all proportions right Specifications: -Length: 53 Studs (42 cm); Width 21 Studs (17 cm); height: 12.5 Studs (9.5 cm) -Weight: 1100 g -Parts count: 1566 pcs Features: -RWD -Front and rear independent suspension -Working fake mini V12 engine (by crowkillers) -Steering with HOG control and positive Caster angle -Working diffuser flaps which deploy when steered (Brunojj1’s idea) -Modular bodywork (easily detachable to reveal chassis) -Openable butterfly doors with HOG control -Openable engine bay with knee joint mechanism Considering it’s scale, the parameters I wanted to include were not easy to achieve at all, resulting in many headaches throughout the design process. The doors are a perfect example: their opening movement had as realistic as possible whilst not interfering with any of the other bodywork or front wheels, as they are part of the fender. When fully opened, the doors also needed to lock into place and they had to be operated using HOGs. The engine bay was a nightmare to design too. Very complicated curves had to be replicated with limited space for connectors to put the panels at the right angles. It Interfering with the chassis was a big bottleneck as well. I am quite satisfied with the result of my dream hypercar replication, therefore I took the opportunity to make high quality renders building instructions using Building instructions and parts list are available here: More pictures at my bricksafe: Constructive critics, feedback and questions are as always appreciated! Enjoy your day
  3. My next alternate model of 42125: Ferrari Enzo Features: - Opening doors, bonnet, trunk - Independent suspension - Fake engine - Working steering wheel Video: There's much influence of the 8653 set, which is my favorite one. So it's a kind of modern representation I made Rebrickable page:
  4. Here's my replication of the Ferrari Daytona SP3 made with the 42125 parts. Not perfect shaping, but the best panel configuration, to my mind. Coming with the free instruction Features: - Opening doors, bonnet, trunk- Independent suspension- Fake engine- Working steering wheel Video (including instruction): More images: Rebrickable page:
  5. The car definitely needs a topic like this to look more like the real thing and make it better overall. Here are some ideas: lower the car, fill all holes in the chassis and the bodywork, flip the small panels on top of the the doors around, get rid of all visible blue pins and coloured axles, different wheels, improve the interior by filling all gaps, make the side skirts out of some technic beams like on the 42096 instead of these stupid rotor blades, different steering wheel, ......

    [MOC] Ferrari F40

    Hello Ferrari and Speed Champions fans, the Ferrari F40 (tipo F120) is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive sports car engineered by Nicola Materazzi with styling by Pininfarina. It was built from 1987 to 1992, with the LM and GTE race car versions continuing production until 1994 and 1996 respectively. As the successor to the 288 GTO (also engineered by Materazzi), it was designed to celebrate Ferrari's 40th anniversary and was the last Ferrari automobile personally approved by Enzo Ferrari. At the time it was Ferrari's fastest, most powerful, and most expensive car for sale. Building instructions are available on the following links: It is a studless build in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a sleek model which is as accurate as possible in this small scale. I prefer the brick built solutions to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, and therefore only Ferrari logo stickers are used. (If you preferred a better shaping instead of a real rear side grill, then 2pcs of parts 61409 could replaced by 2pcs of tiles and some additional stickers, see the picture 3.) My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. The model contains lots of details: for example the emblematic front, hood , side and rear intakes, the narrow black line on the front and sides, the front turn signals, the side view mirrors etc... Maybe the most challenging one was the iconic rear side with the vehicle registration plate and the rear spoiler, here there is a half stud offset. I tried to fill every unnecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for one minifigure. I suggest to use small or middle sized hair.

    [MOC] The Red Italian

    Hi! Maybe you expect a Ferrari... Well, close enough My entry for the Festival of Mundanity, hosted by BrickNerd and The Lego Car Blog. Fiat Multipla is probably one of the most atrocious cars ever made, It is ugly and mundane at the same time. I made it in 7wide'ish and actually had fun building it. Hope you don´t like it!

  8. I’m not a “car guy” by any stretch of the imagination. I couldn’t even tell you what type of engine my own car has. However, I like cool-looking sports cars as much as anyone and bought a fair amount of LEGO Racers sets back in the day. And while I haven’t bought any sets from Racers’ spiritual successor, Speed Champions, I’ve had my eye on some of the sets for a while. Each wave seems to be getting better and better, and this latest batch of sets looks especially good, so I was excited to get the opportunity to review the entire wave! So, fasten your seatbelts and join me as I do a full inspection of these race cars, starting with… Set Number: 76906 Name: 1970 Ferrari 512 M Theme: Speed Champions Year of Release: 2022 Ages: 8+ Pieces: 291 Price: $19.99 / 19.99€ Online Shop description: The Box TLG is kicking off the March 2022 wave with a classic from 1970, the Ferrari 512, and not just any version of it, but the modified one (hence the “M”) driven by Jacky Ickx when he won the Kyalami 9 hours race. The box features the same design as the Speed Champions boxes from the previous two years with the theme’s logo on a checkered flag in the upper left corner and the car manufacturer’s logo in the upper right. I’m glad they switched back to this type of background from that boring gray stripe they were using from 2018 to 2019. The flag fades nicely into the background of the box art which shows the 512 racing ahead of two other cars on a racetrack. What’s odd is that it seems to be nighttime in this scene. I don’t know during which 9 hours the Kyalami race took place, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t at night. Correct me if I’m wrong in the comments. However, they correct this potential inaccuracy on the back of the box where it shows the classic racecar driving down the track during daylight, showing off the rear of the vehicle. It also shows a close up of the cabin and a reference picture of the real car along with another Ferrari logo. The top of the box features a three-quarter view of the car, some copyright info, and one of the shiny golden wheels for scale reference, while the bottom has the usual choking hazard warnings and other info. The same image of the set is shown on one of the sides of the box along with a holographic sticker of authenticity from Ferrari. The other side only has an ad for the Lego Life app. Contents Inside the box there are two numbered bags, a sticker sheet, and one instruction booklet. Instructions This year, Lego is making the instructions for Speed Champions sets available in the Lego Instructions app. They’ve had these interactive instructions for a while now for Lego City, but I guess they have debugged it enough now that they feel comfortable branching out into other themes. And they want you to know about it. Not only does every set list this as one of the features of the set, but they also have a full two-page ad for the app at the beginning of the booklet which shows the different options for instructions using a City ice cream truck as an example. Unfortunately, the instructions for these sets have not been added to the app yet as of this writing, so I can’t test them out for you, but if they are like all the other 3D instruction in the app, they will be a nice alternative to the physical instructions, especially for visually impaired people, as they allow you to zoom in rotate around the model, although the rotating doesn’t always work the way you want. Oh well, I prefer physical instructions anyway. The instructions are easy to read, and like all 2022 sets (AFAIK) feature a progress bar that runs along the bottom and shows you how far along you are in the build. Unlike in the City sets, the progress marker is not a minifig from the set, but a generic dot. However, they still managed to give the bar a unique flavor by making it gray to match the Speed Champions branding. There is an explosion of stars at the end of the instructions for the minifig and the car. Notable Parts There are only a handful of notable parts in this set, but they are good ones. There are three types of parts that are printed in this set: the windshield, a 1x2 tile in trans-black that has the top covered In red, and the 1x1 plate with a tiny Ferrari logo on the side which has shown up in a few other Ferrari sets before. There are six of these plates in the set, even though only two of them are visible in the finished model, so you could switch out the other four with unprinted ones from your collection and use them in your MOCs. This set also comes with the highly anticipated 1x5 plate that debuted last year and shows up in red for the first time here, along with the preexisting black version! The 1x2 plate with vertical clip also comes in red for the first time, and the new 1x2 inverted arch only appears for the second time in red after debuting in the Fender Stratocaster. This set comes with the old style of wheels with the newer dotted brake rotor lines which comes in pearl gold for the first time (although its predecessor with the solid lines did appear in 3 sets in that color). Minifigs This set comes with one minifig to drive this historic vehicle and you’d think that it would be a Lego version of Jacky Ickx considering that this is his car, but if you think that, you will be disappointed. Sadly, Speed Champions sets always come with super-generic drivers which is one of the reasons why I miss Lego Racers. As awkward as their faces may have looked, it was great to get minifigs of real racecar drivers like Michael Schumacher with their respective cars back in the day. So, instead of Jacky, we get this guy with tousled brown hair and a generic smirking face. It doesn’t even come with a wrench accessory like some Speed Champions drivers do. Not only is the face boring, but also misprinted in this copy of the set. The white dots in the eyes are too high, making it look like the minifig is wearing white eye liner. No judgement if the fig likes it that way, but I don’t think it’s intentional. Fortunately, it comes with a great, brand-new Ferrari racing suit that does match Jacky’s to make up for the disappointing head a bit. It’s nicely detailed with a Ferrari logo, zippers, and lines that continue down to the legs and onto the fig’s back. The Build Since I had never built a Speed Champions set before and the only cars I have built in recent years are the crappy ones that are included as an afterthought in Super Heroes sets, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by some of the building techniques. It’s interesting how they attached the hinges for the wedge plates behind the cabin and more the headlights and some of the side parts are attached by sticking them onto little bars. The unique shape of the mudguards on the rear wheels is achieved by building sections with the 1x2 inverted arches and clipping them onto the side of the car upside down in order to un-invert them. It would have been nice if they had just made a non-inverted version of this piece, but it’s a clever workaround that works pretty well. Spare Parts There are only a few little bits left over after the build including one of the printed 1x1 Ferrari plates. There is actually one more round tile in trans-orange which isn’t pictured here as it was camera-shy and rolled away before I took the picture. The Complete Set Here is the finished car in all it’s boxy-yet-aerodynamic glory! Aside from the six studs on the wedge plates behind the cabin, there are no exposed studs on the model, making it look nice and smooth. The color scheme and shape of it remind me of the A-Wing. I wonder if Ralph McQuarrie was inspired by this car for the design of that ship? Compared to the real thing, it looks pretty spot-on. The Lego version is only missing the rearview mirror (?) on top and some decals, especially around the back, but I’m not gonna complain about not having to apply more stickers. I like that the headlights are brick-built on this model rather than stickered or printed on like on most Speed Champions cars, although the use of trans-black parts makes them look too dark in my opinion. I think trans-clear would have looked better. It’s interesting how they designed the headlights so that they go all the way to the edge of the car by capping them off on the sides with the translucent tiles with the red printing on top. Unfortunately, as is always the case when they try to print on dark parts, the red color on the print appears darker than that of the red parts around it, and there is a visible dark outline around the print, making the tiles look out of place. It’s a clever idea, but it doesn’t work very well. Otherwise, the nose of the car looks great as they recreated the wedge shape of it excellently by building the entire nose section at an angle. In fact, the entire profile view of the car looks great. Spoiler alert! The two little spoilers at the back of the car which on the real vehicle are only attached at the corners are held on by trans-clear round plates with handle which is a clever solution. What I don’t like, however, is that the back of the driver’s cabin is almost completely open. I’m not sure how they could have fixed this, but it’s not ideal. I like how they executed the air channels on the sides of the car that go down toward the rear wheels, under the hull, and out towards the spoilers. The windshield can be lifted up towards the front, so you can seat the driver inside without having to completely take it off like you do on most Speed Champions cars. This is not how it works on the real 512, but it’s a neat play feature all the same. The interior features a stickered double cheese slope with gauges which adds a welcome bit of detail. We have actually gotten this type of racecar before. Set 75876 included the Ferrari 512’s main competitor, the Porsche 917. Even though the Porsche set came out back when the Speed Champions cars were 6 studs wide and looks much inferior to this set, I think the Ferrari would look good next to the 917K. (Picture courtesy of Brickset) Ratings Design: 8/10 A slick looking vehicle that looks very accurate with only minor design flaws. Build: 8/10 An enjoyable build with several unusual SNOT techniques and not too many stickers. Playability: 6/10 The car is fun to zoom around and the windshield can be lifted up. Figures: 7/10 An exclusive, detailed body is bogged down by an inaccurate, generic, and misprinted head. Parts: 7/10 A few new recolors of fairly new molds and some printed parts. Not too bad! Price: 10/10 At 291 pieces for just 20 bucks, this is easily one of the best values for a Speed Champions set! Overall: 8/10 The March 2022 wave starts out strong with this accurate recreation of a classic LeMans racecar. It’s relatively challenging to build, fun to play with, and it looks good on display. The only things that detract from it are the generic minifig head and some printing quality issues. At such a good value, I can definitely recommend it. Thanks for reading and thanks to TLG for sending me this set for review. What do you think of the set? I’d be curious to hear from Speed Champions fans and car aficionados, so let me know in the comments and in the poll above. The set will release on March 1, 2022: In my next Speed Champions review, we will take a look at a type of car that has never been seen in LEGO before! Until then, may the downforce be with you.
  9. Ferrari F40The most iconic supercar from the edgy eighties. The last hardcore beast signed off on by Enzo. The absolutely definitive Ferrari. The legendFunctions- Working steering wheel- 5+R dogleg gearbox- Fake V8 working engine- Independent double wishbone suspension at all 4 wheels- Openable doors, front and rear clamshell- Manually operated pop-up headlights Design and InspirationThis creation is inspired by the fantastic work of @jorgeopesi from 7-8 years ago, reborn with contemporary Lego Technic pieces. I kept the gear shift mechanism of the original, and changed the gearbox to a modified version of @Rudivdk's 5+R manual transmission. Some exterior solutions also take reference from jorge's version, but everything else from steering, suspension setup to engine, body panels etc are my own designs. It's not a mod by any means, but hopefully a worthy remake. With the evolution of LEGO parts palette over the years, I have also managed to add more details to the model, such as: - cooling slots under the rear spoiler - exhaust manifold and a see-through rear grille - detailed interior and more representative racing bucket seats - detailed engine bay with all the bells and whistles (intercoolers, airboxes, etc) - as well as, the iconic line that runs across the entire car - also worth mentioning is the 3-piece rod hidden in the rear bumper that supports the rear clamshell when it's opened. Construction The car was originally built with parts from set 8145, 8070, and additional parts from my parts bin. However, 2x 42125 is also a great base, which provides 70% of the parts. The missing 30% is listed here. When making instructions, I have also tried to substitute expensive parts such as Red 14L soft axles, or Red 1x6 thin liftarms with more affordable solutions. The wheels used in the instruction are also from set 42125 to save cost, but if you want to use standard technic 56mm D wheels - part 15038, just need to use 7L liftarms instead of 6L as the rear wishbones. These wheels will stick out a bit and provide a slight rake, giving the car a more aggressive look. The wheels used in photos are third party/non-lego parts. They are great (provide a good offset between the front and rear wheel covers, making the rear wheels look "deeper") but perhaps not for the purists. You can send me a private message if you want to know where I get those wheels from, but note that I'm in no way affiliated with the seller. Neither can I guarantee the quality of the product nor seller's trustworthiness, so tread at your own risk. Instruction hereThe instructions booklet is 666-page long and contains 828 steps (talk about "Manifest" if you watch that show :D). You will find 11 modules and 10 assembly stages in between to combine the modules to form the final model. You can follow the instructions in the chronological order of the pages, or skip around, build all the modules first (in whichever order you like) and then follow the assembly steps, just like how real cars are built in the factory. Either way should bring you a enjoyable building experience. Thank you for reading this far. I hope you enjoy the write-up. Look forward to hearing your thoughts More pics here (bricksafe) Sneak peeks of my upcoming creations
  10. TLDR: super-detailed fully-modular Creator-scale build of epic early-90s Ferrari race-car version of street car version of a race car. The F40 LM is the race car version of what was already mostly a race car. Nineteen competition-ready F40's were built by Chinetti Michelotto for Ferrari; lighter, lower, more powerful and full of racing-specific tweaks. My 10248 "Super-Mod" builds one of these legendary LMs inside the lines of TLG's design. The kit's brilliant overall shaping and clever build solutions provide a framework for revised proportions and deeper detailing. Nearly every step of the build is altered and most assemblies have been heavily redesigned. The LM-spec bodywork has an extended front splitter, fixed headlights, a top-vented front hood, taller rear wing and open mesh rear bodywork. The lengthened doors and repositioned fuel-tank pods were informed by Brickmonkey's modified build, while the gray interior firewall was removed entirely, allowing the seats to be extended back along with the stretched doors for a more properly-scaled cabin. The black trim line is now brick-built the full circumference of the car, and the chromed #56145 rims from Bricks4All have fully scratch-built BBS LM wheel inserts (see my F40 album on Flickr for some in-progress photos). My original goal of just lowering the 10248 model's ride height rapidly evolved into in a fully revamped chassis, keeping only a portion of the central floor and the clever side sills from TLG's model. The race-spec front section carries an oversize radiator, air jacks, sway bars, repositioned hydraulic reservoirs and low-mounted battery suspended on Technic beams. The redesigned rear chassis lifts the axle position and provides mounts for the sway bar and air jack details as well as vestigial rear springs and oil coolers. The engine and transmission assembly was also lengthened and lowered and features details for turbos, wastegates, exhausts, a larger intake manifold and intercoolers. Also tucked in there are the cam-drive ancillaries, oil filter, and transmission-oil line. I followed the spec of a particular F40 LM which underwent a comprehensive resto-mod; much larger intercoolers, dual wastegates and many other updates went into the build. It's all well documented here: Custom stickers were created for the Braille battery, Magneti Marelli digital dashboard, and labels on the master cylinder fluid reservoirs. This project was a first for me at this scale (well, since I was a kid anyway) and a blast to do. It went way, way deeper than I had intended; motivation and inspiration for what was possible came from the large-scale masterworks of Luca Rusconi, Carl Greatrix, Norton74, and Robert Alexander (also Biczzz’s Alfa, Gerald Cacas, Sir.Manperson, Alex Paschoaletto). Hope you enjoy checking it out. Original base model: 1157 pcs. As built, appx: 1270 pcs. Parts changed or added: 490 pcs (39%) (*ps, missing a good clean "finished" front 3/4 shot, have to set up another shoot and add it back here)

Here's my latest creation: Ferrari F40 Model Info: Scale: 1:10 Size: L45, W21, H12, cm Weight: 1476g Parts: 1589 Features: - Remote control - Working V8 engine - Independent suspension - Opening doors, bonnet, trunk - Pop-up headlights - Modular construction - PF: 2L, Servo, IR, LiPo Video: Pictures: More images: Building instruction made in Bricklink Studio coming with 564 steps on 442 pages:
  12. Hi! It's time to upgrade one more shelf model (the previous one was the Batmobile Ferrari 42125 has a lot of free space, so I've inserted four buggy-motors and a few BuWizz receivers. The chassis is very simple, I've removed suspension, V8, driver seat and steering wheel :) And the bodywork is the same as in the original LEGO set. Here is the result: Thanks for watching :)
  13. Hello Magnum, Ferrari and Speed Champions fans, this targa topped 1984 Ferrari 308GTSi Quattrovalvole (pictures 1 and 6) was made famous by the television series Magnum, p.i. in which the series' lead, Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck) drove the car around Oahu for eight seasons while on his investigations, from 1980 to 1988. Several 308 GTS cars were used, a new one for each season, most being auctioned off after filming and all with the license plate ROBIN 1. The berlinetta version of this model is called Ferrari 308GTB Quattrovalvole (pictures 2-5 and 7-8). The design inspiration of this model came from a Ferrari 308 Matchbox which I received as a child. Building instructions are available on the following links: or They are a studless builds in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a sleek models which are as accurate as possible in this small scale. Only two stickers are used per model: the rectangular Ferrari logo, and the vehicle registration plate, to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds. My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. The models contain lots of details: for example the emblematic air vents on the hood (black on GTS and red on GTB), the front bumper with the turn signal lights, the tilted front grill, the rear three quarter window with black cover, the turn signal lights on the front side, the black stripe on the sides, the side-view mirrors, the tiltable seats etc.. Maybe the most challenging one was the iconic rear side with the vehicle registration plate, here there is a half stud offset. I tried to fill every unecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for two minifigures. I suggest to use small hairs. Without the seats and the two interior tan tiles minifigures with bigger hairs can be used too if they are leaned back.

  14. Hey everybody, I have finally managed to achieve the final version of my 1:10 F40. Here are some pictures to begin. For this model, I mainly focused on the design. You can find all the important elements and shapes of the F40 as The pop up headlights, the red seats, the Ferrari logos, the rear wing or the four rear red and orange headlights. For the proportions, my MOC is not 100% accurate, I prefered to take some minor liberties to have a better look in Lego. The best example is the air intakes on the sides of the car. The biggest should be more on the back but it would have result in a way more complex build and would have break the fluid lines of the car. Now let's talk about the functions : The first one is the opening of the doors an the engine cover. With this, you can see the detailing of the fake V8 engine, it was very important to me because it is a major part of the F40. I managed to reproduce the main shape of this beautiful engine. I took only one liberty with the cooling fan, I added this cause it was a real plus to the movement of the engine To make this engine work I had to get a gearbox. It is a 6 speed manual from Dgustaffson13. I put you the link to the video : Then we have the steering, operated by the steering wheel or by a removable HOG on the front. The pop up headlights follow the same system as my modernized 8880 but with a different shape of headlight. The last function is the suspensions. It is all independent and strong enough to maintain the whole car. To finish, let's look at the modularity and the details of the build it self. The whole build can be easily taken apart. First we take of the seats, the doors, the sides panels and the rear engine cover. Then we get the front hood, the engine, the rear axle and the rear bumper. We can have a better look on the front axle the gearbox and the engine. That's it for my F40, thank you for reading me and let me finish with a last picture of the car. .

  17. Hi everybody, new guy here! I'll admit, I've been reading and following Eurobricks for years, more years than I can count fingers on my hand. I officially signed up a couple months back, but have yet to post anything until now. I wanted to have something interesting to show you guys before I did, and now I do (hopefully). Allow me to present my custom LEGO Speed Champions MOC's! First of all, I love the Speed Champions sets. As a car guy and a LEGO fan, these are the best of both worlds. That being said, the designs leave a lot to be desired, which is also part of why I love them so much. I see an opportunity to exercise some creativity and do some hands-on building to make them as accurate to their real counterparts as possible. It starts with widening these models to 8-studs. That makes them too large for City-scale, but improves the look dramatically. Plus, with the added dimensions, you can put more detail into the models and get the proportions of auxiliary features (such as lights, exhaust, grille, etc.) correct. Truth be told, many of these had been in the works for almost a year, the first wave, that is. Most of the second wave is still in the works, though the Mustang and Corvette you see above are almost done. I've been constantly tweaking, retweaking, and fine-tuning my designs and I feel like I'm never fully satisfied with any of them. Some of the cars you see above haven't been fully completed. Some of the other Speed Champions are not shown in the photo because they're still half-built. In time, I will eventually show all of them. Today, I'll be showing one that has been completed to my liking: the Porsche 918 Spyder. With these models, I stick to a few rules that I set for myself: One, use as few of the stickers as possible. Stickers can only give so much depth; therefore, brick-built designs will look more authentic. Two, no custom parts or custom stickers. In the occasion that I do use stickers, I only use what's given on the sticker sheet. Three, no illegal building techniques. I want these to resemble a model that LEGO themselves would put out as a set. The common opinion is that the Porsche 918 is the dullest of the first wave of Speed Champions. I quite enjoyed tooling with this one, and it was actually easier than expected. I ditched the stickers for the front and rear intakes. I used stickers for the badges, fuel caps, and headlights. Technically, I could've gone with trans-clear cheese slopes for the headlights, but it didn't look quite right to me. I'm not a fan of the Speed Champions window/cockpit pieces for doing 8-wide builds. This is a Spyder, so it wasn't too hard to come up with a brick-built substitute. Without the window pieces, I'm now able to fit two minifigures side-by-side. It works because the construction of the sides is relatively simple and not very bulky. Being a convertible also helps too. I went with the brown leather plastic interior because I think it looks very classy. I try to recreate the interiors as accurately as possible. Side mirrors are an extra touch for added realism. This model also features a removable front trunk (frunk?) that can fit a couple of the suitcase pieces. You can see it in the short little video I have below! So, that's it for my first post! Let me know what you guys think! I'm always open to constructive criticism and if you have any alternate building techniques in mind, I'd love to hear about them! Also, please let me know if I'm doing something wrong with regards to posting and/or forum conduct. I'm still learning!

    [MOC] Ferrari Testarossa

    Hello Ferrari and Speed Champions fans, Ferrari Testarossa is a legendary supercar of 1980s. It is a two-door coupé from 1986 and it is the red version of the car from the TV series Miami Vice as the used Lego windscreen is not available with white decoration. Almost 10,000 Testarossas, 512 TRs, and F512 Ms were produced, making it one of the most-produced Ferrari models, despite its high price and exotic design. Building instructions are available on the following links: UPDATE: Oct, 2021 - This MOC is available as kit too :) : It is a studless build in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a sleek model which is as accurate as possible in this small scale. I minimized the use of stickers to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds. (Third picture shows the model without any stickers.) My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. The model contains lots of details: for example the emblematic side intakes with the bottom black stripe, the turn signal lights on the sides, the side-view mirrors, the front grill with the head lights, the iconic rear side with the vehicle registration plate. Maybe the most challenging one was the interior where the seat assemblies hold side panels too. I tried to fill every unecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for two minifigures. I suggest to use small hairs. Without the seats minifigures with bigger hairs can be used too if they are leaned back.

  19. Hello everyone. I would like to share a MOC I have just completed: Ferrari F2004 F1 car It’s in 1:8 scale with 1700+ parts. Some features: working V10, pushrod suspensions, steering wheel, removable front wing, rear wing, headrest, and engine cover I have uploaded some pictures to bricksafe: F2004 Bricksafe Instruction is also available here: F2004 Instruction
  20. Hello everyone! Today I'd like to show you the model that I've been working on for more than two years, it's my first MOC in this scale that is actually close to being finished. It was rebuild from scratch dozen times and still requires bodywork. The MOC is LaFerrari in 1:8 scale: Origially I had a lot of ideas and great ambitions, but over time I realized that I just don't have enough skill to make everything I wanted. So current version has following features: independent suspension; 2 L motors for driving; Servo motor for steering; working steering wheel; 8 speed sequential gearbox driven by M motor; spacious interior with low seats positioning; powering with standard LEGO PF. Proportions: width - 29 studs; height - 15-16 studs; length - about 70 studs, don't know yet. Originally I wanted to use bigger wheels but then I stopped on 68.8. The thing is that front section of the car are too low so there won't be any place for arches with bigger wheels. Battery box is located in front of the car because everything behind seats is one huge gearbox. It just lays on its own weight and will be covered on the top with something black. This way you won't see most of gray and light gray parts through the bonnet. Distance between seats is only 3 studs and every seat is 7 studs wide. There's no free space between them - only a few hidden cables there. This is how it looks without seats: Top and bottom views: The whole core of the car is basically done. It's pretty sturdy and doesn't bend when you hold it. In current state it has about 1600 pieces. The most challenging part of the build at this point is a gearbox. It had to be very compact because car is so low. In this LDD file you can investigate all gears: speed gearbox.lxf Here are some renders of gearbox without stepper. Green axles are input from motors. There are 3 clutches here and they give 8 unique combinations of their engagement. L motors are slowed down significantly. This is because they are not powerful enough to make this car fast. Here's a stepper mechanism that I used to move all 3 clutches: Green things should be connected with white rubber bands, they hold axles in fixed 90-degrees positions. There's a strong resemblance with 42056 Porshe's gearbox here, I know it. That model helped a lot with the inspiration. My plan is to finish bodywork but it's the hardest thing for me. This is the exact reason why I'm creating this topic - to get help/critique while I'm finishing the model. LaFerrari has quite complex shape and I should have chosen something more simple for my first MOC. But I already spent way too much time so I have to finally finish it. Leave your thoughts here, I'm very curious of what you might say. Thank you!
  21. This is my alternate model for the 42125 Ferrari 488 set - Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Scale: 1:10 Parts: 1181 Size: 45L, 20W, 12H, cm Weight 988g - Independent suspension - Working steering wheel - Fake engine - Opening doors with limiters - Opening front part of the bonnet You can find the building instruction on Rebrickable:
  22. Since the 42125 Ferrari set has blades... The features are: - Rotating propellers - Collective pitch control - Folding blades Video: More photos: Rebrickable page:
  23. Travel back 90 years in the past and rebuild your LEGO Technic 42125 Ferrari 488 GTE into this replica of 1931 Hot Rod FORD Model A. All required parts comes in the set 42125 and no additional or spare sparts are needed. If you own the Ferrari 488 GTE, you can completely build this alternate Hot Rod with no restriction. This model uses 1329 parts of the set, which are 79.3% of the parts of the Ferrari 488 GTE. Follow this link to show all pictures, renderings, 360° animation and the story about the design process of this MOC. You can find this model with instructions here on rebrickable. Features & Functions independent suspension in front and back steering with knob (in the back) engine with 8 cylinders, driven through diff by the real axle openable doors openable tailgate with lock to locate the trunk box to transport usefull things that fits inside the trunk overnight bag that fits inside the trunk lifting jack to lift up the car 41cm x 23cm x 15cm (with closed doors) Here are some impressions of the model: Box and overnight bag The model comes with a transporting box and an overnight bag. Both fits inside the trunk very vell. Lifting jack Luckily there are enough parts left over to build a cool lifting jack with locking function. You can lift up the entire car and it stays in position. Version Cabriolet The model and building instructions are designed to make a Cabrio as well. Therefore, the roof is detachable easily for a quick summer drive. Scale, Sticker & Stability The Hot Rod fits in scale, vintage style and playability with my Vintage Custom Pickup - alternate build of 42111. I have never tried this model with stickers, but of course it is buildable and could look more "racing-ish". I am excited to see the first user photo of this model with stickers applied. Some people report about problems with the stability of the Ferrari 488 GTE - be sure, this Hot Rod is designed to be solid as a rock. What makes this model special The wheels are mounted in opposite direction, which is not really common, but looks way better on this model. Unfortunately this way the rims does not fit the wheel hubs. As a reason, this model can not use the wheel hubs for mounting the wheels, but uses two of the rear hubs as the headlights. If you have already connected the two parts of the wheel hubs (the light bluish with the dark bluish one), be careful separating them. Because the model can not use the front wheel hubs, these hubs are custom brick built in a clever way and works perfect. The real car Of course this Hot Rod FORD Model A is based on the real car. Here are some pictures of the 1931 original model: Instruction You get a premium high quality PDF-instruction with 412 building steps on 259 pages with clear images. Yes, this is a 18+ set, but the instruction is easy to follow. You can get the instructions for 9.90 EUR on rebrickable. Here are some example pages of the instruction: Have fun with this model. I wish you happy building and promise an enjoyable building experience, as well cool playing and displaying. Thanks for the attention.
  24. Hello together, what is going on in this year´s supercar battle?? It seems to get quite intense and I really enjoy it to see so many posting outstanding MOCs here with a clearly visible improving standard requirements put on supercars. So let me give you some more: the LaFerrari. Not all people like Ferrari, some prefer non- PF supercars and some are tired of red supercars at all. But honestly - I don´t care ;-). Hopefully the Lambo fraction will like it anyway too;-). I think everyone knows the real car, if not – visit the homepage, so I don´t need to describe it. Its concept is different, innovative and unusual as my MOC was designed to be as well. The project started about 1 year ago. After the LaFerrari´s appearance at the Geneva Motor Show this mind blowing car was my next one to recreate. Not in 1 day of course. The goals for the final product were set high from the beginning. The main objectives were: - increase speed using 2 XL motors + 2 additional L motors, similar to the 2. engine in the real car - best possible functionality with full range PF equipment - “gapless” bodywork concept - a fair tribute to the real car by keeping a strict scale The resulting facts: – 1:10 scale; L62 x W30 x H15 studs (49 x 24,5 x 12 cm); 1-1,5 stud ground clearance – weight: 2,5 kg – parts amount: 2.000 + (including 52 Technic panels) – independent wheel suspension – RWD with 2 XL motors + 2 L motors – servo steering coupled to working steering wheel + working rear spoiler + rear diffusor winglets – remotely openable wing doors driven by 1 M motor – manual door selector (screenwiper) – self engeneered working 12 cylinder fake engine – flash lights mode - pole reverser coupled to engine – separate manual coupling for engine & pole reverser – manually openable rear hood – 6 pairs LED lights engaging by 2 different functions & circuits – control by 2 sets control units & IR V2 receivers – powered by 2 LiPo batteries with easy charge access The car is to 97% finished now and has some flaws, so another year left to finish it ;-). But this weekend I will try to make a YT video of it as it is to show the functions. There is also a small LDD file for the drivertrain available on my brickshelf account (folder not public today). I won´t make instructions for the car, maybe only complete the LDD for the chassis and the functions only. Enjoy! brunojj1
  25.
