Female characters

Some users suggested me to add some female characters to the scene. After some research I created two minifigs based on old pictures and my fantasy. I could only guess the colours and the umbrella is totally made from fantasy. I hope you like them.

The first one is Bertha Benz, Karl's wife and business partner. Not only: she was a real automotive pioneer as she was the first person to drive an automobile over a long distance. In August 1888 she drove the Benz Patent-Motorwagen Number 3 from Mannheim to Pforzheim (about 106 km)     Wikipedia source


In 1899 the Austrian businessman Emil Jellinek gave his beloved 15yo daughter's name to a Daimler MG's race car and lately to several other models. The girl's name was Mercedes. No need to say that Mercedes became very soon a worldwide famous brand. Here is a Lego minifig portrait of Mercedes Jellinek.

Some more versions

The green Velociped is my favourite, but not all the parts are available on Lego stores. That is why I created new versions of both Motorkutske and Velociped using 100% available bricks. Here you are:

I would love to receive comments about which version looks better.

Thanks.

New version of Benz Velociped

I made a slighty smaller version of Benz vehicle in order to make it more suitable to a Minifig sized scale.
