Weird Wheels

Just when you thought that you’d seen all of the possible ways to build a wheel from LEGO, along comes F@bz. Whilst he is best known for his unusual spacecraft, we have also his featured futuristic cars and bikes on The LEGO Car Blog. F@bz’s Citroen Epona runs on wheels made from 17 (front) and 16 (back) black minifig helmet visors, according to the Elves who counted them. We’ve no information as to the ride quality this gives but it definitely creates a distinctive style. Click on this link to F@bz’s Photostream to see more, including detailed shots of some of the clever connections used in its construction.

Wheelie Good Freebie!

Free Lego BookAsk any vehicle builder how they start a build and you’ll get the same answer: the wheels. Wheels dictate everything about a project, being the only fixed-size component. Luckily for builders LEGO have produced wheels in a huge variety of sizes and styles over the years, so many in fact that they’ve actually become the world’s largest tyre manufacturer. But what if LEGO’s offerings simply aren’t big enough? Ultimate Design has the answer!

Milan (aka Ultimate Design) has produced a FREE 52 page book detailing how you can create bespoke brick-built wheels of almost any size. He’s demonstrated one such design in action, using it on the Tricycle recently featured here at TLCB. To see more details of his book and the brick-built wheel designs within it visit his MOCpage, the discussion on Eurobricks or click below to download your FREE copy!
