8865 Redux

Lego Technic 8865 Mini

With the news that LEGO have designed a new version of their classic 8860 Car Chassis (available via the purchase of three of this year’s new Technic sets), it’s got us wondering what other vintage Technic sets could be re-borne in miniature thanks to the latest studless pieces.

Appie of Eurobricks has been wondering the same thing too, and he’s taken up the challenge by building a small-scale recreation of LEGO’s first full-bodied Technic Supercar, the 8865 Test Car from 1988.

With independent suspension on all four wheels, working pop-up headlights, steering, a miniature V4 piston engine, adjustable seats and a two-speed gearbox, Appie’s little 8865 packs in all the working features of the full size original.

To check out how he’s done it and to view the full gallery of images – including a few showing the model alongside the official LEGO original – make a visit to the Eurobricks discussion forum here.
