A solid black 8-wide Formula One MOC, based on my F60 MOC and inspired by the black Formula Gran Turismo '04 from GT4.
About this creation
If you've ever played Gran Turismo 4, you may be familiar with the prize for 100% game completion: A solid black Formula One car. A lack of racing livery will somehow make an F1 car look even more striking, as the entire car becomes one solid shape. For this reason, I thought it would be fun to build a new model based on my Ferrari F60 MOC, but this time in all black.
This entire MOC is made of nothing but black pieces, inside and out. The shape is most closely derived from a 2009 Formula One car, but obviously it has not been made to match anything specifically.
^ I think that this rough take on a 2009 car actually has good proportions - I actually like low, wide front wings at this point.
^ No brake light on this model, that would have been too red. And as usual, I used that same piece to hold the rear wing together.
^ Profile shot. The body sits below the wheels, which looks exaggerated, but a few of the 2009 cars actually did this to some degree.
^ I had a hard time manually focusing my camera to capture a gloss black model, which is most obvious in this photo.
^ Even the driver is 100% gloss black. The head inside is solid black too. I'm using a "driver body" piece from the old Drome Racers line. I have two of these bodies from "4593 Zero Hurricane & Red Blizzard".
^ Here it is next to the Ferrari F60 MOC. Don't you hate it when your shadow passes you on the straightaway? Comments are appreciated! Thanks for viewing!
