[moc] CP H1e 4-6-4 Royal Hudson

Recommended Posts

I don't know why, but after like 10 hours of working on this, it still looks off to me. The photos line up, and I incorporated a lot of extra SNOT stuff (I'm particularly happy with how the steps to the cab turned out - I feel like they are about as slender as they could be) to push the envelope... but something still feels wrong. Sigh. Oh well.

Nice and a massive build and i love some details.

For the first, i have two suggestions:

- use reddish brown windows instead red windows

- for me: the 2x4 black tiles are too massive at the side. 1x4 tiles are too small. Maybe use 3-4 plates or 1 x brick with 1 tile above

Questions:

- do you will buiild this locomotive in real? What is your drive setup in this case?

I'll change the colors. Unfortunately, the boiler playing precludes using anything but tiles on the sides.

I agree it looks great as well as with the color of the windows suggestion. But of course I have to add some suggestions:

- The cab to me looks short by one stud; a 2x2 instead of a 1x2 tile forward of the side windows would be good.

- The rear of the tender also looks too short; I'd change the 2x4 tile section to another 6x6 panel.

That looks unbelievably good!  bogieman beat me to the one thing I noticed - the cab might be 1 stud too short.  I think a few well-placed stickers will go a long way to make it really look like the source.

Nice Job!!!

I think you did a great job capturing the essence of this locomotive. It might be worth attempting the running boards studs up instead of tiles out. I bet 3 or 4 plates would get the height right. Of course for the experiment you don't need to make it structurally sound, just a quick mocup to see if it looks better. You might even want to try it in dark red or reddish brown.

A close look at the above comparison, it looks like the front of the smokebox on the lego model is to the right by 1-2 studs of the HO or O gauge model. I wouldn't worry about lining up the pilot as you did since the lego wheels force one to distort pilots etc. Also, don't assume that the model is 100% accurate, they might have altered features to meet their needs, e.g., the large gap between the loco and tender.

 

Anyway, looking good.

How about a plate and a 1x4x1 panel? That should give you space for the boiler.
