Gilcelio is going nuts in the current Iron Builder round and this build is the result of that. While I love a good vehicle as much as the next guy, it is way better when a builder puts that vehicle in context with a good backdrop. Santa’s hot rod is a great build but what I really dig is the action going on around it.

Sm 01 has turned out this awesome Model T Hot Rod. Not only is a beauty but it’s motorized as well. Check out the video for all the features.
I love the angles, lines and exposed frame on this beauty. The olive green is a good color choice as well. I don’t know if it based on the British Ocelot or not, as there are similarities and differences and Cole doesn’t say in his description. Regardless, Cole Blaq has created a killer off-road monster here.
Tim Inman, AKA RabidNovaRacer, is off to the races with this sleek race car. I love the angles and curves that he was able to achieve on this beauty. It’s definitely full of win and raring to go!
It’s been awhile seen we seen a bike here, so I was thrilled when Stephan Jonsson built this wonderful motorcycle:
The Triumph Scrambler is combination of off road dirt bike and cruiser, with the beefed up suspensions and tyres. The build is accurate to the source material and is recreated fantastically with bricks. I loved how he’s able to shape body of the motorcycle, while adding just the right amount of details in the engine block. But what really impressed me is that the shell and seat can be removed to reveal the sweet underbody:
And the kicker? It is built entirely from the Mini Cooper set.
And check out the ever so elegant back:
Vince Toulouse has a keen eye for style with spacecraft, and one of his common hallmarks is a stylistic nod to art-deco and the extravagant elegance of the forward-thinking 1920s and ’30s. His latest clean mean machine is this fantastic white and gold ship, which looks ready to pull up to the curb and have a dapper gentleman invite you to a night of refined space-partying and literary discussions. (Or maybe I’m just thinking of Midnight in Paris.)
Serbian builder Milan (Ultimate-Design Bricks) wanted to create a build that combined his passions for bikes and camping. So when he discovered artist Kevin Cyr’s Camper Tricycle project, he knew that was what he wanted to recreate.
Milan’s model is packed with details, and he provides a full breakdown on his website. The tricycle features front and back suspension, rear differential, 180 degree steering, working pedals and chain link drive. The camper has working doors, a retractable sunshade and a plethora of storage areas and personal effects.
Camper tricycles totally need to become a real thing! Oh wait, hills…
