  2. Another go with a WW2 action scene. Here is a small vignette showcasing a German Nebelwerfer in action, probably on the East front. Nebelwerfer 41 in action by Veynom, on Flickr Nebelwerfer 41 in action by Veynom, on Flickr The model is mostly based on the BrickMania design, except for the wheels and ammunitions. The Nebelwerfer - literally "smoke launcher" - was originally designed as a rocket launcher with a name purposely chosen to deceive its true nature. Rocket researches in Germany started during the 1920s and were fruitful in the late 30s. The "Nebelwerfer" name was used to go around the restrictions from the Versailles treaty preventing Germany to develop and produce weapons. In reality, the Nebelwerfer could launch smoke, of course, but also combat gas and highly explosive rockets. It was used during the entire WW2 conflict on all fronts. As I do not like to simply "copy" an existing model, I also built a light blueish grey version which has a different undercarriage and mounting system. The undercarriage is based on a modified plate 2x2 with pins while the mounting system relies on a technic connector. It allows for larger and more realistic wheels and a lighter mounting system. Nebelwerfer 41 by Veynom, on Flickr Here, the rear view of both Nebelwerfers shows you the loaded one firing its first rocket (left) and one without any ammunition in it (right). Nebelwerfer 41 by Veynom, on Flickr Hope you like these. I have been contemplating to build a white-ish version representing the winter paint job used on the East front as well but I lack the necessary bricks. And I have no winter soldier as well. ;)
  3. Finally, I built something too small to motorize: This is a Breuer Lokomotor, or shunting tractor. This tiny vehicle was made for moving rolling stock around stations that for economic or logistical reasons could not have a full-sized shunting locomotive. They were powered by inline petrol (and in later models, diesel) engines mounted transversely in the body, connected to a manual transmission and powering the wheels through a chain drive (!). The tractors themselves don't weigh much; to get enough working weight, each end of the tractor has a screw jack that lifts the wagon it's attached to, thereby "stealing" some of its weight for traction. The Type 3 Lokomotor differs from the Type 4 in that it doesn't have an enclosed cab (hard to build at this scale...). The Type 4 is also rated for higher pulling power. At the scale of this model I didn't have room to include magnets, but it's possible to connect the screw jacks on the model to the "new" buffers with a few plates: The short wheelbase of the Lokomotor means that this arrangement will traverse switches and curves, despite the fact that, properly, there should be another joint in the connecting link. Unfortunately, it's not powered. Full Brickshelf gallery here, and instruction gallery here. Thanks for reading!

    [MOC] Focke-Wulf FW190A

    Features: 2 x 8mm MG 4 x 20mm Cannon Canopy slides back to open Throttle lever Cockpit accepts a minifig pilot Naviagation lamps (red, green, white) Retractable landing gear National insignia built in bricks; no stickers used Camouflage painting applied on all sides using bricks Engine can be separated for inspection
  9. Hi all, This is a German jet fighter in WW2. Features: - 4 x 30mm cannon barrels visible on the nose - National insignia made in bricks; no stickers used - Canopy opens backwards - Accepts a minifig pilot - Retractable landing gear - Navigation lamps (red, green, white) - Fuselage can be broken into 2 parts - A transparent support is required when the gears are extended because the tail is heavier than the nose. In the real fighter the nose would be way heavier because of the cannons and the engines, but my model is all ABS plastic so the weight difference cannot be put into practice.
  10. Hi all, The model is Messerschmitt Bf109, the most numerous German fighter in WW2, if not the most famous. I designed it from scratch and did not take features from other creators' work. I spent about 7 years designing and financing this project, and I finally finished it last year. Thanks to the work-from-home policy I don't have to drive as much, and I have more free time to share my creations with the world. You will see that some parts are in the new bluish grey while some parts are in the old grey. There are different patterns of 1x2 jumpers. A few parts even show cracks. This is the testament to the time spent to build this up, so I decided not to replace them with new parts in perfect condition. The 1x2x3 train door pieces and the 1x1 round plate with tow ball don't come in the new light bluish gray anyway. The building technique I used to make the aerodynamic fuselage is similar to the 3D wooden puzzle made out of interlocking thin boards. You can see the vertical and horizontal layers coming together to form a pixelated curvature. The width of the fuselage starts in 4 studs and reduces to 3 studs, then 2 studs, squeezing all the way to 1 stud. The internal connection is achieved with technic pieces, locking hinges and clips. I use it a LOT in my models because it allows you to add complicated painting schemes to the surface while maintaining the correct form and structural integrity. Notice that I still try to use as much slope/wedge/curved pieces as possible. Features: - 2 x 20mm cannons mounted on wings - 2 x 8mm MG on top of the engine (represented by a pair of black 1x4 hinge pieces) - 20mm cannon mounted coaxial with the propeller axle - Ammunition stowage (accepts any 1x2 tile as ammo belt) - Skeleton canopy opens/closes like the real thing - Cockpit has enough space to accept a pilot wearing an aviator helmet and a life jacket (new small type) - Throttle lever tilts back and forth - Instrument panel represented by 2 hollow studs in black - Service doors on wings - Landing gear retracts completely into the wings (VERY sturdy as well!) - Tail gear may be steered - Navigation lamps. (red, green, white) It's an homage to the tradition of Lego's airport sets that always had navigation lamps on the commercial airliners. - Engine cowl opens for inspection; exhaust pipes and ignition system visible - Behind the engine you can see the turbocharger intake and a hole for the hand crank - Fuel tank cap can be opened - Both wings may be detached for towing on road - Fuselage separates into 4 major components (to swap/combine painting schemes easily) - National insignia is made out of bricks; no stickers used. Designed to be visible from all sides. - A jettisonable fuel tank may be attached to the bottom I have posted a video on YouTube so that you can see the moving parts: Pictures: (The wings may look very fragile because they are hanging on the 1x2 locking hinge pieces, but there's another pair of clips inside the fuselage that connect to the top side of the wings. The wings are actually so strong that you can lift the whole thing by the tip of a wing. Details explained in the video.)

    [MOC] Umbauwagen 3yg

    Greetings, Train Tech! About a year ago, I posted my Umbauwagen 4yg. Here is the 3-axle variant, the 3yg: The name Umbauwagen means "rebuilt coach" -- these coaches were built after World War 2 by modernizing prewar compartment coaches. More accurately, this is an AB3yg (first/second class) + B3yg (second class) pair -- these cars were nearly always found in close-coupled pairs. A few survive as single units in work trains, painted yellow. The body of the model is essentially constructed the same way as my 4yg model: studs-up construction for the main body (leveraging the train window and the 2x8x2 curved slope), SNOT construction for the doors, the details around the buffer, steps, and corridor bellows. Of course I designed new side frames, and there are a few minor details that are different such as the lights above the end doors of the pair. These cars were painted green in DB service, but as the train window does not come in green I elected to build the 3yg in a different color scheme. I believe that this livery corresponds to 3yg cars used as trailers for the ET 85 electric units -- someone with more knowledge of German railways may be able to shed more light on this. At the time I built the 4yg I also built some test models to research how feasible it would be to build the three-axle variant. However, I ran into difficulties designing the chassis and moved on building the 4-axle variant instead (which had none of these challenges). Earlier this year I circled back and spent some time looking into the problem. The first attempt was to articulate the chassis as 4+2, pivoting the body to reduce the overhang -- a technique I previously used on the tender for my model of the Gr670. However, the Umbauwagen 3yg not only has a long 3-axle wheelbase, but also has a long distance between the outer axles and the buffers: Articulating the chassis as 4+2 would allow the car to negotiate turns, however it would also derail any vehicle attached to it as the buffers swung out widely. Further iteration yielded the general outline of my eventual solution: The center and end axles are connected together with a 6-bar linkage, rather than a rigid frame, allowing the chassis to change shape when traveling through curves. It's important to note that the center axle is actually what actuates the system. As the car enters a curve, the center axle is pushed sideways to follow the curve, which in turn angles the outer axles to follow the curve as well. The track cannot apply rotational forces through a single pair of wheels on one axle, and so a similar design to this one without the center axle would not work. You can see the mechanism here: The outer axles are mounted on 2x2 round bricks riding in a 2-stud-wide channel, allowing them to turn and slide slightly towards the center of the car in turns. I experimented a bit to find the best places for the pivots and a construction that would be light and reliable. In the final model I removed the blue tiles shown in the screenshot, to avoid additional friction and binding in the mechanism. Thanks for following along! As usual, I've uploaded some additional images to a Brickshelf gallery, including some notes on and prototypes of the linkage mechanism. Thanks for reading, and let me know if you have any questions!

    Lego SDKFZ - 10 WW2 Vehicle

    Hey guys today I'm presenting you my new MOC ! The SDKFZ - 10 is a vehicle adopted by the German Army during WW2.

  15. Hello everyone, my name is Ivo and this is my fist MOC. I've returned to Lego after 20 years when I started playing again with my son. He is now almost 5, and we're building every day together. I've started this project with literally zero brick (I didn't want to steal parts from our playing sets) and zero experience, so it took my about 14 months of planning, acquiring parts and building it. There are many things am not fully satisfied with, but I've had so much fun making this project and I guess that's what really matters. I've tried to recreate a scene from a German WW2 mythical "Die Glocke" project. Allegedly, die glocke was a top secret German wunderwaffe or wonder weapon project with purpose of changing the course of war. There are many speculation of what actually the glocke device did once after it was activated. There are many theory - biological weapon, anti-gravity device, even torsion field generator that can alter time and space. But am not about to bore here with technicality speculations, especially because the device was never found after the war, and there is no real proof of anything about its function. Although some elements of my project are trying to be as much as it can be called authentic (experiment location, glocke device look, bussing nag 4500 crane truck) almost everything is purely fictional. Thanks for stopping by and of course comments and critics are always welcome.

  19. Hey again! It's me, Pau, and I know I've posted Magic Shop on Eurobricks before, but the pictures are all wrong, there's missing information and I just thought I'd post it properly again. Here goes nothing! Magic Shop (btw, the most awesome name a modular has ever had ) Please support Magic Shop on Lego Ideas: From the bottom of my heart, I wouldn't do this if I didn't feel it stopping, that's why I need your help. Rather than saying everything I've said before again, I'd much rather reflect my thoughts looking a year back. (DeLorean goes here).... I still remember the day I was building this, looks alright, definetely interiors aren't my strongest point. The detail I added on the back wall works nicely. That stained glass window is still mindblowing. Nice details throughout, nothing spectacular though. I really love the desk lamp, made from that weird piece introduced as weightlifting weights. Did you know that it wasn't until this floor was begun that I decided upon a German timbered house, the idea before that was a "glass and mirrors" sort of thingy. Great floor on the exterior, rather strange on the interior. Btw, while building this on LDD, I accidentally destroyed half of the back wall and had to be reconstructed ! The minifigs, six. Enough to populate the modular's street. Rather cool paining though. EXTRA CONTENT!! Just like there was a Mini-Modulars set, I did one for this! The "original design" included an extra floor that was just removed from the set. A very good idea in my opinion.

    Steam Engine Train

    Hello, I would like to present my latest train MOC: a German steam engine. Steam engines appeal different from country to country. In Germany most steam engines had a red wheel undercarriage, steam engines in some other European countries too. For those who like steam engines completely black: all parts for this engine are already available. For those who like a red undercarriage: please support this set on LEGO IDEAS ( The steam engine bases on the steam engine https://en.wikipedia...i/Prussian_G_12. This steam engine was a goods train locomotive, and as goods train locomotives have small wheels for high traction force I used small LEGO train wheels. I did not like the plain, high gloss surface of the tender, so I decided to take bricks with studs on sides. These studs symbolize oversized rivets. I watched LEGO sets like freight train 60052. This set does not contain only a freight train, it also contains a truck and a fork lift. So you can transport something with the truck to the station, load it on the freight car and take it to the next station. At 1925 there were only a few trucks and no fork lifts, so I decided to add a horse carriage. Now you can play as you can play with freight train 60052: you can transport something to the station, load it into the freight car and transport it to the next station. Ludger

    [MOC] Umbauwagen 4yg

    Greetings, Train Tech! I build a lot of locomotives, but I hadn't really built any models of rolling stock with the same effort as I put into my locomotives. Until now. This is a model of a German Umbauwagen, or "rebuilt coach". They were constructed in the post-WW2 period by modernizing prewar compartment coaches, as the Deutsche Bundesbahn was strapped for cash at the time. They came in two main "flavors": the three-axle 3yg, and the four-axle 4yg I've modeled here. I initially learned about Umbauwagen while doing research for this passenger car (which itself was found while doing research for the glaskasten...). Inspecting an engineering diagram convinced me that it would be possible to build the 4-axle variant at my usual scale of 15 inches / stud (~1/48) and have it go around standard Lego curves. The main compromise I made was to reduce the length of the body from 51 to 50 studs. An even length made it possible to use the 2x8 double curved slope for the roof and the 1x4x3 train window. Since the window only comes in a limited palette of colors I wound up building in blue. My understanding is that Umbauwagen ran most of their lives in green livery, but I found photos of models in a variety of colors. I'd appreciate it if someone more familiar with these cars could shed some light on this subject. Of course, it's not much of a train with only one car... ... so I built two. I'm pleased with how closely the cars couple to each other while still being able to make it around turns. While doing background research for this model I came across Duq's rendition. Duq's model features an excellent rendition of the Minden-Deutz MD 36 bogie. Rather than just steal those, I decided to model the my cars with the Schwanenhals ("swan neck") bogies. These bogies have a somewhat American appearance with their arched outside frame. The buffers and stairs are attached to the trucks and rotate with them in curves. The trucks use Big Ben Bricks wheels. This may mark the first time I've completed cars without a locomotive to go with them. Full Brickshelf gallery here (pending moderation). Thanks for reading!

  24. Hello everyone... per an article I read a few weeks ago, the German National Football Team minifigures are going to be released on May 14th... that is just a few days away from today... for those AFOLs who have no access to buying directly in stores that are across the pond or next to the border of Germany, how would you go about acquiring a complete set?... I want to avoid eBay if at all possible, so any AFOLs out there willing to help those of us who are stuck?... (not sure if there has been a discussion devoted to this - my apologies if there is already)
