A 6-wide Minifig scale version of my favourite Technic car, the 8845 Dune Buggy
About this creation
Inspired by Marcus Paul's fantastic minifig scale vehicles I started to build a 6-wide Minifig compatible version of my all time favourite Technic car, the 8845 Dune Buggy.

The first version aleady looked cool, but it was a little too big compared to the size of the minifig (especially the roll cage):


So I shortened the lenght of the model by 2 studs (1 in the front and 1 in the back) and built a smaller rollcage. But I didn't have the right wheels for the model, the ones I used before were just too big.

Then I bought the set 4433 Dirt Bike Transporter with this cool set of balloon tires. Even with the completely new look I think these tires are a good choice:
Yes, LEGO Nils has another new toy to play with :-))

A side view:


And a (more or less) rear view:


Some more photos:





This glass panel is really worth it's money :-))

Family meeting:

The original Technic model, the 4-wide and the 6-wide version


So this is my 6-wide Minifig scale version of the LEGO 8845 Dune Buggy.
I hope you like it :-))

P.S.:
Santa brought this to me:

I must have been a good boy ;-))
It's like The Beauty and The Beast united in one model...

Quoting seth Ryan you should make a minifig size A-TEAM van if you no what the A-TEAM is.
Of course, I know the A-Team: "... If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the ... A-Team." :-)) There have been made a lot of these vans in all scales in LEGO. I haven't had a "unique" idea to contribute something new, yet, so it's still on my to do list ...

Quoting Marcus Paul ... Rebuilding at least some of your 4-wides as 6- or 7-wides would be awesome, maybe we could combine something, there are lots of ideas ... Great job pal, keep it up!
Well, LEGO Nils at least needs a TT, doesn't he? ;-)) And later he'll need a mini van or a station wagon ;-))

Wow, this looks amazing buddy! I love the shaping with that ingenious roll cage and the solution for the steering column. Glad to see you are building some more minifig scale MOCs.

I didn't knew this set, but your scaled down version looks amazing compared to the big one! Some nifty part usage (like the windscreen) makes this a great car to drive if I where a minifig ;) Nicely done!
