  1. This is just amazing! What a labor of love, sounds like 2 to 3 (or more) years in the making. It is difficult for me to get a sense of scale from looking at photos and trying to consider how big it is from the dimensions you listed. Do you have a Technic model you could photograph it next to to give a sense of scale? Wow, I wonder what your next creation could be... Andy D
  2. EB Xmas Raffle 2017 - Winners per day calendar

    Still a 50-50 chance for a few more days. Good luck to all. Always grateful to @CopMike for doing this each year. Waiting you see what the "Huge Manatees" turn out your be. Always fun to see what people build for the raffel. Andy D
  3. [MOC] Nativity Scene

    Very nice mix of religious and secular. I really like it! Do you have a close up of just the nativity? Andy D
  4. This is an excellent idea! IMHO it can make a better looking, more versitle skirt. I need to remember this and start using it some of the time. Thanks! Andy D
  5. I finally got back to this thread... @Lowa have you made any progress with the Arduino to PF motor interface? I am still interested. Andy D
  6. Thanks, I have a BL order for some poinsettias, I will use them in my Christmas setting next year. Andy D
  7. [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    Now this looks more like a 50's diner. Back then they were single story structures. i may have to build something like this... Thanks for the inspiration! Andy D
  8. That. Is always a gamble with LEGO. Some popular sets get a rerelease, some don't. In the past I have seen this happen to the 8258 Crane Truck and more recently the Taj Mahal. Good luck! Andy D
  9. I don't know conversion rate between GPB and USD, but I have seen this set on eBay for $300 to $400 USD. If you want it, and can afford it, get it as the price is only going to go up. Just make sure it is genuine LEGO! I noticed one on eBay that was not! Good luck, Andy D
  10. Very, very impressive. This must have taken many, many hours to build. The colors are spot on, very Christmasy. I think one of my favorite parts is the Christmas tree! Very clever the way it goes through the floor. I have a couple of questions... Do you have a view from the side of the tree? Where are the red poinsettia flowers from? Thanks for sharing this, Andy D
  11. From Sunny England

    Welcome @cadman. I noticed you said you have a grandson. You might want tho checkout this thread... if you are over 50, just say "badge me up" and you will receive a wonderful oldtimers badge, like mine! Have a great time on Eurobricks! Andy D
  12. EB Xmas Raffle 2017 - Winners per day calendar

    Well, better than a 50-50 chance for the first 15 days. We are all hoping to be on the good side of the 50-50! A huge Manatee would be great! Andy D
  13. No kids at home. My son is moved out and married. I may build the van just to look for ideas, then, into the parts bin. Andy D
  14. I agree about the size, it is sized well to fit with the other WV buildings. My solution for the van is... just put ît in the parts bin. I don't like vehicles in my village. It is a walking area only. The only thing allowed is a Kiddie train. I built the station the same level as my other WV buildings, it is just a ticket sales for the Kiddie Train and a Coffee window. I will post photos of my WV when done, hopefully later this week. Andy D
  15. [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    The car reminds me of the pink Cadillacs that Elvis liked so much. I wonder if it is a nod to Elvis? Andy D
