    [MOC] KMP's Vehicle MOCS

    Decided to take inspiration from fellow builders and put all my past & future builds into one thread, so I wouldn't feel bad about having to create new threads everytime I had something new to upload. The first pictures are the builds that got me started back in 2017, and ones at the bottom are the more recent mocs that I've made. Jaguar XJR-12 Completed in January 2021 McLaren Senna Completed in January 2021 Lexus LFA Modification of an earlier version that I built back in 2019 Bentley Mulliner Bacalar Completed in February 2021 Koenigsegg Jesko Absolut Completed in February 2021
  2. I made a LEGO Speed Champions MOC of Dwight Schrute's 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am from the American version of The Office! The worn-out maroon muscle car is Dwight's iconic daily driver during all 9 seasons of the legendary TV sitcom, until the series finale where he is shown driving an orange Dodge Challenger SRT8 instead. The car has some features and various accessories to replicate moments from the show! Opening bonnet with detailed engine. Space for two minifigures. Pop-up headlights (non-fuctional, popped-down headlights must be removed and replaced). Briefcase and Schrute Farms beets that can be stored in the back seat or trunk (Back seats do not fit minifigures). Switchable roof assembly with emergency beacon from the car chase with Angela. Trash cans that Dwight rams into after him and Toby are caught spying Darryl. Orbit stroller with watermelon and rope from the episode "Baby Shower." Custom stickers from Brickstickershop are also available, which feature the Trans Am's "screaming chicken," vents, sun damage and scratches, plus the stick figure and baby that Dwight applies on his back window when he believes Angela and Senator Lipton's newborn child is his son! Instructions are available for purchase on my Rebrickable page. Stickers are available for purchase on Brickstickershop.
  3. Hello Lotus, James Bond and Speed Champions fans, The Lotus Esprit S1 is a sports car built by Lotus Cars from 1976 to 1978 at their Hethel, England factory. It has a rear mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive layout and it was featured in the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me, where a car famously converted into a submarine after a road chase. The car used in the underwater scenes is nick-named "Wet Nellie". Building instructions are available on the following link: It is a studless build in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a clean 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 two vehicle registration plate stickers are used. 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 black stripes on the sides, door handles, detailed tail lights etc.. Maybe the most challenging one was the front and the front bumper with brick built headlights. I tried to fill every unnecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The car can be converted to submarine. The model has space for two minifigures with helmets or small hairs.

  4. Hi, guys! I know that, there is February yet and we're before March release, but let's start new topic! So, at first I want to say that 2023 wave is amazing. New brand, new mudguards, new windscreens! Whoah! And there are my speculation/cars I want to see in Speed Champions 2024: ~ Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport 25 ~ Porsche Taycan ~ Audi e-tron GT ~ BMW M6 ~ BMW M4 GT3 & BMW M3 1991 ~ Ferrari 499p LMH ~ Ford Focus RS 2021 ~ Honda Civic Type R ~ Cadillac LMDH What do you think about my cars? What cars would you like to see? Show your speculation/wishlist.
  5. Here is my review on LEGO Speed Champions 76919 2023 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car: THE GOOD: Interesting building experience through out. Some surprising printed element. (Love the printed steering) Cool minifigure with McLaren helmet. THE NOT SO GOOD: Due to the design of the side body of the car, it can be a bit flimsy during the build but all good after everything is done. This is a pleasant surprise, and I absolutely loving it once built. First it's a nice looking F1 and the building experience has been interesting. Especially the techniques to create the body of this car. Both sides of the body and the engine area are some of the most interesting build I've seen in set this size. It does mean during the build, some parts did feel a bit flimsy while building it but it ends up all good and secure once completed. The use of spoon as side mirrors also very interesting. There are quite a bit of stickers but I love all the branding and only the DeWalt logo on the side was a bit difficult to apply. Having said that there are some very nice surprise in terms of printed element, and the google chrome logo wheel cover are great. And to finish thing off, it also includes a minifigure with a nice outfit and helmet with McLaren logo printed on it. This is a really good set and totally recommended. Price wise is great to considering lots of places having discount on this and I managed to buy this with 20% off =)

    Speed Champions: Speed Racer Mach 5

    Not really a car guy, but my kids got into the Speed Racer: Next Generation show. The song got stuck in my head. I'd always respected the Speed Champions line, so I thought I'd update the old Speed Racer. The actual car I built doesn't have a black windshield and the wheels obviously don't turn like that. But I like the poster style. Here's a build render: I love that you can actually get official stickers. What do you guys think?

    [MOC] Honda Civic Si EM1

    My new 8 stud wide Speed Champions model! This time i made a Civic EM1! FEATURES 2 minifigures fit inside Functional Hood Detailed Engine Video review of the model:
  8. Hello all. I'm working on a car in Studio and the part number for the Porsche 963 windscreen is not in the Studio database. Has anyone successfully created on that would share the part? I downloaded Part Designer but I haven't been able to find much information on how to use it or create parts. Is there a good forum somewhere that deals with the software? Here are some pics of the Miller Motorsports Porsche 963 I'm working on. I need the windscreen to adjust the front bodywork and check my sidepod and cockpit redo. Thank you.

    [MOC] 1959 Cadillac Series 62

    The absolute pinnacle of 1950s car design - The 1959 Cadillac The 1959 Cadillac Series 62 is an iconic symbol of automotive luxury and elegance from the golden age of American car design. Released during an era of excess and flamboyance, the '59 Cadillac embodied the spirit of the 1950s with its massive size, extravagant tailfins, and elaborate chrome accents. The Series 62 was a part of Cadillac's lineup, which was known for its opulence and cutting-edge features. The '59 model was no exception. From the moment it hit the streets, the Cadillac Series 62 turned heads with its bold and distinctive styling. The rear tailfins soared to impressive heights, resembling rockets ready for takeoff. They were and still are the biggest tail fins ever put on a production car and mark the absolute peak of the tailfin era. The grille featured a bold, intricate design, and the abundance of chrome trim added to its undeniable presence. Fun fact: When the general public thinks of a pink Cadillac, minds instantly flock to a 1959 model with gorgeous tailfins and sweeping lines. But, the fact of the matter is Cadillac never made a pink 1959 Cadillac. All pink 1959 Cadillacs have been repainted at some point. Under the hood, the '59 Series 62 was powered by a 390 cui V8 engine putting out about 325 hp, providing power for effortless cruising on the open road. The Tri-power equipped Eldorado reached up to 345 hp. It offered a smooth and comfortable ride, with Cadillac's renowned attention to detail evident in every aspect of the car's construction. Inside, the cabin boasted luxurious upholstery, spacious seating, and a host of advanced features for the time, including power windows, air conditioning, and a cutting-edge radio system. The 1959 Cadillac Series 62 quickly became a status symbol, attracting celebrities, dignitaries, and those seeking the epitome of american luxury. Its iconic design and lavish features made it a standout in an era that embraced excess and glamour. Today, the '59 Cadillac Series 62 continues to be a highly sought-after collector's car, cherished by automotive enthusiasts and vintage car aficionados worldwide. Its distinctive appearance and historical significance have solidified its place in automotive history, serving as a timeless reminder of an era when american cars ruled the road with their size, style, and unabashed extravagance. My model This model is not based of the LEGO Ideas Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set. I just think that the set doesn't really look good and decided to do my completely own 59 Cadillac. I had a lot of building this iconic 50s car. I'm really happy with the end result, I think the pink is the perfect color for the 59 Cadillac, even though it is not a original color. This car has an realtivitely detailed interior but does not really support minifigs. The model is 8.4 studs wide, 24.2 studs long and about 5 bricks high. This model is quite stable, so you can use this model as a display piece but you can also play with it. The instructions for this model are easy to follow and for free. If you want to modify this model, no problem, just download the 3D file and start building. If there are any problems with the instructions, please contact me. I spent a lot of time and effort in this model so I would be happy if you reply to this topic! I recently saw this one film with like ghost and all kinds of weird stuff… You probably never heard of it. Anyway they had like a 59 Cadillac Miller Meteor...thing. Do you think I should build it? Let me know in the comments! A NEW REALM OF MOTORING MAJESTY ! - ad for the 1959 Cadillac You can find instructions for this model on my Rebrickable page
  10. A little gift for Speed Champion owners: a custom part of a "known competitor brand" (I wonder why TLG does not make them) Display Case for Speed Champions series. Being an owner of a certain number of these sets, I had a "dust problem" and found an elegant solution by using them (not an advert of an undesired 'brand', I do not publish the vendor name) and they work amazingly. For those who may use them and would have their digital model for, I made it as a pair of custom parts: bottom-base and shell-case. Custom part: Studio model:

    [MOC] A-Team Corvette

    Hello Corvette, A-Team and Speed Champions fans, the Chevrolet Corvette C4, colloquially known as the 'Vette, is a two-door, two-passenger sports car manufactured and marketed by Chevrolet across more than 60 years of production and eight design generations. The fourth-generation was the first complete redesign of the Corvette since 1963 and it is known for its sleek look. It was produced from 1983 to 1996. This color scheme of this model is based Faceman's 1984 Corvette from "The A-Team" which is an American action-adventure television series that ran on NBC from January 1983 to March 1987 about former members of a fictitious United States Army Special Forces unit. 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 to minimize the use of stickers to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, and therefore this model include only two vehicle registration plate 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 color scheme with the red and black stripes on the sides, the glass hatchback, 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 unnecessary 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.

  12. Hello Lamborghini and Speed Champions fans, The Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 is a mid-engine sportscar produced by the Italian automotive manufacturer Lamborghini. In keeping with Lamborghini tradition, the Aventador is named after a Spanish fighting bull that fought in Zaragoza, Aragón, in 1993. The Aventador is the successor for the Murciélago and was made by hand in Sant'Agata Bolognese, Italy. 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 clean 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 two types of stickers are used: simple black ones to cover the visible parts of the headlights in the front air intakes, and the Lamborghini logo. 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 headlights, the front and side air intakes, the side view mirrors and rear details with the wide exhaust etc... Maybe the most challenging one was the hood tilt and some half stud offsets in the inside structure. I tried to fill every unnecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The two trans-clear headlight parts "Slope, Inverted 45 2 x 1" (part 3665) are very rare, it never released in a set, but is available on Bricklink in some webshops. Of course they can be replaced for example by white, black, light bluish gray or dark bluish gray versions. The parts 86996 and 42446 are also rare, but the picture 7 shows an alternate side view mirror solution. It is a very low build, and can roll well only on flat surfaces. It is more of a display model then a toy for small children. The model has space for two minifigures: one with small hair or helmet in the driver's seat and one either without hair or withour leg.

  13. I got a hankering to build a rally car because I like the aesthetic, but I'm not sure what features a typical rally car should have. Any suggestions? I saw a lot of rally cars that are actually smaller cars with wide body kits and larger tires, so maybe they should be 8-wide like typical Speed Champions cars? Or is 6-7 wide more appropriate? What tires would I use? What are the interiors like, mostly empty? What equipment is in there? Are they built differently depending on the racing environment? Hopefully I can bang out something cool this weekend.

    [MOC] 00s Police Interceptor (6-wide)

    6 studs wide Police Interceptor from the early 2000s as known from countless movie classics.Features: -Compatible with narrow new road plates -Fits 4 minifigures sitting side by side -Doors, engine hood, trunk open -Backbench separated by a divider wall -Spacious trunk that fits 2 helmets, 2 handcuffs & 2 batons -Rotatable searchlights -Police computer & shotgun After an almost decade-long hiatus, I got back into Lego in early 2022. Considering how much had changed in the meantime, I made it into my first major project to deliver something that to me appeared to be much wanted, yet not available: Minifigure-scale (or close) cars that fit minifigures side by side, are narrow enough for the new road plates and have full functionality (such as doors, engine hood, trunk). At the same time, I wanted them to be good-looking and stable enough to be handled easily. I'm very pleased at the results so far, please let me know what you think. Instructions are available on Rebrickable; they're quite detailed yet cheap (compared to the effort):
  16. Hello Chevy and Speed Champions fans, The 1957 Chevrolet is a car that was introduced by Chevrolet in September 1956 for the 1957 model year. It was available in three series models: the upscale Bel Air, the mid-range Two-Ten, and the One-Fifty. It is a popular and sought after classic car. Its image has been frequently used in toys, graphics, music, movies, and television. The '57 Chevy, as it is often known, is an auto icon. This model is based on one of my favorite Matchbox as a child. Building instructions are available on the following links: Kit is available here: It is a studless model in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. It can be built either with fixed doors, or with openable doors. I personally prefer the fixed door version (Speed Champions style) as it is more sturdy and there are no half plate thick gaps below the doors. I minimized the use of stickers to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, therefore only two standard vehicle registration plate stickers are used. My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. I wanted to build the model as accurate as possible in this small scale, therefore it contains lots of details: for example the brick built flame decoration, the emblematic front bumper with the vehicle registration plate and front lights, the side view mirrors and the rearview mirror, the tiltable seats etc.. Maybe the most challenging one was the brick built number on the trunk. I tried to fill every unecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for two minifigures on the front seats. There are some space before the rear seats too, but it is enough only for a minifigure without legs.

    Speed Champions Dyna-Stand [v2.0]

    At some point we all try to make stands for the Speed Champions sets, yeah? Here's my first attempt. Version 2.0 is here and kicks Version 1's chassis to the curb!! Features: Contact sections can rotate to accommodate vehicles of different wheelbases without having to disassemble anything. Ball-jointed base for maximum posing Beautiful, brutish design can be customized Added a spot to place a figure and plaque/decorations Uses inexpensive parts, hopefully? Suggestions welcome! --- Built!
  24. I've been making a number of Speed Champions-scaled cars lately and I didn't want to spam up the forum with a bunch of threads, so I decided to put 'em all here! They're posted in the approximate order that I built them (many were worked on at the same time). Original Builds: 1972 Datsun 240z The color scheme is based on the 1972 Ontario Motor Speedway pace car livery. I'm most happy with the angled cabin and the dual exhaust. 1970 Oldsmobile 442 W30 The peak performance year for the 442! The ram air scoops are simply represented by 1x4 tiles - an older version of this build had a much more complex build for this section, but it made the car too tall, and the overall silhouette and shaping was more important to me. I'm most happy about the radiator grill and the tail lights. v.1.1 update: lower profile mirrors now that the little light cover piece comes in yellow. v.2.0 update: I always wanted the hood intakes to be more sculpted and less flat, ideally with actual physical intakes so they don't just look like weird stripes. I went back and rebuilt a large amount of the car to achieve this! 1968 Oldsmobile 442 I built the '70 first, but my dad's old car was a '68 so I felt like making this one as well. I think it turned out better, even. I do intend to change the vent just in front of the windscreen to make it a little more subtle. My favorite parts of this build are the side stripes and the 1/2 plate-raised portion of the hood. v.1.1 update: more subtle vent in front of the windscreen. 1970 Chevrolet Camaro RS/Z28 Still my favorite car I've ever done. The seed piece for this build was the ice skate, which immediately jumped to mind when I saw the split bumper on the R/S version of the 2ng gen Camaro. 1969 AMC Super Stock AMX Kind of an odd car; a 2-seater steel body muscle car with a short wheelbase. Essentially, a shortened Javelin. I built this in order to use the 2 blue wheel arches that came with the Ferrari Ultimate Garage set. v.1.1 update: removed the sloped shoulders to make the build sleeker and more stable and consistent. 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo Yeah, not so much of a "speed" car. We bought a used one as a cheap second car a few months ago, so I was inspired to build it, so I'm throwing it in here anyway. This is easily the most complex, ridiculous build I've ever done. It has 265 pieces, 117 of which are attached sideways or upside-down. 1972 Datsun 240z A street car variant of the 240z I built before. Fender-mounted mirrors, simple non-sport wheels, single exit exhaust, no splitter, no spoiler, no livery. 1970 Plymouth Hemi Cuda This one took a really long time from concept to completion. I'm very happy with the color scheme and shaping, but I think it needs about an extra stud of length at the hood maybe? Will probably re-examine soon. v.2.0 update: the previous version of this was always my least favorite car that I had built. It felt too short, too stubby, too low to the ground. It was just overall too small, especially placed next to any other SC car, and a bit... chunky. This is a complete overhaul and rebuild. I kept the old cabin, headlight/grill, and taillight designs. I lengthened the rear deck (and entire car) by one stud and increased its ride height by one plate. I redesigned the sides to be sleeker and accentuate the rocker panels better. The front and rear lower fascias were rebuilt as well to be a little sleeker and to highlight the exhaust pipes. The interior also had to be completely redone to accommodate the method used to build the new sides. Though it may look very similar at a glance, I believe this only has about 50% of its pieces in common with the original design. I sure like it a lot more now! v.2.1 update: I still wasn't happy! I tweaked it a little more: I shortened the overall length again, but raised the cabin. I also swapped it over to the larger Speed Champions wheels, which are less realistic, but give it more of the caricature I'm after. It's now much closer in proportion to my '70 Challenger, as it should be, since the cars share a chassis. 1967 Pontiac GTO I had the idea for the taillights from a failed attempt at a Firebird and it all came together from that. All of the metal trim on this one is flat silver instead of light gray, which is neat. It also has a more-detailed-than-usual cabin, with a reclining seat, shifter, wheel, gauge, and a hood-mounted tachometer visible from inside. Overall, one of my favorites. 1970 Chevrolet C10 with tiny house The truck is a classic C10 short bed. I'm quite happy with the gap between the cabin and the bed. The tiny house is hinged and has a full interior: a small kitchen with a microwave and a sink, a bathroom with a toilet and shower, folding chairs and a table that store on the wall, and stairs (with built-in storage) that lead to a lofted bed. Outside, it has a porch with stairs, gas and battery power, and folding chocks to support it when detached (or opened). 1969 AMC Hurst/SC Rambler The livery was a ton of fun on this one. The arrow pointing to the scoop is the detail that made me want to attempt to build it in the first place. I also enjoyed the little details like the red, white, and blue headrest and the blue wheels. 1970 Mercury Cyclone Spoiler The geometry of the fascia is so fascinating on this car that I just had to try it. I really like the colors and form factor of this one. The taillights were interesting, too: friction-fitted with flexible rubber Technic elements. 1969 Ford Mustang Boss 429 (John Wick's car) I built this when I was getting hyped for John Wick 3 to come out. Finally had to try my hand at a Mustang. My favorite elements here are the raked cabin and the chin spoiler. 1967 Ford Mustang Fastback / Shelby GT500 (Eleanor from the 2000 remake of Gone in 60 Seconds) My father-in-law saw my John Wick Mustang and loved it because he thought it was Eleanor. I told him it's not, but I can certainly make that one, too! I'm very happy with the shaping on the hood, plus getting the fascia to look right with the extra fog lamps. 1969 Dodge Coronet Super Bee The official 1970 Charger was a really cool build, but I really wanted its tail stripe to be brick-built. My desire to build such a thing led to this model instead, a Super Bee in classic yellow/black livery. This was my first attempt at double side-by-side headlights, using the somewhat classic binoculars technique. I also tried angling the whole tail to give it a sloped rear deck, but it just looks... saggy. That needs revising, I think. I really love the taillights, though! v.1.1 update: removed the angled tail and swapped the fenders for the newer Speed Champions ones, because the old City ones are ridiculously rare and expensive. 1964 Ford Fairlane Thunderbolt This model took me longer to design, from start to finish, than anything else I've made. It took so long to figure out how I even wanted to attempt the bodywork, much less accomplish it. I'm really pleased with it, though! I really like the front fenders and the fascias. 1964 Ford Fairlane Gasser I have wanted to try a gasser for a while. This one was really fun! I removed the hood, the "chrome", and the bumpers. I added a solid bar rear bumper and a lifted solid front axle. The front received a moon tank, and the exhaust was routed through the fenders. I finished it off with even fatter drag tires on the rear, angle cut velocity stacks, and a show car color scheme. 1970 Chrysler 300 Hurst Edition I really wanted to try this one for the Hurst color scheme: white, dark tan, and gold. I went with a medium nougat interior, too. The big challenges here were the hood bulge shaping and the rear fender covers. I couldn't use the same technique from the Fairlane for the rear fenders because they have that gold trim on them, so I came up with a new method that involves bars nested into cheese slopes. 1969 Chevrolet Nova SS I am SO HAPPY with how this one came out! The big thing here is that the cabin and rear deck are vertically offset by 1/2 a plate in order to smooth out the profile, which required a custom chassis so it would still fit a minifig. I'm really happy with the shaping on the front fascia, but my favorite detail is actually the sloped rear edge of the hood bulge. v.1.1 update: it was pointed out to me that the front quarter panels were a little too angular, more closely evoking an El Camino or Chevelle than a Nova. Fair enough! Slight nose redesign. 1970 Dodge Challenger R/T I wanted to build a purple car for a long time, and somebody on Rebrickable showed me their recolor of the official SRT Demon in purple, so it inspired me to try a classic Challenger. I wanted to try something new for the headlights, since binoculars can be a bit clunky. My favorite detail is the use of light gray flag pieces to fill a gap between the taillights and the rear bumper. 1970 AMC Rebel "The Machine" Every time I build an AMC, I gotta do the optional American color scheme. The livery is super interesting on this one, and I love the combination hood scoop/external tachometer. My favorite detail is the R/W/B stripes in the front fascia. 1979 Ford Mustang This turned out to be a tricky one, especially since I really wanted to build a car in dark red, which introduced a lot of parts limitations. The internals of this thing are a lot of weird connections jammed into a very tight space, especially since it still has a full interior for a minifig. It's also not any specific model or trim package, because I wanted to build several iconic elements of the model year: the window louvers, hood scoop, black trim stripe, sun roof, and spoiler. 1981 Chevrolet El Camino An El Camino is probably the car I've gotten the most requests for ever, so here's an '81 - specifically, the one that appeared in the series finale of Breaking Bad, and of course the standalone El Camino. This was a bit of a collaborative build, as some of the best ideas (like building the hood stripes sideways) came from a friend on another forum. I had some fun making the minifig to match, too. "Death Proof" 1971 Chevrolet Nova Since I made a Nova a little bit ago (February, I think?), it made sense to build Stuntman Mike's unique Death Proof Nova as well. It's a very similar build, with a couple of things changed out of necessity in the color swap, but I also redesigned the front fascia. As much as I love how the front end was built on the original Nova model, someone on Rebrickable (correctly) pointed out that the aggressive angle looked more like a Chevelle than a Nova. This new build feels less clever, but is undoubtedly more accurate to the real car. The graphics on the hood are custom UV printed because I don't really like stickers. 1971 Chevrolet Chevelle This one was modeled after a car my dad's wife owned when she was young, a lime '71 Chevelle SS 350 coupe with a white top and stripes. This was a super fun build with some novel shaping, such as the gently sloped hood bits, the 1/5 stud recessed rear deck, and the bodywork under the rear bumper. Also, I was really happy to finally build an original design in lime green. I really like the citrus-toned high impact colors. v.1.1 update: This one was too long. The nose was simply too lengthy for such a small car. It, and the wheelbase, were reduced. I swapped it over to smaller tires and gave it sleeker, more caricatured B and C pillars as well. 1973 Buick Gran Sport I think this is my new favorite build. There were a lot of curves and angles to figure out and it was a very fun to design. I redesigned the rear of the cabin several times until I was satisfied with the pillars, but they're now the highlight of the model, I think. Almost every part of this build required some kind of weird trick to make it work the way I wanted. 1983 Toyota AE86 Sprinter Trueno I tried this one a few different ways before I landed on this design, including 5 and 7-wide, but I feel like the classic 6-wide ended up getting me the most streamlined, finished-looking result. I'm particularly happy with the rear side window geometry - that's a 1x2 - 2x4 bracket angled against the top of the lower 18 degree slope, perfectly filling the 1/2 plate gap between it and the adjacent, higher 18 degree slope and giving me a surface to attach the C pillar tiles to. Also has the requisite paper water cup inside. 1967 Ford Mustang (10265) I will confess, I am ridiculously excited to show this one to you guys. It's my most ambitious model so far. I really wanted to replicate the 10265 Creator Expert set, including the mechanism to raise the rear axle, and I did just that! I also made the various hot rod add-on bits as well. 2015 Jeep Renegade Another unique challenge, building a car like this in olive green! The idea for this one came from the realization that I could use a white Technic cross axle for the iconic X-shaped taillights. I'm not sure it's my BEST build ever, but given the limitations of scale and color, I'm very pleased with it! 1963 Chevrolet Nova SS Well, I didn't want the '64 Fairlane gasser to get lonely, so I built it something to race against. This is a drag racing Nova with a lot of modifications, and one killer feature: the front bodywork hinges open to access the engine bay! Despite this, I'm proud to say it's a very sturdy, strong model. 1977 Pontiac Trans Am I've actually been wanting to do this car for over a year now, I just never got around to finishing up a design. But here it is! Like some of my previous models, the roof of the cabin is raked back to give it clean lines, but that was much more difficult to achieve on this one. I'm most happy with the simplest elements here, such as the taillights and exhaust pipes. 1969 Dodge Daytona This has been one of my most requested builds, so I've finally built one. I re-built the nose several times, trying different techniques, before I settled on this: a subtle, angled hood, capped with a combination of 45 degree double slopes and curved wedges. The rear is pretty intricate and fragile, making this one very much a "display only" model. 1965 Ford Mustang Station Wagon These are so goofy, I couldn't help but want to build one! I chose a pretty classic Mustang color scheme that allowed me to use a lot of pearl gold, which is really striking in person. The interior is 2-tone medium nougat and dark orange, too. Sculpting the recessed sides / intakes was a really fun challenge. 1999 Mercury Cougar I mainly built this because it was my partner's very first car, but it was fun tackling a car shaped so differently than what I usually build. Plus, I finally got to do something in dark green! I'm especially pleased with how the headlights and taillights turned out on this one. 1985 Toyota Hilux 4 x 4 Marty's truck from Back To The Future! I started with the fenders and sculpted everything else out around those. This build uses 51 SNOT bricks and brackets, nearly 1/5 of all of its pieces. The wheels have independent suspension, though the large tires prevent much travel. 1969 Chevrolet Corvette C3 This was inspired by how much I disliked LEGO's official Speed Champions C3. In fact, I started working on it on the 2nd of May, immediately after images of the official build were revealed! I wanted to take my own shot at it in my preferred 6-wide scale. I focused largely on the aspects I thought came up short on the official one: the roof line, the windscreen, the curvature of the rear deck, and the shaping of the bodywork over the fender arches. I'll be honest, I'm completely thrilled with how this one turned out! I think it's one of my best and I almost made a new thread just to show this one off. Oh, also, the rear deck clip assembly that holds the luggage rack is easily reversible so the rack can be added or removed in seconds. 1940 GMC Pickup Truck This is pretty outside of my ordinary range, but a viewer on my LEGO Twitch stream requested it, so here we are! It was pretty fun to shape, and I've never prominently used bright light yellow before. I'm particularly happy with the headlights, which took a while to solve. 1977 Ford Falcon Sedan This is, surprisingly, the first sedan I've built, so I made sure it fits a passenger in the back seat, too. This uses a more refined version of the technique I found for the Challenger's headlights, and I'm pleased with how clean this build is. It's based on a friend's specific car, in case any diehard Falcon fans are wondering why it has a non-factory spoiler on it. 1970 AMC Gremlin I wanted to build this the moment I saw the new mudguards and color scheme on the van from the Avengers: Endgame Final Battle set. I'm pleased with how the angles came together on the rear, and "reddish brown" is yet another color I can tick off the list! 1990 Geo Tracker Designed for the Bricknerd / TLCB "Festival Of Mundanity." It's 4-wide, so scales about right with the 6-wide stuff. I'm quite pleased with this tiny thing and all its angles. 1956 Ford Thunderbird When the UK-exclusive Fiat 500 came out in bright light blue / light royal blue, I immediately knew I wanted to take advantage of all the new pieces in that color to build a SC-scale car. I chose the T-bird after I saw one in the wild. It's such a simple feature, but I'm very happy with the Technic bricks as porthole windows in the rear pillars. 2000 Plymouth Prowler I tried building this car before but considered it to be impractical in 6-wide. I was inspired to try again when the new-for-2022 2 x 3 curved slope wedges came out, which I used to shape the nose. I'm actually really happy with this one now! It still fits a minifig, but just barely. 1968 Dodge Dart Hemi Super Stock The new DB5 set brought us light bluish gray mudguard/fender pieces, at long last! I immediately knew what I wanted to build with mine: the legendary Hemi Dart, in its iconic factory primer/gelcoat color scheme. This one has some truly strange geometry and a nifty new C pillar design. My favorite detail is the paint rollers used for the short exhaust up front. 1969 "Ferrari" Dino 246 GT This is one of my favorite cars I have ever built and I am immensely proud of it. It's very stable and super small. It's shorter in height than a minifig, but still fits a driver inside! I replicated the yellow Dino logo in the center of the wheels and steering wheel, and emulated the super interesting rear window that curves into the insides of the C pillars. 1970 Plymouth Road Runner Drag Racer I originally designed this as a regular, factory stock Road Runner, but the hood was kind of plain and I had all that extra space, so I decided to hot rod this one with a giant exposed engine. I also gave it some aftermarket short exhaust and aero (spoiler and air dam). There are two really unique things on this build: the rubber bands, used for redline tires and spark plug wires, and the slightly angled rear deck, which I have attempted less successfully in the past. The stickers are all from set 42037. 1956 Oldsmobile Super 88 I had the mostly-finished design for this thing kicking around for about a year before I finally got around to completing the build. The whole thing started with the idea to use crutches for the grill, and it ended up being a more complex build with a 5-wide cabin because I also really wanted to try this idea for a brick-built windscreen. 2002 Pagani Zonda C12-S My first supercar, partially to prove (to myself) that I can do more than American classics, and partially because I wish LEGO had released the Zonda as a set instead of the Utopia! This is also, sadly, my first car that can't fit a minifig driver, but sacrifices had to be made to get this thing as low, sleek, and shapely as I could. I redesigned this one a couple times before I was satisfied. I'm especially pleased with the nose. 8-wide: I've also now done some 8-wide builds. I don't think I'll do many of these in the future, since I really do prefer how 6-wide scales to minifigures, City displays, and LUG layouts, but I can't deny it's fun having a little more room for detail. 1985 Lancia Delta S4 Rally I actually tried building this one in 6-wide first, but there wasn't enough space to shape the front fascia properly. I did take advantage of all this extra room to give it an immensely detailed interior, though, featuring a properly shaped dash, steering wheel with "logo", shifter, pedals, sculpted seats, and a fire extinguisher. 1972 Pontiac Grand Prix This was a commission for a coworker who wanted me to build his dad's old car, a metallic copper Grand Prix. If he wasn't bankrolling this project, it would not have gotten built in this color, because some of these dark orange parts are very rare and expensive! The cabin is gently raked to achieve the right roofline, which limits interior detailing a little, but it still has the usual features. I'm very pleased with the tail. Modifications: everything below is a modification of somebody else's design; in this case either LEGO or my favorite builder Jonathan Elliott. That is to say, I am not the creator of any of the following original designs, I have only tweaked and modified them. 1966 Ford GT40 From set 75881. I really love this car! 75881 is my favorite Speed Champions set so I didn't want to change much - I just wanted to lower it, because the original car is legendarily short (the "40" in GT40 refers to a height of 40 inches/102cm). The smaller City-scale wheels I used are extremely uncommon a quantity of only 1 was provided in just 1 Architecture set (but as of 2020, Pearl Gold is now available and much more common). Oh, and despite being dramatically lowered, it still fits a minifig! 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 From set 75888. Very minor mods here: I just enclosed the cabin in glass using 1 x 2 x 3 panels and added spokes to the wheels using the Technic 3L axle with a stud on the end. Enclosing the cabin this way was sort of a proof of concept that I later used on the Olds 442 builds above. 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400SV Original by Jonathan Elliott. I love the original model and wanted one of my own, so I reverse engineered it from breakdown photos he'd posted, and then started changing things to suit me better. My modified version fits a minifig and has a tan leather interior, flush rocker panels, new rocker panel intake scoops, chrome exhaust, and some slightly altered connections and structure. Again, all credit to Jonathan Elliott for the original design and for his blessing to show off my modified version. Ford Model A hot rod From set 75875. The original had a really ridiculous rake due to the giant rear tires and lowered rear axle. I leveled the axles, chopped/dropped the top, lowered the engine bay, and changed the exhaust to more of an open header design (though with only 2 pipes per side, maybe it's more like two open collectors). I retained the swappable engine feature, and added a third engine with velocity stacks. 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 From set 75874. The original is my least favorite Speed Champions set by far, so this build has some extensive revisions. Most importantly, I lowered the body, reduced (but retained) the rake, moved the cabin back, and gave it a rear windshield. 1970 Dodge Charger R/T From set 75893. I like this model a lot, but I don't love the tiny little rear window, so I made a new one with staggered cheese slopes. v.1.1 update: brick-built the red stripe on the tail, too. 1965 Ford Mustang / Hoonicorn V1 Original by LEGO as a gift to Ken Block, though this is based more on its prototype and the original concept art. I really wanted this to become an official set (and a lot of us thought it would), but when it didn't make the cut, I modified the heck out of it and made my own. This is more of a MOC than a mod at this point, but it does retain the original proportions and overall shaping, so it's more fair to call it a mod still. I'm most happy with the shaping of the tail and rear fascia. The headlights required some extreme lateral thinking, but it's a working, legal connection. v.1.1 update: sleeker C pillar, since the "hollow 45 degree slope" piece now comes in black. 1974 Lancia Stratos HF Stradale Original by Jonathan Elliott. Again, he's my favorite builder, and I wanted to take another crack at one of his amazing models. At first, I only wanted to modify it to allow a minifig to fit, but I ended up changing quite a bit: the sides are rounded, the rear deck is a bit extended and less gappy, the tail is more rounded and indicators are added, the exhaust was reshaped, and the louvers were re-done to use panel pieces. Of course an interior was added with textured seat, wheel, and gauges. 1980 Chevrolet K5 Blazer From set 75810. Just a recolor and stud delete, mainly. I really loved the K5 but didn't want the whole set, and teal has been making such a comeback, this seemed like a fun choice. I did have to redesign the internals for the hood/grill around the limited part selection in this color, though. The Transgenderal Lee Set mod of 76912. Mostly just a recolor to orange, but I did have to change parts of the nose, rear deck, pillars, and fenders to accommodate parts availability in this color. I'm very pleased with how the numbers on the sides turned out. I'm reluctant to post this one at all anymore because, despite being a pretty harmless pun, it has gotten me a tremendous amount of hatred and vitriol from users on many other websites. But, since I'm cataloguing every car I build here, up it goes.
