Another vintage car with a different fender solution
About this creation
back from vacation and preparing for a Lego convention in Berlin next week I just want to present you this new vintage car. It's derived from the "Summer WIP" vintage car which is not yet finished. The idea with both is to tilt the mudguard section to get relatively smooth fenders. Hope you like it.
Note #1: I will comment on all the MOCs I have missed and have already begun, but this takes some time ;-) Glad to be back!
Note #2: There is a photo of the bottom which shows how it is done (see below).
Hey, I am interested in building your vintage speedster, for personal use only, and I would like to know what size wing pieces you used for the middle, and how you assembled it. If you have any tips on where to get parts or anything, I would greatly appreciate them. Thx.
Quoting Jim Morrissey
Great work! Do you think you could post LDD instructions for this? If not, then a picture of the bottom will work. Thanks!
Many thanks Jim! Sorry, no LDD, but hopefully there will be a new MOC within a few days, then I will add a photo of the bottom of this one, too. It's not that complicated, perhaps you ought to know that the second layer of the running boards consists of two minifig stands; the lower half of the bumper of two nozzles: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=60849 A droid arm is fixed at the handle to carry the headlight. Maybe this helps ...
Thx guys. @Scott: Thanks a lot. Concerning the fender: You're welcome! @Gabor: Thanks a lot, very glad you like it! @Aaden: Thanks a lot Aaden, nice to hear that! @Nils: Thanks, buddy! - Great, I'd be very glad!
I'm an 8 wide builder myself, but I really admire how some people can make even better cars at a smaller scale. The fender design is really sleek, never thought of that before. I might borrow it if I ever make a car from this era. Great job, probably the sleekest 6 wide I have ever seen!
Thanks a lot guys, glad you like it that much! @Mihe: Thank you! @Altum: Many thanks! @aitor: Thx. Great idea, but the cockpit does not exist in that colour. But there will definitely be a colour mix ... @Sven: Thanks, buddy! Regarding the convention: It's my very first Lego event and I am very curious! @Elk: Thx! @Chris: Thank you again (since this is inverse). Glad you like it that much! Maybe we can call Officer Stephanie ... ;-) @A: Thx, that's exactly what I was thinking of! @The Lego: Thx, I will do that! @Chris: Thanks a lot! @ Nick: Many thanks! @Steffen: Thank you! @Malte: Thx! @Paulo: Thank you! @Luke: Glad you like it! @Danny: Thanks a lot! @Senator: Many thanks! @Joe: Many thanks mate, glad you like it! Take a trip to Berlin next weekend, it's straight at the airport hotel. I would be delighted! @H a v l: Glad you like it! @Ben: Thx, I'd be glad to see one from you! @Iain: Thx, but hopefully not! At least, dictators use to sit on the rear seat. Since there is none with this car, there is no room for a dictator ... ;-) @Erik: Thank you! @STC: Thank you, very glad you like it! @Chris: Thanks a lot! Didn't know the expression "to corner the market", now I know. Thanks again Chris! @John: Thx! @Starscream: Very glad you like it that much! @T.: Thx! @Dohoon: Glad you like it! @Tom: Thanks a lot Tom, glad you love it! @Mitchell: Thanks a lot! I have some ideas for a vintage racer, but probably not on this wheelbase. Let's see ...
Hi Marcus. Great to see you back, especially with this little beauty. Loving the headlights and grill area. The front part of the fenders is looking really good, and much cleaner than Summer WIP. Good luck at the convention, I would love to see your creations in the brick.
Nice work Marcus! Defiantly look like a vintage car to me! Maybe try some modifications to this to make it a Vintage Racer! It's only a suggestion, so you don't have to do it. But it's your choice! But back to the speedster, 5/5!
