Bond Bug [V4]
This one is the final update of my favorite moc, the Bond Bug.
About this creation

Also now on Lego Ideas
Thanks for supporting!



History


The idea of the Bond Bug was to produce a car for the masses, with a futuristic design. Its concurrent was the Austin Mini. Designed by Tom Karen (Ogle Design), it was produced more than 2000 times between 1970 and 1974. The little 4 cylinder was a cracker (faster accelerating than the mini), but the price not (more than the mini). That’s why production stopped in 74.


Modifications


~ Are updated ~

  • The colour (right one now)

  • The canopy (it fits perfectly now)

  • The back wheelbase/track (larger; makes it look better)

  • Lots of details, including the stripes, the air intake, a detailled underneath, new wheelarches, new doors (detachable) and an updated interior

  • Older Versions here: Version 1 and Version 2

Quoting El Barto ! Nifty build! Never seen one before. Surprised they weren't popular in Italy. I bet they'd drive on the sidewalk pretty well!
Thanks a lot! Sadly, they have not been exported ...

Quoting VAkkron (Steve) I love that shot on the road. Do you use LDD for your models?
Thanks ! Yes, everything so far I did on the computer is made with LDD. Is there another programm?

Quoting Sven Jagdmann Ach Yann, das ist wieder ein sehr gelungenes Update :) Da sind wir uns echt ähnlich. Bin auch immer wieder am ausprobieren und testen ob meine Modelle nicht noch besser werden können. Hab ja noch eine kleine idee wie du den Rahmen der Tür schliessen könntest, aber in LDD ja leider nicht umsetzbar. Vllt hattest du da auch schon ne Idee und LDD hat dich gebremst. Mach weiter so, ist echt schön geworden! Viele Grüße, Sven
Vielen Dank Sven! Das kann wohl sein ;-) Leider wird dieses Auto ein LDD-Konzept Fahrzeug bleiben, da die Umsetzung in die reale Welt nicht funktionnieren kann (weil ich orange teile benutzt habe, die es nicht gibt ...). Für den Rahmen der Tür : explizit werde ich sagen, dass es auf dem echten Bug auch so ist, implizit dann aber dass ich keine andere Möglichkeit habe ;-)

Quoting Sven Jagdmann Ach ja, man sollte mit nem Dreirad nie zu schnell Kurven fahren oder die Fahrspuren wechseln :D :D
Das ist wohl wahr ;-)

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head What a strange footnote in the history of the automotive industry. I can tell a lot of careful planning and design went in to this to make one that is so accurate yet so small. Great work!
Haha that's true! Thanks!

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe This must be at least your third edition of this car. A very nice MOC, but I think you need different (smoother) tyres!
Thanks Henrik! Glad you liked it. For the wheels: I didn't found fitting smooth tyres. Slicks does not work, and the other wheels/tyre are too small or too big. Sorry ;-)

Quoting Oran Cruzen Great work of Lego "Bond Bug" creationism!
Thanks Oran!

Quoting Henrik Jensen You did an excellent job on your latest update to this weird car, and it really looks amazingly accurate.
Thanks a lot Henrik!
Quoting Henrik Jensen Stability must have been a major isue with this car, since it managed to roll over on a straight desert road :-)
Haha there was a bit of a breeze ...
