  1. To the Bumblebee-Mobile!

    That's cool... if a little bad for the eyes!
  2. Car with lights

    I really like these. I think lighting really adds mood to both vehicles and buildings in a display. If you made brick built roads such as in this moc from RebelRock you could build holes under the vehicles to pass the wires through and hide them. As discussed before, Lego used to make a 9v light and sound system which could come close to your mocs, but not quite. I tried building the smallest vehicle I could with the Lego parts a while back. It looks quite odd because of the constraints of fitting in the battery box etc. but I was quite pleased with the results. This police van has headlights, blue roof lights that flash on and off, a working siren, is completely portable and measures only 4 studs by 12. I certainly couldn't do this for a motorcycle!
  3. Familymobiles

    That's fantastic! I love the trailer with the spare wheel too. Your inspiration has in turn inspired me to come up with my own tiny town car. It oddly comes out at the same price in Lego Factory as my basic car, but people who only do short trips in town might prefer it as it's more economical, easier to park and it has about three times the luggage space! Obviously it owes quite a bit to the SMART car, and others like the Toyota Aygo which gave me the idea of just having a glass panel for the hatchback. As usual you can download/order this in three different colours from my Lego Factory Gallery. You will need to replace the brick sides with doors (you have them) on the blue and yellow version.
  4. RAMM Falke utility helicopter

    Another excellent moc Chuck, compact and packed full with detail and innovative building techniques. I've long been an admirer of your RAMM series of Military mocs, and I really should have posted before now and said so. Sorry! Great ideas and a unified colour scheme make RAMM stand out from the others, with designs that seem very close to real military vehicles. I even love your troops, such a simple idea pairing a clone trooper torso with that "criminal" hat, and it looks so effective. I wouldn't want to have to fight those troops with that body armour! I'm curious... does RAMM stand for anything?
  5. Great review VBBN! Minifig car doors! Lots of other neat pieces! I got this set after I saw your review and the general theme of it inspired me to build this (I used about 10 bricks from this set and a lot of others).
  6. Me! With my Army!

    Nice to see my tanks there as part of your display Dr. S! These pictures have encouraged me to get back into the UK Lego scene and join the Brickish Association, so hopefully I might get to meet some of you guys soon. Ralph's planes and cars are particularly impressive, and I also really like Dr. Sinister's twin barrelled anti-aircraft tank. I admired these models when they were posted earlier on Eurobricks but never commented because sometimes my online time can be a bit sporadic. Kudos to Ralph and Dr. S. and everyone else who took part!
  7. LDD: Cars, Caravans and ...a Dalek?!

    Thanks again for your coments all. Sorry it's taken me so long to respond but I've been away. Here we go... I do! Nice work Salvobrick. Unfortunately you won't be able to get the Dalek from Lego Factory as they have refused my design on the grounds that "it infringes someone else's copyright". If I get the time, I'll post a parts list so that people can build their own. The General Block Corporation are doing so well from their arms sales to neighbouring towns that their market position is far too strong for them to be bought out at the moment. In fact they might soon be in a position to buy out Legoda!
  8. Road Repair Crew

    V-LI-01F My recent purchase of 6187 Road Construction Set has inspired me to make my own road crew. I ended up using... oh, about 10 parts from that set! The excavator is made entirely from the 4915 Mini Construction creator set. The rest is my own design. Enjoy! The Road Repair Crew set out on another job, bringing with them everything they need. Once arrived they unload and cone off the damaged part of the road, setting up temporary traffic lights. Using a jackhammer they break up the damaged part and scoop it into the truck. The truck takes the material back to the depot to be used in other construction work, then it brings back a load of fresh hot bitumen. The crew spreads the bitumen over the hole and roll it flat. The crew can take a break while the new surface sets, then they pack up and are off to the next job!
  9. PaulC joins the Arms Race

    That's fantastic Dr. S! I really like your modifications, especially the front and rear lights. It really reinforces the idea that these compact tanks are designed to patrol city streets, and therefore need to be "street legal". I'm sorry that I got rid of the original .lxf file before you had a chance to download it. If you check out my Lego Factory Galley you'll find that I've put it back up so you can grab a copy if you want. You'll also see there are some new models there too. I've just got back from a holiday in Norfolk where I got the chance to visit The Muckleborough Collection of military vehicles which has given me lots of inspiration! I'll be posting details of these new models soon.
  10. LDD: Cars, Caravans and ...a Dalek?!

    Thanks again all for your kind comments. They're waiting for moderation at Lego.com, so they should appear in a day or two. Maybe, but I'm real busy at the moment (that's the trouble with being an AFOL, real life keeps getting in the way)! It may be one or two weeks before I can do that. Do you mean something like this?
  11. Cars To Fit in Scuderia Truck

    You're right, these cars might fit. And they're only four wide, so you might be able to fit them in side by side and get more in!
  12. 10185 Green Grocer Review

    That is picture is just a whole corner of wrong. My eyeeees, my eyeeeees! :-D Seriously, I hope you and your Greengrocer enjoy your time together, and that Mrs Sinner isn't too mad when she finds out she's been replaced!At these prices, it looks like I won't be getting any of these wonderful sets. :-( I'll just have to content myself with my two beach houses.
  13. LDD: Cars, Caravans and ...a Dalek?!

    Thanks! Bwa Ha Ha Hahahaha! It's all part of my evil scheme for world domination! :-D My advice would be not to spend any money on these cool cars, but instead save it up... because I've got a stonking new APC in the works!!! You may not think MOCs are your strong suit but I really love the stuff you've built, and not many people could come up with something as consistently funny as Grunts.
  14. V-LV-11A TO V-LV-11D I've been playing around with Lego Digital Designer this weekend. However, I like to prototype my creations in real bricks too. Please note: All the creations below have been uploaded to my Lego Factory Gallery and will appear there as soon as they've been moderated. You can download the .lxf files and even order a few copies there if you want. First up, a while back I saw that Calvin had come up with a really simple cheap car design that could be ordered from Lego Factory. It was a great idea and I've tweaked it a little and come up with my own version. It's very similar so I guess you could claim that the General Block Corporation from my town has indulged in a little industial espionage and "borrowed" the design from Legoda Motors in Legoland! :'-( This is a bog standard car that's cheap enough for your regular wage slaves. It has room for one suitcase in the back, and side doors are not even available as an extra-cost option! :-D The car is available in a large range of colours and styles and is designed so that you can populate your town with large variety of vehicles for very little money. The relative prices are something like this: Tan: £3.39 Blue: £3.39 Light Grey: £3.39 Red: £3.42 White: £3.47 Vintage Black Model: £3.62 Rare Yellow Model: £3.74 Modern Dark Grey: £3.87 A deluxe version of the car is available. This has been designed so that you can replace the side panels with doors if you have them. Extra features include: front fender, towing hook, opening hood with powerful 2-cylinder engine :-D , leather seat and room for two suitcases. Here you can see the design similarity of recent products from the General Block Corporation: Of course a towing hook needs something to tow, so I have designed this nifty caravan which is available seperately or together with the deluxe car. Inside is a bed, wash basin, stove and storage space. You will have to add the tap, pot and cups from your own bricks. The two tan cylinders can be placed under the tow bar to prop up the caravan when it's parked. The perfect home away from home! Except when the Daleks invade! Eeeek! :-D My Dalek design is inspired by CaseWindu's excellent design. You will have to add the claw and lightsabre hilt yourself.
  15. Palace and Parliament buildings

    These are really good, and have a very "official" and "presidential" feel to them. They're so heavily built that they also look like they could double as a pair of fortresses if any trouble starts! *wacko*
