  1. A good friend of mine inspired me to build this loco after showing me a hover train from a TV show he watches. I changed it to reddish brown and then ran with the idea from futuristic hover mono-rail to 1930's streamlined Mountain-type steam loco. Other than the hover train from Legend of Korra, this model is not based on any specific prototype, though it bears resemblance to the South Australian Railway 520 class 4-8-4, and the Pennsylvania Railroad T1 Duplex type. This 4-8-2 steam locomotive is actually mostly already built in real life from a disused streamlined model I have lying around, all I have to do is fix the tender and build the cars, since the original cars I had for the engine are being reassigned. The tender is supposed to have "WANDER LINES" as the railway name in printed 1 x 1 tiles and 6847 on the engine's cab walls... but these printed parts are sadly not in LDD. The Combination baggage and passenger car, which I call an "express baggage", though it is actually called a combine in real railroad slang. These three identical coaches were practically copied from my dark green Emerald Express train-set models, but are remade in brown, black, and tan to match the steam engine. This observation car features a rounded rear end, in a stylized homage to the Santa Fe Super Chief series of sets. Comments, Questions, and complaints welcome!
  2. Hello all! I haven't posted here in awhile, been busy with RL stuff and such, but here is my latest build! http://www.flickr.com/photos/95309146@N06/43063365835/in/dateposted/ The 1930 Rolls Royce Condor AV; The Armoured car for the discerning Gentleman """"""""""""""""""""""""""""""" Adventuring to the wilds of Africa? Trying to get to your next rally without being assassinated? Hunting lost Spanish treasures in Mesoamerica? Passing through the riot-torn streets of the Weimar Republic? Searching for ancient artifacts among the dunes of Egypt? Than the Condor is the vehicle for you! Equipped with our vaunted V-8, The Condor features a reinforced cabin, with four inch armour-plating all around, custom steel bumpers, strengthened wheel-rims, and a one-man turret, all on our supremely popular Condor limousine chassis! Boasting a 360 degree field of fire, the cabin turret has two inches of steel armour, a gunner's hatch, and is equipped with a Browning .50 caliber machine gun. Best of all, the Condor still seats four, just like the base model! If you need to be protected while on the move, but still want to catch the eye, then this vehicle is for you!* *(Available only at select Rolls Royce dealers) """"""""""""""""""""""""""""""" So, I have no idea how this came to be. I guess you can blame ZZ Top, since I was listening to Sharp Dressed Man, and thought, 'man, one of those fancy 20s cars would look so cool with a turret on top, drifting around a corner while shooting.' Fast forward an hour and I have this in front of me. Go figure. I am pretty happy with how the bodywork came out though, the fenders and hood really seemed to flow nicely together. At some point the Condor will be featured in a Johnny Thunder MOC, as Lord Sam Sinister's car. Anyway, hope you all like it! Oh, and yes, I stickered one of those rare folding windshields. >:D

    MOC: The Brixton Hotel

    Hello EB members and all! I put together a quick build (Quick for me - 1 month!) whilst I was waiting for a delivery for another project and got pretty into this 1930's Art-Deco themed hotel MOC. I very much enjoy doing interiors and this was a good excuse to have a go at some new SNOT techniques - for me. The new rounded tiles were a great alternative to an otherwise straight patterned floor. It was also fun to go with some darker colours for a change, although I found them very difficult to photograph with all the reflections. Shout out to @timmyc1983 - I stole the name for the hotel after your town layout, I suppose every town needs a hotel though! Thanks again! Anyway on with the pics, all 3 of them; You can view them at Flickr here if you prefer: https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Comments, questions about techniques etc all welcome! Cheers!
  4. The all-new Daimler-Benz Navigator, Convertible Truck: --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Navigator, the newest off-road automobile from Daimler-Benz, is the vehicle of choice for the rugged outdoorsman, the stubborn explorer, the far-flung military unit, or the discerning traveler. Coming in Convertible or Hardtop Truck, and Convertible or Hardtop Sedan, the Navigator is equipped with a flat-cylinder V8, all-weather leather seats, removable soft top in the convertibles, ample rear trunk space, a reinforced steel bedrack for holding tools, and locking 4-wheel drive. A steel tow hitch at the back ensures that whatever won't fit in the trunk, you can pull behind you! The Navigator comes in Temple Gray, Sahara Tan, Jungle Green, and Atlantis Blue. This is the rough-and-tumble automobile for all your exploration needs, so pick one up today!** *Available at select Benz dealers in Europe, North America, and Asia. http://www.flickr.com/photos/95309146@N06/27912533148/in/dateposted/ The Navigator model features working steering, opening doors, folding windshield and removable top, plus it seats two minifigs, albeit uncomfortably. I wanted to include suspension and opening hood, but ran out of time and space. :( http://www.flickr.com/photos/95309146@N06/41063623314/in/photostream/ *Promotional images used with permission of Colonel Jacque DeAthos. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hope you all like it, and may the best Adventurer win! :D
  5. Hello fellow EB members; My latest MOC is called Astrid and Associates Architecture firm. This building is the new head office for the firm as a showcase of the firms abilities! It's taken quite a while to build as I've struggled to find the right direction to take the building. After finding the right proportions to using the large arch pieces surrounding the windows on the ground floor the rest of the building took shape from there. I wanted a good mix of colour and texture, using inspiration from 1920's/1930's buildings with perhaps a touch of middle eastern influence. The interior is modern as I wanted to do something different from one of my many older themed buildings and timelines. Anyway on with the pics, 8 in all; You can also find them here on my flickr page if you prefer and it bigger sizes. https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Comments and questions welcome! Cheers

    MOC: Grand Prix Auto Services

    Hello everyone! My latest build is finally complete after taking up most of my desk space for the last few months. It's called Grand Prix Auto Services. A Gas station/Garage which is of a streamlined style from around the 1930's/1940's USA. I struggled to build a car from that time with what bricks I have so went for a more late 50's look with the car and scooter. I've seen some great examples by fellow EB members L@GO and ER0L but felt with so many varied styles out there and not too many versions in Lego there was room for one more! Mostly I wanted to use some of the curved window pieces I had purchased some time ago and this was the perfect opportunity. Most of the model is built sideways with only a little vertical building in places. It's therefore a little less stable in certain sections. Anyway, enough waffle and on with the pics; Any feedback,comments or questions welcomed!
  7. This thread is to put for anybody to put their Adventurers, / Pharaoh's Quest / Monster Fighters figures, and generic people of the same time-frame. (1920's / 1930's) They can put any figures of that era, or from books or movies set in that era. The Great Gatsby meets Johnny Thunder at a cafe or maybe Sam Sinister wants to steal the Maltese Falcon, but Beloq (from Indiana Jones) gets it first. Either way, the era between the World Wars works for me. Here is the first bit, which combines all three themes under one banner. (please remember that my cell phone photography skills are near zero, so most of these are off in one way or another.) In the early 1920's, inquisitive minds and hardy souls, both good and evil, scour the corners of the Earth looking for lost civilizations and vast treasures. Some search for their own personal gain, or limitless power, others search for knowledge in a quest to preserve the past for the future. Good or evil they are known as... THE ADVENTURERS From left to right: THE BAD GUYS Senor Palomar Old friend of the Sinister family. He runs a vast South American artifact smuggling ring, as Sam Sinister's second in command. Alexis Sinister Sister of Lord Sam Sinister, evil, loves traps and weapons, secretly wants to turn Johnny Thunder evil. Lord Sam Sinister Arch enemy of Johnny Thunder, thief of lost treasures and great fortunes, plus is a mastermind of evil THE GOOD GUYS Johnny Thunder Australian explorer with a all- around can-do attitude. Always looking forward towards the future, but an eye on preserving the past. Miss Pippin Reed Former journalist, expert pilot, and a great friend to all in need. Jake Raines Hotheaded former pupil of Johnny Thunder's late friend, Dr. Charles Kilroy. Student of almost all sciences, but a firm believer in the supernatural. Major Quentin Steele English army officer turned monster hunter, tracker extraordinaire, and is a crack shot with any gun. CITIZENS OF THE 1920's These figures are not named, and so are located here. Their is one other figure not under any classification, and that is the signature figure of me as a railroad engineer. I am not in the group because I am named, but am not with the Adventurers because I am not in the story-lines of any of the themes listed above. First Imperial Bank employees Left to right: bank manager - teller number 1 - teller number 2 Law Enforcement & City of Ironwood officials Left to right: Sheriff - Mayor - Silver mine owner - town doctor Railroad Workers Left to right: local railroad official - station master - passenger train conductor - steam locomotive fireman Shop Keepers & etc. Left to right: General Store owner - post office master - bar maid OTHER PEOPLE This is where armies and named non - Adventurers go. Army of the Crossed Sabers (The evil country of Ogel's land forces, known as the Army of the Crossed Sabers, which is temporarily commanded by Lord Sam Sinister on board the Battle-cruiser HMS Vladeck.) Left to right: Captain of the HMS Vladeck, Ogel soldiers (x6) Named non-Adventurers Left to right: Madame Blue (the dog), Captain Karloff (owner of Madame Blue and the tramp steamer "Great West"), Murdoch (engineer for Brick Railway Systems on their steam trains) END (SO FAR) I hope everyone liked my list, and feel free to add your own too. Happy Adventuring / Questing / Fighting Monsters!
