TBs TechTOC 10 - What a fleet!

What a Formula 1 car fleet!...

This is something I've been to post about, almost since TBs start... Thus, don't expect it to be fresh breaking news!
However it lays deep into Brickshelf folders and it is worth to give a look, I believe.

This man (mamemia) committed the heresy of painting not one, nor two LEGO parts... but really a large bunch of them [1, 2, 3, 4,...]. Some will certainly get shocked or mad about this...
To give them a final touch, he even produced just "few" nice looking custom stickers.

All the seven different cars, seem to be slight variants on the 8461 (Williams F1 Team Racer), released by LEGO in 2002. Exception for the decoration which is obviously an huge customization work and quite different from the original.
I can't be sure, but think these have been built about the same time (2002-2003) and they are replicas from some of the most distinct contemporary F1 cars (Jaguar, Renault, Jordan, Bar, Ferrari, Sauber and Toyota).

You may find a lot more photos from these magnificent cars, at mamemia's Brickshelf folder.

It might be a controversial opinion, but must say the result is visually really stunning, at least.

I wish i could buy a set of those wheels for less than $100.00. I love these F1 cars and hope TLG releases another set
