  1. In my quest to improve the diffusion of my instructions all over the world (;) I just uploaded a video-instructions for that model on youtube. If it's popular and people like it, I publish more video like that in the future. In the meanwhile you watch the video here: https://youtu.be/lM9DGfVrtDE Build well and tell me if you enjoy.
  2. [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!
  3. 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. My model is in a "transport - soldier mode"because I' ve projected it to carrier a maximum of 6 soldiers. Here you can find the video presentation on YouTube : Please Leave a Like and Support my channel by Subscribing :)
  4. 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.

  5. 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!
  6. [MOC] WWII Fury

    This diorama shows a scene from Fury movie. It's a moment before Sherman tank crew attack approaching German infantry. In the movie this was the last battle where damaged Sherman tank defends the crossroad.
  7. Hi all, It has been a long time since I presented my project Dora: German railway gun 800mm. I have now completed the diorama (or at least the first section), I hope you like the result. E 'it completed by 2 SDKF-Z, 1 panzer TIGER, 1 Raupenschlepper. I really like the final outcome, and I hope it's the same for you Full View: Front view: Panzer Tiger 1: Raupenschlepper: Opel Blitz destroyed by aviation: SDKF-z Units:
  8. for a future exposhow, I prepare a little scene about 1870 First, here are the French, I will dot some german next time
  9. 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: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/127875. 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.
  10. Jagdpanzer 38(t) 'Hetzer'

    Hey guys, Never posted in this topic before so here we go... I was inspired when playing World of Tanks to recreate a tank from the game and behold... Lego Jagdpanzer 38(t) 'Hetzer' by Tom Gray, on Flickr (sorry for pic quality) Those tankers among you may have noticed there is a pair of wheels missing. Is this too obvious? Any criticisms welcome
  11. [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!
  12. Deutsche Bahn Regio Express!

    Hello all, As you all have seen I have completed on LDD a German BR 112 E Lok as well as 3 Passenger N wagen cars. I put them all together as one build on LDD 3,402 pieces total. I am pleased with how they turned out so all i need to do is order the pieces. Easier said then done, for some reason on all my builds LDD is not listing parts number for the pieces just a quantity. Between Bricklink and pick a brick I have not found one seller where I can buy all the parts at once. Does anyone recommend how I go about this? Also if anyone knows were I can find a diagram of all lego pieces with their parts number, makes looking for all these alot easier. I also would like to apologize for starting three different topics/threads, which are all wrapped into one.

  13. Here is my third LDD build. Here is the German BR 112 E Lok. If your interested in learning more about this particular E Lok follow the description (https://en.wikipedia...#DBAG_Class_114) This build is 8 wide and about 12 high. Im acually very pleased how this turned out. Anyone have any comments, or ideas to improve this please let me know.
  14. Hello, I am new to the forum and am really glad to see such enthusiastic builders here! I am new to LDD (just downloaded it Wednesday), and wanted to build something I have not seen built before, that would be the German Deutsche Bahn Passenger car N-Wagen (Silberling). About 8 hours on LDD and I have built a total of 3 Wagens, another 6 hours on top of that I built a BR111 engine for it as well. Again these are my first builds, so I know they could use some work. If anyone has any ideas, compliments or suggestions to make it better please let me know. There is a total of almost 3,000 pieces, and I have not even completed the interior of any of the cars! I currently don't have access to my laptop to attach picture or instructions, but will have them posted within t next 24 hrs. Now in terms of ordering all the pieces from one source, where do you recommend I go to purchase parts, I know when I purchase this kit it will more then likely cost a few hundred dollars. v/r Sebastian59
  15. [MOC] WWII Tiger I

    Tiger I was a German heavy tank of World War II. Here is my version. The crew.
  16. 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)
  17. 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 (https://ideas.lego.com/projects/133465). 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
  18. Lego Volkswagen T1 Transporter

    This is a realistic version of the famous Volkswagen T1. This is a transport for goods, not people, so it doesn't have windows. It has: - 4 openable doors Imagine traveling the world in this thing! Check out the pictures here:
  19. Civil model of the Bell UH-1N Twin Huey. This example was used by the German Federal Ministry of the Interior for air rescue and ambulance services. Model features a detailed interior, rotating main and tail rotors with adjustable blade pitch, opening crew cabin doors, and sliding main cabin doors with swing open forward auxiliary main doors.
  20. DB BR 24 & Donnerbuschen

    (Please excuse the low quality of the photos, my camera's in the shop so all I'm able to use is my phone ) I really like German Steam quite a lot, although one of the main problems with it is that many of the engines I'd like to build are too big both for my apartment and my budget (Looking at you, DRG 03 ), so I decided to put together one of my favorite German steamers: the BR 24. It's small enough that it'll look nice on standard Lego curves and not dwarf my current rolling stock. As one may be able to notice, the design is pretty much "Ben" Beneke's BR 24 with some modifications, including BBB medium drivers in place of the 12V large train wheels, functioning siderods via Zephyr, and a few other replacements/substitutions for older out of print parts. Other than that it's mainly based on his design for the most part. I'm considering redesigning the tender so I can fit a 9V motor in there so the engine is powered. To complement the BR 24, I designed a pair of Donnerbuchsen (Thunderbox) for the engine to pull. They were originally used for light commuter traffic and were fairly common during 1930s/40s Germany. I haven't figured out an interior design I'm happy with yet, so I'm holding off from posting it here. I'm not sure if I like how the black stripe breaks up the sides, but it is prototypical to some of the coaches. The 6-wide body and 7-wide roof really gives that overhang looks, which looks pretty nice in person. I'm working on a design for a baggage car to complete the set, but I'm tinkering with 9V and PF motors to see how much I can fit in while keeping it fast enough to push/pull it all. The two-car set still looks fine though! Let me know what you guys think!

  23. Greetings from Denmark

    Hello everyone! My name is Lars and I am all new in this forum. I have a very special agenda for being here - which I hope is allowed in this forum, since I couldn't find anything about it in the guidelines. Please, inform me, if I am out of line :) I am interested in getting in touch with AFOLs with an interest in the localisation / translation business. Preferably, I am looking for 2-3 AFOLs who are working as professional translators from English (EN) to German (DE) I may have a very interesting upcoming project... sounds interesting, right? If you are interested, please contact me here on the forum. Kind regards Lars Bjerrum
  24. Paderstadt

    I have here a few pictures of my Lego town (Everyone has to have some sort of Lego city ). It's not the best, and is certainly a WIP, as you'll see. It's based off of a fictional version of the town of Paderbourne, where my Graphic novel and films are set in. I built the main locations of the films, plus some town essentials. Let's get started with an overview! It is fairly packed in the center, but the 'outskirts' of the town are sparse for now. I'll give a quick zoom in onto each building, and provide a screenshot of the 'real thing' too, if there is one. First is the blue house, General Vogel's. In the film, it appears very different, but this is what it'll look like in the novel, I based it off of what images I could find of German buildings, like these ones: When I get a chance, i'll post some more interesting photos of the interior and the small party going on. Next is a typical Lego house, white and red roofed: I really like the design of the creator houses, and I tried to copy a basic version of their designs. Sadly, I didn't make the house very accessible and i'll have to dismantle it to get inside In the darkness brought on by the shelves at the back is a nice, simple garden. It even has a fountain, made by three bricks, including a flick-fire missile. I'm going to build a fire station just opposite this house, and maybe a café on the other side of the road, but space is tight. Next is the star building of the films/novel, the Clinic! It 'belongs' to Edward, who is the main character, a low-budget doctor who's trying to get by in the war. He never finished medical school, but does his best to earn money in the town. He's the one in the foreground on the white motorcycle. If I had that Ron Weasley hair, it'd be much better for him! Anyways, here is a shot of the 'real' clinic. I only included the main part of the Clinic, which is where the building title is in that picture. I think I reproduced the general look of the building pretty well, and the interior will be closely matched too, but it's not made at the moment. Please don't ask me why it's called that, because I myself no longer remember why . Moving swiftly along to the upper part of town, which is in progress, 'Black Market way'. What a mess.. the building on the right will be a wooden shed, the Black Market. I could only find this bad picture: The building further up is the Taverne Fur Betrukene, which will have a brown base, and grey top for the windows. I'll also use either skeleton legs or those white 1x4 fences for the fence, i'm not sure which would look better. Finally, for the moment, is where the train station will be: I haven't really done too much with this yet, but there will be a train station, and on the side of the tracks on the right, there will be a Poker club, the base of the Resistance. I'll post more pictures once i make more progress on the town! Please leave me some CC on what to do, and what things the town could use to improve it, i'd really appreciate it. Are there any sets under €45 that would make a good addition? I'm thinking of a creator set maybe with birthday money.. Axle
  25. 1940's German Car

    So after not having created any Lego cars for say.. 6 years, here's my first attempt :P It's based off of what one of those Citroen cars from WWII looks like, but I only had my head to imagine it, so it isn't very like it in the end. But i'm happy with it's looks! It's for Captain Gunther Von Stauff, a character from my films, and my future graphic novel. Again, please excuse the camera quality, I only have a phone at the moment for pictures :( Here's the rear, with a boot to boot! It opens, revealing Gunther's equipment: binoculars, a pistol, and handcuffs. It has a larger to small side profile, the front being chunkier than the smooth rear. I should probably fix this! Due to lack of door parts, I constructed some myself, and they open nicely enough. Gunther's also kitted the car with some luxurious dark tan leather seats! Don't let the 4-wide windscreen fool you, it actually fits two people inside comfortably: Another view of the two-seating. Thanks for looking! Please leave a comment and feedback on what I could do to improve! Axle
