    **Check Out Brick Train Depot - A Ton of New Stuff!!

    The BNSF is a beast at hauling. You can gear it down even more to haul even more rolling stock.

    Printing and laser cutting replacement cloth sails

    I could, although the charge would be around $20-30 per sail. It is a very time consuming process, and the printer I'm using is $80,000.

    Printing and laser cutting replacement cloth sails

    I have a laser cutter, I don't have a CNC machine. The burn marks aren't too bad. Its mostly the surface of the edge that's browned, not the top or bottom of the sail. A nice side effect of using a laser is that it melts the edge so it doesn't fray, a knife cutter would require the edges to be sealed somehow.
  4. Hi all, this is something I've been thinking about doing for about a year and just finally got around to it. I have access to a fancy UV flatbed inkjet printer that can basically print on to anything. I also recently purchased a little desktop laser cutter. I run a small decal business, OKBrickWorks, so recreating the art and cut lines wasn't out of my realm of expertise. Finding good enough photos was a bit of a challenge though and I was able to redraw everything as nice vector images. Additionally, finding a good fabric for laser cutting wasn't easy, I ended up finding a nice media to use that doesn't fray. I've got the art ready for almost every large sail LEGO has made in the past, I just haven't had the free time at work to print so many different items. Anyway, here's a few shots: One of my favorite things is helping people restore their beloved classic sets from their childhood (which is why I got in to making stickers), so I'd love to sell these to folks if they're interested. Send me a message if so. If this is not allowed, mods feel free to remove this bit. I don't make a lot of money doing this, and it's quite time consuming but I do have to charge enough to make it worth the trouble. Let me know what you think.

    BrickTracks: R104 Switch Kickstarter is LIVE!

    I've thrown my wallet at the screen several times now and nothing has happened. What is the next step?

    I tried to add coaster as an authorized user on my credit card but my wife caught me.

    BrickTracks: different curves, PF/9V compatible

    I had a sample of the r56 in my hands at Brickworld. Excellent quality as always. Putting in my order for switches soon!

    Introducing Brick Train Depot

    I'm the one doing the stickers, they are on clear vinyl. Not something you can print at home. Besides, the cost to ship internationally is usually only $1.15. Domestic is only what a stamp costs ($0.45?).

    Me-models website

    What I find funny is that BrickJournal is still running ads for ME.

    Looks good! I'm can't remember if Cale independently asked for Gulf Oil decals or if I suggested them to him.

    Custom Train Stickers

    I usually print on clear vinyl with white ink. Sometimes I'll die cut lettering/logos out of colored vinyl if its big enough. Send me a message on FB or via email to okbrickworks@gmail.com if youre interested.

    Building BMR Freight cars

    Cale sent me the artwork for the next batch of decals and as I was going through them, I came across the Reading one and immediately started collecting the pieces. Looks slick in green!

    I made a Hamburger too after seeing Ecmo's. Kind of pricey in brown. I just used whatever brown I already had, so it's kind of mottled.
