  1. I would like to introduce my latest project Mini Formula Racer. I usually make alternative models from the official sets from technic series, but due to the fact that this year TLG has released a tragic package of models for me with reduced functions and strange mixing of incompatible colors in one set, I have plans preparing more no-alternate MOCs. Here's the first one: small formula racer, initially based on old set 8808 but I changed it so much that it's not a studless version of official set. Features working steering wheel, working V6 engine, adjustable mirrors and rear spoiler (DRS), rear diffuser. In this model I didn't add system halo because it looks bad on this scale, also there is not enough space for the differential (the engine is driven by one wheel). Some comparision with 8808 set (built in a different color than the original, yellow color sheme) Free instructions available at Rebrickable
  2. Hi folks, I'm happy to present my 42141 alternate build, which seems to be the first alternate model of McLaren Formula 1 released so far. Instructions can be found as usual on rebrickable. This Crash Team Racer Fun-Kart is an alternate build of set 42141 McLaren Formula 1 from 2022. No other parts are required to build this model. The model uses 3 spare parts that are included in the set 42141, with a total parts count of 1257. Keep in mind that the set 42141 McLaren Formula 1 comes in different versions with different sticker sheets that do not affect the build of this alternate model. If you own any of the set 42141 McLaren Formula 1, you can completely build this Crash Team Racer alternate model without any restriction. What is a Crash Team Racer? This Kart is driven by the character Crash Bandicoot in the 1999 video game Crash Team Racing and Crash Nitro Kart as competitor to the very popular Mario-Kart games. In 2019, the game Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled was released as remastered version for next-gen consoles, where this Kart appears again in better quality. You'll find renderings from the video game at the end of this article. Functions & Features smooth independent suspension in front and back steering with working steering wheel piston engine driven by differential through rear axle custom built engine block detailed design with many fun to play 39cm x 29cm x 19cm Impressions Testdriver Schorch seems very happy with the finished model... The giant exhaust pipes with flames are easy removable for a more common look... Custom built engine Because the standard engine parts won't fit at the scale of this alternate model, the highlight of this build is the custom made engine block, which works pretty well with a nice sound. Instructions The premium instructions for this Crash Team Racer comes with 258 pages of high quality images and steps to ensure a challenging but satisfying building experience with many cool building solutions. Instructions can be found on rebrickable. Following are some example pages of the instructions: Racer from the video game Have fun with this Crash Team Racer alternate build.
  3. I know it’s a bit early But while we wait for the set to be released… I don’t like the cylinder parts much anymore, so I intend to modify the engine. Judging from the photos we’ve seen, the engine is connected through the two connector blocks and apparently nowhere else. I’ve tried to make a new engine of the same size but of the kind I prefer, and with an attempt at a fake split turbo. Assuming there is a bit of space above where one connector block would be, the spinning ‘compressor wheel’ would be visible from the slot in the bodywork. Depending on the clearance beneath the engine, there’s a geared solution that would make the ‘compressor’ spin faster, and a rubber band solution that takes up less space. How bad it it? Suggestions?
  4. Dear fellow MOCcers, It's been some time since I last had something to show here - but now another model is finished, and - it's not a train, but a historic racing car. The Tyrrell 019 was designed by renowned Formula 1 designer Harvey Postlethwaite for the 1990 season. It debuted at that year’s San Marino Grand Prix where Jean Alesi drove it to 6th place. Though not overwhelmingly successful throughout the rest of the season (apart from a 2nd place in Monaco) due to its underpowered Cosworth DFR 3.5 litre V8 engine, the 019 has been one of the most influential cars in Formula 1 history, as it pioneered the "raised nose cone“ principle for maximised underbody airflow – a design which soon was copied by virtually all other F1 teams and has remained a standard feature of racing cars until today. My LEGO® model is built to 1/15 scale. Unlike many other LEGO® Formula 1 models of comparable scale and size, it features a removable cowling, detailed Cosworth V8 engine, realistic diffuser and (considering the size, at least) a rather detailed cockpit with steering wheel, seat-belts and gearstick. The model consists of approx. 650 parts. The front wing is mounted bottom-up using the "pneumatic hose technique“ shown here. The "single studs“ made from rigid and pneumatic hose are also used here and there. Thanks for stopping by! Sven
  5. Hello everyone. I would like to share a MOC I have just completed: Ferrari F2004 F1 car It’s in 1:8 scale with 1700+ parts. Some features: working V10, pushrod suspensions, steering wheel, removable front wing, rear wing, headrest, and engine cover I have uploaded some pictures to bricksafe: F2004 Bricksafe Instruction is also available here: F2004 Instruction
  6. 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.

  7. [MOC] Formula 1 (Lego McLaren Senna 75892) Lego McLaren Senna 75892 MOC - Formula 1
  8. Dear all, I would like to present a one-set MOC I realised based on the 8070 supercar. It was done after COP 21: an environmentally friendly alternate that does not use the PFS elements of the original set :D While deprived of PFS, this Formula 1 features quite a few interesting functions: 4 independent suspensions Direction by HOG and steering wheel A V8 fake engine A 2 speed gear box (accessible from the cockpit) A moveable spoiler (gear under the right side) An openable engine cover So basically, that is more than what the 42000 set offers ;) (yet with no optional motorisation) Here are a few pictures: A view from the cockpit: Opening the engine cover: The spoiler and V8 engine: From above: From below, showing the mechanics for opening the engine cover and moving the spoiler: Here are the left-over parts: Hope you like it :) Any comment most welcome.
  9. I just picked up the Boeing 787 Dreamliner (10177-1) and the Silver Champion (8458) and was wondering how I can go about adding my own livery to each of them? or if at all possible? Such as getting custom stickers created? is there a website or program that would be helpful in creating custom stickers for these sets? **UPDATE COMPARISON BETWEEN SILVER CHAMPION 8458 AND MCLAREN MP4/14, MERCEDES MGP W01, F1 CARS** LEGO F1 SILVER CHAMPION 8458 1999 MCLAREN MERCEDES F1 MP4/14 2010 MERCEDES-PETRONAS F1 MGP W01
  10. Hi, I made a C-Model for the 42048 Kart :) It features a Formula 1 with working direction (controlled by HOG) and a fake engine with two gears (which can be switched from the back). The hood can be opened. There are also two exhausts and a position light in the back. It is quite fun to play with and the steering radius is much better than the one of A-model :) Here are a few pictures: The HOG is in place of the steering wheel (small yellow part). Steering mechanism is similar to B-Model, but more flat (it is only 1 stud high). The gear box is taken from A-Model and features the same ratios. The switch is on the back however (could not really put it in the cockpit :p ). Any comment welcome ! Will post instructions on rebrickable as soon as possible.
  11. Hello everybody, I'd like to share my latest project, an ~ 1:8 scale model of Ferrari's new Formula 1 car, the SF71H piloted by Räikkönen and Vettel. Features include: - PF-driven remote controlled driving and steering - custom stickers and tyre decals - functional crash structures (Halo, airbox, front and rear) - damperless suspension (more on that below) - realistic rake - bricks with Technic holes as "skeleton" The car is designed in the same manner as the Racers 2008 Ferrari (8157), though I completely started over with this MOC, I just use the same basic idea to get the whole car structurally stable and nearly flex-free. The Halo is the only non-Lego part I had to use because I don't have red flex axles, so instead I used part of a firetruck hose I found somewhere between old toys and stuck them onto 53451 mounted in holes next to the headrest section. The suspension is quite unconventional. I don't own the Technic F1 suspension bricks and I didn't feel like buying them, so I tried to build kind of an F1 style suspension without them. The front one is nearly the same as 8157's, only with a few adjustions, mainly in width. The rear unit is a standard double wishbone suspension with 9L liftarms, the driveshafts only have CV joints at the differential, not at the wheel carriers. This way, I was able to mount the Porsche wheels to the axle using truck rims to connect them. At first, I had the suspension fixed with all sorts of L-shaped technic bricks, but neither worked in holding the suspension high enough for the car to be tilted forwards or even even (^^). I didn't want to use shock absorbers because a) there is no space for them and b) if I would've mounted them directly, without pushrods, they would've stuck out, and I didn't want them to spoil the otherwise pretty clean look of the rear. The alternative I went for was mounting two 32140 Technic L-bricks to the upper wishbones with two black mounting pins, with the outer as a regular pin, while the inner pins are ones that are borken on one side so the whole thing could flex quite a bit. I then asymmetrically mounted a 13L liftarm between the tops of them to push them apart, and the flex made possible by the broken pins allows the whole thing to absorb pretty decent bumps. I also crashtested the Halo which can be seen at the end of this video. The official FIA Test used a 20kg tyre fired at the cockpit with 225 kph, so considering the scale of the model, my tyre should be about 7 m/s fast when hitting Halo. My highly scientific approach of making sure that is roughly case was to throw the tyre across the room, making it travel about 7 metres in less than a second. Scienced. Stickers were made by printing on photo paper, putting transparent duct tape on it and double-sided tape on the rear, no muscles strained there. For the tyre decals, I used my mother's Silhouette Cameo 3, a basic plotter, with yellow Oracal vinyl material that is usually used for car stickers. It's a bit of a pain in the brick to put them on the tyres and keep them there, but if they are really clean and dry and the glue on the vinyl is fresh and new, it can be done. I also used the rest of that material for decals on my little brother's -removed- Porsche for a livery he "designed" himself, here's a picture to show what else can be done with this method. Image removed. Finally, I'd like to give some impressions of the car, which can also be seen in the video, but the original pictures are higher res, so here they are. I know it's not perfect and I still improve it day by day, but I just had to share it now, so let me know what you think! Edit: recalculated scale due to new information available.
  12. Hello fellow Legoheads! Here is my most recent creation, a medium-scale Ferrari Formula 1 car in the style of the 1990's era. 450 parts, original LEGO stickers, steering, and all the proper aerodynamic features of that time - namely big wings, bigger wing end plates and a blown diffuser for -literally - tons of down force. If you like it or if you have an ideas for improvements please let me know via a comment. Thank you!

    Lotus 78 Ford historic f1

    i would like to show you my new historic f1 car. not as great as my other two i think but i let you be the judge it is the John player special lotus 78 Ford black and gold
  14. Hey! Here I am with another little F1 car, this time from the 1985-1990 period. Its made of 450 parts, it does have steering and its aerodynamics are realistic. It was a lot of fun to build with all the SNOT. I hope you like it!
  15. Here's my entry for Rebrick's "Racers of Tomorrow" contest. This is my vision of Mercedes AMG's 2030 F1 contender. This futuristic design features advanced aerodynamics, side mounted air intakes, the "Shield" windscreen and even a previously controversial fan on the back which sucks the car to the track, increasing downforce. It used to be banned from racing but by 2030 F1 cars had become so fast, that fans have become the only means of keeping the car stable. The windscreen also has AR technology that acts as a heads-up display for the driver. More photos can be found here: https://www.lego.com/en-us/rebrick/view-entry?c_id={4FA9C458-4653-4CF1-8622-FE8A6FA4CE22}&a_id=ce5e75ba-e84b-4f16-a924-3547e3609277 Please let me know what you think of the car. Thank you!
  16. During the last 26 years I have been involved in the organisation of Motorsport races. I have been lucky enough to be part of the most important FIA (Formula 1) and FIM (MotoGP) Championships. Some time ago I decided to build with bricks the Marshal post where I have been collaborating. And due that two weeks ago, after the Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix, I got "retired" I would like to share with you the LDD file of this model. You can dowload the LDD file from here: http://hispabrickmagazine.com/en/content/free-model-ldd-circuit-de-catalunya Enjoy it! Lluís Gibert

  19. I'm not really an F1 fan, I'm mostly into classic American cars. But I am a car guy and can appreciate all sorts of vehicles. I recently bought the Technic Grand Prix Racer (set 42000), mostly for the parts, and after building it I thought I'd build a new one from scratch. I didn't model it after any particular car. I noticed when looking at Formula One cars there are many different designs, which gave me a lot of freedom to come up with my own version. I built the chassis first, with studless Technic beams. The suspension is functional and closely based on the original 42000 configuration. The steering is also functional. The car is exactly twice as long as it is wide, 32 by 64 studs, which is slightly shorter than the 42000 model.
