  1. A mice got into the house. It liked the CAT5e network cable near the LEGO. It didn't seem to go for the hard ABS pieces. I think soft LEGO flexible tubings could be at risk if left out.
  2. Maybe someone with jaundice would be yellowish in real life. One can always pretend that yellow can be whatever one's imagination desires, assuiming one has an imagination to begin with.
  3. You could tape the lids of those large plastic storage boxes to keep the bugs out. But if you're set on taping the LEGO boxes, that's fine too. It's your stuff. They also make plastic boxes with a gasket to keep air/moisture/dust/bugs out. I use them for storing 3D printer filaments.

    LEGO #21344 - Orient Express

    That's kind of how Union Pacific does it with their Big Boy using an EMD SD70ACe?
  6. Cockroach excrements have a distinct aroma. If you can smell it on your LEGO boxes, then you may have some unwelcomed visitors. Depending on the species of cockroaches you have, they may or may not be able to crawl through tiny gaps in your box flaps. I suppose you could wrap your boxes with plastic food film or cling wrap to protect them.

    LEGO #21344 - Orient Express

    LEGO has mucho money and would make a good target for lawsuits. LEGO recenlty re-molded their Technic Control+ hub to have screws. Now we have to unscrew the case to get to the batteries. Kids will be kids. We had one kid at an event came up, grabbed a large LEGO wheel, and shoved the whole thing in his mouth with his parents watching. We were dumbfounded. Liability insurance seems like a necessity these days for train clubs.

    I think large companies have liability lawyers to nix those product ideas. Small businesses may not have the resources and policies to run things through the legal department first. There is no EULA with LEGO sets that you can't add your own magnetic couplers after purchase.

    MOC: Shell tanker wagon (7813 remake)

    Great job re-imagining it with more recent parts.

    $389.99 CAD for display only. I think part of the fun will be figuring out how to motorize yourself.

    How to sell a large collection?

    Maybe contact a local Korean LEGO User Group (LUG). They may have members who like to buy LEGO in bulk. The easy everything must go way is to price it by the kilogram, have them come and pick it up. You don't get as much for it as compared to sorting it out into sets and pricing each accordingly.

    Looks pretty good with the Crocodile. Yes, the PU Technic XL motor. It was used in some Technic sets like the Volvo Hauler. https://brickset.com/sets/88014-1/Technic-XL-Motor

    Nice. How did you do the contacts from the PF socket to the Dupont connectors?

    Any tips on 3D printing train parts?

    You can find files on places like Thingiverse.com. Search on LEGO train. Every printer and plastic filament is a bit different. It'll take some trial and error to find the best settings for your slicer. Happy printing.
  15. The cells could be worn and don't have the same mAh as when new. Or they could be out of balance. Fully charged 2S battery should be at 8.4 volts.
