1986, 1990-1991, 1993-1999

In 1986, LEGO introduced a theme named Model Team. This theme included vehicle models in a larger scale and with more details, such as steering functionality. The theme focused on visual realism of the models. The logo of Model Team has changed three times in 1990, 1992 and 1999. The set numbers start with a 55XX prefix for a regular set. One promotional set, 2556, was released in 1997 featuring Shell and Ferrari. Model Team was discontinued after 1999. In 2004, the Model Team set 5541 was re-released as set 10151 in the Legends theme.

An item to note: most vehicles in Model Team carry a license started by "MC" or "MT" and then with its set number. Except for the set released in 1986, which has a license plate starting with "MC", the vehicle sets released after 1986 carried a license starting with "MT", which stands for "Model Team".

It is believed that the exclusive sculpture sets introduced since 2000 and the vehicle models in the Creator theme (previously known as Designer Set) introduced since 2003 have replaced Model Team.
