Old Grey

Lego Vintage Truck

The vintage truck vibe continues here at TLCB with this, another wonderful build by the prolific de-marco of Flickr. Creating some of the finest Town scale vehicles around, de-marco has a huge back-catelgue of creations, many of which include free instructions so you can build them for yourself. There’s more to see of this one and de-marco’s past models at his photostream – click the link above to check them out.

It’s a Snip!

Lego Rope Bridge

Indiana Jo… er, we mean ‘Johnny Thunder’ finally found the Treasure of Marco Polo (a box containing a stamp collection, a broken toastie maker and some Victorian pornography, since you ask) after the daring airborne race against Sam Sinister that featured here last week, and he’s now on the long road home with his bounty.

But what’s this! Sam seems to have caught up with our intrepid explorers and is deploying his much-feared office scissors to halt their escape! Will Johnny and his pals make it across the rickety bridge in time? Will Sam run carrying scissors? Find out courtesy of Travis Brickle by clicking here!

Old Tip

Lego Vintage Truck

This delightful vintage tipper truck was discovered by one of our Elves on Flickr today. It comes from Versteinert MOC and it’s packed with brilliant detailing, including chassis details normally overlooked at this scale, such as an exhaust, spare wheel, gas tank, prop-shaft and even a differential casing. There’s a whole lot more to see at Versteinert MOC’s Flickr album – take a look via the link above.

A Single Shade of Grey

Lego Ford Hot Rod

We are never ever going to read the cancer on literature that is 50 Shades of Grey. However, we do quite like grey LEGO bricks, and over the years LEGO have probably released 50 shades of the stuff. This can make it tempting to use multiple shades in creations, however, unless you’re building a castle wall it can look a bit messy.

Not so here, where previous bloggee Jonathan Elliott has kept it simple with just a single shade, and his ’29 Ford Pick-Up hot rod looks wonderfully clean as a result. Photographed beautifully in his Red Room of Pain, Jon’s build features opening doors, a dropping tailgate, and a fully detailed engine and interior, and there’s more to see at his photostream via the link above.

Emergency Evolution

Lego Fire Trucks

Like one of those T-shirts showing the evolution of man, Flickr’s Galaktek has been charting the evolution of the fire truck, from its beginnings as a motorised vehicle before the Great War until the mid-’60s (with more to come we hope), and our ingenious special effects department* has collated Galaktek’s three builds chronologically above.

From top to bottom; 1912 Mercedes-Benz Feuerwehr-Motorspritze, 1950s Mercedes-Benz L6600, and 1960s Seagrave open-cab tiller.

There’s lots more to see of each historic fire truck at Galaktek’s photostream – click the link above to dial 911 through time.

Truck ‘n Tram

Lego Vintage Truck Tram

This beautiful vintage tram and truck pairing was discovered by one of our Elves on Flickr. Both models are the work of Dario Minisini and they’re part of a much larger and brilliantly built town scene. There’s more to see of both creations and the extensive diorama in which they feature at the link above.

The Snail

Lego Classic Motorhome

Taking inspiration from nature’s gypsy, Flickr’s LimitlessBricks can take his home wherever he goes. Probably quite slowly. There’s more to see of his marvellous creation at the link above.

Kickin’ It Old Skool

Lego Vintage Vehicles

We often post old-timey vehicles here at TLCB, but it’s a rare treat when we can post old-timey vehicles that have been built in an old-timey way!

These charming 6-wide Town vehicles were discovered by… er, The Brothers Brick*, and are the work of Flickr’s grubaluk. There are lots more photos of the individual models available to view on Flickr – simply click the link above to make the jump.

*Our Elves have been sternly reprimanded, the lazy turds.

Post-Apocalyptic Pat

Lego Hot Rod Van

Looking a bit like Postman Pat’s ride from a post apocalyptic future and named after a small-ish lizard we’re not really sure what to make of Horcik Designs‘ ‘Salamander’. However our workforce of annoying little Elves love it. There’s more to see of Horcik’s remotely controlled hot rod van at the link above.

The Roaring Twenties

Lego Vintage Scene

This creation is a little unusual for us, seeing as it’s not really a car. But it does contain several vehicles, and they’re properly good too, so it’s earned its place here. Dario Minisini’s 1920s port scene was suggested to us by a reader, and it includes everything you could hope for in a snapshot of vintage America, including a gangster-operated distillery. There’s lots more to see at Dario’s Flickr page – click here to make the trip.

Two Trucks

Green Truck

Like magpies, the Elves are attracted to pretty, shiny things. This lovely little truck by South Korean builder bigcrown85 was an instant success with them. It features a neatly detailed body, with some novel parts usage such as the steps and the hammers to which the mirrors are attached. Fortunately the hammers are minifig scale. This allowed only slight damage to be inflicted in the ensuing Elf-fight over the green Smartie that the finder was rewarded with.

The truck’s wheels are very delicate and we suspect the application of a bit of “Kragle” to achieve this. However, we’re not too purist at TLCB* and so we’re happy to feature this neat build. Click this link to Flickr to see details of the chassis and the alternative van version.

We’ve previously featured bigcrown85’s superb Dakar Support Truck, when the Elves found it on MOCpages. You can now revisit it on Flickr and view its amazing detail in high resolution by clicking this link to bigcrown85’s Photostream.

Beaut of a Ute

Lego Ford Model A Ute

This Ford Model A flatbed, or ‘ute’ for our Australian readers, is the work of Aussie builder Parrington Levens. Mr. Levens has utilised* some very old parts for his very old truck, and they look rather nice in this context. You can see more of this beautiful ute on MOCpages.

*Sorry.

In Remembrance of the Maxi-Fig

Lego Maxi-Fig Bus

It’s 40 years since LEGO introduced people into their products, with what is now affectionately known as the ‘Maxi-Fig’. Long since replaced by the ‘Mini-Fig’ (which are now so numerous if they were to rise up against humanity we’d be in big trouble), the ‘Maxi-Fig’ was a sort of immovable Technic figure, permanently happy and with two elbows on each arm. Brickbaron pays homage to 1970s LEGO with his lovely B-Type bus populated with smiling ‘Maxi-Fig’ patrons. Brought to our attention by The Brothers Brick, you can see more of Brickbaron’s commemorative creation here.

Seriously Old School

Lego Foden Steam Wagon

The Elves have found something of a LEGO rarity today. We very rarely post early 20th Century vehicles here, mostly because you guys don’t build them, however Marin Stipkovic has allowed us to take a rare trip a long looong way back in time. This magnificent vintage Foden steam truck is perfect for a 1910’s Town scene, and you can find it on either MOCpages or Flickr.

Mr. T

Lego Ford Model-T

The Elves are still hard at work, despite the miserable weather outside The Lego Car Blog Towers. Today’s find, by an Elf who’s now pegged up by the ears near a radiator to dry out, is an unusual model in Lego form.

We’re not really sure why Ford’s Model-T is overlooked by the Lego-building community, what with it being one of the most numerous (and famous) cars ever produced. Brickshelf’s solic helps to give the vintage vehicle some plastic recognition with his superb Technic Model-T truck. It comes compete with authentic leaf sprung suspension, Power Functions control and a working piston engine. See all the photos on Brickshelf at the link above.
