That does look good,I guess most of us want an official set, I have done the down load instructions and use bricklink to get bits it was very time consuming! maybe from being new to it all, then had to check had all bits.

Yeah. I know what you mean.

I've been wanting to build his 69 Corvette Stingray for a while now.

Every time I start to gather the pieces on Bricklink I just end up getting scared off and giving up.

Some of those rare part prices are insane.

Yeah I only tried with smallish APC car from Aliens, but i had to use like so many different suppliers on there and if had one supply all or 98% of parts it cost so much more to. Website and how it works seems a bit olde world now to. Postage adds up to.

He only took the photo on the 6th of this month so there may no be instructions available for it yet.

There may also never be instructions or a parts list, just did it for fun or his friend.

Just took delivery of Hedwig & The Flintstones house. Cancelling home schooling & replacing with building tomorrow.

Just put the freebie Hot Rod on the classified too, if anyone is interested. Not cheap but going rate

There are often almost identical parts available to rare ones, or alternatives can be used. The problem with building popular MOC’s is that rare parts become even rarer because so many people try and buy them.

A couple of free hours this afternoon produced this, no numbered bags so I checked the inventory and low and behold a mistake by Lego wherein I had a grey 5 hole bar instead of a black one.
It doesn't bother me and it would have to be pointed out to even see the colour error.
A quite complex build with a fully working gearbox that has neutral along with 1st and 2nd.
The chain looked far to loose so I removed a single piece which has made it a very tight fit but it looks much better like this.
The stand is disappointing, a two stud piece is there to support the weight but it also holds the rear end at an angle to do so. Without it the weight of the bike is too much and it falls over, it's just badly designed is all.
It's good overall but something feels a little off when finished.
