AndroTech posted a topic in LEGO Technic, Mindstorms, Model Team and Scale ModelingNow that we have a better pictures of 42039 Le Mans car, it is time to share some thoughts. ... do I see a rare 19L white flex axle in the front going to the cabin? I definitely prefer the first version of the car. The nose was so much nicer ... There seems to be yellow shocks in the front right wheel, so it seems to have a suspension. There is also HOG steering, open-able rear end, some existing parts in new colours, and that's about it ...
3166 parts and a stupid number of evenings later and they are finally done: The GTEPRO racing Porsche 911 RSR cars from Le Mans 2018 in scale 1:20. Let's take them one by one. First we have the #91 car. It wore the Rothmans livery to celebrate 70 years of Porsche. Special for this car is how the gold (and pearl gold) parts form a (nearly) continuous line from the headlights to the trail lights. What I'm especially happy about is how I managed to add the bulge above the rear wheels. The #92 ran with the victory in the class. It wore the 'pink pig' livery in celebration of the 70 years. This was the most challenging car to build due to the low availability of bright pink parts. They were not all available when I first built the model in 2018, so I went to Le Mans with a multi-colored car, as can be seen in the video. But thanks for Overwatch, the car is not (almost) entirely pink! Car #93 was the first one that I finished. It has the 'standard' Porsche livery which also was present on the 919 prototype the year before. See my take on that car in this thread: https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/151274-moc-porsche-919-hybrid-le-mans-race-car-in-scale-120/ The biggest challenge with this model was the brick built lines. I prefer not to use stickers to denote lines and pieces of the bodywork. The cars should also look fine without stickers. Car #94 will most likely try to forget there even was a Le Mans in 2018. They crashed in the first qualifier and retired early from the race. The car is almost the same as #93. The differences being white spoiler, side mirrors and different stickers.

I am happy to help.
