Tim Inman (Rabidnovaracer) gives us this snazzy Maserati Tipo 151/3, built for the LUGNUTS “Order By Number” Challenge. Some notable points of interest, minifig ski poles for the windshield pillars and Wolverines claws for the Maserati logo.

Shannon Sproule (Shannon Ocean) has a very odd interpretation of the Batman in 2025. It’s for the LUGNuts 51st Build Challenge: Batmobile 2025.
There are too many fantastic entries this month into LUGNut‘s Cars, Too theme, so I do believe I’m just going to list my favorites here, in no particular order. We are, after all, big fans of all things Pixar here at this humble blog. So! Onto the cars. Tim Inman, with Giselle Grocery Getter: Peter Continue reading →
Continuing our theme of German automobiles, Vimal Patel (vmln8r) takes us back to the 19th century with his Benz Patent-Motorwagen from 1886 — an entry for both the April LEGO Technic Challenge and the LUGNuts Autos aus Deutschland challenge. Vimal’s car is remote-controlled, with working gears, chains, pistons, flywheels and differentials.
The fuel that powers all those racers in the recent LUGNuts challenge has to come from somewhere. And something has to defend that fuel from meth-roaches. Wait, what? Take it away, Mark Stafford! Click through for the full backstory.
Not content with bringing us cool LEGO sets, Mark Stafford (lego_nabii) also continues to bring us cool MOCs. Another for the LUGNUTs challenge. The Martian Polar Pavonis Rally takes place annually (a Martian year is 687 days) between Schmit Ice Base at the Southern pole and the MSA Research station at Pavonis Mons, near the Continue reading →
Firas Abu-Jaber provides a very tasty entry to the latest LUGNUTS challenge. Firas uses a great mixture of techniques to get his shapes right and captures the spirit of a Dakar rally beautifully.
LUGNUTS is currently running an interesting monthly challenge and Peter Blackert (lego911) has more than risen to it. His ’55 Chevreolet Cameo appears to have all the little details just in the right spot. I’m sure Don McLean would appreciate it.
Last month‘s challenge over at Lugnuts has, as always, yielded some amazing builds. Peter Blackert‘s Austin FX4 London Black Cab caught my eye in particular. I’ll be right honest — I thought it was a hearse. Seeing it’s something different doesn’t phase me in the least, though. I won’t deny the sleek styling and fantastic Continue reading →
This month’s LUGNuts challenge — Kickin’ it Oldschool! — is coming to a close, with many great cars and trucks from the pre-1950 era. Here are just a couple of my favorites. Nathan Proudlove rolls out a 1940 Ford pickup truck, tricked out to please any skateboarder: Tim Inman (rabidnovaracer) heads to the beach in Continue reading →
Herbie is one of my favorite “movie” cars. Tyler did a perfect job…with the added bonus of PowerFunctions! Lovely, lovely build. This was built for Lugnuts 30th Challenge, which is inspiring some awesome cars, if you ask me….which of course you didn’t.
Fun fact–I am, in fact, a sucker for classic cars. I went to my prom in a very, very lovely 1967 Firebird, and the thing simply purred. And while my building style makes it difficult for me to translate that sort of enthusiasm into LEGO, Peter Blackert does not appear to have the same issue Continue reading →
Lino Martins wishes everyone a very happy holidays, as Santa and Natasha make a second appearance next to this sweet 1966 Ford Galaxie, part of this month’s LUGNuts challenge, A Galaxie of Possibilities. Click the pic to read Lino’s full write-up.
My wife and I are dreading the inevitable death of Stormtrooper, our ’93 Honda Accord with 220K miles on it. She hates all post 1993 cars and she squeals with delight every time she sees any classic cars with fins, flames or hydraulics. Appropriate that some exceptionally good models have turned up as part of Continue reading →
I’m pretty sure we’ve blogged this before. OK so we’ve kind of blogged it before but Ralph Savelsberg (madphysicist) has given Firas’ scene a redux for the latest LUGNUTs challenge. This is truly the best Routemaster I’ve seen at minifig scale.
