  1. July 2016 LEGO trains and town layout - real life WIP

    This looks really nice, although I'd like to more of that tramp steamer!
  2. Duplo and Lego tracks compatible

    have you checked Bricklink?
  3. Duplo and Lego tracks compatible

    They are (sort of). I was able to make dual gauge track by placing a old gray 4.5v rail on the side of a 9v track to make a dual gauge of 4 studs and 5 studs. Flanged duplo wheels are able to run on the 5stud. I don't think curves are possible.There might be a way of reverse( dual gauge with duplo on the bottom). I haven't tried that (yet).
  4. MOC: 2-2-4 Steamer

    The hard part about building steamers is getting 'em to go around curves! After that they're pretty easy. I wanted this to have the feel of a early railroading era engine. A newly built line's first engine, for example. Maybe 1840's-ish? The front is solid and the back truck has to swivels to allow sideways motion on the curves
  5. Space: 1999 Eagle WIP

    I wanted to make it minifigure scale and promptly realized it was huge. I am waiting for more pieces before I attempt the rest. I am not sure I like this version of the grills on top...
  6. MOC: Mag Rail

    Was this built for Aperture Science?
  7. 8097 Slave I mod

    Thanks for the replies! I feel so much better for the playability. The second photo was created by simply placing the ship in front of the monitor. I googled "cloud" and found an appropriate picture. I set my camera on macro and no flash and that was it!
  8. MOC: The Rocket 1829 Anno Domini

    OK, I think I got how you did the boiler:Tank treads.... Am I right? (this reminds me to post my 2-2-4)
  9. 8097 Slave I mod

    I changed the way the entry is on my Slave I. So a few weeks ago I found one of these Slave I at wallyworld and promptly purchased it. After I assembled it I found to my disappointment I found it was almost impossible to recreate the Cloud City Departure scene from ROTJ. Then I made a few changes... The biggest change so far is the ramp. It now allows minifigs to stand on it. Also the ship can stand upright. See more at my blog!
  10. HMS Venture

    Yes, I have two bbb. I thought that was obvious from the earlier replies. Actually, I bought my second of bricklink with no minifigs.
  11. The A-Z of things to build

    I used to live near Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown, so this period is very familiar to me and building stuff like this is *nostalgic*. Besides it's just fun and different than town and space all the time.

  13. Port Framboise

    Finally I have had the time to take pix of this. The only thing I have changed since the last is adding this wall weathering. Here is a view of the back. And here is a view of the trapdoor that goes directly to jail and does not pass Go. A hapless redcoat patrol about to meet their doom. Facing the enemy.... Click here to view more.
  14. Random Silliness

    Food chain in action. On a far away green sea, a group of pirates sailing o'er the krunkle plants rescue a lone rabbit from the kelp sharks.
  15. WIP "The Big Goodbye"

    I am a Physics major Comp Sci minor with a big emphisis in math, but this was for the core curriculum Theater class. @Big Cam When I am taking the picture, I am trying to get the light to be a soft glow and not be too washed out looking:
