Built in a bracket-and-tile style. 7w, fits 3 whole figs (1 chauffeur, 1 bodyguard, 1 movie star). Detachable roof, convertible version available. Wheels are spinning. There is a steering wheel. No paint, no custom chrome (so far ...). Sorry, no openable doors.
Two things were important here: The existence of suitable whitewall tires (see workshop) and a windscreen that is lowered into the body to get a nicer silhouette. This weakens the structure, but due to the brackets the frame is quite stable and can be used for similar cars at this scale.
Great work of Lego "Cadillac" creationism! Hey Joe, I missed the 2 year MOCiversary for this! Also missed it the first time around, so sorry! I forgot if you answered but what are you thinking about the new parts from Speed Champions? Any possible redo's?
Sorry for the delay guys! @Anthony: Thanks a lot. Not so easy to say. If there is already the platform designing and building the car as such takes about two weeks (couldn't even guess how many hours). A completely new design like the Tumbler may take at least three weeks. @Malte: Thx! @alex: Thanks a lot for your kind comment! Well, not every car has new techniques in it but I still try to find ways to squeeze as many figs as possible into not too ugly rides. @Julien: Thanks a lot, glad you like it.
@Luke: Thanks a lot! I think 7w is something like the "natural width" for minifig cars plus it has many advantages. Nearly anything that works with a 6w car works with a 7w, too. You only need quite a few jumper plates ... ;-) @David: Many thanks, glad you like the interior, too! @James: Thanks a lot! @Nils: Thanks bud! You're right about the period, I was thinking of a 59/60/61 style car. The outer tires are motorcycle tires. The tight fit only results from the Technic pin connector which widens the inner tire a bit.
Wow, that's very "stylish", a cool (late) 1950s look! The lowered windscreen is very clever and works really well. Great job, pal! :-)) P.S.: Which "outer" tires did you use, the all terrain tires for Tiny Turbo rims or the motorcycle tires?
Wow, thanks a lot. And MOCpages seems to work a lot better now, too, I can see some pics again. :-) @Aaden, Sven, Chris: Thanks a lot buddies! @Parrington: Thanks mate! Still lots of work to do at this scale. ;-) Elk: Many thanks! Clearly one of the advantages of the 7w building style. @Topsy: Thanks a lot, glad you like it! It can be seen as a suggestion to replace the original car from 10232 Palace Cinema, too. @Tris: Thank you! @Josh: Many thanks! @TLNA: Glad you like it! @Steffen: Thanks pal! @Bill: Thank you! I didn't know that, got to do a little research ... ;-) @Henrik: Thanks a lot! Well, concerning the shaping you don't have the same possibilities here compared to the usual brickbuilt, massive cars. This is rather a rolling frame with some tiles around (some figs are supposed to fit, the wheels are supposed to be within the body, not at the edges, they are supposed to spin), so compromises have to be met ... Hopefully you recognized the non-painted whitewall tires, too ;-) @Z, Alex, Gabor, Loek: Many thanks guys! @Frank: Many thanks! Yes, my dear friend Brucewaynelego-Toyshansolo (http://www.mocpages.com/home.php/22393) sent me the new moviestar fig which looks really really great in my opinion. Make sure you get your hands on some of those new policemen, they are fantastic, too! Although you'd rather throw away all policemen you have so far ... ;-) @Joe, Starscream: Many thanks guys!
