Ice-cream van

Post by AnitaE on Fri 22 Apr 2011, 2:46 pm

I decided to try building an ice-cream van. The outcome of my efforts proves I am not really a vehicle builder, but hopefully it is recognisable as what it is intended to be.

I originally tried to build it based on a mr whippy van, but I didn't have enough pink plates, so in the end it turned into a generic ice-cream van (which started looking a bit like a prisoner transport).

Anyway, here is my ice-cream van:







Do you think it would benefit from some non-lego stickers of ice-creams etc to look more authentic?

Nice one! Looks like an ice cream truck to me. Glad you didn't make a Mr Whippy van in the end - that ice cream is far too pricey!
Comes accross very clearly as an ice cream truck - now my question is, does the side panel fold down?

Stickers would be a good addition I think, but only a few, no need for detailed price info etc.

Also, how would it look if you moved the ice cream on the roof one stud forward?

Thanks for the feedback everyone

Captain Zuloo, the side panel does fold down. (see here)

When you say move the roof forward, do you mean use a 45 slope and not a 33 slope on top of the window? I did wonder about that and might give it a try today. (I was wondering about the continually changing gradients at the front).

Absolutely brilliant !

I agree that the ice cream on the roof would be better positioned one stud closer to the front.

Where did you get the ice cream that the girl is holding?

The van will look great on your table at the Brisbane model train show next weekend.

I got the ice-cream from bicklink. They were from belville and scala sets.

I was a bit Lego food obsessed for a little while (back in the days when a turkey cost over $20. legolaugh

And wow, how quickly did the train show sneak up.

No, just the big ice cream on the roof. The roof itself looks fine, I'm just wondering how the big ice cream attached to it might look were it positioned one stud forward. legowink

I think that's really cute :D
I used to have paradisa when i was a kid (Well i lie my sister did, i always got the castle sets because i was a tom boy). But secretly i coveted paradisa, I used to like gambling on the spinning wheel at the fun fair! Probably not what lego had in mind.
