    FEC #153 4-6-2 Pacific Locomotive

    Have you gotten to run this? The emereald chassis needed alot of work to get it runable without issues ... Even after she was still a finicky machine. Mine personally has to run CW not CCW I think some finishing decals would suit the model well though it looks fairly similar in shape so well done.

    [MOC]HI-Rail Utility Truck

    Im not so sure if these are popular in Europe but they are everywhere here in the states. I designed this to actually sit on and off the rails as the rail wheels do lift up off tracks. Will begin ordering parts for them shortly And in Brick ... Still working out the stickers for these.

    La Comete

    You safely package her in a box and send C.O.D. to me ! Problem solved ! Its a really enjoyable ship ... I would hate to see her broken up but I know a grand ship would fill its place. If your no longer attached to her I would suggest this ... However personally I would more like to see her reinforced and rebuilt similar to original.

    Opposed to no ... But questionable ... What would the WTC be doing in a fledgling pirate settlement?

    Casey Jr. Circus Train

    Looks good ... I see a few bricks that dont secure well though... The main one is the whole boiler ... Perhaps changing the last plate to tiles. That will allow the boiler to set down all the way and not fall off with repeated play. The other is the canopy over the orange car ... Looks like it will fall off at the slightest jaring. Also the front truck looks as though it will cause problems going through switches. Instead of the double joint try making the only pivot point at the engine and the connection fixed on the truck side. Not bashing your model just some creative criticism with things I've learned along the way.

    [MOC]HI-Rail Utility Truck

    So got the bricks for the truck together still need to gather some stickers but im happy with the connections. The service bed is fragile on assembly but once together it can handle smoe fair amount of play but breaks apart with heavy play ... But will work fine for the layout. The LDD building instructions were a nightmare though ... Anyone good at doing instructions? (Updated pics in first post)

    6 Wide Northern Pacific 0-6-0 with Power Functions!

    I really like this ... The way you did the pilot reall stood out to me ... Of course those custom rods really dress up any loco. The engine drivers are another part I really enjoy on this. But there is a ton of great detail in this lil loco well done

    2 Powered Up motors on one train?

    You can use a and b with the left and right side of the lego controller however you can not control them both from one button without the app (and a device). The second motor will help pull power (especially in curves) however as it has a second motor it may draw batteries just the same. I run lithium energizers and usually can make it through the day or only one change for a long houred show.

    [MOC] Alco CP1320 (Ex Renfe 313)

    Love the way you did the backgrounds. Are you taking the models to a location or just editing them into a scaled photo? The trains are really well put together as they dont look like lego at first.

    Clay Carling's Adventures in Jameston

    The 80's and 90's bricks still can make great MOC's don't limit yourself to a peticular style ... Check out my distillery (very early in my BoBS game and fresh out of my dark ages) only a handful bricks from beyond 2003 in this build as I had not bought any new sets yet.
  22. fine very love the verticle mill. Also the sloped sides and lots of extra detail!

    [LOGO Contest] Design the official BoBS Logo!

    @Khorne @Kai NRG @Darnok @LM71Blackbird like Bregir said don't be hung up by the word "logo" The cat A is for the eb top page to replace the bunnies yes lol (if you scroll to the bottom of the page you can change the theme to rid yourself of bunnies lol). The intention was to have a banner displayed at the top of the forum (similar to the technic subforum) The cat B is more of a larger picture for use more outside eb to draw players. Think of this more like box art on a lego set or video game ... Something that makes you want to Play. There is no requirement to enter both cat ... You can enter either A or B or Both as long as your image fits the size and quality. The images do not need to be vector art (but can be) a scene built out of legos would be just as acceptable. Feel free to build multiple scenes and photo edit them into one. If your artistic frel free to draw or paint. Really as long as its creative and well represents the game it could be any medium as long as we dont mislead people. To answer the google question. As long as the image is not copywrited or watermarked it should be fine. Hope that clears things up a bit.
  24. Apparently lol thats odd as I only typef it once
