    :( A friend of a friend works for Lego in Denmark - I bet he's bricking it right now.

    Hopefully, he'll be able to rebuild his career, as long as he's still got the instruction book.

    Got my LEGO bricks today, finished my LEGO hill climb rally car in gravel trim in under 3 hours. :sly:

    Nearly 1000 parts, proper steering, doors and hood can be opened, interior and engine are fully modeled, and as always I went completely nuts with the aero package. Front splitter, swan-neck rear wing, ankle cutters, a freaking huge diffuser, a fat rear Gourney etc. etc. :D

    I was not 100% happy with the front section of the car, so I improved it a little. I made it simpler and smoother and decreased the profile a little bit, I also slightly increased the scoop intake in the hood.

    What do you guys think? :dopey:

    New version with the front tweaks looks way better imo.

    I might have a slight problem... Mainly that I don't even have enough room for this lot, let alone the X-Wing, Y-Wing and Mos Eisley sets I want next! I've ordered a few bricks including some I'm hoping I can hide a strong enough magnet in so the starfighters can stick to my PC, I'm kind of assuming an A, X and Y-Wing could all fit on the side. If not, I guess I'll have to think of something else, maybe a stand for the three of them together that could sit on top instead.

    My minifigs are getting a bit crowded, too...

    (Ignore that boat thing made out of tiny bricks in front of Yoda and Anakin, that's made of the spares I had left over from building this - )

    Edit: Ok maybe I won't get that Y-Wing, there's a UCS version coming out this year: http://lego.wikia.com/wiki/75181_Y-wing_Starfighter

    Felt like doing a little group shot of my LEGO models. The tiny red Group-C car is my oldest surviving model, I built it 12 years ago when I was 16.
    In total thats over 6000 LEGO bricks on the shelf, 2 models are currently undergoing updates / repairs so they are not on the shelf. The LMP1 on the far left is my oldest of the large scale models, the Yellow-Black Group C car is the biggest models with a brick count of over 1500.

    Very nice. I used to build models like the tiny red Group C car when I was young.

    I just bricklinked all the pieces for this NSX this weekend. I'm taking the week of Memorial Day off so I can build her and play some GTS :tup:

    These prices are getting a bit ridiculous.

    3,600 pieces for $350 isn't too bad, tbh. after shipping I ended up paying just over $400 to build my NSX and thats just 1,700 pieces. But that Bugatti is sick, I'm looking for another build so it looks like that one is next.

    I'll post up the build of my NSX once I get the last 4-5 pieces. I made some improvements over Nico71's build, very minor ones but necessary.

    [​IMG]

    EDIT: I bought the Bugatti today and started the build. I'm about 1.5 boxes in out of 6 and I'm about 5 hours into the build. Now that I'll be back at work, it'll probably take me weeks to finish :lol:

    EDIT 2: I finallly finished my NSX build with some light mods :D

    You can check out the album on image shack HERE.

    I'll post pics of the Bugatti build once I'm done.

    This was taken over a year ago, I'd just finished and our kitten decided it was an excellent place to sit :D

    I finished the Chiron build today, about 16 hours build time for 3,600 pieces which is okay for my amateur skills. You can check my build pics HERE.

    The build was really great all around. The early stages and last stages were the best. And it's not a Murse, it's a European Shoulder Bag :p

    Part of me wishes I did the NSX after the Chiron to get the full effect, but doing the NSX first really set the stage for the Chiron. The Chiron build was like the NSX build, but on steroids :lol:

    Designed a few bigger-than-usual, but still Speed Champions-ish cars in Stud.io for fun. Of them, I think this was the best one and the car I'd like to build for real.

    I threw this together to display on my desk at work for Pride month. I used one of the Creative Boxes and tried to use as much variety as possible. I haven't made any Lego without instructions in a while so this was fun.

    Been wondering what the next Creator car is going to be. Was not expecting it to be the James Bond DB5 (assuming that's what it is). Awesome.

    Made some modifications to my existing LEGO rally car. No LEGO model is ever finished! :D I think those little changes improve it a lot, I'm going to order parts ASAP.

    I picked up Voltron yesterday as well. After the :censored: day at work I had it was the highlight of my day. Now I just have to figure out when I can start building it.

    I also picked up the new Ant Man set. I did end up building that last night. Neat little set.
