Lars' DeLorean

DeLorean Open Door


It's been a while since we've featured a MOC from Larry Lars so I'm more than thrilled to be reporting on this one. I was linked to his teaser shots before the weekend and now it seems he's completed his own Back To The Future DeLorean Time Machine. He has nailed the look at an almost impossible scale. There are tons of details that make you wish there were more than the four pictures in his photostream. All that's missing is some of the sweet printed tiles of the dashboard and the flux capacitor from the upcoming official LEGO CUUSOO set to make it, in my opinion, one of if not the best DeLorean MOCs out there. If he decides to make a kit, sign me up. Heck, I'd take even just the instructions and source the parts myself to recreate this bad boy. I'd love to do a side by side comparison with 21103 Back to the Future Time Machine when it's finally released in mid-July.

Holy cow! That's awesome sauce. Not sure why the front and back wheels are different? Like the creative whip use. I'd definitely buy this as a Lego set! :cool:

I am totally convinced that if this model car is pushed along at about 2.2 MPH, the scale speed of 88 MPH, it will set the floor on fire, and travel through time.

I'm glad to hear that you liked my Delorean. It was a pretty fast and a very fun build. Maybe you can guess that I'm working on the flying version right now.

In the movies and in real life the DeLorean sports car is equipped with bigger and wider rear wheels. It gives it the slightly forward leaning "speedy" look and I wanted to have some of that for this model. These two types of Lego tyre are different enough and at the same time lets me keep the same measurements for everything else involved.
