  1. Hi, guys! I know that, there is February yet and we're before March release, but let's start new topic! So, at first I want to say that 2023 wave is amazing. New brand, new mudguards, new windscreens! Whoah! And there are my speculation/cars I want to see in Speed Champions 2024: ~ Porsche 911 GT2 RS Clubsport 25 ~ Porsche Taycan ~ Audi e-tron GT ~ BMW M6 ~ BMW M4 GT3 & BMW M3 1991 ~ Ferrari 499p LMH ~ Ford Focus RS 2021 ~ Honda Civic Type R ~ Cadillac LMDH What do you think about my cars? What cars would you like to see? Show your speculation/wishlist.
  2. Update: See final model in the last post of this thread. This is a scale 1:20 (Legoland Miniland scale) BMW M8 GTE. I built this car for Le Mans in 2018 and brought it to the race for some pictures because, why not. The car was initially built from pictures and size information available before the big race. This is why it has a big ///M-logo on the roof. As always I have been using Griddy for the design and this was the setup I was using during the initial design: Stickers and updated pictures became available shortly before Le Mans and I had just enough time to remove the ///M logo and get stickers made before leaving for the race. There was no time for a nice picture of the car before leaving, but here it is right in front of the real deal: And we were also allowed out on the track itself on the Friday before the race. Here it is together with the other GTE PRO race cars next to the historical Dunlop bridge Now. The thread title says [WIP] instead of [MOC]. This is because I have only been spending 3 weeks on the car before it was brought to Le Mans in 2018. Now I want to improve it before making building instructions as has been done with most of the other cars (only the Vantage and M8 are currently not done). One of the details I want to improve is the front. The "hood" on the real car has a significant slope. In the LEGO model that should translate into a lowering of the headlights. In order to do this I have reduced the height of the lower assembly from 2 to 1 brick in height: I also want to see if it is possible to make a more realistic headlight design. Option 1 is this one with 1x1 plates with tooth in trans black, while another option could be what you see on the other side: I am personally partial toward the original headlight design as it looks more "BMW like", but I would love for others to give their input and nudge me in the right direction of this design which has been bothering me for... well 2 years now. Update on July 7, 2020 I have decided on continuing with a version that combines the trans black side as shown above with the original headlight design. This allows for the inside of the headlights to curve together, while the outside remains "BMW-like". Continuing with the sides. These are mostly carried over from the original design. The main changes here are the lower black trim pieces and the sides being pushed half a plate outward. The height is a massive change, as can be seen by placing the two cars with their noses next to one another One of my main challenges with the front is to get the fenders right. I might add 1x6 tiles over the wheels to recreate the sloping hood of the real car. The center of the hood also needs a complete overhaul with the angular ///M lines while maintaining the aero elements. The next update will most likely first be in 2 weeks, but any suggestions are as always welcome. Update on August 2, 2020 The new model is complete. It is now time to compare it to the previous model and the real deal. Starting with the front. Here The new model has the lower projectors reduced in height. This allows the whole nose to be lower, but also requires a sloping front end. I think the new nose is more accurate, and the change to the hood and fenders is acceptable. Ideally I would have smoother slope. The windscreen now contains a windscreen wiper (good), but my attempt at using wedge plates and staggered 1x2 black tiles has resulted in some unsightly gaps (bad) Moving to the top view, the roof has received additional detailing, such as antennae, grilles and an intake as on the real race car. Unfortunately my attempt at using a SNOT roof has caused the white lines to be too close together, and upper line of the side windows no longer flows as nicely. The graphics on the nose have been simplified. I prefer the simplified version, as the old one was a bit too blocky with the coloring. The colored lines neat the mounts for the rear wing have been reduced, as BMW updated the livery a bit before the cars raced at Le Mans. Even though the old version looks cooler, the new one is more accurate. The rear is almost all new. The design of the diffuser has been updated after clearer pictures arose, allowing me to build it more accurately. The size and shape of the rear lights is also more accurate now, while there is a small upper lip in the bodywork which has been included from the real car (not visible in these two pictures) The shaping of the front fenders and how they join the center of the car has been redesigned to be less blocky. This also allowed proper repositioning of the side mirrors. I will get back to the drawing, I mean, building board.
  3. Aston Martin Vantage AMR LMGTE PRO race cars from Le Mans of 2018 Building instructions for car #95 and #97, respectively: The difference between the two models is down to the stickers and color of the trim. However, since the 2x2 wedge plates used in the holes of the nose are not available in green, I had to redesign that section for the #97 car. The mounts for the diffusers also differ due to the availability of 1x2 x 2x2 brackets in green. The main reason for why it has taken me over 2 years to finish this car (the first prototype was built in March of 2018) would be the front: But the many revisions of the front has also allowed me to make many iterations of the other details, such as how the rear fenders are shaped: The fanciest part of the bodywork, however, has to be the single beam rear light. I have tried to recreate it as faithfully as possible in LEGO: Here is the first nearly-done version: As you can see, most details have been reworked since March 2018 where I started building this model. Back then we only had renders of the livery and it wasn't yet revealed that headlights would change from yellow to white. The race driver is Nicki Thiim, who was recently seen greeting the car after returning from Virtual Racing: Now I just have to finish the M8 and my project of building all Le Mans GTE PRO race cars from 2018 will finally come to an end.
  4. The model is finally complete and I have made building instructions for all 4 cars in both red and dark red. I am still not sure if the best color is red or dark red, hence the choice of color. Here are the links for building instructions of the red cars: Ford #66 Ford #67 Ford #68 Ford #69 SEE BELOW FOR ORIGINAL POST This video shows all the details of the first prototype and I even take it apart to show how it is constructed. I want to build all the LMGTE PRO cars for Le Mans this year in the same scale as in Miniland in Legoland (scale 1:20). Last year I made the Corvette, which means that I "only" have to build 5 completely new cars. One of the cars that compete in this class is the Ford GT. There will be four of these at Le Mans (two from the American and two from the British racing teams). This is the very first prototype. All details are subject to change, and I intend on making at least 5 versions before the final model is ready. From the front there are some details which I would like to improve: - The front grille opening should be wider. - The headlights should have more blue parts to surround them. - The headlights could be more curved - The white scoops seen from the top of the front should be more extensive. - The crossaxle in the front axle could be half a stud shorter. - The livery below the doors should be more "triangular" with the door sills being sloped. - There could be fewer studs around the rear wheels. Moving on to the rear: - The white racing stripe should not be separate from the body work - even in the rear. - The grilles around the rear "window" should be in line Here are a couple of additional shots: Side: And top view: Here is the collage I have made in order to get the details as correct as possible (with additional top-view image available in the reddit thread I made for it here The "griddy" picture is based on these dimensions: Length: 4763mm => 30 studs Width: 2004mm => 12.5 studs Height: 1110mm => 56mm Wheelbase: 2710mm => 17 studs Please feel free to come with criticism. I will even appreciate comments without suggestions for improvement, such as "I don't like the headlights" - it tells me that I should look into that detail.
  5. The car is finally done with building instructions and all! The model can easily be modified to be the #7, #8 or #9 car - simply exchange the side mirrors and number plates (if you build it with stickers) The model is by far one of the most complex cars I have ever built. You can see all the details in the instructions: The most challenging details are by far the triangular sections of the livery. While these are stickers on the real race car, I want to have as much being brick built as possible. This is also the reason why the model looks decent even without stickers. I hope you enjoy the model and instructions. This is probably the last model in a while for which I will make stickers in the instructions. I have completely underestimated the effort involved! BELOW IS THE ORIGINAL WIP POST: . I want to build a Toyota TS050 with the low downforce package to be used at Le Mans this year. We will see this package for the first time at the race at SPA this weekend. First I have to determine the size. I'm currently considering 2 scales, so please give me other suggestions if you have any. The first scale is 1:20 (LEGOLAND scale). It is proven and well known. I have experience building in this scale, but it might not be large enough to capture the details that I would want. The other scale would be where the Porsche GT3 wheels fir (roughly 1:10). This scale allows for all details at a high level, but sacrifices the windscreen and might take too long to build: I would like to have the model ready for Le Mans this year (hence the low downforce package) My goal is to have a non-functional model where emphasis is on adding visual details. Experienced builders and enthusiasts. Which scale do you recommend? I will use this thread to show the complete design and build process. Feedback (both positive, constructive and "Boo - Toyota will never win") is welcome. Update I have started designing it in scale 1:20 The base dimensions are: Length 4650mm => 29 studs Width 1900mm => 12 studs Height 1050mm => 16.4 plates ~ 5.5 bricks. I'm using this as my design sketch. It is made using Griddy and... mspaint :)
  6. Update! I have updated the model substantially and made building instructions Instructions here: See my last post for more images of the latest updated model This is Porsche's entry into the LMP1 Hybrid class of Le Mans 2017. It will most likely be either this car or the Toyota TS050 Hybrid that wins the big race next weekend. This model is in scale 1:20. Shown here is the #1 car driven by Neel Jani, Nick Tandy and André Lotterer. Notice the "24H Le Mans" plackard on the side indicating the Le Mans trim. It will be easy to change to the #2 car (the other Porsche 919 Hybrid at Le Mans) by simply changing the three parts with the "1" to "2". This car can not be uploaded to LEGO Ideas because of the ongoing LEGO/Porsche collaboration. It would have been cool with a "The hybrid LMP1 cars of Le Mans 2017" project. For WIP pictures of this model, see the Toyota TS050 Hybrid topic:

  8. With the 24 Hours of Le Mans approaching this weekend and seeing some other LMP cars on here recently, I decided to post as well! This is the Audi R18 in 2016 colors, on its last race year, more description below. I've been fascinated with the Le Mans 24 hour Endurance race since I was a little boy. My father shared his passion for auto racing with me and naturally, I also got hooked! After recently visiting an World Endurance Championship race this year and seeing a life sized Porsche 919 made half out of Lego and half out of a real car, I couldn't resist designing my own (although not quite as big). I know there are already a few current Lego sets that feature racecars like Speed Champs, but I wanted to design one that had a higher level of detail and really showed off the beautiful design of the LMP class. This design was done using the studless technique to keep the aerodynamic feel of an actual car. It is quite sturdy and uses standard Lego bricks/panels/slopes without requiring specialized body moldings. The car measures 11 inches (28 cm) long x 5 (12.7 cm) inches wide x 3.5 inches (8.9 cm) tall and is equivalent to 1:16 scale. It is just a bit bigger than minifig scale, although a minifig will fit inside the cockpit after removing the roof which easily comes off of two studs. The car can roll on a flat surface and has about 4 mm of ground clearance. I added racing numbers on the side panels and front for fun. Obviously more stickers could be added to make the car look even more like an actual car highlighting all the team sponsors, but I chose to keep the look clean.
