MOC/MOD: DB Class 111

3 posts in this topic

Lego locomotive designs by James Mathis actually got me back to this hobby again after my dark ages.....

I made this DB class 111 a few years ago, and the last days I changed the colour scheme

to be near those in James original design.

As a small tribute to a great lego train designer.

(I only wish Lego could release new sets similar to the Santa Fé series locomotive and wagons.)

Great work, Selander! It's always a pleasure to see Mathis' designs, and your version is just as lovely. Love the SNOT windows in the midsection! A faithful reproduction - I like your use of slopes as opposed to the 'vehicle roof' pieces used in James' render, it lends a more 'classic' feel to the locomotive.

Keep up the awesome work! :D

'my modest attempt' - you are way too modest 'Selander' your train is an EXCELLENT copy of the original train in the last photo.

Fantastic details to it including the windows - so cool ! :grin:

Great work and I'm a conformist! 'Selander' I'm a conformist! ! :sweet:
