  1. Thanks, that's what I was hoping to read. I already had the feeling that it was stable (otherwise I wouldn't take such a picture) but it's sometimes better to ask about a second opinion.
  2. Thanks for your suggestion, there is a strong beam on the inside, where the liftarms are fixed. The skin itself doesn't need to support the whole weight. Thanks, see the following pictures. Thank you for sharing your experience. Here are two pictures showing the internal structure. I build the zeppelin in two halves, so I can transport it better. There are four liftarms (the black ones) which connect these two halves. http://Zeppelin WIP 4 by StefanEris, auf Flickr http://Zeppelin WIP 5 by StefanEris, auf Flickr
  3. Hello Technic people I'm currently building a Zeppelin which should be hanging form the ceiling. The weight is less than 3kg (about 6 pounds), and there is a frame with techinc bricks on the inside. The whole construction is held together with pins and I use two times two liftarms (so there are four liftarms) to have a two ropes connecting the Zeppelin with the ceiling (at least, thats the plan). Now my question: Since I think that the critical part are the four liftarms, which might break. Can these bricks hold the weight for a certain time (several days)? Here's a picture of my work in progress: Zeppelin WIP 3 by StefanEris, auf Flickr

    MOCs: Models of trains running in Hungary

    Thanks for your ideas. I will post a seperate thread when I finnish my train. As you pointed out, the windows are two studs apart, which also doesn't look good compared to the original. So there are several things I want to change. Ontopic: I think it's great how there are quite a lot of different MOC interpretations of this FLIRT (same might also be right for the Big Boy, Santa Fe etc.) where everyone has it's own building style but everyone's train is instantly recognisable.

    MOCs: Models of trains running in Hungary

    I also build in 8w, here's a picture of it in the LDD: http://Idea3 by StefanEris, auf Flickr I hope that 2 PF motors are enough, I have another train with 2 motors and even seven cars, which is running fine. Of course only on flat layouts.

    MOCs: Models of trains running in Hungary

    Instantly recognised, If you only knew what is sitting on my desk since more than two years I once built this version of the FLIRT for an exhibition but never managed to motorise it. However I want to finnish my version for a comming exhibition in October.

    If I understand correctly, you can control two hubs at the same time. So it should be possible to have up to four motors in one train? Is it also possible to have more? This would require, that I can control more than two hubs at the same time.

    SNCF Class X73500

    Good work! You chose a very tricky prototype with all those curves. I like the Snot work, you used quite an amount of headlight bricks. Another good thing is the interiour including a toilet with a door.

    Minifig-scaled remote controlled truck

    This is a great model You did not only build a remote controlled truck, but it also looks fantastic. From a technical point of view, my favourite part is that your truck can handle sharp turns. Can it also handle the original road plates?

    BrickTracks: different curves, PF/9V compatible

    I also backed your project. Let's hope it get's funded.

    [MOC] Bricklyn (Huskvarna 2018 edition)

    Now that's a layout There is so much going on and your Mocs are all very well done. However, the thing I like the most is how you add realism to the scene with textures in the street and on the buildings. These small cracks and paint, that's falling appart are just awesome

    Vintage Train with Be 6/8 "Crocodile"

    Nice crocodile and train. The cars really fit to the locomotive and make a great historic train.

    train car max length

    Hello and welcome to Eurobricks There might be a problem on the switches with the yellow part, which the car might touch due to the overhang. The cars will look oversized if you compare them to standart Lego trains. However there are a lot of people building 8 wide Mocs (including me) and compared to those, your cars would fit well. If you leave enough space next to your curves, everything should work fine, but it may look strange with such long cars on the tight radius. My train car I took for reference here is 62 studs long and the boogies are 46 studs apart (measured from the point where the boogie is fixed to the car). Have a look at the Brick Model Railroader Flickr group and to the discussion OcTRAINber - real life entries. There are a lot of videos of long trains running on standard curves.

    MOCer's will you buy the new train sets?

    I think while reading this thread, that a lot of people are unhappy with the sets. But we shouldn't forget that these trains are aimed at children, like the 100th police and fire station most Afols don't like either. If we take a look at Afol themed sets, like Modular Buildings, Star Wars UCS and so on, we have detailed sets with nice parts in nice colours. I wrote myself that I don't buy the next train sets on the last page. However I generaly don't buy a lot of sets. I mostly buy parts via PaB or Bricklink. What I miss from Lego is a simple set with a train base and wheels, where the buyer can build something they want. Something like the Set 3737. I guess this would also make it easier for a gift, since it would be a lot cheaper and together with some loose bricks, a child can build himself a train car.

    MOCer's will you buy the new train sets?

    My answer is: No I hoped Lego would bring back the light blueish grey axle holder or other nice train parts. Since that's not the case I don't buy the new train sets (unless there's some really good offer somewhere) I like to buy only the parts I need for my MOCs and using the train sets as parts pack isn't an option for me because of the points I said before. Also I would get 16 extra curves which I don't need.
