Hello all,

I want to present you all my newest MOC:

Switch Engine UW [front/right] by UrbanErwin(EPJL), on Flickr

It is an switcher for railyards. The build is 7 studs wide.

Switch Engine UW

It is used by the fictional company UW.

As you can see my sticker skills are far from perfect.

Thanks for reading,

Comments, constructive criticism and likes are always appreciated.

It's got some good looking proportions and I like the fact that it's a 7-wide. I think the SNOT grille half-brick offset on the right hand side is a nice detail.

Nicely done on the cab windows.

Thank you

Thanks, 7-wide is in my opinion a great scale to work with, a little more room for detail, but still compatible with sets.

I personally try to avoid STAMPS (STickers Across Many PieceS) in my MOCs as it makes sticker application easier and neater. The UW logo beneath the cab window could fit on a 1 x 4 brick which could be centered by changing some of the bricks for plates (or just changing the build sequence beneath the window). A rather minor quibble....

My Magic: The Gathering background left me unable to read the thread as anything other than "Switch Engine Blue-White".

That said, it's a charming little engine with wonderful proportions. There's some excellent SNOT work going on here, with the grills and other details adding interest without making the engine too busy-looking.

Looks really great!

I love the extreme compact design full of excellent details like the snotted window and that incredible door!

I like also the yellow used for the very front part

Thank you for the compliments

I like this little diesel engine, It is typical of the many industrial engines out there.

Thanks

Thanks, you are the first to notice the door.
