Fight for Your Right

The current run of nostalgia and the run of aeroplane builds continues here at The Lego Car Blog towers. During this writer’s late teens it was quite normal to see Volkswagens bereft of their iconic badges and the cause was the Beastie Boys. Brick Flag has created the crumpled tail end of a Boeing 727 that featured on the group’s classic album “Licensed to Ill“. Click here to see unedited photos of the model, including the neat rock-work on the red cliff the ‘plane has hit or here to travel back to the 1980s again.

Technic Supercar Mirage GT

Oh my, it’s a mirage, I’m tellin’ y’all it’s sabotage

Time for a Technic Supercar. We don’t feature these very often, simply because the Elves struggle to find them on their unending search. This is probably due to Technic Supercars’ complexity, meaning few MOCers attempt a supercar build, and fewer still succeed. Lego Technic Supercars are defined by three characteristics – steering, all-round suspension, and a working drivetrain. Francisco Hartley’s Mirage GT is a supercar of his own design, based on no real-world model. Underneath the spectacular bodywork is a flat 12 engine powering the rear wheels through a 4-speed gearbox, with independent suspension on each corner. The MOCpage for this creation is definitely worth your time. Check it out here.
