This gorgeous Model Team recreation of Buick’s stunning 1954 Wildcat II concept car was discovered by one of our Elves on MOCpages. Built by Beni Henzen it has one of the most beautiful interiors we’ve seen in a Lego car, plus opening hood, trunk and doors. It also enabled us to Google images of the Kentucky Wildcats cheerleading squad for ‘research’ purposes, so we’re pretty happy here in the office. Click the link above to see more of Beni’s Wildcat, or join us on Google to see Kentucky’s finest…
It’s been a while since we posted a historic warplane here at The Lego Car Blog, so in rectification today we’ve got three! First up (above) is JBIronWorks’ beautiful blue Grumman F4F Wildcat and accompanying diorama. There’s more to see on Flickr by clicking here.
The second of today’s trio of Word War 2 fighters comes from Daniel Siskind, who has constructed a brilliant mini-figure scale replica of the legendary Supermarine Spitfire. Daniel’s version pictured here is a Mark V in desert camouflage and there’s lots more too see at his photostream – click the link above to make the trip.
The final creation in today’s threesome, representing the Axis Powers – and the nemesis of the Spitfire above, is the formidable Messerschmitt BF-109. This stunning recreation of the famous fighter has been built by Flickr’s Lennart C, and you can see more of his model by clicking here.
Fighter aircraft seem to always have cool names. Well, apart from Russian ones, as the Soviets apparently banned creativity and decreed that everything must be called only by a number. Anyway, Tornado, Jaguar, Lightning, Typhoon, Thunderbolt all feature in our ‘cool names’ list, but this is perhaps the best; the FM-2 Wildcat.
Ralph Savelsberg is the builder of this exquisite Lego recreation, and you can see more of his latest work via his Flickr photostream. Ralph also recently joined us as the penultimate builder in our Master MOCers Series; Read his interview here!
