    [MCTC: Salida Este] Textile Factory

    These are my absolute favorites of the whole build. I love belt driven machines and you've executed them both quite well

    [MOC] Indiana Harbor Belt 0-8-0

    I think the way you tackled the suspension and all the little details is amazing on this one!

    convert 9v to power functions

    I can say this... The 9 v is great for response and control but your limited in trains running and parts upkeep. Pf is nice for its no fuss electrical but it's frustrating to run in a city layout due to line of sight. I personally would wait for PU. Which I would have told you is a waste two weeks ago. I got to play with the control and it's the way to go line of sight isn't an issue and it's so much easier to control speed on this. Mind you they have a long way to go its a good move for Lego.
  6. I think that was I wish they would hire some maintenance around here haha
  7. I know I've seen it done so I know it's possible but I was wondering if anyone else has done it. Basically I was planning on using only one side of it to make a 0-4-2 switcher but it's super short and the valve gear needs to be where the front wheel is(if left in the stock motor space) my question is do you think this would cause diminished pulling power to the extent it won't pull short cars?

    Pirates - underwater

    This is amazing... I love the extra details like the school of sharks and the mermen. The posing of the plant life is great as well as the other figure posing... There's tons for the eyes to see!

    HMS Argonaut, 38 gun frigate, WIP

    Looking great... The improvements do her justice! May I suggest swapping the white windows for yellow now that the stripe is beige ...

    Any more would have cluttered the space. I think you did it just enough... Or are you talking presentation in the form of a base?

    lego piece height difference

    One thing I notice alot is to change your angle of the viewing camera ... Sometimes that simple able change allows the connection. Sometimes you have to get creative to put the part there then build around it lol.
  17. Your an animal! Lol yet another amazing creation in no time... Hats off to you... I really like the color choice in this one. I discovered something this weekend. Build a stand to prop your drive wheels off the track and turn the engine on... People love it absolutely love watching the rods move!
