    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. Sorry for the big bump, but I'm planning on adding a brick of height to all the passenger cars to make them match the rest of my rolling stock. This means I'll need to order two more trans-clear macaroni bricks and many taller trans-clear panels, among other things. Until I upload the updated pictures, enjoy this "1950's vintage" photograph of my loco on the Eads bridge: It must have been a really bad day when this photographer took this picture, as the fog blankets this photo like strait-jacket. The 4-10-4 steam engine number 7957 is with east-bound version of the "Spirit of the West" passenger train bound for Chicago from Los Angeles with just-concluded stopover in St. Louis' Union Station, among a few other places further out west. Here we see the train on the 1874-vintage Eads bridge, heading out of St. Louis city, which means the photographer is standing on the four lane, no-shoulder, 1951 Veterans Bridge (Known as the MLK memorial bridge nowadays) which is a very dangerous position to be in in such foggy conditions to be sure! (In reality, the two real-world bridges are visible from each other in good weather, but not in fog this dense. Also, the warning about the lanes was true at that time in the 50's, and has been fixed a bit by now by removing one lane.)
  2. Behold, Benny the 1980-something space guy's home and car, in all their Classic Space glory. The house folds open, and the car's roof comes off, both to access the very detailed inside sections. Please see the first post for more details on how this has now been worked into the base wall's structure.

    I personally think it's fine the way it is with the boxy aesthetic. Unless it's made by another alien race, (think like Klingons from Star Trek, or Shadows from Babylon 5, or the official UFO theme by LEGO) I think all human ship should look pretty similar. Not 100% exactly the same, the similar, like branches off the same tree trunk.... just like what you've got now!
  4. The Universe is in chaos. Evil armies run amok, while sky-pirates prey on the biggest of space-freighters. Shadowy organizations with unknown motives leave inter-planetary space police and some stellar governments in chains of corruption and crime, while those who fight back are swept aside. Meanwhile, the astronauts of Classic Space are keeping as little contact as possible with the outside Universe beyond their little pocket dimension of time stuck some-when between 1978 to 1987. But this position is becoming impossible, with constant intrusion into their space by others and with the time-pocket becoming increasingly unstable. So, in the interest of seeking new allies and finding peace in the advanced modern world, a delegation of astronauts where given four years and several ships to do just that. The years is 2018, and what you are about to hear is called THE VOYAGER FILES... (In reality, this is just a picture of my Classic Space fleet so far.... there is more to come soon, though. I also thought up the above TV-style intro as if it were a 1990's sc-fi show, sorta like Star Trek, Babylon 5, etc...) This car and robot dog have been already ordered and on there way, and are to be built in early August. This big guy is to be ordered / built later this year. (I hope around early November) The house (as shown in the first real-world picture) gets trans-yellow windows and other miscellaneous stuff at the same time the car get a built in early August. Consider it an much-needed upgrade, which can be seen more of here. Well, what do you think?
  5. Thank you. Unfortunately, it's missing 5 parts, so it's unusable to me. Don't worry, I was just looking for a parts list for a friend... I may have a work around.
  6. (sorry for the bump!) House model completely revised with new trans-yellow parts, while the car has been 100% torn apart and started over... coming (relatively) soon to real life! Compare the above real picture from 2016 to the digital screenshot from 2018!
  7. It's actually a a "Bait" shop, as in Bait and Tackle or (maybe Bait and Switch, if you want to go with illegal business practices). But thanks for the compliment! Also, the mine has been updated in it's topic here.
  8. Can someone make the 2009 Star Wars set 10195, "Republic Dropship with AT-OT" in LDD? It's listed in the official LDD Set Index but strangely it's just not there when the link is clicked on...
  9. First post updated with new pictures, revised model, and updated text.
  10. Yo Murdoch! You 'member meh? XD

      Yes! You posted quite a few rescue creations on MOCpages if memory serves (right?) How have you been? I haven't been on MOCpages in 6 months....

      Same here. I was actually about to post a MOC telling people where I've been. :P 

  11. This is Benny the 1980-something space guy and his robo-dog K8-E. (pronounced "Katy") They have just spruced up Benny's '79 Moonraker. The engine in this car has been upgraded from a gasoline chugging-monster into a more environmentally-friendly Hydrogen-3 Fusion engine to turn it into a modern mechanical beast with a retro exterior. The roof is removable, and the three seats can fit figures with air-tanks and helmets. The doors open in the front normally, but in the rear they open in a reversed pattern to create a wider opening. This printed 4 x 2 slope part goes on the nose of the car.

    Name of the fictional Lego train company?

    That would have been me who said that. It seemed like Lego Rail Transport Society was good idea way back in 2013 when I made the above picture, but I think nowadays I like Lego Regional Transport System better, as said by @Andy Glascott. It makes more sense that way, with buses, trams, and trains being controlled by the same company... I even put it on my (custom) train station.

    What are you listening to?

    Currently, it's Sirius / Eye in the Sky by the Alan Parsons Project, as part of my nearly three hour lineup of my favorite tunes of theirs, off every single album, including all-instrumental never-before-heard record called The Sicilian Defense, released in their complete works a few years back.
  14. Atmospheric Re-entry Imminent (OR, the story of how Benny gained his robotic arm) Benny the classic 1980's spaceman: What the status on our giant robot? Is he on schedule to meet up with our scientist friends at that Martian crystal miner outpost? You know we need him to solve that invading alien problem disrupting our fuel supplies. Random Technician: We've just lost contact, we think it may have been shot down over Neptune by someone or something. All communication ceased just five minutes ago.... I was just trying to reach you on the holo-phone. Benny (thinking deeply): Any indicators of who it might be? Any sub-space communications in the area or possibly any spy droids who could shoot him down? Technician: No sir, and a probe droid plowed the way earlier, and found nothing new on Neptune or anywhere near it... so it must have been either a freak accident, or... Benny: or what? Technician (whispering): is possibly something we never thought off. Something even you could not prevent nor saw coming: Benny: Spyruis? Insectoids? laser sharks?! Technician: No, sir, Blacktron III. Maybe even using cloaking technology, that or... Benny: or what?!? Technician (eyes change color to red with evil power as he grabs Benny's right arm and begins to squeeze really hard): Internal sabotage! (this post is just to prove I'm not done with this idea, and am working on getting things in order for a future purchase of the robot. I also thought I'd tie it into the LEGO Movie 2 poster where Benny has a robotic arm with no explanation on why or how it got there) This piece of custom printed 8 x 16 retro-styled LEGO tile was gotten just yesterday from BrickBuildersPro, as seen here. It is currently awaiting the construction of the command center and walls.

    Looking good so far, love the color scheme!
