I am here with my lastest car. I showed it in the LEGO World Utrecht 2015.
It is one of the most famous sports car in history, and the fastest production car on its time, the legendary Mercedes-Benz 300SL, usually called "Gullwing".
It is built in scale 1/10.5. With a final size of 21x13x53 studs(17x10x42 cm).
The weght is 1.5Kgs, and has around 1500 parts
It is powered by 4 PF motors, 2 IR receivers and one PF lithium battery / AAA battery.
To get better soft curves I have used light grey pneumatic tube. But all of them have standar soft axle lengths: 7, 11, 12, 14, 16 and 19 studs, so you can use soft axles if you want.
The gullwing doors have lock. you need to push the little black part in the door to open it.
It has steering with working steering wheel (PF M motor).
Openable bonnet and trunk.
Unfortunately there are not enough space under the bonnet to add a 6L fake engine, so this time is a only a few plates to show where it must be.
The car is drive by a single PF XL motor, and the max speed is around 3kph(1.9mph).
In the rear trunk is the battery.
Realistic suspension in both axles: double wishbone in the front and swing axle in the rear.
Small size car doesn't mean poor functions, here the first proof: 4 speeds sequential gearbox.
In this car I release a whole new gearbox, 4th gen. It is very small and very very reliavable. In this car it doesn't include auto-stop function for gearbox motor (PF M motor), so you must stop the motor by yourself.
Of course it include speed indicator from the interior of the car.
And the second proof: drum brakes in all wheels.
Yes, brakes like my other big cars. In this time to save some space I have used the interior side of the rim like the drum. Powered by a M motor.
Quick bodywork disassemble. You only nned to remove 2 pins ans 2 small liftarms and the bodywork can be removed in one piece.
"Most wanted" picture.
Finally a picture to show you the real size difference between this 1/10.5 scale car and one of my previous 1/8 cars.
