Not only I've created a scale model of the 1982 Pontiac Trans Am from Lego parts, but I've also created a instructional video. Also, this was part of my study. I'm very familiar with blending in my own experiences with study and work objectives. It adds a litle more exitement and character to my projects.
About this creation
The first part video is about the assembly of a homemade Lego Technic scale model. The model is based on the 1982 Pontiac Trans Am production car. It starts with building a chassis from sub assemblies. Therefore I used the click system with spring feathers to hold the sub assemblies together. After forming the chassis I assemblied the bodywork to finish the whole model.
The second part of the video is how the whole thing gets destroyed in a crash derby like sequence.
I built this model in order to use it for my study. The assignment was to assembly a scale model from sub parts. I chose to use Lego for creatign a car. First I started to think and think and think about what model would be awesome to build. After a while of brainstorming I decided to go for a 1982 Pontiac Trans Am model, 'cause that's one of my fav' series from my youth. The 1982 Pontiac Trans Am was used in the 80's Knight Rider series as the main vehicle. After picking my choice I kept busy for a couple of weeks. I just happened to be that lucky to have enough parts to make the bodywork come in black.
The whole model is as plain as I could build it. No lights or other power functions are included. Though the lack of it made it easier to crash and rebuild it. It was just a matter of collecting the crashed car parts and simply click the whole thing together again and again...
Yo Mad Sid, this is totally crazy awesome and deserves many more views and comments. The way the chassis and body fit together is absolutely brilliant and very clever. I have never seen anything like it before. Great video too.
