Lego 3177 Small Car

My son acquired the Lego 3177 Small Car today from our local superstore and in less than 20 minutes put it together with no trouble at all.

He liked it as it complements the small cars in the Lego 7939 Train Set. The minifig comes with a small briefcase which is a fun little detail but also far too easy to loose!

Here are some photos of the completed model.


Below is a recently uploaded video of a MakerBot made out of Lego which can assemble Lego models from a software description.

A full description of the model can be found at
The current design works with 1x2, 2x2, 3x2, 4x2, and 8x2 stud Lego elements. Sweet.
