  1. I had the good luck of being a kid in the '80-s, the Golden Age of LEGO Town. Back then the concept of town vehicles was simple: 4 studs wide, seats one person and, due to the proportions of the minifig, fairly tall compared to its length but otherwise perfectly recognisable for what it is: a CAR. Then I went to high school and uni, started my adult life, and with all my LEGO packed away in a box I only followed the juniorisation of the late '90-s and early 2000-s with a mild shock form a distance. However, in the middle of the decade the miracle happened, Town suddenly found itself and, as it coincided with my son growing old enough to fall for the brick, I started hunting the toy stores once again. But alas! The new concept was 6-wide! Everything 6-wide! A simple ambulance van as wide as a train! And even the few 4-wide cars had tires sticking out a mile with the odd fenders that were everywhere. To me it didn't look right at all. Meanwhile, my son grew and got very seriously into the MOC trains' business (strictly 8-wide) and needed a lot of scenery for his train layouts, so I decided to restore the glory of the 4-stud wide with some MOC-s of my own. My first was a little follow-me-car for an airport project which was heavily influenced by the work of fellow builder pjotr. Here is my version: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/Airport/Follow-Me-Car/dscn5036.jpg http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/Airport/Follow-Me-Car/dscn5041.jpg Next came a small tanker truck for the same project. I just love the way SNOT techniques became part of even the smallest sets, but I tried to still keep it in line with the 80's style. I also tried the smooth, "studless" look on this truck but I'm still undecided whether I like it or not. And the petrol company is Shell, no matter what Octan says. http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/Airport/Tanker-truck/dscn5030.jpg http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/Airport/Tanker-truck/dscn5033.jpg This truck looked very cute, but it also looked ridiculously small, and at this point I had to realise that the correct scale for trucks was the 6-wide after all…so I reverted to passenger cars. Like this still somewhat crude attempt at a colleague’s New Mini: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/RedMini/20171103_104340.jpg When the 10242 Mini Cooper came out a much smaller version also came with it. And I didn’t like it: you couldn’t even seat a minifig in there! So I made my own version: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/MiniCooper/20170923_115658.jpg http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/MiniCooper/20170923_115742.jpg Ok, I admit, it doesn’t have doors, but only because dark green doors are so horrendously expensive. Anyway, I designed it so that as soon as I can get a pair of real doors they will fit right in. While I was about it, I also made my version of perhaps the most famous Mini ever: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/MrBeanMini/20170907_204742.jpg Which brought along another classic movie car from the 80's: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/KITT/20170923_120212.jpg http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/KITT/20170923_115908.jpg And then there was no turning back :) A Land Rover Series III: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/LandRover/20170923_115238.jpg A Trabant 601 with custom sticker. Growing up in Eastern Bloc Hungary these were all around at that time. Today the few surviving ones are prized collector's items. The colour is absolutely authentic, you either had this, or a grayish white. But mostly just this. http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/Trabant601/20170923_115158.jpg http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/Trabant601/20170923_115128.jpg A VW beetle cabriolet, elegantly sidestepping the fact that I just couldn't fix a proper roof for it. With some custom stickers and chrome parts: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/WVCabriolet/20170923_115631.jpg http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/WVCabriolet/20170923_115553.jpg A small generic delivery truck (I know, I know, I said trucks are 6-wide but I just couldn't resist the colour, only baseplates and vegetation was available in green in the 80's). http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/Airport/Green-Truck/20170102_132027.jpg And an oldtimer, also greatly influenced by some photos I found on the internet, I just had to modify it a bit to include minifig. http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/Oldtimer/20171103_103748.jpg http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/domel/80sTownCars/Oldtimer/20171103_103828.jpg Well, this is it for now, more as I build. I know many people here praise the 6-wide as they provide a better scale to real life vehicles, but I always held that the proportions of the minifig are so screwed up that it is a futile effort at best to build scale models for them without sacrificing the play factor. For me it's a fun journey down memory lane and I hope you enjoyed it too. Please, leave a comment below if you liked them :)
  2. [MOC] Vintage Endurance Racecar

    Hey LEGO people! May I present to you, my model of an open top vintage endurance race car from the mid to late 70's. This is a heavily modified and improved version of a model I posted many, many moons ago. Those cars participated in the 24 and 12 hour events and were famous for their low drag bodies, blistering top speeds of up to 380 km/h / 235 mp/h and extremely lightweight constructions. I hope you like it!
  3. My Scarab SRV project. It's a planetary vehicle from video game Elite: Dangerous. On Flickr, and Lego Ideas, please support. Thanks.
  4. Advanced build from 60154 - Bus

    So... I finished my modification of the bus from 60154. I'm really happy with it. It's based off of an Optare Versa which is a really common type of bus in the north of England. It's 8-studs wide which is a little bigger than I wanted it to be, but given the parts usage was unavoidable. The entire front is built upside down and held in with friction, but seeing as this is a static display model I'm okay with that. I tried a few different ways to change the direction of the studs and connect it but none of them worked out with the space and alignment that I have. It's got a full, though simplistic, interior. The original set basically had nothing inside of it, so this is a huge step up in my mind. It seats 11 mini-figs and one driver. Would love some thoughts and any suggestions for improvements that people might have.
  5. This model was part of a recreation of the not-yet-released set 10259 (Winter Village Train Station) by user @JopieK (many thanks to him for the file!) over on this post seen here. I added some of my own touches, including a second level with spiral staircase and a change from yellow to blue for the color scheme. The rear of the bus features a slightly hidden spare tire behind the stairs. The model has a opening entry / exit door at the front of the bus and each level comes off individually. The staircase is attached at two points: a four-stud connection to the second level, and a single stud to the lower level. The staircase comes off easily when needed, but is sturdy enough not to fall off at the wrong time. As usual, Comments, Questions and Complaints are always welcome!
  6. Classic Space Mobile Laboratory

    First of all, greetings! I'm new here, I'm polish fan of LEGO and other toys, mostly Transformers and other action figures. I'm slightly reckonisable among polish YT toys community thanks to my polish toy reviews on channel called "Benny's Plastic World". I'm also fan of SW, comic book heroes, giant robots, Discworld, cartoons and other nerdy stuff. As the Afol I'm mostly fan of the old castle and space themes, and also Bionicle and other construction figures. Today I would like to present you my space MOC, an homage for Classic Space series. Mobile Laboratory is a three part model, each you can play apart, or attach them together. There is vehicle on treads, laboratory itself and the platform with the little mech suit. The staff contains three classic space astronauts and a little robot. Vehicle has movable radar and the locker with tools. Laboratory has openable door and roof, movable chair for the minifig, some computers and the second locker. Mech suit is pretty posable with ball jointed legs and feet and bendy like arms. Also, each astronaut has his own cup for tea or coffie :) More photos on my tumblr blog with tag "classic space" - https://bennyplasticworld.tumblr.com/search/classic I submitted this MOC for LEGO Ideas. If you like it I would appreciate your support! - https://ideas.lego.com/projects/486f4782-27cf-4a30-a440-d16fbd08b828
  7. Lego SDKFZ - 10 WW2 Vehicle

    Hey guys today I'm presenting you my new MOC ! The SDKFZ - 10 is a vehicle adopted by the German Army during WW2. My model is in a "transport - soldier mode"because I' ve projected it to carrier a maximum of 6 soldiers. Here you can find the video presentation on YouTube : Please Leave a Like and Support my channel by Subscribing :)
  8. Hi everyone, This will be my first project in a while, and my first project here. I want to try and make a 2WD (hopefully FWD, but RWD is fine if things get difficult), 4-cylinder car with a transversely mounted engine and gearbox assembly, and hopefully as a studless construction. I started mocking-up some of the gearbox in LDD (I know, not the best tool), and the results have not been too encouraging (space-wise). I haven't yet figured how to post photos, but I will when I do
  9. I love building cars. They're diverse, beautiful, and small enough to be built from spare pieces and scratch. So I went ahead and built a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud II. It's fancy, it's sleek, it's a bit of a challenge (just the right amount) and it looks fantastic on display. I love this model. I've built a Chevrolet Bel Air from 1957~ (I'll post it at a later date) and I'm working on a Plymouth Special Deluxe, but that one's stalled due to a lack of brown pieces. So far the Rolls has no functionality. Nothing opens, there's no motor and nothing in the trunk. But I'm working on it and you can expect a few updates soon! :) Luckily, LEGO doesn't yet own the Rolls Royce license, so I managed to put it on LEGO Ideas. Here's the link if you'd like to support the project (every supporter is greatly appreciated (obviously)): https://ideas.lego.com/projects/af1f1fe1-1bc2-41a8-b782-ba12e16a1d71 That's it for now, I'll get back to you all when I'm done adding some functionality to the car.
  10. MOC: Classic town supercar

    This is the first MOC I completed since coming out of my dark age. All parts are from my 90s Lego collection.The base is from a 1999 Shell promotional set, which used the 1996 style Formula One cars. A 2 x 2 plate above the rear bearing gives the car its aggressive slanted stance. That, and the long rear section, mark this car out as a mid-engined supercar. Like the exterior, the interior is all red, including the steering column. Access is via the traditional hinged roof. The leather jacketed driver is probably from a Town Jr set. I call him Quentin. The front-end was built as low as possible for aerodynamics. Styling is rather plain, but the wide racing wheels (also from the Shell promotional) make a bigger impression. The huge rear section is the car's powerhouse. Opening the rear hinged plate reveals the V8 engine (I usually assume two cylinders per stud). It too has a red colour scheme. The radio antenna and the lack of a spoiler mark this vehicle out as a roadgoing supercar, turning heads wherever it goes. At times, I have considered adding modern, specialised elements to make this car look more like a supercar, but I prefer it as it is, full of classic town atmosphere even though it was built in 2014! The only part I am unsure about is the radio antenna, a staple of classic town vehicles, but in this case it may spoil the vehicle's lines. What do other members think? The car was completed before I heard of the upcoming Speed Champions supercar line, which I am now really looking forward to. For a parting shot, here is the car with both hinges proudly open. The hinge is dead, long live the hinge!
  11. Today, I would like to share my first creation on Eurobricks with you all. A model of a giant towbarless Pushback Tug. To be exact, the Goldhofer AST-1X 1360. The real vehicle can lift up the front landing gear of the biggest aircrafts. I tryed to build all the functions, how they are build in the real Goldhofer, especially with the rear steering. The model has 8 RC functions:- Front wheel drive (XL Motor)- Front wheel steering (M Motor) - Rear wheel steering (2x M Motor) -- I had to decide, whether I would like to have crab steering or steering with different wheel angles to allow smooth driving. In the end I've chosen the second option, because crab steering is still kind of possible.- Raise cabin (M Motor)- Pneumatic pump (L Motor)- Raise landing gear (L Motor)- Close lid (M Motor)- Fix landing gear (M Motor) Unfortunately, the model has some flaws. The cabin is lifted in a weird way, because of the battery box under it and I struggled with the lifting section. I had to use really strong clutch gears and worn out valves, and even with that, the valves didn't switch always. Also I had a problem with one of the pneumatic cylinders, the reason why I used two pumps. As a result I had to glue two 2L axle between the pumps to the red 1x2 thin liftarms because of the vibration. I was sick of searching for another solution . Here is a quick render, made with LDD and Bluerender. Images with higher resolution on Flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/151347462@N05/albums/with/72157684495359644 I already took the model apart, but l would still love to hear your opinion, some tips or criticism. Maybe I'll give that model another go in the future.
  12. [MOC] Group-6 75' Race Car

    Hey fellow LEGO fans, may I present to you my latest creation! As the title says, this is a (fantasy / my own interpretation) version of a Group-6 race car from the mid to late 70's. I had a ton of fun building it as I never used so many smooth round bricks in a single model before. It consist of approx 760 parts, it has functional steering, its low-drag aerodynamic design is very realistic, it has a removable rear bodywork and a fully modeled cockpit. I hope you like it!
  13. OD-CX

    I was thinking about what I could do with the newly acquired bucket wheel excavator parts. Something that I couldn't build without these big yellow circles. That's how this strange idea came to be. The arms are motorized: they grab or drill and retract into the wheels. The compact and functional hand is my favourite part of the robot The two-wheel design makes it wobble a lot. Someone on youtube commented that it's headbanging to the music - genius!!! I might try making one with adjustable wheel angles next! Any suggestions? Check it out on LEGO Ideas!!!
  14. [MOC] Group-C Race Car

    May I present to you, my take on a car from the legendary 1980's Group-C racing series. Cars from that series were known for producing literally tons of down force through under body diffusers that accelerated the air underneath the car and vented it through two large openings in the back. The resulting low-pressure area underneath the entire car paired with aggressive splitters and light weight of the vehicle resulted in cornering speeds of up to 3-4 g's. Engine power in excess of 1000 bhp accelerated those cars to speeds up to 245 mp/h or 405 km/h. With my build, which consists of approx 1500 parts, I tried to visually capture the extreme speed and raw power of those cars. I hope you like it!
  15. [MOC] Lego Aston Martin Vulcan

    My moc of the Aston Martin Vulcan, at the moment it's my favourite moc. First saw the car while watching Grand Tour and loved it. The front of the car isn't very accurate but overall this is a satisfactory build. Hope you guys like it ! Regards, KMP FB : www.facebook.com/kmpmocs Flickr : www.flickr.com/photos/149274215@N03/
  16. [MOC] R75 "Weevil" High-Performance Racer

    Here's the first MOC I've posted here, a futuristic six-wheeled race car totally not inspired by the cars from Blade Runner, at all. I don't know what makes you think that. Okay, it kind of is. With that canopy piece, I had to do it. It was even going to have a hover feature involving the front wheel assemblies rotating around but I couldn't get it to work that well, hence the little pin/liftarm bits. I did decide to keep some of those parts in, though, because it created some neat angling and a sort of semi-functioning suspension. "Hey guys, it's Garry again with another Kirkslist find! Seller said it was a... uh, Model R75 race car. Never seen this kind before." "Awfully cramped inside... but the upholstery doesn't smell like moldy bacon this time. Score!" "Vroom vroom." "Nice, tail lights! I think that means it's street legal, right?" "Woah, it can handle pretty rough terrain too. Neat." (Here's that suspension I was talking about.) "Really low to the ground though... not so much going on in the undercarriage. I wonder where everything is?" "Ah, here's the engine! Waaaiitaminute, I remember this, the seller said not to look directly into this part, something about the accelerated particl-" Finally, here's an exploded view of the rear assembly, showing how it's offset. No real explanation for this one beyond "jointed moving parts are fun and this is why I put them in every moc" Check out the full gallery for more views and build details!
  17. [MOD] Dark Knight's Tumbler

    This is my mod of Lego 76001 Tumbler :) Sharing the same major flaw of 76001 Tumbler, this doesn't have 4 rear wheels and certain parts at the back are not available in black colour, but overall I'm satisfied with its sturdiness and shape. Hope you guys like it ! Regards, KMP www.facebook.com/kmpmocs/
  18. MOC - city vehicles

    Hi all, I started to sort my LDD creations folder and came across a few older MOCs that I haven't uploaded yet. I'm also testing various techniques for optimal performance of POV-Ray so my apologies for anything odd that I miss while editing the renders. First up is my version of an Aussie classic, a Holden Torana SLR 5000 from 1977. I almost bought one of these a few years ago but regrettably wasn't quick enough with an offer :( The MOC is fairly basic with the minimum features thrown in and it can seat a driver if his arms are pointed up slightly. Holden Torana SLR 5000 by Criga88, on Flickr My next MOC is a Chevrolet Camaro from 2010. I think I originally made this as a mod based on the older police cars that were in the City line. I made a couple of minor changes to it after I found it like the front grille area and rear fender. The 1x2x2/3 bow bricks (a personal favorite part) make the transition to the boot so much smoother which just wasn't possible when I first made this. Chevrolet Camaro by Criga88, on Flickr Keep an eye out for more soon, and let me know what you think.
  19. Good day. For a long time I wanted to create a moc with various functions apart from steering and drive. Overview: -4x4 drive with 2 diffs -3 steering modes : rear only, crab and all-wheel steering -Boom ascention -Boom extention -Forks tilting -part count of approximately 1000 pieces The forks on the end of the boom were able to be replaced with another attachment by pulling out two 8l axles with stop. The cabin has on openable door , adjustable seat and a lever to switch steering modes. The steering is a very basic type, the front stering motor is attached to a switch , which neutralizes it's movement or decides the direction of steering. the boom is extended through a pulley system , which was done due to lack of 4 stud gearracks. total boom size being fully extended is of 60 studs. The video below shows basic functionality. Something I learned with this build is that I should stick with smaller size mocs and not to rush into medium sized model. All photos here
  20. Bat Wolf, the chopper seen in the Lego Batman Movie, it first appeared when Robin managed to sneak into the Bat Cave, and appeared again around the 1 hr 05 min mark in the movie. Its image is also included in the LEGO® BATMAN MOVIE: The Making of the Movie book. Its not a very accurate build as my only reference was still images from the movie, so I went for simple, straight-forward building technics for this chopper :) Regards, KMP www.facebook.com/kmpmocs
  21. Been having fun with my Nexo Knights, some knock-off Dinosaurs and Legend Beasts, some real Lego Legend Beasts and a random Mixel. I thought it'd be fun for each knight to have an animal steed instead of vehicles. What kind of things would you like to see in Nexo Knights? Anybody else found any cool knock offs online that you wish were part of the franchise?
  22. Creating Tiny Turbo MOC is a great way to design a LEGO Car, it's small and you can add so many details on it. I've done some Tiny Turbos MOCs, so here it is... Let's start with my very first Tiny Turbo creation, Orcar: Orca Car: Orcar by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr The second one, a Hatchback Racer: Hatchback Racer by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr Then get low with this Slance, Slammed or Stanced Car: Slance by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr Got into a concept theme, a Concept Buggy and it's ready for Off-Roading! Concept Buggy by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr And lastly, a Concept Semi Truck: Concept Semi Truck by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr Okay, that's just some of my Tiny Turbos creations, hope you enjoy it! You can see some information about these models in my Blog!
  23. [MOC] Speed Champions 75877 alternate models

    I have been very pleasantly surprised that it's possible to build creative alternates from the Speed Champions line. I thought that the SC models are highly puspose build but obviously bricks are just bricks and it's always possible to have creative fun :) Here are some 75877 Mercedes AMG set alternates: 1. Drift car 2. pick up 3. SUV Thanks for watching!
  24. This is my mod of the Mystery Machine. I think LEGO did a great job with the set but I wanted the van to be able to fit all of the gang. The sides no longer open but the van has doors that open in back. The interior is chock full of detective gear and can fit 3 figs in the front and two in the back. More pics can be found here. Let me know what you think!
  25. An alternate from 31014: Power Digger set, a Post-Apocalyptic Car. It's an old MOC actually, but I've made a new render of it... Post-Apoc - 31014 Alt (with Instruction) by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr I’ve created an Instruction for this model, if you’re interested to create this model click here for the instruction (it’s free!).
