What is the perfect minifigure scale for cars ?
that depends on the type of vehicle ofcourse.
But a regular car ?
4-wide is too small and 6-wide is too big (but's all right for a family car or HUV)
5-wide it is then.
The problem is that a minifigure doesn't have the same body proportions as a real human,
so when I say minifigure scale I mean that the car fits with streets, trains, buildings and so on, the car doesn't nescesarely need to be able to hold a minifigure.
I hope you like it.
it's ok. i have a demo and SPEEDEVIL is the only car you can drive, the demo has one racing circuit, a forrest track and a high jump stunt :-) i think you can still (for free) download it and check it out if you want. the speedevil is somehow in mustang style, but feels to be smaller than the original :-)
anyway. do you think you can upload some "explosive" pictures? :-) i am really curious about how it's done. and these two show the tiny turbo crowd how they're done! well done again! i love them! :-)
these are very interesting 5-wides! i also do a bit 5 wides, because it is much more fun tha 4-wides, you have more space to build in and it is way more interesting than 6-wides. anyway i have never expected the sort/style of 5-wides yoou did. at first i thought they look a bit odd, but i fell in love with them. really great job! and thanks for inspiration!
Nice cars : great job ! And your other creations are more impressive. Thanks for joining the "5-wide club" Sebeus. Wees welkom. Nu zijn we 2 Belgen. Een nederlandstalig en een franstalig (ik leef in het Zuiden van Frankrijk). Tot binnenkort hoop ik.
Perfect! They look like HotWheels, but better. I think that six wide is a slightly better size if you want to fit in two minifigs side by side cramped, seven is the perfect width to fit two in comfortably, but then makes the car too big.
Saweet!!! There both terrific cars. They remind me of a Chevy Chevelle or Holden Monaro. The only thing that could make them beter is if they where slightly longer behind the rear wheels, othertwise they're perfect.
They look pretty good. Can the guy go in them? I can't tell from the pictures. The Harry Potter car is 6 wide and there is barely room for the two figs to fit inside together. That's my issue with some the cars, especially the 4 wide. Mind you 4 wide is more for the LEGO preprinted baseplate street. It's a tough problem. Too hard to think of before going to work. see ya.garth
Fantastic work! really look like the muscle cars from the 70', I like the red one, good use of the stickers. And I think you're right about the 5 wides; best scale for mini-figs... keep on the great work my friend >>> peace.. Firas
