MG MIDGET MKIII -- AUSTIN-HEALEY SPRITE MKIV --"SPRIDGET"
U.S. Specification MG MIDGET MKIII--Complete with Abingdon Pillow!
About this creation

Well, after several iterations over the years (or Marques) I've finally reached a level of satisfactory completion with this build. A few months of dawdling have kept me from uploading pictures, but I finally reached the consensus that I should contribute my creation to the public forum.



My inspiration to build the automobile came from my father's Tartan-Red 1969 Austin-Healey Sprite; I would have called it that however the front grille looks more like an early A-series-motor MG Midget.



I hope these pictures do it justice and--to anyone actually reading this--I hope you enjoy this Spridget!

I'm trying to recreate this and was wondering what pieces you used for the bumper and how you got the 1x6 windshield centered on the 1x5 strip of dots

Quoting Oran Cruzen Great work of Lego "SPRIDGET" creationism! Sorry my comment is not as long as your title! LOL
Thanks. The long title has helped to gain views because of the longer list of key words.

Quoting Clayton Marchetti Beautiful job! Love the shaping. Brilliantly done!
Thank you! I'll have you know that it has not always looked like this; it was originally 6-wide and roughly the same length. I increased the width to 7-wide and that seemed to be an adequate decision in respect to the car's proportions. This allowed me to not only get the proportions correct, but also allowed me to add more detail, as I could rearrange the internal components. Again, thank you for your interest!

Quoting Nick Barrett Lovely Spridget, brings it all back (I used to drive one back when it was possible to fold myself into it. You don't so much drive it as wear it! Lovely little car :-)
Yeah I've always argued that its more comfortable for the passenger, as they don't have to scrunch up their legs to compensate for the pedals. But being in the driver's seat, naturally, is more engaging. Thank you for your comment, it brings me joy knowing that others enjoy my representation of this car.
