An 8-wide model of the Ferrari F60 Formula One race car from 2009.
About this creation
Lets take a look at one of my older MOCs. Back in 2009, I set out to create a minifig scale model of the current Ferrari Formula One car -- The F60. I even had stickers from "8168 Ferrari Victory" that I could use to make my model more accurate. Unfortunately, a few of the stickers that I put on this model back in 2009 have either started to peel or have come off completely.
^ Here you can see the whole model. Still shiny after more than three years =)
^ I went through a lot of designs for the front wing, and this is what I liked best.
^ The rear. Note that little piece on the underside of the wing. I don't know what it's called, it's just a thin 4x4 plate with a hinge thingy on the bottom. I used this piece to hold those 1x1 slopes in place.
^ I'm really happy with how the air intake turned out -- it matches the real thing in all the right places. Unfortunately, I couldn't think of a good way to represent the camera that goes on top.
^ The sidepods are probably the least accurate part of the model. They just aren't shaped quite right . . . but this is really the best I could do at the time. It's not BAD, just not as good as I wish it could have been. It's hard to get the details right in such a small scale.
^ I designed this car to fit one of those "driver body" pieces from the old Drome Racers line. I have two of these bodies from "4593 Zero Hurricane & Red Blizzard". The helmet is from "6546 Slick Racer", one of my first Lego sets.
^ Next to the real car. I perhaps should have made the model a bit bigger to keep the wheels from looking slightly oversized, but at least it looks pretty cool this way. Comments are appreciated! Thanks for viewing!

Another great one! I particularly like the profile. All around this looks great. Keep up the fantastic work! :-)
Thanks for the support! In the future I would love to build more large scale models (possibly replicas), but I'll need to acquire some more pieces. Most of the bricks in my Lego collection are fairly outdated at the moment =P
