    0-6-0T Irish Terrier Engine

    Thanks! I agree that it does look a bit chunky at the rear, but on the real engine the cabs were modified to be larger, to hold more coal I believe. Heres a photo. My wheels could be a stud or two spaced apart to better match the real thing, but I wanted it to be functional on curves and points.
  2. Hi everyone! Today I am sharing an updated version of an old MOC from 2013 ! It's based off an Engine from a long gone railway in my hometown, a GSR J26, or Irish Terrier as the type were nicknamed. It's a turn of the century tank engine, that operated on a branch line that wasn't connected to the rest in Ireland. I'm quite proud of how far its come from its first incarnation, which can be found here : Without further ado, here it is ! I got Big Ben Brick medium wheels as i found the official Lego large scale wheels looked great but made it monstrously large. Newer pieces of recent years made for nice rear windows, those 1 x 1 round tiles. And finally the engine from the front solo. Those smaller 5 link chain pieces are great! Thanks for looking ! Please let me know what you think!
  3. That looks fantastic! Great use of the space for a same sized train chassis, but it lookslike a buff, mean, 1920s-esque machine. Are you going to put some Sinister Decals on those side panels for extra touch? Either way it looks great and I look forward to seeing it in the flesh if you can do it! Your story you've added about Clutch Powers is fascinating too, hope to read more on that in the future! Makes sense to have all the 1920s-ish era themes part of the same universe, especially considering they all have a degree of spooky ghosts or other "historical" fantasy elements to them. Good work!

    Lego Adventurers desk set

    This is lovely! The raft being attached with the chain is a nice touch and the pyramid is built in a good way to use the limited space given. Plus the little details of the snakes and panel at the front. Only thing I could think is to make use of the limited interior of the pyramid to house the sarcophagus, maybe with a 'ruined' opening? Up to you of course! Great MOC.
  5. Seeing it in the flesh, that brown colour does suit it! Wonderful loco! That car is gorgeous too. As a suggestion which might interest you, there was an armoured train in the 1920s called the Zaamurets that fought across Europe and Asia, very Adventurers-esque, here's one of the turret cars: Could serve as inspiration to upgrade that gatling gun car so Johnny and friends have a bigger foe to fight? Either way, I really like this and look forward to seeing it on the rails I hope!
  6. Another great addition to your Adventurer's themed MOCs! Looks great and I love the engine, but I can't help feel it should be a different colour for Sam? Most of his vehicles in the OE line seem to have a black/gray colour scheme with a splash of yellow here and there, though I know black isn't an exciting colour for an engine, but maybe that paired with some yellow ribs on the engine and yellow lines on the tender could look good? Then again its your design so whatever you think is best!
  7. Hello! Recently i've been stuck away from home with only a small amount of Lego with me so I've been doing alternate builds of official sets to keep my mind occupied, and for the fun challenge of using only the pieces included in a set. This build was made just using the speeder from the Lego Star Wars 75195 Ski Speeder vs First Order Walker Microfighters. Here's the original build for reference And here's the plane! Based off those early WWII/mid 1930s fighter planes. All it's missing is a prop cos I couldn't find the right pieces from the set for it, but I think it looks fine despite that! And a view of the rear. Building with a small supply is a fun challenge and helps get the brain thinking during these times. Thanks for reading!

    Modding the Barracuda thread

    Recently got the Pirates of Barracuda Bay and I love it! Built it first as the island then switched to the ship and I think it'll stay that way haha. But I'm wondering does anyone here have ideas for how to use just the island pieces alone to make an alternate hideout? I'd be very interested to see!
  9. I've done a few Lego Pirates inspired arts on my Instagram, here's a couple: Captain Redbeard's Racer The Black Seas Barracuda v.s a U-Boat (This one's a video if you click here) The BSB and Sabre Island And the last one (for now) A Parrot Vibing (Based on the one perched in Barracuda Bay) Hope ye like!
  10. Really beautiful plane, Vaionaut! Love the use of Agent Kallus head as the pilot, suits the time period oddly enough! How long did it take to build??

    [MOC] Quackshot Starring Donald Duck

    Looks great! Would the jacketless Indiana torso suit better, though? Or maybe the CMF Zookeeper or Explorer?
  12. I recently got the new AT-AT, got a free TC-4 minifigure with it. And then accidentally went back in and bought the new V-Wing and Deathstar Troopers Battlepack, with a free TC-4 Minifigure with each of those, so i'm wondering, is the TC-4 figure worth much? I have one still sealed in the packet, while the other two are buddies in the back of the AT-AT.
  13. So I've moved away for college and in a local Toymaster, I found a box full of old Bionicle and Slizer 'disc ammo', like this: http://brickset.com/detail/?Set=8508-1 and some Bionicle Visorak spinners. There was about 7 of each in the box, each costed about €1.50 I think. I was wondering if they'd be worth anything more if I was to buy them and sell them on?? My guess is no, because they've been sitting in the shop for about 7 years or more, but it's worth asking,... Axle
  14. Is there any MOC that you think of and get an ache-y feeling in your heart wishing it was still around? Maybe you took one piece from it one day, and over time the MOC just disappeared into your box of bricks and was gone? For me it's this one: I apologise for the big picture and bad quality, but I can't seem to get it to go into 800 x 600 size Anyways, it was a tank that was in the original Lego Indiana Jones game, and I was so proud of this thing, I brought it everywhere, and then my dark ages happened and it got busted somehow . I remember spending many an hour in 2008 staring at the model in the game on the PlayStation 2 figuring out how to create it. Fond memories I might re-make this soon, though, depending on if I can find all those threads! There were 3 pairs, 3 on each side. Have you any regrets over MOCs you took apart? I apologize if there's a similar topic already made, but I couldn't find one.

    What head did you use for Mr Latrine? They all look very good! How did you do the collars on Araminta Sedgwick's hands?
