Ferrari F138
***I UPDATED THIS CREATION! GO TO MY FERRARI F138 UPGRADE PAGE!***
About this creation
This is my first MOC. I hope it's a good one! The Ferrari F138 is Ferrari's 2013 F1 car. F138 is a reference to the following. F: Ferrari. 13: 2013 F1 season. 8: tribute to F1's V8 engine, because in 2014 there will be a new turbo v6 for all the cars. This is because the FIA is wanting to be more "Eco-friendly", but personally I think that it's just another excuse to make the cars slower. So this might be the last naturally aspirated powered Ferrari F1 car that we'll ever see, an that saddens me because the current 2.4L V8 has be pretty good. It was no 3.0L V10, but it's a very good formula. If I were the FIA president I'd make the engine formula 4.0L V12's with no more than 1,500hp. You know, just to keep things under control ;)



The cars are both 12 studs wide and 30 studs long. They're way too big to be on the minifigure scale, but I don't care. I tried making the car with as many details as possible and as lite as possible. I added details such as radiators in the sidepods and a V8 engine. Sorry I didn't take pics of these things, but I promise that when I update the car I will show these things and maybe post instructions.



Overhead shot of Fernando Alonso's car. He's been doing pretty we'll so far, but he can't beat that German kid. The one that drives the car that gives you wings. I'm talking about Sebastian Vettel.



Here's the front wing and suspension details, which isn't that good to be honest. I didn't know what parts to use when making the cascade elements of the front wing, so I just decided to use slope pieces. It's not great, just okay. I'm kind of running out of ideas to improve it.



The front of the car. Felipe Massa's in the driver's seat, and in the hot seat if he doesn't start winning or scoring points. I can only imagine what his career would be like if he didn't have that terrible head injury back in 2009. Would he be a world champion? Multiple time champion? Only God knows.



The rear of the car. There's no diffuser because there wasn't enough space. But there is a hazard light in case it rains!



You can see more rear wing details with this shot. Notice the little gills on the side panels of the wing. You'll find these on almost every F1 car.



The sidepods. Behind the sidepods is the exhaust system, it might be a little hard to see because it's black. If you are wondering about the random yellow piece on the sidepod, that is suppose to be the Shell logo. I don't like using stickers because they just peel off.

Overall, it was a fun challenge and it took some creative thinking to build this MOC. I'm defiantly going to improve the car(s). I want to redesign the front and rear wings and also try to do some SNOT work on the front of the car. Thanks for visiting. Please comment on things you like, dislike, or if you have any suggestions. :)

Quoting joel seow love the car! I really like Massa and I think it's fine if he continues to race with ferrari. How about Bianchi? I wonder if your sidepods are a little on the wide side, you know? you could see how i tried to shape mine at http://mocpages.com/moc.php/349028
I see, your sidepods are good. But your car is 10 studs wide, while mine is 12, so that might be why my sidepods are a little out of proportion.

This is really nice! My only complaint, however, is the quality of the pictures; this MOC would get MUCH more likes with clearer pictures (though my own photography isn't something I am proud about ;-) Still, a 5/5!

Quoting TheLegoNoitAll . Nice work! All details look great! much better than my first MOC ;) Welcome to MOCpages Sam! I hope you enjoy it here :) I'm looking forward to seeing more of your MOCs! PS. I would try to use brighter lighting when taking the photos, or at least use a photo editing program to brighten it up a bit, it's quite hard to see all these wonderful details!
Ahh, thought that someone would bring the poor picture quality up. That is because I used an iPod camera with bad pixel quality. I'll use a real camera nexttime. Thanks for you comment!

Quoting MortalSwordsman . Hi Sam! Yes these are great. Really like the wings and side pods, and there is even one or two studs showing just the way I like it. They would look awesome next to my McLarens. I agree with Matt, Massa is a great guy and on his day is super fast, but he looks like he is past his prime. I am a Hamilton fan but the way he won the Championship (by beating Massa by 1 point on the final corner of the final lap of the final race!!!) would have been soul destroying for any one. Great work Sam I look forward to more.
You're right about that. 1 point makes all the difference. Thanks for your comment. Your Mclaren's are pretty nice.

Quoting Nick Barrett A sensational first moc, and I enjoyed your commentary. Maybe Nico Hulkenberg won't regret that move to Sauber after all... Welcome to MOCpages!
Thank you Nick. I thought that good commentary would make the page more welcoming. You might be right about Hulkenberg, former Sauber drivers seem to get a job at Ferrari in the future. After all, that's what happened to Massa.

Quoting matt rowntree Welcome to Mocpages Sam. A fine debut. The Scuderia are well represented here. Love the side pods and the wings. I see the issue with the front wing, but that's because the F1 cars have WAY too much stuff going on it. Love the commentary as well. I agree that Massa is gone. His biggest blow wasn't the head injury, it was losing the championship by one point in his home race several years back. Sad. Personally, I always liked Kimi. He's such a robot! My only criticism on your cars really would be the size of the wheels, they seem a little small. Other than that, these are great!
Thanks Matt. I tried to put bigger wheels on the car but the wheels I thought about using were too big. It would just look awkward so I decided to stick with the smaller wheels. I appreciate the feedback.
