  1. Lego Classic Space Monorail

    The black motor is actually a regular motor covered in plasti-dip, a rubber coating that can peal off later.
  3. Lego Classic Space Monorail

    The entire layout has been taken down. But I've bought more track and built three more monorails, all ready to go now for Brickfair An M:Tron version, built entirely with only the original M:Tron pieces from 1990-91 on a Airport Shuttle chassis, a Blacktron version, built entirely with only the original Blacktron I pieces from 1987-1988 on a Unitron monorail chassis, and a Space Police I version, completing the second generation space themes, also built entirely with only the original pieces from 1989 on a Futuron monorail chassis.
  4. [MOC] Legoland Movie Theater

    There are on a cycle of different patterns in the video. I can also show just one of the patterns, or leave them all on continuously, as well as adjust the brightness, with a remote control. These are ordinary, cheap Christmas lights. I was going to have some custom lighting made with better patterns. But it would have cost twenty, thirty, who-knows-how-much more than what I have here.

  6. [MOC] Legoland Movie Theater

    Thank you all for the kind words. Thanks. It has a simple interior, yes. Just a foyer leading up to four more doors with large Lego Movie posters on each side, all lit up. It looks a lot blue-er than I expected it to. I thought it looked not-so-great in the pictures, but one of them above includes one. Here's a better view though: The majority of the interior is a web of wiring, batteries, and a strong internal structural Technic frame. There are also two compartments, one on each side like so: This is also where I keep a couple bicycles, for when this gets displayed in Ashland later this year. For Brickfair, they will not be included.

  8. [MOC] Modular: Town Hardware

    This is probably my favorite modular I've ever seen. I've seen a lot. I'd never leave, if I was a minifigure.
  9. 1960s VW Beetle - Custom

    This is a redesigned, custom version of Creator Beetle (10252), which I've wanted to do since it came out. A lot of people complained, saying the Lego model looked more like a Citroen 2CV. I personally think it's a great model, with all its details. I have nothing against it. That said, I do think the shaping could look more a little more like the real thing and I wanted to give it a shot. It's quite the challenge, with all its curves. There are only so many dark azure pieces to work with. I figured lowering it as much as possible would also add to that difficulty (not to mention it's hilarious). It took a lot of time and figuring out, but this is the result, which I'm mostly happy with, considering what I had to work with, the goal, and the comically large new fender pieces. All chrome is original Lego, except the wheels. They're real Lego wheels, chromed by another company (randomly found browsing Bricklink one day). The 8-ball shifter knob is from Killer Croc Tail-Gator (70907), the shifter stick from Frightening Knight (CMF s15), the tinted windshielf from Mini Cooper (10242), and the "love" tile on the dash is from the Yellow Submarine (21306). These pieces are unique to those sets and relatively recently produced for the first time, along with many of the Beetle's dark azure parts. Meaning this car couldn't have been built at all a couple years ago.
  10. Fastest LEGO Technic Car!

    I have a Bushnell Velocity Speed Gun. You could use one of those to measure speed. It's simple, accurate, and there's nothing to add to the vehicle.
  11. Monochroming

    I like it. Where did the gray spaceman come from? I take it the helmet is from classic castle, so it's old gray?
  12. Lego Classic Space Monorail

    Thanks, you're all very kind. It is. There are four seats.

  14. FebRovery - Signal Seeker [MOC]

    Here's a little vehicle I built for FebRovery 2017, in the style of Classic Space. https://www.flickr.com/photos/rva-lug/33041658761/
  15. Creator Expert 10252 Volkswagen Beetle

    This is part number 24246 (Tile 1 x 1 Half Circle Extended), currently only in white found in five of the series 7 and 8 Mixels sets. I noticed another in light bluish gray on the front of the Beetle, the signal lights on the fenders.
