  1. The engines were Inspired by Facebook user Leonard Blevins' diesel engine, from which I built my own version. I think it looks like a Electro-Motive Division F40PH, which was (in real life) mainly built for Amtrak. Also, the letters BRS go on the side of the cab below the windows on the 3 exposed studs, while the number of the engine (8773 for example,) go on the 4 studs below the windows. Also, I know there is no such thing as a B unit for a F40PH. But since this is pretty much fictional already, I added one. I colored the engine the way it is to compliment set 60052: Cargo Train. As the engine in the set is freight, this one is passenger based. I even kept the windows the same light blue color, and yellow warning stripes on the cab end to compliment each other. Speaking of the cab, the roof is removable to place the engineer inside at the controls. This also increases play-ability. Here we see the F40PH's front. I added safety stripes because they looked nice, and I had some spares I thought would look nice there. The whole build was inspired by this piece from Leonard Blevins diesel: http://alpha.brickli...age?P=30022#T=C Here is the view inside the cab with the roof removed. (sorry for the blurry picture!) The B unit does not have a removable roof, or interior, for that matter. the rear of the engine features a walkway to the train. Here is the fancy sloped rear observation car of the express passenger train. The passenger cars are not yet ordered. LDD file for the engine by itself: Well, what do you think? EDIT: added train cars, new engine and new ldd file. If a MOD could change the title to "F40PH diesels with express passenger train" it would be much appreciated. EDIT #2: change train color to blue and added new ldd file. EDIT #3: Added real life pictures!
  2. Behold: the diesel units that broke the back of the steam engines... Built by General Motors (GM) / Electro Motive Division (EMD) in 1939, this is the diesel that showed the way to the future, signaling the start of the diesel era. However, as one day must start, another must end. This two A & two B locomotive set got the ball rolling towards the end of steam as mainline workhorses (and eventually regulated to excursion trains, infrequent freight moves, and museums) by pulling a modern two steam engines backwards - while said engines were at full forward throttle. Anyway, this particular engine was originally owned by Electro-Motive as a demonstrator. It was sold to Southern Railway and eventually the cab unit was placed in the Museum of Transportation in St. Louis, Missouri. It was repainted in it's original Electro Motive colors for it's journey to Railfair '91 held in Sacramento, California. It is currently on display once more in the St. Louis Museum of Transportation. The B unit was given to the Virginia Museum of Transportation, and was also present at the 1991 rail fair. It is currently on loan to the St. Louis Museum for connection with the original A unit for five years (in return for the loan of 2-8-8-2 steam Norfolk & Western 2156 to Roanoke) Front view. Please note, all the printed tiles are missing from the engine. The numbers "103" should go near thew windscreen, while "ELECTRO MOTIVE" should go on the sides of the cab unit. The initials "GM" should go on the nose of the engine, on top of those two yellow 1x2 jumpers. rear view. I want to use this part for the exhaust fans instead of the ones shown: http://alpha.brickli...P=15535pb01#T=C Here are the units in McCook Illinois 1989. (NOT my picture, I just found it on Flickr. Photo taken by user Bill Johnson) The LDD file is available: http://www.mocpages....1437180710m.lxf Comments, questions, and complaints are welcome! EDIT: You are probably wondering why I dragged this model out of the dark abyss known as my hard-drive: I needed the model to be updated to the standard set by my Santa Fe Bluebonnet engines so i can carefully consider which to get... if either at all. EDIT #2: I forgot to add this to the LDD file / pictures, but it should be pretty easy to figure out how to build it. This plaque is supposed to have this printed on it: This clip-and-tile setup is supposed to replicate the National Engineering Landmark plaque on EMD FT 103's A Unit. it is usually placed on the rear doorway, and clips onto the two railings beside the door, whereupon it fits quite well. (just like the real thing) I don't have the plaque 's wording memorized and can't seem to find it on the web. You'll just have to visit the engine yourself in St. Louis to find out what it says!
  3. How do you take down a superhero? Team up with other supervillains, obviously. The sinister six go after Spider Man when he's most vulnerable, will they catch the spider in his own web or will they be too clustered by their own kind to even make a budge at him? Directed, Animated, Written, and Music composed by Tristan Kilmer Starring Mike Joseph as Spider Man Will Murphy as Kraven the Hunter Josh Lambright as Stan Lee Sean Polite as Black Manta and Lex Luthor Bret Newton as Captain Marvel Coulter Rail as Plastic Man How did Spider Man end up where he is? Check it out in this film: What were Captain Marvel and Plastic man up to? Find out in this film: Thanks for watching!
  4. First of all, an enormous thank you to my good friend Josh (armoredgear7) for doing a fantastic job editing the photos. This was built after seeing the Amazing Spider-man 2 movie. Since it was for Brickworld, big and complex were two adjectives that were prevalent in my mind. The creation includes all three of Spider-man's villains from the movie, Electro, Green Goblin and of course the Rhino, which I posted as a <a href="">teaser</a> earlier this year. Although certainly tough, it was a fun build, and from the compliments I got at both Brickworld and Brickfete, it was apparently a very enjoyable site. The full interview and scope of the build can by seen on my (I apologize, my ego seems to know no bounds :P).

Thanks for stopping by true believers, and prepare for more stuff soon! Also, thanks to my awesome friends from ToroLUG. I couldn't have done it without you. Maybe next year I'll build something more stable... Available to view on flickr. Excelsior!
  5. With the release of the Spider-Trike vs. Electro, many fans have been overwhelmed to see a minifigure of Electro. However the main build in the set has garnered a substantial amount of negative publicity. So, for those of us who do not plan to build the set once we get it, what would you say would be a good alternate build for the set? You may use up to 2 copies of the set (the vehicle alone should not cost a lot) and perhaps use a couple of other parts (nothing too rare please) Hope to see some great builds! -Godtshep.
