    Metroliner rebuild

    Thanks for the reply. The difference between old and new gray is even less noticable in real life than in photo's. Besides.. when did you last see a pristine looking train? Therefor I don't mind slight disoloring. The base is actually built with plates, no prefab train bases used.

    Metroliner rebuild

    Hi everyone, Ever since I was a kid I dreamt of owning the metroliner train. When I picked up the hobby a few years ago I finally bought it.. And.. it did next to nothing for me. It is an iconic set but I felt it was to big, to clunky for my city. So I decided to modernise is. Make it a bit more like a regional train. Below are the results. For those who regard the metroliner as a untouchable classic, this might seem blasphemic. Sorry in advance https://flic.kr/p/2mAEyah

    small hopper wagon moc

    Thanks everyone. Indeed, I borrowed the mechanism from 10017. It is nice and simple. I think I subconciously build these!

    small hopper wagon moc

    Hi all, I've been building some small rolling stock. Because my two boys (ages 3 and 6) also play with the LEGO trains, there were some design specifications: 1. Sturdiness When kids play, stuff breaks. So the wagons needed to be sturdy and easily built. This makes it possible for them to repair it themselves. 2. Ease of operation Any moving parts or functions have to be easily accesible and ease to operate to enhance play. No tipping over the wagon to empty it. 3. Interesting silhouette/colors My boys don't care for realism. They care for recognizable and vibrant. Combining these I built these small hopper wagons. They are easily loaded and emptied and very sturdy. And the are buildable in a wide array of colors. I hope you like them! https://flic.kr/p/2mrfRVB

    [MOC] Castle/Fantasy Figbarf

    These are awesome. Would love to see how the twoheaded gentleman/men and the bucket carrier are constructed.

    Help with a building technique

    Perhaps using corner plates on the back of the inverted slopes?

    THE PIRATE BAY IS GOING TO BE AN OFFICIAL LEGO SET!!!!

    I am glad a pirate set is coming but to be honest, this set does nothing for me. It looks like a big brown mess. I'm curious what the designers are going to make of it.
  9. thanks for sharing the LDD. Great build!

    [MOC] Rotting Leviathan

    What a splendid build! Well done! The hermit crab actually looks realistic enough to be real, having found an actual lego toy ship for a shell. Awesome

    A work of art. Nothing less. The construction is admiravle but the use of color truly outstanding.

    MOC: The Coral Hotel

    As always a masterpiece!
  14. It is a great set but imho completely overshadowed by its predecessor. That being said, the construction of the white house in the middle is one of the most satisfying builds I've experienced in an official set.

    MOC - Mill Raid

    Great build. Reminds me of the old Lego catalogues. There must be some sweet flour in that mill for it to be attacked by both factions at the same time!
