    [MOC/WiP] China Railways QJ with PF!

    Hi, all! After piddling around with some small projects for the past few months, I decided it was time for a challenge! I'm building a Power Functions steam locomotive where the locomotive is powered (as opposed to a tender). To make things harder, the prototype isn't some small shunter, but the 2-10-2 China Railways QJ: The QJ is a fairly large mainline engine whose roots can be traced back to the various German 2-10-0s used extensively during WWII. Its primary claim to fame is probably the longevity of the design and quantity of units built - 4700 between 1956 and 1988. The QJ was used extensively on Chinese mainlines throughout the latter half of the 20th century, and a few soldered on in revenue service toward the end of the 2000s. Three survive in the US, two owned by Iowa Interstate, and one by RJ Corman. Anyway, I've decided to do a log of the build and share some of the process. We'll see how this goes. As always, the first step for me is finding drawings. I had previously wanted to try my hand at some smaller Chinese locos like the SY or JS, but having not found any drawings, the QJ was it. Resized to my usual scale of 15" per stud, it looks like this: The next task is to decide on the layout of the chassis. The "obvious" way to do it would be Emerald Night style - 2-10-2 with a blind-flange-blind-flange-blind configuration for the 10-coupled section, but this method results in a lot of overhang on curves, especially so if the body is attached directly to the 10-coupled section, and I really don't like that. That and other issues with the 10-coupled arrangement led me to look at more fun (complicated) designs, and I eventually settled on the following: This is a 2-2-4-4-2 articulation where the cylinders are actually locked to the middle 4 wheels because that's where the drive rods will connect. This arrangement lets me have driving and connecting rods across all flanged drivers, which I really like, and this also keeps the maximum width of the chassis at 9 studs at the cylinders. Yes, the 3rd and 4th axles aren't visually connected, but I would prefer having a gap over a thick or uneven connecting rod (full/overlapped half beams). At this point I had a vague idea of how I'd connect everything together, so I dumped it into LDD to sketch out the overall shape. Here I've just thrown together my intial thoughts of how I'd build various parts of the loco just to line things up with the drawing and evaluate the overall look and feel. I start like this because to me it's much more important that the overall proportions of a locomotive are correct and less important that individual details are all modeled. Now we can start on the detailed design. The first issue I tackled was the all-important method by which I'd connect all the axles that weren't already linked with connecting rods. To that end, I had known I would probably use a mechanism I had already used multiple times in the past, but I spent a lot of time trying to make it more rigid and compact. I also discovered how much easier it is to compact various assemblies by going to an all-studless chassis. Next up, connecting motors to the now coupled drivers. This has proven to be by far the most difficult part so far. One of the things that's really important to me is minimizing the overhang of the locomotive body inside and outside when it goes around a curve. To adjust this, you can move where the body pivots on the chassis (typically two points, one toward the front and one toward the rear - on a diesel these are the points at which the body connects to the bogies) forward and backward. The catch is, now the drivetrain connecting the motors to the wheels has to flex through these points as well. I settled on an initial design like this: As you can see, the drive train comes up from the last driven axle through the point at which the trailing axle is connected. Then it goes backward and there's a univeral joint through the point at which the body is connected to the last axle. How the motors are supposed to be joined to each other and to the wheels is still unclear here. At this point, I decided to make a mockup and do a test run, because you never know if things you make in LDD are going to work in reality or not. In this case, it did not. Turns out that the joint above the last driven axle was far too flimsy, and trying to transmit any significant amount of torque through it would throw the rear drivers off the track. And so here I am at the moment: This is actually the first design that made it around my test track, and it seems to do so fairly reliably for now. You can see the (yellow) more rigid redesign of the flimsy transmission and the (orange) more detailed design of the first driven axle. The actual testbed is not quite as pretty colored: More updates to come, stay tuned!

    [MOC] Street racer

    Hello, let's start the race! It is my own hypercar concept with a minifigure. I reused some details of my earlier idea called "Hypercar concept 1", but I wanted to build this car even more dynamic. It is a studless model built from standard LEGO elements. The overall size is similar to the Speed Champions sets, but the wheels are from City sets as I wanted to keep the height to length ratio closer to the real sports cars. If you like this car, please share and support it on Lego Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/146d40fc-49de-4af5-8173-4c73892a003e Many thanks!

    MOC: Batman vs Black Mask

    Batman vs Black Mask Bullets fly as Batman attempts to take down the powerful drug kingpin Black Mask in his run down narcotics warehouse. This is the largest Batman creation I’ve made, and in addition to being packed full of details, it’s also the first time I’ve made a scene where Batman is after the Black Mask. It’s also my first creation that’s greatly inspired by the Arkham games, with the character choices stemming from the soon to be released Arkham Origins. The build itself features tons of details from twin conveyor belts moving drugs to six large windows. There’s also two wall mounted ventilation fans as well as two celling fans. There’s also three large support beams on the roof that hold up three large lights that Batman is running across (Dodging fire at the same time!). A small office is there too, as well as two gargoyles for the Dark Knight to perch on. Clean up in the narcotics aisle... This creation was actually first shown in an interview I had with Beyond the Brick. You can watch that interview .Inverted Takedown Enjoy ~Captain Nemo
  5. The first one was posted in the scale forum, but I got the advice to post this here. I have improved some things and now I'm posting it again. I build the truck with no example, just from what I knew how a truck looks like. When I was finished I wondred where I've seen this truck before. Than I checked the internet, and guess what: see this movie Sorry if my English is not correct, but normaly I'm writing in Dutch. Let me know what you think of it.

    Monty Python Black Knight

    Hi Everyone, Let me share with you my latest creation. I designed it to my brother for his birthday. He's a big Monty Python fan. It's the the Black Knight from the Monty Python and the Holy Grail movie. The knight is a simple black figure (with black head) with a custom printed torso. I've placed it into an IKEA Ribba picture frame. Hope you like it!

    [MOC] Batman Tumbler UCS Scale

    This is my Batman Tumbler that was inspired by the UCS set. It is pretty much the same scale of the set, a little smaller but this has no interior because, well I know if you follow me you've heard this enough but...I don't have enough parts. I really wanted to buy the actual set but it was just too expensive so I just decided to make my own. Granted, not as good because I'm not a professional Lego designer but you know, it works. I hope you like it and can get inspired from my mocs. Please be sure to check out my Batpod MOD and LOTR Mocs. Thanks, MovieMocs
  11. This is my mod of the super rare, special edition, Batpod. Only 1000 of these sets were made and could only be won via sweepstakes at the Lego stores in 2014. I've always wanted this set but it was always so expensive on ebay ($1000+) so I got the instructions and tried to build it myself. I had 75% of the parts and they were all pretty much the basic Lego parts. I was going to order the parts I didn't have but just the wheels alone cost $22 each! I just didn't have that money so I decided to make my own version, similar to the set but I exchanged some rare parts for more common ones. For example, I didn't have the real Batpod wheels so I used the wheels from my technic MK II crane and doubled them up which I found looked quite nice and was worth not paying an extra $45. There are maybe 10 other mods I added just becuse I didn't have the special parts but I still think it has that "Batman" feel to it. I hope you like it and will maybe even build one of your own. Thanks, MovieMocs
  12. Hi eurobricks, here Is a MOC I have started, it will be a 1998 Vauxhall Astra. I hope for it to feature: • Opening doors • Opening boot • Opening hood • Working windscreen wipers • Working lights • Full RC Here is a picture of progress so far: and here is some pictures of the real car: Tell me what you think ;)
  13. This car has been in the works for a month now. A big thanks to Sariel's Lego model scaler for proper proportion and Brunojj1 for pushing me to use scaling. It is truely rewarding building a detailed car. Dugald built the awesome chassis, and I designed and built the rest. This beast has a custom made supercharged V12, working steering wheel, servo for steering and 2x XL motors for drive, torsion bar suspension. Utilizing the large Porsche rims, we had to gear down the servo so it turns proper. The toughest part of this build were the doors & torsion bar suspension. This car has 1880 pieces, 956 pieces in the framework, and 924 pieces in the body work.

  15. Well, it's been more than a year since I started work on my last locomotive MOC, the China Railways QJ. Having built most of the practical engines (not too big for R40 curves) that I was visually interested in, I had to wait a bit before my interest was piqued again on the locomotive front. My inspiration came from running the QJ at most BayLUG meetings for the past year and change. The QJ isn't necessarily unreliable or difficult to set up, but it's still not very convenient: the model isn't that easy to move around or manipulate due to the size, the tender, and the number of fragile bits. The lengthy drivetrain with its fair amount of friction and torque also prevents the engine from generating smooth low-end torque. Finally, BayLUG still runs 9v at most of our shows, and the QJ can't easily be converted to run on 9v. So this is really my second locomotive to be born of functional requirements (the first was my U30B): 1. It should be easy to transport [from here to there] and move around [a layout] 2. It should be designed with robustness as a key feature 3. It should be easily convertible between PF and 9v operation 3b. The PF components should be easily removable (also helps with charging) 3a. It should run smoothly when pushed [by a 9v power car] Requirements 1 and 3 really insist that this engine be a large tank engine: for 1 I don't need to deal with a tender when transporting or moving and for 3 it needs to be big enough to fit all of the PF stuff. It actually took me quite a bit of time to zero in on the X-10-a as large tank engines are apparently pretty rare in the US and North America: it seems that even most of our branch line and shunting steam engines were tendered. But eventually I found a drawing and the work began! What I learned from the QJ is that if the weight of the loco is properly distributed, one powered (and tyred) axle is good enough to generate usable torque. From this notion I designed the chassis to have exactly that one powered axle, which I could easily remove to remove tyres and gearing for 9v operation. For the same reason, the driven axle isn't cranked either; in the QJ I would have had to remove all of the cranks and all of the wheels to access the tyres or gears. The lack of cranks on the driven axle also lets me keep the chassis articulated, which should help minimize rolling resistance for 9v operation (say compared to a 6-coupled flange-blind-flange configuration for the drivers). The drive rods are made using the half-pin in rod-track technique, and there's a bit of a hack: the connecting rods have to go around a corner due to the articulation, so the travel is longer than the usual three studs, and the connecting rods are both loosely pinned down and made of flex. As far as I can tell this arrangement doesn't add significant friction, probably because the corner is very small. The engine is designed to be powered with two M-motors, but I'm using the E-motor right now for the novelty. Unfortunately it wasn't quite possible to get as much weight as I would have liked over the driven axle: the battery box must go behind the boiler due to its height, and that really limits weight distribution options. The loose 9v motor in the front is simulating the weight of a second M-motor, and it helps bring the net weight over the driven axle to maybe 60 percent? Here you can also see how all the bits come out of the engine: almost all of the top surfaces are detachable. Whether this is convenient enough to fulfill requirement 3 remains to be seen. Construction of the body is actually very similar to that of the QJ: structural integrity is mainly provided by studs-out beams and everything else is studs up. Stickers are created at 300DPI and printed on 3M 3200-L mailing label material. This is a small detail, but it is actually one of my favorite parts, inspired by and stolen from 60052: And finally a video showing the locomotive running. The first 70 seconds is PF running and the last 20 seconds is 9v running. For PF running I'm using the AAA battery box with AAA Eneloops and the aforementioned E-motor. The E-motor is actually pretty neat: it has a wider dynamic range than the other PF motors and it is quite quiet as well. Sadly it is a little bit underpowered as well; I'm geared down 3:5 and you can still see it struggle a little in the corners during the PF segment. The 9v segment is a bit hazy, but we ran out of sunlight because DST. The engine is actually smoother than I would have guessed in the unpowered configuration: you can see how it basically doesn't lose *any* speed in the turns, and the regulator is only turned up to notch 3. Alright, I think that's all the commentary I have on this. There is as usual a full gallery if it ever gets moderated. There's a bunch of build and reference pics there that I didn't show. Have a nice day.
  16. Finally got my Kylo Ren command shuttle converted to all black with red viewing port and folding wings. I think it turned out decent and is still very playable and swooshable! Started on it last January, but became addicted to Star Wars Battlefront for way too long after getting a PS4 at Christmas. Anyway with the recent release of Krennic's shuttle in mostly all black, I got inspired to pick up the black pieces from many Bricklink orders and finish my conversion of Kylo Ren's shuttle. I wish I could have gotten the red viewing port "fangs" to transition a little better into the top portion, but it still looks pretty good from a distance. Removing all the cross linked technic beams opened up a lot of room in the interior. I added two sets of the technic rotation joint disks to each wing and now they have three clickable positions for folding up and down. 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command ShuttleIMG_4497 MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr 75104 Kylo Ren Command Shuttle MOD by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr Command Shuttles Comparison by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr Command Shuttles Comparison by Shawn Minkey, on Flickr
  17. Here's my latest creation, and yes it's another sports car. Yay! I wanted to have another go at building a small RC Sports Car, but this time loosely based around a 2009 corvette. This car is wide and low so I was expecting it to be a challenge. I also wanted to use some of the ideas from my other models, such as the L motor setup in the Mini Truck. Features - 2x L motors at 1:3 - 1x Servo - functional doors, boot & hood - battery access under dashboard - working front lights - 36Lx17Wx10H (chassis, in studs) - 804g Like the mini truck, the two L motors make this car move! The extra width seems to give it some extra traction as well. Design wise it isn't perfect, but I did the best with what I had available. Hope you like it. EDIT: Video is up!

  19. After the last boxcab, Commander Wolf and I figured we had to go smaller. And slower. So we decided that both of us should build a motorized model of a GE 23-ton boxcab. We agreed to build them models independently, then meet up and compare approaches. We started with the same scaling image: Since there was some variation among the prototypes, choice of details was a matter of taste. I took most of my references from here. Here's my finished model: The original locomotive is really tiny, so I tried to keep the model about 7 studs wide. There's a lot of SNOT in this model: The main chassis is upside-down, the deckplate and frames are held against that using Technic pins, and the body attaches to some jumpers on the deckplate: The battery box is mounted sideways in the body and the power switch is reached by jabbing an antenna through the window. The roof is actually only held on by gravity: Originally I wasn't sure if I was going to put the caution-stripe tiles on the frames, but codefox421 vouched for them. You can see the full Brickshelf gallery here. So, what did Commander Wolf do? Read on...

    [MOC] Monorail station & sushi grill

    Hi all Here's another new MOC. Moving away from residential buildings but keeping the style with black, white and grey boxes with a lot of glass to provide a contemporary/modern design, my latest building is a monorail station with a sushi and fish restaurant. The big "M" of the city's fast monorail network isn't just attracting many commuters every day but also sushi and fish lovers all over town. Monorail station & sushi grill by Polar Stein, on Flickr During first week of opening, a student in a shark costume was hired to attract commuters and passengers walking by. The entire building is on pillars. At street level (ground floor) there is a disabled parking space and parking space for bikes. The small sushi and fish restaurant extends over first and second level, accessible via stairs and the elevator. At first level there are also restrooms. The second level connects to the monorail station (right end of the building) and is accessible both via stairs and the elevator. A small roof terrace on top of the restaurant provides views over the city. Monorail station & sushi grill by Polar Stein, on Flickr The monorail station entrance has a vending machine providing cool drinks, which is especially handy if you're sweating away in a suit. Monorail station & sushi grill by Polar Stein, on Flickr "The train now approaching platform 1 is the 14:47 Brickston Monorail service to East End calling at Scorpion House and Dark Age Road. Please mind the gap between train and platform ..." Monorail station & sushi grill by Polar Stein, on Flickr The red bricks in the actual platform is a less-than-ideal solution in absence of grey bricks. The monorail train is supposed to be red though . More pictures including interiors and the connection to a simple monorail platform can be found on my flickr page https://flic.kr/s/aHskzjsG2r. Comments and critique, things to improve etc. more than welcome! Cheers, Polarstein
  21. its been a while since I posted so I decided I'd post 2x the content. Focus was on maximum motorized functions including front rear clam shell, doors, shifting (via broken servo motor), 2 speed transmission, steering, sbrick and drive. Enjoy! Youtube: Flicker: https://flic.kr/s/aHskAxCnKJ To see the different build styles, Lox built the red supercar, and Dugald built the white one. The red car has actuating doors, V10, working steering wheel and rear wing when turning, 4wd & rwd. 1 servo, 2 xl for drive, 2 m-motors for opening doors, 1 Sbrick. The white car has 1 servo for steering, 2 xl for drive, 2 M-motors for doors, 1 servo for gear shifting, 1 M-motor for rear clam shell, 1 l-motor for front clam shell.

  22. Built for the 2016 MOCAthalon, the category this time was “Classic Update.” I chose to update the Black Falcon Fortress #6074. The original featured a working drawbridge and hinging walls to allow for multiple building layouts. I kept both those features, and added a dual catapult, jail with break-away wall, great hall with fireplace and table, and a stables with working gate. There are 6 minifigs included: 4 Black Falcons, and 2 Crusaders, plus there are two horses, some extra weapons, and a treasure chest. There are 2 ladders to allow minifigs to reach the walls, and they can fold up out of the way so you can reach into the interior. See more pictures on brickbuilt Thanks for looking, I hope you enjoyed this remake of a classic set. I admit to rigorously play testing this model
  23. Hi all, Back with my second MOC after some weeks of buying bricks, thinking, scetching, scratching my head, building and buying more bricks. Scorpion house is a modern hillside villa overlooking a lake. Partly built into a rocky terrain it features four levels. The house is designed with basically six boxes of different sizes in just black and white. I do like such designs a lot, so the second proper MOC had to be such a design as well. Initially I wanted to build something rather extreme in terms of technique, based on the design ideas in this house from swiss architect Andre Treina. http://www.schoener-...g-haus-am-hang. I saved that for later with all those angles and massive height. The idea which I finally kept, still stretching my design and lego capabilities, is a house built for a car lover (personally I'm not ;-)) on a hillside terrain and several boxes with concrete and glass. The glass front faces the lake and provides spectacular views, especially from second and third level. The back of the house includes much less windows as it faces a steeper hill. Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr Scorpion house - sketches & layout by Polar Stein, on Flickr The main entrance and big garage is at ground/street level. The owners had ordered the garage door in Ferrari red as they own an Italia GT2 model, which is driven mostly by the wife. The main entrance connects to the house with a six stud wide corridor or tunnel to the main building. The beloved car can be seen through large glas windows walking through the corridor (and also top windows next to the swimming pool). The garage provides a small service access for the pumps and pipes of the pool. At the end of the entrance corridor stairs lead up to the first level. Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr Pictures from above where done by the lady with the quadcopter. Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr At first level we face a small bathroom when leaving the stairs. Turning right either leads up to the second level or two steps down to the kitchen and eating area. Glas doors open to the swimming pool and (way too small!) front garden on top of the garage. Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr On the second level there is a large bathroom with a steam shower and access to the small sauna. The roof is with glas elements just over the bathroom area to provide natural light. Yes, the sauna provides stunning views through a large glas window over the lake. The owners are aware that they could be seen from the street. Those who prefer a different layout may turn the whole left box into staircases or assume the owners use their swimwear (what a sin). The second level also contains the living room, again with stunning views over the lake, the master bedroom and a room for the child. The master bedroom has a glass roof as well to watch the stairs while lying in bed. Access to the third top level is via spiral stairs.

Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr In case you wonder about the name of the house, look again at the garage door handle. It's the wife's star sign. Scorpion house - modern hillside villa by Polar Stein, on Flickr More pictures on Flickr including some interiors (I'm not great with interiors). I'm reasonably pleased with the overall design and shape of the house itself, architecual effects with technic bricks are more reduced this time. I need to think of a way to improve the actual terrain and don't like that it looks a bit packed. I'm also not too happy with the rocks which I wanted to do a bit larger and with a stronger influence on the shape of the terrain, also extending behind the house on the left side, almost reaching into the pool etc. Maybe next time. I also find it difficult to do proper pictures. Comments and critique very welcome!
  24. Starting with a custom framework and a new design and location for the motors, I tried to put as much as I could into as little space. This time I tried to create a cleaner version of my suicisissor doors.This car has working headlights, steering by servo motor, driven by 2 L-motors with 3x differentials bringing the power to the wheels. I have been collecting all black parts for quite some time and am glad I can finally create a totally back supecar. Totally blacked out!

    Wind-up Robot

    The all time classic toy of the 20th century and to me the coolest toy right after LEGO now finally in brick form! This is my project for LEGO Ideas. It uses a classic blocky body and cubic head design to make it simple and cute. It is, as you can see,decorated with a control panel on the chest, a face with two scary red eyes and a cool little window on it's back that lets you watch the mechanism at work. And it can really walk!!! Let me know which colour and which design (arms, antennas, etc.) you like more Thank you. If you like it, please support on LEGO Ideas.
