4×4 Offroader

The colours of the Fiat 500 model reminded me of the classic 4×4 Offroader set 5510 from 1986. Also the wheels are in both cases white and identical in size. So why not make a modern interpretation of this set using exclusively parts from the Fiat 10271 set? It was easier said than done and […]

Cobra Roadster

Built for the TLCB Lock-down competition. After my two previous alternate models from the 10265 Ford Mustang, a pickup truck inspired by the F100 and the GT04 Sportscar inspired by the legendary GT40, there was one more iconic car from this era that I wanted to replicate which also has a strong connection to Ford; […]

GT04 Sportscar

This GT super sports-car is another alternative model from Creator set 10265 Ford Mustang. After previously designing an alternate model based on the 1970 F100 pickup truck, this car ended up being heavily inspired by the legendary GT40. Even though both vehicles are from the same car manufacturer from the same era, the models seem […]

Vintage Pickup Truck

Inspired by my 10265 alternative, the idea was now to build a pickup from the 10252 Beetle set as well after the Offroader creation earlier on. Because the parts seemed more suitable for a vintage model, this car is based on American pickup trucks from the 1930’s. During that time several car manufacturers produced pickup […]

Pickup Truck

The idea was to create an alternative that would be a suitable complementary model to the LEGO Creator Expert set 10265; a Ford Mustang from 1967. The result is this pickup truck mainly inspired by a 1970’s F100. With over 1100 pieces it reuses almost 80% of the parts included in the original set which […]

Sport-Coupe

This Sport-Coupe is an another alternative model of Creator set 5867 Super Speedster. It’s amazing to see that even years later this set has still new surprises to offer. The model features opening doors. Sport coupes are usually the more sporty variants of the common model, but with a sloping roof line at the rear. […]

Model Optimization: a 42083 Showcase

In 2018 the Bugatti Chiron came out in LEGO Technic. It’s quite a complex model, but very dense and seems inefficient and consequently negatively impacts some of its functions. Time for a redesign thus where the starting point was to keep the same modular build with almost identical interconnection points, and keep the overall looks […]

Big Rig

Classified as Top Secret case 10262: 007’s alternative vehicle of choice. The request was to review the new 10262 Aston DB5 Bond edition. However because Brixtar was all about re-using the bricks you have, the request was if I could build an alternative model and from this point of view review the model through an […]

LMP Racer

This LMP endurance racer is alternate 24 of Creator set 5867 Super Speedster. After the endurance racer alternate from 31006 the question was if it would be possible to build something similar from set 5867. One of the earlier alternates also represented a LMP racer, but that one was an open version from a few […]
