My first decent car build in quite a while now. Not the easiest of builds and the doors almost made me quit before I finished!
About this creation
The front. I used this vehicle as my guide and colour inspiration: http://www.bjmotors.biz/2009ViperSRT10ACRSnakeSkinGreen_0469.html
We don't have these cars here in Australia as they cannot be registered for road usage (and I've never seen one in the flesh at a race track), so I had to do the whole build based off pictures on the internet.
For some reason the roof looks crooked in this pic. It's not really though (I fail at photography!).
The rear. I had a hard time deciding whether to add the spoiler or not. The blueprints I used didn't have a spoiler pictured, but the one in the link above did. In the end I went with the spoiler. Looks really chunky in the pics but it's really not that bad.
Imagine there is a pane of glass here, covering up the boot!
V10 engine, just bursting with the goodness of 10 cylinders! The main air intake vent lines up with the bonnet.
Hey look! the funky upside-down cheese wedge doors actually open! Did I mention that the standard plate door hinge piece doesn't come in lime green? I literally spent over 8 hours trying to come up with a door design that was both functional and having the proper Viper shape. Plus I had to hide the black hinge that I ended up using. I ended up with a design that is a little funky and makes the doors quite thick (3 studs wide!!!), but it works... kind of.
Boot opens but doesn't stay open without finger-force! Probably would stay open if it didn't have a huge spoiler applying so much downforce!!!! ;-)
The top. It's kind of black!
Not pictured is the interior (because all my shots came out blurry). I did however manage to make a 7 stud-wide (I only had 8 studs to use between the chunky doors!) module of 2 seats with a centre part containing the gear stick and handbrake lever. Also included is the steering wheel on the left hand side (being a US car) and a couple of guages. Also includes working drivetrain and live-axle (not pictured). Not sure if these cars use a differential or live axle (probably a diff), but I included it as an experiment for future car builds as I want to start including more functionality.
Thanks for the comments guys. I know my photos are not the best. I only have a cheap point and shoot camera and I'm not very good at getting the best shots possible. I'll try and take better photos of my next car. I'm on work holidays at the moment so I should have another build finished soon.
