This is my first MOC regarding trains. I am a great fan of Japan and its great history of trains and last year I was lucky enough to visit the country. I was astonished seeing and traveling with some of them and especially with the shinkansens! As a LEGO user, I tryied to recreate the Sakura 800 (Tsubame) and I would like your opinion regarding my creation. I tryied to built it as close as possible to its true scale, and the most difficult part was the curved nose. I have made a dummy model of both engines to test its funcionality, but the completed model of the engine is made using stud.io. Update 05.06.21 (The Original Content can be found within the hidden content area, at the bottom of this post) In order to better adjust the nose and the locomotives of the model, I went to 8 studs wide. This, gave me the required width and length in order to better repesent all the difficult curves of the nose. With this scale (8 studs wide), I was able to include interion as well so, I made two wagons as 3rd class, one as 2nd class, and one as 1st class, like the original train. The locomotives, don't have any empty space in within, as they host 2 pf battery boxes, for the two pf motors that each one carries. Below, you will find all the relevant pictures of its current condition.

Currently, I am collecting the required pieces to make it for real. You can find more pictures in my FlickR account. I will be happy to answer any of your questions or comments. In the spoiler that follows, you can find the original post and the previous updates, for comparison.
Berthil posted a topic in LEGO TownModular city park with sakura tree, flower shop, coffee shop, fountain and lots of green to enjoy. The park is the inner part of the Botanical Garden which I will publish later (after three weeks still waiting for TLG Bricks & Pieces). So if you want a Modular glass building with this park inside, it's better to wait for that (picture is in the building instruction).
