    Land Rover Series II 88 1958

    That's great! I can hardly wait to see it built in real bricks!

    This is incredibly well done! Please build it in real bricks!

    [MOC] LEGO KTMB 24 Class Narrow Gauge

    That's actually quite simple: I just made screenshots of every single model in LDD and combined them to one image. Then I uploaded this image to Bricksafe and embedded it into my signature (Account Settings - Signature).

    Part 45706pb01 missing on Stud.io

    Try to import one of these to Part Designer, then export it to Stud.io: https://c.1und1.de/@519891332014019803/4uD6kHwYSOe6t1qPfVplKQ

    Part 45706pb01 missing on Stud.io

    Did you download all required sub-parts (scroll down the file page)? I haven't tried, but I guess it should be possible to use Part Designer to put the sub-files together and create the entire part.

    Part 45706pb01 missing on Stud.io

    You can download the file from the LDraw library and import it to Stud.io (but you will have to define connectivities with Part Designer).

    [MOC] LEGO KTMB 24 Class Narrow Gauge

    This ist truly outstanding! Not only does the model look fantastic - you also implemented some ingenious technology. Hope to see more models from you in the future!
  8. Thank you, @Agent 86 ! Up to now, these are my only two Disney cars. And, to be honest, I don't really like Mickey... but Scrooge's limousine may be an option for the future!
  9. Small addendum to my first post: The 313 frequently suffers from mechanical failures and needs repair, so the model can be turned into a version with opened hood.
  10. Thank you, @Tomik ! I like it better, too. But in the comics, the car is usually shown open. There are only very few occasions where you can see the 313 with closed roof.

    That's brilliant! And the video, too - with a perfect choice of music!
  12. Hi all, Being a lifetime Donald Duck fan, the famous 313 car has been on my list for quite a long time. Finally I managed to actually design and build it, so here it is – the 1934 Belchfire Runabout in approximate 1/24 scale (enabling me to use it also as a decoration for my G-scale trains…): The rumble seat is fully functional: The underbody: We all know that it never rains in Southern California, but in Calisota (the state in which Duckburg is situated), it does… So of course, there’s also a primitive convertible roof for the little roadster… … but nevertheless, it’s seemingly still a rather humble vehicle. (The German text in the speech bubble translates as „Daisy’s going out with Gladstone again! Just because this dandy has won a brand-new Snobillac in a tombola! Someone like me with just a small car can’t compete with that.“) But at night, Donald turns into the Duck Avenger, and we get to see the 313’s secret features, like hovering rockets, a telescopic bumper bar, a bullet-proof shield, a laser gun, a grappling hook shooter and a smoke generator… And of course, thanks to Gyro Gearloose’s ingenuity, it can all be remote-controlled from a safe distance: Full-resolution pictures can be found on Flickr. I hope you enjoyed our short trip to Duckburg! As usual, comments and criticism are most welcome. Thank you! Sven
  13. Oh, I didn't know that you're of Dutch origin. I can't guarantee that I will succeed... I just said it MIGHT be easier to build a Kuhn slide than a functional lifting link... Well, in fact I have a little idea how it might work, but please give me time to think about it and try it out. Especially as there are also several locomotives on my list that don't have a Kuhn slide - and I really don't know yet which of all those I will build next.
  14. @Duq It actually seems as if the "Kuhnsche Schleife" was kind of a German specialty - but round here, it was quite popular, mostly for tank engines (see below). Wikipedia has a basic description. Perhaps this illustration, though with German technical terms, will also help to explain the function: The Kuhn slide was used on most DRG standard tank locomotives like the BR62, 64, 80, 81, 84, 86, and even some DRG tender engines had it (most notably the famous world-record BR05, where the large driving wheels left no space for a lifting link, but also the prototypes for the BR41 and 45). After WWII all DB "Neubaulokomotiven" were equipped with the Kuhn slide, too.
  15. In fact, that's something that I had already been considering. I fear it would be a rather cumbersome procedure, though. That would be a nice model, too, I have to admit. However, there are other locomotives on my list... and actually two of them have the Kuhn slide: First, continuing my series of standard gauge industrial locomotives, there's the Krupp "Bergbau" type, Germany's most powerful 8-coupled tank locomotive (surpassing even the 2-10-0 BR50 in terms of pulling power). Guess who is such a fan of this engine that he wrote a Wikipedia article about it... Second, another narrow gauge engine class from one of my favourite holiday areas: Locomotives no. 12 + 13 of the "Kleinbahn Leer-Aurich-Wittmund". With regard to these locomotives, I am still doing research as to whether they were painted black or dark green. I was able to find relatives of former employees of the railway, but even they can't remember (the locos were scrapped in the 1950s, and no colour photos seem to exist)...
