Golden Oldie

Golden oldie

Building classic cars in LEGO is fun, largely because a lot of LEGO’s newer smooth pieces look perfectly designed to end up on a mid-’30s roadster.

Here’s a beautiful example of the above; a dinky classic ’30s roadster by Xtopher. See more at MOCpages by clicking the link.

The Lego Plane Blog

The Lego Plane Blog

Right… we are The Lego Car Blog, but this post and the one beneath it are planes… what’s going on?

While we’re contemplating our lack of focus we’ll break the rules again, and highlight these awesome models by Mad Physicist; his previously featured F-105 Thunderchief (left) and an F-106 Delta Dart (right). Both are blog worthy on The Lego Car Blog, so the Physicist’s latest work gets another feature.

Redspeed

Redspeed

Redspeed in the title, but picture is orange…? The Elves, who have been learning the names of the colours, are confused…

Whatever, the orange seems to be done with photoshop, but as orange looks neat we’ll let it slide. The actual model is red, and with the various nifty shapes and nice parts usage almost everywhere Harry Gravett has totally nailed probably the first Lego Marcos LM600 on the net.

Harry’s race-ready road car looks great in any colour, so it’s worth checking out by clicking the link above.

The British Icon

Lego Range Rover

The Elves are still beavering away, bringing us the best creations from around the world. Today this Technic Range Rover by Rabbitdesign MB caught their attention, with the neat combo of loads of great functions and classy looks, he’s nailed it. This week marks the end of mark 3 Range Rover production, as the all new mark 4 reaches showrooms. Hopefully it won’t be long before we see the new version in Lego too. See more on MOCpages via the link above.

The future, right now!

We’ve blogged some huge creations this week but small simple builds are fun too, like this brilliantly photographed Town scale hovercar. See more at Alex B’s MOCpage.

A Real Mammoth

A Real Mammoth

Work in Progress is the description. So far we can see this amazing crane looks… er… amazing, and we can’t really put our finger on what work is left to do.

LiftingBricks on Flickr is the creator of this astonishing Liebherr mobile crane, and you really won’t believe half how big it is. Click the link above to find out.

More Classic Muscle

More Classic Muscle

You can describe this 1967 Ford Mustang in one word: wow. With great parts usage and an accurate design D DiTorrice recreates this classic muscle car perfectly – and as he owns a real ’67 Ford Mustang you’d expect so! A deserved a blog post.

Lime Limey

English Epicness

English Epicness

What to say about this!? A wonderfully functional, but terrifically accurate model of the legendary Lotus Exige S; explosive in lime green it looks like the real thing. Created by the supremely talented Rolic, you can see more of this incredible English sports car on Flickr.

Russian Patrol

Russian Patrol

Fresh from our Flickr-feed: something from Russia. We’ve blogged a few East-European cars recently, but we haven’t seen a police car yet. This detailed car which could easily be found in LEGOland is instantly recognizable as a Lada. The fig is impressive, too. Made by Mad Physicist (Ralph S), see more of this car at Flickr.

Small But Mighty

Small But Mighty

We thought this was a medium-size MOC at first, but believe it or not this highly detailed Ferrari 250 GT by Angka Utama is 4-wide.

With the creative use of LEGO’s Disney Cars 2 parts Angka captures the look very well; we think this is the most detailed 4-wide we’ve seen for a while. Check it out on MOCpages.

Classic Muscle

Camaro, ’70s style

American Muscle + LEGO = Epic. Who doesn’t like the Chevrolet Camaro? It’s been around for ages, with a recently updated model in showrooms this year. This one is a classic Camaro Z28, and it’s been built by Senator Chinchilla on MOCpages. It was suggested to us by one of our readers via the Feedback page – keep your suggestions coming!

Better than the Original!

Better than the original!

31006 Alternative

The LEGO set 31006 is a nice on its own, but it also contains some useful parts. Many builders have used these to create another car/vehicle/thing, and this one impressed us the most.

This 31006-based Low-Rider by Peteris Sprogis is a mix of creative part usage and classic studs-up building. To see more of this dream car, click on the link above.

Big Italian Truck

Big Italian Truck

Fiat 642 Maserati Transporter. Well, 98% of one.

If you follow the vehicle rules in the MOCpages group Classic Race Teams the results will always be good. Proof is here again…

This awesome Italian truck for Classic Race Teams, built by Lego Builder Jr., features the original Maserati colour scheme and some nice details and functions. It’s worth checking out on Flickr and MOCpages, and maybe you can help provide the pieces needed to finish it.
