This car was inspired by Vinny Turbo's awesome 5-wides, and by the Cadillacs of the late 50's. For my first attempt at a 5-wide model, I think it turned out pretty cool. I had thought about working in some lowrider-style suspension, (See Dylan Denton's page) but I didn't want to tear up the body to make it fit. But despite the lack of detail, I'm really starting to enjoy building small-scale vehicles.
About this creation
Update: January 11th, 2010. I'm just playing around with the lowrider suspension idea.
Okay, so it fits into the front just fine, thanks to the angled fenders. It's the back that's giving me trouble.
While the construction isn't quite the same as Dylan's, it works the same way. Pretty cool, huh?
I love this one. You very well cought the spirit of the 50's with this beautiful car. Hope you will join the 5-wide studless cars' club and ad this to it as well as many others... I haven't got much time for that at the moment. Btw thanks for mentioning me. :-)
Very nice! I would have to say that the front and the front 3/4 shots are the best, but i am not too sure about the side or the back... The front is great, i do like the head lamps. Keep up the good work -- sean
(applause) Very good! But, I mean c'mon, there's no way that's your first one... Mine was a DISASTER!! And by the way, I've got like 3 things I want to upload this weekend:
-My brand new cargo plane- AC-130 V2
Please check my stuff out later this weekend, and GREAT build!
