    Bricksby station - starting a layout [WIP]

    I think this gives it a certain quaintness that gives is a better "British" feel lol Also it looks as though the canopy had been added at a much later date since its Iron and not stone so it gives the idea the station has been there some time.
  3. @LM71Blackbird I like the colors ... Would like to see the panther better intigrated to the beakhead though. @The Neighborhood Merchant i like the progress so far ... This will be interesting. @Wellesley I agree 5 or 6 mids is a good number ... 7 is pushing it. But I have seen it done before. They widened the hull before narrowing to a double gundeck and it looked well done.

    [GoC] Gunboat

    I think the real master is the gun on this ... The clever parts the rope rigging it to the ship and the mobility. That said the ship itself is a treat to look at too. I do think your broad side cannon(s) could use some 1x1 rounds to simulate wheels Well done!

    Sea Rats: Sign-up and Discussion, ERA II

    First welcome aboard mate! Once your added to the faction PM be sure to ask any questions you have in there. Not that the other faction members arent helpful but theres a few things that are handled differently depending on the faction As far as your ship ... While its a great first start there is good room for improvement (which is not bad). From its size I would say its a large Class 1 or a small Class 2 since this is your first in game ship I recommend you licence it as your "free class 2". Just about all general game info can be found in the master index (you can find about ships there and that should help you licence her) I would wait to licence until you can be added to the PM so I can give you some SR specific pointers on Licencing Ships.

    MOC, WIP, Catenary for rail yards

    so from this angle I can say I like neither ... What I mean is I like the windows to create the ladder look on the tower ... Its thinner width wise but looks stronger. I do not like the rollercoaster laying flat ... While it is wornderful snot application I just feel as if its too wide for wire hanging. I like the suggestion of just running a single tube accross. But perhaps this may change with the addition of insulators. Its just right now to me it looks too bulky. As far as the vertical track ... I really like the look of this (although not the side track supports). However I do feel that there should be signals or signage hung from these as part of a busy urban area then sparcely used elsewhere (unless signals need hung). I feel that it has the right depth with a standing vertical but too much height if a signal is not hung from it. Again this is just my personal opinion ... That and 5 bucks still wont get you a black coffee at Starbucks. However what does intrigue me the most is how you have constructed the front of your tram ... I would love to see a how to photo of it. I also enjoy the little details all over the top and sides of the tram. It takes a boring utilitarian design and maked the eye pick up on things.

    Unit Coal Train at Brickworld KC 2019

    I love it ... Looks great. Your hazmat spill needs some response trucks ... But the coloring is spot on! Is it built in a way that is easily incorporated into a larger layout?
  14. I spy some castle building showing through ... Are the hinges for texture or fuction. Very well done the colors go together well and so do the textures. There is just enough to look at as well. Personally I would have loved to see a house frau throwing water out the second story or a supervisor shouting orders ... Just to give it more action

    Bricksby station - starting a layout [WIP]

    There is a couple lengths of flex rod that does this in mine to ... Just use a different rod of same length. I like the revisions to the rear...

    MILS modules with track.

    I have seen the tracks build into the modules and I have seen them simply attached by a few jumper plates. When built-in there is tiles employed under the connection for the tracks so they can be clipped together.

    Coal Gondolas for Unit Train

    Terry I notice you use your bricklink store in alot of your decaling ... Do you print your own? I wonder if it would be a neat touch to do two cars in different colors than lime ... As if they were built a different year and not made it to the paint shop . . . yellow or orange come to mind. Similar to the UP cars ... Some are yellow some are brown painting.

    [MOC] Vintage passenger car

    @jirin this looks pretty good the windows ate well thought out reminds me of the cars from the 50s Heater in the middle of the car was but the flue was usually offset. ( this one is no longer connected hense the odd angle but it vented well to one side of center)

    [MOC] HMS Royal Sovereign by Officer_999_j

    I am quite confused as it appears she is at anchor with all the sails clued but the anchor is hauled away. Other that that mere criticism Its seriously and impressive ship ... Were there any shots of the stern?

    @Khorne @Kai NRG Thats correct time is drawing to a close ... All of you have expressed interest is this still the case? Is the deadline something y'all can reasonably make?
