    [MOC] [LDD] BB-9E

    First of all, I wan to thank Space_jaco for his design. It's awesome. I have bought all pieces and built it. It looks awesome next to my BB-8 While building it, I had some problems. For example, with the mechanism to make the head spin. I have added extra pieces to make it more stable. I thought I would share the changes (Note: I put a penguin figure because sw855 is still not available in LDD): https://www.dropbox.com/s/daplsu4r5lmc4fk/BB-9_Final.lxf?dl=0 Also, I thought we needed the UCS sticker for BB-9E, so I tried doing one myself. My photoshop skills aren't good at all. I've included also the PSD file in case you want to modify it yourself :-) https://www.dropbox.com/s/lrsn7piue5uklfh/BB-9E UCS Sticker.jpg?dl=0 https://www.dropbox.com/s/j4m30f1bdc3htl9/BB-9E UCS Sticker.psd?dl=0
  2. I have bought a couple of Star Wnrs Lepin models. And I've also bought a couple of Enlighten wagons. Enlighten's quality was passable because the wagons I bought didn't have too many pieces. But one of them which had a few more showed the problems of this brands: sizes of bricks are not consistent and it was difficult to a point to make all pieces fit and that the model didn't fall apart. Lepin's quality is much much better. It's far from being Lego quality, but it's very very good for the money you pay. I bought a couple of AT-ST for 1/3 of the price of the original Lego one, and they look very nice on my shelf. The only thing I dont like at all from Lepin is the "transparent" pieces. A link was posted before with a comparison of the pieces and I agree that Lepin's transparent pieces are foggy.

    WA AB Class Locomotive and train - LDD

    Thx for your tips. I think i'm not only "green" in terms of building methods but also in terms of proficiency with the LDD software. I was copying the containers as an exercise, and I cannot make the doors close >_<!!!! I'll keep trying, haha. When I'm done with the doors, I'll try to guess how the sides were built =] Cheer, Gololo

    Well, I would really appreciate it if you shared the files for the containers and the gondola wagon carrying them, and also the sheep car. I am back to Lego after almost 20 years of absence and I'm a complete noob at building techniques. I've been experimenting with LDD to develop a knowledge, but I'm still far away from being able to make a complete design by myself

    Any chances you would be sharing your LXF files?

    LEGO Star Wars UCS 75060 Slave I

    I'm not too much into minifigures. If you can get it for 170$ without them, go ahead. If you're particularly interested in any of them, most likely you'll be able to get them for less than the >80$ difference you talk about

    LEGO Star Wars UCS 75060 Slave I

    I mailed TLG about 1 week ago and got no answer. I have called this morning to the freephone for Spain: 2 operators (mobile and landline) say it doesn't exist. Tried from work SIP phone and got rerouted from Spain to DK then to the UK. The agent was surprised to receive a call in Spanish, haha. But going to the point, the agent spent about 5 mins looking for the reference. He told me he couldn't find just the stickers (they were bundled with the instructions). But he spent some more time looking and found the internal reference. It wasn't easy to find apparently

    2015 LEGO Trains?

    As I said in a previous post, I have "bricklinked" 2 trams (lego-8404 type) in red and yellow colours. I have motorized them and they work very well on the train tracks. The only little problem is that the small train wheels are very noisy =P Maybe I could lubricate them... I'll have to look into that....

    2015 LEGO Trains?

    OMG 170€!! I'm only interested in the Tram! I think i'll bricklink that one when parts become more available. I have built 2 trams (from model 8404) in red and yellow and motorized them. They look awesome :D

    I like the design of the tram. I'm only ... disappointed this is going to be difficult to 'motorize' :-(

    Could you post some pictures. I'm curious to know how you did it :-) Cheers, Gololo

    LEGO Star Wars UCS 75060 Slave I

    Received my Slave I 2 days ago. Waited till Saturday to enjoy a slow build while watching TV or listening to music... So I open the box and..... HALF OF THE STICKERS ARE GONE. Weird! Most of the stickers in the sheet are missing. I checked the bag and the box and it's not been manipulated. I used a couple of stickers and then I checked the sheet trying to see the reflection of light on it. You can see where I removed the stickers (smoother surfaces) and the rest of the sheet where there was never a sticker to begin with :-( I'm very disappointed I couldn't finish the model today completely. I have emailed the Lego service and I'm sure they will send a replacement, but after a 1 week wait (it was out of stick) and 2 weeks more for delivery (I have no idea why the postal service in Spain kept it for >1 week in their offices O_o!?!?) I have to wait yet ~2 more weeks for the stickers :-/

    And some of my locos at work.

    Nah, I'm not able to reproduce your layout in Bluebrick perfectly. I'll guess I'll have to try some more nights. Hehe :-) Thanks anyways

    Hi Udo! Love your trains! I don't think I'll be able to afford MOCs for the foreseeable future. At this point, I'm happy building extra carriages for my Lego trains and playing with different geometries. About the geometries, I really liked the corner you have in your layout. I've tried to reproduce it in Bluebrick, but I'm unable to do it. I can't make the tracks fit withuot "forcing them" and I dont really like to do that. It may be the time of the day (4:25am), the fact that I'm doing this while I do my night shift at work (don't tell my boss), or most likely that I'm really new to the Lego Train world (just 3-4 months, hehe~). Any chance you can share your layout in BB or similar? As you can see in my printscreen below, I can't make it fit! :-)
  15. @Eric & Mike Thansk for your quick responses. I'll give it a thought. I'm a little short on money at the money and I'm torn between more tracks or completely ruining myself for my bday with the new SW Slave-I Cheers, Gololo
