  1. Those of you with good memories may remember this gondola: It first appeared in the thread for @Commander Wolf's T18, and has since appeared in various videos of our locomotives. The gondola is a relatively straightforward design, being a modernized version of the body from 4543 Railroad Tractor Flatbed mated to trucks from the My Own Train series of cars (10013, 10015, 10016, 10017). Besides being pleasantly "official" in style, the design is fairly international; we liked it because it looked decent when paired with locomotives from various parts of the world. I've gone ahead and made instructions for this model: You can get them in PDF form below: International Gondola (PDF) In exchange, would you mind giving me some feedback on the instructions themselves? For example, are they easy to follow? What don't you like about them? etc. Enjoy! P.S. If you prefer images to a pdf, there is a Brickshelf gallery here (pending moderation).
  2. This was really hard. The pieces were quite hard t use, just like the a-model functions ;) But I spent $40 on this set, so I thought I would do something with it. Video at the bottom also contains Instructions. Thanks BrickbyBrick ;)
  3. Last year I stumbled across Marshall Banana's massive, and exquisitely detailed Millennium Falcon MOC. I was quite impressed by the model as it makes Lego's official UCS appear quite pitiful in comparison. I had always felt Lego's UCS was a bit blocky looking (even for Lego) to begin with. After discovering Marshall Banana's custom, my first thought was "I'm going to build this one day." I tossed it into my browser's bookmark folder and didn't think about it for another four months or so. It was then that I decided to open a new project in LDCad and "just mess around with it." A couple of months and 200 hours later, I had a complete digital model. 60 hours after that, I had a complete real model. Finally another 70 hours and I had a complete instruction manual (available here if you're interested). Youtube | Ultimate Lego Millennium Falcon | Timelaps Build My model, while a very near twin of Marshall Banana's masterpiece, also boasts a number of upgrades and improvements throughout. I did succumb to using some "cheater" moves to avoid some techniques I didn't like. Most notably, I didn't like the technique used for the rear engines that involved bending stacked 1x2 plates. It put way too much tension on the bricks that would inevitably lead to cracking. My solution was to use 1/8 brass hobby rod as a 3mm rigid hose alternative and arrange the greeble and engine details into clip-on sections. This lead to another fix for the upper and lower edges of the engines. MB seemed to achieve a slight angle by attaching the pieces unevenly on the studs (assuming I interpreted correctly from the pictures). I really didn't like this, so I added another 1/8 rod at the correct height to allow the pieces to clip in and rest at the correct angle. I've made numerous other modifications including a number of shape adjustments to the shell plates to allow them to fit more evenly. View full Flickr album here.
  4. Hi Guys, been a while! Just thought I would drop a quick line letting anyone know that instructions are available for my GTHO, only 4.5 years after I first started building! hahaha. I have received a lot of enquirers about the instructions and its those people that keep me at it, through to completion. Please check out Rebrickable. :) Now I can finally start on something new! YAY ;P
  5. I'am looking for an instruction creator that works good with LDD. I'am trying it with blueprint, works great with LDD but big moc's are hard to manage. LIC is ok but leaves out parts, not very compatible with LDD. That's the same with Lpub and not very user friendly. Any ideas? Regards RobenAnne Ps my website www.ramt-brick-design.com My website
  6. Searching for instructions for nice MOCs was mostly fruitless, so I turned my attention to official Lego instructions from sets that had something cool in it. 75000 has instructions for a relatively simple droideka, but I don't have all the necessary parts yet. 76051 had Ant-Man as jumbo Giant-Man. Still need to order a few more special parts like the face and hands and connectors. 30611 is the buildable R2-D2, again with special parts.
  7. Hello Train Tech, I have seen some people selling instructions/plans for train MOCs. Out of curiosity, I have some questions for those of you who have bought or sold such things: BUYERS Why do you buy MOC instructions? Which instructions did you buy? Why did you choose those instructions? Do you prefer printed or digital instructions? Why? Could you share some particularly enjoyable or frustrating moments from using the instructions? SELLERS Why did you start selling instructions? How do you choose which models to offer instructions for? Are there models you started working on with the intent of offering instructions for them, rather than as an afterthought? Could you share some particularly enjoyable or frustrating moments from making and selling instructions? Many thanks to anyone who answers -- I'm genuinely curious to know!
  8. From the designer of the most famous AT-AT MOC comes a UCS Tie Defender. The MOC contains 1,676 pieces in total. Despite being a relatively simple design consisting of a base with 3 identical wings, the model itself does not disappoint in terms of both accuracy and detail. There is an instructions bundle available for this MOC which includes a 162 page pdf instruction manual, a parts list, and LDD files. All we ask is an exchange of 20 U.S Dollars ($20) for the entire bundle. For more details about purchasing the bundle, please either PM me or contact me at chrdvorak@hotmail.com via email. For the sticker, I recommend printing it at 122mm width by 61mm height after downloading the original file in the bundle. Here are some images from the manual that show the design and completed model: The Rebrickable listing will be approved soon for an easy to access parts list. Please use this topic to discuss anything about the MOC including the building process, questions, part substitutions, etc.
  9. I watched a bunch of nice HD YouTube videos of a guy in Japan giving tours of the Odaiba Lego Store and LEGOLAND. There was a room with a city layout with a giant Tokyo Tower and a giant Tokyo Skytree and various other landmark buildings like the Fuji TV building, Tokyo Station. Does Lego ever make available instructions and parts lists for these showcase creations? One day I would like to build one of these landmarks in mini figure scale. Even a smaller scale Tokyo Tower would be nice if I could find instructions and parts lists.
  10. Taking a few critical looks at my original A-wing MOC, I decided that a few important improvements were in order to get the shapes and proportions right. So I spent a few hours during the past few weeks to revisit the built, and a lot has changed - quite a lot, especially with the internal frame and the way this model is built. The changes were neccessary to accomodate the more correct outer shape, and to retain the sturdiness of the original MOC. Now Ahsoka's ride was finally finished, and after a few intelligence missions into imperial territory and a daring escape, Ahsoka asked Chopper to check her A-wing for imperial transmitters in an abandoned facility from the Clone Wars before returning to Phoenix Squadron. "What have you done, Chopper?! When I told you to take this thing apart to check for transmitters, I meant it figuratively, not literally!" "Badoop, ba ba. Arrrrrh!" "Ach, okay. Now let's check these sub-assemblies, and then help me put this thing back together, understood?" "Woop, woop!" If anyone would like to create an lxf-file - be my guest! Enjoy and have fun!
  11. So.. I started trying to assemble some of my older lego sets from my giant box of mixed pieces from various sets i got throughout the years. I knew i had the pieces to the Mobile Defense Tank from Lego Exo-Force. So i looked up the instructions booklet on the interwebs and came across something pretty confusing. First look at the front box image. Now look at the finished version in the instruction booklet from LEGO's official site. Notice something? Yes. The Bar between the tracks is missing from the actual build. The bar can be slightly be seen on the rear tracks also, on the box image, but they are not in the actual build. There's more... Things got even more weird, because it turned out that i have been following two different instruction booklets... On this website: http://lego.brickinstructions.com/lego_instructions/set/7706/Mobile_Defense_Tank I found the instructions in the image below. These instructions show, that the bar between the tracks is put into place. But on the instructions you can download as PDF on top of the page, the bar is not included. The bar is not included in the instructions on LEGO's official site either. Looking through both instructions, there are actually a few more things that is different. The build of the canopy varies also. Even the parts list in different. Now... Can anyone explain what is happening? I have been browsing the interwebs for hours, trying to figure out if there is more than one version of this build but i cannot find any evidence. Did they change the build over time or what is happening? I really hope someone can explain this to me.
  12. The Next Generation Scania was presented in August, and I knew that I was going to build it. I was hoping to be the first in the world to make this Next Generations Scania out of lego, and I think I am! Instructions is available at my site: https://sites.google.com/view/thinkcleverandsmart/lego-instructions?pageId=102920453997454125884 Video is on youtube:
  13. Hi, My name is Miguel, and im new to this forum. I like to build sets from loose parts, so, i depend a lot from downloaded instructions. But i have some problems with some pdf, that doesnt clearly notes the contour of the pieces, i.e. 7048 and 7781. I have tried looking at de ldd, but its not the same. any idea how to solve? Thanks in advance and sorry for bad english.
  14. Hi everyone, First things first, let me re-introduce myself. In the past, I used to use the name 'erelender' here, mainly because I wasn't aware that my account name would be my display name while signing up 2.5 years ago. I haven't been very active lately, but if you've ever heard about me, it would be thanks to my TC9 entry, Manitou Telehandler, which won 3rd place. Thanks to @Jim, I'm now able to use the name I'd like Now that re-introduction is out of the way, I can present you my latest models: Mini Construction Vehicles Series One day, while I was sitting on my lego desk, thinking of what to build, I found myself building a small bulldozer. Then I kept building and rebuilding it for the entire weekend. In the end I quite liked the little chap, so I went ahead and built a number of other construction vehicles in the following couple of weeks when I found the time. They are definitely not modeled after any real-life ones. There is also no set scale for the group, but I'd say they are somewhat close to each other mostly. Bulldozer This was the first to come, and my favourite, with angle-adjustable and liftable blade, and liftable ripper. PDF Instructions Rebrickable Link Excavator This one was the second, but I rebuilt it from scratch after the others because I wasn't satisfied. Includes rotating super-structure, arm movement, and liftable front blade. PDF Instructions Rebrickable Link Mining Truck The third one built, but my second favourite. I just love how tough it looks with those tyres, even though they are much sportier than they should be. This one was probably the most challenging one of the lot because I just couldn't get the size of the cabin&bed as I liked, but I'm satisfied with it now. It only features tipping bed, but hey, it's something :) PDF Instructions Rebrickable Link Skid-Steer Loader with Forks The fourth one, and the smallest. Even though it's not as heavy-duty as its siblings, it wins in the area of being cute and still functional. It's also white because at this point I was beginning to run out of small yellow parts, and I just couldn't build it in yellow. PDF Instructions Rebrickable Link Road Grader Number 5. Nothing special about this one other than that the blade height is so nicely fit that it would really grade if I put it on some soft sand :D PDF Instructions Rebrickable Link Road Roller The last one. I was basically out of yellow parts, so this is definitely not the best of the bunch, but it still resembles the real thing and it works. PDF Instructions Rebrickable Link For the Full-Size images, please check my Flickr Photostream. After finishing all 6 models, I thought they were good excuse to learn LDCad and LPub, so I went ahead and created instructions for all of them. I must say I really liked LDCad after switching from MLCad. Some things are much easier to do in LDCad. In the end it was a fun project spanning around a month or so for everything. Thanks for reading, I hope you like them. Cheers
  15. Hi Eurobricks, I am a blind Lego fan. Mhy sighted friend and I have invented a system that enables blind people to build Lego sets independently! You can see it in action at: http://www.youtu.be/hVy5E2DZkKM and you can find our text-based instructions at legofortheblind.com! Thanks! If the video link does not work, you can either paste http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVy5E2DZkKM into your address bar, and remove any spaces, or type Lego For The Blind into Youtube. Thanks! Oops, I thought that the previous link wouldn't work, but it does. No need to paste anything, just click on the link to watch the video.
  16. My former LEGO Ideas project Medieval Micro Modulars seems to have gained some popularity on Pinterest (although it has expired some time ago). I created instructions for it now so anyone can build this although it hasn't become an official set! The Medieval Micro Modulars are a line of detailed microscale buildings in a medieval setting. This can be expanded any time with new buildings or maybe a market place, a town wall or even a castle! Each of the five parts I designed consists of a building based on an 8x8 plate and an equally sized street piece. The streets are populated by trees, wells, market stalls, animals like donkeys (can pull hay carts), sheep or goats and colorfully clothed microfigures (including a guard with a lance)! Each building consists of about 200-250 pieces (including street and accessories). You can download the PDF instructions (for free) on my website http://www.thilo-schoen.de/lego.html. Hope you like it! Also feel free to design your own additional buildings and post them here if you like!
  17. I need a LEGO program that alows me to create building instructions for my models, but not LD, not only because the building instructions aren't good, but also because my build have an RC buggy motor that is not on LDD, and I'm making a car contest in which the winner get building instructions for a LEGO bmw Isetta, and I want to give high quality stuff. The builder who suggest the program that works better for me, will also get BUilding instructions of it for the collaboration. Please help me with this, it would be really appreciated!

  18. In American culture it's a faux pas to ask somebody how much they make, but this is EURObricks, so I figure it's fair game. For those of you selling PDF instructions of Technic models (and only Technic models because I don't build with any other systems) about how much money are you making from it? Is preventing piracy difficult? Have you all considered selling the instructions as a "book" through an online retailer (to help prevent piracy) or is it cheaper to just sell them yourself, keep all the profits and take the hit on piracy when it happens? For the record I've only spent about $35 on online instructions and I haven't even built the models of the instructions I purchased (despite having the parts). I will eventually. I was more interested in the content of the instructions than actually building the model though. I'm also wondering how big the market is. Have any of you sold the instructions AND all the parts to build the model as a "kit"? The reason I ask this is because I might pursue this as a side gig in the winters. I coach triathletes for a living and summers are extremely busy, but winters are extremely slow. I'm also about to have a kid (in November) and I'm looking for more work that I can do from home to fill in the slow season. Even if I did nothing, I still have enough money, so don't worry. I've been building with lego my whole life and I know I have enough talent to make things that most people can't, and I have the ability to master lego CAD software (I used to be amazing at building stuff in AutoCAD). A few years ago I made a thread about a big crane I was planning to build. I STILL PLAN TO BUILD IT, but the past 2.5 years have been spent acquiring even more legos (I sorted legos in exchange for legos) and working on my coaching business. So what I'm most curious to know is what was your most profitable instructions ever sold, and which instructions have sold the MOST (even if they were cheaper and didn't result in the most profit). Lastly, let's say you build something really awesome and you throw it up on your popular youtube channel. Let's say you have ~ 30 people asking you "wow, that's cool, can you build me one? How much?" Have you ever followed up with those people? Once you tell them the actual price it would cost to procure all the parts, assemble it, ship it, and make a margin on it, are they never heard from again, or have you followed through with a sale?
  19. LEGO was kind enough to provide us with detailed models of the JTO model so that it should be easy enough to build it now; at some point I might myself go and create step-by-step instructions, but this will more than suffice. On my Flickr Courtesy of LEGO (obviously), credit to the designers: Nicolaas Vás (Brickthing), Corvin Stichert (Vezok's Friend) and Niek van Slagmaat (who I believe took the photos, so an extra thanks!) Sorry if this does actually belong on the contest page, but I felt at some point this was a big enough issue on its own =)
  20. I am a student, so my annual Lego budget is around $300. Since many of the instructions I want cost between $10 and $20 U.S. dollars, I cannot currently afford to buy them and the needed parts. Because many of those who sell instructions are Eurobricks members (Blakbird, Lucio Switch, etc.), I have posted here to ask if they might consider selling a certain number of instructions, (500, 1000, 2000, etc.), then making them available for free. I understand that you put a huge amount of effort into your models and instructions, and it costs time and money to create them, and I greatly appreciate that. But please consider what I have said, I am sure that I am not alone in this. -Leonardo da Bricki
  21. Hello community! Some of you may remember, the others don’t, but some years ago I actually ran a LEGO CUUSOO project that proposed to create a line of micro ships from your favorite game FTL: Faster Than Light. Despite having a huge following and even some articles on the media, and reaching the ultimate goal of 10.000 followers, the Lego Group did not pick the project for their LEGO Ideas set. I have promised myself that one day I will make the instructions available for the fans, and laid low for too long. But wait no more! I have put the PDF instructions for the micro ships from FTL: Faster Than Light on Gumroad! You heard that right, this is not a drill! The instructions are released in two forms: individually and in bundles! The three FTL Bundles cost 9$ and include a set of instructions for FTL ships plus a FREE instruction of game’s mascot ship The Kestrel! The one MEGA Bundle costs 22$ and includes all available FTL ship instructions AND A FREE instruction of The Kestrel! And finally, each PDF instruction is also sold separately for 5$. !Check out my Gumroad profile to see what’s available! But wait, there’s more! To provide an example of an instruction, and for the sake of self-advertisement, here’s an absolutely free of charge PDF Instruction with The Kestrel and a SUPER BONUS in form of an instruction of SSV Normandy from Mass Effect franchise: >>>CLICK HERE<<< Awesome! Now, a couple of disclaimers, just to be sure we’re on one page. 1. I do not own FTL Faster Than Light. It’s a game made by Subset Games aka Matthew Davis and Justin Ma, and y'all should know that, we're on their forums. The instructions are sold with their approval. 2. These are digital goods, which means there are no piece packages. Those are PDF files that show you how to assemble those micro ships with the pieces available, plus brick lists so you could easily buy what you need. 3. The choice of instructions included in the bundles is not random. With the help of Glen Bricker and polls he made during the CUUSOO campaign we’ve paired them up, so there’s that. Don’t request new bundles or ask to remake the existing ones. 4. Yes, the Kestrel is in every bundle. It’s free, so why not, right? 5. If you want me to make something that you like, go and check my Commissions info post. And now, shout-outs! Shout-out to Subset Games for making an awesome game that inspired me to make this all possible! Shout-out to Glen Bricker, who supported me through all the hardships of doing the CUUSOO project and beyond that. Go, check out and support his current project Brickyt! Shout-out to Stefan “Sastrei” Garcia for creating those amazing instructions! Go check out his Homeworld conversions! Shout-out to all of you who followed and supported LEGO FTL project on CUUSOO, and to those of you who over the years found me and told me that you are still waiting for the instructions to happen! Here’s to you, FTL and LEGO fans! And a little shout-out to my first customer artiestroke from Tumblr. You’re the MVP Roxy. :3
  22. hello can any one help me with this file all i want to do is build this custom model i just need the the instructions but i dont know ment=17681how to used ldraw can someone make this file into pdf file any help would be great thanks Delorean-BTTF.ldr
  23. Hello all Eurobrickers! Today is a great day for the community as a MOC is making its long awaited release to the public! That's right, Mortesv's UCS-Scale Nebulon-B Medical Frigate now has plans ready for purchase The purchase of these plans includes a professional grade manual totaling at 1,493 pages, the LDD files used to create the manual, an excel spreadsheet covering the 531 unique parts lot and their quantity, and a bonus LDD file that contains to scale models of fighter ships to put next to Nebulon when it is on display! So to recap, a purchase of these plans includes the original LDD files, a 1,493 page instruction manual, an excel spreadsheet parts list, and a bonus LDD file with to-scale fighters. The final price for this awesome bundle is 50 U.S Dollars ($50). If you are interested in purchasing a copy, please PM me or send an email to chrdvorak@hotmail.com The final MOC contains 5,728 pieces, which would make it the largest Lego Star Wars set if it were released on shelves. The ship measures about 4 feet long when completed! A lot of hard work went into this project on both the designing end and the manual end, and Mortesv and I are very excited to give everyone the chance to build this awesome MOC! Here are some images from the manual: May the force be with you and happy building!!!
  24. Hi all Just got into the whole modular building idea after purchasing a couple of the predesigned models, Cinema, and Detectives office. I've had a bash a MOCing using the very limited parts I have to join them. I was just wondering if there has been much interest in creating B models and instructions, from the parts in the modular sets, which retain the modular rules?
  25. Hello! I am happy to announce that my first book is now available! It's a LEGO book ... it's a LEGO train book! The book is in German and the title "LEGO Eisenbahn – Konzepte und Techniken für realistische Modelle" means "LEGO® trains – concepts and techniques for realistic models". I've received my first printed copy last week and it seems that the book is in stock at amazon.de and other online shops. The printed version has 294 pages, kindle and ebook versions are also available. Amazon.com also lists the kindle version and the paperback seems to be available from amazon marketplace shops. I've roughly translated the Table of contents, you can find it here: http://www.holgermat...o-eisenbahn.php And I just not did work on the book but also build a couple of trains which are featured in my book. The German Regional-Express was anounce here early this year: http://www.eurobrick...opic=119238&hl= As counterpart for such a modern train a more complex steam engine was needed. I've choosen the BR 10 once again. My first version from the year 2000 was missing moving pistons and rods. This is what my 2016 version of this great German steam engine looks like: Larger image over at flickr: https://www.flickr.c...157668271658135 On nearly 100 pages in the book you'll find various building instructions for various train MOCs. Due to page limitations some instructions could not be included in the book. But I am happy to offer PDF downloads of instructions for my new BR 10 and my little BR 80 on my website. Just check out the train section at: http://www.holgermat...s/en/trains.php 1000grüße HoMa
