Aston Martin DB5, 007 - Lego (COMPLETE)


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

This isn't so much a build log, but a step by step of this new and amazing Lego kit. It has secret phone in the driver's door, detailed engine, machine guns at front that swivel via the gear stick, switchable licence plates, rising bulletproof panel at rear, opening boot, and the roof pulls back and passenger seat ejects by pulling a section of the rear bumper.

 

A gorgeous project!

Those are some really great photos Jim - made me feel like I build the thing myself. 

 

The kit itself is pretty interesting. I especially like all the functions - there's nothing worse than a Lego kit that does absolutely nothing and this one looks jam-packed with fun features.

 

I am however quite disappointed with the final look. The front and rear end somehow lost all of its slickness and sexiness. - They managed to make it look bulky and heavy. I know that this is made out of Lego but considering the scale I think they could have done a better job. - I just can't shake off the feeling that the design should have stayed in the oven for a bit longer. Also the inconsistencies in coloring are killing me - why did they make the bumpers and some minor details matte chrome but not the wheels, exhausts and door handles?

James, thanks for helping me spread the word about what can be done modeling in Lego!  I'll be curious to see if more members give it a shot and post their creations here in Shore Leave.  I think many would be interested to learn and appreciate a totally different nature of limitations and challenges.  When I finish telling the lighthouse and RV stories, I may see if I have adequate photos to tell my Chichén Itzá build story.

 

Cheers,

John

Each time I stop thinking about digging out my pieces there's an update on something Lego-related and nostalgia kicks back in.

 

I give up - I'll try and put something together this evening or it will never go away. Considering how limited my parts are it'll probably be something with wheels. Don't expect fireworks.
