MegaMOC 2014
MegaMOC 2014. (2014-12-22; Additional photos added.) "A Day at the Races". Le Mans Series Racing.
About this creation
Not much time has passed since I showed the last vehicles built for this diorama. -But much has changed since then. Almost all of them has received "personalized" decals.
The design, printing, cutting and fitting of so many stickers has taken more than a week. I am tired of stickers!
More than a 100 minifigs has been "configurated" and placed onto the diorama.

***

First, a visit to the boxes.

The diorama shows 4 teams, each with two boxes. (You must imagine that there are many more teams, but LEGO-resources are scarse...)



Heavy partying going on on the most of the balconies.





A view to the boxes from the other side of the straight.



***

The Plaza.

With the Safety Car standing by. (I think it is going out just at this moment!)
There is also a big-screen live pictures of the race.
I borrowed my daughters MP4-player, and loaded it with a continous loop of a 8min long video showing racing, to add to the atosphere with real images and roarings sounds.
(Probably a bit annoying to my neighbours at the Expo, but heavenly sounds in MY ears...)



The local TV6 broadcasting van is parked nearby too, and the (in)famous Loretta Legs is just now doing one of her interviews. Most of her male audience only bear with her for mainly two big reasons...



Next, we have the main race control building, with administrative offices and tower.
There is a VIP party going on at the terasse. (Elvis is in the building)



On the winners podium, an event is taking place, with famous movie star presence.



***

The chicane.

Shortly after the starting-line, the cars a funnelled through a chicane, and some of the best tribune seats are located near this, from which the spectators can see almost all of the action.
The cars are using the curbs to cut off the corners, but during the Expo this situation was continously corrected by hundreds of small childrens hands, which put the cars back "correctly" on the track. Oh, such innocence... ;-)



Todays event has drawn a full crowd!



***

The accident.

Always prone to accidents, today is no exception for this chicane; a car has run off the tracks. (or pushed, or maybe just a little "nudge". Nudging is what racing is all about, you know...)



The rescue vehicles and service personal are already busy cleaning up, and extinguishing the fire from the car.
The driver certanly looks upset by the ordeal. -Or maybe he is just worred about the horse-sized needle the medic is preapring to use...



A helicopter view of the zone.



***

Overviews.

Talking about helicopter view. Time to "break" the illusion, and show the whole size of the diorama.





The whole thing. MOCpages wont show high resolution photos, but you can see the same photos in high resolution in Flickr.



***

The Expo.
This was shown in Granollers (Barcelona), at the annual HispaLUG Expo which was celebrated 29th and 30th of November, 2014.
The photo below was taken duirng a rare quiet spell; most of the time the show was totally full of visitors.



***

Tecnical info; 10 bp long. 2,5 bp deep.
Blue sky-backdrop is 50cm high. (not Lego)

Thanks for watching!


Extra! Extra!
New bonus photo added:

(Most credit to builder "popider" for these two cars!)

Another Extra!
Here´s a link to fellow HispaLUG member "celesmen"´s video of the diorama. (Thanks man!)

Edit;
Got on "Across MOCpages" on 2014-12-8 (European date-format ;-) with 71 smilies. It was there until 2015-12-15. It left with 90 smilies. (Thanks guys!)


Edit 2014-12-22; Additional photos added;

I wanted to show some of the sticker-work done on the cars, but the photos didnt come out well at all. Anyway, here are some;













A champagne-scene was finally added;


Thanks for watching

Something just hit me - now that LEGO® is releasing its own similiar-scale-racing-genre with "Speed Champions", I think its time to update this moc with a bunch of "real" cars and "famous" racing-drivers etc.... :P At least the two new 911's and that 458 GT2 set is fitting in quite good to be honest.... Right? ;)

Oh you're welcome :-) You should be happy with that roof, It looks great! I recently found i only had a few good buildings for my planned city, so i have taken an interest in lego 'architecture' of all kinds. About the new updates: That audi is cool, i didn't notice the front until just now. Great work on that!

Now, we're familiar with your HUGE dioramas. I'm amazed by the final result. This subject proved that you can set to a high level, the amount of details. Loved the idea of MP4 to add some realistic modern stuff and the fantastic work on stickers.I easily can imagine this week of yours when I spend long time on my plastic model planes. A brilliant tribute to Lego large dios.

The bonus pic is really cool. Looks nearly like there are real race cars battling for positions :) The video adds alot of race track feel due to the background sounds. Very very cool! Too bad that you ran out of tires.

Quoting Jake Grahn One word....EPIC. I'm speechless. Very nice job, and are there a few Radical SR3's I spot?
Thanks. I admit that they look like SR3, but they are in fact supposed to be LMP2´s. (or the equivalent some 10 years ago). In any event they are ficticious...

Quoting Builder Allan Those buildings are really well done, i like the accurate 'modern/industrial' look you achieved there. A couple of other things i noticed were the slanted roof over the main building, the control tower, the fuel line mounts and those birch trees next to the main building.
Thanks for noticing that! -I was beginning to think nobody paid attention to the big job it was to create the buildings too. Indeed; The slanted roof over the boxes is somethign I am very happy with!

I can almost smell the petrol! Thanks for taking us there Henrik :-) I could soak up all the detail and atmosphere here for a long time.

Quoting Henrik Jensen It all really goes up to a higher level where one feel the excitement and atmosphere at such a race. My favorite scene is the Spanish Hornet team changing wheels,
The sounds from the MP4-player also helps quite a bit ;-) One of the major "problems" of the moc, is the incoherence between the cars and the boxes. They are not "in sync"... :-/

  December 2, 2014
Quoting Sven Jagdmann I told you so, i told you so, i, i, i, i told you so. Only thing i miss a bit: some tire walls. This is now my absolute favorite Moc from you. Love it!
I´m glad you found the tire walls. I would have made LOTS more, but ran out of tires. (I obviously preferred to make CARS with the tires that I have!)
 I made it 
  December 2, 2014
Quoting Dennis B What do you think of the TLGs new upcoming "Speed Champions" series? I think they will have the same scale like your cars.
They look nice, but they use new pieces and certain details are made only with stickers. Not really what I would call nice building.

Gorgeous Racing diorama! It all really goes up to a higher level where one feel the excitement and atmosphere at such a race. Your struggle with the decals have definitely not been in vain, it looks so good. My favorite scene is the Spanish Hornet team changing wheels, those poor wheel-boys probably have sore legs. :-)

Yeeeess! I was hoping this would be LeMans! Amazing work, it looks like some of the late 1980s/1990 Lego catalogues when they had their own street race sets for the Town range - only better of course : ) 10/10 - top stuff!!

I told you so, i told you so, i, i, i, i told you so *singing & dancing* ;) I really enjoy this fantastic Moc because it represents one of my highlights of motorsports every year. It's fully loaded with cool details! All the little scenes besides the track, the pretty cool racing cars with the stickers, the rescuers working on the accident scene and all the stuff which is going on in the boxes are absolute fantastic. The working screen is a very cool addition ;) Only thing i miss a bit: some tire walls. This is now my absolute favorite Moc from you. Love it!

Very cool MOC, very cool race track! The cars look very great and I easily could identify a few of them, like the R8 or Ferrari, without seeing them in your previous posts (maybe I will do now). What do you think of the TLGs new upcoming "Speed Champions" series? I think they will have the same scale like your cars.
