The road is made out of roughly 600 or so grey bricks (of different shades in an attempt to create a gritty road look). I had wanted to make the road a bit longer so that the tyre wall at the back would be further from the car, but I ran out of grey bricks and had already exceeded my bricklink budget.
The black line at the rear wheel is meant to be the skid mark. I attempted various techniques at creating a smoke effect with lego but couldn't pull it off.
Here are the pics:
I will be replacing the Duplo minifig with a technic one once I am able to source one.
It was a bit of a rush job in terms of photography. I needed it finished for a show and was too tired to set it up properly for pics prior.
There was a pic from the show:
That is not my album and I didn't take that picture. It is a much better shot of the build though, and there is a technic minifig in it this time rather than the duplo one.
You should lay it on a big piece of poster board and take another pic. If the carpet wasn't there on the sides it would look like a picture on a wall.
Awesome idea. I really like the "O" you used for the red "O" in Nismo.
