    [WIP] Sports Car

    I loved the building process for the 3T Sports Sedan so much that I started another car. The 3T car needed a friend, and like every car maker who creates a competent sedan and follows it up with a CUV, I will too. Nope. I'm making a sports car. Again, this will be a mid-scale manual sports car with following features in order of priority: Suspension Rear wheel drive HOG steering Steering wheel Sequential 4 speed transmission (currently this one, thanks @Didumos69) Mid engined Flat 4 Discrete gear-change function Design language similar to the 3T Here is the first draft with a Porsche Cayman in the back of my mind, and you'll note a couple of problems already. The suspension is set, and will not change much. The hardpoints are also set, so the wheel base will not change, the rear overhang, height, and width will not change, and the seat and steering wheel placement will not change. Everything else may require some shifting, such as the length and front overhang, and internal placement of components. I do not like the HOG placement, and connecting the steering wheel is going to cause some problems at this point. So I could move the transmission back to the center of the car, and connect the steering wheel and place the HOD on the dash. I could also move the engine behind the rear axle which could lower it by one stud, and bring 6 pistons. But then there is no way this does not finish as a 911. What do you think. Move the engine to the back? Or keep the cabin of the car cluttered with steering and drivetrain parts? I do not have a solution for the changeover yet, so will be coming once I know where everything is placed.
  2. After three months of iterating upon its design in LDD, 111.34 Australian dollars and half an hour of building, my McLaren F1 is complete! The total number of parts is approximately individual 165 pieces (this includes wheels and tyres being counted as separate parts), and two of the main body pieces (leading up to the rear wheel arches) come from a 130 dollar LEGO set. There is not an angle that the McLaren F1 has that isn't iconic. From its rounded, short rear-end and taillights to its slim front nose, the car's entire design philosophy was based solely on how light its designers could get it to be - and even then, they weren't happy. What supercar is complete without some rich guy in his freshly-pressed (and very plasticy, in this case) suit and suitcase? It fits a minifigure! Barely. LDD likes to assume you can phase parts together, so while I was able to add a minifigure and let it sit comfortably in LDD, I'm forced to remove the minifigure's hair/hat/etc for it to fit in real life. To say it's a tight squeeze is an understatement. I saved the best for last, so, of course, what McLaren F1 would be complete without a "Longtail"?

  3. I design Test car 8865 Evo. It is studless. It has four wheel drive, V8 engine, suspention on all wheels, can open the trunk, steering, adjustable seats and 4speed gearbox. And of course the headlights can tilt down also. it has between 1100 - 1150 parts. I shall post free instructions when I am finish. Here is a picture from LDD. I need more parts, but here you can see the gearbox and two differentials I make instructions. Here from Ldraw:
  4. Currently working on a new creation with another designer on Eurobricks @Aventador2004 Shots coming tomorrow, if all goes as planned. If you enjoy this collaboration, don't worry there will be more.
  5. Hi, This is my newest 1/42 scale model of a Ferrari Testarossa (ish^^). Without the grilles its hardly a rossa, but if one would add custom stickers on a real one, it could turn into one ;) The whole build is 5 wide in front and ends in 6 wide at the rear end and taillights. I also rendered my first 360° view and arranged a small video clip for it. Enjoy!

  6. Hello All! Check my latest MOCs below: Different types of old-timer vehicles. I have built these for the Lego modular buildings, trying to fit to the age and style. Your comments are welcome!:) More images of this car in my Flickr set: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjRhLYVj More images of the yellow bus in my Flickr set: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjRhNGhL And finally another special car: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjRgZF2f Enjoy! Update (22.02.2014.): New arrivals in my old-timer garage! Hey guys! Check out the all-new vehicles to be driven in the streets of Lego Town! This blue car is a real chauffeur-driven exclusive car, which is built to fit the age of the classic lego Town. The passenger (a CEO) is a bit angry because the streets are quite congested and he is late. So finally, he jumps out and takes the luggage out of the car by himself. This guy in green is a lucky owner of the black convertible, with which he gathers a lot of attraction. He does not have to stop by the lady in red (since this is just a one seater) so he just drivers by her. What a day:) Enjoy!

    [MOC] Testarossa, Miami Vice

    Hi everyone, i recently finished this 1/42 minifigure scale model of the legendary Ferrari Testarossa. Probably best known from the show "Miami Vice" -classic! Was quite a hard one to get the shaping right....some nights were spend on this^^ The original is 4,5 m long -> with 1/42 its 13 studs in length whilst the minifigure is 5 studs high equaling 1,75m The width is really special on this car, since the back half is about 2 m wide, the front however 1,80+ m -> therefore i did the front area 6 wide, and the back 7 wide. its a bit too wide by 15 cm on each side in real life - but since the figs are so wide, i decided to do it that way to compensate that matter Now feel free to enjoy the pics;) Ferrari Testarossa Miami Vice by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Ferrari Testarossa back by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Ferrari Testarossa yellow by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Ferarri Testarossa top view by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Ferrari Testarossa by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr
  8. Welcome to the build-review of (IMO) one of the finest mid-scale MOC's this year: Madoca1977's Corvette C3 Stingray. Madoca was so kind to provide photo-instructions of this MOC, which allowed me to make an MLCad-file and complete building instructions. The instructions can be downloaded here. Blakbird made some renders to complete this project. Specifications: Number of parts: 1187 (including the remote-controller) Size (WxDxH): 21 x 49 x 14 studs Propulsion: 2 x L-motor, rear-wheel-drive Steering: 1 x Servo-motor Power-source: 1 x 8878 rechargeable battery or 88000 AAA-batterybox Lights: 4 x PF-LED's Building process: Building this MOC starts with making the rear-chassis, which has the drivetrain and suspension. The suspension-design is very interresting and unlike any suspension design I've ever seen. It uses Unimog ball-joints to create independent suspension while still having a very narrow chassis, while still mainaining the differential for the rear-wheel-drive. Also, the space for the battery-box is prepared, allowing the batterybox to be perfectly centered. Next is the front-chassis. Again the suspension design is quite original. It must have been quite a challenge for Madoca to fit the complete independent suspension system for a model this slim. The suspension travell is quite small. Both the left and right wheel share the same set of LBG 6,5L shock-absorbers. This section also has the Servo-motor for steering. It's was bit trucky to build because one of the axles in the steering system had to be rotated 45 degrees to achieve a perfect return-to-centre-steering. The steering lock is not the biggest which can be achieved with the servo-motor, but this is due to the use of 6571 small steering arm . Next is attaching the L-motors to the front-chassis and joining the 2 chassis-sections for 1 complete chassis. The final construction feels sturdy and well-braced and well-supported. This chassis will survive heavy driving sessions ! Then we add all the remaining Power-Functions elements. Since this model has 4 sets of PF-lights, there are a lot of wires ! But there's enough space for every wire to be well hidden inside the chassis. All the lights are connected to 1 PF-switch. The bodywork for the rear section is up next. This is the first preview of the sleek lines and curves of this MOC. Panels and liftarms are placed in angled posisions in very creative ways. The rear bonnet provides easy access to the battery-box, which can easily be removed for exchanging batteries. After finishing the rear end, another surprise is coming up, which is my favorite feature of this model. There's a smart switching system, which connects the PF-switch to a lever in the dashboard and to the elevating-mechanism of the headlights. When operating this lever, the lights pop out and are switched on simultainiously, marvelous !!! All that's left is to finish the bodywork. The more panels are added, the nices the model looks. And that's what makes it one of the nicest MOC's this year: the final model looks extremely good. I compared it to some photo's of the real car, and it's surprising to see how detailed the lines and curves of this car are reproduced using technic panels, liftarms and connectors. And it's especially remarkable, since it's only a MID-scale MOC. Kudos to Madoca for this exquisite design ! The only thing I didn't like so much is the colour of the seats. Since they're black, they are barely visible from the outside and don't stand out at all. It would like it more if they were DBG or LBG. But building them in DBG would require changing the design, since 1 of the parts used is not available in DBG. Performance: Allthough the model is relatively heavy for it's size, the driving-performance is very nice. It drives quite fast. And the final steering-lock is acceptable, taking into account the length of the car and the specific steering-parts used. The original model uses 2 24z white clutch-wheels in the drivetrain. I deceded to replace them with DBG 24z gears for a more direct response. I kept the white clutch-gears in the instructions. One thing I liked less is that some details of the bodywork (especially the headlights) come off easily while driving. The bodywork is a bit fragile and cannot withstand accidental collisions very well. There were a few tricky parts to build. Placing the PF-switch and routing all the cables to the correct position was quite a task. Rare parts There are only a few rare parts in this MOC. These are the 6571 steering arm small, the 6574 gear-rack 1x2 with 2 ball joints and the red 19L flex-axles, of which you need 4. And then there are 4 red connectors #4 and 6 red connectors #5 Some more pictures: Pintures in full resolution can be found here
