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. […]

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 […]

Offroader

Alternate model of the Creator set 10252 Volkswagen Beetle. This Offroader was built for the alternate model challenge on Brixtar, a former mobile platform, and it won first place overall. I really wanted to use all the wheel arch pieces, but in a slightly different configuration. The 90 degree rotation led to the design of […]

Formula Racer

Let me present this highly detailed alternate model, a Formula racer from the 10242 Mini Cooper, a Creator Expert set. It’s not based after a particular model, although it certainly has resemblance with the Jaguar F1 cars from a decade ago, also due to the colours. It furthermore includes a lot of the features from […]

Retro Roadster

This Retro Roadster is an alternative model of Creator set 31024. After a long time of absence due to the bigger Technic project of the Predator, it’s now time to introduce another alternate. This time it’s the 31024 set that got a special treatment. With its classic tapered bonnet and the curves over the rear […]
