Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Action and Adventure ThemesThe following models are inspired by these sets: 3829 - Fire Nation ship (battle cruiser), 7620 - Indiana Jones motorcycle chase (motorcycle and sidecar), 7622 - Race for the stolen treasure, (troop truck and commander's car) 7626 - Jungle Cutter (Jungle cutter) and 7683 - Fight on the Flying Wing (tanker truck). This Adventurers-style ship happens to be based off set 3829, Fire Nation Ship from a decade ago. (2006) The ship is 85 studs long, while being made to be 20 bricks in height and 16 studs in width. The ship is modular, with the roof and bridge removable from the war room and each other. The bow, or front, of the ship is tapered to a point much like on my 1920's Tramp Steamship. while the stern (or rear) is pretty flat. The name "Vladek" should go on the exposed studs back of the ship, as that's the vessel's name. The vessel features two funnels and room in the lower level for the war room, complete with a large map table. The upper floor features the wheel and a nautical telegraph. The ship has three turrets with three barrels each that can elevate up and down or rotate left to right. This diesel tanker is a almost a stock set 7638 (Fight on the Flying Wing) model, but with some minor front-end upgrades and better color choices. The vehicle can seat two figures inside under the removable roof. I bought the original set 7626 (Jungle cutter) in Summer 2008. I wanted to make it it in dark gray to match my two trucks but gave up after trying to order the parts from Lego. (I didn't know about Bricklink at that time) Well, now the shoe is on other other foot and here it is, in full grayish glory! The jungle cutter can seat one figure at the controls. The commander's car was inspired by a table-scrap jeep my brother gave to me. I turned the modern jeep into the car seen above with help from parts of set 7622, Race for the Stolen Treasure. This car can fit one figure in the drivers seat. The little motorcycle and sidecar seen here is inspired by set 7620, Indiana Jones Motorcycle chase. These troop trucks are made from 7622, Race for the Stolen Treasure. Since the fabric part is so VERY expensive, I found a solution in the Eurobricks Official sets LDD topic. I took the cover from the trucks built by user ADHO15 and redid some portions to be cheaper (I.E. thinner tires) and better coordinated color-wise. Each of the two vehicles can seat two figures inside under the removable roof sections. When Indiana Jones set 7683 (Fight on the Flying Wing) pictures was first leaked in dark grays, I was impressed... but then they went and changed it to dark green in the final, released version. Well, now I changed it back! I removed the unavailable parts, turned the regular green and dark green to light and Dark bluish gray. The cockpit is no longer hinged, making it much stronger, plus the rear guns no longer swivel, eliminating that weak point. The rear of the plane, with the two pusher prop blades and gun turret. This plane can seat two figures, with one in the pilots seat and one in the gun turret. This set is a modified version of set 7198 (Fighter plane Attack) from the Indiana Jones theme. I enclosed the cockpits and removed the wings-fall-off feature to make this into a regular fighter again. The rear of the plane, which can seat two mini-figures, as one pilot and one navigator. This set is a modified and militarized version of set 7628 (Peril in Peru) from the Indiana Jones theme. I took out the fancy yellow, dark blue, and white color scheme and gave the plane instead both dark and light bluish grays plus a black stripe with trans-black windows. The rear of the aircraft. The plane seats five figures, which you can place after the roof is removed. (the roof section is only held on by a half-dozen studs) The forces of Ogel will stop at nothing to get their prize, and with help from Lord Sam Sinister, they just might win! Here is all my Sinister forces of evil as they are right now. Nothing will stop them on their quest! (expect maybe Johnny Thunder and company) Here are the planes as they are in LDD. (These will be built somewhat soon to add to my fleet.) Please see this topic here for the object of the search and the evil alliance with Lord Sam Sinister!
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Action and Adventure ThemesThis is a seaplane based off the 2008 Indiana Jones set 7628 (Peril In Peru), along with inspiration from 2000 Adventurers set 5935 (Island Hopper) thrown in for good measure. The idea behind this model is to depict a updated version of one of my favorite classic LEGO themes: "Adventurers". Anyway, this model has a story: Built in 1920 by Seaplane Solutions Incorporated for Aero-Sea Cargo Limited, a trans-Mediterranean shipping service headquartered in Alexandria, Egypt. Eventually, the main pilot (Harry Cane) realized what his usual cargo was: stolen Ancient Egyptian artifacts and sometimes even whole mummies in shipping crates. Knowing the Authorities would do nothing unless proof was given as to what was happening, Harry decided to fly his plane straight to the police with a stolen mummy inside. Needless to say, the police took the plane and the mummy and shut down Aero-Sea Cargo Limited. They tried to arrest the hook-handed owner, but he had fled the country. For his bravery, Harry got to keep the plane, and made a new friend: Johnny Thunder who was near the police station at the time of the arrests, looking for clues to a certain Ruby. Johnny went up to Mr. Cane and congratulated him, whereupon they became fast friends. The plane was not used in the search for the Re-Gou Ruby, but was used in the Dino Island fiasco in 1923, when it was piloted by journalist & accomplished pilot Pippin Reed, who latter went to work with Harry Cane and the Adventurers. The plane has a interior that seats eight people: 1 pilot and seven passengers, and the roof / wings can come off to seat mini-figures inside, as seen here. The rear of the plane makes use of a Toy Story 3 printed 2 x 4 tile for a registration number. Miss Pippin Reed (pilot) This former lead reporter for Adventurer Times was reporting on a Dr. Kilroy's 1920 discovery of a copy of the Book of the Dead when she met Johnny Thunder at a dig site near Cairo, Egypt. They have been good friends ever since, even though Ms. Reed happens to be an better aviator than Johnny. She currently is employed by Harry Cane as one of his best pilots. She usually files the Island Hopper on cargo runs in the Europe and Africa, but has known to take the plane as far away as the Pacific Ocean / Dino Island. Builders Notes: The 2008 Indiana Jones set features a DC-3 airplane and was set in 1957 (The year of Crystal Skull's plot). The colors were wrong for the Island Hopper, not to mention the design was wrong for a seaplane and the date was 30+ years after Johnny Thunder was around. (Here is the Brick-Link link for this set: http://www.bricklink...em.asp?S=7628-1 ) This is the original Island Hopper from 2000. (Brick-Link: http://www.bricklink...em.asp?S=5935-1 ) It was sorely out of date, and used "illegal" techniques for it's engine design. Seeing as both planes were out of date and had their fair share of bad points, I combined the two bad planes into one good one. I added a new tail to the DC-3, and redid the roof / windows. I then added a higher wing mount to it and put floats on the wings. The cockpit had to go, and seeing a better option in using new parts to achieve the same effect as the 5935 set's nose. This part solves the nose problem while keeping a nice vintage profile when combined with this part. EDIT 10/30/16: Added real life pictures of the completed model. I hope you all like them! EDIT 3/1/18: added newer real life pictures with the slimmed-down and more colorful version ,as seen in the newest pictures. Comments, Questions, and Complaints welcome!
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Action and Adventure Themes(I have put the older pictures of the previous model in the spoiler tag below. This way, you can compare the models of the building and car.) This Adventurers model was inspired by my original Johnny Thunder office building from 2015. I modified it into a corner building with a tower like in set 10255 (assembly square).The building is modular, and comes apart into three sections: roof, second floor and main floor. This model is my actually second tallest creation, as it's shorter than Sam Sinister's Mansion and only slightly taller than my Saloon. Here you can see Johnny Thunder and his car (the aptly-named "Treasure Raider") outside the building. The rear of the building is blank, as it it would be sandwiched next to other buildings. The vent on the roof leads from the stove on the second floor. The lower floor features a cabinet from set 10228 (Haunted House) and a 1920's style ivory phone borrowed from set 10218 (Pet Shop). A hat rack (also from the Pet Shop set) is next to the wall opposite the desk. The far wall features some treasure from Johnny and his friends many adventurers, such as the Golden Shield from "Orient Expedition", a T-Rex tooth from "Dino Island", a trident from the "Quest for Atlantis", the replica hammer of the Thunder god from the "Age of Ragnarok", the helmet of a dwarf from "Middle Zealand", and many others artifacts. The upper floor features Johnny's bed, a stove, table with root beer bottle, and a radio / record player. This model was inspired by the tan car in set 7628 (Shanghai Chase) from the Indiana Jones them. The car now features a hard-top roof instead of the original fabric one, with one section of the roof being removable to allow for two figures to be seated inside plus a rear-mounted spare tire. The model also has a rear-mounted spare tire, located right next to the taillights. The inside of the car seats two figures side-by-side. 3/4/17 Major update complete: I added new pictures of the updated house and car, plus i put the older models into a spoiler tag for you to compare between old and new. Comments, Questions and Complaints are always welcome!
Built by Douglas Aircraft Company in 1938, this airplane was built for Pan American-Grace Airways. (also known as Panagra) It was used there until 1967, where upon it was sold while Panagra was being merged with Braniff International Airways. The plane was eventually donated to the Imperial Rail Museum, which was then renamed the Imperial Transportation Museum. In reality, this is a heavily modified version of set #7628, Peril in Peru. I have removed all the sticker-windows and replaced them with brick built portholes, at the expense of removing almost all mini figure seating. (Except for the one cockpit seat, of course!) The history I wrote for this plane is based in fact. Panagra did exist, and was merged with Braniff International Airways in 1967. Panagra also used DC-3's and their successor craft until the jet age caught up with the company in the mid 1960's. link to Panagra wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panagra The Imperial Transportation Museum is semi-fictional, as it is based on the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, Missouri. That St. Louis institution even has a US military version of a DC-3 (called a C-47 Skytrain) on display near the old front gate. Original LEGO.com view of limited edition set #7628, Peril in Peru, of which I own a copy. (picture from Bricklink) The set uses Panagra colors and name, so I did the same with my MOD.
