This startlingly well-constructed classic camper is a 1977 Dodge B100-based Winnebago, or ‘Minnie Winnie’, and it comes from 1saac W. who is on an absolute roll at the moment.
1saac’s creation captures the aesthetic of the real deal brilliantly, including a brick-built take on the classic Winnebago livery, and a subtle shift from six to seven wide from the cabin to the camper.
It might not be fast, nor beautiful, but it’s nevertheless one of our favourite small-scale creations of the year so far. Head to an American campsite in the late ’70s via 1saac’s photostream above.
It’s the late 1970s. Your Dad is on vacation with his mates at the lake, and he’s just been rumbled watching the girl from the Winnebago in plot 44 getting changed. She knew exactly what she was doing though, starting the chain of events that led to a drunken night out, shotgun marriage, and you. Followed by years of regret, but hey, that’s not the Winnebago’s fault.
This brilliant ’72 Winnebago Brave D20 is just the thing for making mistakes at the lake and comes from JLiu15’s Lego Studio of Flickr. Featuring a detailed interior, opening doors, and no curtains at all there’s more to see at JLui’s Winnebago D20 photo album. Click the link above to join your Dad at the lake. Just don’t distract him or you might start Back to the Futuring…
The world’s second favourite television RV has featured here at TLCB before, and now Flickr’s Ralph Savelsberg (aka Mad Physicist) has taken Dale’s RV from the hit AMC series The Walking Dead to a new level. This flawless recreation the classic Winnebago includes a complete interior, authentic blood splatter, a shotgun-armed Dale, and – of course – a hungry zombie. There’s lots more to see on Flickr – click here and get ready to run!
Possibly the greatest TV show of recent times is back (sort of) with the arrival of the new spin-off ‘Better Call Saul’. Here at TLCB though, we’re all about the original – and what better way to remind ourselves of the five seasons of brilliance than with two of Breaking Bad’s most infamous vehicles; Walter White’s Fleetwood RV meth lab, and his hideous (and perfectly cast) Pontiac Aztec.
Both of the Miniland-scale Lego recreations in this post have been built by Stephan Sander, and they can be viewed in more detail on either MOCpages or Flickr.
Today a plague of mindless, soulless zombies took to the streets, crushing the weak and inattentive beneath them, and remorselessly stopping at nothing until their lust was quenched.
We are of course talking about the American scourge known as ‘Black Friday’, where people are willing to trample one another to death to secure a 50% discount on something they didn’t even want until today, and where the equivalent of the entire GDP of Sudan is spent in just 24 hours.
Much like The Walking Dead’s Dale sitting atop his Winnebago whilst the zombies surge below him, The Lego Car Blog Towers are located out of reach of the madness, allowing us to watch from afar as society destroys itself to secure $25 off a hi-fi.
Misterzumbi’s mini-figure scale recreation of both Dale and the motorhome that featured in the first two seasons of the apocalyptic series seem perfect for today. We just hope our future is brighter than Dale’s turned out to be.
