Hi everyone. This is my first post, long time reader of Eurobricks, it's one of those sites i visit every day several times!
I have been collecting Lego for many years, and have used the Lego Designed by Me service lots before it shut down. Don't know why it shut down i think i gave them enough money to keep it profitable.
Anyway, here are some of my trains. I have posted many images on my Brickshelf pages.
What i do is design in LDD, then put the models together. As my skills have increased and after seeing lots of techniques from others i generally spend lots of time modifying my original creations.
I have a fascination of all German public transport as you will see even though i live in Australia.
My creations are not 100% realistic as you see, i try to make them best as possible to match what would be commercially viable models for the LEGO group. ie simple construction and design.
One of my latest models is a BR111 class loco. I add the logos in Photoshop. I will add the finished build images once i have my parts delivered and constructed.
I saw some of the model train manufacturers are making the NS locos in DB colours. So could not help add one of those to my fleet.
And my BR182 loco. I will add some decals on the side to make the sloping windows too, as you will see in the bricklink folder.
This model requires a bit of paint to the bogie parts to make them dark grey.
As for some of the built models, here are some links to some of my S-Bahn stock.

Once i work out how to embed images i will add the pics directly.
Anyway enjoy, and thanks for the great Lego community we have here on Eurobricks.
