1/2 scale LDD interpretation of the Lego 5571 "Black Cat"
About this creation
5571 is considered to be the best ever Lego Model Team, and one of the best large Lego models of all time. Used models in good condition sell for very expensive prices. Since this model uses some special Lego parts (doors, wheels, etc.) it is not practical to build it as a MoC at the true scale. I wondered if it may be possible to replicate the look and feel of 5571 at a smaller scale using more common parts and this is what I came up with:
Because it is roughly half the size of the original the Black Cat, I call it the "Black Kitten":
No need for the zzzFabuland shovel at this scale, the ubiquitous minifig shovel works just fine:
Fake diesel V8 under the hood:
Adjustable recline for driver's seat, and minifig size bed in the sleeper cabin:
Yes, the coffee cup and the reading light are still there...
