    Wasn't entirely happy with my 1973 F1 car so I made a lot of improvements. Changed the colors, gave it a completely new nose + wing, smoothened some edges, gave it a better engine cover.

    Surprised someone has been able to keep those cardboard boxes in such a good condition all these years. They were really flimsy in the 80's and 90's.

    That's because they're beginner sets. 7 years and up.
    And on top of that, they're 35 and 33 years old.

    I got a Lego gift card for Christmas, along with a bit of money, so I bought this:

    [​IMG]

    Then I bought this:

    [​IMG]

    And today I got this (primarily because I liked IG-88 and Bossk when I was a kid, despite the fact they even never said anything):

    [​IMG]


    At the end of the month I fully intend to buy something a bit more expensive if I can afford it, I'm thinking Snowspeeder but if not, either the A-Wing or Y-Wing. I'm trying to figure out which one is the oldest and (maybe) therefore nearest to retirement but I got bored and gave up.

    Finally got around to create a Ferrari-esque 90's Formula 1 Car. :D

    Of course a F1 of that era would not be complete without a huge fat blown diffuser. So here you go....

    It was really hard to figure out how to attach the front wing / nose. I really like how my solution turned out, it works wonderfully. :dopey:

    I was bored so built something completely and utterly different today. I really like the female Hoplite Minifig I made.

    I was always hoping they would make a classic Mustang ... And I'll end up getting this ...
    But is it me, or did they miss the mark on this one?

    I'm thinking its gonna need a rebuild ...

    It isn't the Type 57 so I think I'm safe.

    Don't want to even imagine how much that's going to cost.

    Working on a little fun project, a super mobile combat robot model. Almost the same mobility as a human thanks to tons of ball joints. It even has a spine!

    This is a digital render of my model in LDD, I'll probably order the parts next month.

    My modern interpretation of a Group-B rally car. 650 parts, its to 75% finished, which will change to 100% till next monday. :dopey: Ordering all the parts is going to be a pain though. A costly pain.

    Anyway, it consists of 650 parts, it has working steering, slim gravel / snow tires, fully modeled interior. The engine and a hinged hood is not yet completed.

    I picked this up recently and its much better than it looks on the package.

    So far I've kept the kit stickerless. And I used 2 1x6 and a 1x4 in black to remove the white stripes from the car and give it a nice black stripe along the bottom of the door area. I still feel I have to rework the front end a little bit still. Haven't quite figured out how or what I need to do yet.

    But overall its really not a bad build.

    I'll probably pick up a second car to build it the correct way with the stickers.

    Bought yesterday two Speed Champions kits. The 1968 Mustang and the Fiesta WRC.
    Will post some pics once I can make some decent ones.
