Revving up for a retro match-up

Who doesn’t love an old-school LEGO racing car? With this sweet Brabham vs Ferrari action scene, Pixel Junkie recreates the days when the top tiers of motor racing looked a bit like Mario Kart. Both cars are well-shaped and nicely detailed, right down to all the suspensions and shocks — impressive work at this scale. I like the setting, but I wish the builder had used a photo of their own model for the billboard rather than an image of another toy — the differences between the two are distracting me!

Ferrari 312 vs. Brabham BT24

My favourite of the two cars is the Brabham, mostly because of the classic British Racing Green colour scheme. But check out this view of the rear and the engine — nice work with the touches of chrome, and that robotic fist piece underneath…
