Enzo Ferrari . All summer I had been planning on building a 16-wide Enzo. I started one in June, but I didn't like the way it was turning out so I abandoned it for other projects. After building steadily this summer, I revisited it and this is the result. This isn't my first Enzo at this scale; I built one several years ago (it is still in my cars folder), but I never really liked it. My Lego collection and skills have expanded since then, and a remake was long overdue. Hope you enjoy it! . I was never a huge fan of the official Lego set, and I never even had it. So as you can see, this is not simply a modification of the official set; it was built completely from scratch the way I think it should have been built. The Enzo has always fascinated me; it is so unique-looking. This made it an interesting and challenging build. In fact, this took longer to build than any other car I've made, at any scale. Along with the Ferrari badge mosaic that accompanies it, this is probably my favorite project that I've made so far.
Unlike my other cars, this one has a solid windshield. At the end of the page I also included some pictures of the car without the solid windshield in place; if you think it looks better without, PLEASE let me know! I like the look of the dark windshield in some pictures, not so much in others, so I had a difficult time deciding whether or not to add it.
This MOC features another of my MOCs, the Ferrari badge mosaic as seen in the main picture of this MOC. If you like it, please check it out on my page; it has its own page with better and close up pictures.
Also, one more disclaimer:
I feel bad, but I wasn't able to add hinges to the doors. I could have always done some kind of gull-wing connection on top, but seeing as that's not how the real car's doors work, I didn't want to do it. In the pictures where the doors are open, they are simply propped open by antennas, if you look closely you can see. I spent many hours trying to add a hinge that would allow the doors to open the right way, however, there seems to be no way to do it without sacrificing the detail of the interior and the door itself, which I did not want to do. So, no door hinge. Sorry!
Some pictures of the car all around:

On display with the Ferrari Badge: Please feel free to check out my page; I have a separate page for the mosaic if you would like more detail on that.
Here are the pictures of the car without the solid windshield: I definitely looks different I think, but better or worse, I'm not sure. Let me know what you think.
