A V8 pullback convertible hot-rod with lockable steering made from 42106's parts. It is directly inspired by 42093's B model as they have the same tires. The model can be a regular pullback and drive straight or manually steered and driven :)
- Moving V8 engine - Pullback motor connected to the V8 - Steering via /detachable/ HoG spare tire - Steering wheel turning with the wheels - Steering lock via single pin - Detachable roof, exhausts and supercharger - Detailed interior - seat, gear shifter, dashboard indicators - Option to convert it to manual driving using a single 8L DBG axle with stop /also listed in the parts list/
Making the V8 was challenging as this set lacks some of the mounting pieces used in the 42093 and 42098. You'll see it in the build process - it's quite quirky :) The mechanics of the model looks like this:
Front tires are stacked one over the other to give a more rugged look. If you're not comfortable with this you can just use the white rims that come with the set.
THE MODEL USES SPARES.
