:necro: by almost 2 years!

I've acquired a few more sets since I made this topic, therefore I've done some more alt-builds. I don't have pictures of all of them, but I do have a bunch saved in LDD, so I'll post some screenshots of them at some point. I'll start with the ones I do have pictures of.

First up is a retro Formula 1 racer built from the Mini Cooper:

I also built a Jeep Wrangler with the set, but never got around to finishing the interior or taking pictures of it. It's a shame, because I thought it was really good.

Next up is an eagle, plus eaglets and a nest, built from the Park Animals set:

Another view:

And last up for this round is an F4U Corsair built from the Blue Power Jet:

Really happy with this one. Also the set is fantastic, if a bit pricey.

Love the curves on the F1 racer (British racing green!) and the Corsair (nice stand btw), and the texturing of the eagle is interesting, especially with plenty of details and angles already crammed in there.

Out of interest, have you tried making the wheels stand a little proud from the car? I'm not necessarily advocating putting them on big long legs (see above) but with them so flush to the car it's probably going to have a rather large turning circle.

Thanks, guys! I love doing these so it's nice to see that other people appreciate them too.

I'll be honest, I barely put any research into the build. Unlike the Corsair, the car wasn't based on any particular vehicle, and in the end it only kind of fits the look. I'd love to pretend I knew what I was doing when I was building it, but the whole thing was built simply because of the way the windshield parts looked around the grille.

I'm loving the Corsair. One of the best WW2 Aircraft builds I've seen so far.
