  2. When traveling around the world, it always seems one has to sacrifice style for substance. Not anymore, with the all-new: All-Terrain Saloon Car This attractive model comes complete with an all-leather interior, opening doors, folding windshield and a rack on top for carrying luggage and cargo (or in this case, a cooler filled with sausages). Inside is enough room for one minifigure, along with some trunk area for suitcases or small parcels. The rubber tires can counter the toughest terrains, while the low-slung body allows for achieving the highest speeds possible. On the back, there is more area for carrying accessories, like a frying pan for camp cooking and a red tail-lantern so cars can't crash into you on the highway. And there we have it, folks: a car that combines both style and substance for a truly enjoyable ride. Pick yours up today and travel the world in style! Feel free to question and comment, and thanks for watching, folks! Always entertaining, always inspiring, always:

    MOC: Europa Castle

    During a bout of cold, I happened to do some expansion on the build, constructing a small farmhouse, field, and a tavern.

    MOC: Europa Castle

    A few years back I did a small vignette based on the cancelled Europa theme; a photo can be seen here. Now, here is most likely the main attraction to the theme: Europa Castle The castle is heavily based off the one in the promotional image, albeit with a few modern flourishes. The castle is guarded by three Royal Guards, dressed in white uniforms with red epaulettes and bicornes. A drawbridge spans a small moat, and edelweiss grow wild by the rocky castle slopes. The back of the castle can be opened up to reveal a detailed interior. The lower floor has two suits of armor standing guard, while the upper floor features the Crown Prince's throne room and a ceremonial sword and bicorne for inspecting the Royal forces. The Crown Prince is accompanied in the throne room by his Princess consort. A bird's-eye view of the castle grounds. In the courtyard are two marble fountains flourished with bubbling waters. A demonstration of the drawbridge. A longer one will be constructed some time in the foreseeable future. That's all for now. In the future, I intend to construct more buildings related to the theme, along with soldiers and hopefully the Europa State Railway. In the mean time, feel free to comment and reply. Always entertaining, always inspiring, always:

    MOC: NWR No. 1 "Thomas"

    Thanks for the complement. To answer your question, I'm using black wheels since they're the only set I have at the moment due to budgetary constraints. Currently they're being shared between Thomas and another loco I have.

    MOC: NWR No. 1 "Thomas"

    Well, I currently don't have the funds for stickers or decals at the moment, so that will have to wait. I've seen examples of faces being fit to Lego models of Thomas engines before, and I find the results rather jarring. Thus, I'll probably have the model displayed a la Rev W. Awdry: engine w/o face. Thanks for the notice. I'll give it a shot!

    MOC: NWR No. 1 "Thomas"

    Back again, this time with one of the most beloved steam engines in all the world, re-made in Lego form. Thomas the Tank Engine Thomas, as he appears in the Railway Series books by the Reverend Wilbert Awdry, is a London, Brighton & South Coast Railway E2 Class Tank locomotive, with extended side tanks for holding extra water. As described in the story "Thomas and Gordon", the engine has "...six small wheels, a short stumpy funnel, a short stumpy boiler, and a short stumpy dome." Thomas served as a station pilot for Knapford station, but was given his own branch line to run between Ffarquhar and Knapford after saving the new engine James from an accident in a field. Thomas enjoys running on the branch line, along with his coaches Annie and Clarabel. Here is the Lego model next to the real-life E2 Class tank engine. The E2s had terrible fuel consumption, so were often stuck in station pilot jobs. According to steam locomotive enthusiast Chris Eden-Green, Thomas did to the E2s what Back to the Future did to the DeLorean. My model combines aspects from both the real-life E2 and the illustrations in the Railway Series. There are downsweeps for the buffer beams on both ends of the engine, along with a wheel arch at the front end of the water tank. The wheels are from Big Ben Bricks, while the side rods were purchased from a specialty shop on Bricklink. Birds-eye view, showing the red stripes on the boiler. Thomas' two coaches, Annie and Clarabel, are based more off their TV series counterparts than the Railway Series counterparts, mostly due to budgetary constraints. Annie can only take passengers, while Clarabel can take passengers, luggage and the guard (conductor). Clarabel also has extended side windows to give the guard a better view of the line. Both coaches rely very heavily on SNOT techniques, with alternating directions for windows and bottom sides. They're rather an attractive build I am very proud of, and they add a whole lot to Thomas, making him look like a very busy - yet Really Useful - tank engine. That is about it. I hope you enjoy the build, and any comments or questions are most welcome. Thanks for viewing! Always entertaining, always inspiring, always:

    MOC: Vintage Town Vehicles

    Being off school for the summer leaves a lot of free time on one's hands, along with a load of Lego bricks at one's disposal. Coming straight from this load of bricks: Vintage Town Vehicles Each of these vehicles is made using old-school techniques with whatever parts I happened to have at the moment. Most are based off old-fashioned vehicles in order to fit in with my pre-1980s town aesthetic. 1900's Oldsmobile Runabout This little car is built on a basic 4x7 chassis with small wheels and an area in the back to store a briefcase. The driver is dressed in 1890's-1900's style clothing, complete with deerstalker cap. 1910's Rolls Royce 40/50 This smart-looking red car is for use of a select few nobility, with a folded-up hood made from 1x3 slope bricks in case of rain. 1920's Ford Delivery Truck This delivery truck uses some interesting building methods. For example, the headlights are made from grey socket wrenches, the back door is made with window shutters, and the mirrors are simply 1x1 clips attached to a 1x4 wheel axle. Inside, there is room for even a 3x4 crate. 1920's Ford "Tin Lizzie" This car uses some techniques from the old Adventurers sets, along with new parts from modern Lego sets. The convertible hood is made using old-fashioned hinges, with Ninjago nunchuck handles and Technic pins to hold up the roof. 1950's Motor Coach Based off the Bedford OB Coach used in the film The Titfield Thunderbolt, this model has a red-and-blue livery, with luggage rack on the roof and enough room for two minifigs plus a driver. 1980's Ford Transit Post Van This van is built on a 2x8 sloped wheel chassis, with window shutters again being used as back doors. The back has enough room for letters or packages, but still no room for Jess... 1970's Milk Float This milk float was a very difficult build, but got pulled off nonetheless. Inside is enough room for twelve bottles of milk, whether red-cap, yellow-cap, or cream. 1990's COE Repair Pickup Truck Based off the truck from set 4561 Railway Express, this truck has a pickup bed in the back, with clips for attaching a wrench and hammer (the latter for when a job doesn't go according to plan). They're charming vehicles, to say the least, paying a large homage to the vehicles of yesteryear. Feel free to comment below or ask questions about the builds. Always entertaining, always inspiring, always:

    Lego Napoleonic British and French Armies

    I'm hoping in the future (should the funds exist) to make some American soldiers from the War of 1812, but now have very little resources.
  11. Rather nice to be back in the Pirate forums, especially since I have new creations to share: British Army: Infantry (Regular Infantry and Rifle Brigade) The regular infantry is dressed in 2009 Pirates soldier uniforms with grey trousers and knapsacks, in a style reminiscent of the older Royal Regiments (Guards, Royal Fusiliers, &c). The sergeant (left-most) carries a regulation pike. The Rifle Brigade wears the constable torso from CMF Series 11, along with light grey trousers, brown epaulettes, knapsacks, and a plain black shako. Black muskets are used to represent the 1809 pattern Baker Rifles. Royal Artillery Pictured here is the Royal Artillery with a 12-pounder cannon. The uniform consists of white trousers with the cavalry torso from the Lone Ranger theme, red epaulettes, and a plain black shako. Cavalry (1st Dragoons) The 1st Dragoons were a unit of heavy cavalry, here dressed in grey-blue trousers, Classic Imperial Guards torso (gold-edged, like the Household Cavalry), blue epaulettes (representing the usual blue collar and cuffs), and bicorne. Each is armed with a straight-blade sword and carbine mounted on the saddle. Regimental Band The Regimental Band wears reverse colors in respect to their regiment. These band members wear grey trousers, Imperial Soldier torsos, white epaulettes, and 2009 Pirate shakos. British Officers (l to r: Ensign, Infantry colonel, Rifle major, Artillery captain) Last but not least are the officers. Both the Ensign and Colonel wear the POTC Royal Guard torso with bicorne, but the ensign dons blue epaulettes while the colonel wears gold. The Rifle major wears the classic Captain Redbeard torso with dark green trousers, black epaulettes, and plain shako. The Artillery captain wears white trousers with the POTC Captain Barbossa torso, gold epaulettes, and bicorne. The flag carried by the Ensign is the King's Colours for the King's German Legion. French Army: Line Infantry Here the Line Infantry is positioned in a usual French column (albeit a fraction of the actual size). The soldiers wear the 2015 Pirates uniform, with red epaulettes and plain black shako. In the rear is the Imperial Eagle bearing the flag of the 55th Line Infantry Regiment (took part in the siege of La Haye Sainte). Voltigeurs The Voltigeurs were units of light infantry that took part in skirmishes. Here the soldiers wear blue trousers, 2015 Imperial soldier torsos, yellow epaulettes, knapsacks, and plain black shakos. Here they are standing in skirmish order. French Officers (l to r: Brigadier-General, Line Infantry Colonel, Voltigeur Captain) Last but not least are the valiant officers of the French Army. The Brigadier-General, high upon his horse, is dressed as the 2009 Admiral, except with white gloves. He carries a saber and keeps a pistol mounted on his saddle. The Line Infantry Colonel wears the 2015 Admiral's uniform, with red epaulettes and decorative shako. Lastly, the Voltigeur Captain wears white trousers with the POTC Barbossa torso, yellow epaulettes, and a black bicorne. That about wraps up all there is to see. Feel free to post any comments or questions. In the mean time, seeya! Always entertaining, always inspiring, always:

    MOC: BR 60103 Class A3 Flying Scotsman

    To be honest, I put it in without a second thought, and used any gears I had on hand (namely, 1x 76019, 1x 4019, 1x 32270, 2x 6589). Still, there's not too much of a push-me pull-you issue.
  14. Long time since I last posted on Eurobricks (University sure takes it out of you). Last Winter I finished a new MOC for display at my local LUG, and here it is making its premiere on the Eurobricks forums: British Railways 60103 (formerly LNER 4472) A3 Class Flying Scotsman Most of the model is built with parts from set 10194 Emerald Night, with a few minor additions for purely aesthetic reasons. The entire locomotive is seven studs wide and adapted to run on 9V track. In addition to the 9V train motor in the tender, a separate motor powers the locomotive, connected to the tender 9V motor. She is as troublesome as the real Scotsman, but runs like a dream when given the proper care and attention. Front view of locomotive. Locomotive side view. Tender side view, with 9V motor underneath. Tender rear view, with corridor and porthole for light Tender top view. View in locomotive cab, with modified 10194 firebox, gauges, and regulator. Inside the firebox, with a view of the motor powering the locomotive. Rear view from the windows of a pullman carriage. Feel free to post any comments or questions, and thanks for viewing!
