  1. 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.
  2. 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 https://www.reddit.com/r/weclego/comments/82rygj/working_collage_for_lego_ford_gt_in_scale_120/ 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.
  3. 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: https://brickhub.org/i/428 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 :)
  4. Update! I have updated the model substantially and made building instructions Instructions here: http://c-mt.dk/instructions/models_car-Porsche919.htm 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:

  6. 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.
