    [MOC] Frisco 4-8-4 Northern in "Meteor" scheme

    Thanks, all!
  2. Here is my latest creation, a 1:48 scale LEGO model of the Frisco’s 4-8-4 Northern locomotive in its “Meteor” paint scheme. The Frisco “Meteor” ran from St. Louis to Oklahoma overnight from 1902 to 1965. Frisco-class 4500 locomotives, and specifically locomotives No. 4500, 4501 and 4502, being three of twenty-five Northern class Baldwin 4-8-4s built for Frisco during World War II, were later designated for use on the Meteor. These locomotives were delivered in a distinctive zephyr blue, white and gray paint scheme with "Meteor" spelled out across the tender in bold red lettering. I’ve been working on this model the past few months, right up to the last day that my daughter was born. It was a great distraction to help with the anxiety of becoming a father, and now that she here I can say this model is “finished”. I say that with quotations because I still need to build it in brick and with corresponding passenger cars!

    1:48 scale PS 60' "Waffle" Boxcar

    Boxcars don’t have to be boring! This is a Pullman Standard 60’ ft ”Waffle” boxcar I created for Monty's Trains . This design was challenging to get right, especially with the upside-down build. The decals were a pain to put on, but in the end it was super worth it. I am super pleased and proud of how this model turned out, I really do believe this pushed and challenged myself as a builder.

    Looks very nice, SteamSewnEmpire, errrr, I mean ShrikeArghast... or ProvenceTristram? Hopefully you won't get too upset again if somebody uses similar techniques
  5. Awesome, so glad it's back! I don't have anything to submit this year, but if you need another NA judge, I'll volunteer

    [MOC] ICC Bay Window Caboose

    Hello all! It's been a while since I've posted, I haven't had much to share. I've been working on this caboose for a few months now and working on instruction booklets for it to be on Brick Train Depot. It's 1:48 scale, but with an extra stud added in length to allow better interior (a must have for cabooses). I've modeled five roads for this, all with road specific details. I'll only be sharing the Southern Pacific one as it's the only one I have built in brick. Decal artwork is by me and printed by the ever wonderful OKBrickWorks

    PFX brick Sound with Trains

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but is there any update on this software update? I’ve been looking forward to it the first time I read it, and haven’t seen the update live yet, or I just haven’t seen it on the website.

    [MOC] 36' Steel sided caboose

    [MOC] 36' Steel sided caboose

    Here’s my most recent creation, although very basic. It’s a 36’ steel sided caboose. Not much history is known with this specific livery, and can only be seen on a few real examples. It comes with a full interior and hopefully lighting as well in the future. I had fun with this caboose and figuring out what livery to choose. https://frisco.org/mainline/2017/01/29/caboose-1108/ Link to one of the prototypes.

    [MOC] Frisco #1501 (4-8-2 Mountain Type)

    There's one last thing I had up my sleeve for this model, and I wanted to wait until the Brick Train Awards is almost over to post it. I added crew talk to my model on top of the bell/whistle sounds. I really wanted to do something that I haven't seen that many people do with their model, which is crew talk. I had a buddy of mine record sound bites for it, and although it really isn't accurate (as most steamers didn't have a radio) but I feel like it just makes the model feel more alive.

    Lego Ideas 90th Anniversary Fan Vote

    I think everyone is taking this vote wayyyy too personally. It's just a single 18+ set, and probably will stay as a single set. As for the whole Bionicle debate, I know that it's a lot of voter's childhoods, but so is castle/pirates/trains/etc. We shouldn't try to diminish people's opinion on something based off of whether they do like something or they don't. Do I think the probability of LEGO pulling out old Bionicle molds if it does win is high? No, no I don't. It'd probably just be a regular LEGO set. But I do know that it is adored by many, some because of memes, some because of their childhood. I'd be happy with whatever wins, I'd prefer trains, but a single person can't choose.

    LEGO 10294 Titanic Discussion

    I honestly wouldn't mind if they included the iceberg. Was it a tragedy? Sure, it was. But it's not gonna offend me if they include the iceberg.

    Is it another football/soccer stadium, or another sport?? And an 18+ Titanic?/ That'll be huge.

    [MOC] Frisco #1501 (4-8-2 Mountain Type)

    Thanks! The rope for the bell is a detail that I feel that goes unnoticed when it comes to modelling, it really helps tie models together.

    [MOC] Frisco #1501 (4-8-2 Mountain Type)

    Well, this update took quicker than I thought. The model is pretty much done, I'm waiting one one last brick order, rods order (unless I change up the rods again ) and one last decal order. I'd say I'm pretty satisfied with this model. The little details like the rope for the bell, minifig hands on hoses, etc all just tie it together for me. I may re-do the motor to do a dual motor setup, but that's way down the line. I'm not touching this until next year. The valve gear isn't perfect setup isn't perfect, but it gets the job done.
