  1. Hi everyone! Hopefully, this is ok to post here as I'm not really sure where else I'd post it. So recently, I had some time to build and I decided I'd build something ridiculous and absolutely absurd. So here it is: My basic idea was that it is a mobile base made for a few people after an apocalypse or something. Made from nearly 1250 pieces, it features a full interior living space for 2, crow's nest with a machine gun turret, 2 giant propeller engines, and the theoretical ability to float (Since this model is only in LDD, I have no idea if the boat hulls making up the pontoons would be able to hold the weight of the plane or not). Another view of the plane. Another goal of this build was to try and use specialized pieces in odd new ways. For example, using a helicopter blade and fence parts as wing detail. A closer look at the crow's nest. The door and ladder to get in and out, which is mirrored on either side. The small kitchen and dining area. There is also small storage areas with boxes and a chest. There is also a small bedroom in the back with bunk beds. I think my favorite part to build was the cockpit. It just has so many buttons and things to do in, plus it gives the plane it's unique dual windscreen look. I know it isn't perfect or stable, but it was really fun to build. I think it will go down as one of the most bizarre builds I've ever done. If you would like the LDD file, let me know. Thanks for looking!
  2. 8-Wide City Bus

    Hi everyone! I haven't posted on EB in a while and this is my first time posting in the Town Forum. So a few months back, I decided I wanted to design a city bus based on a bus I saw in a Youtube video quite a long time ago: My final model definitely looks a lot like my inspiration, but I'd like to think I put a bit of my own spin on it as well. I tried to squeeze in detail in the front, which turned out alright, I think. The bus has seating for 16 people and a few small places for baggage. The doors can open as well, but for them to work in LDD, two parts need to be removed first. I'm not completely satisfied with the design, as I think it needs more detail and the door mechanism improved. However, I don't have too many ideas at the moment on how to solve those problems. If anyone wants the LXF file, let me know and I can send it to you. Thanks for reading!
  3. Long Trains.... Show 'm !

    @pirzyk Oh gosh, I remember seeing that train at BW 17. I still can't believe only one engine pulled that whole train, though it was shaking quite a bit!
  4. ScotNick's revised and new models

    Great job! That rolling stock gives me a serious nostalgia to the before mentioned blue tank engine.
  5. What kind of piece is this? (RE 460)

    According to Bricklink, it has never been produced in red. My best guess is that the builder made the train in a different color and used Photoshop to change the other color to red. It is also possible they just painted or produced the piece themselves...
  6. High Speed Train Designed on LDD

    I've almost ordered all the parts for this model and I'm super excited to get to building it. I did have to go back and modify the lead engine for Power Functions, so the previous instructions are only if you want a completely "push" train. However, I thought it would be cool if I could get detailing on the door, like this: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=4181px1&name=Door%201%20x%204%20x%205%20Train%20Left%20with%20White%20Stripe%20and%20Train%20Logo%20Pattern&category=%5BDoor,%20Decorated%5D#T=C&C=5 The only problem is, these doors are in red, and my train requires blue doors. What would be the best course of action for detailing like this? Should I make custom stickers or maybe send them to a brick engraver?
  7. Fantastic models! And I love Living in a Box. One of my all time favorite songs...
  8. Chessie SD40-2 in 7W - Almost Done!

    Fantastic job! I always loved the colors that Chessie System used.
  9. High Speed Train Designed on LDD

    Thanks! I decided to add some roof detail, so here's another download link It's totally okay you used my nose on that other model and I'd love to see what the result is. I can create a public google doc that has a parts list (Part numbers, Bricklink links, colors, and quantities) and final LDD download link. Does that sound like a good idea?
  10. High Speed Train Designed on LDD

    It's totally okay. I think all the modifications are fantastic! The windows are not exactly what I wanted in the beginning, but now that I see them on the model, I like them a lot more. The only other thing is, I designed the locomotive's front wheel nose to be like the 10157's, but this one looks great too! I can totally do a parts list after maybe a few more back and forths with the LDD file and it'll make Bricklink orders easy if either of us want this in brick.
  11. High Speed Train Designed on LDD

    Thanks! I wanted to use the windows since they match with the doors and give the entire train the Metroliner vibe. However, if the windows are expensive, I can always change the color scheme to one that works with the parts. By the way, are these the windows you were talking about? On Bricklink, they're going for less than $.10 a piece. Maybe I'm misunderstanding... EDIT: Nevermind. I found the windows you were talking about. Since the link you gave showed a 4 wide panel, I was confused. Yeah. $1 for a window piece is expensive, and I have 4 on the passenger car and 6 on the "Club Car", this could pose a problem.
  12. High Speed Train Designed on LDD

    Thanks! The bottom nose that's right next to the wheels can't be raised anymore, as it would hit the train base and the bogies couldn't rotate. I just posted more pictures and a link in my recent edit of my post. Also, the train wheels can either be obtained through LDD Extended (Which is what I use to build) or import a model that has the train wheels and simply delete everything else.
  13. Has Anyone tried doing an Operating Session in Lego?

    I feel like this would be right up PennLUG's alley.

    Thanks! I actually don't make space for power in any of my models since I don't have space to run them (yet). I find jeopardizing the look of an engine in order to cram PF into it just isn't worth it to me.
  15. Farewell to Amtrak AEM-7

    My favorite Amtrak Engine and one of my top favorite engines of all time. I'm sad to see it go.
