Brian Kescenovitz‘s tiny creation caught the tiny eyes and minds of our workforce because of its name. Indeed we’ve had to keep his original title for this blog post, just to satisfy a hoard of tittering and sniggering Elves. Brian’s motorcycle caught our eyes because it’s highly detailed, with some very novel parts usage and connections.

An Elegant Weapon From a More Civilised Age…
…to paraphrase Obi Wan Kenobi. Marc R.unde has produced this 6-wide Ferrari 275 GTB. It recalls a more elegant age of sports cars, with its flowing lines. Click this link to see more photos of this car and Marc’s massive space-battleships, by way of contrast, on Flickr.
Red Smartie Day
It’s been a lean time for Lego cars on the internet over last few days. Fortunately one of our workers brought this Jaguar E-Type into the luxury editorial suite at TLCB towers today. Red Smarties all round!* Lennart C has worked hard to capture the curves of this classic machine in just 11 studs width or 1/18th scale. We think that he’s done a great job.

*Well, one for the lucky Elf who found the car.
Who would have thought that you could use Lego horns as wing mirrors? Flickr’s RGB900 did and remembered to put them on his car too. Time to open up the red Smarties.
Man With a Van
Whilst many of our sci-fi oriented Elves are busy giggling at this year’s Febrovery creations, some of them are still scouring the rest of the internet. One Elf has just been rewarded with a shiny red Smartie for bringing back this pick-up truck. It’s the latest in Don Wilson’s series of flying vehicles, that has also included racing cars, speeders and a scrap metal lorry. Click this link to see more of Don’s models on Flickr.
This Pro Street Racer is the work of piratecox on Flickr. It features all of the chrome and giant fins that you’d hope to find find on a 50s or 60s automobile. It also sports the obligatory hot-rod custom exhausts and an engine so large that the driver can’t actually see where he’s going. The car also has an instrument panel made from coffee cups and a mean looking driver.
Whilst the Elves were passing through piratecox’s Photostream, they collected the first of this year’s Febrovery builds to be blogged here. Many Rebrovery builds feature multiple wheels but this rather nice Classic Space motorbike has just the usual two. Click the links in text to see more.
A Red Re-Vamp
The Elves were incredibly excited when they found this super Starfighter Transporter by billyburg. They thought that each of hub caps on its 8 wheels was a blue Smartie. Alas not but we have rewarded them with a handful of meal tokens. We’ve previously blogged the chassis of this machine but now it’s been topped off with a colourful, red starfighter which uses a nice mix of Technic panels and System bricks, plus a bit of white sticker. Billyburg has also posted a rather nice space-crane, in the same micro-scale, as you can see below. Click this link to billyburg’s Flickr Photostream to see more of both creations.
