  1. Hello :) I bought myself a set 77012, this one with an airplane and a car. In general, the airplane is not bad, but we’re not talking about it now :) The car is really cool. Initially, I thought that it would be smaller and would have to be “sawing” and made wider to replenish the speedchampions collection, but, as it turned out, it itself is 8 cm wide :) As you probably already guessed, I couldn’t resist and instead of expanding the track I decided to subject it to other modifications :) I started with nicer (exclusively in my opinion) wheels, these were from the factory At the same time, instead of a dummy spare tire, I attached a spare tire - this way they will be a little calmer :) Of course, it was possible to attach a full-size one, but it stuck out too much. Next on the list is the roof, although in the desert there is not much precipitation, but in our turbulent times, everything can be expected :) I decided not to touch the locker and the space for the suitcase, because the second row wouldn’t fit there anyway, so let it be. Well, besides some insignificant little things, the finishing touch was a powerful air intake sticking out of the hood (to suck in more dust at full speed) - simply because there are such parts and I want to attach them somewhere :) And also a mirror, otherwise looking over your shoulder is not so productive) I still have thoughts about replacing the wheels (at least the front ones) with ones like those in the “digital” versions below... With modifications to this sample of the French automobile industry that passed through the hands of Lego designers (and this, by the way, was Citroen 11), the ideas have run out for now, but this is not the end :) ... I switched to my favorite studio and started recklessly damaging the car) The "factory model" is taken as a basis. Here the “spacer” has already found its place and the machine began to accommodate a little more figures (albeit without the proper comfort), but at least with easier access to the interior)) There are already two mirrors here, but the chest had to be thrown away) I don’t know where people stuffed the spare tire, but I want to believe that it’s there) Well, further along the beaten path If you seal all the cracks in the body, then the food will not spoil) Probably we still need to make such a mini-truck with an open platform, but later. For now I think these will be enough. Thank you all for your attention :) All the best and lots of details for creativity!
  2. NIBARIKI, Hayao Miyazaki's Citroën 2CV and Tokyo snowfall A few months ago I built the personal studio of Hayao Miyazaki, Japan's greatest animation director and co-founder of Studio Ghibli, best-loved of all the Japanese animation studios. Now it seems that it snowed heavily in Tokyo, so much so that Hayao is walking in snow with his snowshoes and with his Husky. A pair of skis are already loaded on the Citroën 2CV, heading towards Mount Fuji! Hope you like it!
  3. NIBARIKI, Hayao Miyazaki's Citroën 2CV My latest creation is a tribute to Hayao Miyazaki, Japan's greatest animation director and co-founder of Studio Ghibli, best-loved of all the Japanese animation studios. I had already written in the past how his films and his stories often inspired my creations, especially in terms of atmosphere and environments. Back in 1998, Hayao Miyazaki designed and built a house for his production company, called Nibariki. This house is located nearby Studio Ghibli's main building. Nibariki means 2 horsepower in Japanese and the name is a clear tribute to the beloved Citroën 2CV that the artist has been driving for more than forty years. Above you can see both Mr. Miyazaki's new office and his Citroën 2CV. And of course our beloved masterful storyteller too. Miyazaki bought his first 2CV as a university student in the early 1960s. It was a right-hand-drive model, imported from the U.K. and painted bright yellow. A 2CV first appeared in Miyazaki's first feature-length film, 1979's The Castle of Cagliostro. An action-adventure tale involving a mischievous gentlemen thief, the well known Lupin III, and featuring multiple car chases, including the heroine, Clarisse, escaping in her 2CV. Miyazaki's current Citroën is a 1987 2CV 6 painted in light gray and is exactly like the one you see in my latest creation.
  4. Lately I've been inspired by making flying cars, I had already made this taxi a few years ago in its "normal" mode I decided to give it an update with a lot of greebling, using only parts I already had without resorting to new purchases Inspirations from films like 5th element, Bladerunner and even Back to the future 2. the color scheme refers to the old taxis in Portugal, the taxi driver is a man with a sullen mustache, just like the taxi drivers in Lisbon Cyber Taxi 2067 by Sérgio Batista, no Flickr Cyber Taxi 2067 by Sérgio Batista, no Flickr Cyber Taxi 2067 by Sérgio Batista, no Flickr Cyber Taxi 2067 by Sérgio Batista, no Flickr Cyber Taxi 2067 by Sérgio Batista, no Flickr

    [MOC] Citroën 2CV Charleston

    The colour combination was obviously decided by the black fender piece 6255875 which will probably never exist in any other colour. Thankfully I had the necessary dark red parts to recreate the iconic colour scheme of the car.

  6. Hi! Two years ago, I had made a Gymkhana with Ken Block’s Ford Fiesta. It drifted well, but I wanted to do better using the BuWizz. So I decided to make a better chassis and pair it with the bodywork of the world’s best rally driver’s car : Sébastien loeb’s DS3! This new chassis‘ works in the same way as the old version, but it’s better at drifting. First of all, a reminder of how it works: When turning, the adherence at the rear axle is decreased. This is due to the caster angle of the front axle which lifts the rear interior wheel. (Like a karting il me semble qu’on dit a go-kart mais il faut vérifier!!) So, what changes with this new chassis compared to the old version? The caster angle is the same, but the swerve front wheels relative to their pivot point is decreased (?). The rigidity has been decreased, and the transmission has been upgraded. Now, it has less friction. The consequence is that the difference of adherence at the rear axle is smoother when turning, so drifting is more realistic. Furthermore, there is the amazing BuWizz power! However, the car isn’t easier to handle. (It takes a lot of time to control it perfectly) This car has got stickers, and building instructions! Both have been made by Thorsten Spelz, so thanks to him! Click here And now, the Gymkhana!
  7. Hello all, I present you here an old car you can easily see in France, my version of the famous Citroën 2CV. I saw those ones, which inspired my version on some points : MisterZumbi : Henrik Hoexbroe : and NanoC : I wanted mine to be playable, without illegal builds, accurate and strong. So here it is : 11.7 cm long, 4 cm large and 5 cm high. The dark and light green pieces are painted ones. On some pieces, you can see that I could have paint them better ... There is a beautiful contrast between the dark and light green and the grey and transparent elements. It can roll on the floor without problems thanks to the 1x1 round tiles, that don't block the front wheels. With details such as lights, an interior or rear-view mirrors, it is kind of realistic. Technically, it is quite simple, there are only three SNOTs, here is an LDD screen of one of them : An LDD file and PDF instructions are alvaible on my Bricksafe gallery. There you will also find bigger photos. This MOC was basically build for my uncle, who also has a 2CV, but a real one, with the same color sheme. It's going to be his christmas present ! As always, comments, remarks and suggestion are welcome .
  8. This will (hopefully) be my entry for the TC6 contest. Seeing all the great models already under construction (or almost finished), I don't see a lot of chances as a newbie, and I was thinking of withdrawing. So I thought it's a good idea to start a topic here and get me some peer pressure to finish ;-) As a big Citorën lover, the idea to build one of my favourite cars for this contest came quickly. But which vehicle would incorporate 4 independent PF functions? My choice was the Activa concept car from 1988: Shown at the 1988 Paris Motor Show, it showcased the electronically steered hydropneumatic suspension that was to show up the following year in the Citroën XM. Furthermore, it featured active anti-roll, four wheel drive and drive-by-wire four wheel steering with different modes, including crab steering. More info on http://www.citroenet...iva/activa.html The steering and suspension being the most interesting part for a Lego model, I chose the following 4 functions: _ driving (L-motor) _ front steering (servo) _ rear steering (servo) _ ride height (2 servos). I already finished the prototype of an axle (the two axles, having the same functionality, will be very similar; only difference will be that the front axle will include also the driving motor. Ride heights: The height adjustment mechanism was a bit of a challenge, as it has to move quite some weight on a small lever. It took me some time to brace the whole mechanism correctly. The next big challenge will now be to put the two axles in a strong enough chassis. The most difficult part however are the smooth, rounded lines of the Activa's body. I'm more at ease with mechanisms than with shapes, so let's see how I'll be doing... Comments and tips appreciated!
  9. This is another MOC I'd like to present as a part of my introduction here on Eurobricks. As my current work is still very much in a WIP state (but should be presentable very soon), it's another older model that I made in September/October 2011. As a long time Citroën aficionado, my favourite car maker was of course one of the first subjects I tried when going back into LEGO. One fascinating type of vehicles Citroën made in the '20s and '30s are half-tracked vehicles. Based on their normal production cars, they featured a relatively classic front end, while the rear wheels were replaced by tracks. Besides being used in snowy areas as buses or snowploughs, as agricultural or military vehicles, the most famous purpose of these cars were the expeditions Citroën undertook in those years. They led deep into the African or Asian continent where no vehicle has been before, sometimes crossing mountains where the cars had to be disassembled and carried over some dangerous passages. The model for my MOC was a 10HP type which was used for the crossing of Sahara in 1922/23. Pictures and more info (in French!) can be found here: http://passioncitro....e-22590275.html The goal for this build was to include the following: - fake engine with transmission to the rear tracks - front pendular axle with steering (via steering wheel) - tracks with suspension - realistic bodywork - scale given by the wheels from 8258 (used as front wheels) Later I included also an XL motor for driving the tracks, as the behaviour of the tracks on smooth floor was very unsatisfactory when the car was pushed. Some views of the finished vehicle: This is how the chassis looks without the body: The transmission from the motor to the driveshaft was later changed from 8T-8T-24T to 12T-36T. This shot shows a bit better how the steering and pendular axle work (on an older version of the chassis): The two movements are independent of each other, of course. Having no remote control at the time, I placed a switch between the battery box and the motor which I could take out of the car on its cable. This way, it was much easier to control the car than with fidgeting on the battery box switch: Of course I have disassembled the MOC long time ago, as I was pursuing other projects. However, the idea is still in my head to make an improved version of it with the more parts and experience I have now. I still like the front end a lot, including the mixed studless/studded building style of the front body. For me, it somehow reflects the look of these vehicles which always had an improvised touch. What I'd entirely revise are the tracks. The suspension is somewhat quirky and very far from the original. Also, the tracks are really not up to their job, and I'd use rubber tracks for better adhesion. Then I'd also add some more detail to the rear body, as it was rather plain looking. Plus a remote control for driving and steering. More pictures and some (low quality) videos are on my Bricksafe page: 10HP Kegresse
  10. Hi! Sooner or later, but I took the time to introduce you new MOC - a rally car. I will not write a lot, because want relax... Summer... I like rear suspension. It really work good. Idea is the same as on my small front suspension. Off course rear works better, and besides, I have improved it for the next model, so i'm doing instruction soon. Functions: - rear drive - all independent suspension - opening doors/hood - work front light - steering witn auto return Video: I'm doing second video, with drift and just driving. Photos: (Thanks rm8 for stickers ) All photos on Google+ Thanks for watching

    1940's German Car

    So after not having created any Lego cars for say.. 6 years, here's my first attempt :P It's based off of what one of those Citroen cars from WWII looks like, but I only had my head to imagine it, so it isn't very like it in the end. But i'm happy with it's looks! It's for Captain Gunther Von Stauff, a character from my films, and my future graphic novel. Again, please excuse the camera quality, I only have a phone at the moment for pictures :( Here's the rear, with a boot to boot! It opens, revealing Gunther's equipment: binoculars, a pistol, and handcuffs. It has a larger to small side profile, the front being chunkier than the smooth rear. I should probably fix this! Due to lack of door parts, I constructed some myself, and they open nicely enough. Gunther's also kitted the car with some luxurious dark tan leather seats! Don't let the 4-wide windscreen fool you, it actually fits two people inside comfortably: Another view of the two-seating. Thanks for looking! Please leave a comment and feedback on what I could do to improve! Axle
