Based on set 603.
I know it's poor, I'm not as creative as you guys and I don't have a lot of lego. Treat me like a beginner.

I like it. It can be hard to make do with a small collection or with a rainbow of parts.

Some members **coughcoughNapoleoncoughcough** :9 have upwards of 3,000 USD in Lego. Just steadily build your collection with small purchases you like. Eventually you'll be doing bigger MOCs.

Haha, thanks. But not in a million years. I collect Lego since I was born and my collection can't even compare to anyone else's.
I have less parts than I should since I like to keep my creations. But to have a good collection, I need to move to a country where I can earn money that isn't worthless.

Holy! Your not kidding. 1 USD = 2.93 Zlotych so, almost 30 Zloytch for a 10 USD set.

Just noticed, did you paint that front piece?

Thanks for understanding. Ever since the Collectible Minifigs began, I've managed to amass about 30. I end up heartbroken when I hear that everyone in the west can afford to buy my entire collection in a day.
Not at all, it's this part: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=50946pb01

Never seen that piece before...

Just noticed how you made the headlights, that's really original!

30 minifigs, man if I bought that collection, my amount of cash left would be like negative 40 dollars. Basically, I'd be wallet-broke and in debt.

Really? I see those Tiny Turbos sets everywhere, probably since they're some of the only ones seen in shops here.
Nah, it was that way in the aforementioned 603 set.
Oh well, it's my stupid perception that everyone in Western Europe and America is rich.

Hoping to see more of your classic town inspired MOCs, they're pretty cool.

P.S: Well, it's kinda hard for an unemployed 14 year old to make money....

Very Nice!!
Glad you have a few pieces and a good eye in creating.
I like to keep my creations too, which is why I have to wait between my builds ... I have to work at buying pieces also. :o)

I'm really impressed with the amount of detail you have considering your limited selection! Keep posting more.
