The Bluesmobile from the original 1980 'Blues Brothers' film - MOD of a MOC (finished 12/28/22)
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Licensed"We're on a mission from God." - The Blues Brothers I built this 1974 Dodge Monaco ex-cop car (AKA The Bluesmobile from the 1980 film "The Blues Brothers") from these free Rebrickable instructions by user @brickhead_07, but modified by me to fit two figures. (among other changes) I changed the inside details from tan to light bluish gray, and I had to raise the roof by a two plates to get the figures to fit. I also modified the bull-bar on the front of the car to be stronger. Sadly the Blues Brothers can't sit side by side, but the can fit one per row due to how the sides are built. Of course, what use is the Bluesmobile without a couple of Soul Men sitting inside? Now that I've covered the car and figures, Jake and Elwood have something to say in closing: "It's 106 miles to Chicago. We've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.... HIT IT! EDIT 12/28/22: real life photos added
MOC: Emergency Vehicle of the Year (former Police Interceptor of the Year)
ER0L posted a topic in LEGO Town[Edit] List of annual Police Interceptors, now Emergency Vehicles 2011 see https://www.flickr.c...157628467098541 2012 see https://www.flickr.c...157629998167606 2013 see http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=80154 2014 this thread 2015 this thread 2016 this thread 2017 this thread 2018 this thread 2019 this thread [/edit] Hi all, a little late this year, but here it is, the Police Interceptor 2014: It was quite obvious that the Police Interceptor of the year 2014 would have to be an LCS vehicle. Furthermore, since the future town will be illuminated I was wondering if at least some of the vehicles can be lightenend, too - it would look quite awkward if cars without lights were cruising the town at night. It proved to be possible without any foreign parts - via a combination of 9 Volt and PowerFunctions stuff. Functions: self-steering front axle emergency lights (9 V) siren (9 V) headlights (PF) backlights (PF) 100% Lego. The car weighs over 200 grams (battery included) but is an excellent mover on the LCS. Credits: derjoe whose "brick & tile" car building style proved to be most appropriate when dealing with lighting Brucewaynelego-Toyshansolo who introduced me into the "9 Volt world". Rear: From below: Hopefully the PI 2014 will be the first of a series of illuminated "night" cars like ambulances, fire engines or stretch limos. Some more pics on my Flickr. Thanks for looking! In action on the LCS layout:
MOC: Police Interceptor 2013 (7w)
ER0L posted a topic in LEGO TownHi all, at the end of 2011 there was the first Police Interceptor, and there was a second one in 2012, which was derived from the Tumbler. Now I thought it might be a nice tradition to build one Police Interceptor each year. The PI 2013 is derived from the Chevy Impala, see http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=78902: It fits 2 cops (with caps) at the front and one suspect at the rear. At first I thought the new cop caps wouldn't fit, but then I modified the roof a little and now they fit, although the cops do not sit fully straight, but for me it's okay: Here you can see it in action. The street needs some traffic stuff, and I'd rather have brickbuilt motorbikes, but well ... Thanks for looking, c&c welcome as usual.
