BRE Datsun Roadster
BRE Racing's own Datsun Roadster. All in all a very fun MOC. Well, fun Lego build, I'll let you decide whether or not the MOC's any good. =P
About this creation

Yet another study in how complicated a curved box can become, for comparison, consider a sidewalk built out of sunglasses and held together entirely with masking tape. Built on a cliff.









For added effect, I added those little paper/ album photo holders in the corners. Also, the pics are slightly yellow for that premium aged look. Not by accident this time, either.









46.









And 46 facing the other way!









The back. What sticker paper holding the 1x2-slopes-on-the-side-because-I-couldn't-find-a-way-to-attach-them-but-they-looked-so-dang-good-there?









So maybe I did cheat a smidgen. Also, there's a paperclip in the pneumatic tubing roll cage.









Snazzy dash, with lots of details like gauges and pedals. And that's all you need.









The limey seats make a comeback! =D









Seeming an ordinary Datsun, but by night, it's an Autobot fighting crime an- oh wait, wrong MOC.









Or was it? Yeah, it was. The race track is the perfect place to try out a new hood hinge! =P









Rather than having an engine, my Lego model is powered by two skaters that run as fast as they can on a little treadmill.









Heres the pseudo limited-slip-diff., makes the wheel assembly more durable and easier to steer.









"Ima 'splode red" gas tank. With lines!









I may have neglected to mention, but sadly my McPherson strut design disintegrates and combusts when converted to 14-wide. So this has pendular steered front wheels.









The back, though, in all of it's triumph, has maintained my shock absorbers! *Insert applause for Datsun here*









Thank you for viewing!

This totally brings me back to my real datsun 69 roadster 2000 i had a few years back. I should have used sticky paper to hold my winshield in. Very well done sir. Anytime a datsun is recreated, in real life, or lego is a good thing! Now wheres that 240z

I did nt know there where datsun roadsters, have they been imported in america ? your car is real nice, I simply love the shape, the rear bending give it great style and a fine line, the color scheme is also nice, cool and original car!

Quoting Polomoche Mann Does the limited slip diff actually work or just for looks?
It works in-that the wheels can turn independent of one another, but it doesn't have any gears to transfer the axles power from the wheels to a model engine. But that didn't matter much because I didn't add a working fake engine. =)

Build the 240Z! It's your team and they would run more than one car, go on, you know you want to, I want to see it...NOW ;-)

This is a beautifully styled, attractive creation! The 46 on the side looks great. It has a great interior, too and the seats are very nice indeed! Does the limited slip diff actually work or just for looks? Coz it looks pretty nice, anyway! :-) All in all, a top creation!

Very nice, the tilted backend is a great feature.

Exhilarating! Very authentic! I love this car! perfectly shaped and perfect built ( paper-stickers, for fixing bricks are ok.) The numbers in the doors are great! The photo-holder corners are also an nice idea. Congratulations to your Roudster!

46? You mistyped 42, I guess.

Really nice work all around, especially on the numbers and patterns on the side. Not sure if the lime green seats fit in with the rest of the car, but you went for it anyway, and I like that!

Coolio. Loving the hood design and snot work on the side. Those skaters must be very fast runners.

Quoting DeTomaso Pantera I think you should build the 240Z now ;-)
I would, but Allan wanted to build it and I have built 3 cars for BRE =P. Maybe I'll do the baja version and save it for posting later.

Splendid stuff! Lovin the colours and the whole design, the back looks brilliant and looks great fun to drive. I am also not sure about the seat lol. I think you should build the 240Z now ;-)

What a gorgeous car! Love the bodywork, especially the no. and stripes. Only iffy bit is colour choice for the seat, otherwise this is superb in every respect. 10/10, one of my favourite builds this year
