  1. [MOC] 1968 Ford Mustang Fastback

    I liked the new Mustang set so I completely remade it in my building style.
  2. The Focus RS500 was launched in April 2010. A limited production run of 500 units (101 of them for Britain) were produced. It has a turbocharged 2.5 L5 petrol engine which produces 345 bhp and can do 0-62 mph in 5.4 seconds, with a top speed of 165 mph (266 km/h) making it the fastest Focus yet. Flickr Album: https://flic.kr/s/aHsmcw9qTe The new model was given the RS500 designation to highlight its strictly limited production run of 500 individually numbered vehicles, all of which were offered for customers to purchase. Each RS500 carries a metal plaque on the centre console, hand-engraved with a unique identification number from 001 to 500. Ford Focus RS by Dugald Cameron, on Flickr This is my rendition of the Ford Focus RS 500. This is a commission build and as such will not have any instructions. Ford Focus RS by Dugald Cameron, on Flickr This car is a full manual model and features a 6-speed manual gearbox tucked below the miniature inline 5 cylinder, fully adjustable seats, fold flat rear seats, adjustable steering wheel, open-able hood, trunk and doors, closed loop pneumatic e-brake, custom cantilevered suspension with reverse ackerman steering, HOG steering with working steering wheel, spare tire, 4x PF lights at front, 2 PF lights at rear with fully detailed engine and interior. Ford Focus RS by Dugald Cameron, on Flickr This is my first full manual model, with tons of challenges along the way and a total build time of over a years work.

And thanks @crowkillers @Rudivdk For your inspiration for the gearbox! And last but not least @Lox Legofor all the help throughout this build, especially for the photos and video you rock bro! And as always more pictures available on Flickr, click any of those pics to see more! Thanks for the interest.
  3. Here's a MOC on which I'm working since the end of the previous summer! After I have done the video of my DS3, I had the idea to do a new chassis with 4 wheel drive. I thought it would not be possible, but the first prototype was better than my DS3! Actually the MOC is not finished. The stickers are missing, and I'm continuing to develop the chassis (I'm adding a 4th L motor) Actually there are 1 L for the front, and 2 L for the rear. The great advantage of the 4WD is that it can take a great angle while turning, but it's always controllable. But, that can have an inconvenient: the understeering. For that, I did the same thing on the real RC drift cars: I added a free wheel. So when I do not accelerate, the front wheels are not braked and the car does not understeer. You can see this video on this video, done for BuWizz with Charbel. But this is one. It's the same thing, but there is only my car. The final gymkhana will be for the next summer, because that requires a lot of time, and with the school, I have not enough time at another moment of the year.
  4. I'm happy to present my model of the classic 1966 Ford Mustang GT 350-H, a very special version of the legendary Pony. It doesn't look perfect, but it has all the functions I wanted, including some really creative ones. More photos and description: http://sariel.pl/2017/12/ford-mustang-gt-350-h/
  5. This Ford GT is the ultimate expression of form following function. Its teardrop- shape body is the result of extensive work in the wind tunnel. Its carbon-fibre body and its 600-plus horsepower 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine are the ultimate expressions of technological innovation. Flickr: https://flic.kr/s/aHsm7qSxrk Hello Ford and Technic addicts! Thorsten has completed professional instructions for the Ford GT. It might be time to disassemble your 42056 Porsche Kit and build this orange replica of the 2017 Ford GT! Avail at Rebrickable, check it out! Rebrickable: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-10792/Loxlego/ford-gt Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/gp/139930963@N04/83f95A Video: https://youtu.be/bV8_uOz50oU Ford GT - race car for the road ? by lachlan cameron, on Flickr This supercar packs RWD driven by 2 XL-Motors, Servo for steering, pushrod-actuated torsion bar style suspension front and rear, Sport and track mode suspension, V6 engine, Sbrick plus, Rear spoiler with manual lift, 2 M-motors (1 for each door), button to turn on the car under the hood, easy battery access. Ford GT - From drawing board to reality ? by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Nothing about this build was easy. This car had so many new things that I've have never accomplished before. To start was the framework. I was worried this build would be too heavy for the pushrod suspension. Each wheel has 2 inboard shocks that are positioned in the same fashion as the real Ford GT. Ford GT - door mechanics - filter shot by lachlan cameron, on Flickr I really wanted to have the doors open the same as the real car and this is where difficulty started. Opening those huge, heavy doors was a small feat in itself. The pressure required to pop the door to the final position upwards is immense, so I has to seriously gear down the axle. Ford GT - doors by lachlan cameron, on Flickr The next challenge was the motor placement. Man was it ever hard to fit everything inside a tear drop bodywork! I had to use the middle of the seats for the Sbrick, which may not look too cosmetically appealing, but I can assure you it did completely strengthen the framework immensely. (this may be my sturdiest frame I've made) IMG_0043 by lachlan cameron, on Flickr Lastly, I kept the Veneno to race the Ford GT as they have identical gearing. If you watch the video, you'll see who wins. I will work with Thorsten as well for professional instructions in the future. Ford GT back view ? by lachlan cameron, on Flickr A big thanks to @brunojj1 for suggesting to place more studs between the wheels. I tried it this time (2 extra studs) and I feel it looks proper. thanks! Ford GT - white room - filter by lachlan cameron, on Flickr
  6. [MOC] 5th Generation Ford Mustang GT

    This is my first MOC in about 5 years. It's a 5th generation Ford Mustang GT - I specifically modeled it after a 2008. It uses a lot of Speed Champions elements and shares some design traits with that series as well, such as the SNOT side panel and bumper body work. It was designed in Mecabricks and ordered via Bricklink - the orange 1 x 1 corner panels were the most difficult part to track down, since they only appeared in 2 fairly unpopular sets in 2004.
  7. The Takehito Yamato Coupé I saw this classic Hot Rod on Chop & Roll magazine few months ago and I was stricken by the uncommon colour (PPG 1936 Cordoba Tan) and by the smooth design of this Deuce. Plus its story was really cool: built in California and shipped to Japan where its new owner lives. Japan has a thriving hot rod scene, and many cars have been bought and shipped there. This coupe, however, is the first being built to order then making the trek across the Pacific. Takehito Yamato contacted Walden Speed Shop, based in Pomona Ca., after seeing his works in The Rodder’s Journal. Takehito wanted a traditional hot rod, and while that may be essentially what he ended up with, the details are what really sets this coupe apart. Inspired by the Takehito Yamato history I built the tan Deuce with all the details you’d expect to see in a brick-built scale model. To complete the work I built a brand-new show-room full of vintage stuff. Below the broken-down view showing the red Chevy ZZ383 with aluminium heads in all its glory. Below the Deuce with the magazine where I read about its story. More info and pictures on my flickr Thanks for stopping by.
  8. Hello everybody, This is my first post here, although I have been a frequent visitor for a while. This is the MOC that I have recently been working on - a 2014 Ford F-150. Features: - 4x4 drive through 2 XL motors -Steering through M motor (will be connected to steering wheel when finished) -Opening doors, tailgate, bed toolbox, and hood -Front winch -Full suspension -Front and rear lights Some pictures: The two front doors, the winch, and opening hood are all powered by an M motor run through a distribution transmission. The three functions are controlled by a servo motor: neutral position (shown in the picture) opens both doors simultaneously, rotating one direction operates the winch, and rotating the other direction will open the hood when it is finished. In the picture below you can see the driving rings of the transmission and the servo motor above it. For me, designing this has been the most fun and challenging part of the model, if any of you are particularly interested I could make a short video about it. The interior and the front end still need a lot of work as you can see. Additionally many exterior pieces around the cabin are not the desired color. I am hoping to get this finished in the next couple of weeks, at which point I will make a final video showing the functions. Of course any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. This is my second large scale MOC (the first one was a dodge challenger that was not very well done imo and has already been destroyed for parts). Hope you guys like it!
  9. @LEGO presented their variation of Ken Block's Hoonicorn machine for the Gymkhama video. So I decide to have a reverse engineering challenge of the brick model. Could not find any rear photos so went for a freestyle build in the rear part. Full how to build tutorial in the video! Thanks for watching!
  10. [MOC] 1969 & 2005 Ford Mustangs

    Hi everyone :) Below are mocs of 2 of my favourite cars, '69 and '05 Mustang Hope you guys like it ! Thanks & Regards, KMP www.facebook.com/kmpmocs
  11. Hi Guys, been a while! Just thought I would drop a quick line letting anyone know that instructions are available for my GTHO, only 4.5 years after I first started building! hahaha. I have received a lot of enquirers about the instructions and its those people that keep me at it, through to completion. Please check out Rebrickable. :) Now I can finally start on something new! YAY ;P
  12. [MOC] Ford C-Series Truck

    This is my model of a Ford C-Series truck (prototype here). I tried to cram as many details as possible into it, which was a challenge for this small of a model! Unfortunately minifigs don't fit inside. More pics can be found on my Flickr. Comments and criticisms welcome! -Matt
  13. This model was originally by Hachiroku24 as the flying car driven by the Weasley's in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. In real life, the car type used in the film was made by Ford for sale in the United Kingdom and was called the "Anglia". This particular version (a 105-E Super) was built from 1959 - 1968. I've wanted a accurate version of the flying car driven by the Weasley's in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. I have been doing this cycle of building, revising with newer parts, tearing apart, and repeat since 2002 when the original set 4728 (Escape from Privet Drive) was released. I changed the color from the original medium blue to black around 2004 and revised the wheel size around 2011. Now I have added a new style front end to the car via a design by Hachiroku24. Oh, and the mini-figure in the picture is my sig-fig, which is NOT included with the car in the LDD file. The car without my sig-fig. The car can seat two mini-figures on jumper plates, and also features opening doors and trunk with plenty of space. The rear of the car features a license plate and a jumper plate to represent the exhaust pipe. As I said, the car fits two mini-figures comfortably. (The steering wheel is in the wrong spot for UK driving, but I live in the USA so I changed it for right-side driving here in the States.) Here you can see the original Hachiroku24 model, which inspired me to revamp my car. If you want to build one of these according to the original designer, follow the instructions in video form in this topic here on Eurobricks. Comments, Questions, and Complaints are welcome, though any praise for the blue model and front bumper design should go to the original designer ( Hachiroku ) in his topic, as linked to above. If you are looking for the LDD file for my car, here it is.
  14. "There is no man living who isn’t capable of doing more than he thinks he can do" - Henry Ford (Description below is taken from project page on Ideas) "The prototype of this project, Ford Model T was not the first car ever built, neither it was the most powerful, fast, beautiful and so on... It was revolutionary because of its availability, making the concept of automobile the one we know today - a vehicle, more or less affordable for highest amount of people possible, not a luxury for the chosen ones. That is why I have chosen Tin Lizzie - it's simply iconic. Since there is a plenty of variations of Model T, I ended up making the collective image of it without sticking to any exact modificaton, but trying to follow the last, 1927 version of it - wheels' choice was probably the hardest part because of the original, since there aren't any tires that narrow. However, the overall look of Lizzie is still recognizable. Being a huge fan of vehicles myself, I grab every new set of Creator Expert car as soon as it's possible - but one day I just decided to try my skills in making my own model, that's how this project has been born. Adjusted to scale of already existing vehicles, this set could be a nice addition to the collection and a good gift for other many cars' enthusiasts. Since I'm planning to develop the project, the updates will be coming without any doubt - the final target is to manage to improve the model as much as possible and to build a real version of it, so stay tuned :) Thanks in advance to every single supporter and everyone who stopped to look at this project!" Thanks again for stopping by and have a great day! :)
  15. Inspired by the modular Fire brigade Fire engine and modification to the Palace Cinema Limousine, I have gotten another idea to build a simple vehicle for the Parisian Restaurant modular theme. Sharing my 6 studs wide build - 1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible (First Generation).

  16. Get your kicks on Route 66... U.S. Route 66, also known as the Mother Road, is propably the most iconic road in the world. The first time I heard about Route 66 was many years ago when I listened the Rolling Stones playing "Get your kicks on Route 66". From that moment on I loved the 66 and especially all the buildings, the art deco' gas stations and the advertising signs along the road. I built a little piece of the Route to present my latest Hot Rod that has a great story at its back too. The red/white machine in the pic was owned and raced by Hayward V-Eights member Lee A. Jagla of Hayward, California. Lee got the hot rod as a gift from his parents for his high school graduation in 1960. In 1965 the “T” went into storage, and spent the next 48 years locked up in a dry garage. When Lee passed away, his daughter sold the old hot rod as part of her dad's estate. In 2014 it was advertised for sale on eBay. Jon Aksel Lier of Tønsberg, Norway, found the listing and won it. Now he happily drives a truly piece of american kustom kulture! Below disassembled The car features a '23 Ford Model T body mounted on a '30 Ford Model A frame. Power comes from a 241 cu. in. '53 Dodge baby Hemi that ran an Offenhauser intake manifold and a single 4 barrel carburetor. It ran 1939 Ford taillights and Yankee brand headlights. Painted white with a red chassis. Plus I added two red stripes on the entire machine, a little hard-top and the brand Ford in red on the back of the turtle deck. More info and pics on flickr. Thanks for stopping by.

  17. Hey Guys, right now i`m building another Vehicle for my "Lego City Future" Theme. This Time,it`s a small and ordinary old Car (modeled after a Ford Model A) that was once retrofitted with affordable Aftermarket Pieces to turn it into a Hovercar. The Main Body is pretty much done but i still struggle to think of something for the Chassis (the Area with the orange Bits) I know that there are a lot of talented Masterbuilders around here and i`m sure someone has a cool Idea. I added the LDD File for your convenience. Would love to hear/see some Input and Ideas. Lego City Future-Ford Model A.lxf
  18. [MOC] Ford GT

    And a short video to showcase some of the most interesting parts of the construction Racing version
  19. This model was inspired by two Harry Potter sets numbered 4841 (Hogwarts Express, 4th Edition) & 4728 (Escape from Privet Drive) plus a single Friends set number 41101 (Heartlake Grand hotel) to create this single vehicle type, the 1960's Ford Anglia 105-E. This isn't my first time creating this car, but it is my first time reworking the model so heavily.... usually I follow the same pattern set forth from this model: This is from way back in June 2007. And this is from today. Unfortunately, the only colors you can build this car in is white or black. To keep it visually interesting, the black car has white furnishings, while the white car has a dark bluish gray interior. The front of the car features headlight styling cues from Heartlake Grand Hotel's Taxicab, while retaining the grille work of set the Weasely's Anglia from the Hogwarts Express set. I also added hinge plates to the sides by the doors to represent mirrors. The rear of the car has the trunk design from 4728's version of the same flying car from the 2002 Chamber of Secrets set line. Oh, and the bumper features a license plate and tailpipe. The model features two off-center seats for mini-figures (two can fit in the car), opening trunk with plenty of luggage space, and two opening doors. Here is the LDD file for both the white and black model cars: http://www.moc-pages...1467244397m.lxf Comments, Questions, and complaints are always welcome, as I would love feedback on the models. Thanks in advance! EDIT: Here is a picture of an actual Anglia for reference, taken from Wikipedia. Here is the link to it's wiki page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Anglia
  20. First of all, for those who havent seen it allready: They claim it to be just for advertising and not to become an official set. Well, looking through the video, this is quite easy to build. So we dont mind^^ From what i could see, there are no new parts so this can be build with nowadays "standard" stuff. If you allready own some of the SC, this should be a piece of cake partwise. File is ready for LDD download via this link , though im not very sure on the inside structure. The shape however should be correct ;-) Enjoy Ford GT 40 Speed Champions LDD file by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr
  21. MOC Speed Champions Ford GT LM '16

    I'm a huge fan of the Lego Speed Champions range but when I saw that they had Ford sets, I was dissapointed to find that the new GT was not among them so i've had to build it myself. Stickers and all.
  22. Scale is 1:11, Features 90 degree V8 fake engine, steering, 4 speed transmission, double wishbone front / live axle rear suspension and everything that should open, does. Except the glovebox. Shelby Mustang GT350 by Nick Barrett, on Flickr Shelby Mustang GT350 by Nick Barrett, on Flickr The steering parts are those little 3L ones from a few years ago, which fit within these wheels for reasonable steering geometry at the expense of decent lock. Still, at least the wheels don't rub the sides of the close fitting arches. Shelby Mustang GT350 by Nick Barrett, on Flickr The shift plate from 8880 is just superb - such a nice gearchange! Now we just need one in black.... Shelby Mustang GT350 by Nick Barrett, on Flickr It's the '66 model GT350 with side window in place of the '65's louvres. Also without the '67-on extra metal grafted on the ends. Shelby Mustang GT350 by Nick Barrett, on Flickr Shelby Mustang GT350 by Nick Barrett, on Flickr Also, seats slide, tilt forward and recline. Well, the front ones do. The rear ones just sit there... Shelby Mustang GT350 by Nick Barrett, on Flickr
  23. I'm not very car savvy, but I'll have to admit that this one is pretty cool. Trying to build it was quite a challenge though! I decided to go for accuracy over play-ability whenever there was a trade-off; so no fancy opening doors or trunk or hood, but there is a full interior! Started this off thinking that at this scale the curves would be easier to achieve than they would have been at a smaller size. Boy, was I wrong. One of those builds where you have to build three different versions of every single section - but in the end, it was worth it. Thanks for looking!
  24. I built different hot rods and T-buckets in the past few months: a Green T-bucket, a Tow Rod, a classic black Roadster, Show Rods... ...but this time I built a unexpected machine... a '23 Ford T-bucket in pure Steampunk-ish style. This little machine features classic T-Bucket elements - an oversize small-block V-8, a short and reinforced chassis, drag slicks, "T" style radiator - mixed with Steampunk characteristics. Black, gold and brown colors are really a great combo and they seem looking tasteful on this little strange vehicle. Even if there are two pipes above the engine, necessary to exhaust the steam, this "T" can also use petrol, it's a sort of hibrid car...in fact on the back you can see the gas tank. Here the Steampunk "T" is photographed on my Garage. All the best and happy building! Andrea - Norton74
  25. Hi everybody, new guy here! I'll admit, I've been reading and following Eurobricks for years, more years than I can count fingers on my hand. I officially signed up a couple months back, but have yet to post anything until now. I wanted to have something interesting to show you guys before I did, and now I do (hopefully). Allow me to present my custom LEGO Speed Champions MOC's! First of all, I love the Speed Champions sets. As a car guy and a LEGO fan, these are the best of both worlds. That being said, the designs leave a lot to be desired, which is also part of why I love them so much. I see an opportunity to exercise some creativity and do some hands-on building to make them as accurate to their real counterparts as possible. It starts with widening these models to 8-studs. That makes them too large for City-scale, but improves the look dramatically. Plus, with the added dimensions, you can put more detail into the models and get the proportions of auxiliary features (such as lights, exhaust, grille, etc.) correct. Truth be told, many of these had been in the works for almost a year, the first wave, that is. Most of the second wave is still in the works, though the Mustang and Corvette you see above are almost done. I've been constantly tweaking, retweaking, and fine-tuning my designs and I feel like I'm never fully satisfied with any of them. Some of the cars you see above haven't been fully completed. Some of the other Speed Champions are not shown in the photo because they're still half-built. In time, I will eventually show all of them. Today, I'll be showing one that has been completed to my liking: the Porsche 918 Spyder. With these models, I stick to a few rules that I set for myself: One, use as few of the stickers as possible. Stickers can only give so much depth; therefore, brick-built designs will look more authentic. Two, no custom parts or custom stickers. In the occasion that I do use stickers, I only use what's given on the sticker sheet. Three, no illegal building techniques. I want these to resemble a model that LEGO themselves would put out as a set. The common opinion is that the Porsche 918 is the dullest of the first wave of Speed Champions. I quite enjoyed tooling with this one, and it was actually easier than expected. I ditched the stickers for the front and rear intakes. I used stickers for the badges, fuel caps, and headlights. Technically, I could've gone with trans-clear cheese slopes for the headlights, but it didn't look quite right to me. I'm not a fan of the Speed Champions window/cockpit pieces for doing 8-wide builds. This is a Spyder, so it wasn't too hard to come up with a brick-built substitute. Without the window pieces, I'm now able to fit two minifigures side-by-side. It works because the construction of the sides is relatively simple and not very bulky. Being a convertible also helps too. I went with the brown leather plastic interior because I think it looks very classy. I try to recreate the interiors as accurately as possible. Side mirrors are an extra touch for added realism. This model also features a removable front trunk (frunk?) that can fit a couple of the suitcase pieces. You can see it in the short little video I have below! So, that's it for my first post! Let me know what you guys think! I'm always open to constructive criticism and if you have any alternate building techniques in mind, I'd love to hear about them! Also, please let me know if I'm doing something wrong with regards to posting and/or forum conduct. I'm still learning!
