Lego’s 75892 Speed Champions McLaren Senna set is, to this TLCB Writer at least, a bit ‘meh’. Not that we should begrudge another real-world car being available as an official LEGO set, but still… meh.
LEGO’s new 8-wide Speed Champions scale offers the opportunity up the realism, both for sets we’d forgotten about and models that maybe didn’t hit the mark in 6-wide form.
Cue previous bloggee Fabrice Larcheveque, who has rebuilt 75892 in 8-wide scale, and what a difference two studs make! Gone is the awkward shaping of the official set, replaced by a complex and realistic model of McLaren’s track-only hyper car.
Excellent presentation completes the build and there’s more to see of Fabrice’s McLaren Senna redux on Flickr via the link above.
