  1. This will be the tread where i will share all my mils mocs. MILS is a standart where you have modules that follow a certain standart. For further info about MILS read here: lets start with three mocs that have been converted to mils: hope you like these! more coming soon!
  2. Here's some narrow gauge track I've been working on as research for a LUG project. None of these models use 3rd-party parts, which will be a big help at a show when someone asks "Is this all Lego?" First, some straight track: The track on the left uses the straight rail piece, whereas the one on the right uses ordinary tiles held in clips. The gauge is very slightly smaller (20.8mm vs 21.33mm), but trains still run smoothly on it. Incidentally: the rail, the 1x4x1 fence, and the 1x4x2 fence have a rare dimension of 1/3 of a stud. I used the tile-in-clips technique to make an adapter rail for the narrow gauge curves: There are 4 studs of lead-in, of which 1 stud is taken up by the tabs on the curve track. A 1x1x1 panel takes up part of the gap on the outer rail; without it, wheels can drop into the gap and derail. Of course I ballasted a curve... ... and combined two curves into a module: The 4-stud lead-in gives the track an effective radius of 28 studs (centerline). This works out nicely for having a narrow-gauge track take up the outermost 8 studs on a MILS module. And finally, a major breakthrough: A reliable brick-built switch that does not use third party parts, and does not stress any parts! This reliably switches trains between two tracks 8 studs apart. Trains returning from the diverging tracks will "flip" the point instead of derailing, meaning it's possible make a reversing loop. Next up: Ballasting the switch and building locomotives!
  3. I finally finished my Lego castle display and put together this video to talk about it. I hope you enjoy it! Lego Medieval Display Video

    MILS tips and tricks - Educate me

    So this conversation began in a pm but It could be a benefit as an open discussion. If your not familiar with MILS then check it out here. So we all know MILS is parts intensive ... However it makes a nice sturdy base that can be packed up and taken from show to show. I have two tables for my interactive train yard to sit on. I need 56 32x32 bases so I plugged this into LDD to give me a BOM. I then plugged this into bricklink. It's roughly 1000 dollars worth of bricks and plates and I haven't even ballasted the track yet .... So educate me oh masters of MILS. What are the tips and tricks on not breaking the bank just on everything below the tracks lol
  5. Cactus Brick will be putting on a Western Display at the 2018 Phoenix Comic Fest this week. To prepare for the display, we had a building competition to encourage creative thinking. Yesterday we held the competition and voted on our favorites. Here are some pictures of my entry to the display. Come check out the rest of the display this week in Phoenix. More pictures on Flickr
  6. Last weekend, april 14th-15th, Hispalug organized the Catbrick 2018 in Pallejà (a small town very close to Barcelona) introducing "Vila Brick Marina" "Vila Brick Marina " is a circuit built with nothing less than 286 baseplates 32x32, where 264 are MILS modules.

    City Gate

    After having build the Lekpoort (Gate to the river Lek) for an exibition in Vianen (NLD) I took apart the landscape but deciided to keep the gate building itself. I liked it a lot and thought it would work well in a new modular project. It is now part of the old citywall of Ankh-Morpork. To preserve its heritage I kept the twon flag. Also the small top tower has been added to keep up with the current looks of the building. the wall is expendable according to the MILS standards. i created my own standard for the wall to make it easier to connect other modules and keep them in line.

  8. Here's a quick overview of the MILS standard. For those who haven't heard it of it, it is a standard published by the Hispabrick magazine to help coordinate diorama building between Lego builders. It also is a great foundational tool for learning how to make more advanced builds. Hope you enjoy! I have other videos on my channel with instructions on how to make the various modules.
  9. I made tutorial video on how to make a MILS module. MILS is a standard that helps you to coordinate your building with other Lego builders. I also find it to be very helpful when building a sturdy foundation for your creations. I will be publishing a series of these videos so stay tuned for more instructions.
