VW Golf GTi Mk 1
Yes I have built another Golf, but this one is only 6 studs wide.
About this creation
Credit where credit is due – this build was inspired by Sam the First’s Golf . Thanks for the inspiration Sam and I hope you like my subtle changes. I purposely did not use your LDD file as I wanted to come up with my own solutions. I must say using the neck brackets (under the grille) was a brilliant idea and makes the whole front end possible.

Even I haven't had a Golf (being so close to the source). :-)) What I have is two cars on Golf "platforms": My TT Mk 1 is based on a "short" Golf Mk 4 platform (PQ34) and our family car, a Touran, is based on a modified Golf Mk 5/6 platform (PQ35) ;-))

As a saying in Holland says: "better late then never", great one to use for my comments. Anyway, I love it, it looks spot on realism. I love the rubber band for the grille, just legendary. Great job. P.S. do you still have the big red Golf intact? I'd love to see a groupshot.

Quoting David Roberts I always wanted one of these for my first car but had to settle for a Rover 214 instead... I like the rubber band on the front: it makes the grille look perfect.
haha my first car was a yellow Austin mini metro - I called it the yellow submarine :). At least I drive a golf gti (mk 4) now. I have also had a mk2 a few years back.

Hi Nils :). That might just work. I will need to adapt it slightly to cater for the extra half stud the rear needs. thanks for the suggestion :)

Wow, excellent, a great version of the Golf Mk 1 in this scale! Sam's Golf was already very cool, but your one is sub zero! I really like the new rear end, but I'd try to get rid of the 4 studs... Anyway, great job! :-))

Quoting Hot Rod hey! It's me again! : p What about maxster1 kasper's solution for the pillars? I think it turn well! ; ) (link: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/366454 )
Hi Hot Rod. Thanks for the suggestion. I tried this solution early on, but unfortunately it is too wide - 3 studs instead of my 2 studs so it would reduce the rear window. It is also one plate too high. :D

Wooow! Man, this is greatly done. What struck me first is the accurate shape and the tires that fit perfectly what was Golf I. Brilliant idea to work with black bricks. The shape is perfect. A hit!!

Very nice real brick model! the rubber band is a great idea - a logic decision to use that, seen other builders doing it likewise. Adds the extra coolness and important GTI detail! Top Job! love it.

Kudos to Sam for the brilliant design, and of course to you for realising it and putting on your own stamp. A fantastic joint project, the model is one of the best I've seen at this scale.

Quoting Elk Guard Fantastic work, instantly recognisable! I would love to see the inner workings of the one for sure. Like others, not sure the stepped jumpers plates work the best, slopes to match the rear windscreen would have been fine.
Thanks Elk. There are some crazy techniques to create the grille, once I get a moment I will take a photo (exploded view) and post on Flickr. I will let you know :D

Quoting Yann (XY EZ) Amazing creation! As said below, it is one of the most accurate GTIs I've seen so far in Lego at this scale. i've also used a rubber on one of my golf a time ago, and it is for sure the best solution for the grill. Well done!
Thanks Yann. Yes a few people have used the elastic band idea I will check yours out later :D
  January 25, 2015
I'm pretty happy you've done this, so, no, I don't mind at all! Yes, the C-pillar was a major head scratcher for me. Had a small panic, as for some reason the Golf had been deleted from my page....back up, now.

Hi guys thanks for the great comments. Sam - I really hope you dont mind I gave this a go? :). I tried many MANY different options for the c pillars (hinges, cheese, varoius slopes on all angles) but this was the cleanest I could come up with, especially as I made the roof section 5 wide. I am sure someone could come up with a better solution - good luck and I cant wait to see your latest version. Thanks again to everyone who has commented

I can easily recognise this as an MK I Golf. My favourite part would be the grill, and how you've added in the rubber band. Great touch!

Awesome sauce! You've made my day, seeing my creations can inspire one of the people who inspired me to join MOCpages. This is so cool - love the work you did with the roof. Not to sure on the C-Pillars, personally, but other solutions you've made are simply brilliant. Hate to say these things, considering it was inspired by my own work, but what you've done is better then mine, I think. Although I'm redoing the rear as we speak...watch this space. =P

Excellent! It is clear that Sam was/is on to something here. Yours is even better. Still I think there are problems at the back; Too much pixelation, and too many "raingutter" plates where they dont look too good...

Another one!?! Well, I must said: "Another COOL one!" the shape is really good for 6wide, and rims are just perfect (they look so much like original Gti's ones!!! O_O That's almost unbelievable! And I've never paid attention to this before... Shame on me! :p ) By the way I've build 2 mk1's (One is a kind of "replica" of my real one! ; ) ) and an mk2 (with a unique design wheels!!! ;) )at 4wide for months now!!! I must take photos and post!!! ; )
