    Hello, and welcome to my profile page. I have a room full of LEGO town, railway, space, Doctor Who & other assorted sets / MOCs / MODs. I built my town featuring these MODs of sets: Medieval Market Village, Town Plan, Diagon Alley, World City / CITY, and Trains.
    This are all my buildings I own:

    -Old Blacksmiths, now my house with finished bottom floor and staircase.
    -The Tavern / Pub / Bar from has an inside staircase.
    -Ollivander Wand shop is used as Bob's Adventure Supplies.
    -Gringott's is now First Imperial Bank.
    -Borgin & Burkes is my fictional local Ironwood Lego Users Group (Iron-LUG) meeting spot, featuring a Micro-LEGO layout.
    -There is a custom two story Post Office.
    -Town Hall borrowed from the 2008 Town Plan remake.
    -Triple 32x32 base-plate long World City-style train shed

    This all goes along with 61 trains (rolling stock and locomotives) and 6 structures (such as the above station and shed, but with bridges, a water tower, and several other objects)

    Thanks for viewing!!

  1. After three years of piecemeal acquisitions here and there, the Western layout is slowly coming together at last... Just some wild western wagons and a stagecoach. The Army ammunition wagon with cannon is inspired by set 6716 (covered wagon) while the stagecoach is a color-swapped version of 79108 (Stagecoach escape). The red delivery wagon is a snake-oil salesman's shop, while the two tan wagons are to be used in the western town I plan on building sometime next year. This model features very slight modifications to set 31048 (Lakeside Lodge) to turn an already old-style log cabin into a more Wild Western style building. I simply removed the chair from the dock and cooking fire from out front of the dwelling. The good thing about having two of this set is I get to use the one from a while ago that I had torn apart to make changes to the later finished one. (Such as taking most of the "glass" windows out and replacing them with opening frames and shutters. This works beautifully except in the one spot where the space was too small to make it work.) The inside features a rifle on the wall, a bottle of moonshine, a cup, wood stove, table with letter and pen, and a simple bed. This bridge design was originally downloaded by me (I don't remember the name of the original designer who created the bridge) from the LEGO Factory / Design By ME page in 2010-ish and was never built in real life due to questions about it's strength. I came across it again while looking at my MOCpage account's older files and made it into the version seen above using newer parts and a longer frame. The new version of the bridge fits any of my trains, and should fit all official LEGO trains except for double stack containers such as sets 10219 (Maersk Train) and 10170 (TTX Intermodal Double-Stack Car).

A big thank you to Wes Turngate over on Flickr for helping get the angle right to put the bridge supports in place. The LDD file is slightly different than the pictures as it is 2/3 of a brick taller to add in the proper parts to make it work. The bridge fits any of my trains, and should fit all official LEGO trains except for double stack containers such as sets 10219 (Maersk Train) and 10170 (TTX Intermodal Double-Stack Car). Side view of the bridge. The old design is on the left, new is on the right. (NOTE: The new bridge is in the LDD file, but the old one is NOT!) Here is the ldd file for the newer bridge: bridge link As usual, comment, questions and complaints are always welcome!
  3. The inspiration for most of my truck's style was the truck from Steven Spielberg's debut movie "Duel". The truck used in that film is a 1955 Peterbilt 281/351, and looks like this (not my model!) This model was made by Flickr user Karwik, as seen here.
  4. Sorry for digging up this thread, but the tanker truck has been replaced with a semi-truck version inspired by set 8486 (Mack's team truck). This thread needed a face-lift at that point, so I re-uploaded the newer pictures to the main post, and changed the writing around quite a bit. I hope you enjoy the new stuff I put in, as this should become a real-world MOC by January 2018, a full year after the first post on this thread was created. Once again, sorry for the Frankenstein-bumps every six months.
  5. I don't think these wheels exist in red @McWaffel... The other wheels involve too much friction. Also, in other news... The project is almost done, as I just need some final boiler-top parts, the cowcatcher and the 30-some odd letters for the tender! Here we see the engine maneuvering through some tight switch track.
  6. Hello again! Could someone please make set 70656 (garmadon, Garmadon, GARMADON!) in LDD? I only need the shark mech so i can make a black / dark bluish gray version without legs/ feet for my Adventurers bad guys, and don't want to buy the set just replace 99% of the sand blue parts. Can somebody please help with this? I don't think there are that many new parts on the model...
  7. [LDD Moc]: Space Police IV Outpost

    I personally really like your model, after having built my own SPIV theme. Also, don't feel bad if no-one post on your threads, I've had many of mine sit for months with no responses, just views. Look at it this way: your post could be helpful to someone who isn't a member here (yet), and who you inspire to do something similar. Your never know who might be reading, after all!
  8. Favourite Locomotives?

    my favorite is a toss up between the 1950's GM Aerotrain, a failed prototype... ...and Frisco 1522, a steam loco that has been sidelined in 2002 after issues with the boiler tubes and funding problems... darn you insurance prices!! (picture in spoiler for size) Here we can see my Lego versions of these engines, along with War-baby Daylight 4460: Top row: Frisco 1522 (4-8-2 Mountain type) Middle row: Southern Pacific 4460 (4-8-4 "Warbaby" Daylight) Bottom row: General Motors' Aerotrain (failed experimental prototype diesel + consist)
  9. Sadly, this model will not be built, but you can build it if you want. Please post pictures if you do @turk187!
  10. The finding and ordering of parts for the behemoth 4-10-4 steam locomotive named "Red Devil" has begun. I've decided to use 4.5v / 12v era wheels for the tender, as there are no 9v / PF era wheels in red except for the steamer wheels with rubber bands. This will be my longest loco yet, and as such it won't fit in my train shed. (the cowcatcher sticks out by about four studs too much.) Also, the ten red drivers cost about $40 dollars, (OUCH!) but since I have the red 12v train wheels and small flanged loco wheels I think it dragged down the cost a lot to a more reasonable $170 for the remaining parts not seen above. Any thoughts?
  11. This model is the train station and is currently sitting in parts in one of my bins, waiting to be assembled on Christmas morning, so stay tuned for real life pictures on that day! NOTE: Another older station model is being disassembled for it's parts to be used on this project. That model hasn't been taken apart yet, but it will be. This picture shows only about half the parts needed. Also, the first post pictures where updated and re-arranged.
  12. BUMP: The Army fort has been remade from this... ...to this, with the updated Fort Legoredo model is next on the build-list. Any thoughts on this update?
  13. The engine has been switched back to the RSD-12 diesel, and new real-life pictures are in the first post!
  14. six month BUMP: I updated the main post in almost every way, with a new freight train (it was actually built in may but I forgot to add it here. ) and a updated tunnel, among other stuff. The trio of engine is all the ones I want to build for my Western layout. The tepees + fort and town are next on the list (in that order), after the parts for four of the carriages seen above arrive (the stagecoach is already built). Sadly, the double-track tunnel may never be constructed... Enjoy!
