  1. Since the 42125 Ferrari set has blades... The features are: - Rotating propellers - Collective pitch control - Folding blades Video: More photos: Rebrickable page: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-68779/paave/helicopter/#details
  2. Travel back 90 years in the past and rebuild your LEGO Technic 42125 Ferrari 488 GTE into this replica of 1931 Hot Rod FORD Model A. All required parts comes in the set 42125 and no additional or spare sparts are needed. If you own the Ferrari 488 GTE, you can completely build this alternate Hot Rod with no restriction. This model uses 1329 parts of the set, which are 79.3% of the parts of the Ferrari 488 GTE. Follow this link to show all pictures, renderings, 360° animation and the story about the design process of this MOC. You can find this model with instructions here on rebrickable. Features & Functions independent suspension in front and back steering with knob (in the back) engine with 8 cylinders, driven through diff by the real axle openable doors openable tailgate with lock to locate the trunk box to transport usefull things that fits inside the trunk overnight bag that fits inside the trunk lifting jack to lift up the car 41cm x 23cm x 15cm (with closed doors) Here are some impressions of the model: Box and overnight bag The model comes with a transporting box and an overnight bag. Both fits inside the trunk very vell. Lifting jack Luckily there are enough parts left over to build a cool lifting jack with locking function. You can lift up the entire car and it stays in position. Version Cabriolet The model and building instructions are designed to make a Cabrio as well. Therefore, the roof is detachable easily for a quick summer drive. Scale, Sticker & Stability The Hot Rod fits in scale, vintage style and playability with my Vintage Custom Pickup - alternate build of 42111. I have never tried this model with stickers, but of course it is buildable and could look more "racing-ish". I am excited to see the first user photo of this model with stickers applied. Some people report about problems with the stability of the Ferrari 488 GTE - be sure, this Hot Rod is designed to be solid as a rock. What makes this model special The wheels are mounted in opposite direction, which is not really common, but looks way better on this model. Unfortunately this way the rims does not fit the wheel hubs. As a reason, this model can not use the wheel hubs for mounting the wheels, but uses two of the rear hubs as the headlights. If you have already connected the two parts of the wheel hubs (the light bluish with the dark bluish one), be careful separating them. Because the model can not use the front wheel hubs, these hubs are custom brick built in a clever way and works perfect. The real car Of course this Hot Rod FORD Model A is based on the real car. Here are some pictures of the 1931 original model: Instruction You get a premium high quality PDF-instruction with 412 building steps on 259 pages with clear images. Yes, this is a 18+ set, but the instruction is easy to follow. You can get the instructions for 9.90 EUR on rebrickable. Here are some example pages of the instruction: Have fun with this model. I wish you happy building and promise an enjoyable building experience, as well cool playing and displaying. Thanks for the attention.
  3. Hi! It's time to upgrade one more shelf model (the previous one was the Batmobile https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/180543-mod-motorized-batmobile-76139/&tab=comments#comment-3302360). Ferrari 42125 has a lot of free space, so I've inserted four buggy-motors and a few BuWizz receivers. The chassis is very simple, I've removed suspension, V8, driver seat and steering wheel :) And the bodywork is the same as in the original LEGO set. Here is the result: Thanks for watching :)
  4. The car definitely needs a topic like this to look more like the real thing and make it better overall. Here are some ideas: lower the car, fill all holes in the chassis and the bodywork, flip the small panels on top of the the doors around, get rid of all visible blue pins and coloured axles, different wheels, improve the interior by filling all gaps, make the side skirts out of some technic beams like on the 42096 instead of these stupid rotor blades, different steering wheel, ......
  5. Hello together, what is going on in this year´s supercar battle?? It seems to get quite intense and I really enjoy it to see so many posting outstanding MOCs here with a clearly visible improving standard requirements put on supercars. So let me give you some more: the LaFerrari. Not all people like Ferrari, some prefer non- PF supercars and some are tired of red supercars at all. But honestly - I don´t care ;-). Hopefully the Lambo fraction will like it anyway too;-). I think everyone knows the real car, if not – visit the homepage, so I don´t need to describe it. Its concept is different, innovative and unusual as my MOC was designed to be as well. The project started about 1 year ago. After the LaFerrari´s appearance at the Geneva Motor Show this mind blowing car was my next one to recreate. Not in 1 day of course. The goals for the final product were set high from the beginning. The main objectives were: - increase speed using 2 XL motors + 2 additional L motors, similar to the 2. engine in the real car - best possible functionality with full range PF equipment - “gapless” bodywork concept - a fair tribute to the real car by keeping a strict scale The resulting facts: – 1:10 scale; L62 x W30 x H15 studs (49 x 24,5 x 12 cm); 1-1,5 stud ground clearance – weight: 2,5 kg – parts amount: 2.000 + (including 52 Technic panels) – independent wheel suspension – RWD with 2 XL motors + 2 L motors – servo steering coupled to working steering wheel + working rear spoiler + rear diffusor winglets – remotely openable wing doors driven by 1 M motor – manual door selector (screenwiper) – self engeneered working 12 cylinder fake engine – flash lights mode - pole reverser coupled to engine – separate manual coupling for engine & pole reverser – manually openable rear hood – 6 pairs LED lights engaging by 2 different functions & circuits – control by 2 sets control units & IR V2 receivers – powered by 2 LiPo batteries with easy charge access The car is to 97% finished now and has some flaws, so another year left to finish it ;-). But this weekend I will try to make a YT video of it as it is to show the functions. There is also a small LDD file for the drivertrain available on my brickshelf account (folder not public today). I won´t make instructions for the car, maybe only complete the LDD for the chassis and the functions only. Enjoy! brunojj1
  6. This is my alternate model for the 42125 Ferrari 488 set - Ferrari F12 Berlinetta Scale: 1:10 Parts: 1181 Size: 45L, 20W, 12H, cm Weight 988g - Independent suspension - Working steering wheel - Fake engine - Opening doors with limiters - Opening front part of the bonnet You can find the building instruction on Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-66207/paave/ferrari-f12-berlinetta/#details
  7. Hello everyone! Today I'd like to show you the model that I've been working on for more than two years, it's my first MOC in this scale that is actually close to being finished. It was rebuild from scratch dozen times and still requires bodywork. The MOC is LaFerrari in 1:8 scale: Origially I had a lot of ideas and great ambitions, but over time I realized that I just don't have enough skill to make everything I wanted. So current version has following features: independent suspension; 2 L motors for driving; Servo motor for steering; working steering wheel; 8 speed sequential gearbox driven by M motor; spacious interior with low seats positioning; powering with standard LEGO PF. Proportions: width - 29 studs; height - 15-16 studs; length - about 70 studs, don't know yet. Originally I wanted to use bigger wheels but then I stopped on 68.8. The thing is that front section of the car are too low so there won't be any place for arches with bigger wheels. Battery box is located in front of the car because everything behind seats is one huge gearbox. It just lays on its own weight and will be covered on the top with something black. This way you won't see most of gray and light gray parts through the bonnet. Distance between seats is only 3 studs and every seat is 7 studs wide. There's no free space between them - only a few hidden cables there. This is how it looks without seats: Top and bottom views: The whole core of the car is basically done. It's pretty sturdy and doesn't bend when you hold it. In current state it has about 1600 pieces. The most challenging part of the build at this point is a gearbox. It had to be very compact because car is so low. In this LDD file you can investigate all gears: https://bricksafe.com/files/ibessonov/wip-moc-laferrari-technic-2018---1/8 speed gearbox.lxf Here are some renders of gearbox without stepper. Green axles are input from motors. There are 3 clutches here and they give 8 unique combinations of their engagement. L motors are slowed down significantly. This is because they are not powerful enough to make this car fast. Here's a stepper mechanism that I used to move all 3 clutches: Green things should be connected with white rubber bands, they hold axles in fixed 90-degrees positions. There's a strong resemblance with 42056 Porshe's gearbox here, I know it. That model helped a lot with the inspiration. My plan is to finish bodywork but it's the hardest thing for me. This is the exact reason why I'm creating this topic - to get help/critique while I'm finishing the model. LaFerrari has quite complex shape and I should have chosen something more simple for my first MOC. But I already spent way too much time so I have to finally finish it. Leave your thoughts here, I'm very curious of what you might say. Thank you!

    [MOC] Ferrari 308 GTSi

    Hi, I'd like to present to you my latest MOC, the Ferrari 308 GTSi: 4 wheel independent suspension with anti-roll bars (the yellow parts in the picture below:) Front suspension with realistic setup (kingpin inclination, Ackermann, caster) Pop-up headlights (operated with the lever in the dashboard) 3+R gearbox (with shifter in center console) Detailed V8 engine Opening doors Opening trunk Opening hood (with button in the dashboard) Adjustable chairs (forward/backward + tilting backrest) Removable rooftop I build this car in commision with an exclusivity agreement. So there will be no building instructions available for this model. If you are interested in commisioning a model yourself please send me a message or an email: jjottens (at) onsmail.nl (replace the (at) with @) Comments and questions are most welcome as usual. More pictures can be found on my Flickr page. Leg godt, Jeroen Ottens
  9. Hello Magnum, Ferrari and Speed Champions fans, this targa topped 1984 Ferrari 308GTSi Quattrovalvole (pictures 1 and 6) was made famous by the television series Magnum, p.i. in which the series' lead, Thomas Magnum (Tom Selleck) drove the car around Oahu for eight seasons while on his investigations, from 1980 to 1988. Several 308 GTS cars were used, a new one for each season, most being auctioned off after filming and all with the license plate ROBIN 1. The berlinetta version of this model is called Ferrari 308GTB Quattrovalvole (pictures 2-5 and 7-8). The design inspiration of this model came from a Ferrari 308 Matchbox which I received as a child. Building instructions are available on the following links: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-64110/_TLG_/magnum-pi-ferrari-308-gts-gtb-quattrovalvole/#details or https://www.mocsmarket.com/lego-mocs/instructions-moc-magnum-p-i-ferrari-308-gts-gtb-quattrovalvole/ They are a studless builds in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a sleek models which are as accurate as possible in this small scale. Only two stickers are used per model: the rectangular Ferrari logo, and the vehicle registration plate, to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds. My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. The models contain lots of details: for example the emblematic air vents on the hood (black on GTS and red on GTB), the front bumper with the turn signal lights, the tilted front grill, the rear three quarter window with black cover, the turn signal lights on the front side, the black stripe on the sides, the side-view mirrors, the tiltable seats etc.. Maybe the most challenging one was the iconic rear side with the vehicle registration plate, here there is a half stud offset. I tried to fill every unecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for two minifigures. I suggest to use small hairs. Without the seats and the two interior tan tiles minifigures with bigger hairs can be used too if they are leaned back.

  10. 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. Hakosuka and McLaren instructions are available at Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/users/prototyp/mocs/ 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.
  11. The LaFerrari represents Ferrari’s most ambitious project yet to push the boundaries of technology on a road car. Only 499 units were produced, and each cost more than 1 million US dollars since its release back in 2013. My replica had to be as authentic as possible to the real masterpiece when it comes to both functionality and aesthetics. Therefore I chose for the classis manual chassis rather than a remote controlled version instead. Off coarse I used Sariel’s model scaler to get all proportions right Specifications: -Length: 53 Studs (42 cm); Width 21 Studs (17 cm); height: 12.5 Studs (9.5 cm) -Weight: 1100 g -Parts count: 1566 pcs Features: -RWD -Front and rear independent suspension -Working fake mini V12 engine (by crowkillers) -Steering with HOG control and positive Caster angle -Working diffuser flaps which deploy when steered (Brunojj1’s idea) -Modular bodywork (easily detachable to reveal chassis) -Openable butterfly doors with HOG control -Openable engine bay with knee joint mechanism Considering it’s scale, the parameters I wanted to include were not easy to achieve at all, resulting in many headaches throughout the design process. The doors are a perfect example: their opening movement had as realistic as possible whilst not interfering with any of the other bodywork or front wheels, as they are part of the fender. When fully opened, the doors also needed to lock into place and they had to be operated using HOGs. The engine bay was a nightmare to design too. Very complicated curves had to be replicated with limited space for connectors to put the panels at the right angles. It Interfering with the chassis was a big bottleneck as well. I am quite satisfied with the result of my dream hypercar replication, therefore I took the opportunity to make high quality renders building instructions using Stud.io. Building instructions and parts list are available here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-29075/T-Lego/ferrari-laferrari/#admin More pictures at my bricksafe: https://bricksafe.com/pages/T_Antonie/ferrari-laferrari Constructive critics, feedback and questions are as always appreciated!

    [MOC] Ferrari Testarossa

    Hello Ferrari and Speed Champions fans, Ferrari Testarossa is a legendary supercar of 1980s. It is a two-door coupé from 1986 and it is the red version of the car from the TV series Miami Vice as the used Lego windscreen is not available with white decoration. Almost 10,000 Testarossas, 512 TRs, and F512 Ms were produced, making it one of the most-produced Ferrari models, despite its high price and exotic design. Building instructions are available on the following links: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-57875/_TLG_/ferrari-testarossa/ https://www.mocsmarket.com/lego-mocs/lego-instructions-ferrari-testarossa/ It is a studless build in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I wanted to create a sleek model which is as accurate as possible in this small scale. I minimized the use of stickers to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds. (Third picture shows the model without any stickers.) My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. The model contains lots of details: for example the emblematic side intakes with the bottom black stripe, the turn signal lights on the sides, the side-view mirrors, the front grill with the head lights, the iconic rear side with the vehicle registration plate. Maybe the most challenging one was the interior where the seat assemblies hold side panels too. I tried to fill every unecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for two minifigures. I suggest to use small hairs. Without the seats minifigures with bigger hairs can be used too if they are leaned back.

    [MOC] Ferrari Testarossa

    Hello everyone, I am really glad to present you my second MOC, a replica of the Ferrari Testarossa. This model is RC and has the following features: Rear wheel drive powered by a buggy-motor (this makes the car really fast (top speed around 11 - 12 kph (in ludicrous Mode))) Steering powered by a Servomotor Manual pop-up headlights Open able doors and detailed interior and exterior The car is powered by a Buwizz (I choose it, because Buwizz gives the buggy-motor enough power). Dimensions: length: 39 cm / width:15,5 cm / height: 10 cm / weight: 1,1 kg The door was one of the hardest parts to create, but then I saw Jeroen Ottens version of the Testarossa and how he created the doors. His version of the doors inspired me, when I decided to choose the Ninjago blades for the doors. So a really recommend you to take a look at his beautiful Testarossa version too https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/163130-moc-ferrari-testarossa/ With open pop-up headlights You can find more Pictures at: https://bricksafe.com/pages/Lukes_Brick_Studio/ferrari-testarossa You can find the instructions at: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-60087/Lukes_Brick_Studio/ferrari-testarossa/#details (the instructions cost 10 €) Comments, suggestions and questions are always appreciated. I wish you all merry Christmas :) See you.

  17. Hi all, As a big formula one and LEGO fan my dream is to build the formula one grid out of lego. The 2016 grid was the easiest because I had only to modify the speed champions f1 sets. This year I restarted the project, and I built 4 cars in 4 days. I am positively surprised about I didn't need to buy any piece for the Racing Point. I have only 1 pic at the moment but when possible I am posting others. Pls tell me what you think.
  18. This is my first try at making a tread and posting pictures, so I hope I do it right. It all started with me making a very oldschool 2015 Sauber car out of ancient lego I found in a tray in the basement. 20190310_161317 by Martin Hansen, on Flickr Later lego started making real versions of F1 cars and I remade my 2015 Sauber. 20190310_161340 by Martin Hansen, on Flickr 20190310_161434 by Martin Hansen, on Flickr Then during the 2018 season I started making all of the teams cars and I finally finished the project, right in time for the 2019 season to begin next week The cars were made with parts available to me and might not be the perfect match, but they are good enough for me. All 10 cars 20190310_161801 by Martin Hansen, on Flickr Mecedes. I made some changes mainly removing some green, which I feel are not "of the right shade" url=https://flic.kr/p/24vFQut][/url]20190310_161821 by Martin Hansen, on Flickr 20190310_161842 by Martin Hansen, on Flickr Ferrari.

I hope you will enjoy them.
  19. Hello I would like to share my first MOC Ferrari F1 SF90 in 1:8 scale. Making the MOC my main goal was display model so I decided to make it look as close as possible using all official Lego parts to real F1 car. But I wanted to have it all the basic features F1 car should have which are: - front and rear suspension - fake v6 engine (created by SuperKoala ) - removable front wing (I started all build from this element actually) - removable engine cover, - removable headrest system (this was added at the very end I didn't thought about this at all but it just came up naturally) - drs - steering The dimensions of the model : Dimensions 70 x 25 x 14 cm Weight 1,95 kg Pieces: 2186 My main donners at the very first stage were 42056 and 42000 which I already had and they had lots of elements I could use to try the concept. The first version was funny to watch as there were so many colors all over the place ;) I have used wheels and tires from 8674 as they are the best looking one and fit the best for design and don't have any labels on them (as unfortunately 8458 and 8461). The instruction has been done in Stud.io in PDF. Instruction build I also designed stickers sheet ready to print and I also will have printed version too. Hope you like it.

    [TC18] Ferrari F355

    Guess I should start building the car from the chassis. So here it is. I don't know what kind of body I want to build yet. But it should be something with an engine in the middle.

    [MOC] Ferrari 488 Pista

    Wasn't able to use the SC wheels because it would make the front too tall and also create collision between tyres and underside of the headlight area. Can't build in red too as the 36841 bracket doesn't exist in red yet. Due to the lockdown I ran short of cut slope pcs to build accurate side air intakes, and the rear diffuser needs some improvement that hopefully can happen once it's buildable in red. Thanks for viewing :) KMPMOCS
  22. I wanted to include full independent suspension, with positive caster and MacPherson strut in the front and rear trailing arms, a working front-mid placed 90° v8 engine, working steering wheel + HoG, convertible top, openable hood, doors and trunk. From now on I plan to do the convertible top mechanism and I consider it quite a challenge as I would like it to operate as close to the real thing (google it) and I'll keep you updated as the build progresses. I have worked on the chassis for a while now and this is what I came up with: And yes, I plan to change that background, coloured cardboard doesn't really do the trick, I promise this is the last time you'll see it.

    Ferrari 488 GTE EVO

    These are my 1:20 scale models of the Ferrari 488 GTE EVO race cars as they appeared at Le Mans in 2018. Ferrari was racing with 3 entries that year. Apart from the standard #51 and #71 cars, they also raced with car #52. Here is the video for car #52 where I also show the LEGO model that was brought to Le Mans: In the following video I break down the initial prototype and show all of the SNOT techniques within. The final models are mostly the same internally, which is why I am only featuring the breakdown in this one video: The prototype has taken approximately 3 weeks to complete, so it a bit more "finished" than the BMW M8 and Aston Martin Vantage that I will show later (they represent roughly 2 and a half week of work each) When I built this model, the reference pictures were all of the 488 GTE from last year with the extra headlights and high visibility "teeth" in the middle of the front opening. The headlights, as well as the front splitter are the only changes I have spotted on the new version and Ferrari is not saying much about what has changed to earn the "EVO" in the name of the car. Here are the dimensions the model is following: Length: 4568mm => 28,55 => 29 studs Width: 1952mm => 12 studs Height: 1213mm => 61mm Wheelbase: 2650mm => 16,56 => 17 studs And my list of changes to appear in the next prototype are: - Livery of the actual cars with white/red/gree/yellow/blue stripes and color blocks - Deletion of 4 headlights as previously mentioned - Changes in the diffuser (tan will replace the red and be used as detailing as well) - Tan for the inside of the wheel wells. - Yellow warning ring next to right rear light. - Change of rear bodywork to accommodate new livery. - Change of side panels to accommodate new livery (triangular color blocking near the barge boards). - Change in design of windscreen so it flows with the roof. - Maybe new side mirrors that are hinged on the outer side (if I can make that work). - Front hood opening right in front of the windscreen should be changed to a more curved design. - Turn around the robot arms holding the spoiler! I should also take a look at how the 1x2 tile next to the rear wheel is connected. It is not Kosher. From this top view you can better see how the sides flow into the body work. My favorite detail by far: And as usual. Please bring on all the critique you can muster. I am showing this early prototype of the car in the hope of getting as many improvements as possible before Le Mans. Thanks in advance :)
  24. Let me start with a disclaimer: this is my first ever review of a LEGO set. On the one hand, this means the review may be missing a few things you would expect from a review, most notably pictures, as I only decided to do a review after I had already built it. On the other hand, it should tell you right away that the set impressed me enough to warrant a review in the first place. Anyway, let's get right to it! PRICE According to Brickset, the RRP (recommended retail price) for a 75890 would be £12.99 / $14.99 / 14.99€. I live in Moscow, Russia, and I was able to pick it up for 1499₽ / ~$24 at an official LEGO certified store. Surprisingly, for about the same money I could get a 60256 Racing Cars or a 60242 Police Highway Arrest, though both have a noticible higher RRP on Birckset – £17.99 / $29.99 / 19.99€. You could also find a better deal, but in my case 2/3 of the price (1000₽ / ~$16) were covered by a gift card, which was a present from a friend for my birthday. PARTS The set contains 198 parts. They come in 5 bags – 3 larger unnumbered bags for the majority of the parts and 2 smaller bags each containing 2 sets of 4 wheel covers – 18978 and 29117, both in Flat Silver. As a matter of fact, I bought the F40 as a parts pack for my MOCs, and the wheel covers were what made it a must-buy – this is by far the cheapest way to get this many of them, let alone in one set. Just look at this: Other parts worth mentioning: a nice variety of brackets – 10 (6 black + 4 red) 99780 Inverted 1x2, 3 white 99781 1x2 and 2 black 99207 Inverted 2x2; 6 relatively uncommon red 33909 Modified 2 x 2 with Studs on Edge; 5 (4 + 1 spare) black 20482 Round 1 x 1 with Bar and Pin Holder; 3 (2 + 1 spare) red 1x1 plates with a Ferrari emblem printed on the side, which only appears in 2 sets – this one and the recent 76895 Ferrari F8 Tributo; 3 (2 + 1 spare) black 1x1 plates with a red edge, which is unique to this set. BUILD As I mentioned, the set was bought as a parts pack for my MOCs. My MOCs are mostly 6-wide sports cars, so I expected there to be some similarities. Nevertheless, I was really surprised with just how densely built this set was. With City sets you often have cavities left in them, but 75890 was very reminiscent of my own MOCs in terms of density. The highlights of the build are a couple of SNOT sections. The bracket pieces I mentioned earlier are used to a great effect on the front, sides and rear. Their main purpose is to create a thin black brick-built stripe going around the car, as seen on the real-life prototype: The stripe could easily be done with stickers, so it being brick-built instead is a nice touch. The part of this assembly that made me think "Oh, that's cool, I should remember that" was this: An upside-down 4070 allows to get an odd-length half-plate black strip, and the 1x1 red tile lines up perfectly with the 33909 Modified 2 x 2 with Studs on Edge pieces attached to the bottom. The unique black 1x1 plates with a red edge are used under the rear turn signals to have that black backdrop for the transparent pieces, but at the same time keep the red on the rear quarter panels consistent. Another thing I appreciated was the NPU exhaust pipe assembly. The real F40 has triple exhausts, which is recreated in the set using 2 20482 Round 1 x 1 with Bar and Pin Holder pieces with a 35480 1 x 2 Rounded Plate attached to them: From the picture above it is also quite obvious that the proportions of the LEGO rendition of the car are off – the car looks too narrow. The move to 8-wide in 2020, then, starts to seem natural. There was one part of the build, though, where I felt that the order of the steps could be switched. Personally, I would put step 38 after step 48, but its probably just me, so I wouldn't go into much detail. Anyway, the finished set looks very Ferrari-like with its bright red exterior, and the shape is quite accurate, in part due the relatively simple shape of the source material. The set includes a little play feature that allows you to switch between the F40 Competizione and a regular F40 looks. This is achieved by taking off some of the parts and replacing them with the alternatives also included in the set. The parts that are changed are: the headlights; the front cover, which is not actually attached to any studs, but is kept securely in place by the windshield; the front splitter; the rear diffuser; the rear wing the wheel covers. OVERALL THOUGHTS This was the first SC set that I actually built, and I was really impressed by it. The techniques used in the set are on par with what you can see in MOCs, so I would say that SC sets are to City vehicles what Modular Buildings are to City and Creator buildings – larger and better versions of the same thing with some advanced building techniques used throughout. Now that SC car are 8-wide, I am not sure the set would be worth buying if you have only just started collecting them and plan to get more in the future. Being 6-wide, it feels more like a toy and may end up looking a little out of place. However, if you are a) OK with the scale difference, b) willing/ready to modify the set yourself, or c) a Ferrari fan, don't hesitate and pick it up. I hope you liked the review, comments and critique are welcome as always. If you have any questions for a persons who just built this set, ask away.
