My Other Racing Car’s a Racing Car

Today’s other Lock-Down B-Model Competition entry takes one of Technic’s more unusual sets, the 42039 24 Hours Race Car from 2015, and turns it into… another racing car. But don’t be fooled, it’s one heck of a transformation.

Abandoning the closed cockpit of the original design, builder Anurbis has created a Formula 1 car alternate the looks so good you wouldn’t think there were any parts constraints at all. Like the set upon which it’s based, Anurbis’s B-Model includes working steering, all-wheel suspension, and a V8 engine, plus adjustable mirrors and an opening engine cover.

There’s more to see at the Eurobricks discussion forum where Anurbis has published several images, build specs, and details of a version that switches the mechanical functions for motors and remote control. Click here to take a look, and here to read the competition details if you’d like to enter a B-Model of your own!
