    [MOC] Intercity Rheingold

    Sure I could do that, but it's more about the look and not for extra tourque. I like those silver wheels.^^

    [MOC] Intercity Rheingold

    @*thomas* Good idea, but I would need to use 2 motors then, because a two axle bogie with normal train axles is not looking so good. Maybe I consider it when getting my hands on another 9V motor in good condition.^^ @Xris Thank you.^^ You're really blessed to see such a train nowadays. The last complete Rheingold I saw was in my childhood 30 years ago.=P

    [MOC] Intercity Rheingold

    Finally, most parts are here. Let's go...^^ First part of the build (some parts are still not here) And almost done! Pantographs are still missing, same as two 1x6 dark red bricks and two 1x2 dark red plates. Edit: Oh, and the round technik connectors in black on the lower sides. I'm really proud of the result. Only thing I don't like but cannot change are the black 3L bars and the black droid arms....they should be red but they don't exist in red. <.< Also I did some prints of the DB logo as well as the 103 number.

    [MOC] Intercity Rheingold

    Hey everyone, thank you for all your positive support! I made an update to the design and finaly bought the parts for the E103 locomotive. (Yes, only for the E103...did cost me around 150€ with 9V motor, LED lights and a modern batterie box.) Bricklink is nice, but a pain in the megablocks when it comes to parts with rare colors. And those shipping costs are hell if you have to buy the parts from 7 different shops. >.< So, I will post some new pictures when the parts are here. Please tell me if you like to have pictures from the build process or only from the finished model.^^

    Jep they did. But I think my "updated" version is a lot better / accurate in shape and color.^^ I mean, 7740 was from the 80's, so for that time it was a really good model and I still love it. Thank you guys for your support.^^

    I would if I had the money right now. If I build it from Bricklink parts, it would be around 500€ without shipping costs. Too expensive for me right now and some parts are not existing in those colors. That's why I posted it on Ideas, to get a chance to get it from Lego cheaper directly. But yeah, somehow everyone wants trains, but not the people that are active on the Ideas site. So, chance is little but that's how it is.

    Hey everyone. I wanted to show you one of my own train creations, the Intercity Rheingold from Germany. It's an iconic train from 1970. Hope you all like it. Please check out the Lego Ideas page and support this wonderfull train if you like it. Thank you! ^^ https://ideas.lego.com/projects/f439453c-ecee-4c44-a5de-8c010a3dda56

    Sure, hope this helps.^^

    [MOC] The X-Wing Strikes Back

    Sure thing.^^ So basically I replaced the white 12x1 plate with a 6x1 plate and added another 6x1 and 8x1 plates at the inside. Then I added the white 6x1 tile on top of the 8x1 plate. On the outside I added a white wedge plate which is covered with a 3x1 white tile and a 1x1 red tile to get the Red 5 look. For the canons: You can see all the parts in the following picture. Ideally it would be one part with a 13 studs long technik axle but Lego gives us only 12 and 16 studs long axles, so I had to make 2 pieces with a 8 studs axle with stopper and a 5 studs axle with stopper. It's pretty solid for a 2 piece canon, so it shouldn't be a problem. If you want to have it as one piece, you have to cut down a 16 axle to a 13 one. But cutting Lego pieces is out of the question for me. Especially when such a piece is expensive. (The 16 axle is around 1-2€ each at Bricklink.) If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.^^

    [MOC] The X-Wing Strikes Back

    Hi everyone. First of all, I have to say thank you to cehnot for sharing the .ldd-file for this awesome model. I tried to build it for myself and with a few modifications I succeeded. As you can see, I've decided to have round canon bases. Think it looks much cooler than the ones in the .ldd-file. The canons also have the blue stripes like the original Red 5 X-Wing. Also I reworked the side panels in front of the nose a bit so they don't need to be bend as much as in the original design. The slopes on the wings are from the 75003 A-Wing and the engine covers are from 7468 - Saturn V Moon Mission. Hope you like my version. Thanks again.^^

    Voltage Question

    I'm using a small layout, so it should be ok. But thanx for the advice.^^

    Voltage Question

    Thank you for the answers. Nice to hear that it's possible.

    Voltage Question

    Hello everyone. I'm new here and I have a question regarding the possible voltage for 9V Lego train motors. First of all, I'm from germany and 34 years old. I've played and build with Lego since I was 4. I loved the 12V trains back in the 80's and their advantages over newer systems. But the 12V system had a big disadvantage: the middle power tracks. I absolutely hated them because of the looks and that they bend up often so the trains got stuck. I love the 9V tracks and currently I run every train on 9V and use my 12V transformator for trainstation and town lights and for remote the railroad crossing. So I use 2 transformators, one 9V and one 12V. It would be nice to use only one of them. And that would be the 12V because the 9V is not strong enough to power the lights and has no seperate connection that is always at full power. So remote the railroad crossing is impossible too. But it would be possible for me to connect the 12V transformator to the 9V tracks. Now my question: Would a 9V train motor run at 12V? Or will it get too hot or even burn? I hope someone here can answer my question or has any other ideas. Thanx^^
