Hey i thought i show you this little tram i've been working on now for some time.

It is a 1940's Amsterdam blue tram, this is the line 2 to the red light district hehe.

I'm not completely statisfied yet and i need to make some decals, but here she is:

It rides on 9V and has built in lights, there is no interior.

A great MOC, the bowed out sides are excellent, the only thing I do not like is the front windscreen, but you probably did not have much choice to get that size. To be honest Amsterdam trams have always been a sore subject for me, to many near death expierences!

This looks great!

I like the design of the pantograph and how you use that stretcher holder.

It looks fantastic.

Lego should do a tram for their new train range.

Maybe you should design it.

You built a very nice tram with some nice details like the signal horn on its roof! Are the pantographs of Amsterdam's trams really so long?

I agree on the front windscreen, but it was hard to make this size and keep it smoorh with the curved front. So after a few hours fiddling, i think this is the best solution for now.

Is this one for sale? Good work :thumbup: .

No, but it should be easy to copy i think?

They were in that day and age, nowadays they are a bit lower. :wink:

It looks a bit too short, but the length the model can have is obviously limited by the wheelbase of the train motor you've used, so there's no easy way of doing anything about that. Overall it's very nice. Nice shape, great detail and it's a great subject for a MOC.

Cheers,

Ralph

It's got a great shape Captain! I like the very smooth way it becomes wider in the middle, nice technique. Would you happen to have a real picture on which you based this MOC?

Nice moc.

With 1940 in the title, I almost immediately thought of some german soldiers who stopped the tram to get the driver out to confiscate it. :tongue::grin::wink:
