  1. Will Speed Champions return for a fifth year?! What Cars will we get?! Let’s find out!!
  2. The following creations were built to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 1999 Lego Racers computer game. Pieces new and old have come together to form these newly revised versions of the 8 boss cars. Please enjoy! 1) Captain Redbeard As you can see, Captain Redbeard's new ride uses the microbuild of his ship from set #40290 as a base fo this off-road beast of a racer. But it still retains the large exhausts and rear mounted pirate flag from his original car. The sails make this the tallest vehicle in the collection so far. .

    LEGO Speed Champions - Wishlists and Future Speculation

    NOTE: This is a wish list. Not confirmed at all. Hi there, i've been doing some thinking about what sets would be released in the Speed Champions range for the next two years if I were in charge of it. I wanted to include a few new manufacturers and have some cars from manufacturers that are already asscociated with the theme. I won't be able to include photos of the cars due to the memory limit so, you'll have to look them up if you want to know what they look like. Please let me know what you think. Thank you. 2020 Newcomers: BMW & Lamborghini Stand-Alone Cars Lamborghini Aventador SVJ The range has almost all of the major supercar manufacturers. But not Lamborghini. Why? They're owned by VW like Audi and Bugatti are, so Lambo should be within easy reach. So, in this wave, Lambo is represented in the stand-alone £12.99 car collection by the latest variation of the company's flagship: The Aventador SVJ. My choice of colour scheme would be a yellow one with black wheels. The accessory would be an overhanging set of traffic lights. BMW iFE. 18 Another easy manufacturer to drag into the SC range would be Mini's current owners: BMW. Not only that but their entry in the current season of Formula E. It would really be interesting to see how Lego would tackle the complex design of current Formula E cars such as the wings and the halo around the cockpit. The trackside accessory would be a piece of wall with a jail door piece attached to the top as a fence. Ferrari 330 P4 Yes, I know, Ferrari have shown up to the party a lot already but when it comes to classics, the Stable Of The Prancing Horse still has some unplumbed depths. Plus, the 330 P4 would be a way to get the new mudguard pieces in red cheaper and easier. It wouldn't have a trackside accessory but instead, similar to the F40, this set would include pieces to turn it from the hard top Berlinetta version to the open top spider version. BMW M4 GTS We round up the 2020 stand alone car range with another Beemer. This time, the hardcore M4 GTS. It would be coloured dark grey and include orange wheels with silver wheel covers. The McLaren Senna was dark grey with orange wheels so the M4 GTS should already be easier to make. The trackside accessory would be a tool cart. Playsets 2019 BMW M8 GTE & 1979 BMW M1 Procar This would be the small £34.99 price range playset for 2020 and features two BMW race cars both old and new. Both would share similar paint schemes (white, red and blue) and would also include a pit wall with a control centre. Minifigures included would of course be two drivers and two BMW pit crew members. One male, one female. Lamborghini Huracan GT3 EVO & Diablo GT2 Challenge Finally, we top off the 2020 range with a set that fits into the £69.99 range. It would include the latest iteration of Lambo's Huracan GT3 race car in lime green and the 1998 GT2 spec Diablo in orange. And the buildings included would be a start/finish line light setup, a podium building similar to that from the 2015 Porsche 911 GT set, a tool cart, a fuel cart and a jumbotron with interchangeable decorated tiles, each with an image of one of the two cars racing around the track with some TV graphics. Minifigs would include 2 drivers, 3 pit crew members, a cameraman and a reporter with a microphone. 2021 Newcomers: Toyota and Aston Martin Stand-Alone Cars Mercedes Benz AMG ONE Mercedes are readying their new F1 engined hypercar, the AMG ONE. Now, come on. How could this not be in the Speed Champions range? Mercedes have been a partner of the theme already and I feel if they were to return, it should be with this. It would be light bluish grey with silver wheels. The trackside accessory would be a set of cones like you got with the McLaren P1 and Bugatti Chiron sets. Aston Martin Valkyrie The AMG ONE's main rival should also make an appearance here too. In a similar way the 2015 range kicked off with the "Hybrid Hypercar Holy Trinity". It'd be interesting to see how TLG would pull off it's simple yet complex shape. The colour would either be dark grey, dark blue or black with black wheels. The trackside accessory would be a digital readout similar to the accessory we got with the 1968 Mustang set but with a speed readout. Mini John Cooper Works GP Last year, at the Goodwood Festival Of Speed, I first laid eyes on the latest Mini JCW GP in concept form and thought it was one of the best looking hot hatches I had ever seen, especially amongst the vintage racing paraphernalia that was displayed with it. It would also be a way that Lego could release the SC wheels in red. The accessory included would be a pair of 1x6 rumble strips. Toyota Supra Many fans have begged for a Japanese manufacturer to appear in the SC range and after some consideration, the one most likely to show up would be Toyota which is being represented in the £12.99 range by none other than the new Supra. Possible colours would either be red, yellow or white. Or if the Supra were to take part in GTE racing, than that version would be the one getting picked. The accessory would depend on which one is chosen. If it's the road one, then a traffic light. If it's the race version, a small podium with a gold cup. Playsets 2020 Toyota GR Super Sport "LM Hypercar" & 1999 Toyota GT-ONE This is where things get good. In case you don't know, in 2020, the WEC is to replace LMP1 with a new class of "Hypercars" which will be more cost efficient and more based around road cars. Plus, Toyota recently announced that they would be making a new supercar after their 2018 Le Mans victory. I have no doubt in my mind that the GR Super Sport will be Toyota's representitive in this new class and as a result, this set will include the racing version of that. As for the other car, anyone who is familiar with the Gran Turismo games will know this car. A fine example of the old GT1 class that used to rule Le Mans in the 90's. It would be cool to include it in this set. The accessory would be a medium sized trophy podium. Minifigures would include 2 drivers and a photographer. Aston Martin Vantage GTE Fuel Stop The mid-size playset in this range would include a lime green GTE spec Vantage but without a second car, it leaves more room for a larger structure. In this case a pit stop similar to the one from set 75883 but a bit shorter in length and include a fuel tank on the outside of the pit entrance, a tool cart, and a small control centre on the inside of the garage. Minifigures included would be a driver and 4 pit crew members. 1954 Mercedes Race Transporter, 1954 W196 and 2020 Mercedes Petronas F1 Car And we top it all off with a very interesting addition. The very unique blue "Renntransporter" would be an 8 wide build with the SC wheels coming out in blue for the first time. The set would also include the number #12 W196 F1 car driven by Jaun Manuel Fangio and of course, a modern Mercedes F1 from 2020. Accessories would include a finish line with some rumble strips and a small marshal's post. Because this set would include 2 cars and a medium sized truck, the rest of the set would be quite minimalistic. Minifigures would include drivers for the 2 F1 cars and the truck, a marshal with flags and a spectating enthusiast. So, that's it. That's what I would have lined up for the Speed Champions range if I were put in charge of it. Please let me know what you think of my ideas below. Thanks for reading!
  4. As you may know, 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the Lego Racers computer game. I doubt that Lego themselves will do anything to celebrate it (I mean, there's still no word on the progress of The Billion Brick Race) Which is why I want to. And here's a little preview of how I choose to start the celebration.... Yup, as you can see, I have created a modernised version of Rocket Racer's car. I've also done the other 7 boss cars too which will be revealed on January 2019. Also, I can finally reveal that over the past couple of years, I have commissioned MINIFIGS.ME to create custom minifigures of both Rocket Racer and Veronica Voltage. (As you can tell by the helmet.) I hope you will enjoy the other racers as they come. And don't worry, the final photos will be in much better quality. I just wanted to make a flashy teaser image with my blue lighting, that's all! I also want to host a contest themed around this wonderfully unique kart racer! Would anyone be interested in entering if I started one?
  5. I'm amazed there isn't already a discussion topic for this, but yea, let's use this thread to talk Pixar films and related things. Personally, I love most Pixar films. Y'all probably know that the Toy Story series is my favorite trilogy of films. The next Pixar film coming out is Monsters University, which is Pixar's first prequel film. There is also talks of Finding Nemo 2 coming out in the near future. But, I particularly started this topic today as news just came out that the Cars spinoff, Planes, has been announced to be released in theaters on August 9th, 2013. It's kind of ironic as this is not going to be a film produced by Pixar. I will not be looking forward to Planes after the disaster that was Cars 2. Oh, and I really wonder if they'll make Planes LEGO sets.
  6. Hey there, I wonder if anyone is interested in seeing smaller and or bigger Lego engine pieces. You know those light bluish grey engine block pieces, connecting rods and yellow piston pieces? Smaller and bigger versions of those. Smaller versions can be used to put inside a moc built locomotive, boat or possibly a semi or even pneumatic engines. Bigger ones could be used for huge ships or pneumatic engines. So what do you guys think about this? I could design these things and open a bricklink store for you to buy. Let me know, I think it's a useful idea...

    10-wide MOC family cars

    My current fleet of 5-wide cars below, they are all-opening (hoods/bonnets, all four doors, rear hatch/trunk door) they are all four-doors (when applicable, the minivan is 3 doors) and seek to emulate the look of standard regular family cars we see on the streets, I don't care much for fancy exotic cars, I am trying to specialized on dorky regular family production cars (mostly following a 70's or 80's design) Some of them are lacking an interior, some have an interior, but I am still waiting for parts to create the seats and panels and steering wheels, as of June 2018. Model 1 - "White 1972 Ford LTD" - November 2017 - my first 10-wide car, it emulates a typical large American sedan from the 70s. Model 2 - "Red 1986 Opel Kadett" - December 2017 - my second try went for a late 80's compact fastback European style car, that ended up looking a bit like a Kadett (with a hint at an Audi Quattro rear). I eventually created alternative sedan and station wagon rears for that red car, and these rears can still be easily switched, making the read fastback a 3-in-1 "transformer" model! I leave it in the sedan configuration now because I have a separate hatchback and a separate Model 3 - "Yellow 1981 Toyota Corona Station Wagon" looks a lot like a station wagon version of the Red Fastback, but with a higher, bulkier front and a longer rear. Model 4 - Blue Fastback - an almost exact copy of Model 2, made to look a bit simpler, like a base model. Model 5 - Tan-Brown minivan - just made it a few days ago and it's in early prototype stage, I intend to extend it 2 studs and make a better rear and roof. The red version of the fastback has a gray streak in the C column, ending at the corner roof slope There is also my 16-wide motorized remote controlled (all-opening) white sedan But I'll leave it for another thread!!!
  8. 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: 1. 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. 2. 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. 3. 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. 4. 1970 Chevrolet Camaro RS/Z28. I am incredibly honored that this build was featured on The Brothers Brick. I had some custom chromed pieces made by Chrome Block City, which you can see in the third photo. My favorite parts of this build have to be the semi-fastback and the split bumper. 5. 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. 6. 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Yeah, not so much of a "speed" car but 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. Mods: 1. 1966 Ford GT40 from 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 as only 1 was provided in just 1 Architecture set. Oh, and despite being dramatically lowered, it still fits a minifig! 2. 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0 from 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. 3. 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400SV 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. 4. Ford Model A hot rod from 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. 5. 1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 from 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.
  9. Hello, I start this topic to share with all my work with Lego : MOD MOC Reproducing your MOC Bargain on buying/selling The Lego convention I participated on To begin, please find a MOD of the mystery machine. I modified this nice and gentle van into a Carmaggedon version : I like the thumbler tyres, they fit very well to the Mystery Machine ! Hope you enjoy

    Porsche 919 EVO mod/moc

    Hey, im new here. haven't built any lego in about 8 years, but i saw the 919 set and it was screaming to be rebuilt into an evo. this may have already been done, im quite behind on the times. nor am i that skilled. so! at first glance, it looks pretty similar, but there is quite a lot changed: the addition of the ground effect sideskirts, the rebuilt fin and rear wing to match the EVO the rear wing is quite a complex thing, i was trying to get it at the right height and join it to the rear fin like it is in reality, which i managed with a minifig backpack fixing and an antenna nub holding a angle piece. its also been moved back to match the real car. (when not on the car, the sticker holds it together.) the front end is completely different, i just modified the stickers to fit- front cowl is lower, has a little split above the number to try and imitate the intake thats there on the real car, the sides of the front end above the splitter are a rounded piece to more match the actual car. no lights, obviously. that annoying rear cowl piece was changed for 2 different sized pieces to better recreate the actual curve the real car (s) have. just cut the sticker to fit. doesnt look too bad i think. broken antenna piece makes for a better antenna on a thing this size... the underneath is completely different as the LEGO official one had loads of gaps in the floor, the tile pieces on the diffuser are longer to reach under and the entire bottom is pretty much flat now. by no means a timely or particularly special thing, but was really fun for me after all this time. i was never especially good, still arent, but tell me what you think! its fun going through here looking at all these cool MOCs, had to contribute.... cheers.

    Cool Oldtimers on Lego Ideas

    https://ideascdn.lego.com/community/projects/bf2/fd2/5379251-o_1cbfnmj3r1q3tfpo1ijnmj19cds-NHSISQ5XhODY0w-thumbnail-full.jpg So I started a Lego Ideas Project. I have no idea if this is gonna make it. I thought of all my Mocs the oldtimers would be the most suitable for Ideas. Special thanks to Mahjqa for helping with photographing and photo-shopping. - Link Removed - Please support, vote and share if you like. Thanks for looking!
  13. Would you want to see a reboot of the multifaceted, everything automobile centric Racers theme? If so, what lines or subthemes would you like to see introduced or return for such a revival? Introduced in 2002 and ended in 2012, with Speed Champions informally replacing it three years later, I've always been fascinated by the theme in concept, as its many subthemes were so varied and distinct from one another in a way unlike many other lines' handling of their own subthemes. Though many Racers subthemes from then were too odd or goofy for my likening, I think Lego could do better with such a conceptually restraint-less line nowadays, with much room for a great number of possibilities.
  14. Hey there, i usually dont post in this forum (being an automobile builder mainly), but i just couldnt help but notice... I do see many layouts where Train Mocs and City sets are assembled together (obviously out of practical reasons). But the thing is, that it seems totally out of scale and relation to each other, not? Now i know some here really take their train scaling to an extreme level of detail and even apply a proper mathematical scale to them (especially 7 to 8 wide fraction). Yet, from my perspective adding City set vehicles or even Speed Champions into the same layout is kinda a bummer when it comes to size relations. It just makes the trains look small After trying out a few train cabs from 6 to 8 wide and comparing them to set vehicles and most 6 wide cars, it simply screams for the automobiles to be smaller in height, length and width. Cause actually most vehicles are oversized compared to the trains - it makes em somewhat "alien" to the whole display - IMO. Having lived through the 9V era, i think that even to this very day any 4 wide automobile will eventually look more true in scale to the layout than any 6 wide ever could. Since the Train widths (offical Lego scale) havent changed, yet their City vehicle scale did, why not go back to the roots a bit more? ;) 4 wides in displays these days are quite rare and tend to look plain, so perhaps something in between? I personally find that 5 wide is a good scale to work upon for standard automobile vehicles, since no matter if 6,7 or 8 wide trains, it simply passes as being in the same "universe" somewhat - just by being "smaller". One might think the detail is getting lost with a smaller automobile scale, but actually, using some of the professional train techniques people use on their Train MOCs, i personally figured that its possible to have the cars "as good looking and detailed" as their counterparts on rails....or at least i believe so^^ Here a supercar example in 5+ wide compared to an offical SC car on a flatbed cargo wagon compared to the "scaling" of the Emerald Express Train Cab. I personally think it blends in better with the allready small 6 wide trains (or 7 wide aswell)...thoughts? Cars and trains - the scale issue. by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr
  15. After taking a shot at creating a couple of 9-wide 2017 F1 cars, I though it would be fun to turn the clock back 50 years… to 1967. The cars back then were incredibly dangerous mid-engine-missiles, but I have been a fan of their classic look and simplicity for a long time. I made an effort to recreate one in 8-wide LEGO as a kid, but I was never fully satisfied with the results. Today I’ve started all over with new designs, and I’ve done my best to capture some key details that made these cars look so distinct. I present to you the Ferrari 312 vs. the Lotus 49. ^ And here they are! The yellow racing livery on the nose of the Lotus is made up of five individual custom stickers, and nothing is folded. I felt there were no attractive options for brick-built livery, plus I knew I’d have to make stickers regardless for the racing numbers, “TEAM LOTUS” logos, etc. ^ The ’67 Ferrari 312 is one of my absolute F1 favorites, producing what is perhaps my favorite engine sound of all time. It was featured prominently in that Ferrari/Shell V-power commercial showcasing a variety of Ferrari’s Grand Prix machines. ^ The iconic Lotus 49 was easily the fastest F1 car in ’67, but arguably lost the championship because it… broke a lot. Still, with the innovation of bolting the engine directly to the chassis to act as part of the car’s structure, Lotus effectively changed the sport. ^ The raised lip surrounding the cockpit is, in my opinion, an important aspect of these classic cars’ look. I tried several ideas for capturing it before settling on this one. ^ The sections of the Lotus’ low lying exhaust pipes seen beneath the rear axle are actually attached separately from the rest of the pipes seen in the rear, using minifigure “Tool Box Wrench” pieces. ^ These two models, like their real life counterparts, differ most visibly in shape towards the rear. While there was no way to capture every detail in this scale, I did my best to approximate the distinct look of each car. The Ferrari’s 3-litre V12 engine is very different from the Lotus’ famous Cosworth DFV V8. ^ Note that the rear tyres are wider than the fronts, just like the real cars. Those older LEGO tyres actually fit perfectly on the newer Speed Champions wheels, which really worked great for these MOCs. ^ These classic cars are essentially in scale with both of the 2017 F1 cars I built a little while ago. The wheelbase of this Ferrari 312 is just over 2/3rds the length of the wheelbase on the Ferrari SF70H, which is accurate! The 2017 cars are also a bit wider than the 1967 cars (9-wide vs. 8-wide), which is also just about right. ^ While full minifigures can’t fit in the cars’ narrow cockpits, it is possible to build “drivers” using minifig heads on 1x1 bricks with a round 1x1 plates underneath. They may look like bizarre board game pieces on their own, but they work well inside the cars for display. Thanks for taking a moment to look at my MOCs! I've also posted this on MOCpages (link), and larger images can be found on my Flickr page (link). Comments and feedback are always appreciated.
  16. 2017 ranks as one of my favorite years for F1 in the last decade. I love the improvements to the cars’ aesthetics, and the racing got back to record-setting speeds. Beyond that, Ferrari made a strong return to form that really took the fight to Mercedes, and I could not be happier with that development. 2018’s cars are set to debut later this month (and introduce cockpit protection to the sport), but I wanted to take one last look at the 2017 season by capturing some of it in LEGO. I present to you the Ferrari SF70H vs. the Mercedes W08. ^ Here they are! I really tried to capture the proportions of the cars as well as I could in this scale while keeping the designs fairly detailed. ^ I originally built the W08 with actual green pieces, but eventually opted to just give the car it's correct colors using custom made stickers on gray parts. It just looked so much better this way. ^ The #5 driver numbers on the SF70H are the only custom stickers I had to make for it. The rest are from Speed Champions sets (I almost always save the stickers). ^ The Mercedes has a slightly longer wheelbase than the Ferrari, as seen on the real cars (example). ^ The Mercedes also has a slimmer nose than the Ferrari, again to mimic the real cars. The front wing "aero" varies between the two models as well. ^ The last major difference between the two models are the engine covers; The Ferrari has it's T-wing mounted directly to the shark fin, whereas the Mercedes has it mounted on it's own little support arm. ^ The drivers are made with the "driver body" pieces that were included in a ton of the 2002 Racers sets. These two are from "4593 Zero Hurricane & Red Blizzard", with helmets and customized minfig heads. While it would be possible to make full minfigs fit in these cars, I don't think it's possible to do so without making the cockpit area look considerably less accurate. In the last four years I've only built one other model, but alongside these two I'll be putting up a few more replica F1 cars in 2018 for sure. This is my first time posting a creation on Eurobricks, so thanks so much for taking the time to look at my MOCs! I've also posted this to MOCpages (link), and larger images can be found on my new Flickr page (link). EDIT: Bonus photo comparison of the real SF70H vs the MOC version;
  17. Hi friends, You know me for my big scaled one of a kind ship models that i build in commission for ship onwers and shipyards and have build many of them, but the most time i create and design and liver very exclusive construction kits for my clients. The last 3 year i have created more than 10 different kits and sold a couple of Thousand of them. My designs with the construction kits are nothing, without the great work from my great friend JunkstyleGio for all the renders and instructions and Jaap Technic for his sticker sheets. This year is a very busy and the first 4 sets are ready to deliver out and here is the first sneak previeuw of the first construction kit that is gona be deliver to a client in Brasil this week. It's a Tugboat that is build at the scale 1/87 and have 1457 pieces and is for my client a new build tugboat that is liver by Damen shipsyard design 2412, build in Brasil and is sailing in the second week of August. Here are the first pictures of the construction kit and later on more news of her. I hope you like it, and this is a set and not a one of kind model where i can go mad in details. And JunkstyleGio and me make a joke in the disclaimer and the client must laugh very much on it and have to stay in the final printart. Regards, Edwin
  18. First, Merry Xmas to all and happy new year... :) For fourth year in a row this are my 4 lego vehicles for this year (yep im still lazy...only 4 per year... XD), hope you like it. C&C allways wellcome :) Tuk tuk! (the funny thing this is the smallest of all 4, but have space for two minifig....lego logic!) Last year I made 2 versions of the LEGO 6672 Safari Off Road Vehicle, and was fun to make it, so this year I try to "upgrade" other of my favourite sets the 6646 Screaming patriot!!! the rear and the front as some kind akward as the original one :P... A little black sport car....(i want to make some front like the speed champion ford gt, but this year all sport cars moc have that...so, maybe next year) Some kind of hot rod semi truck with grummpy look....and the perfect reason to use the mullet! Don´t know why the text seems to be a link.....Oo!...
  19. Thought I'd collect my growing series of six-wide builds into one place as my feed on Flickr is getting pretty dense. I'd struggled to get the Speed Champions cars proportioned to my liking (I ended up with slightly outrageous 10-wide P1 prototypes), meanwhile my Flickr feed has a continuous drizzle of inspiring builds done around the slightly smaller City Scale fenders and tires. Somehow this scale just works. While there are a good many builders on Flickr working at this scale and all their work inspires in some way, I would like to call out ER0L, Tom Netherton and Adrian Barbour aka BrickMonkey in particular as their approaches, shared designs and instructions went a long way to kick-starting this series of building for me. I've adopted the techniques they honed which has given me a great platform to come up with some of my own tricks. Also, there's sort of an easter-egg in all of them; rather than filling the inner spaces of the chassis with big bricks a la Speed Champions, I like to tuck in plate-built details like engines and chassis structures. These are all up on Flickr > Prototyp with plenty of photos of each if you'd like to check them out more closely. Will update here with new builds from time to time. 1972 Datsun 510 A cooler version of my college car (if I weren't so broke the and had actually hopped up my Dime); fat MiniLites tucked into some flares, front and rear skirt work, and a twin-cam engine swap under the hood. Nissan Skyline KCG10 '72 Early work on the 510 ended up developing into the even cooler, lower, sleeker, meaner Skyline GTR "Hakosuka" McLaren P1 Unrelated in every way to TLG's Speed Champions P1; very long, very low, very curvy... Even the color is opposite. Particularly proud of the trick nose build and that TT wing plate as a rear diffuser (which, interestingly enough the new 720S Speed Champions model also uses) Built up in some colorways. Ferrari 458 Italia Distantly-related to BrickMonkey's 'chibi' style Ferrari 458 caricature. Like the McLaren, this one is also quite long and low. There's a plate-built V8 tucked in the mid-rear, too. (will need to build this one in more colors, too) Honda NSX Type R Adapted from Tom Netherton's Acura NSX with a new nose, new tail, and a v6 under the rear glass. Ford Mustang GT350 Another Tom Netherton-based build. His work on the nose and side panels is fantastic stuff. I reworked chassis to move the whole roof/cockpit area back a stud in order to play up the long-hood coupe proportions. Under the hood is just enough space for a hint of plate-built V8 and the GT's strut-tower cross brace. The tail is extended and incorporates a custom exhaust and diffuser setup. Porsche 935 '77 This MOC started out as a build of a 911 street car but got sidetracked by the desire to make something a little more outrageous (and to use the Speed Champions fender/tire combo). The turbofan wheel covers and front suspension camber are small design and technique triumphs. Some good bones here for a series of stickered replicas. And yes, there's a turbocharged, air-cooled flat 6 engine under the rear hood, too.
  20. "Barn Find" As a petrolhead I've always dreamed about finding a classic car hidden for years in an old barn or shed. And that is what is called "Barn find". My latest build showcases two car-hunters discovering a classic Bugatti Type 35 Grand Prix in a barn. Close to the blue machine you can see the old farmer with his dog showing the treasure, even if he doesn't know its real value. And the french beauty looks really in shape. The Bugatti Type 35 was the most successful of the Bugatti racing models, the famous "pur sang". Introduced at the Grand Prix of Lyon on August 3, 1924 the Type 35 was phenomenally successful, winning over 1,000 races in its time. A few days ago a 1925 model has been sold for over €1.4 million at the Artcurial auction in Paris. Thanks for stopping by. More pics and info: flickr

    Somewhat City scaled cars

    After the kind of letdown in the scaling model forum which excluded MOCs smaller than 1/20, i'm back in with my 1/43 scales in this forum. Hope you dont mind. IMO the scale is nice for modular layouts and looks splendid next to figs, yet i know how different opinions are on functionality, minifig fitting etc. i will keep this as a single thread with new cars to follow, so stay tuned if you like em. First off, a Porsche 991 (a 911 from 2011) Porsche 991 a by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Porsche 991 b by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr its 5,6 to 5,2 studs wide and about 13 studs long. Fits no fig, but has window details instead.
  22. Hi everyone, Me and my brother are planning to build an Adventurers layout based on the Desert and Jungle series. My brother will build the Desert part of the landscape and I will build the Amazon part. I have started with the vehicles, because if I start building the landscape, I do not have the parts for the vehicles. I have built several cars (I think 12). 4 of those cars will be used in a town The left car is a little based based on the Island Racer of the Dino Island. I have created one jeep inspired from a jeep of Indiana Jones. It was the idea to make the jeep 7 studs wide. I have created another car and someone compared it with the car of Donald Duck. The focus was on the mudguards. I have created a ship/boat based on the River Expedition set of the Amazone. The boat has another color scheme than the set, but the structure is almost the same. For more pictures you can see them in the Flickr album. Various Adventurers Creations I still need to take some pictures of other cars. I will do that at the end of the week. Questions and feedback are welcome. Sander

    Corvette C7 ZR1 MOC

    Hey Guys I am new to Eurobricks, but here is my first MOC that I have posted to the forum. It is a Corvette C7 ZR1 with a body made out of system bricks and a Technic chassis. The car has steering, a functioning small-cylinder model V8, and opening doors. However, there is no suspension or interior. I have plans to make the car RC, but that will be quite the challenge. You can check out the video below.

    1/43 Small Scale Cars

    Hey there, just noticed the scaleres finally got their own forum which is great news When it came to my small scale of 1/43 its always been kind of on the edge of being somewhat "good with minifigs" yet not really made for them, so i mainly posted into town forum despite them not being the standard town cars apporach. The figs mainly serve as a size relevance here. 6 studs is 2m. A minifig is 1,7 m high. Now onto some pictures of my recent ones, i hope you enjoy :) Ferrari on model stand by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Ford Speed Champions by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Familia Lamborghini by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr ambulance US by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Vintage Racing Porsche by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Sports SUV by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr T3 German Ambulance by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr A Smart choice 1 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr VW T1 redesigns by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr

    Cars for Modular Round 2

    Modulars are the big player in the category of "AFOL" aimed sets and we all have seen probably several displays online/on conventions. It has always bothered me how TLG doesnt really include more cars to that line or a car based buidling (garage etc). Its either that City is the series for that (to save some expanses) or that they dont really agree on a scale there (one must admit, the Cinema limousine is fairly poor designed and doenst match the City line designwise). Perhaps they just know we will find our own solutions ;) Therefore i ventured out last year to analyse and calculate sizes of certain elements, such as windows, doors and their standard measures (also comparing world wide) - since those are the only standards we have regarding the "modular scale", fixed elements. Everything else can vary (height, length etc), as it does irl. Thats why its not easy to say which scale we are actually getting here...which would in return be necessary to "agree" on a car scale I brainstormed it all into this old thread, which led me to 1/42 scale. ...and i've been updating the scale and ideas since, currently arriving to a 1/43 scale (the difference is quite huge in this micro scaling!) Now i know this is certainly not the usual approach and we will never know the "true scale" of modulars, leaving quite a lot of scale options possible. Also the following builds are rather "scale models" than "minifig cars" - but perhaps this is to somebodies liking here, so i just post the second run of vehicles for the fun of it. One of the main things i really like of working in this scale is the "puzzeling" of parts in several directions in SNOT, just like the modulars have it done in their detail areas. The other thing is that the size of vehicles lets the Modulars appear a lot bigger then when city scale/ Speed Champion is being used. So this car in its design principle is quite modularish, but if it blends in well i leave for you to decide ;) Nuff talk, pics: Modular context, sundown by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr scale universe 1:43 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Pickup by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr ambulance US by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Sports SUV by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Vintage Racing Porsche by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr VW T1 redesigns by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Car collection by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr
