  1. Hi guys, I currently have a small city/train layout. It is currently getting to small for my trains and modulars. (if you are interested you can find it here: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=554588). This made me think over a redesign of the layout where I have more space for the trains and the modulars, and where I have more "track-space" to move the trains on the layout (with the current design I can move 4 trains independently on the layout). I have now to describe what you can see in the image above: First you see the whole visible track of the layout. You can also see that it consist of three levels: gray baseplates = level 0 green baseplates = level 1 (20cm above level 0) tan baseplates = level 2 (only streets and houses, 20cm above level 1) All blue baseplates are placeholders for modular houses. You can also see, that this layout only works with modified points. The tracks on the red baseplates are the ramp where the train can go from level 0 to level 1. In the picture above you can also find the dimensions of the layout. In the pictures below, you can find the track layout of each single level (for reference the track ramp is shown in all thee pictures): Level 0: Level 1: Level 2: Now my Questions are: What do you think in general of my layout? What would you change/ what didn't you like? Do you think the given ramp is doable with PF-Trains (height difference = 20cm) BR, Guenther
  2. Hi, All! Here are some alternate models I've made with pieces of lego city 60121 Vulcano explorer set. At first I thought that it's going to be really hard to make any alternate from this city set but after some playing with bricks I came up with several designs. 1. Off road racer 2. TT truck 3. SUV Thanks for watching!
  3. In the interest of trying to compile one location, (and also a place for people to ask for new ideas) I figured this post could serve as the one stop shop for people looking to purchase instructions for non-official Lego Modular instructions. [For the record, this isn't a For Sale topic, but a place for people to most places for instructions to be purchased.] So with that being said, what are the places for people to purchase Modular Instructions? ______________________________________ www.brickcitydepot.com www.brickbuilderspro.com
  4. I haven't posted topics on Eurobricks for a long time (Sorry!) I have make a new MOC, T6W-MC: The 6 Wheeled Muscle Car... T6W-MC by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr T6W-MC by Kamal Muftie Yafi, on Flickr It's my first Speed Champions MOC, hope you like it! More Information in My Website... Note: The wheels can't actually turn in Real Life. It's just to make it more realistic.
  5. https://mobile.twitter.com/LEGO_Group/status/801078089417687040?p=v LEGO City Undercover is re-releasing on Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch. Also, notice Chase's new uniform in the picture. Logo's slightly different too. Guess there's some slight differences. Great for people who don't own a Wii U! Guess this explains Chase's appearance in LEGO Dimensions and a 2017 City set.
  6. I finally took the plunge and bought my first PF train set. And I'm not ashamed to say I'm now addicted to making train things in LDD and Stud.io. Here's my first completed train car. A passenger car to match the colors of the Cargo Train set engine. As always (well most of the time), the build guide is available at charlesp.org
  7. Hi, I would like to show you my wip moc of a ferris wheel for my winter village. I got inspiration from this one, expecially for the gondolas, but i spiced it up a little bit (6 instead of 4, top cover, etc...). Of course i still have to develop everything around it, this is just the wheel for now (and still need to add some more decorations). As I'm new to this forum and I'm back on track after a long dark age I would like to know your impressions and suggestions to get it better before ordering the pieces i miss.For example i have some difficulties to attach more firmly the white plates to the black technic rotor plate. Any ideas? The gondolas are connected via turntables, i guess that there is a little bit too friction on that but it's the easiest way i found. FRONT VIEW REAR VIEW Comments and suggestions are welcome
  8. Hello Eurobricks community. I've been reading Eurobricks for quite few years and have been collecting LEGO for a while. (mostly starwars) Anyhow, I have a question to the community: I need some advices on how to plan and start making a... lets start from small urban town. So the current resources I have now are: I have a lot of townsfolk, 2 houses, and some handful of bulk parts for sure. Few city vehicles if I remember it properly too. I have some green plates and plenty of old grey giant plates.
  9. My latest modular is a townhouse with a shop of the first floor. There is no interior for this one yet. I have a few modular buildings in the works and I don't know when I'll get back to this one to fill out the interior. I'm thinking of making it an Optometrist office, but I'd be interested in hearing if you have a better idea! :) Close ups of the shop and balcony: And here it is next to my candy stop for comparison: Thanks for looking! I'll post again when I have an interior.... one of these days.
  10. This model was originally inspired by two sets: 7498 (Police Station from 2011), and two police cars from set 71016 (Kwik-E-Mart from 2015). I modified the station to have modular floors so you can access the inside easier. (these sections are all grouped separately in LDD as well) I also combined parts of set 7744 (2007's Police Headquarters set) into this model to make it like even better. However, their are three of this part in black missing from the model for the slanted windows. The bottom floor features a waiting room with a large TV, receptionist's desk and the garages for the two patrol cars under the jail cells. The second floor is the booking office and what will be desks / evidence containers. The third floor features a water cooler and coffee machine, along with detective offices. It will eventually feature a interrogation room. The jail cells open up both at the same time via a sliding panel. Their are also two escape routes via the toilets as seen above. The car is from set 71016, and all but for two differences is stock from the set. The roof has and light-bar been modified to allow for the cars to fit in the garage, and a licence plate added to the front of the each vehicle. The car features room for two officers side-by-side and one detained criminal behind the security barrier. The roof is removable, plus the doors and trunk open. The reason for building these models as they are is my town needs a police station, but I don't like the 4 wide cars they have in the CITY theme. I found an file of a police station sitting on my hard drive from 2013, just waiting for a car to be added to it. Then I remembered the Simpson's police car that was released a couple years back and the rest kinda fell into place.You can download the LDD file for the station and two patrol cars at this link here. As usual, comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!
  11. Check it out on Rebrickable: La Plaza Deliciosa (instructions available) Meat, cheese, wine, produce, bread and pastries; what more could a minifigure need in their diet? All can be found at La Plaza Deliciosa! This Modular MOC building features 5 stores, all food related; -Butcher’s -Cheese Shop -Wine Shop -Produce Shop -Bakery
  12. Vote this bad boy in: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/165581 Please! My fifth attempt on building the best modular building I could. This time, a corner building, with a huge diagonal façade, and two very easily differentiated buildings: one royal blue and aqua with 1x1 tiles sticked on the wall and the other white, royal blue and teal. You can probably see this, but this was done in the purpose of it being hyper-ultra-mega colorful. Crafted with 2994 bricks, and includes 5 minifigures. I'm pretty sure it would stand about 30-32cm tall (12-12'5 inches). Some more images: Close up of white/teal façade. Notice the nice tree, and sculpture design on top of the building. The other façade. Beautiful gradient upwards! My whole collection. Kinda shocking how earthy the ones on the right look, and how happy the ones on the left look! Hope to see you sometime soon on my project's comment section and supporter list!
  13. This time I'm presenting my latest LDD work. A Zekiville Volunteer fire station. The building itself contains 20.000 bricks. It meets the latest standards in safety and functionality. The main part of the building houses garages, wardrobes and sanitary facilities for firefighters. The Gray wind accomidates all the administative facilities and the underground levels cover recreational and storage facilities. The training tower is designed to allow vertical rescue training, and structual fire simulations. The top 2 floors on gray wind and a top floor on orange wing (main building) provides 12 apartments for firefighter and their families in order to provide as fast responce as possible. The building also house other volunter emergency services such as: - K9 Sar unit - Dive rescue unit - Cave rescue unit and mountain rescue unit. The garages for their equipmet are locates at the back of the building. The look on the building from the front. Back view. Part of rescue apparatus. Ladder and Tech rescue truck with extended ladder/arm. K9 SAR team. Have a nice day.
  14. I'm glad you all like the design! New Post with completed model: A new modular building MOC which I have nearly finished, including interiors. Just need to add a few things, mainly to the rather sparse sidewalk. Will make instructions for the design in the near future. It is a shopping center with 5 shops: butcher's, cheese shop, wine shop, produce shop and bakery. Let me know what you think.
  15. Hello, World! As a veteran computer programmer, I tend to start off my (often boring) posts with "Hello, World", despite being a retired webmaster and blogger. Which Forum do I post my Hybrid Classic - City Police posts? My primary LEGO theme is Classic. My secondary LEGO theme is City with the sub-theme, Police. I could not find the "Classic" forum; maybe because I am still a new user in Eurobricks and have not written the required 10 (or so) posts. Presently, my LEGO photos are posted in my LEGO DeviantArt gallery; I haven't yet discovered how to "hotlink" the photos into Eurobricks since photo hosting isn't allowed. My DeviantArt site is "primary" into receiving 99% of my digital art posts (the remaining 1% are my profile photos and backgrounds). My plan is to soon include my radio scanner ("Police Radio") hobby with my newly founded LEGO hobby. Since I am still learning LEGO Classic, itself, I plan to include my three City Police minifigs. (My real-life radio equipment were made in Japan!) My "CyberSecurity" interests may be part of my LEGO Classic - City Police hybrid posts! Though it is only an idea, it is an idea I am thinking of doing. Thanks for Reading! As usual, I am and was never known to write numerous posts within a short timeline. I tend to write a couple or a few posts, in which the content of each post, varies between mid-range to huge. Most of my posts take some time to write because of the arthritis that is inside my hands; I have to frequently take breaks when writing every post. Thanks for Reading and Have a Nice Day!
  16. Having only been back into building for a year and a half I was wondering what are some good City themes Lego has had which are useful for building larger natural dioramas? Not for the large vehicles but for the minifigs, animals, small vehicles, vegitation, etc. Arctic and Deep Sea have been great starting points. I have starting building a polar landscape using some Arctic set pieces and also a sea bottom using Deep Sea pieces. The 2 smallest Jungle sets look to be a good starting point for a tropical type set up. Any pics of larger layouts would be great to see for inspiration also. Thanks.
  17. Okay Guys here it is,my newest MOC. As some of you may remember,i designed it a while back on Lego Digital Designer with the upcoming Lego City Pizza Van in Mind. I liked the Ideas and Colors,but the Overall Design of this Food Truck wasn`t to my liking.So i changed it into an american styled classic Stepvan with brightly Colors,on Board Kitchen and Decals. As you can see,i also used some very old Pieces in this MOC,for example that white printed 2x2 Tile or the rear Doors.I kinda liked these oddball Details so i used them. This Food Truck pretty much has the same Features as the regular Set and doesn`t feature any fancy Buildingtechniques. Maybe this is a Start for a whole Series of Stepvans,i sure have one or another Idea in my Mind.... Hope you like my newest MOC,Comments are welcome 20170225_211126 20170225_211150 20170225_211210 20170225_211223 20170225_211238 20170225_211320 20170225_211336 20170225_211343 20170225_211400 20170225_211438
  18. Hello Eurobricks world, Having followed the site for a long time, I figured it was time to put up some of my own work to get some feedback (good or bad). First thing I want to share is a project I've been working on here and there for a couple years. I present Delbaere Stadium. This is being designed as an outdoor stadium (nothing like this here in Canada) Current Diemensions Length: 52.5" 133.5cm Width: 58" 147cm Height(Top of the scoreboard): 13" 33cm The Stadium has over 800 seats, a zamboni, dressing rooms, private suites, broadcast booth Under construction: Finishing touches on structure, 2 flood lights, concession stands, ticket booth, other side of private suites. I'll update it as construction continues. Stadium Scoreboard View facing east: View facing West:
  19. V-LF-15B Updated May 31, 2012! Jump to the latest version! Support on Cuusoo LEGO Ideas! Original post below: Yes, it's another ambulance to add to the numerous ambulance MOCs on this forum. I chose to do this because ambulances are one of those vehicles that every city ought to have, but the official Lego versions don't look like the typical American ambulance. I've also seen some great ambulance MOCs here, but they weren't quite what I had in mind in terms of scale and proportions so hopefully mine will bring something new to the table. The first thing I started on was the 6-wide cab. I specifically wanted to be able to fit 2 minifigs in there. That wasn't too hard, but I did have to remove the seats in order for the roof of the cab to fit properly, otherwise I would have had to raise the roof by one plate in height. At first I used a 6x5x1 wall panel as the back of the cab to allow space for the seat backs. Once the seats were gone, I decided to use regular bricks. This allowed there to be an opening to the patient section in the back like on a real ambulance. The outside of a real ambulance has a lot of storage areas that can open up. For my model, I decided to focus more on the inside detail, which meant that outside storage had to be sacrificed since there isn't enough space. I do have a container on the driver side, but that's it. I added some 1x1 light bley tiles to simulate the door handles of some of the storage compartments. The roofs of the cab and patient section can be removed for easy access. This picture also shows the brick-built doors in their open position. This was the first time building my own brick-built doors and quickly found that simply using hinges wouldn't work due to the thickness of the bricks. At one point, I experimented with a snot door that had cheese wedges on the side to allow it to open and close. It didn't look good, so I scrapped the use of hinged plates/bricks altogether. A shot of part of the interior. There is a seat for an EMT to help with the patient and lots of storage for medical supplies. The other side (not shown) has an area where another minifig can sit, though the stretcher would get in the way of the fig's feet. There's also an oxygen tank and fire extinguisher that you can't see in this photo. The ice skater has had a bad fall! Her fans are quite worried. Here you see a bit of how the doors are made. There is a bar on the door attached to two robot arms. The other end of the arms are attached to a bar on the interior of the patient section. This allows the brick-built doors to be pulled straight out and then swiveled to the side. It's hard to see, but I also used 1x1 corner panels to allow a bit more clearance for the robot arms. I feel like I've seen this door technique before, but I'm not sure where I've seen it. The side door opens just like the rear doors. I'll probably use a similar design if I decide to make a bus. Comparison with official Lego vehicles. The bus from City Corner is looking a bit small now. Well, I guess that's it for this MOC! Thanks for looking! My next MOC might be an 8-wide bus, or maybe a regular car of some sort. This MOC can also be viewed at: Flickr MOC Pages LDD file: Spacysmoke's American Ambulance (ver.B)

  21. The model seen here is originally based upon the Brick City Depot "Winter Village Train Station". I have modified it enough from the original model to upload the LDD file for my version, which is available below. The following is a fictional backstory on Barretts station. (Their is a real Barretts station, but it looks nothing like this an is not as old as my model is supposed to be. That station's history is nothing like this one!) This station was built in 1912 in Barretts, Missouri for use by Brick Railway Systems. It stands on the old Pacific Railway of Missouri right-of-way, which first ran through the area in the mid-1850's. The station is a wooden structure with a stone fireplace, indoor waiting area, and a freight storage room that was added to the station in 1928. The upper floor is for the telegraph operator, which as of 1997 the telegraph has been replaced with a computer for the dispatcher to locate any train in his sector at any time using Global Positioning Satellites. (also known as GPS) Here is the street side. EDIT 2/24/17: added new ADA -compliant parts to the section of the model... see below for details: The upper floor has the computer for the dispatcher. In true Lego City style, their are no stairs to the top floor. This is the lower floor, with a waiting room, and ticket seller. The freight storage room off to the right was added later, and connects the station via a hole cut into the wall. Two sliding doors allow for cargo to be loaded onto the platform side, or out the street side for loading onto a truck. Here is the modular side of things: One left and one right platform, the station proper, the control room and it's roof are all connected by either pins or a very few studs. The original model I based this off off is seen here, while my version's LDD file can be found at this link. This model should be built to replace my 7997-style train station later this year. As usual, comments questions, and complaints are always welcome! EDITED 2/20/17: Updated the screenshots into real-life pictures.
  22. Ok guys, this is my first MOC (posted on the forum) so here goes nothing. Police Kiosk MOC Any tips and/or criticism is welcome!
  23. An entry for the LEGO Life logo contest on Rebrick. Under each ‘stud’ on the brick, there is an 8×8 minifig scale vignette, in the same theme as the microscale build above it. I tried to represent three of the core themes of LEGO: City, Space, and Castle. This was a very enjoyable build, as I got to dabble in several themes, but it still all came together fairly quickly and easily. Lots more pictures on Brickbuilt Thanks for looking, C&C welcome
