    Hey, people
    It is a tremendous thing that someone has started a blog that deals with LEGO vehicles because on other famous blogs there are not enough vehicles published. That is kind of a shame because there are so many people that do beautiful vehicles like Steven Marshal. Check that guy out.

    I would like to contribute with my own MOC’s so feel free to check my MOC page. There are several vehicles that you might like.

    Thank you for starting something like this. I am checking it on a daily basis.

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Welcome to the blog Vibor and thanks for the tip-off : )

      Unfortunately MOCpages is having its weekly sulk and refusing to work, but we’ll be sure to check out your work. We tend to only post new MOCs mind.

      We look forward to your continued readership (and maybe you’ll even see your work here at some point too).

    This LEGO model of NASA’s Deep Space Habitat project includes the Chariot Rover, which was featured on Top Gear. It’s a great project that is aimed at creating a planetary base and vehicles for astronauts to live and work in on future space exploration missions. The LEGO fan made model is on LEGO CUUSOO here:

    Please support it!

    Does anyone know where I can find the Lego Citroen Avant set to buy? My fiance just bought the car to do a full restorement on it, so I would LOVE to get him this. Please email me at traciwright5@gmail.com if you have any links for me! Thank you!

  4. traci2222

    Thank you for the reply! I would love to see if the builder could make me one for my fiance! It is absolutely adorable and a perfect gift. Thanks again! πŸ™‚

    1. twohorse602

      Hello Traci. I built the Citroen that you like – thankyou, I’m very flattered especially as you have a real one ! I’d be delighted to make another, but do remember that things like this are more complex and fragile than a typical Lego set, and more expensive. If you message me with an e-mail address we’ll talk further.

    Hi,

    I would like to suggest a spectacular (IMHO) Technic MOC which has just been presented by Hypo (Heiko) in the German Forum 1000steine (http://www.1000steine.de/de/gemeinschaft/forum/?entry=1&id=2280#id2280). It is a huge Rosenbauer Panther ARFF. Check out Hypo’s Brickshelf folder, too: http://www.brickshelf.com/cgi-bin/gallery.cgi?f=484931. There are also some videos on YouTube.

    In my opininion it is one of the very best Lego ARFF around, design and functions are outstanding. I think it has not been blogged before (or at least I did not find it).

    Anyway, you do a great job here (I am very proud about having been blogged on the Lego Car Blog already). Thanks for your attention!

    Hi guys, I love the site. Can you help me out though? Crowkillers put his Vampire GT on Lego Cuusoo and with your help can it reach 10,000 votes. If you can do a blog/article asking people to vote and support it this creation can become a real production vehicle for all car fans to enjoy. It you can also Tweet and Facebook it that would be fantastic search #VampireGT on twitter… here is a link to the project:
    http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/13666
    Thank you

    1. thelegocarblogger

      This is exactly the sort of thing we’re looking for. I do need to ask if this is your own design though, before we would be able to consider it.

  7. legokitteh1138

    Oh yes, it is very much my own design. I have some 30 different LDD files with various sections of the vehicle mapped out, plus the completed model. I started the project when I was 14. Finished when I was 21. I have pages of notes to make sure I scaled the vehicle correctly. Sure, I took inspiration from other builders to get me going, but there is no other Hummer like it on brickshelf or mocpages.

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Thank you Bob. Your work is exactly the sort of thing we’re looking for. We do only post recenty uploaded MOCs though, so we’ll keep an eye out for any new uploads from you

  8. Vibor Cavor

    I’ve noticed you liked my Mercedes so here is another one. New. I hope you like it. ;))

      Thank you for your support! We’ll be sure to look at your work. We’re also always on the look out for more Lego Car Blog writers too, so anyone reading this who may be interested, please get in contact via the comments.

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Hi Jeroen. Thanks for your readership. Your DB5 has some superb functions, best of luck on Cussoo! We may run a feature of the best Cuusoo creations at some point; yours is exactly the sort of thing we like : )

  9. Isaac W.

    I love this blog idea, there aren’t many for things as specific as this! I haven’t seen anything as cool and interesting as this in a long time. Love the idea and will be visiting more often! I build LEGO vehicles as well, working in the small scale for the most part, my complete works can be found here: http://www.mocpages.com/folder.php/9863
    Many are newer and ‘better’, but there are tons of older stuff which I don’t think are worth blogging πŸ™‚ Could you maybe give my recent Corvette consideration?
    http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/331237
    Thanks so much!

  10. Michael Denham

    Thanks for an awesome blog πŸ™‚ I absolutely loved trying to build my own cars with lego, but they sure didn’t look as nice as any of these!

  11. carlopandian

    Hi,

    Just a quick note to see if you would be interested in a guest blogger for The Lego Car Blog.

    My name is Carlo, I like building little LEGO models and I am also very fascinated by LEGO related robotics, design and art.
    The following are some article ideas that I have in mind for The Lego Car Blog(I would also attach images to make reading easier):

    β€’ How does a professional LEGO sculptor goes about designing and building LEGO models – checklist and tips on how to get big with your future models
    β€’ 5 cool LEGO Design pieces – from LEGO ice trays to belts, interesting items to show off LEGO love.
    β€’ How to do LEGO stop motion – software and equipment needed to produce your first LEGO YouTube video.

    Please let me know if you would be happy to consider a guest post from me and I’ll get something written up and sent over to you. I also share all of my guest posts on my social profiles (Twitter, Facebook and StumbleUpon) in order to drive more visitors to your site.

    Look forward to hearing from you, please feel free to send over any questions you may have.

    Kind regards

      Hi Carlo

      In a word; yes : )

      Probably bullet points 1 and 3, as long as they were vehicle-related.

      Let us know your email address in a comment (which we can delete while it sits in moderation so it doesn’t show on the site).

    hi there im new to this blog, but i like to look at Mocpages! I love military and WWII tanks. i was just checking out some planes on Mocpages and ran across 2 planes i really like. The first one was by John lamrack , http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/279402 , i really liked the plane, but i saw a few mega blocks :\ The second plane i encountered, was Jon treasure, his was a great plane also, the only con i saw on his was that the wings were droopy a little and when they were spread forward they exposed a few parts that didnt look as good.( for me its a toss up between the two) http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/318890 . Im hoping you guys could pick one of these planes (or both of them!) and maybe blog it. Thanks for your time!

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Welcome Doug, great to have you here at TLCB : )

      These are both fine MOCs. We’ve actually featured some of Jon Treasure’s models before (so you’re on the same wavelength as us!).

      We do however, only post new creations (i.e. uploaded in the last week or two), so that people don’t see things that they’ve known about before.

      If you’d like to be an Elf for the day and hunt down some recently uploaded planes we’d love to feature them : )

      Thanks and we hope you enjoy the blog

      The Lego Car Blog Team

      1. Doug

        Ok thanks! i really like your website! I would love to search for some new planes, maybe not today though, because im pretty busy. Thanks, i will be searching for new planes throughout the rest of this week!

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Hi Matthew, Thanks for your comment. That plane is superb! Do you know if the owner has made it in real bricks at all? If so we’d love to feature it. Readers; click on the link in Matthew’s comments above to see it in LDD.

      1. Matthew

        I do not think the owner has; in the page is says “late Q1 2012”, so I assume not. It is quite a shame that he/she has not made it (yet)!

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Thanks Josh, and welcome to TLCB!

      That is a spectacular creation. The Elves have stumbled across it a few times, however unfortunately it’s too old to feature on the blog. To our readers; it’s well worth a click on Josh’s link if you’ve not yet seen it.

  13. Zeto

    Hi admin, I would appreciate it very much if you use as reference my flickr photostream instead of other sites when you blog anything of my stuff. Thanks in advance.

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Hello Egor! That is a truly superb model, and perfect for TLCB!

      However, we only post ‘new’ creations (and if we change that now we’ll be inundated with requests), so… if you happen to post a new picture or two to Brickshelf, or upload your pictures to Flickr, we’d be able to feature your vehicle (hint hint!). Let us know if some new pictures are going to appear.

      The Lego Car Blog Team

      1. Egor

        You mean, it is too late to post it, cause it was already posted in october 2012?

        Do you post deep modifications of Lego sets?

        1. thelegocarblogger

          Hi Egor.

          Yes, although if you posted a new picture, or uploaded your pictures to a new medium (e.g. Flickr), then we could feature you here (in short post one new pic and you’ll be featured!).

          We have featured mods in the past, but only if they use very limited parts from the original set (e.g the chassis only).

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Hi Florian

      Thanks for looking us up : ) Your Mercedes is easily good enough to feature on TLCB! If only we’d found you sooner (as we only post ‘new’ MOCs). Keep us posted if you build anything, and you may well see it here.

      Kind regards

    Thanks for all your suggestions. Please do keep them coming.

    If you don’t see your suggestion featured please don’t be disheartened. Some aren’t quite good enough, some are too old, some don’t fit with the line-up for that week, and some would cause the Elves to threaten a mutiny if we bypass them.

    Lots of your finds have been posted, and all are reviewed, so please keep them coming : )

    Hmm… I might be interested in being blogger here. What are the requirements?

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Hi Loek

      Thanks for stopping by.

      We’re looking for intelligent, English-literate bloggers able to give about 15 minutes of their time a week (about how long it takes to write each blog post) to become part of (we think!) the best blog for LEGO cars there is.

      Beyond the above there are no special requirements. You don’t need to have blogged before; we’d like to help people with an interest in becoming a blogger to realise their ambition.

      If this sounds like something you may be interested in let us know, we’ll be contacting those who have shown an interest soon!

      TLCB Team

      1. Loek

        Right. I think this would be very interesting for me! Where can I contact? πŸ™‚

    Hi. I have some nice alternate designs of Technic sets. My latest one is for the 9398 crawler that you may find interesting. But if not I will be making more in the future so I’m sure one day there will be something of mine worth featuring.

  20. Chris

    Hi there guys, I was really honored by your featuring of the Volvexa, and I’m curious if you’d be interested in my latest build, the 1961 GQ B-Type roadster. Self-plugging links to follow, and I hope you enjoy viewing as much as I enjoyed building!

      Hello Dentalspagat, thanks for stopping by.

      Both of those models are superb, and just the sort of thing we like to post. Unfortunately they’re much too old for us as we only post recently uploaded creations, however we’ll keep an eye on this builder now.

      Hello Marin

      This is the first we’ve heard of any problem here at TLCB. MOCpages is broken again though…

      Is anyone else having difficulty seeing pictures?

      TLCB Team

      1. Marin

        It’s got nothing to do with MOCpages. I can’t see any pictures. Links all work (to Flickr and MOCpages) but pictures hosted on the blog are invisible. I still check it and click on the links though. πŸ™‚

        1. thelegocarblogger

          Hello Marin

          Judging by the screen shots of TLCB that we’ve seen uploaded by Flickr users it looks like the site is functioning correctly, so we suspect this is a problem with your browser or PC.

          If anyone else is having this issue please let us know, otherwise good luck fixing the issue Marin!

      Hello David

      What a great little MOC. Our Elves had missed that one (shoots dark look at rapidly retreating workforce). It’s too old for us to post now but we’ll watch the builder with interest. Typically the creations we blog are under a fortnight old.

      Hello Timothy

      Thanks for stopping by. These are ace! We’ll look out for when this builder puts his technical innovations into a complete bodyshell – at which point we’ll be sure to post his work.

        Hey TheLegoCarBog, I love your website. It has a lot of showcased cool MOC’s. Scrolling down through the submissions, I saw that one of my creations had been recommended, but i do agree with you that the bodywork on that was incomplete. My latest MOC should combine both good functioning with good looks

      Hello Vince.

      Thanks for stopping by. MOCpages does indeed appear to have crashed. We have Elves trapped in there… but we’re not too bothered about that, just that there won’t be any new creations uploaded for a while.

      We’ll be focusing the Elves on Flickr and Brickshelf during the downtime.

    Hi, I recently joined this blog and was looking for an initiative like this. I make custom lego sets and use the name BrickArtist4U. My recent project on the Lego Cuusoo website might be cool to post here. It’s a Batman Concept Hotrod that I made and that was just approved by the Lego Cuusoo team: http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/42607. My flickr photostream: https://www.flickr.com/photos/legolover2015/
    In the coming weeks I will set up a website and make lots more models, I normally do all themes but I will be focussing on vehicles the next few weeks.

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Hello Joeri Van hee

      A very nice MOC you have there. We have a bit of a queue of creations to post at the moment, however we’ve added you to our ‘ones to watch’ list – so keep MOCing and we’re pretty sure you’ll see yourself on TLCB.

        Hi,

      Hello Legoturner

      Thanks for your suggestion, that is a hugely impressive creation!

      Unfortunately it’s a little old for TLCB as we suspect many of our readers have seen it already, however now that we know of the builder we’ll inform the Elves to keep an eye on them for future builds, especially as they could be a potential ‘Featured TFOL’.

      TLCB Team

  32. Achintya Prasad

    Hey guys! I saw the comments above me; how kind Legoturner! Anyways, I would like to propose this MOC: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/367709 It was inspired by MOC, but what is special is that the builder is building from an EXTREMELY reduced collection. India isn’t exactly well known as a LEGO marketplace. He has managed to make quite a large creation from his limited resources; despite the “rainbow warrior” look, I feel he deserves a mention.

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Hello Achintya

      Welcome back to the Feedback page! We have a bit of a queue to get through at the moment so we might not be able to blog this one, however the Elves are now watching this builder so they have a good chance of making it here in the future.

      Thanks for highlighting them to us

      Hello Josh

      Thanks for stopping by. Both your suggestions are just what we look for here at The Lego Car Blog.

      The Land Rover we’ve actually featured here before, as the builder’s first version was constructed last year: http://thelegocarblog.com/2012/12/08/defender/

      The big green grader is an unusual vehicle, but the Elves like big machines and are jumping up and down so that we post it – so watch the homepage in the next few days!

    Hi there,

    Thank you for blogging some of my builds, I’m very honored!

    I’m here to ask if you could do a tribute to possibly the greatest car group on the ‘pages, The Rod Club. Unfortunately, after 5 years, the group administrator, Ape Fight, is shutting down the ‘Elite Builders Section’ and the ‘ROTM Award’, leaving the group to only accept new members and MOC’s, so now it’s basically ‘frozen’ as Ape posted. You can read more about the group and it’s rich heritage here…Β http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/47.Β

    Hay, folks from TLCB Team

    I really like this Blog, it’s very organized and got some really interesting ideas… In the last days I’ve been looking this page twice a day, waiting for new posts. Thanks to you I discovered excellent new builders, Excellent new creations, I mean, lots of nice stuff, And thanks to you I became a better and more known builder. Also, a thousand thanks for making blog posts about My Apollo S, Ultimate Aero 3, Porsche 911, Tonagari Solace and 787B. I really appreciate your opinion about my cars, so I would like to ask what do you think about my brand new Jaguar F-Type (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/368500).
    I’m not asking you to make a blog post, but please give me your opinion about it, in therms of technic, shaping, details… I would really appreciate =D

    Best Regards (and sorry for english mistakes, i’m brazilian)

      Hello Alex

      Thanks for stopping by, and for and your kind words. It’s always good to hear from a builder that the Elves like!

      That’s a very nice creation in your comment, you certainly deserve the compliments you have received from fellow MOCpages users. Here at The Lego Car Blog we like to feature all sorts of vehicles, but the Elves’ favourites are the ones that look good and that we can use to teach them about mechanics too. Perhaps your next challenge could be to include some technical developments!

    Hello TLCB-Team,

    I can’t believe it, I’ve just found out that TLG has almost “copied” one of my favourite MOCs, my 4-wide VW camper. I have used some ideas from other builders myself and TLG had a 4-wide VW bus in their Cars series, too, but they really look quite similar.

    The 4-wide Camper is a giveaway at shop.lego.com (set #40079). Take a look at it, yourselves (http://www.brickset.com/detail/?Set=40079-1) and compare it to my one (http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/329631).

    Regards,

    Hello TLCB-Team,

    I bet you’ve already seen that, but nevertheless I’d like to lead your attention to a fantastic scene of a classic race team that Nick Barret has posted today.

    After posting a fantastic transporter for his race team, he had also added an equally amazing Jaguar D-Type. Now he has completed the team with another D-Type, some figures and cool equipment. Check it out on MOCpages: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/369285

    Sorry,

    it’s me again, I don’t want to annoy you, but Alexander Paschoaletto’s new 14-wide Bugatti Veyron is one of the best I’ve ever seen.

    It’s extremely well shaped and has a lot of cool funtions like a working rear spoiler and a pullback motor.

    Convince yourselves: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/369230

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Hello Alex

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Another very nice model with some excellent comments attributed to it. It was suggested to us to blog, however as we have a busy schedule of posts and you’ve featured a few times on TLCB before it was decided on this occasion not to blog it, but it is definitely the standard we look for. The Elves like fast cars, and they also like working functions (steering, suspension, engines and suchlike), we think this is where you could develop your skills next.

      All the best

      Hello Mr. Smith

      Thanks for stopping by, and for your suggestion. The model in question is excellent, however the photography is less so. Our apologies, TLCB requires clean backgrounds to post. We suggest a note to the builder to encourage a new photo-shoot, which would allow us to publicise this creation.

      TLCB Team

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Hello Kron

      Thanks for stopping by.

      This is the second request for this particular creation. We like the model very much, however the photography quality is below what we’d normally accept. But as this now makes two of you requesting it, we’ll see if we can edit the photos a bit to bring them up to a good enough standard.

      If you know the builder however, please hint that a clean white background (paper will do!) and no flash goes a long way!

      This is a great creation, and just the sort of model we like to publicise. However we only blog creations under a week or two old, and this, though excellent, is much older. As such we can’t blog your suggestion this time but please keep your submissions coming in.

      Hello Shannon

      Another great model that’s unfortunately still a little too old. You’re hunting the right stuff though; we’ve featured a few models by this builder in the past, so you like the same things we do! Ideally we need a creation less than 1 week old.

    Hi guys from TLCB. Thank you for posting my Tractor with Butterfly mower on May the 5th 2013! After half a year of building, I present a MOC that is, even in reality, a rare thing. It’s both a Tractor and a Truck and it is allowed on the highway. It is also in the rare color orange and is very powerful. The review is on http://mocpages.com/moc.php/377202 and the movie is on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCnaaecLYPQ. I hope it meets the criteria.

          Our fault entirely Mr. Hogenhout; this page was updated and the ‘no self requests please’ bit inadvertently removed. This has now been re-instated. In case you’re interested, your creation does indeed meet all of our criteria – a suggestion from another builder would therefore generate a post.

Mikey is trying to get their iconic airplane, the Douglas DC-3, made into a LEGO model. Its a great project that showcases a revolutionary aircraft from the 1930’s thats still flying up in Northern Canada. It would mean so much to us if this project could be featured on your site!

    Hey guys, more fantastic work!! Give the Elves a little pat on the back.

    Anyway, I was just wondering what a ‘Featured TFOL’ was. I know what a TFOL is, but does the featured part mean they/their MOC have been blogged, or they’ve got an account and been a guest blogger? Also, is their such thing as a featured KFOL?

    1. thelegocarblogger

      Hello Mr. Manperson

      Thanks for your question.

      The ‘Featured TFOL’ category is used when we blog a creation/s by a teenage builder, although the focus is often more on the builder than the builds.

      This category allows us to blog a creation that perhaps is a little short of meeting our usual post guidelines, but where we feel the builder is ‘one to watch’ and deserving of recognition, something that is not yet done by the other established Lego blogs.

      There are no current plans for a ‘Featured KFOL’ category. However any builder, no matter how old they are, may see their work appear on TLCB if their build meets our blog guidelines (these can be found in the main menu).

      We hope this answers your question,

      All the best,

      TLCB Team
