Well, I'm working on it. Here's a little Civic-sized 2+2 coupe using some of those pieces that are in LDD. Again, it shows what's possible. Please pardon the mixed colors.
I'm of two minds about this curvaceousness. On one hand, I like this result. I'm starting to appreciate what other AFOLs go through. I thought I was already looking at my work in the cold light of day, but yeah, no wow factor.
On the other hand, I like my squarish cars just fine. My only goal was to fit five minifigs in the box. *sigh*
I've realized, LEGO has done the curvaceous thing too with the Speed Racer sets
. But my primary context was the dinky cars
from the 90s. Those things, like my boxy cars, only vaguely resemble their real-life counterparts, and yet they are iconic sources of nostalgia. In fact I think LEGO sets have a certain charm when they look unrealistic
. You know, it's campy.
But of course, if that was enough for me, I wouldn't be designing five-seater cars.
Hmm, that's more complicated than I thought it was.
