Volkswagen Beetle (Classic Version)
Classic VW Beetle 5-wide MOC
About this creation


Render from the rear




I struggled with the front end for a while. It's so iconic and I wanted to do it justice, achieving the 'bug eyed' look. This is my best attempt anyway. I'd like to improve on the single 1x1 slope between the two headlights as it looks a little empty, but I preferred the look of the slopes better than when I used bricks or tiles. I'm really happy with the flared wheel arches, making full use of the 5 wide scale. It just wouldn't look right without them.





The wing mirrors are held in by a tight fit between the slopes above and below. They can fall out but apart from this one area the model is very solid.



I almost like it better without the bumper. I also appear to have left a hole in the bonnet here...oops. Where's a 1x1 plate when you need one?



I think the rear end I am most happy with, really screams of beetle to me. As always, please let me know what you think!



And a lovely parting shot of the back of the two together. Thanks for looking!

Cheers for the comment! Yeah I see what you're saying about the squareness. I think it's just my preference in the way lego should look, a bit blocky. Maybe I'll do another with some rounded bricks!
