Product Idea

Toyota AE86 Sprinter Trueno

The Iconic Toyota AE86 Sprinter Trueno is a legend among car fanatics and is the dream car of any Japanese car enthusiast. This particular one that I have built is based on the AE86 that appears in the popular manga and anime series Initial D. 

I built this car because there is a lack of Japanese cars in Lego. This car in any form would be a perfect addition because it along with the Mazda RX-7 FD3S are both Japanese legends. This build has many features included as well, such as working pop ups, opening doors and an opening hood. I am aware that some things on this aren't perfect, such as the interior being grey on this model yet it is a maroon-brown in the series, or the engine isn't amazingly detailed. One thing that I particularly despise is the fact that I did not have enough black wheel arches to do the back wheels like I did the front wheels with the arches. I did build this on my computer exactly (and I mean exactly piece by piece!) the way I did physically, and when I build physically I have a limited selection of parts.

I do plan on doing an RX-7 FD3S digitally as I do not have the parts to make a physical one.

I hope viewers enjoy this build, as it took 3 days of trial and error to complete. I would also love to hear your thoughts in the comments section. Make sure to check out my other submissions!

P.S. I rendered the images with Stud.io for those out there that do not know how to. This software is free and so is the rendering feature that comes with it.
