    Build this LEGO Technic Lancia Stratos out of your Porsche GT3 RS

    |

    The LEGO Technic Porsche GT3 RS model is rather interesting. It’s an amazing amount of detail but yet it manages to look kind of ugly when assembled. Those of who wish for a more realistic looking model but still wanting to retain much of cool techy stuff that is there – I have some great…


  • LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS Crash Test

    |
