  1. That's a neat idea for the road! As much as I like the old style road baseplates, they just aren't wide enough for the new 6+ wide vehicles. Have you give any thoughts to curves? Curtis

    MOC: Tramp Steamer

    Thanks! The lights would probably look better with a 1x1 tile instead of a cheese slope on top, but that's what I had in that color.... Curtis

    MOC: Tramp Steamer

    Thanks for the comments! It was a fun build, and the kids seem to enjoy it. The African Queen would be a neat boat to build, wouldn't it? It's amazing the lifespan of these old steamers sometimes..... Curtis

    MOC: Tramp Steamer

    Built out of the wreckage of the Black Pearl (lost at sea under the helm of a neighbor's 4-year old), here is a model of a turn-of-the-(last)-century freighter. I had wanted to do a freighter in LEGO ever since seeing plans of a steam schooner in a magazine some time ago, but finally got around to it :) And besides, my daughter was running out of space inthe LEGO rowboats for all the gear to take along on an expedition, so this solved that problem, as well! It has operating hatches and a crane, for loading those really heavy items. And a detailed interior....

    Thank you, lightningtiger! I like to call them 'Cozy Ponies' Thank you, soccerkid6! Thank you, Leela! I wasn't a big fan of the large panels they used for the trailer, so that's where I started the moc. Curtis

    Off Road Fire Rescue

    Thank you! Perhaps TLG will start broadening the torsos and legs available :) Thank you! The door attachment isn't as sturdy as I'd like, but it was a fun experiment :) Curtis

    Off Road Fire Rescue

    Off road fire rescue truck; modified from set 7942. I though the original looked like a bug with the wheels sticking out as far as they did... In addition to widening it to fit two Friends across, I added opening doors. The trailer is unmodified from the set.
