    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. Main posted revised 3/19/18: Added clock tower and brick-built trains logos, plus redone interior details. Please see the first post for more of the updated pictures!
  2. Thank you for your kind words @turk187! I am printing the window though, with the Star Wars print seen above. Also, I just revisited the rear of the building and added a (opening!) conservatory to spice it up a bit. And to answer your question: all my buildings stand semi-close, with only a couple studs between them. (maybe 10 studs maximum due to driveways)
  3. Sands blue is just too expensive for my taste, though I did look into sand green at one point. Just finished adding a car and chimney flue to the revised building's file which is with the updated photos all in the first post!
  4. The great parts gathering has begun! ...also, has anyone noticed the color and parts similarities between the locomotive and the space ship "Commodore" in set 76084: Ultimate Battle for Asgard?
  5. Just messing around with different color options for the Mad Scientist building. Right now I'm considering medium blue and white as a possible choice.. does this look better @kieran @turk187 @sander1992? I can't do another dull building, as a bunch of my buildings are reddish brown or tan or dark bluish gray.
  6. Thanks! I usually reserve lift-away levels for corner buildings like my saloon and Johnny Thunder office. (To be honest, I keep my town mostly boxed up: no room on the layout yet for it all!)
  7. Train MOCs and Builders - Who/What is Your Inspiration?

    Thanks to @sed6 and @Digger of Bricks for mentioning me! I am deeply honored and shocked that I got mentioned, so thanks for appreciating the work I put out and me!
  8. (slight BUMP) Model updated with the first post's pictures / text re-arranged and edited! The engine has been re-done from the frame up to be inspired by @Sunder and his retro-future locos, with the LDD file in the first post for the whole train.
  9. Train MOCs and Builders - Who/What is Your Inspiration?

    Most recently @SavaTheAggie and his model's inspired me to make a Garratt somewhat inspired by his take on the odd-looking type of steam engine. Way back in 2013, this fellow called Fireglo450 over on Flickr co-inspired my first British trains along with with @ScotNick and his assorted Thomas the Tank engine models, as seen here. Oh, and a fellow called Steve B over on Flickr inspired me out of my comfort zone with his EP-2 "Bipolar" electric loco. I still need to build my own version, but it IS designed and ready to be built in real bricks. That's all I could think of right now, but that's not to say tons and TONs of people have helped me out over the last eight years on Eurobricks alone... and that doesn't count MOCpages, LEGO .com and Flickr, among others!
  10. Thank you for your kind words @Forresto!
  11. Thanks for the advice @turk187, but I like the yellow as it give a splash of color to my rather drab-looking town. If you want to modify it, be my guest as I just uploaded the updated LDD file (with new furniture!) to the first post. Enjoy!
  12. This building was inspired by half of set 76108 (Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown) from the 2018 Marvel Comics line while the van is from set 79104 (Shellraiser Street Chase) from the 2013 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles line. The building has a new rear half to complete the model, which has a ladders and trap doors to get from floor to floor. The two bigger second floor windows on the front side are missing this print for the upstairs Detective agency. The rear of the building has the same details as the front, but without the pizzeria storefront. The first level of the building is the pizza restaurant, with plenty of seating, meat spit, pizza oven, and cash register. Up the ladder and on the second is the Detective Agency's office, with a large desk and arm chair, with a smaller chair opposite the desk. The third floor has the Detective's apartment, with bed, desk, and gun / evidence safe. The roof of this level has a large wooden tank for storing water. This heavily modified vehicle originally came from a 2013 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set. I added doors and printed logo tiles. The roof of the van is removable, so you can get at the drivers seat to place a figure such as the CMF Series 12 "Pizza Delivery Guy" there. The rear of the van holds two pizza's in the warmer. (This building, the mad scientist lab I build out of the other half of 76108 and the van are placed together on the part list I have, and should be built next month or so. Keep an eye on this space for more details and for real-world pictures as they become available!) As usual, Comments, Questions, Suggestions and Complaints are always welcome!
  13. This electric high speed passenger train was inspired by both 7745 (High-Speed City Express Passenger Train Set) from 1985 and 60051 (High-Speed Passenger train) from 2014. The train features two locomotives (with no motors in either), one club car and four coaches. The roof of each car comes off to get at the inside, and all but the locomotives have interior details such as tables and chairs. (The cab cars are supposed to have generators and mechanical details, but I couldn't make it look good so they were removed.) The cabs on the two locomotives have computer screens for the drivers, but the rest of the open space is empty. You can add in PF / or 9v motors to either (or both!) of the locos, but I did not due to my personal preference of hand pushing things around. This car is one of four identical ones that all have removable roof sections. The club car's top roof section is removable to get at the upper floor, but the lower section is not accessible at all. (I did try unsuccessfully to make it work. The LDD file for this model is at brick safe. Please note, the red of the train can be completely replaced by blue, if you wanted to give it some variety. Comments, questions and suggestions are always welcome!
  14. Updated bump: Parts are now arriving, but one order will be late. The modified inside details and train logos will come later... I sadly ran out of funds. This LDD screenshot is a stand-in till the real model gets finished in the next couple weeks. (I hope!)
  15. ColletArrow's old MOC thread

    Keep on posting them, as I love these. Can't wait for the diesels and narrow gauge! (Thanks for thew shout-out, by the way!)
