We were busy getting drunk with your Mom at the weekend, but luckily for us one of our readers (and a previous bloggee here at TLCB) has stepped in to prove you don’t need a million bricks and an unlimited bank account to build something blog-worthy. Over to Nils O…
4-wide cars, officially named ‘Tiny Turbos’, are like the Hot Wheels or Matchbox cars for Lego fans. I am a big fan of these tiny models and I’m always looking for new ones. Lots of them don’t really look like the original model, but every now and then comes a new model you can recognise at the first look. In this case it’s Ken Block’s heavily modified, 4-wheel driven 1965 Ford Mustang called “Hoonicorn”. The car is the star vehicle in Block’s Gymkhana 7 video and is mainly built to burn rubber. Flickr’s DerLuckyy is the builder of this ‘Tiny Turbo’ and the small thing really looks like the original, including custom-made stickers, big wheel houses and a huge diffusor. You can find these and some more pictures of the model on Flickr.
And for me the best thing about 4-wide cars is:
You only need a few bricks and a few good pictures to build your own version of the LEGO model… Vroom – Vroom!!!
Thanks to Nils for joining us today, and he’s absolutely right; a few well-chosen bricks and some good photography is all that’s needed to make a splash in the Lego Community. If you’re an observer here at TLCB and yet to try building for yourself, give it a go!
