Nothing says ‘America’ like voter fraud apparently*. A close second however, is the Ford F-150 pick-up, especially in Raptor specification and with stars-and-stripes FORD lettering across the front.
This fantastic recreation of America’s favourite uprated off-road pick-up comes from Master MOCer and vehicle-building legend Firas Abu-Jaber, who has created it entirely from the parts found within the official 10265 Ford Mustang set.
Despite the limitations of its parts-base, Firas’ F-150 Raptor not only looks superb, it features working steering, opening doors, a functioning sunroof, a dropping tailgate, and a detailed engine underneath the opening hood.
There’s much more to see of Firas’ 10265 B-Model at his ‘Ford F150 Raptor’ album on Flickr, where around twenty stunning images are available to view.
You can also find building instructions for the Raptor available at Firas’ excellent new website Bricks Garage, where instructions for over a dozen of Firas’ builds are available for download, including a range of set alternates. Find out more here!
We love LEGO’s officially licensed vehicle sets here at TLCB. Ferrari, Porsche, McLaren, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz and more have all made appearances in brick-form, and Ford joined the party most recently with three new sets added to the mini-figure scale Speed Champions range.
This is one of them; set 75875, a Ford F150 pick-up with a Model-A hot rod in tow. Except that the 75875 pictured here is a considerably bigger than LEGO’s original, courtesy of builder Aliencat, who set about super-sizing the Speed Champions set.
Faithful to the design of the original set, Aliencat has ramped up the detail afforded to him by the increase in scale, and each build features a fully detailed engine and interior, and includes some superb chassis realism too.
Aliencat’s super-sized 75875 Ford F150 and Model-A builds are available to view on both Brickshelf and Flickr – click the links to see the full gallery of images.
LEGO’s fictional petroleum company, Octan, have been around since 1992, with their ‘sponsorship’ appearing on allsortsofvehicles over that time. This Ford F150 Raptor in full off-road spec by Flickr’s Peter Blackert (aka Lego911) is one of our favourites to appear in a while, and the Octan sponsorship looks very at home. There’s more to see, including a few images of the Raptor in a brick-built desert landscape, via Peter’s photostream.
This fully-studded 1984 Ford F-150 was suggested to us by a reader. Michael Janise is the builder and he’s thrown in everything a redneck ride needs; lift kit, spotlights, roll bar and an ice cooler. OK, everything bar a gun rack and a republican/confederate flag sticker on the rear bumper. See all the details on MOCpages here.
This glorious Model Team style classic Ford F150 was brought to our attention via The Lego Car Blog Feedback and Suggestions page. The work of Brick Pimp, it features opening doors, tailgate, load-bay and hood. See more of this classic American truck at Brick Pimp’s Flickr photostream.
