These Volkswagens will leave you with the BUG to GOLF

When it comes to building classic cars out of LEGO bricks, Volkswagens have remained a popular subject. While there are plenty of great LEGO Beetles and Transporters out there, it’s nice to see something from the 1980s like Brixe63’s VW Golf Cabriolet. One of the challenges in building the Golf is capturing the subtle angles of the body. Brixe63 has managed to pull it off, right down to the tilt of the windshield. The 1×1 tiles placed within clips work well as mirrors, and the silver barbs make for nice door handles.

The builder also made a slick-looking version of the classic VW Beetle. Here, Brixe63 proves as adept at replicating the Beetle’s curves as she is with the subtle angles of the Golf.

She even built a fleet of Beetles, including a convertible and police car. With the top down and a lovely tan and green color scheme, the convertible is my favorite of the three.

    Just a little hint: In this case, it should say “She”. You couldn’t know but she is one of the rare female builders. :))

    Normally I simply hate the look of brick-built fenders compared to the clean curves of the range of excellent dedicated fender pieces that have been produced in the last ~15 years or so, but I’m actually thinking of stealing the fender design off of those Beetles for a project I’ve wanted to do for several years.
