While only time will tell I have a sneaking suspicion that Mike Psiaki may have just started a fad with his NASCAR racer. It’s small, colourful, easy enough to make and an excellent design.
Stage 1) Mike makes one, Stage 2) I make two, Stage 3) Mike shows a how-to, Stage 4) Instant fad?
“everything he touches turns to gould”
I couldn’t help myself.
B’doom ching :|
I think you should change your about section simply to that
Time to dig out all those sticker sheets!
Please please please God don’t let this get ruined and butchered like Cave Racers.
I wonder if I have time to make one?
The cheese slope requirements might help keep it a little more controlled. And the fact that Mike’s original is so excellent there’s little scope for alteration. And the fact that they’re based on real things which limit ‘creativity’.
They don’t take too long to build.
I’m going to have a go at one today.
I think Mike has started a big craze now!
If only I had the pieces I need, I mean I have all those pieces, just not in matching colours! Ahaha
Nice. He got the COT front splitter and rear wing on there. One artistic liberty is the side mirrors, which aren’t like that on NASCAR racecars. Very amazing looking.
Cool! I wanna build one, I love racing! Is there a parts list available, I’ll have to place some bricklink orders since I’m all out of usable parts and a parts list would help for sure!
Looks like Cracklink may see an upswing in sticker sales.
Hmmmm…. now that you mention it, I’ll try making my own. #66 it is!
What is Cracklink?
@Tananavalley – Cracklink is a “descriptive” name for Bricklink, due to its extremely addictive nature.
If it has to go through four phases first, then is the fad really “instant”?
Tell me about addictive… Thanks to discount coupons and finding half of my wants on one store and half on other store, I wound up buying a lot more stuff than I’d originally planned (For some reason I ordered 40 Basic swords, it was probably a childhood trauma, I always wanted to have more of those *___*).
Shame on you Tim for not giving it an Aussie flavour and making V8 Supercars.
@Josh – Thanks for the info.
As you can tell, I’m in love with this fad. Glad the Cave Racers are gone!
