Model Team Maserati

Lego Maserati 250F Tipo

We’re starting to think that Formula 1 is becoming a bit, well… boring. You can thank Bernie Ecclestone’s enormous rulebook for the current state of affairs, but back in the ’50s the racing was gloriously exciting, due in most part to the fact that the rulebook could probably fit in a small pamphlet.

This exquisite 1957 Maserati 250F Tipo takes us back to a time when things actually happened on an F1 racetrack, when the Argentinian legend Juan Manuel Fangio overcame a 51 second deficit to win the German Grand Prix (and then the championship). Noah_L (aka Lego Builders) is the builder and there’s more to see of his beautifully photographed creation on both MOCpages and Flickr.

S&M

Citroen SMProbably the weirdest of all the weird Citroens was the SM, built during the 1970s when Citroen owned Maserati. Stephan Sander has used his most ’70s coloured bricks (well, maybe apart from brown) to build the French motoring icon in a wonderful LEGO Miniland look. See all the photos of the SM at Stephen’s page on MOCpages via 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.

Lego Maserati Tipo

Larry Pan’s Maserati Tipo

Time for another ‘Featured TFOL’ (Teen Fan Of Lego), and for us to go back to our roots and post a proper car (hurrah!). This beautiful ’60s racer is a Maserati Tipo 151/3, and it’s been built by Larry Pan on MOCpages. Larry has also built a Maserati MC12 and… er, not all that much else yet – but it’s what he’s going to build that earns him a place on The Lego Car Blog. He’s only a few cars in and he’s already building upside-down. One to watch.
