MOC: Boxcar Blue
Posted 05 July 2009 - 05:21 PM
I'm really enjoying my latest train purchase, 7898 Cargo Train Deluxe. After building the little red boxcar contained in the set; I thought, this would be a nice boxcar to replicate with train pieces from 10183 Hobby Train. Using blue instead of red, and adding some sloped bricks with ladder pieces (like the proto-type images of set 7898), here's the end result:
Proto-Type 7898 Boxcar with sloped bricks:
My "Blue Version":
I may add some decals similar to 7898, but I like the overall design of this little boxcar.
One of the nice things about set 7898 is the cargo size which is the same as that found in 7733 Truck and Forklift (4x6 plate with two 1x4 plates), as well as 4512 Cargo Train. This makes the cargo interchangeable for added play value.

The final result turned out very nice.
After seeing the close-ups from your photos, I can say that this small addition of the slopes and the ladders make the boxcar even better.
The blue colour really fits and works well and to tell you the truth, it makes it look like a classic town car . I don't know how and why, it is just the impression that it leaves to me.
Very nice work again!

“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”

Everything I build seems to turn out like a Classic Town build (can't get past it).
