  1. The 4-10-4 (four leading, ten driving, four trailing) "Rainhill" wheel arrangement was so named after the Rainhill Trials of October 1829 in Rainhill, England of which the famous Rocket was the only entrant to complete the Trials. The Rainhill type was designed in 1927 and built in early 1928, though it was originally called the "Gigantic" type, but the planned Centenary of Steam celebration sealed the deal on the naming of the type. (Unfortunately, the plans for the potential celebration were postponed in July 1928 and finally cancelled one day before the Stock Market Crash of 1929.) The steam locomotive prototype of the 4-10-4 Rainhill type was painted a red and gray color-scheme with a black box on the tender and was sold by Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1928 to Brick Railway Systems, but due to teething troubles was nicknamed the Red Devil. The engine worked the trans-continental route on the "Spirit of the West" passenger train from New York to Los Angeles, with the Red Devil or one of it's type worked the portion west from St. Louis to Las Vegas. The original engine (Red Devil number 7597) worked this route from 1930 until being bumped to freight duties in early 1958. The engine then worked freights in diminishing numbers until being sidelined in 1966. The Red Devil was pulled out of the mothballs in 1973 for potential use on the 1976 American Bicentennial train but politics intervened and Texas and Pacific 2-10-4 number 610 got the job instead. After that, the engine's future looked bleak until the "Save the Red Devil" Committee was formed which raised enough money to restore the engine to working order by 1978 and has kept the engine in working order ever since until the Red Devil Incorporated moniker. The 28-stud-long tender should say "Brick Railways Systems" in printed 1 x 1 tiles on both left and right sides, while the cab should have 7957 in the same style of 1 x 1 tiles. The cab of the locomotive should have this print on the 2 x 2 slope brick. In reality, there was no 4-10-4 type of steam locomotive. It was strangely skipped over in the age of steam... none of this wheel arrangement were ever built. The name Devil was chosen because the 4-14-4 type of Soviet Russia was the closest analogy to my loco... except mine works fine, while the Russian one never did much as it spread the track, ruined switches and pulled the freight cars' couplings apart due to it's raw power. The second reason for the name is the other Red Devil, a heavily modified South African 4-8-4 engine with a gas producing combustion system and many modern improvements. That engine worked beautifully, but was sadly mothballed in 2003. Here is the LDD file for the steam loco, if anyone else wants to built it in real bricks like I am planning on doing early next year. Comments, Questions, Complaints, and Suggestions are always welcome!
  2. 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!
  3. Lungorthin the devil

    Hello there. One day I decided to remake Lava Beast, but something go wrong and this evil looking guy appeared. Hope you enjoy, any comments welcome!
  4. Three new additions to and one old minifigure from my display collection. The rear two devils are modded Nexo Knight villains. The front right devil is one I have had for a while. The green devilkin is a recent joiner. I've had the green head and matching hair piece for some time but hadn't worked out how best to use them until a few weeks ago. Questions, comments, concerns?
  5. Three MOC minifigs of visitors from Hades. The one on the left I've had for years but gave him the voodoo doll not long ago. The one on the right, I've had for a while but not photographed before. The one in the middle is brand new using the latest BrickWarriors wings in orange. Apologies for the rubbish photography. My only camera is my phone which dates back to the Stone Age.
  6. A couple of my fantasy minifigs. I've had the Devil one for a while but the Hawkman is a new addition. He's not supposed to be the DC superhero. I imagine him belonging to a race akin to the Hawk Men in Flash Gordon but with aquiline heads and feathered lower legs for greater maneuverability. They live in a high mountain kingdom similar to the Eagle Tribe in Legend of Chima.
