Classy Saloon

An alternate from Creator set 5867 Super Speedster, inspired by Rolls-Royce and Bentley. After so many other alternates already made from this set, it becomes increasingly more difficult to come up with iconic and recognizable models. This time it turned out in a classy saloon, based on the luxurious limousines from highly exclusive brands only […]

Endurance Racer

This endurance racer is my 2nd alternative from the 31006 Highway Speedster set. Inspired by the 24h of Le Mans, the idea was to make a fast, slick looking driving machine. The Le Mans cars are characterised by their wide wheel base, short fronts, an enormous rear spoiler to increase donwforce and a low canope […]

Transformer “Toxic”

A transforming alternate from Creator set 31007 Power Mech called “Toxic”. If there’s one subject difficult to render with bricks, it’s transformers. Swiveling parts everywhere while maintaining structure integrity is one thing, but having both modes look decent is another story. Keeping all this in mind requires a lot of compromises. Add to the formula […]

Power Truck

This truck is an alternate from Creator set 31006 Highway Speedster. The idea was to make a powerful, and modern looking tractor truck. The low window, massve grill, and racing livery lines should contribute to the model’s agressive and dynamic look. Due to the size, much of the surface is covered with long plates attached […]

T-Rex

This prehistoric monster is an alternate of 31008 Thunder Wings. This T-Rex type of dinosaur is certainly something different than the official models. This beast has plenty of articulation with hip-, knee-, and ankle joints, including swiveling neck and tail. This ferocious creature can even move its arms, although it prefers to use its jaws.

To meet the request, instructions for my latest Technic model the 42000 Street Rod alternative are now available at MOCplans! Due to the work involved I […]

Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa

This classic Ferrari is my 23rd alternate of set 5867… This time an alternative model based on a real car, the legendary Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa from 1958, which dominated Le Mans during that era, and has become one of the most precious and exclusive cars in the world! Considering that this model was built […]
