Lipko’s Red Coupé Supercar

Before going on with the MOC I am looking most forward to, I decided to build something else. I have acquired quite a list of MOCs and one of the must-build MOCs on that list is Lipko’s Red Coupé Supercar. I was looking forward to build it for quite a while now and now the moment is here.

I’ll be a bit straightforward on this one. On the last Saturday evening, I had all my bags of “sorted” Technic parts assembled around me. In front of me, I had my laptop with the manual for this car made by Therion and the parts list from ReBrickable (which isn’t complete). I spent like 3 hours sorting out and counting parts into little containers as an interim storage.

The amount of liftarms is really huge and I can’t wait to go on building. But on Sunday I only had time to build for approximately 2 and a half hours. I came as far as page 50 (of 181) of Therion’s instructions. I am curious if Therion will re-make the instructions again. They are a good help and make it relatively easy to build this model in comparison to working with the .lxf file that Lipko provided, but they are far from being optimal. I struggled with putting together some of the sub-assemblies, but I guess, that once the chassis is finished, it’s gonna be easy. This is how far I got until now:

Basically, I have completed the 4-speed gearbox and the rear axle. Until now, the build was a lot of fun and the instructions make it a little challenging. Also, I found something that could be improved and I will exchange the part before going on with the instruction. Until now, I found the constructions rather inconvenient from what I have built before, but surprisingly sturdy as well.
