Here it is. I always wanted to built this car, because I'm a big fan of it. So 2 weeks ago I exploded my Bond Bug to come up with this new car.
As clarkson would say :"Let's see it on a German point of view". The Porsche I'm presenting is a 1.7l 4 cylinder.
> a 3 cylinder WORKING engine based in the middle (I only have 3)
> connected to a 3 gear manual gearbox. The gears can be changed from the interior of the car.
> This all connected to the right back wheel.
> it has a working direction with a working direction
> and working retractable headlights witch you can extend or retract with help of a switch near the steering wheel.
!!! I JUST WANT TO PRECISE THAT I created a gearbox without the special parts you gain when you buy a car by the Lego compagny. I spent a lot of time to create and perfectionize it to make it work. In fact I only had some cogwheels.
!!! It is the same for the steering. No special parts too. I used simply a cogwheel and an endless screw.
Otherwise, the body was quite simple to built because it is a very squared car
For those who doesn't know this car: it is a coproduction of VW and Porsche built in the beinning of the 70s. It was made to replace the 356 and to offer a cheaper car to young people ( the 901 and 911 was to expensive). Now it becames a very popular youngtimer because of his very 70ish design and performance.
Thank you for watching and please rate and comment.
First of all, thank you for commenting my Minor Traveller. Then I went to your page to see what you were doing, and wasn´t dissapointed. The fact that you are interested in older and peculiar cars is great. I think yuor Porche 914 is fabulous, but also the Little 6 wide Bond Bug is great.
A very cool model and quite rare here on MOCpages, too (I count 3 plus 1 LDD model, now). The functions are very clever, especially the tilting headlights. The roof line seems to be a little high, though. The bow part on the rear pillar is cool, but too high compared to the rest of the car. A combination of slopes and cheese wedges could work, there. The rest is perfect. Great job! :-))
