I think that it's safe to say the response to this challenge took Lino and I both by surprise. So many entries that I am starting the round up early just to keep up. The idea in this challenge was to build a Lego vehicle using less common colours. We wanted to see some variety and we got it. Check it out.
Ralph Savelsberg (Madphysicist) is first out of the gate with a new light grey and dark red coach built collaboratively with Ed Diment (Lego Monster)
Ralph also built a builder's van.
followed by a particularly stunning '60 Impala Coupe
and a 5-wide British Police van.
Finally we have an Audi TT.
Tim Inman (rabidnovaracer) shows up in an orange Porsche 914.
Duq from Ireland shows us his white hotrod.
and a "Classic Coupe," in tan.
And the crazy prolific Lego911 starts us off with an orange Renault.
Followed by a Chevrolet Nomad
then a '60's BMW CSL
and another BMW
then a Mini
and a pair of '57 Corvettes.
Next is a pair of Lambos. Miuras to be exact,
a pair of '50's racing Ferraris; a 166 MM Vignale Barchetta and a 212 Export Supperleggera Barchetta (Touring),
a Citroen DS
a '49 Ford Woody Wagon,
and finally, a shrunken version of Lego's dark blue VW Beetle.
I think next month, I'll just pick my favourite to blog. Whew!
Matt Armstrong (Monsterbrick) surprises us all with his lime and purple constructicons.
John Royal (Charger Hornet) shows us a 1964 Chevelle.
Newcomer paramat has a go at the challenge with a custom brown microcar.
William Ward presents a fig-scale Land Rover.
Dylan Denton is another LUGNuts rookie and proves he's no slouch with a (nearly) studless white hot rod named, "White Hot," of all things.
Gold_2's '64 convertible
.eti's wacky purple and red school bus.
Lino shows his Passion with a '56 Chevy pickup. Check it out, remote controls driving and show-hopping action!
Peer Krueger (mahjqa) builds the General Lee from memory.
That's all the time I have this month folks. I am off to Brickcon tomorrow to see some of these fabulous LUGNuts cars in person. I'll do a particularly biased write-up of the 'con when I get back. For those of you with last-minute Colour-Me-Strange entries, I'm sorry I missed you.
October's challenge promises to be the best yet. It will also be the last time I blog every vehicle submitted. After that, I will be highlighting my favourites. I hope that does not dissuade any from participating, but blogging that many entries has become fairly time consuming.
See you all after the 'con.
