5 Wide lego model of 007's Aston Martin DB5 (with working gadgets!)
About this creation
Goodmorning, good afternoon or good evening!
Before I talk about the MOC I'd like to ask 1 question...
What's the most British car in film?
That's right Mr Beans mini cooper, just kidding (*laughs in front of a stern crowd*)of course it's James bonds Aston Martin, an icon by all means
Since I was a kid I've always wanted a toy of the car, finally at the age of 15 I've immortalised it in lego!
The model is 5 Wide and just over 3 bricks tall, of course this scale makes it hard to include the gadgets...
Firstly the guns in the front. they are fully integrated into the build at the front although this and the bullet screen (the thingy that lifts up in the back) makes the car a bit longer than I had desired. They can be pulled out from the front although due to the small scale there is nothing to push on to extend them.
A logical gadget to move onto would be the bullet screen, again this gadget is fully integrated moreover,you may see from one of the pictures that there is a technic cross pin that you push on, this will enviably reveal the bullet screen. In addition when the bullet screen is lifted it allows for an oil slick function by which two 1x1 tiles come from under the car acting as oil coming from the exhaust, this function is a result of some quick thinking and the way s.n.o.t is used (not an original intention) the tiles can be loaded when the roof is detached
Lastly the ejector seat, again there was a point I wasn't going to use it as the design was too small for mini-fig to fit inside although the ejector seat is indeed too iconic to remove so I decided that withheld temporary removal of the roof, I could sit the mini-fig in there on a jumper plate and launch him by using a second jumper. which detaches the figure from the stud enviably launching him/her
That's all the gadgets I could stuff the poor car with I'm afraid and that's all the writing I can probably handle, I strongly recommend looking as my other mocs and of course leaving a comment and even a like. Thanks for reading!
P.s. I'd like to mention I found a pot of inspiration on the moc pages themselves and that this is my first car moc
