Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownThis model was originally by Hachiroku24 as the flying car driven by the Weasley's in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. In real life, the car type used in the film was made by Ford for sale in the United Kingdom and was called the "Anglia". This particular version (a 105-E Super) was built from 1959 - 1968. I've wanted a accurate version of the flying car driven by the Weasley's in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I have been doing this cycle of building, revising with newer parts, tearing apart, and repeat since 2002 when the original set 4728 (Escape from Privet Drive) was released. I changed the color from the original medium blue to black around 2004 and revised the wheel size around 2011. Now I have added a new style front end to the car via a design by Hachiroku24. Oh, and the mini-figure in the picture is my sig-fig, which is NOT included with the car in the LDD file. The car without my sig-fig. The car can seat two mini-figures on jumper plates, and also features opening doors and trunk with plenty of space. The rear of the car features a license plate and a jumper plate to represent the exhaust pipe. As I said, the car fits two mini-figures comfortably. (The steering wheel is in the wrong spot for UK driving, but I live in the USA so I changed it for right-side driving here in the States.) Here you can see the original Hachiroku24 model, which inspired me to revamp my car. If you want to build one of these according to the original designer, follow the instructions in video form in this topic here on Eurobricks. Comments, Questions, and Complaints are welcome, though any praise for the blue model and front bumper design should go to the original designer ( Hachiroku ) in his topic, as linked to above. If you are looking for the LDD file for my car, here it is.
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownThis model was inspired by two Harry Potter sets numbered 4841 (Hogwarts Express, 4th Edition) & 4728 (Escape from Privet Drive) plus a single Friends set number 41101 (Heartlake Grand hotel) to create this single vehicle type, the 1960's Ford Anglia 105-E. This isn't my first time creating this car, but it is my first time reworking the model so heavily.... usually I follow the same pattern set forth from this model: This is from way back in June 2007. And this is from today. Unfortunately, the only colors you can build this car in is white or black. To keep it visually interesting, the black car has white furnishings, while the white car has a dark bluish gray interior. The front of the car features headlight styling cues from Heartlake Grand Hotel's Taxicab, while retaining the grille work of set the Weasely's Anglia from the Hogwarts Express set. I also added hinge plates to the sides by the doors to represent mirrors. The rear of the car has the trunk design from 4728's version of the same flying car from the 2002 Chamber of Secrets set line. Oh, and the bumper features a license plate and tailpipe. The model features two off-center seats for mini-figures (two can fit in the car), opening trunk with plenty of luggage space, and two opening doors. Here is the LDD file for both the white and black model cars: http://www.moc-pages...1467244397m.lxf Comments, Questions, and complaints are always welcome, as I would love feedback on the models. Thanks in advance! EDIT: Here is a picture of an actual Anglia for reference, taken from Wikipedia. Here is the link to it's wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Anglia
Hi, as I'm going to to build some scenes from the Harry Potter movies for the Lego Fanwelt Event next year in Cologne, Germany, I began with planning these two magical vehicles: The Weasley's Flying Ford Anglia and the Knight Bus, emergency transport for the stranded witch or wizard. So here's a rendering of the LDD models: Magical vehicles from Harry Potter by Vaionaut I hope you like them ;) Best Vaionaut
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO LicensedHere is a revamped and revised version of Harry Potter set 4728, Escape from Privet Drive. It includes a updated 1959 Ford Anglia 105E (in medium blue of course!) and an enlarged house, with a lamp by the front door and a printed number four tile below that. (The tile print isn't in LDD yet) This is what the house looks like when it is closed. It doesn't look that great, but it certainly looks better than it it did in the original 2002 set! (Link to the set: http://brickset.com/...om-Privet-Drive ) The house features a upstairs bedroom with bed, chest-of-drawers, and a lamp. The ground floor features a table with two chairs, couch and a fireplace. This car is based on the Ford Anglia 105E, which was made from 1959 to 1968. It had a 997 cc overhead-valve straight-4 with an oversquare cylinder bore for an engine and a four-speed (manual) gearbox with synchromesh on the top three forward ratios. (this was replaced by an all-synchromesh box in September 1962.) ...And no, the flying gear is / was NOT a standard feature! The estate car version was tested by British "Motor" Magazine in 1959 and reached a top speed of 73.8 MPH (118.8 km/h) and could accelerate from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 26.9 seconds. (The version I built is the 2 door saloon) The inspiration for this model (and basis for most of it's design) was the 2002 Harry Potter set 4728, Escape from Privet Drive. The info above was read off of Wikipedia and retyped / rearranged. This particular model seen here is the 1959 version, complete with backward slanting rear window which supposedly kept it clear of rain... at least, that's what the advertisements said! The interior seating is not prototypical of the real car and does not really seat figures. HOWEVER, the model is modifiable to include doors which will allow two figures to sit inside. Also, the trunk opens to reveal a large luggage compartment. The car seen here is a heavily modified mash-up of sets 4728 and 71006, (Simpsons House, specifically the car) I used the same basic premise as the original Harry Potter set, but with the modern techniques and parts of the Simpsons pink car. I have the opening trunk and interior of the original set but I removed the opening doors on the premise of "it looks better and is much stronger". Now, I know this house isn't very accurate to the Movie / real location... It is more of a mash up of what the set was, and what could have been if it had been updated.
