    Thnx all! In a few weeks my first book on true Lego scale modeling will be released worldwide. People who are curious to what extreme level things can be modeled withLego might like it. It will be cool 200 page full color and hardcover coffeetable piece.

    @ Ryan: It takes about 3 months to do a thing like this. I try to put in as much detail as possible, so the research takes some time as well.
    @Lunajammer: You might not believe it, but I am not a Lego freak as such. I never buy sets. I just like modelbuilding and with Lego it works best for me. Nowadays I have the proper contacts to get the parts I need, and that helps a lot.

    Can I join with a custom Lego build, 1:13 scale?
    Something like this:

    Planning on a very special 379 with trailer.

    Harley Davidson Cali style Road King 1/10 in Lego
     
    Hi modeling friends,
    Haven't posted in a while but just dropped a Cadillac lowrider in the cars forum, and want to share this bike with you:
    I have a big passion for customized trucks, cars and bikes. I especially love the Harly Davidson Cali style lowriders, as featured by this model because of the awesome colors and extreme customation. This Harley Davidson Road King,scaled 1:10 is built out of genuine LEGO bricks, in sand and dark green rare colors. Many parts were industrially chromed (plating on plastics), or gold spray painted. 
    Hope you like it!

    Cadillac Fleetwood Le Cabriolet Lowrider 1/10
    It has been a while since I have build something, and posted it here. After some motorcycles and trucks, it was time to build a car, which I do rarely. Not that I don't like cars, on the contrary...I love em, especially the heavily customized ones. A tricked out Cadillac Fleetwood Le Cabriolet lowrider in 1/10 scale had been on my wishlist for a while. As some of you who know my work from the truck and bike sections might recall: I build with Lego bricks. Not that I am a particular Lego freak as such, but I just like the stuff to build something unique. Out of the box thinking instead of out of the box building, so to say. I like the challenge to get the cars geometry in place with standard Lego bricks, and that can be quite a job.
    After some extensive research on lowrider technicalities and Cadillac 1980s frame design, I started work. This model is constructed out of 100% genuine Lego bricks. The green dark green color combination is challenging as many parts are quite rare. Many bricks are industrially retro-chromed with plating on plastics true chrome technology…. so true metal layers there. The gold on some parts, like the rims, is spray painted. For the first time I used UV printing technology to apply a mural directly on the bricks on the trunk lid. The only non-Lego parts are some wires and the ‘Rollerz’ club logo, which is lasercut from Acrylic. All in all a lot of work, but truly worth the effort.
    Hope you like it!

    Together with Lego build Harley Davidson


    Batteries, pumps, and subs

    And the hood removed.

    I liked this build so much.. thinking of a Continental now...

    Well, I can do that. At the moment I am updating a few of my models for the 2014 events. I attend a small mix of the bigger modelbuilding events and Legoshows in Europe.
    These models (most of them can be found on this forum as well) are existing ones that just get a small revamp, but after that there is new work scheduled, and I can take some WIP pictures along.
    There are no building instruction, I use refference material from internet only, and brochures from manufacturers, but you could get a nice impression from the bricks used during the WIP.

    ooh.. yes the cat... well he's quite fond of Lego. When I build he's usually sitting interrested on a pile of bricks half asleep watching me. He has never destroyed or eaten anything though.
    He's too lazy for that.

    All th eothers thanks for your comments!
