Description

The rear bench seat is a flat plate without studs, so the passengers have to hold on for their life – just like reality sometimes! The LEGO Creator Yellow Taxi 40468 has a very classic appearance that looks a great deal like taxis you’ve seen in cities. There are some SNOT (Studs Not On Top) techniques used for the front and rear bumper and the many jumper plates are used to shift the upper part of the car half a stud.

There are some nice details in the build like the exhaust pipe, a fire extinguisher and some hanging ornaments which help the model come to life. Read more about the condition New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging is applicable). Some moments there are so many of those tuk tuks riding that it seems like you're in the middle of a street race! To find the right speed for the movement without lateral movement of the plate took a couple of tries, but the result is pretty convincing.But this version is something different, for one it’s not Minifigure scale, it’s also a little more detailed than those featured as part of other sets. Sure, the thought that it might be a tad oversized did cross my mind- but I didn’t let that stop me. I think the reason it looks too big for "minifig scale" has a lot to do with the way minifigs themselves are articulated.

Really fun to make and has song lovely details, like the pink seats and the tassels dangling from the roof. This amount includes seller specified domestic postage charges as well as applicable international postage, dispatch, and other fees. It would still look good in the background of an urban scene, even if the size limits its usefulness. I have little interest in vehicles, and so many sets come with them that I already have an abundance of cars. The model is a straightforward build with no special techniques except for some SNOT builds on the sides.Due to the fixture of the car it stays stationary and sharp in the photo while the wheels and the background are blurred due to the motion.

LEGO fans aged 7 and up who love building and playing with car toys can use the Tuk Tuk to stage stories on their own or add it to other LEGO playsets in their collections for more fun. It won't exactly fit with my current display but I'm thinking of making it a street food vendor to join my food truck collection on display as a street food festival (I'm sure I've seen a tuk tuk or rickshaw used for this purpose here in the UK).

To add some dynamism to the pictures I took at the main train station I used a neutral density filter to take long exposure pictures during the day.
