Cruella de Vil's Car
The classic Disney car from Disney’s '101 Dalmatians'
About this creation
Cruella de Vil, Cruella de Vil; if she doesn’t scare you, no evil thing will.
To see her is take a sudden chill; Cruella, Cruella…de Vil
.”
(Disney’s 101 Dalmatians, 1961)

This is a model that I wanted to build for several reasons. I hadn’t built any LEGO cars for a few years, having been specializing in replica weapons, and I wanted to show myself that I can build in other genres. I’ve always been fond of Cruella de Vil’s car from the classic Disney film (one of my sister’s favorite movies), and I was first inspired to build it when the LEGO Group produced the Two-Face hairpiece from LEGO Batman back in 2006. It’s been about five years since I constructed my original de Vil car, back in my TFOL days, which I had brought to BrickFest 2009; it was a very rough model that I was nonetheless proud of at the time. Now, as I will be attending BricksCascade 2013 in March, I want to bring Cruella’s car back to Portland with a few improvements.


My original rendition of the car, which was completed on August 14, 2008.


My new version, completed February 5, 2013; both my building (and my photography!) have improved a bit in the past five years.


Anyone can improve their building skills if they keep practicing!


The construction process for this model was just a matter of getting each of the distinctive components (like the wheel wells, roof, and spare tire mount) to look right and then bridging the gap between them, ensuring a solid connection. While I studied pictures of the car from the movie, I did not have any measurements to use and just estimated the vehicle’s proportions.


Thanks for looking, and let me know what you think!

P.S. The next model I plan to post is Glamdring, Gandalf’s broadsword from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I just need to finish the tip of the scabbard!

P.P.S. If you live in the Pacific Northwest, be sure to visit BricksCascade 2013 at the Oregon Convention Center on March 9-10 and see Cruella’s car, and my Tolkien weapons, in person!

Quoting Chris K By the way, are you still working on that light machine gun?
I'm sorry to take so long in getting back to you; my LMG WIP has been gathering dust on my LEGO shelf for several months now, and the weapon is about 25% complete. I still hope to finish it, but it's a low priority to me now that I'm no longer taking LEGO guns to fan conventions or selling instructions for them.

Awesome! I really like the way you used tiles to cover up all the studs. This was one of my favorite movies as a kid and I still have it on tape.
