This buggy is an alternative model of the 31007 set (Power Mech)
About this creation
The buggy is inspired by the VW Beetle based buggies.
The main challenge was to increase the width of the car compared to the pickup truck from the set: the pickup is 6 studs wide, my buggy is 8 and even 10 studs wide (running board).
That's how I managed to increase the width of the car.
Unfortunately it was not possible to use the same construction for the 4 wheels because of the limited set inventory!
Hi again !
At least, I manage to build it. LDD is going crazy with this file (more groups maybe ?). Fun stuff, very enjoyable. I remove the steering wheel so that a Lego Friend girl can "drive" it ! ;-)
Very nice alternate! I like how you widened the fourth wheel different than the others, due to the parts inventory. Usually I don't like asymmetric solutions, but in this case you had to, which is clever and creative. The aesthetics turned out great as well!
