Maserati Race Car Transporter Fiat 642 RN2 Bartoletti
Hi, I'm back with my latest car MOC.
About this creation
First of all, this is for Ape Fight's Classic Race Teams group.

I first began building this transporter back in mid-December 2011. As you probably noticed, I'm mainly a supercar builder -- not a truck builder. So I knew it would be a challenge, but I didn't think it would be too difficult. After all, I've built a truck before (Mercedes-Benz Actros & Trailer, something that I would like to make another attempt at making one day).

So it wasn't like it was totally unfamiliar to me, though; at the same time, definitely not my "comfort zone." Progress initially began well, except for one area. I have no idea how it happened, but there is some kind of uneven-ness in the front section. There are parts that are 1/4th of a plate off.

Anyway, I soon ignored that issue, as I was too far in to take it apart and start all over again. About six or so months ago, I pretty much finished the project, save for a few bricks here and there that were the wrong color. Sadly, those bricks which I lacked are rather uncommon in blue and yellow, so it would cost too much to buy from Bricklink.com.

So I guess you could call this a "WIP" or an "abandoned" post: I won't be building this anymore. Sorry to disappoint those of you who have waited so long.

Also, the main picture was a composite edit (i.e. I used three different photos to clone in the missing parts). The rest of the pictures are not, so you will notice the wrong colors. Piece donations, anyone? :-)


Exterior

Instead of having "Maserati" lettering on the side, I chose to simply put an Italian flag there, because that yellow area is too small to put one in.

Quoting Ape Fight Argh! So close! It looks brilliant so far : ) both outside and inside. The proportions look spot on and it's ace to see opening features too. I can't give it a 5 for obvious reasons, but it would be when finished (4/5 currently). I hope you keep this intact so that you can, at some point, complete it - it's so close!!
Too bad, I'm bring out my hammer as we speak. I've lost all motivation. ;-) And I see someone has knocked it off the homepage. -LB Jr.

Thanks, everyone.
Quoting MortalSwordsman . Brilliant.... Now to photoshop our cars on the top :). Great to see you posting a vehicle again.
Maybe...I took a quick look at yours, and from what I saw, the angles aren't close enough to this one's main picture. You took yours apart, right? Do you happen to have any more pictures that I can work with? I'll take a look at Larry P.'s to see if there are any similar angles. -LB Jr.

Brilliant. I think the italian flag is a great alternative and it looks really good. Shame about the missing parts but you can hardly notice from certain views. Now to photoshop our cars on the top :). Great to see you posting a vehicle again.

Very nice truck, even with the lacking parts problems. Some cool functions and details.
