A couple of "new" classic cars and a shot of the whole collection so far.
About this creation
First off, my attempt to build one of the most iconic british vehicles;
Morris Minor Traveller in 5-wide.
YES! I realize that the headlights are all wrong. Still havent come up with a solution. -But as most other details are quite good, I will have to let it stay or go with this fault. Currently it is STAYING!
Second, a re-build of the T1 alerady used in the "One BIG moc" diorama;
It is 6-wide, but I think it blends in quite well with the rest..
Speaking of "the rest", here´s a photo of the whole collection so far;
A couple of Citroën DS's from the "DS-mania" are still 90% intact, and will possibly be re-build to form part of the collection.
Another 2CV (maybe in delivery van version) will probably also be added.
I´ve tried my hands on a Fiat 600, but that didnt work out too well, So I am still looking for another iconic car. Which should it be¿?
-later on a big bus, two small lorries and maybe a tractor. Busy me!
Awesome! I have a T1 just like that in 4-wide :) I really like the woodie, and the lights look fine although they are wrong but you can barely tell cause the wood really catches the eye, so to say. Really great, and your collection looks great!
I could stare at these the whole day if I had the time. I usually don't like woodies but this one makes me wanna get one. That VW van/pickup! Oh, mama! So sweet looking yet so recognizable and precise! Dude, you are one of the best vehicle builder!
Thanks a lot for your nice comments!
Regarding ideas for new cars; Criteria is that they must be cars used in france around 1960-70. Must be either "daily drivers" and/or "poor mans choice". -AND must have visual features which makes it instantly recognizable...
You like your cars are a CLASSIC! Bravo, when are you opening the show room? You should get together with Brian Lyles and see if you guys can work out a deal to sell the instructions to build your cars, in his site Brick Depot!
That Morris Minor is amazing <3!!!
Fiat 600 has a very complex front end...I was thinking to build it, but I decided to try with Fiat 500. Your cars are amazing. I would love to see your work on Fiat 600 because I'm thinking to build one myself!
They are both beautifully made. You are extremely good at these small detailed cars. I am very impressed with the snot techniques. I am trying to build a similar scale car today/tomorrow for hot rod's classic car contest. Excellent mocs.
