This car again? This car again.
Also yes I'm still alive ello
About this creation
It's been a while in the making to say the least, but finally the Supra is d o n e
Wait nvm i forgot the wing mirrors
Yes, here we are, another MK4 Toyota Supra, a car that certainly no stranger to the Lego community, this is the 3rd time I've built one. But that's not so much down to having a deep burning love for the supra - is a bit thicc for my liking. Last year I updated my Delta, which was more of a facelift than anything. However i wanted to do a proper update, a total rebuild. And what better model than my aggressively ok Toyota Supra, built in 2013, with incredible features such as a missing engine, and taillights that look liked its melted half way down its arse
But whom'st've is a mk4 Toyota Supra? The Supra is a front engined, RWD Sports Car/GT deriving from the Celica and 2000GT. The supra went through 4 generations, the last easily being one of the most iconic of the 90's japfest golden era. Long gone are the wedgey bois of the previous to generations, the styling of the mk4 was far more rounded, aggressive, and intensely 90's. It was highly anticipated model, an it didn't disappoint. The mk4 was immensely popular, and for good reason. MK4 used yet another inline 6 engine, and what an engine that was. As stock, the 2JZ engine was enough to make the supra as fast is it's other Japanese rivals (such as the 3000gt and 300zx) and even European ones (like the 911 Turbo and Aston DB7). However the engines far more well know for its tuning capabilities, and is one if not the most popular engine among tuners. The Supra itself became very popular for tuning too, and had a star role in Fast and Furious, which made the car even more iconic. Along with gt500 racing and the Tom's Castrol Supra, the Supra is an incredibly famous car
But not an easy one to build. This certainly had its fair share of troubles, especia-ESPECIALLY THE HEADLIGHTS. I have been permanently damaged by those. But this is m favourite and rpoudest work since the Python. I hope you enjoy, this may be the last large scale for a while, I know I've been inactive and slacking recently, hopefully I can still stick around
Thanks for viewing!
Head lights don't look quite right from front on, but the front bumper went together very smoothly.
Thanks to several "u need need to lower the roof fam"s form Dylan and Raphy I lowered the roof and the side profile looks much more like Supra
The "badge" wasn't planned, and i wish it wasn't there but sadly Lego decided to out studs n their bricks for some reason.
Some of the gaps are irritating, and the pistons for would have to have stickers on to be tail lights, but otherwise I'm pleased with how the rear turned out
Fun fact No.7 - The lower corner of the front is practically the same as the Python's. Because laziness recycling
Had to cheat on the spoiler with the classic Lets-Hope-No-One-Notices-Transparent-Peices
Usually the roof and C-pillar is one of the most painful parts of a build but this time round it was with little issues which was a relief more than anything :,)
Small indent and vent on the side is far more complicated than necessary, much like the entire model
Everything opens, even the boot, so I think I've managed to put my days of boots that don't open behind me
Doors feature door cards with actual (if thin) pockets, and necessary curve on the edge.
It was impossible to do a re-build of the last large scale Supra engine because it didn't have one. However this one does, and it's the 2JZGTE no less, which boasts 2 turbo chargers, more power and BLUE (which is the real reason i used it lol). Wish i could have fir some covers over the wheels, otherwise I'd say its one of my best engine bays yet.
A better look at the toothed-exhaust manifold, and the "boot", which is spacious under the window but the rest is just for the taillights WhOoPs
The interior is always a pain to render, but this is probably the best interior I've done to date. And the glovebox still works!
Many dials, offsets, angles and a large tooth. cool and g o o d
Door cards instantly make an interior seem more realistic

Both the engine and seats went really well, and are always fun to build
Detailed rear suspension is utterly pointless because you can't see it. Perfect
Not much to look at underneath, just a lot of structeral work,
Plenty of over complicated structural work, so you know its a Sem Creation™. I tired to show as much of the interesting techniques as possible, so hopefully that answers any questions. As ever, the picture is bigger than the other so increased ZOOM.
I sincerely apologise for my absence, I'm in sixth form (for amercain that roughtly translates to big boy school but not uni) and that's eaten up a lot of my time. And to people like Nick and Joe, SORRY I DIDN'T MAKE IT TO STEAM, will hopfully see you this year
