About this creation
This is easily the hardest MOC I've ever built; it was very hard to make everything open and to make the chassis strong enough to keep it from bending. As you can see, I borrowed some techniques from Firas Abu-Jaber's Zonda.
Yes, the switches do "work". Click here to see how I made them.

Hi LB hope you are well. Any more cars planned?
Hi MS, I am doing well. How about you? Yes and no: I have one or two cars that will be complete once I make a BL order, but they're not exactly "new" since they've been sitting around for a few months; but yes, new to you and everyone else here. -LB Jr.
Great job on a super tricky car - looks really accurate. Like a few others below this comment, I can 'only' give you a 4 out of 5 as a lot of this is borrowed from Firas Abu Jaber's version - but you've given credit so there's no problem there. Nice work

NICE! Great work on the curves and the proportions. Love to see you tackle a slightly larger scale and just go nuts on the detailing. Meanwhile, killer job!
Thank you! I'm currently building a large (21 track width (front) 23 track width (rear) - 53 studs long I think) McLaren MP4/5B. But although I have a decent Lego collection, most of the parts I are still "free" are old ones that my dad had as a kid, so it's mostly 2 by 2 and 2 by 4 blocks. And I really don't want to spend too much on Bricklink, so I'll work with what I have...we'll see how it turns out.
Wow LBJ, You just keep getting better and better. The shape is spot and the little details are excellent - nice switches :). A detailed photo of the engine would be nice. I love the photo with everything open. Excellent moc.
Well done on making such a good looking car. I really like the switches! I might put them in an upcoming MOC, with credit of course. But you did take a lot of the exterior from Firas, so I can only give you 4/5.
Very nice Zonda, but you took too much technics and details from Firas Abu-Jaber's Zonda. Anyway, it looks good in red too. Nice built and great job on the switches in the interior! And good luck in the contest! :)
This is very good, it does look very similar to Firas' Zonda but in order to make it look like the real thing I'm not sure there is another way to create it. I think this is your best build yet. Keep it up :)
