Fun With Bricks

Hanging out with the kiddos today and we had some fun building this. I thought you guys might get a kick out of it

Nice detail, though some pieces were missing (had to compromise on the mirrors).
638 pieces...took us almost 5 hours to complete.



Look at that flat 6...





Complete with bu**plug shift knob...

Haha! That was the first thing I said, too

We're going to put a single LED in each, powered by a couple button cells in the frunk.

That's ruddy cool! The detail is pretty incredible for a "blocks" kit. Might have to track one down (no pun intended).

Looks like it still has the original IMS bearing. You might want to have that replaced. Could go at any moment and then you'll have to tear it down and re-build anyway.

Dont want to be a smart ass, but the GT3 does not have a IMS bearing nor a M96 engine but a Mezger engine with a true drysump
