Another alternate of Creator set 5867: #14 Muscle car. Muscle cars are particularly well known from the US, and basically consist of a stock car with a high performance, often V8 engine. They look quite ordinary and square, but have some specific features that give muscle cars their unique character. As an exemple one can […]

Alternate #19 of set 5867 Super Speedster: Wheel Loader. This type of heavy duty work vehicle is often seen on mining sides. Different than the alternates of this set before, the challenge here was making it as authentic as possible, and at the same time including working functions. When you can choose any part you […]
Alternate #16 of set 5867: Dune Buggy. This off-road racing vehicle is capable of taking any obstacle. Due to its light weight and a strong V4 engine on the back, it’s not only robust, but also quite fast, ideal for off-road racing events.
Alternate 12 of set 5867: Motorbike. Taking a break from cars, the next alternate in this series became a motorbike. It was a bit of a stretch, because not all parts, especially the wheels are not very suitable for a chopper. It was more to see what else could be done besides cars, and if […]
Alternate 15 from set 5867: Go Kart. Pretty much all racingdrivers start in go karts. There’s a good chance that you’ve tried one of those yourself. Due to their wide chassis and very low point of gravity, they are very stable on the circuit. Though they have small, often 1 cylinder engines, they still have […]
A historic racer; alternate # 7 of Creator set 5867. Long before people were familiar with downforce and concerned about safety, drivers already risked their lives to race against each other. Racing cars back then looked more like bullets on wheels…
My 2nd alternate of Creator set 5867: a Classic car. Inspired by the American vehicles of the 60’s, in which cars were more of a status symbol than anything else. Not surprisingly cars turned out rather big with lots of cool little features, details and interesting colour combinations to make sure to draw the attention […]
Alternate #5 of Creator set 5867: Offroader. The classic boxy style of a Jeep, no nonsense, purely functional, without any unnecessary features. So no windows, no doors, no roof, just a rollbar, a winch and some spotlights for optimal visibility. Off roading in its purest sense, like it’s meant to be.
My 1st alternate from Creator set 5867: Tractor truck. Exploring the possibilities and limitations of this set my first try turned out into this truck with a big cabin, which can be tilted, opening doors and fifth wheel. I thought this was the best I could do with this set. Never have been so wrong, […]
