    Skuldelev Ships

    Still not pirate ships, as such, but some of them could be handy for a bit of raiding. The models resemble five ships from just after 1000 A. D. Viking-age in Scandinavia. They are minifig-scale or 1:40’ish. The largest model, Skuldelev 2, will have the dimensions Length: 80 cm, Height: 40 cm (with stand), Width: 10,5 cm The smallest model, Skuldelev 6, will have the dimensions Length: 29 cm, Height: 21,5 cm (with stand), Width: 7 cm There is approx. 4900 bricks in the models combined. With 2100 going to Skuldelev 2, 1100 to skuldelev 1 and 450-700 bricks for each of the other ships. The main source of reference is the The viking Ship Museum: Vikingeskibsmuseet i Roskilde The focus of the museum is a permanent exhibition of the five original Viking ships excavated nearby in 1962. The line drawings and data found at the museum is the basis for the models and the replicas Ottar, The Sea Stallion from Glendalough, Roar Ege, Helge Ask and Kraka Fyr are invaluable source material for the colors and final look. Information about the ships can be found here and at the links found above https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skuldelev_ships Skuldelev 1 A “large”cargo vessel (Knarr), 1030 A. D. Skuldelev 2 (and 4, see information) A Warship (Skeid), 1042 A. D. Skuldelev 3 A cargo vessel (Byrding), 1040 A. D. Skuldelev 5 A small warship (Snekkja), 1030 A. D. Skuldelev 6 A fishing boat or small cargo vessel (Ferje), 1030 A. D.

    (MOC) DSB Litra DB (II)

    Presenting another Danish wagon...a design-project for another Danish LUG-member to build and test in real bricks (!) DSB Litra DB (II) The Danish State Railways' (DSB) improved Litra DB (II) travelling post offices (TPOs) were built by Scandia in Denmark. 5 were built in 1961. All have been scraped today, the last one in 2011. The model: Digital but has been built and being tested irl with free bulding instructions also in the works Original DSB maroon livery used from the fifties to the seventies - with Dark Red a very good match albeit a bit too clean Scale: ~1:50 Lenght: 34 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 808 (very heavy, so ball bearings recommended) Designed: 2012 & 2017 & 2019 Sadly the LEGO Digital Designer file was lost a few years ago when all my data were lost (including multiple backups). So I had to recreate the model from scratch using two remaining screenshots posted online. Rather strange experience to reverse engineering yourself Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals done in the PartDesigner tool and some manuel editing. The roof can be removed, giving access inside the wagon and the doors can slide in opposite directions by flipping the blocking hinge parts down. Technique used for the bogies - prepared for ball bearings Maybe some photoes of the real thing will be added later when completely done...
  3. An old project finalized after seven years Herningværket Vestkraft I/S All three typers of wagons were part of the company's famous coal train "kultoget" transporting coal from Vestkraft in the costal city of Esbjerg to Herningværket power plant in the inland city of Herning from the year 1982 to 2000. FALS coal wagon Digital model but built in 2012The 18 coal wagons were built in Denmark by Scandia in 1981-82 on license from Talbot in Germany.All were sold to France in 2000.My model:Scale: ~1:50Lenght: 30 bricksWidth: 8 bricksBricks: 312Weight: 335gDesigned: 2012 (slightly updated in 2018)Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals done in the PartDesigner tool. The doors can be opened up to 45 degrees: Top view: ASJ tank wagon Digital model but being built very soon... The six tank wagons bought by Vestkraft I/S in 1981 were originally built in 1948-49 by AB Svenska Järnvägsverkstäderna (ASJ) in Falun, Sweden. All six were scrapped in 1991. My model: Scale: ~1:45 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 6-8 bricks Bricks: 302 Designed: 2019 Very high setting render from Stud.io using custom decorations from Stud.io, LDD to Pov-Ray and manual editing. Side view: The two 1-axle boogies can rotate and are held in place by a Hose, Flexible Ribbed with 8mm Ends, 10L. Technique used for the mid-cylinder: AVG tank wagon Digital model. The two AVG tank wagons bought by Vestkraft I/S in 1991 were originally built in 1968 by AB Gävle Vagnverkstäder (AGV) in Gävle, Sweden. Both were removed from service in 2002 and scrapped in 2003. My model: Scale: ~1:45 Lenght: 40 bricks Width: 6-8 bricks Bricks: 361 Designed: 2019 Very high setting render from Stud.io using custom decorations from Stud.io, LDD to Pov-Ray and manual editing. Some of the custom decorations were truly horrific to render due to their bend Top view: Technique used for the mid-cylinder: The locomotives (!) Both types of locomotives were from the Danish State Railways (DSB). In the the earlier years of operation from 1982 to 1993 two Litra MX (1001 & 1024) were used, one in the front and one in the back whereas in the later years from 1993 until the end of operation in 2000 a single more powerful Litra MZ (I) (1404) were used. DSB Litra MX The Litra MX locomotives were built on license from General Motors by Nydquist & Holm AB - Bofors-Nohab in Trollhättan, Sweden. 45 were built from 1960-1962. The Litra MX were very similar to their big brother Litra MY but had a smaller engine and lower weight with less pressure on the tracks making them popular on smaller railroads. Quite a few are still used today by private railway companies either domestic or abroad. One locomotive is on display at a railway museum in the city of Stuer, Denmark. My model: Digital model but based on my very first train MOC from 2011 with the same basic design. DSB red and black livery used in the 1980s. Room for lights in all headlights and the interior. Scale: ~1:60 Lenght: 40 bricks Width: 6 bricks Bricks: 546 Powered: 1 or 2 x PF, PUp or 9v train motor(s) Designed: 2019 (variant of my Litra MY update in 2018) Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals done in the PartDesigner tool. Interior: One of my pictures from 2013 with a Litra MY pulling some of the coal wagons: DSB Litra MZ (I) The Danish State Railways (DSB) powerful Litra MZ (I) locomotives were built by Swedish Nydquist & Holm AB (Nohab) in Sweden and subcontractors in Denmark on license from General Motors. 10 were built from 1967-1969. 61 in total were built across all MZ variants (I-IV). Quite a few are still used today by private railway companies either domestic or abroad, in Iran, Norway and Australia. My model: Digital model but based on my second train MOC from 2011 with the same basic design. DSB red and black livery used in the 1980s. Scale: ~1:60 Lenght: 40 bricks Width: 6 bricks Bricks: 653 Powered: 1 or 2 x PF, PUp or 9v train motor(s) Redesigned: 2015 (4st revision) Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals done in the PartDesigner tool and some manual color replacement of the upper headlights. The top can easily be lifted providing access to the battery box and all others parts inside: Photo inspired by LEGO train builder Sérgio Batista

    (MOC) DSB IC3

    Presenting another Danish train... DSB IC3 The Danish State Railways’ (DSB) highly successful and innovative InterCity 3 (IC3) passenger train was co-developed by Siemens Duewag in Germany and ABB Scandia in Denmark. The train is operated by DSB in Denmark and Sweden, by Renfe Operadora in Spain and by Israel Railways in Israel. Amtrak in the USA and Via Rail in Canada have tested the train in the past. A trainset consists of three units, two diesel motor units (MFA and MFB) and one intermediary unit (FF). Up to five trainsets can be coupled together. 96 trainset were built for DSB from 1989 to 1991. All are still in service today. My model: Room for lights in all headlights and interior. Scale: 1:50 Lenght: 140 bricks (MFA 46 bricks - FF bricks 40 - MFB 46 bricks) Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 2.084 (9v) or 2.079 (PF) Powered: 2 x 9v or 2 x PF train motors with 2 x battery boxses Designed: 2017 Digital model but built by me (and many others) irl Very high setting render from Stud.io with custom decals done in the PartDesigner tool. Free building instructions: DSB IC3 9v variant here DSB IC3 PF variant here DSB original white and red livery of the 1990-2000s: View from the side - unfortunately the wide gab between the units is necessary to run through R40 curved tracks smoothly: Access to the interior with seating for 54 minifig passengers, 2 train drivers and additional space for 2 bicycles, standing passengers, stewards and 2 toilet guests: FF unit (PF) with 2 IR Receivers, 2 Battery Boxes and 1 Polarity Switch: Technique used for the sliding toilet doors - turning the Pneumatic T Piece 90° behind the seat keeps the door shut when closed: Youtube video from fellow Danish LUG member Knud Ahrnell Albrechtsen:
  5. Presenting Odense Kommandopost (signal box) from my hometown, Odense in Denmark. (or at least my interpretation) My model: Scale: ~1:60 Lenght: 32 bricks Width: 34 bricks Bricks: 2.394 Model built: 2012 & 2018 (finished inside and re-designed for Moduverse, our Scandinavian variant of MILS) Very high setting rendering using Stud.io but built irl. Front Rear Inside As built (not the greatest photo, sorry)
  6. Presenting another Danish shunter...DSB Litra MH 322 History: The Danish State Railways (DSB) diesel shunter Litra MH were built in great numbers by Frichs in Denmark from the year 1960 to 1965. In all 120 shunters were built to replace the steam shunters still being used. The shunters were repainted in the 80's to black and red from the original dark green. The last shunter was decommissioned in 2001. ©Hans Stückler My model: Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 455 Motortype: PF Model built: 2012-14 The stickers are homemade with self-adhesive labels printed by a copy shop and then cut by myself to fit. The upper part is primarily constructed with plates and tiles, in general only a few standard bricks are used in the construction. The model is run by PF and requires one 9v battery connected by custom adapter to the Power Functions M-Motor. Pull and speed are acceptable. The shunter pulling a white Litra Gs wagon.
  7. The Church of Our Lady is a famous medieval church in Kalundborg, Denmark. The church is built around year 1220. With its five distinctive towers, it stands on a hill above the harbour, making it the town's most imposing landmark. The architecture of the church is inspired by the New Jerusalem in the Book of Revelation. In the Middle Ages, the New Jerusalem was imagined as a fortified city with five towers. The central tower of the church collapsed in 1827 but it was rebuilt in 1871. The LEGO version is built in scale 1:100. The real church: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Our_Lady,_Kalundborg Link to my flickr: https://www.flickr.com/photos/66344850@N06/albums/72157692153890054

    MOC: Denmark

    Denmark is known as the home of the LEGO company. But if some of you are going to Denmark there are also many other interesting sights. This map shows the most famous tourist attractions and landmarks built in micro-scale. More photos and descriptions can be seen on flickr: https://www.flickr.c...57650920794368/ It took about 3 months to build the map.

    MOC: Roskilde

    Roskilde is the 10th largest city in Denmark with a population around 48,000 and is located 30 km west of Copenhagen. Roskilde is a historic city and during the late Viking Age and Middle Ages it was the capital of Denmark. This layout shows the city center of Roskilde. I got the idea for the layout back in November 2012 when I was exhibiting some of my MOCs at LEGO Fan Welt in Cologne. At the exhibition I bought “The Big Unofficial LEGO Builder's Book” written by Joachim Klang and Oliver Albrecht. The book inspired me to build something in scale 1:100. At the same exhibition a large model of the Cologne Cathedral was exhibited. It inspired me to build the cathedral in my hometown Roskilde. When I came home to Denmark I started building Roskilde Cathedral and its surroundings in scale 1:100. It took 16 month to build the layout. In May 2014 the layout was exhibited for the first time at a LEGO exhibition (Klodsfest) in Roskilde. The most famous building Roskilde is the Cathedral (Roskilde Domkirke). The cathedral is the burial site for the Danish monarchs and is known as the church in the world where most kings and queens are buried. Since 1995, it has been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Roskilde Cathedral contains architecture from the last 800 years. There has been a church on the site since year 980. The current cathedral was built between 1170 and 1280 in the Gothic style. But since then many extensions have been added: The two large west tower was completed around year 1400 The Margrethe Spire is built around 1420 Christian I’s Chapel is built around 1460 Christian IV’s Chapel is built in the Renaissance style around 1620 The two characteristic spires on the towers is built around 1635 Frederik V’s Chapel is built in neo-Classical style around t 1775 Christian IX’s Chapel is built in neo-Byzantine style in 1925 Frederik IX’s Burial Site is built in 1985. More information: http://en.wikipedia....kilde_Cathedral The Former Town Hall of Roskilde was built in neo-Gothic style in 1884. But the tower is much older. It was built in Gothic style around year 1500. Originally it was part of St Lawrence Church. But after the Danish reformation in 1536 the church was demolished. The tower were allowed to stand and in 1884 the tower became part of the new neo-Gothic Town Hall: The real town hall can be seen here: http://en.wikipedia...._mpazdziora.jpg The Yellow Mansion (Roskilde Palæ) was built in the 1730s in Baroque style: The real mansion can be seen here: http://en.wikipedia....ce,_Denmark.jpg The “Absalon Arch” was built in the Gothic style around year 1200 and connected the cathedral to the Bishop's Palace, which at the time was where the yellow mansion is today: The real arch can be seen here: http://en.wikipedia...._(Roskilde).jpg Roskilde Gymnasium is a Danish high school lactated next to the cathedral. There has been a school on the site since year 1020. But no buildings are left from that time. The high school's oldest building is the “Rector Residence”. It has a north wing which dates from around 1770. The rest of the residence is built around 1820: The main building of the school is from 1842: During the last 100 years many additional buildings have been added to the school. The newest building is the blue “Science Building” from 2012: This is how Roskilde looks like in real life: More photos of my layout can be seen here: https://www.flickr.c...57646580719978/
  15. Well, presenting another Köf...with wagons DSB Litra Køf The Danish State Railways (DSB) shunter Køf was the Danish built version by Frichs of the legendary German Köf (Kleinlokomotive, Öl-antrieb durch dieselmotor, kraftübertragung mit Flüssigkeitbetriebe). 40 Køf shunters were built from the year 1966 to 1969 and a few are still in service today. Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 17 bricks Width: 8 bricks Bricks: 270 Motortype: 9v or PF Model built: 2012 Easy access to the IR Receiver: Either 9v or PF can be used to run the model but PF requires the PF train motor to be connected to the older 9v battery box by extension wire in a very tight fit with little room to spare. DSB Litra Gs (I) Danish State Railways (DSB) classic 2-axle covered wagons with sliding doors Litra Gs (I) were built in Denmark by Scandia in huge numbers (2.871) from the year 1953-1964. A few are still used today Scale: 1:50 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 518 Model built: 2013 The doors can be opened though not by sliding: Distance between the fixed wheels are 12 bricks and goes through points and curves ok but with some resistance: Access through the roof: DSB Gs (I) wagons pushed by DSB Køf:
