  1. Hi, I'm new I realise that LDD MOCS probably aren't everyone's first choice and I myself would much rather see one of these in the flesh than just on a screen but of course the availability of parts, prices and time prevail. We'll start with the less impressive of the two I have to show ;) That appears to have worked, so fair enough. It's Stephenson's Rocket only it includes the provision for a face should I ever feel compelled to add one. Theoretically it could run on a layout with something pushing it around but I don't trust the rigidity of it at all. Not entirely happy with the tender because it's so large compared to the engine itself, but it serves. Now for the one I am actually pleased about, an LNER J70 tram engine. I'm not ordinarily one to use SNOT techniques because I never used to be able to figure out how to make everything fit properly (and I still haven't, really) hence the use of those parts that go around minifigs' necks with a stud on the back. I even made a mock up interior for it featuring a boiler and coal bunkers! As well as sort of an underframe with cylinders Have to say, I'm very impressed with the outcome and it's far better than anything I'd ever attempted previously. I'm particularly proud of my solution to shaping the cow catcher. As with the Rocket, however, it isn't self-powered so I may begin work on a Wisbech & Upwell tramway coach with power functions. Thanks for dropping by and let me know what you think - Nick

    ScotNick's revised and new models

    Wow! I absolutely love the P2 in the pic with the A4 and C1! The smoke deflectors and angled smokebox must have been difficult to do. I like the B1 as well, what colour are those bricks? It has a very pink sort of tone Very nice use of rollercoaster wheels as well. Should we expect some narrow gauge engiens in the future? ;) Love your work, very nice!

    Stephenson's Rocket & LNER J70 MOCS (LDD)

    The chassis of the J70 is like the Rocket in being only 3 wide with a half a stud on each side between the wheel and frame. There is one of those half cross axle stop parts, which can be taken out to allow as much side to side movement as the plates can manage, which is still not a lot but it's a mild improvement. As for the rocket thing, for some reason the real rocket has the chimney on top of the smokebox and the cylinders closer to horizontal than what any of the replicas show, so I suppose we can call it a cross between the two and it will be fine :)
