This endurance racer is my 2nd alternate of Creator set 31006, Highway Speedster.
About this creation
This set is already quite tricky to build alternates with, so it's not easy to come up with original ideas, especially when others have already presented many other models. So I went for my version of an endurance racer, inspired by the 24h of Le Mans.
I wanted to keep the side profile really low, so it gets this fast, racing look.
The rear turned out quite nice with the characterizing big spoiler.
The wide body combined with the small window fits perfectly with these type of cars.
Another typical characteristic is the air scoop on the roof and the large diffuser.
What an absolute cracker!! Wonderful shape and good colour blocking too. I know this is a difficult set to use but the end results are very attractive. I assume you have seen the latest creator set at this scale.
Fabulous design. Absolutely great. Will you publish another book like you did with the 5867 Super Speedster alternatives but for 31006? I bought your two 5867 books and they are really worth it.
Look for "The Lego Build It Book" on Amazon.com
Great detailing with the spoiler, grille, scoop, rear, striping... Nice proportions. I'll echo others and say this is definitely my favorite sports car alternative for this set. Your angled framing of the photos adds to the sporty feel.
And I'm done with my reverse build of this amazing model. Took me nearly three hours, But that's because I aim for a 100% accurate recreation. Don't believe me? Come see for yourself: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/389645
