After a whole year that passed in taking care of a newborn and slowly making small steps in progress of making this one I finally finished this ONE. Yes only this one for the whole year and fair enough, it has been only the most complicated vehicle I've ever built. Not just because of the number of parts in this color but because of the complexity of the built itself. Anyway, the minute I saw this vehicle in one of Indiana Jones movies (fans will know instantly which one) I said to myself I have to build it and in colors that actually match the era in which the car was made. Here I am again. 3rd model from 1930's. The glorious Auburn with a nickname Duesenberg (the designer). I have been asked about the size of my vehicles so here they are approximately L=67cm W=25cm H=22cm And of course the cover picture shows my model in an actual movie it appears, only originally it faced the other way. :))
About this creation



Some backside views with backseat cover and lower picture is without the cover.






Everything opened. Unlike my red Merc which is about the same size as this one both bonnet doors can be opened at the same time.


Here the storage compartment is shown alongside the pictures of the seats. There was a confusing issue here with building all that because online I haven't found a version of it that had back seats. Only in the movie back seats existed for this particular model. Also in the movie version there is no storage compartment on the right side but on all other web pics there is one but you guess, no back seats. As visible I made a custom version and I included everything.




Up - the right side of the engine, Down - the left side.


Of course there is the roof thing and it works both with back seat cover and without.


And now you can see that proven here.

Fantastic creation. And big one! I really like everything on this car. From curves (and complexity of it for me), interior, how everything can be opened... And the engine too! Great work!

Quoting Vinny Turbo Magnificent ! A real piece of art ! Great to see you back. It would be great if you could post this on a Flickr account so that we could see even better all the details. Congratulations on being a father ! A big life change, eh...
First thanx to you and all the rest for lovely comments and I wanted to say that I am on Flickr so check it https://www.flickr.com/photos/veeborg/sets as for being the father - I became so for the second time and that takes a significant amount of time I usually had for the LEGOs :)

Quoting Mrva & Karlo I know how hard is to recreate the curvature of the real deal but you tackled it really well, i really like how you caught every little detail just like the real car. Oh just one thing I like it more with roof up :P
Hey, thanx. The curves were a killer. Every time new detail emerges that denies the last one. Most of the time it was fun, occasionally frustrating! :))

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe How good to see something from you again! It looks absolutly excellent. -In some of the photos it looks almost like a metal model. The colours are indeed well chosen. BTW; Congratz on being a father!
Thanx, man. It feels great to return again. It has been a busy busy year and the busyness don't seem to end. :))
