Fiat 500 F - THANK YOU!

Back in 2016 when Felix and I submitted this project reaching 10k was merely a dream but now thanks to you it has come true.

 

Our FIAT 500 will have completed its journey successfully and stuck the landing of the "10k jump". Admittedly, it's not been an easy journey and over the past two years we had our doubts if we could make it in time. All the more we want to thank each and every one of you who supported, commented and shared so we could get there in the end. We really hope you like the improvements we've made to the initial design over the course of time in the update section. We've always tried our best to keep the updates as exciting and interesting as possible.

 

What comes next?

As most of you undoubtedly already know our project will now move on into what's called the LEGO Ideas review. Three times a year LEGO evaluates all the projects that reached 10k independently and checks whether they've got what it takes to become an official set. This review process usually takes a few months. We don't want to get our hopes up but the fact that LEGO approved the Caterham Seven at least shows there would be a market for relatively large scale car models.

 

Shortly after we reach 10k the comment thread as well as the update section will be locked. You're most welcome to follow Gabriele and me on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube though to avoid missing out on further news.

 

Before this happens though we want to thank a few people/groups personally.

Special thanks to:

 

SavetheBrick and MichielsMum aka Heleen for their continued interest and kind comments,

Nicolas Jarraud aka Scrubs who created the fantastic online LEGO CAD-software Mecabricks without which this collaboration would not have been possible,

KovJonas who created a wonderful spreadsheet to keep track of the support history of our project and also helped us with promoting,

Michael Klein aka Renderbicks who inspired our 3D presentations and gave us very useful tips,

The entire Fiat 500 Club Italia for their support and enthusiasm.

And finally all the LEGO fan clubs and websites who featured our project and made this possible.

Thank you for sharing this adventure with us and we hope it's been just as fun of a ride for you as it has been for us.

 

-The creators Gabriele and Felix
