BuzzBrix0nEuroBrix posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesHello. This forum is about classic car MOC builds and custom classic car MOC builds. Basically any car from the 90's and below can be on this forum. You can put your classic or custom classic car MOCs here on this forum too. And you can talk about classic cars. This forum is made to inspire classic car fans all around the LEGO space. And here are the things I would like to ask you to do. Do not bully or use profanity. And please do not be hesitant to report profanity. Please be nice to beginner builders who put there builds here. This is my first time creating a forum so if I mess something up or if you have any suggestions on what can improve this forum just let me know.
Hi all! After the projects, it was time for some real building. I am in "12v phase" so I concentrated on the BR50 I draw during Christmas Holidays: Since there are many expensive parts, I used what I already had at home. I ordered the two front 1x1x2 windows and a pair of big wheels. Here's the final result: It is similar to che project, but it's quite different in some parts: - Front bogie was redesigned completely - while perfectly working from turning radius point of view, its overhang made the locomotive to hit the 12v switch remote control! Now the lower part is turning according to bogie, the buffer turns too. - Chassis is higher, in order to accomodate some details (by the way, the BR50 had small wheels so I needed to increase the space between the wheels and the body. - Flexible Pneumatic tubes instead of black "antennas" to reproduce side pipes (I found this solution more...7777-ish) - Cabin is half stud lower and has a longer roof to cover part of Tender. - Some details are different, and were thought directly "on the run" - Tender is a bit longer, the one I designed was wrongly shaped. Bogies worked fine with the central ladder, but I did not remember the motor has rubber bands on it (and they get stuck on the ladders). - The connection between the thender and the locomotive is using a very very vintage part from the 60s - 12v Motor is now in the rear part of the Tender, since the unpowered bogie was easier to modify in order to accomodate the fixed bar coupling. ...and now some photos: In general, it was built thanks to some incomplete spare sets: a 7715 (doors, two red buffers, boiler parts and some wheels) , a 7810 (two windows, red ladders and black parts) and a 7710 (black parts, some plates...). It was a real fun to build it!!! I hope you like it!!! Ciao! Davide
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who this month, I decided to do some purist (well, other than 10's jacket) customs of the 10th and 11th doctors . Check out my FLICKR photostream for more photos!
