Duesenberg SJ Dual Cowl Pheaton 1/8,5

Recommended Posts

Its been a while since I build a car, and posted it here, but something new is ready, so I thought I share it.

This time it's a Duesenberg, once more fully made out of genuine LEGO bricks.

My LEGO model is based on the SJ type Dual Cowl Pheaton, by LaGrande from 1935. It is a one-off build in scale 1:8.5 (derived from the availlable wheel size that fitted this built), and consists of roughly 5000 parts. I have put in a lot of detail, like the engine (it was always painted green in a Duesenberg as far as I know), and added some retro-chromed parts as well. These parts have been industrially plated on the original ABS plastic bricks.

I made two roof setups to show the car open and closed.The doors can be opened, and the hood can be removed.

This is amazing! There are so many new shapes since my kids (and I) played with them. Very nice job!

I didn't realize at first that you used Legos. That doesn't look like anything I could have built with the Legos of my youth.

That's wild. Certainly not what I expected. Beautifully made, very original.  

Thank you very much.. I like to make different stuff just to see whats possible with alternative mediums.
