MOC: DSB Litra EB (Siemens Vectron) 6W

Recommended Posts

After a long time, I have finally tried my hand at train building, according to my own design.

 DSB Litra EB (Siemens Vectron)

I want to stick to 6 width models to fit official sets

 

Length: 40 studs

Width: 6 studs

Powered by 9V motor

 

The first three Vectron locomotives arrived in Denmark on 14/9 2020

Siemens must supply a minimum of 42 new electric locomotives to DSB

Nice work on the Vectron. The front angles are hard to get and you did well. I applaud you for working in 6-wide. I do the same and it is challenging to get good results.

Nice job on the windshield area and I especially like the way you did the side handrails, would not have thought to use that part that way.

That's looking really nice, with some clever part usage.

I'm not familiar with the prototype, but based on the one photo you included, you might be able to use grilled cheese slopes "studs" forward below the windshield. Speaking of the windshield, did you consider 1x2x2 trans clear panels instead of the windows? There is a thin black band (gasket?) around the windshield, does not look like there is a perfect lego match, the panels would be too small and the windows too large, I don't know which would be better.

Anyway, good work and even better in 6 wide.

Thanks for the ideas, i will consider the possibilities. :thumbup:

I have tried the 1x2x2 clear panels, but i thought the black windows worked better but definite not perfect

Great work, you have caught the lines of the locomotive with great accuracy in spite of the width 6 studs. :classic:
This excellent solution will allow you to have a lean and fast locomotive :thumbup:
The handrails are made with an ingenious technique :pir-huzzah2:
