  1. Motorization question

    I starting building a prototype of the motorization yesterday when the motor's arrived. I will test it on track tonight! I have built two of the four carriages as well so can test how it works pulling those. I tried putting rubber bands identical to the ones from Emerald Night on the BigBen Brick wheel, but they keep popping off. Any idea on how to fix?
  2. Motorization question

    Here is an update, so @Duq this was your idea? It seems really tight and nice, and it seems I can fit it in! Here is an overall sketch of the train set, gathering parts for the carriages right now.
  3. Motorization question

    Thank you so much guys for all these wonderful tips! @Duq I actually saw that gearing example on flickr by @Selander yesterday and planned on looking closer on it to see If I could use it. Will post updates when I have tested more. Your help is greatly appreciated!
  4. Motorization question

    Thanks for all your input. I will go back to the drawing board and see what I manage to improve. zephyr1934: I need the offset to match the driving rods I bought from your Bricklink-store. Great parts btw :)
  5. Motorization question

    Thanks for clarification and nice tips. I updated the model now: Skjermbilde 2018-04-01 kl. 06.46.15 by Henrik Lorentzen, on Flickr As seen in this image I plan on using another motor on the first driving wheels: Skjermbilde 2018-04-01 kl. 06.57.12 by Henrik Lorentzen, on Flickr
  6. Motorization question

    If anyone can help me out, will this work? Motorization by Henrik Lorentzen, on Flickr I am working on a large steam engine now and trying to find a way to motorize it. Do you think this will work, will add some more support to the technic cross axles, but the gearing? L-motor. I plan on putting another L-motor using the same technique on of the other wheels. But I want to check with some experts before I test this on a real build.
  7. Homemade Road Plates

    These road-plates look great, and seems like a perfect way of building roads without purchasing those expensive lego baseplates. And this looks much better. I understand that you do not want to use the printer available at work to print and sell plates on demand, but if there would be any way of buying the designs from you and using a online print-on-demand service or something like that I think a lot of people would be really interested. Myself included. There has to be some kind of service out there that lets you as the creator upload designs and sell on demand. I am just thinking out loud, but that would be amazing!
  8. [MOC] Type 33.01 4-6-4 locomotive

    This looks amazing! There is a lot to digest here, and I might have several questions later, but one pops up right away: How did you do those stickers? I meen the printing/cutting of them. Edit: Ah, I understand now... It's 3D!
  9. Are there anyone who has created a TIE Fighter at about the same scale as the UCS Millennium Falcon? If my calculations are correct the UCS Millennium Falcon is about 1:40 scale, while the 75101 First Order TIE is 1:31,5. The UCS TIE (75095) is about 1:20. So the TIE Moc should then be about 15,75 cm long (back to front on wing) to be 1:40 in scale. I am asking because I am going to build a layout with TIE Fighters together with the UCS Millennium Falcon, and if anyone has done this before it would be great to get some inspiration before I start.
  10. I have tried this out a bit on mac now and really like the way to set up steps from an LXF-file. Brilliant. But is there a way to export high-res, transparent images of the steps themselves? I want to create the instructions using Adobe InDesign, and I can't find a way to export high-res pictures of the step.
  11. [MOC] BB-9E

    Thanks, I haven't fully decided on how yet, but I will make instructions for this. Probably more high quality than last time, and I am taking pre-orders on full kits (more info).
  12. [MOC] BB-9E

    It's been about two years since I made the BB-8 model (large and small version), now I've made a small version of BB-9, and then time will show if I make a large version of this as well. Here are some pictures: There are some more pictures on my Flickr-account (and better resolution). I hope you like it.
  13. This was not the case in the full box I bought. I opened them all up, and found no system in the way they was stored in the box.
  14. [MOC] Boba Fett buildable figure

    Thanks to the both of you, and yes, I agree that the proportions are a bit off with the body and the head. Right now my mind need a bit of time away from the model, but I will look into this in the future and remember your ideas for improvement. Thanks!
  15. Earlier this year Jeremy Bulloch, who played Boba Fett, visited my hometown Fredrikstad (Norway) for a sci-fi festival. I found out I wanted to build a model of Boba Fett and show it to him when he got here. Unfortunately I underestimated the task so the model wasn't 100% complete when he was here (and not at all stable!). But I brought the model anyway and showed it to him (I even got the stand signed!). Here are two photos from that day: Bulloch was really nice and the cinema manager wanted to send him a copy of the model once it was complete. Talk about giving a Lego-builder performance anxiety! I got back home and decided to redesign the structure of the whole model. I got a lot of inspiration looking at other builders way of solving figures like this. Finally, after a few months of testing and trying (hey, I got two small kids), I feel done! Here are some pictures of the completed model: The model is now packed carefully down and will be shipped to mr. Bulloch next week. I can't wait to hear what he thinks of it. My own copy (with the signed stand) will stay in my shelf together with my BB-8, which is the same scale:
