    Hoovie's Garage Ferrari F355 Spider

    I made a LEGO Speed Champions MOC of the infamous Hoovie's Garage (automotive YouTube personality) Ferrari F355 Spider, the dumbest Ferrari MOC on the internet! Hoovie owned the car from March 2018 until the following August. He lent it to his friend, Parker from the YouTube channel Vehicle Virgins, to keep in his garage for storage during Monterey Car Week. While Parker took it for a drive, the F355's stripped power steering cap leaked fluid everywhere, but before he could limp the car somewhere for it to be repaired, it burst into flames. The car features an opening bonnet with detailed engine. The bonnet can be switched with a burning bonnet along with four other pieces below the car to reenact the fateful day the F355 burnt down. The side vents' design were particularly inspired by NV Carmocs' F355 MOC. If this MOC sounds a little morbid to you, be assured that Hoovie is known for being humorous and making dumb decisions. I made this MOC as a tribute to his channel and for the sake of satire. Also, I decided to fittingly post this on April Fools Day! Instructions are available for purchase on my Rebrickable page. Stickers available for purchase on Brickstickershop.
  3. I'd like to present a new MOC of mine - Ferrari F355 Scale: 1:10 Size: 43L, 21W, 13H, cm Weight: 1429g Parts: 1410 Video: Features: - Opening doors, bonnet, trunk - Pop-up headlights - Independent suspension - Remote control with Power Functions - PF: 2L, Servo, IR, LiPo You can find the instruction on Rebrickable page:

    Rear of Ferrari

    In addition to some points in the Pagani set, the back of the Ferrari seems too massive to me. I understand that the designer apparently really wanted to make such an exhaust system, but still :) So what happened For comparison was/became How do you like? :)

    76914 Ferrari LaFerrari

    My second alternative for new ferrari set! This time a rebuilt this Ferrari... into an another Ferrari! FREE INSRUCTIONS:
  7. Link to the instructions : Here is my latest creation, a 1:10 scale replica of the iconic Ferrari F40. This project was a true labour of patience, and I am proud to say that I was able to incorporate all the functions that make a supercar and to capture the essence of the design of the F40. I already worked on the F40 and posted it almost 2 years ago (link right below). It was a cool model but I still had always that feeling that I could do better. This feeling was emphasized by the other people of this forum that worked on this Ferrari like @lnteknik or very recently @Lox Lego. So I went back to my pieces and started to work from scratch on a new iteration of this legendary car. To sum up : I changed almost everything. One of the key features of the Lego model is the functional 5+R gearbox, which allows the car to shift through its gears just like the real-life F40. This was a particularly challenging feature to implement, but it really adds to the overall playability of the Lego model. The gearbox is designed to be smooth and efficient, making it easy to shift between gears and control the fake engine’s speed. The gearbox was inspired by GrayGear from Eurobrick, here is a link to his topic : His gearbox is a 6 speed, I worked on it to implement a reverse gear. Note that I reproduced the particular patern of the F40, the R replace the 1, the 1 replace the 2 and so on. In addition to the gearbox, I also included a functional opening mechanism for the doors, front trunk, and rear engine hood. This was a challenging aspect to incorporate into the design, but I am thrilled with how well it turned out. Users can easily open and close these components, further enhancing the interactive and realistic nature of the Lego model. Those components can also be retired to reveal the chassis of the car in a modular-ish way. Attention to detail was also a top priority for me during the design process. I made sure to include accurate design elements such as the air intake on the doors and the sharp, angular lines of the car's bodywork. I also ensured that the proportions of the model were as true-to-life as possible, making it instantly recognizable as an F40 to car enthusiasts and Lego fans alike. I am also extremely pleased with how the engine and its details turned out in the model. The attention to detail and accuracy of the design truly showcases the iconic engine of this legendary car. Furthermore, I the steering mechanism can be controlled by the steering wheel or by a removable HOG, which adds to the overall control of the Lego model. The steering is designed to be responsive and smooth, allowing to easily maneuver the car in any direction. Finally, I included the iconic pop-up headlights, which can be activated using a small wheel in the dashboard. This adds a fun and interactive aspect to the model, and further enhances the overall attention to detail that went into the design. Overall, I am extremely proud of this creation, and I believe that the inclusion of these unique and functional features truly sets it apart from other Lego Technic models. The attention to detail, accurate design elements, and functional components make this model a true tribute to the iconic Ferrari F40. Link to the instructions :

    My third alternative for new ferrari set! And i made another legendary ferrari! FREE INSTRUCTIONS:
  9. Driving Ferrari's twin-turbo exotic is the closest you'll ever come to experiencing a nervous breakdown. Designed to commemorate Ferrari's 40th anniversary, the F40 is highly revered among gearheads. Ferrari Outdoors - when the sun ☀️ rises by lachlan cameron, on Flickr And gears ⚙️ it has… this iconic car is true to the original, a 5 speed gearbox + reverse, HOG (manual) steering with working steering wheel, opening doors, hood and engine cover, pop up headlights, opening doors, the classic black stripe and a realistic interior. The framework is solid, the roof can be lifted from the B pillars. Ferrari F40 by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Using the new Daytona rims, this car looks like a track ready machine. Very cool to be building with new panels and parts, and to understand the design, not your average supercar shaping! Enjoy these white room shots of the #F40 in technic form and scroll thru the photos for all the details!

  10. Hi folks, I'm happy to share my latest creation to complete my 2022-lineup. With this model, the craziest journey is now over that I've ever had for an alternate build. This replica of a Ferrari F40 is purely built from Lego set 42143 Ferrari Daytona SP3 as an alternate model (B-model). Having the set 42143, all required parts will be donated and no additional parts are needed to build this F40. The model uses 23 spare parts from Daytona's large spares inventory, resulting in 3603 total parts for this MoC with 95% Daytona parts used. More info and instructions can be found here Functions & Features independent suspension in front and back manual steering with working steering wheel openable doors with locking system openable hood openable rear section working popup-headlights with linkage system 5+R speed transmission gearbox F40-V8-engine with moving pistons open window in bottom to view gearbox detailed interior and engine-bay modular building with separate premium PDF-files detailed design with printed parts fits all Supercars in 1:8 scale measures (all parts closed) 57cm x 26cm x 14cm Impressions Engine The V8-engine with moving pistons is directly connected through the gearbox to the rear differential. By opening and stabilizing the rear section, the engine and engine-bay can be revealed to watch inside this F40. The engine-bay is one of the most detailed part for an alternate model, with exhaust pipes completely made from the engine to the rear end. Even the crossbar from the back to the roof, that gives the real F40 more structure, has found a way into this model. The stabilizer-bar that keeps the rear section open can be stored safely under the rear without loosing them. Gearbox Welcome to my most realistic gearbox so far - the 5+R speed transmission gearbox inside the middle console of the car with a shifter layout very next to the original. For a full wheel spin, the engine fires 1.841 times in the first gear and only 0.663 times in the fifth gear. A higher selected gear results in less friction on the drivetrain and in lower moving pistons of the engine. Following is a summary of all gear ratios, measured from wheel (input) to engine shaft (output): Reverse - 1:1.767R 1. Gear - 1:1.841 2. Gear - 1:1.479 3. Gear - 1:1.104 4. Gear - 1:0.884 5. Gear - 1:0.663 Popup-headlights The model features iconic popup-headlights like the real F40 does, triggered by hand. Once the hood is open, the mechanism can be triggered to open and close the lights. This linkage mechanism is secured with a rubber band, holding the lights strong and in place. The following animation shows exactly how the popup-headlights works. Details The model uses most of the printed parts from its 42143 donor set, giving it the final touch and the instantly recognizable Ferrari brand. Doors of this F40 are implemented with a locking-mechanism. The doors snaps in automatically and stays in closed position. More features to mention are the iconic black stripes around the car, the air-intakes, the slightly angled shapes, the detailed interior with printed dashboard and the front lights, that are very detailed under the trans-clear parts. Instructions & building process The premium instructions for this model comes in 5 separate PDF-files with high quality images and building steps that are very close to the original Technic-instructions. The build can be quite challenging for inexperienced builders, but is for a 18+ set of course a satisfying experience for more practiced adults. Building this F40 starts on the 368 pages long main PDF with the ingenious 5+R speed transmission gearbox and the front axle to complete the front section of the chassis. The build continues with the second PDF and 136 pages later, the rear section is added to the front. After the marriage process with rear and front section, more parts are added to the chassis to make a solid structure, where every function works perfect at this point of the build. Iconic lines are more and more represented to give this model a real F40 experience. The third PDF takes over to complete the openable rear on 170 pages and added to the build. Some more details are added and the roof and windshield will be finished, getting closer to a real looking F40. On the fourth PDF, both doors are built and attached to the car 78 pages later. The F40 continues with the fifth and last PDF to build the hood on 185 pages with the triggering mechanism for the popup-headlights and then attached to the model. After 937 pages in total, the F40 alternate build is finished in all its glory. Comparison Final note With 95% Daytona parts used, this model pushes the limit of what is possible with a given inventory, offering builders a relative easy way to create this F40, where only the 42143 donor set is needed providing all the parts. I'm happy that I've finally managed the biggest brainfuck that I've ever had in my head with this model, resulting in the biggest model I've ever made and in one of the biggest alternate builds in history. Thanks to Uwe Wabra, my favourite designer, who makes this possible just with the Daytona. With several functions and authentic design-features very close to the original one, this model is not only a piece to display. More info and instructions can be found here Have fun with this Ferrari F40 alternate build.
  11. 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, ......

    [MOC] Ferrari Daytona SP3

    Hello Ferrari and Speed Champions fans, The Ferrari Daytona SP3 is a limited production mid-engine sports car produced by Italian automobile manufacturer Ferrari, unveiled on 20 November 2021 for the 2023 model year. The design references to 1960s race cars, it is a modernization of the 330 P4, with the body work consisting distinguished low driver's seating position, raised front and rear wheel arches, and the Targa top design. Building instructions are available on the following links: 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 prefer the brick built solutions to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, and therefore only Ferrari logo and simple light gray head lights stickers are used. 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 front and hood grilles, the side and rear intakes, the side view mirrors etc... Maybe the most challenging one was the brick built narrow black and red lines on the front. I tried to fill every unnecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. On the pictures the red grills on the front are connected only by half studs. However, if you prefer more sturdy models, then full connection is usable too, it is a bit less accurate, but looks decent too. It is a very low build, an can roll well only on flat surfaces. The model has space for two minifigures. I suggest to use helmets, or small hairs, and the upper part of the seats have to be removed in this case.

  13. Hi everyone In 2007, an intense battle was raging on F1 tracks around the world. Lewis Hamilton was having a barnstorming rookie season, battling his teammate and reigning two time world champion Fernando Alonso for the world championship. But Finnish driver Kimi Raikkonen was sneaking up on the McLaren pair, and took the lead at the last round in Brazil to win the championship. Here is my rendition of Kimi's car, the Ferrari F2007.

  15. Hello everyone! Maybe it's too early, but let it happen. What do you think of the Speed Champions series in 2022? Do you think it will disappear or continue, or will it be under a different name? Anyway, personally, I think they will stay with us for a long time (after all, they have made specially new wheels for 2021). It seems to me that there is a good chance to see in 2022 in the SC series such cars: - BMW M8 (maybe GTE) - Pagani Zonda or Huayra - Ferrari - some F1 car - due to Toyota license can Toyota gr010 (hypercar) - maybe some cars from the DTM or VASC series Post comments about what you think.
  16. 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 Building instructions and parts list are available here: More pictures at my bricksafe: Constructive critics, feedback and questions are as always appreciated! Enjoy your day
  17. My next alternate model of 42125: Ferrari Enzo Features: - Opening doors, bonnet, trunk - Independent suspension - Fake engine - Working steering wheel Video: There's much influence of the 8653 set, which is my favorite one. So it's a kind of modern representation I made Rebrickable page:

    [MOC] Ferrari F40

    Hello Ferrari and Speed Champions fans, the Ferrari F40 (tipo F120) is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive sports car engineered by Nicola Materazzi with styling by Pininfarina. It was built from 1987 to 1992, with the LM and GTE race car versions continuing production until 1994 and 1996 respectively. As the successor to the 288 GTO (also engineered by Materazzi), it was designed to celebrate Ferrari's 40th anniversary and was the last Ferrari automobile personally approved by Enzo Ferrari. At the time it was Ferrari's fastest, most powerful, and most expensive car for sale. Building instructions are available on the following links: 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 prefer the brick built solutions to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, and therefore only Ferrari logo stickers are used. (If you preferred a better shaping instead of a real rear side grill, then 2pcs of parts 61409 could replaced by 2pcs of tiles and some additional stickers, see the picture 3.) 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 front, hood , side and rear intakes, the narrow black line on the front and sides, the front turn signals, the side view mirrors etc... Maybe the most challenging one was the iconic rear side with the vehicle registration plate and the rear spoiler, here there is a half stud offset. I tried to fill every unnecessary gaps and therefore some tricky build techniques are used. The model has space for one minifigure. I suggest to use small or middle sized hair.

    [MOC] The Red Italian

    Hi! Maybe you expect a Ferrari... Well, close enough My entry for the Festival of Mundanity, hosted by BrickNerd and The Lego Car Blog. Fiat Multipla is probably one of the most atrocious cars ever made, It is ugly and mundane at the same time. I made it in 7wide'ish and actually had fun building it. Hope you don´t like it!

  21. I’m not a “car guy” by any stretch of the imagination. I couldn’t even tell you what type of engine my own car has. However, I like cool-looking sports cars as much as anyone and bought a fair amount of LEGO Racers sets back in the day. And while I haven’t bought any sets from Racers’ spiritual successor, Speed Champions, I’ve had my eye on some of the sets for a while. Each wave seems to be getting better and better, and this latest batch of sets looks especially good, so I was excited to get the opportunity to review the entire wave! So, fasten your seatbelts and join me as I do a full inspection of these race cars, starting with… Set Number: 76906 Name: 1970 Ferrari 512 M Theme: Speed Champions Year of Release: 2022 Ages: 8+ Pieces: 291 Price: $19.99 / 19.99€ Online Shop description: The Box TLG is kicking off the March 2022 wave with a classic from 1970, the Ferrari 512, and not just any version of it, but the modified one (hence the “M”) driven by Jacky Ickx when he won the Kyalami 9 hours race. The box features the same design as the Speed Champions boxes from the previous two years with the theme’s logo on a checkered flag in the upper left corner and the car manufacturer’s logo in the upper right. I’m glad they switched back to this type of background from that boring gray stripe they were using from 2018 to 2019. The flag fades nicely into the background of the box art which shows the 512 racing ahead of two other cars on a racetrack. What’s odd is that it seems to be nighttime in this scene. I don’t know during which 9 hours the Kyalami race took place, but I’m pretty sure it wasn’t at night. Correct me if I’m wrong in the comments. However, they correct this potential inaccuracy on the back of the box where it shows the classic racecar driving down the track during daylight, showing off the rear of the vehicle. It also shows a close up of the cabin and a reference picture of the real car along with another Ferrari logo. The top of the box features a three-quarter view of the car, some copyright info, and one of the shiny golden wheels for scale reference, while the bottom has the usual choking hazard warnings and other info. The same image of the set is shown on one of the sides of the box along with a holographic sticker of authenticity from Ferrari. The other side only has an ad for the Lego Life app. Contents Inside the box there are two numbered bags, a sticker sheet, and one instruction booklet. Instructions This year, Lego is making the instructions for Speed Champions sets available in the Lego Instructions app. They’ve had these interactive instructions for a while now for Lego City, but I guess they have debugged it enough now that they feel comfortable branching out into other themes. And they want you to know about it. Not only does every set list this as one of the features of the set, but they also have a full two-page ad for the app at the beginning of the booklet which shows the different options for instructions using a City ice cream truck as an example. Unfortunately, the instructions for these sets have not been added to the app yet as of this writing, so I can’t test them out for you, but if they are like all the other 3D instruction in the app, they will be a nice alternative to the physical instructions, especially for visually impaired people, as they allow you to zoom in rotate around the model, although the rotating doesn’t always work the way you want. Oh well, I prefer physical instructions anyway. The instructions are easy to read, and like all 2022 sets (AFAIK) feature a progress bar that runs along the bottom and shows you how far along you are in the build. Unlike in the City sets, the progress marker is not a minifig from the set, but a generic dot. However, they still managed to give the bar a unique flavor by making it gray to match the Speed Champions branding. There is an explosion of stars at the end of the instructions for the minifig and the car. Notable Parts There are only a handful of notable parts in this set, but they are good ones. There are three types of parts that are printed in this set: the windshield, a 1x2 tile in trans-black that has the top covered In red, and the 1x1 plate with a tiny Ferrari logo on the side which has shown up in a few other Ferrari sets before. There are six of these plates in the set, even though only two of them are visible in the finished model, so you could switch out the other four with unprinted ones from your collection and use them in your MOCs. This set also comes with the highly anticipated 1x5 plate that debuted last year and shows up in red for the first time here, along with the preexisting black version! The 1x2 plate with vertical clip also comes in red for the first time, and the new 1x2 inverted arch only appears for the second time in red after debuting in the Fender Stratocaster. This set comes with the old style of wheels with the newer dotted brake rotor lines which comes in pearl gold for the first time (although its predecessor with the solid lines did appear in 3 sets in that color). Minifigs This set comes with one minifig to drive this historic vehicle and you’d think that it would be a Lego version of Jacky Ickx considering that this is his car, but if you think that, you will be disappointed. Sadly, Speed Champions sets always come with super-generic drivers which is one of the reasons why I miss Lego Racers. As awkward as their faces may have looked, it was great to get minifigs of real racecar drivers like Michael Schumacher with their respective cars back in the day. So, instead of Jacky, we get this guy with tousled brown hair and a generic smirking face. It doesn’t even come with a wrench accessory like some Speed Champions drivers do. Not only is the face boring, but also misprinted in this copy of the set. The white dots in the eyes are too high, making it look like the minifig is wearing white eye liner. No judgement if the fig likes it that way, but I don’t think it’s intentional. Fortunately, it comes with a great, brand-new Ferrari racing suit that does match Jacky’s to make up for the disappointing head a bit. It’s nicely detailed with a Ferrari logo, zippers, and lines that continue down to the legs and onto the fig’s back. The Build Since I had never built a Speed Champions set before and the only cars I have built in recent years are the crappy ones that are included as an afterthought in Super Heroes sets, I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised by some of the building techniques. It’s interesting how they attached the hinges for the wedge plates behind the cabin and more the headlights and some of the side parts are attached by sticking them onto little bars. The unique shape of the mudguards on the rear wheels is achieved by building sections with the 1x2 inverted arches and clipping them onto the side of the car upside down in order to un-invert them. It would have been nice if they had just made a non-inverted version of this piece, but it’s a clever workaround that works pretty well. Spare Parts There are only a few little bits left over after the build including one of the printed 1x1 Ferrari plates. There is actually one more round tile in trans-orange which isn’t pictured here as it was camera-shy and rolled away before I took the picture. The Complete Set Here is the finished car in all it’s boxy-yet-aerodynamic glory! Aside from the six studs on the wedge plates behind the cabin, there are no exposed studs on the model, making it look nice and smooth. The color scheme and shape of it remind me of the A-Wing. I wonder if Ralph McQuarrie was inspired by this car for the design of that ship? Compared to the real thing, it looks pretty spot-on. The Lego version is only missing the rearview mirror (?) on top and some decals, especially around the back, but I’m not gonna complain about not having to apply more stickers. I like that the headlights are brick-built on this model rather than stickered or printed on like on most Speed Champions cars, although the use of trans-black parts makes them look too dark in my opinion. I think trans-clear would have looked better. It’s interesting how they designed the headlights so that they go all the way to the edge of the car by capping them off on the sides with the translucent tiles with the red printing on top. Unfortunately, as is always the case when they try to print on dark parts, the red color on the print appears darker than that of the red parts around it, and there is a visible dark outline around the print, making the tiles look out of place. It’s a clever idea, but it doesn’t work very well. Otherwise, the nose of the car looks great as they recreated the wedge shape of it excellently by building the entire nose section at an angle. In fact, the entire profile view of the car looks great. Spoiler alert! The two little spoilers at the back of the car which on the real vehicle are only attached at the corners are held on by trans-clear round plates with handle which is a clever solution. What I don’t like, however, is that the back of the driver’s cabin is almost completely open. I’m not sure how they could have fixed this, but it’s not ideal. I like how they executed the air channels on the sides of the car that go down toward the rear wheels, under the hull, and out towards the spoilers. The windshield can be lifted up towards the front, so you can seat the driver inside without having to completely take it off like you do on most Speed Champions cars. This is not how it works on the real 512, but it’s a neat play feature all the same. The interior features a stickered double cheese slope with gauges which adds a welcome bit of detail. We have actually gotten this type of racecar before. Set 75876 included the Ferrari 512’s main competitor, the Porsche 917. Even though the Porsche set came out back when the Speed Champions cars were 6 studs wide and looks much inferior to this set, I think the Ferrari would look good next to the 917K. (Picture courtesy of Brickset) Ratings Design: 8/10 A slick looking vehicle that looks very accurate with only minor design flaws. Build: 8/10 An enjoyable build with several unusual SNOT techniques and not too many stickers. Playability: 6/10 The car is fun to zoom around and the windshield can be lifted up. Figures: 7/10 An exclusive, detailed body is bogged down by an inaccurate, generic, and misprinted head. Parts: 7/10 A few new recolors of fairly new molds and some printed parts. Not too bad! Price: 10/10 At 291 pieces for just 20 bucks, this is easily one of the best values for a Speed Champions set! Overall: 8/10 The March 2022 wave starts out strong with this accurate recreation of a classic LeMans racecar. It’s relatively challenging to build, fun to play with, and it looks good on display. The only things that detract from it are the generic minifig head and some printing quality issues. At such a good value, I can definitely recommend it. Thanks for reading and thanks to TLG for sending me this set for review. What do you think of the set? I’d be curious to hear from Speed Champions fans and car aficionados, so let me know in the comments and in the poll above. The set will release on March 1, 2022: In my next Speed Champions review, we will take a look at a type of car that has never been seen in LEGO before! Until then, may the downforce be with you.
  22. Ferrari F40The most iconic supercar from the edgy eighties. The last hardcore beast signed off on by Enzo. The absolutely definitive Ferrari. The legendFunctions- Working steering wheel- 5+R dogleg gearbox- Fake V8 working engine- Independent double wishbone suspension at all 4 wheels- Openable doors, front and rear clamshell- Manually operated pop-up headlights Design and InspirationThis creation is inspired by the fantastic work of @jorgeopesi from 7-8 years ago, reborn with contemporary Lego Technic pieces. I kept the gear shift mechanism of the original, and changed the gearbox to a modified version of @Rudivdk's 5+R manual transmission. Some exterior solutions also take reference from jorge's version, but everything else from steering, suspension setup to engine, body panels etc are my own designs. It's not a mod by any means, but hopefully a worthy remake. With the evolution of LEGO parts palette over the years, I have also managed to add more details to the model, such as: - cooling slots under the rear spoiler - exhaust manifold and a see-through rear grille - detailed interior and more representative racing bucket seats - detailed engine bay with all the bells and whistles (intercoolers, airboxes, etc) - as well as, the iconic line that runs across the entire car - also worth mentioning is the 3-piece rod hidden in the rear bumper that supports the rear clamshell when it's opened. Construction The car was originally built with parts from set 8145, 8070, and additional parts from my parts bin. However, 2x 42125 is also a great base, which provides 70% of the parts. The missing 30% is listed here. When making instructions, I have also tried to substitute expensive parts such as Red 14L soft axles, or Red 1x6 thin liftarms with more affordable solutions. The wheels used in the instruction are also from set 42125 to save cost, but if you want to use standard technic 56mm D wheels - part 15038, just need to use 7L liftarms instead of 6L as the rear wishbones. These wheels will stick out a bit and provide a slight rake, giving the car a more aggressive look. The wheels used in photos are third party/non-lego parts. They are great (provide a good offset between the front and rear wheel covers, making the rear wheels look "deeper") but perhaps not for the purists. You can send me a private message if you want to know where I get those wheels from, but note that I'm in no way affiliated with the seller. Neither can I guarantee the quality of the product nor seller's trustworthiness, so tread at your own risk. Instruction hereThe instructions booklet is 666-page long and contains 828 steps (talk about "Manifest" if you watch that show :D). You will find 11 modules and 10 assembly stages in between to combine the modules to form the final model. You can follow the instructions in the chronological order of the pages, or skip around, build all the modules first (in whichever order you like) and then follow the assembly steps, just like how real cars are built in the factory. Either way should bring you a enjoyable building experience. Thank you for reading this far. I hope you enjoy the write-up. Look forward to hearing your thoughts More pics here (bricksafe) Sneak peeks of my upcoming creations
  23. TLDR: super-detailed fully-modular Creator-scale build of epic early-90s Ferrari race-car version of street car version of a race car. The F40 LM is the race car version of what was already mostly a race car. Nineteen competition-ready F40's were built by Chinetti Michelotto for Ferrari; lighter, lower, more powerful and full of racing-specific tweaks. My 10248 "Super-Mod" builds one of these legendary LMs inside the lines of TLG's design. The kit's brilliant overall shaping and clever build solutions provide a framework for revised proportions and deeper detailing. Nearly every step of the build is altered and most assemblies have been heavily redesigned. The LM-spec bodywork has an extended front splitter, fixed headlights, a top-vented front hood, taller rear wing and open mesh rear bodywork. The lengthened doors and repositioned fuel-tank pods were informed by Brickmonkey's modified build, while the gray interior firewall was removed entirely, allowing the seats to be extended back along with the stretched doors for a more properly-scaled cabin. The black trim line is now brick-built the full circumference of the car, and the chromed #56145 rims from Bricks4All have fully scratch-built BBS LM wheel inserts (see my F40 album on Flickr for some in-progress photos). My original goal of just lowering the 10248 model's ride height rapidly evolved into in a fully revamped chassis, keeping only a portion of the central floor and the clever side sills from TLG's model. The race-spec front section carries an oversize radiator, air jacks, sway bars, repositioned hydraulic reservoirs and low-mounted battery suspended on Technic beams. The redesigned rear chassis lifts the axle position and provides mounts for the sway bar and air jack details as well as vestigial rear springs and oil coolers. The engine and transmission assembly was also lengthened and lowered and features details for turbos, wastegates, exhausts, a larger intake manifold and intercoolers. Also tucked in there are the cam-drive ancillaries, oil filter, and transmission-oil line. I followed the spec of a particular F40 LM which underwent a comprehensive resto-mod; much larger intercoolers, dual wastegates and many other updates went into the build. It's all well documented here: Custom stickers were created for the Braille battery, Magneti Marelli digital dashboard, and labels on the master cylinder fluid reservoirs. This project was a first for me at this scale (well, since I was a kid anyway) and a blast to do. It went way, way deeper than I had intended; motivation and inspiration for what was possible came from the large-scale masterworks of Luca Rusconi, Carl Greatrix, Norton74, and Robert Alexander (also Biczzz’s Alfa, Gerald Cacas, Sir.Manperson, Alex Paschoaletto). Hope you enjoy checking it out. Original base model: 1157 pcs. As built, appx: 1270 pcs. Parts changed or added: 490 pcs (39%) (*ps, missing a good clean "finished" front 3/4 shot, have to set up another shoot and add it back here)
  24. Hi! It's time to upgrade one more shelf model (the previous one was the Batmobile 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 :)
  25. 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: or 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.
