  1. MOC: Flying Scotsman - Classic look.

    Glad you like it! I've written the script for the Scotsman showcase and I'll film it soon as Uni gives me an afternoon to breathe. I have considered sharing/selling instructions since I do have some designs for them. However, they're on a program (Not LDD) where I can't get my head around the instruction book software, and neither can my computer it seems. I might give it some time, then release a file if I can figure it out :)
  2. The Blue Comet

    Incredible, It's such a striking engine and you captured the look of it perfectly. Wish I could see it in person!
  3. MOC: Flying Scotsman - Classic look.

    Thanks! The Big Ben Bricks wheels worked a treat for the model. Thanks! I have 2 BR passenger cars so far, aiming to have a full set of 4. Matching LNER - style cars will likely come later too.
  4. Type E Coupler for LEGO Trains

    I like it! Would look great on builds that aim to look more like the real thing.
  5. Sorry, 'Super Chief'. My mistake.
  6. Would absolutely leap on the chance to purchase an Emerald Night as I was too young to raise my own funds the first time around! A Super Chief or Hogwarts Express would also be a good shout :)
  7. Hi all, After finishing my first steam train MOC 6 months ago- the iconic Gresley streamliner 'Mallard', I was eager to get started on another engine. After digitally designing a large roster of engines to the same scale, I decided to stick with the classic LNER designs and build my own take on the iconic Flying Scotsman. The build has evolved slightly since the original design, but not by much. Below is the original render which included the bar along the and green tender wheels. The build began with laying out the wheelbase. This also matches the wheelbase of the Mallard MOC. Then, the tender- complete with all the power functions elements! The motor's proportions meant the tender has 3 wheels instead of the accurate 4. Note the clipped wheel cover on the front axle. It wasn't an easy decision but the details look so much neater because of it. The boiler was next, and after a swift bricklink order the pieces came together very nicely. Lastly, the wheels! I can't say I've seen any MOC's that have used Big Ben Brick's Green wheels before, but here they are, and they look fantastic. There is still plenty to work on, such as decals and working piston rods (that don't obscure the width of the build too much). Fr now though, I'm happy to call this finished. For now. I'd love to hear your thoughts on the build, please feel free to leave a comment! I'll leave with a few more images of the build. - Isaac Info on the Mallard MOC can be found on this thread:
  8. LNER Class A4 4468 - MALLARD

    Fantastic model! Very well done capturing the shape of the wheel arches. I reckon with some of the new tile pieces that Lego has brought out recently you could get a cleaner parabolic curve on the side instead of using those round 2x2's. Maybe something you could look into! Also- love that Flying Scotsman! Never seen that build before but the proportions and colours are spot on!
  9. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'd love to see a modular Train Station, though it seems unlikely after they rejected the recent ideas project. All the same, i think one would make an excellent addition to any modular street.
  10. Custom town vehicles MOCs (working photo's)

    Incredible! I really like your miniaturized Ecto-1 :)
  11. My Modular Buildings - Pau Padrós

    Thanks! You're right it is the 'classiest', but hey, it's fun to dare when you build.
  12. [MOD] Laundromat Modular 16-wide from Brick Bank

    Very nicely done! Lots of interesting detail in there.
  13. My Modular Buildings - Pau Padrós

    Amazing! Love the colors you've packed into it. My favorite would have to be the magic shop :)
  14. Orient Express Thriller!

    This is absolutely fantastic! The gold detailing is just perfect. I'd really love to see it get through Lego Ideas, I think this has enough unique character to set it apart from the likes of the Emerald Night that i think Lego might consider it!
  15. [MOC] 'Bricks Cross' - Train Station

    Thanks! Easier said than done i'm afraid, As I said earlier the computer can't process all the pieces together at once and crashes. I'll get building as soon as I've got the parts!
