This is every vintage car fanatics dream, the barn find. You’re passing through a rural area, decide to stop for lunch at a little greasy spoon. As you dig into your chicken fried steak an old timer at the counter spots your hat, a distinctive but maybe obscure car logo (mine would be an old VW Wolfsburg crest) and walks over. As he drops in the seat across from you he points at your hat “you like old cars huh?” As you nod yes with a mouth full of food he tells you about the old car he has in his barn. He bought it 40 years ago and was going to fix it up, but it’s just been sitting there covered with a tarp ever since. You agree that this needs to be seen, and the rest is a hell of a story for the people in your car club. Builder Norton74 shows us what this might look like with a classic Ford Mustang, and it’s a dream come true.
If you don’t immediately recognize this car, or if you don’t know who Ken Block is, watch this! Lachlan cameron obviously does, recreating the 1400 brake horsepower, four wheel drive monster. The LEGO version is also radio controlled, complete with it’s own action video. The only thing missing is the smoking tires.
While the corsair is my favorite WWII fighter, the mustang is a close second. Most planes of the era were so drab (literally) and unexciting, but not the mustang, she was shiny, fast and beautiful. This version by Milan CMadge is the best I've seen at this scale, right down to the dihedral.
This appeals to me on so many levels. The Mustang is one of my favorite WWII fighters, and this supremely accurate 1/10 scale model by crash_cramer is just jaw-dropping. It's detailed inside and out, with special attention to structural accuracy. The chroming is a combination of parts ordered on Bricklink and clever use of chrome skinning vinyl. The canopy is custom, and while that may put off some purists out there, I'm personally totally ok with it. It all adds up to a stunning model of one of the greatest airplanes ever to soar through the skies.
There's quite a bit of crafty building going on in this little speed demon by builder ER0L. Take a look at the windshield, it's window panes captured in clips. And check out the trademark side profile, that's a subtle but necessary detail to make this a Mustang. All the lines are correct on this MOC, making it instantly recognizable. Not an easy task when building 6-wide.
She's one of the most iconic muscle cars ever created, the Ford Mustang. Whether you're a fan or not, you can't deny the influence and popularity of this little sports car that burst onto the scene in 1964. Now Peteris Sprogis has created one of the finest reproductions in brick I've ever seen, it's just awesome.
