My 4-wide version of one of Hot Wheels' most popular models, the twin V8 powered "Twin Mill".
About this creation
I already liked the original Twin Mill when I was a kid. The idea of two V8 engines in the front of a car was so cool. The model was so popular that a full scale version of it has been built.
I've had the idea to build a 4-wide LEGO version some months ago and since then I've been working on different designs with LDD. Last weekend I finally built it with bricks and I was lucky to have all the needed parts in my collection. This is the result:
Left side view: Bling, bling ... I love these chrome parts :-))
Rear right view: A very short rear end, just like the original.
Left front view: A long hood and the big air intakes of the V8 engines. The original has wheel covers on the front, but I like this design even more.
Some "birds eye" views, just for fun... Left side view

Well, this is my 4-wide LEGO version of Hot Wheels' iconic "Twin Mill" model. I hope you like it :-))

... one question where do you get this part on the front
Right now you can get one of the blue ones in the Alien Conquest set 7050 "Alien Defender". That's a rather small set with some very nice parts in it. And this is the BrickLink catalog entry: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=51739
