[MOC] [MOD] BMW M1 Procar - 76908 b-model
Marcin Majkowski posted a topic in LEGO TownI remember a time when 8 studs of vehicle width for minifigs meant that someone built a truck or something that big. Several years ago, this "scale" was not very popular, because of the small selection of tires and windows, although I made a few 8s wide models myself, such as the BMW E24 or the Polonez Coupe. Nevertheless, they were definitely not for figs. Lego once again confirmed its very loose approach to scale by creating the Speed Champions line. Despite the promising start in the form of 6s cars, the series unexpectedly turned into a rash of stickers with strange windows and forcibly added minifigs. When the announcement of the Lamborghini Countach model appeared, for a moment I was fooled that I may still like this series. On the one hand, these models have a lot of charm, they look nice on the shelf, but on the other hand, this huge amount of stickers is a nightmare. It made me think if it is possible to do something sensible by resigning from decals and a minifig. The BMW M1 may not be as iconic as the Countach or Testarossa, but it has its undeniable charm. The silhouette is very similar to the Lambo, so it was immediately chosen this model to build from the 76908 set. As it happens in this game, there was a festival of compromises. Rebuilding with just one set is a big challenge. Both cars are supposed to be the same size, but with about 2/3 of the model I used almost all the white bricks. I started slimming, which had a heavy impact on the rear of the vehicle, but I am quite happy with the final result. This is how the B model of the 76908 set, i.e. the BMW M1 Procar version, was created.

[MOC] Lamborghini Countach 2021
_TLG_ posted a topic in LEGO TownHello Lamborghini and Speed Champions fans, The Lamborghini Countach 2021: the supercar is reborn 50 years after the 1970s original. It is futuristic while also paying homage to the legendary 1971 design. The engine, a 12-cylinder hybrid with a staggering 769bhp, growls in a way only a 12 cylinder can do, while an electric motor adds another 34bhp to the output: a glimpse into the future of hybrid and fully electric Lamborghinis. Building instructions are available on the following link: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-93056/_TLG_/lamborghini-countach-2021 ( 20% off coupon on the first week: COUNTACH-FIRSTWEEK :) ) It is a studless model in the new, 8 studs wide Speed Champions style. I have minimized the use of stickers to keep the flexibility of the used parts in further builds, therefore only two ones are used: the Lamborghini logo and a solid black one for the narrow front grill. My intent was to keep the width-length-height ratio of the real car and this size makes it possible. I wanted to build the model as accurate as possible in this small scale, therefore it contains lots of details: for example the side grills, the front ligths, the front grills, the side view mirrors, the exhaust details etc... Maybe the most challenging one was the emblematic polygonal side opening. 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.
