    Did you try it for a longer time? Usually the 4 motors are too much for the one receiver! One receiver can only manage 9v which means you need atleast 2 with this setup cause you cant put 2 boxes on one receiver. I am using 4 boxes in my crawler.

    For the Powerfunctions-Part i would suggest some modding aswell. I used 2 Battery boxes for the 4 XL-motors for the driving gear. The 2 motors on the left and the 2 on the right are connected with switches directly to one box each pair. So no ir receiver for this part. The 2 switches, one for left tracks and one for the right tracks are controlled by 2 servo-motors which are connected to an ir-receiver. That constallation allows me to drive and stear with only one receiver and only one controller. I can make a picture if you are interested in how it looks like.

    LEGOLAND non-production parts

    The quality of marbled bricks, depending on what colours are used, might not be the same as you would expect it from a Lego Brick. Bricks that cannot guarantee the quality of Lego can`t be regularly given out.

    Here is my progress so far. Changed the Interieur a bit with the balcony part on the right and the conveyor belt on the left side of the big front room. Also I had to jump a little bit within the instructions because parts arriving not in order. Also I figured out better to mount some things first cause especially the front hatch is hard/nearly impossible to mount once the thing is done.

    I think the brown and dark brown are good for the weathered look. If you compare to pictures of the movie its close to perfect where the different coloured spots are. Ofc the brown does not work as perfect as the dark orange, butits the only colour that is close to red. brown. Feel free to build a not so weathered version with more red brown parts. Escecially with the dark orange it will be much cheaper with red. Brown only. The dark orange spots are just on the top of the crawler btw. because the jawas place the crawlers in canyons while heavy sandstorms, so the heavy storms are only scratching the surface of the top of the vehicle ;)

    Yeah it is all a matter of weight. Panels vs. Bricks for example. Its over 200g difference in weight only for the Panels. Yeah they are small but the small numbers do add up really quick. I am still wondering about the motors. Marshal banana used 5 m-motors + 4xl. Here it was said earlier you need 6 xl. What is right? Is the xtra power needed for the big mouth to open and close? (Also I think the m-motors would be much lighter)

    Yeah 1x1 Bricks in Dark Brown are not even existing in Bricklink. Thankfully I got a couple of spares :D

    Hey hello! Great Interiour! I also got the instructions now :) (part of the club now ):D) Do you have some pics of the power functions setup? i am curious ablut the 3 battery boxes only due to the heavy weight and the 6 xl motors and 1 sm motor.... I think the 10 light-cables are neglectable. Are 3 Battery Boxes enough?

    Here are some more pictures of the beauty. Finally completed with a chrome silver round 2x2 Brick a bell and fitting red wheels for the tender :) IMG_20180416_105732 by Ragni Norgrimson, auf Flickr IMG_20180416_105756 by Ragni Norgrimson, auf Flickr IMG_20180416_105718 by Ragni Norgrimson, auf Flickr

    Brick Tracks free sample review

    Very nice to see and a good review! Would love to see it with 9v tracks too. I am only using the PF-System, but sometimews there is trouble with collaboratives if you only have PF tracks on hand and someone wants to run 9v on the layout. It would be very interesting to show the tracks at a local lug-meating. I am trying to get some interest for custom tracks from other builders. We recently talked about doing the step into custom tracks direction with the larger curves. @coaster Is it still possible to get a free sample? I would love to show it in my local lug to break the ice ;) Unfortunately I cant send you messages here!? (It tells me I have 0 messages left to send, try it later... did not even send one today...) I also dont have facebook nor instagram. But maybe you can send me a message ;)

    Hello! Here is my first try on a locomotive and also the first one I completed. Some details like the bell are still missing but overall its pretty much complete. As for the moment I built this i had only a XL-Motor available to power it, so I implemented it into the drivers compartment. The headlamp at the front does light up with the Power-functions-LED. Was a bit tricky to hide the big transparent LED thingy in the headlamp design. Overall I am happy how it turned out, and I hope you will enjoy it aswell! When I got some time I will take some more pictures! Suggestions and critisism are welcome! Lego 4-4-0 Western Locomotive by Ragni Norgrimson, auf Flickr
