Do any of you remember EuroBricks member Selander’s post from a couple months ago? Well, he’s finally finished his Mercedes Actros car transporter, and it looks great. His truck looks the part, and functions just like the real thing.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5!
What better way to load a Mercedes truck than with Mercedes Smart Cars? Selander does just that, but loads it with a total of five Smart Cars, each differently coloured. Tell him what you think of his MOC here.
It seems as though everyone is building hot rods recently, and a number of them are amazing! After de-marco’s diorama last month, I thought I’d be hard-pressed to find another one this quickly. Well, the El Diablo by -zenn is truly stunning. Check out the use of track links as running boards and other details such as the excellently built skull on the front.
Built for the LUGNuts 40th Build Challenge
-zenn says he built it for the 40th monthly LUGNuts challenge. Let him know what you think in his Eurobricks topic!
Hold your breath and cover your face because there will be a sandstorm coming your way! Watch out for the fast rumbling hot rods in this one of a kind race in this hot desert. Thanks to Eurobricks member, de-marco for sharing his latest creations with us.
Race in desert
I know it has been a long while since any of us have done some decent blogging over at Classic-Town.net but we promise to bring our readers some new excitement next year. So stay tune for more updates.
For now, let me share with you this legendary racing car known as the Alfa Romeo Tipo 159 which is done by Brickshelf member, mijasper.

Under his detailed Brickshelf description, he mentioned that this speedster took the great Juan Manuel Fangio to his first Formula One World Championship in 1951. That is very most impressive. Do view his Brickshelf folder for more images.
You know what I just realized? It’s been way too long since I last blogged proper American muscle… In all seriousness though, I have missed highlighting these beautiful MOCs which showcase the kind of art that used to roll out of Denver some 50 years ago. So there, a little… no, a big something to cheer you (and me) up.
Edgy. Rough. Chrome-a-licious.
You wouldn’t expect this one to come without a sweet flame paintjob and chrome rims, would you? Now go check out the other niceties that Legogil has supplied this baby with.
Polish builder Piotr has a proven track record in MOCcing. Robert Kubica, in turn, has a proven track record in F1 racing. Obviously, combining those two can only lead to awesomeness.
Yellow and black - the best Renault colour combo ever?
Renault have done quite a bit of work on their new F1 car, and so has Piotr who’s been improving this one over the course of the last 6 months. Such detail in F1 cars is rarely seen in this scale, and personally I can assure you that the revised rear wing is clearly visible here… It’s a pity that the new retro livery hasn’t managed to bring Renault too much luck this season though.
Latvian AFOL Sprogis_Peteris has been in the MOCcing scene for about a year now and his contributions have kept getting better all the time. His latest builds are truly impressive, but none more so than this futuristic yet retro-looking convertible design study.
Gotta love that lateral line!
Who is Chris Bangle then, you might ask. Well, he was the controversial yet universally acclaimed designer of BMW over the last 20 years, responsible for reshaping the company’s image with automobiles such as the Z4, among others. See the parallels there?
To celebrate and honour the 50th anniversary of Volkswagen’s “Type 2″ model, our Classic-Town.net blogger, MetroiD has decided to build his brilliant own rendition with just 4-stud wide. Take a look at his Type 2 “T1″ model and his new Type 2 “T2″ successor. To me, both of these models are just so lovely.
When I saw Brickshelf user, legofrik’s classic town cars cargo on rail transportation, the simplicity of the design of the cargo trailer and the various Classic Town cars design simply made me wants to find out where the cargo is heading to.
Bringing Classic Town cars across the country
Is there any sight more sweet than a red convertible?
MOCpages user and car fan Anthony Dunne has created a stylish 1967 Ford Galaxie. As I may have mentioned earlier, I love cars and I love classic cars even more. This is a great MOC, with a blocky build that still conveys the lines of the real deal. Check out the MOCpage for more angles, or head over to Anthony’s homepage for more sweet rides!
