This classic Porsche paddock looks good in Lego

Wed, 26 Mar 2014

Malte Dorowski loves building Porsches out of Lego, as demonstrated by his Flickr photostream. Here, he re-created the entire Porsche Martini paddock in Lego. The results are stunning. There's a Volkswagen parts van, a 935/76 Turbo and a 935/78 Moby Dick, a 936/77, a hulking Ford C-Type race transporter -- complete with PORSCHE text, rendered in bricks.

He also has the occasional Group 5 Toyota Celica rally car, a Sauber C9, and a C6R Corvette GT2 complete with rollcage and front suspension. But it's the Porsches to which we're most attracted; it's not easy to capture the compound-curved fender of a 911 in Lego, and maybe we're just suckers for Martini livery.

We obviously love Lego around here, and we love it when cars and Lego combine to form an unholy fusion of dorkdom. Dorowski is a man who loves his Porsches -- he even did a Porsche tractor -- and delivers a technical accuracy in plastic form that still has us astonished.

We'd have him running Cuusoo if we could. Then we'd ask him for some instructions.
