This is my own LEGO version of the Dodge Copperhead, "Concept Vehicle", built prior to the dark ages. Featured highly in Gran Turismo and Gran Turismo 2.
About this creation
Thank you for looking!

[edit: you don't have to read the captions ;D later i might change the pic orientation from 'thumbnail' to my others where a large pic is presented on the main page. this way you don't HAVE to click the pic to see a larger version. my first MOCpages practice post, woo!]

PIC005
The Copperhead was supposed to have excellent handling due to its wheelbase being stretched to the far limits of the cars chassis. In Gran Turismo, this car was a total blast to drive and dominated its class easily.


PIC007
My rendition does NO JUSTICE to this cars beauty in real life - if you didn't already know about it, search the net for "Dodge Copperhead" and enjoy!



PIC009
A shot of the interior. There's no top, soft or hard. I did make a simple rollbar from the original Viper RT/10 though, just for fun (not shown). See the crude rear-view mirror, the shift knob, console where you could stick somethin, and evidence of my younger self's ne'er-do-well activities.



PIC012
Since using these old style wheels back then, along with those cooler looking "slicks" the same size (my set are on another car), these were all built at roughly the "Technic guy" scale. (??, for lack of a better term)

Although for some reason, the Technic guy doesn't fit into it too well :P



PIC013
This overhead shot surprisingly gives an illusion to the cars smooth lines in real life!




PIC014
A shot of the engine bay. need a close-up..






Looks kinda primitive by today's standards but she was a very fulfilling build!



My most recent SAVE of Gran Turismo has my best garage and replays attached to it. In the Simulation campaign, I started from scratch with the arduous task of obtaining all of the Gold Medals for the B License!

The prize?

One well earned, brand new "Copperhead Orange Metallic" Dodge Concept Car.

Quoting killswitch95 [DEMON] wow... im a car guy, and ive never heard of this car, i binged it, and wow, its a beauty... if you mind, kind of an idea that you could try, how bout entertaining the idea of making the Dodge Charger R/T (1999 concept car)
[[ha! ty for your inspiration: i edited "google" to "search the net" LOL]] aw man you said it, she sure is a beauty. plus it must be one of the most fully-realized concept cars never put into production... a LEGO '99 Charger RT O_O?? that. is gonna be a toughy. first i'd have to determine a good scale... she has quite the curves herself ;)

Quoting Steffen Kasteleiner Thank you for your comments, Eric! I'm glad you like my trucks. There's just something amazing about American Big Rigs, especially the older ones... I am tempted to start another one today, actually! :-) By the way: I can't wait to see some stuff from after your dark ages! It's always interesting to see the light years inbetween childhood builds and advanced adult builds... Take care, and thanks again!
Thank you and to you as well! i think so too, they've been a staple of the roadways for sooo long, plus my dad drove OTR for a few years. it was COOL! and i'd love to share a few things i've been designing in SR 3D Builder lately (mostly Minifig-scale cars). i'm trying to refine a few ideas and maybe order up the pieces from Bricklink first! for now i'll have to ask you what you had in mind to build today :D

Quoting Tim C Thanks for all your kind words, Eric. This is a great start on MOCpages. I like your use of SNOT and your fearlessness of the exposed stud. Looks great on this build. Welcome to MOCpages and I can't wait to see what more you have in store for us. Thanks also for adding me as a fave, I will do the same in return, though mostly so I can keep an eye out for your new MOCs;).
it's my pleasure. i think you have a great sense of scale and color! thank you as well -- i can't wait to post more stuff! these are the last MOCs i built.

oh! i know that steering wheel was copied from someone (online) long ago -- please forgive me as i do not remember who. deserved credit goes to them; it's a sharp design for the scale.
