Let me know what you think?
My only suggestions would be to add a red 'pacifier' for Maggie, and you could probably use two headlight bricks and cheese slopes to achieve the Starfish shape hair for Lisa.
Been working all day on designing one of my most favourite things in the entire world with another of my most favourite things in the entire world: Here is my design for a 1:17-ish scale Lego model of a Bugatti Veyron!
No grille is present, I found it too difficult to replicate in Lego effectively at this scale, so it'll have to be a custom decal instead.
Next will be to dig out the 802 bricks needed to build it to the exact design and to make some custom acetate stickers to represent the iconic front grille and the rear number plate to apply when I do build it. Pics of the real life Lego model should follow in a few days time.
Surely one of the harder cars to replicate in Lego due to the complex shallow curvature of the real thing?

Building the set everyone is talking about: priceless
On top of that my daughter played a long time with it (only because it is blue - her favorite color), making it crawl all over different places in the house...
Just got all the lego city trains sets available currently (red passenger,yellow cargo,station,level crossing and 5 boxes of track!). That lot should keep me busy for a while and just moc'd a network rail engineers carriage for the cargo train and will make a few extra freight cars for diggers and the like. .......Next purchase/build will be horizon express (x2 to make the whole train).
Now you just need to change your username to "TheOneBugattiVeyron" :-)
The nice thing about this model is that, as a 14 stud wide car, it displays perfectly with Lego's own 14 stud wide Ferraris and Lambos they've made over the years.
The roof of the model also pops off easily to create the Grand Sport convertible version, as in this picture:
So if I'm ever bored of one version, I can switch to the other :-)
There's also a chrome antenna piece I used for the gearstick - it's a custom chromed Lego piece I ordered from a parts chromer in Poland through Bricklink (Europe has quite a few parts chromers I must say). They're not cheap - I think I paid 1 Euro just for that piece!
All other silver on the model is metallic silver, including the two quite rare wedges (they only appeared in one set, #8647 I believe) I used for the iconic cooling ducts.
I'm hoping to build an old 50s car sometime and i'm going to need a lot of chrome. :-)
Now to take a building break for a couple weeks, then building Aquabase Invasion!
Interestingly, the Brickset set-pic of this implies that it comes with a brick separator; mine didn't. Is that the norm for this set?

Whatever you do, don't give up MOC'ing, first impressions are really good! ;-)
I dropped the middle tree early on when I was building it and had to re-attach pretty much everything. Even now the two trees to the left and middle are rather delicate, shall we say.
Makes trans-medium blue sound like very good value, I'll have to consider stocking up on them. Seems to be plenty about at the moment, so no rush. Might try experimenting with clear and blue plates and see how they look.
I always get inspiration for my own MOC's when I see a really nicely done build too :-)
