I like that Micro chapparal. Very tasty.

I shall have to raid the Nippers LEGO box(es), see what I can come up with.
The was one guy on Flickr I found that built LMP1s in Micro scale, using a grinder, and glue, to make up fabulous models...

That Flying Lizard Porsche is pretty cool. Funny how grown men have a soft spot for all things Lego. I bought a Renault R30 F1 car kit a few years ago made by one of the knock off Lego brands. They had a McLaren as well. Highcroft was sponsored by a company that made a model of their car out of wooden block a couple of years ago. Automoblox I think it was. Not quite the same but still a child's toy.

Funny how it looks like a DP. Kind of prophetic.

Maybe this nice documentary... blocumentary about "AFOL" (=Adult Fan of Legos) interests some here:



The car dude I linked here is in it. Otherwise nothing to do with lego cars specifically.

I'm not "AFOL" like in that document, but lets say whenever I have digged up Legos for sisters' kids etc. it has been a good excuse...

Timely bump for this thread, seeing as one of the larger Lego Technic sets for 2015 is basically an R18 with a green/grey (nose)/black/white livery. Big Honking Fin included, but the new part for the fenders don't have holes in it.

I'll post a picture when one is released that doesn't have a massive copyright stamp on it...

Kind of awesome that the general LMP shape is becoming this recognizable... also sad that it is with the fin, but maybe you can build it without it
