  1. [MOC] LEGO KÖF Hohenweststedt

    I love that half-timber technique! The rest isn't bad either ;-)
  2. Lettering (fonts) for German locomotives

    Ah. Hmm. Right. Different label maker... http://www.paperweight.ie/dymo-label-manager-160p-s0946320.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIuo7ek4_Y1gIVx58bCh2yBw7nEAQYBCABEgJcJfD_BwE Maybe I should consider an upgrade. Dear Santa...
  3. Lettering (fonts) for German locomotives

    I have a Dymo label writer, but how do I get that to use the DIN 1451 or Futura font?
  4. Lettering (fonts) for German locomotives

    Thanks Sven! That's very useful. Especially since I'm a few models behind in making stickers... Now I just need to find a way to get white letters printed on transparent stickers.
  5. DB 189 (Siemens ES64F4)

    That's a nice model! It's a pity though that you couldn't get the windscreen and the side at the same angle.

    I looked at the picture before I started reading and thought: hey, that's just like that 12V commuter train from the 80's! Maybe putting it on Jacob's bogies might help getting the carriages closer together.

    Hi @nitramvortimid, You have posted three times sofar and two of those are to advertise your own project on Lego Ideas...
  8. Doubling up the Horizon Express - 5 Car Set

    Welcome, and congratulations on your new addictive and expensive hobby ;-) The only way to avoid the wheel slip issue is to run the two motors off the same IR Receiver output. That may require long extension cables. Two ways of dealing with the polarity issue: 1. Add polarity switch (8869) to change the direction of one motor. 2. Put the second motor under the next carriage so both motors point the same way.

    No offence but questions like these are pointless. As soon as people find out news they can share they'll post it here. People aren't sitting on news waiting for someone else to ask for it. Having said that, you can be fairly certain that there will be a City station next year, a passenger train with a simple oval of track and a more expensive freight train with a little more track. Any other train sets would be welcome but highly unlikely.
  10. That's a very nice model. I agree with Beck that the engineering on the tender is impressive. Those sliding tiles for the pistons are also an interesting (and clever!) solution.
  11. Hi hntrains and welcome to the forum. The topic you just replied to is 6 years old. Replying to old topics when you don't have something new to offer to the discussion is a bit of a nono...
  12. Smaller Steam Locomotive Boilers

    Blokbricks do a nice little loco that uses that part for the boiler: http://www.blokbricks.com/contents/en-us/p199.html
  13. That's a pretty good rate. Can you do me a model of a Danish diesel in 7 wide? @Legoloco1737 Very few builders like to just design a complete model for you. Most builders would be happy to help with specific questions. It would help if you would take a few minutes to check your writing. It doesn't matter if it's not perfect but at least make an effort...
  14. [LDD MOC] Stephenson's Rocket

    That's a nice model. Simple but very effective. Small detail: from what I can see your wheels are not quartered.
  15. Using a 9v battery box

    The not very scientific answer is: not very long ;-)
