The Lego Creator Expert Ford Mustang 10265 Set has had a little bit of re-tuning in the LEGO designer’s garage and is now ready to hit the roads. This new model for March 2019 doesn’t divert from the original design too much. But, there are some great new elements for a challenging, worthwhile building experience. Teens and car fanatics will love the different features and the final look of this iconic car.
The designers have worked hard to create the right design with all the best elements
This new Ford Mustang has a brilliant shape and design that immediately takes owners back to the 1960s. The color scheme of the dark blue bricks with the racing stripe is authentic and attractive. The wheels are just right for the model with the tires and 5-spoke rims. In fact, those rims are a new element for this updated version of the car. There are also new bricks and decorative elements. The finished model measure 34cm long and 10cm high – not too large and not too small. It will look great in any display cabinet, but can also be used for play.
As with most of these detailed 16+ LEGO Expert sets, there is just as much going on within the car as there is on the exterior. Builders receive a range of extra parts to transform the interior into a more functional vehicle. There is a working steering system, a mid-console gearshift and a radio. There is also a chance to fit and inspect all the mechanics of the car under the hood, including the battery, hoses and that all-important V8 engine.
The experience doesn’t end with the basic build – there is also customization on offer
Customization isn’t something that we see in all LEGO vehicles. Many are many to a clear specification that fits the image of a particular model. Here builders can adjust and play around with elements to change the look. Some of the features are little aesthetic details – such as switching the license plates, adding stickers or swapping spoilers. But, it is also possible to add in a supercharger and to change the lift on the rear axle.
The end result is a product that not only captures the energy and feel of the original car but one that builders can adapt to their personal tastes. Therefore, this Lego Creator Expert Ford Mustang 10265 Set takes model car building to a different level.
