Open Racing Car




Let me introduce the alternative model of LEGO Creator 10242.
The instruction shows how to build Open Racing Car through classic MINI Cooper MK Ⅶ.

MOC was inspired by Caterham Seven and Ferrari 166 Spyder Corsa.

I hope this alternative model meets your needs.
Thank you, enjoy.

UPDATE 2016.11.15
Note that you can add a roof by using the extra parts of 10242 sets.
I attached sample images in the gallery.
Of course, your imagination is the instructions!

UPDATE 2016.10.27
If you don't like its rear-light, I suggest to change it.
See the bricksafe gallery :-)

    Great fun to build! It is very creative made. I like in particular the front (of course), the exhaust pipes, the hidden motor, and the steering wheel made of a minifig shield. Thanks for sharing it!

    However, the curved bricks 1x4 on the underside of the car are pretty weak connetced and fall apart every time you lift up the model from the table. So I fixed it. I just re-arranged the 12 brick modified 1x1 and added some plates. Now the 16 studs long bow is a single unit, which is connetced to 6 studs. See photo section. Now it is sturdy, and it's got a even smoother body line underneath.

    I really love this build, it looks even better than the Cooper.

    It seem to require more 1x1 plates than supplied by 10242, i need to find ways to work around constantly during the build. (not wanting to add more from my own stock)
    Which lead to some confusion.

    But the result is well worth it!  Beautiful, creative (very different build from the original model), save money (save the money from a caterham seven~)

    The author even designed a range of modifications for you to choose from,  sweet!
