And here it comes!

Here you can see it without worrying about getting run over.  I tried to use a lot of bright friendly colors, at the same time as keeping it mainly yellow.

The door actually opens - it slides along the wall. It really took me a while to figure that out! The door stickers are from the Kendo Kai Ninjago Training Set, so they are official TLG, not my own.

The inside of our monorail - six seats - after all it's just a simple contraption to get around town - and that's about it.  Not enough space for more, really.

Cool monorail, the sliding door is a great feature  :thumbup: I think fewer complimentary colors would have been better, just pink, purple, and yellow for example. Good work overall though  :classic:

Actually, that's not where it came from, I just started building.  First I decided to do a Dune Buggy, then a dog sled, then I turned it into a space vehicle.  Pretty soon it was a bus, then a barge, and before I knew it it started looking like a monorail!   :laugh:
Yeah, a bit too much on the colors maybe?  I really wanted to find a use for some of my lime green somewhere though  :wink:

looks innovative... but doesn't look "FRIENDly"

:sweet:


Honestly though, my first impression was to hum the "Yellow Submarine" from the Beetles.

It looks incredible. The colour scheme is very colourful which suits your MOC, but I'm not sure if the colours are right to call it a Friends monorail... but great work nonetheless.

That is a good MOD.

I'm sorry to criticise though, but this is really too blocky and yellow for a Friends monorail. In my opinion I feel it would have been much better in white, pink and turqiose/light blue.

I would prabably have used more pink and less green if I could have, but that's really almost all the pink I have.  :cry_sad: White didn't occur to me though, I could probably have done that.  Thanks for the feedback anyways, nice to know what other people think!  :classic:
