6-wide versions of one of the most iconic German racing cars.
I´ve made several models, but this time no stock/street version. Only racing cars!
This green one is made to the Green Hornet from the American 24H Le Mans Series authentic colour-ñscheme!.
(I think the exact specification of the car is "Porsche 997 GT3".)
PS: I appologise for the bluish-tinted photos. I assure you that no photoshopping has been done on the pictures, and that the MOC is genuinely 100% original LEGO(c)lime-green with no painted parts!
The next one is with a ficticious colour-scheme;
Note to self; Must get rid of those Pixar "Cars" looking teeth on the front. (Yikes!)
Third and last one may look a little odd. It is supposed to fit the Martini colour-scheme, but I´m not going to do decals/stickers until some months from now. (And the Martini colours need a LOT of them) So you must squint your eyes and imagine what the finished result will look like...
Vintage wheels... Oh yeah!
Red wheels don´t really belong on a modern Martini Porsche. (I think they were last used in the 70´ies) -but they do make for a nice variation in style and colours form the other cars... -And I´m always happy to be able to use vintage Lego in my MOCs...
With this model, I took particulary care to acheive the exact curvature of the back end; Notice the half-plate height-adjusted cheese-slope after the 1x4 arc;
And lastly a group-photo of the 3 racing Porsches;
Now that I have some really cool examples to look at for inspiration, I´m totally gonna experiment with a 2 seater with the same proportions as these ones. I never could get myself to make a 2-3 stud overhang on the front wheels but these looks great.
Ah, a new Mega MOC with lots of famous racing cars - looks promising, looking forward to that! The 911 design is spot on (which is quite hard to achieve, I guess), I especially love the shape of the sides. Even the wheels work well on this type of car. Anyhow I guess all this will be great fun, vroom, vroom ... ;-)
Wow! That is an amazingly good job of modeling the 911 in 6-wide format. The front end, which is really what distinguishes the car, looks very accurate. I like how you modeled the running boards (or whatever they are called -- the flat parts beneath the doors), too.
