It’s been a ridiculously busy few days here at TLCB. Thanks to several online contests running concurrently our Elves have been finding huge numbers of top quality vehicles for us to blog. As February draws to a close we’ll be able to slow things down a bit, much to the relief of our typing fingers, but we’ll part the month with one final contest entry, and it’s from one the best builders anywhere in the world.
This incredible 1956 Ford F-100 pick-up comes from TLCB Master MOCer and Professional Builder Nick Barrett, and is his entry into the LUGNuts ‘100 Ways to Win’ competition.
At a huge 44 studs wide Nick’s truck is one of the most detailed models of the year so far, but with such complex curves we think all 44 studs were probably needed! Underneath that beautiful full-stud bodywork is a full Technic supercar chassis, with a perfectly recreated V8 engine, 4-speed gearbox, working steering, and – somewhat weirdly – adjustable air suspension.
There’s a whole lot more of the classic Ford to see, including some great engine and chassis images, on both MOCpages and Flickr.
