five vintage 1980's - 2000's Lego train building MOC's
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Train TechThe following five models were originally built by my dad without the aid of Bricklink as it didn't exist yet. Only sets bought in stores or parts packs ordered from LEGO directly were used. (at least at first!) Some of these pictures are also quite old, so please bear with me on them. This old gray tunnel was built in the early 1990's. (I added the tan baseplate and RC tracks when I received it from him as a present.) This grain elevator model was around 1999 / 2000. Like most of his MOCs from that time, he built it before he had a BrickLink account. With this one he never finished it 100%, probably due to having us kids (including me) tearing it down and scattering parts every other weekend while he fixed it during the week. Eventually, he put them up out of reach except for special occasions such as the two weeks bracketing Christmas. This vintage model has been used by our family for layouts at his house at Christmas and other times for a long while, throughout most of my childhood up to 2012 or so when we stopped doing a tree + floor layout. These two finger-hinged doors hold the grain back until it is needed to be loaded. He eventually gifted this model to me about in 2021 because he built the Brick Train Depot version and it is better / bigger by like double in size. I added the conveyor belt and tan baseplates for the bottom, as it fits with the rest of my buildings better. This double track train shed was built before I was even born, in 1989. It was originally single track and used parts using quite a few copies of set 6380 (Emergency Treatment Center) from 1987. The rear of the shed. Around 2003, he rediscovered the model and decided to add a second stall to the engine shed, which he did (using a rather new website called Bricklink) He even added brick built re-railers to in-between the rails. The girder bridge was built in the mid -'90's and features the base-plate from set 6552 (Rocky Retreat) from 1993. The guard rails were added in the mid-2000's. This factory was constructed around the years 2001 - 2004 with parts from several Sand Red supplemental packs available at that time. It does not feature any interior, nor does it have a removable roof. But this thing is built STRONG: you have to really put your weight on it to press the roof together. It has never been determined what this factory made in-universe, though for my own purposes, I pretended it made beverages. What beverages, you ask? Why, Leg O. Brick's Root Beer of course! Thoughts on these five older MOC's?

Ice planet - how do I create fake snow and ice?
absolutelylez posted a topic in LEGO Sci-FiHello, I wanted to ask whether anyone has ever attempted recreating the classic images from the Lego catalogues in the early 90s, in real life. I'm really getting into post-classic (?) Space such as Ice Planet and Blacktron II, and would really like to recreate the snow and ice, especially the ice-frozen Blacktron guy as shown here, but obviously out of something that won't melt !!!!. Has anyone got experience or links to ideas on how to recreate the snow and ice in this picture? Thanks
