    [MOC] Airwolf Supercopter

    Hi all, I'm happy to present you my Airwolf 1:25 scale model ! I started this project in 2013, inspired by Lego's 9396 Technic Rescue Helicopter. Seeing its front end, I thought "at last ! It must now be possible to make a convincing Airwolf model out of Lego !". I used Technic panels to get the aerodynamic shape properly, and have had good fun since then improving the model with new parts (the curved slopes for the exhaust for example). The model is based on the Universal Studios blueprints. It accepts 3 minifigs inside - Stringfellow Hawke, Dominic Santini and Caitlin O'Shanessy. Weapons can be displayed in or out, like the landing gear - I considered making those articulated, but at this scale I just could not figure out how to do this so these are add-ons parts. At the time I wished Lego would accept it in their Ideas project, but I got a reply that "being a military vehicle, Airwolf would not be allowed Lego support". I was quite gutted and just kept it for myself. Anyway, I'm happy to share it now ! After completing my Airwolf model, I felt I needed to make a full set of toys to make it more playable. The Bell 206s are based on the factory blueprints - also at 1:25 scale - and my first version of the Jeep was loosely based on Zed's MOC Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. Since 2013 it has evolved quite a bit, though ! Also, it was good fun reproducing Archangel's limousine FIRM 1 ! As a Cadillac Seville owner in the eighties, it was nice trying to get the lines of this Fleetwood Brougham limo properly. I wish Lego would make studless wings for the front end, though !!! You will note that I could not resist creating minifigures for Archangel and his lovely bodyguards ! You might even recognise Marella and Gabrielle ;) I still feel compelled to show my models with Ukraine colours as the war is raging on. It must stop ! I remember watching Airwolf episodes where the Russians (the usual villains, the Cold War was still on) were pictured as normal people just wanting freedom and democracy. I hope this is still true ! You can see more pics Flickr album of course : I wish I could make nicer renderings, as the photos are far from perfect. But I still can't manage chrome and transparency properly with Blender. Talk about a learning curve... Anyway, I hope you will enjoy the pics !

    [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 Stud.io 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
  3. My latest MOC is finally complete, the Ecto-1 from the original 1984 Ghostbusters movie. This is a theme I haven't done anything before from and I was actually a bit surprised myself also that I got an inspiration to do this one. I always liked the Ectomobile and probably played around with the idea on some level but I never had any concrete plans. I think the build was mostly triggered by a random idea to try out a front end design using the fairly new 1x1 slope pieces for the hood corners. Once I had a decent version of the front end laid out, I decided to continue with the rest and see what happens. As usual there were many versions on the way and everything was changed many times over to arrive at the final design. The build takes some inspiration from the Lego Ideas 21108 set, obviously there are some similarities in part usage and the size in particular, but other than that I have made it fully from ground up. I had to use quite a few different techniques here and there to achieve the shapes I was looking for, and the car is actually made out of a few differently built sections. The base is a brick-built with the side skirts facing out, the front section has bricks facing more or less every possible way; up, down, front and sides, and the side and back panels are plate-built, sitting on top of the base. But with some useful new pieces (like the 3386 1x1x2/3 modified brick with a stud on top and side) it was possible to "bolt" everything together quite sturdily. Some more pictures: As usual in my cars, no opening doors or windows but the roof is fairly easy to take out to reveal the interior. I added the main interior details and there is room for 4 minifigures, sitting in the same arrangement as the original (2 in front and 2 in the back but on right side facing each other). The Ecto-1 is fairly large vehicle to begin with, and with all the associated details the part count is also almost double to a "standard" Speed Champions style car at around 600, but that's how it is for the official sets as well. It was a fairly big project overall, but I'm quite happy about how it came out so I made the instructions for this one as well. More information can be found on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-168757/firefabric/1959-cadillac-ecto-1/
  4. This model was heavily inspired by the 2014 original eight-studs wide Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (set 21108) and a convertible MOD of that set I found on Rebrickable. I've been kicking this model around in my head since early September in several colors, (black, blue, dark gray, and red were among those considered) but green is the one I finally settled on. Instead of a late-50's Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance, it's now based on the (very similar) '59 Cadillac Eldorado. In the changeover, I added a hardtop (removable) roof, mirrors, and 1/2-stud offset side-by-side seating for two (with a third seat in the back row). I also changed around the wheels. I thought about putting a spare tire back here, but it proved to look stupid no matter what I did, so I left it off. The roof and rear windscreen are only connected by a few studs, making them removable. The car easily seats three figures total. Here is the original set 21108 I was inspired by, Ghostbuster Ecto-1 from 2014. Thoughts? EDIT 1/4/23: Real life photos added of finished model. Thoughts anybody?
  5. This model was heavily inspired by the 2014 original eight-studs wide Ghostbusters Ecto-1 (set 21108) and a MOD of that set I found on Rebrickable. Instead of a late-50's Cadillac Miller-Meteor ambulance, it's now based on the (very similar) '59 Cadillac Eldorado. In the changeover, I added a hardtop (removable) roof, different mirrors, 1/2-stud offset side-by-side seating for two, and opening doors. I also changed around the wheels to be less stressful to assemble compared to the original 2014 set. Rear view, with driver's side door opened up. The opening doors were taken from the Ecto-1 and 2 (set 75828) from 2016. The roof is only connected by two studs, making it easily removable. The car seats two figures easily. I plan on getting one of these in real life in a different color sometime in the near future, probably soon after Emmet's house parts arrive from Bricklink. Got any thoughts comments, or questions? Leave 'em below!
  6. Inspired by Mahjqa's cute little Porsches, I wanted to build something in a similar scale with Control+. This is the result. The car can be controlled with the Top Gear app or with third party stuff like the Brickcontroller 2 app. Being RC is its only function. 20200311_172321 by Appie NL, on Flickr 20200311_172050 by Appie NL, on Flickr 20200311_172113 by Appie NL, on Flickr And all of them together on the 42098 set 2020-03-11_05-34-06 by Appie NL, on Flickr
  7. This Kadillax (pronounced similar to "Cadillac") originally belonged to Black Hole Gang's second in command under the Brick Daddy. This financial / legal wizard is code-named Mister Gray. The Kadillax remains his personal transportation now that Gray is "retired", but this is a ruse to keep the Space Police off his tail. The real work that he does is helping rebel cells fight the Space Police IV forces, either by smuggling oppressed people around in his spacious limo and it's opening trunk, or using the secret panels to covertly transport gold or cash around to rebel hideouts or stops on the underground railroad to freedom in the galaxy's central core. The core is where sensors can not penetrate and big ships cannot enter due to the increased gravity and many asteroid chunks. In reality, this model started as 70906, Joker's Notorious Low-rider. I changed the colors, removed most of the golden parts and exchanged the bouncy wheels for hover pods. The vehicle's obvious weapons such as missile launcher / ray guns were removed when Mister Grays went clean, but the secret is that he kept the EMP generator and code scrambler as a precaution. These would prove to be most helpful in his new role as founder of the resistance network and underground railroad to help oppressed aliens and techno-mages to freedom. Mr. Gray also keeps a classic blaster in reach at all times... just in case. The vehicle can seat one figure at the drivers seat and figure in the passenger's seat . The trunk opens up and the roof is removable. After the death of the Brick Daddy, a criminal power vacuum caused a gang war to erupt between Squidman and the mysterious Mister Gray, who was Brick Daddy's shady accountant and corrupt lawyer. As Mister Gray slowly took over the Black Hole Gang from rival Squidman, he forced the Space Police III (who were at war with Blacktron 3 at the time) to regroup into the totalitarian Space Police IV by way of the Gang joining sides with Blacktron 3 forces. This proved critical to anti-alien leaning leaders of the Space Congress' plan of eradicating both the Blacktron scourge and Black Hole Gang. In the end, the Blacktron retreated to the edges of known space, and the Black Hole Gang was destroyed save two major members: Squidman, who was no longer a Black Hole Gang member when the Gang declared war of the Space Police, and Mister Gray, who sold out the gang's location to save himself. He is sometimes now called Mister "Grave" instead, but never to his face, as he alone was responsible for the saturation bombing of the Gang's hideout. This bombing killed most members and blew up it's ammo dump, thus destroying any evidence of Gray's complicity in any past crimes. After this, he decided his clean slate was not worth the blood on his hands, and thus helped found the resistance network to fight the Space Police IV forces. His immense wealth helps out those in need, and he personally smuggles wanted people around in his limo from time to time. As usual, comments, questions, complaints, and suggestions are always welcome!

    Lego 10260 Downtown Diner XL MOD

    Here is my take on modifying the Downtown Diner. I used two sets, and sort of mirrorbuild one set. The footprint is 56 studs. I widened the stairs on both sides with one stud to reach the 56 studs.
  10. I recently purchased 21108 and I think it's one of the all time better sets from Lego. I really enjoyed building it, and I can tell you the endresult is awesome. Like you didn't know already huh. Still ater a while some things started to bug me, and I thought I could improve on some details and overall look. The frontend is unmistakenly 59 Cadillac, but somehow it didn't look right... Wheelwell had a wrong angle; the frontwheels were set too far back; the 'eyebrows' above the headlights stick too far out; the hood is too flat compared to the fenders; too much room between frontwheel and lights because of wrong use of snot-technique, etc... I think I have improved the original model. After I modified the exterior I came across this post by flailix, and his work inspired me to do a proper interior and engine bay. I had just one problem: My car is one stud shorter than the original. So that meant I got even less room to place all 4 minifigs... But I managed to do so... ^ seating ALL 4 minifigs! ^ detailed V8 engine bay ^ notice not one but two exposed studs behind the frontwheel. Somehow it doesn't feel like Lego has forgotten something anymore It now looks like the car has a doorline. ^ I replaced the inverted slope which just had the wrong angle and made the bodywork between frontlights and wheel too large with a cheeseslope. By using other snot-parts I managed to shrink it a bit further and clean up the bumperside by separating it from the headlights. ^ Major modification was shortening the cab by a stud. It forced me to create open windows which I love. The windshield is set back to create more bodywork between frontwheel and windshield. The roofrack needed to be set back a stud creating less room at the back of the roof. Just like the real thing. The blue hoses are now compact together compared to the original set. I used an extra slope next to the hoses to let the body have a better flow. ^ now that the ladder is set back one stud I could attach it by clicking it into a red 1x1 clip I placed in the fin. On this side also more slope pieces above the rear wheel for better flow ^ I used a plate to give the bumper more mass. ^ the round studs don't bother me as much as they do on the original. It's much more a 'one piece' frontfender. It even suggested me to use round studs in the hoodcorners. It really helps rounding off the hoodcorners. The hood got raised because I thought it sat too low between the fenders. ^ now this was the most difficult task: Creating enough room for a decent interior that can seat all 4 minifigs. I'ts not able to hold all 4 backpacks but it does have room for a trap ^ sure it's kinda cosy but hey, it fits!
  11. On the dusty high plains of West Texas, the Llano Estacado of yore, memorialized in song and art, sited on a extant portion of the original Mother Road, Route 66, just west of Amarillo, rests Stan Marsh's Cadillac Ranch, a monument to the Open Highway, the Road Trip, and the Gasoline-Fueled Four-Wheel Behemoths that used to prowl these byways. Cadillac Ranch is a modern sculpture of a series of ten 1950's era Cadillacs buried hood first in the West Texas dirt, designed to illustrate the progression of body styles and tail fins through the decade and beyond, with vehicle models from 1949 to 1963 stuck unceremoniously in the ground. The installation is publically accessible - and untold numbers of visitors have left their marks - brightly painting every above-ground surface with a variety of designs, colors, and graffiti. My version of this iconic architectural landmark is a mini-fig scale depiction of four Cadillacs, containing 1217 parts. Designed and built over the course of about 6 months, going through several iterations. Enjoy. Additional images are in my brick safe gallery, including an image with CADILLAC RANCH title tile, and images with optional minifigs busy "decorating" image from Wikimedia Commons:
  12. Hey guys, I've built several Lego vehicles with MINDSTORMS® and decided to use my experiences with previous vehicles to build a real car. I was originally looking at building a Ford Escape, but the blueprint scaler measurements came out all wrong, so I turned to a Cadillac CTS-V. I'm a fan of the CTS-V, mostly because of the luxurious ride and smoking performance fused into one car. Here's a picture of the real-life vehicle: Please note beforehand that I am building a model based off the Cadillac CTS-V, but not necessarily an exact replica, partly due to less than a total of 2,000 pieces and partly because I don't have a lot of pieces of just one color I'll try to share the blueprint with measurements tomorrow, and because I am already working on a few builds at once, starting this work on spare parts will be a bit slow for a couple weeks. I hope you guys enjoy the progress! If you'd like to, please check out my previous vehicular builds: Outland3r - Outland3r 2.0 - RX2 Thund3r Truck - AWD MiniKart - Chopp3Rod -
  13. Here's my new MOC, a Model Team Cadillac Eldorado. I built the bottom of this (it's built upside-down) a year ago but put it aside because I couldn't get a studs-up chassis on it in a way that was solid and rigid enough to support the car. But now I finished it, and it's rigid: Some pics with the top down: And everything opens: The bottom is built studs-down because I hate the look of tubes from the bottom of plates, and I wanted to add the necessary details to the bottom as well: The yellow thing in this picture is to support it by the sides, because the roof isn't strong enough to support it upside down. I should try to fix that, but the main reason is that the front of the roof isn't attached to the windshield because of the convertible option:
  14. I rarely build cars, but a tricked out Cadillac Fleetwood Le Cabriolet lowrider in 1/10 scale had been on my wishlist for a while. After some extensive research on lowrider technicalities and Cadillac 1980s frame design, I started work. This model is constructed out of 100% genuine Lego bricks; many retro-chromed with plating on plastics true chrome technology…. so actual true metal layers there. The gold parts however are sprayed. For the first time I used UV printing technology to apply a mural directly on the bricks on the trunk lid. The only non-Lego parts are some wires and the ‘Rollerz’ club logo, which is lasercut from Acrylic. All in all a lot of new technology to support this build. Hope you like it!

Much more at thirdwigg.com Here are some pictures: Features: opening hood opening trunk four opening doors opening glove box working rear center armrest 6 Speed manual transmission with single pivot point limited slip differential rear independent suspension with increasing negative camber front independent suspension with increasing negative camber, kingpin inclination, and ackerman geometry a full size spare tire three interchangeable engine options to meet your needs or budget Video is . Enjoy.
  16. This Modular Ghostbusters Headquarters has been sized to fit in with the LEGO Modular Series. (Developed for LEGO Ideas by OGELSBOB (formerly known as "LEGODT") Only 16-studs wide. Thanks to Sergio512 for the wonderful design of the LEGO Ideas submission: Ghostbusters HQ. I copied some of the build techniques and design elements of the Sergio512 design to inspire the creation of this modular-sized Ghostbusters Headquarters. The garage door facade is made of dark brown 1x4 tiles that cover 1x5x8.5 stockade doors. In order to fit the Ecto-1 Cadillac inside the building with inward swinging doors, I had to extend the depth of the standard 32 stud baseplate by 16 studs. This creation is 16 studs by 48 studs. You can see from the photos that this creation fits in nicely with modular-proportioned buildings. The interior features a pod for Dr.Egon, Dr. Peter, Dr. Raymond & Winston Zeddemore to perform their duties and to relax with some snacks. Little do they know that above their secure pod, Slimer, a ghastly apparition, is about to invade their inner sanctum. What does everyone think about the playability of this MOC?

    Ecto-1 9V

    [Hopefully the right forum, but since the MOC is clearly town and minifig related, since the theme is not (yet) a licensed theme and since some movie cars like the Bluesmobile and the Mad Max Road Warrior are here, too, it might be a suitable place. If not, feel free to move it.] Hi all, I know, we have seen quite a few Ectos lately (btw good luck to Brent Waller with his Cuusoo proposal, that would be a fantastic set ), but well, since there are some special aspects with this one, it might be worth to upload it here, too. Now this can be called a co-operative MOC, since full credit for the whole 9V technical unit (plus roof and ghostbusters greeble) goes to my dear friend Brucewaynelego-Toyshansolo, see http://www.flickr.co...157623498552724. Since he had already found an ingenious solution for the main problem, I just had to transplant it into a new car body. Here you can see it in action (sorry for the poor quality): The car itself is 7 studs wide and built in the so-called bracket-and-tile style I have used for most of the cars lately. It fits 4 whole ghostbusters and a 9 volt light & sound battery box. The cab can be detached to get the figs in and out of the car: And that's it so far. C&C welcome as usual. Thanks for looking.
  18. [Edit, 23 Jan] Here you can see the finished car, a Cadillac Fleetwood. There are some explanations and some more pics in this post. [/Edit] Hi all, honestly spoken, not yet a MOC but still a WIP. But no sooner there was the idea that this might go well with 10232 Palace Cinema I wanted to share it with you as quickly as possible. The origin of this was the usual struggle with the windscreen height. The idea here is that you get a much nicer silhouette for such a car if you lower the windscreen into the body (you can do that only with a 7w body, of course). Some other issues result from this, but it is possible. This surely has been done before, but maybe not in a setting like this. The car is built in a bracket-and-tile style, this has several advantages. Due to the brackets the frame is quite stable and may serve as a platform for more cars in this style. It fits 3 figs and can easily be turned into a convertible. No custom chrome (so far) and as far as I can see no illegal or especially difficult techniques (except the tires maybe), so it can easily be copied. The whitewall tires are my own design (no paint), tailfins taken from Legohippie, see http://www.1000stein...y.php?id=241132 Alas, no openable doors which is not so nice in terms of a replacement for the original car, but I didn't find a way until now. More to come, or rather "soon in your Movie Theatre". Thanks for looking, c&c welcome as usual. Some more pics: Convertible: An older (three days or so ) version, as could be seen on Flickr). You may notice that the whole thing stays quite low in order not to "dwarf" the figs too much:
