    I never got in to the old SC because most of the cars didn't translate well into the sizing.

    I agree, some of them do look a little odd, but i think some of the old 6-wide SC's look pretty decent too.

    Me neither, but when my partner bought me the Mercedes AMG GT3 a few years ago, i was really quite impressed with it.
    The only other 6-wide SC set iv'e bought since then though, was the Dodge Charger/Challenger set (bought primarily for parts). Though i have been tempted to get a hold of the Mini cooper/rally raid set, but i still feel it's a bit pricey.

    Latest moc:

    I built this over the Virtual Le Mans weekend just gone. I'm now thinking of ditching the rear seats that can't be used, (not enough clearance to fit minifigures in them), and just doing some kind of rollcage along with a V10 engine.

    So finally after many years of first wanting to do it, I've got my original Bricklinked Falcon on display. I finally found a table to display it in that was reasonably priced. It's not quite big enough to display the whole Docking Bay 327 MOC so I had to alter the build of it a little to make it fit.

    The Falcon does look a little bit too big for it now but overall I'm really happy how it turned out and glad that it's finally on display.

    After following this thread for awhile I finally decided to buy some Lego's for myself. Figured I should start small though since I haven't really done anything with Lego's in a long time. ;)

    That hotrod is a scaled down version of the Blue Fury one of my very first Lego sets when I was a kid! Cool to see that again.

    How long did that take you? Did you cheat by going bag by bag, or do it properly by sorting it first?

    I didn’t really time myself, but I would say 10 hours is pretty close.

    And it came kind of pre sorted as there were 6 smaller boxes inside the big one. Inside each one was of course a bunch of bags and those I just dumped into individual piles.

    3 months after I ordered it, the Pirates of Barracuda Bay set finally arrived! This was probably the most intricate, detailed and fun non-Technic Lego set I've ever built and far bigger than I expected, too. Definitely had flashbacks to the pirate sets I built as a kid.

    Im guessing I’m supposed to sort each type of piece into their own pile? Yeah that wasn’t happening with this set, I’d still be on the first box. :lol:

    I want to get the Mustang set next, it’s going to take my wallet awhile to recover though.

    Got the quattro for my desk at work. It was an enjoyable build and I'm hoping they add something else from the older rally era to go with it.

    Lancia 037 would be perfect, especially for blocky Lego :)

    Nintendo copied my idea for a lego NES. I like my version.

    Project P1 finished. On my bed because it’s actually too big to fit anywhere else.

    Found an ancient box of Lego bits that haven't been touched for around 40 years, and had a go at making something out of the bits. The only unusual bits were these transparent quarter circles, so I started with those and ended up with a 50s/Art Deco-style kiosk, complete with Hans Frei (the no-handed Barista), cake stand, coffee machine and seating area. There's also a rotating fan on the inside of the ceiling :dopey:

    edit: Disaster struck as I attempted to redesign the rounded walls. I applied a tad too much pressure and the entire back wall imploded into smithereens. Hans was killed. There was coffee and cake everywhere. :( However, his identical sister Hansette rebuilt the kiosk with a new design, now including a yellow glass sunroof and a more compact design.

    edit 2: Think I solved the mystery of what happened to Hans' hands :lol: (see bike handles...)

    On my list, though it’s size might be an issue as I’m running out of room with the 6 models I’ve built this year.

    Got it for my brother last Christmas. He hasn't touched it yet. :( In his defence, though, he doesn't want it to get dusty so he's waiting until we get a big display cabinet for the backlog of model ships we have.

    I would've totally bought this day one, except that I already built this model.

    That canned air dust stuff works as well. My hookah is in the same room as my models and adds a bit of an extra layer of crud that’ll blow right off.

    This one actually works for the most part. The engine cover won’t stay up like it’s supposed, but for knockoff “lego” they look great and are engineered pretty well.

    My newest creation. A 900-parts GT-3 car I call ''Barracuda'' because I think it just looks like said quick predator fish. Love the stickers, got them from Amazon. :D

    Hope you like it!

    I'm planning on building a LEGO medieval town. Still in the early planning stages, I designed my first medieval building just to see if I am up to the task since I'm usually only building LEGO race cars. :scared:
