TBs TechTOC 09 - Now a Murcielago

Some of you might already know that Crowkillers (Paul Boratko) was producing a new car.
With his well known style and detail, Paul made another Lamborghini. This time a yellow Murcielago.

Once more a fine piece of art and technique, I'd say.

Take a look at some photos and do not loose the whole series at Paul's website.

For those who appreciate certain details and are not too purists, you may gonna get in love with the new Black Chrome wheels that Paul got plated from CV Vacuum Platers.
I'm sure I'll want some for me!...

Another curiosity was that Paul had to paint two of the hood panels not yet released in yellow till the present date. Fortunately these are to be officially released when the new Technic sets will start to appear next moth and he can replace them. Nevertheless hadn't he told me about, and I wouldn't have noticed from the photos.

So what's next Paul

I posted this over at eurobricks, so I might as well give my thoughts here as well. :)

While I consider myself a Lego "Purist" I actually have no problem with the whole chroming process if it is done right and professionally. Not only are those chrome/gunmetal colored wheels awesome looking, but I fully approve of using them on models since we are basically stuck with 2 options, Black or the MdStone. The gold on the other car is a little too gaudy though, but still nice. It looks like he did a very solid job on this new car. The scissor doors look really good. I haven't seen too many models that had "Full" scissor doors that looked noteworthy, but these seem to be an exception. From looking at the photos on brickshelf at first glance the chassis looks quite similar to his Gallardo model, but upon further inspection they are much different. I see added suspension, a working steering wheel as well as a HOG one. The do both share the same design with the center differential, but that does seem to be a good design. No transmission this time either, but I am not sure if you could really fit a transmission into these somewhat small scale technic cars. I know people do and have done it in the past with modifying the 599 GTB and Enzo models.

Never the less, this is a very very impressive model that I would love to have on my shelf or desk.

This is what should now be being produced by TLG. Paul is rightly producing innovative models that the market wants. Lego cant keep up on the cars front. well done , like the wheels.
