    [MOC] Miniature Steam Machines

    Hi everyone This is the first time I've posted a MOC in the train forum and although these models are not trains, they are still locomotives of a sort and I thought this would appeal to train and especially steam fans. "Miniature Steam Machines" is my collection of 3 steam engines designed at a small scale. I set myself a challenge to see if I could build these little engines using a very limited amount of bricks but still maintaining a decent level of detail. They are all very small. The biggest of the 3 models only contains 128 bricks. Traction Engine The Traction Engine is the smallest of the 3 models and only uses 82 bricks. The basic structure of this model forms the basis for all three models and this one in particular is intended to represent a miniature version of my LEGO IDEAS project, The Old Workhorse - Traction Engine. Steam Roller The second model is a steam roller and this one is made from 109 bricks. Showman's Engine The third model is a Showman's Engine. This model is the biggest of the 3 and contains 128 bricks. I designed these mini models to act as a sort of side project and to help promote my LEGO IDEAS model called "The Old Workhorse - Traction Engine". This a much bigger and more detailed model. Here is a picture showing the mini models alongside the Old Workhorse. If you're interested in reading more about The Old Workhorse then it has its own topic here on Eurobricks. The Old Workhorse - Traction Engine If you like the model I'd also be massively grateful if you could please vote for it over on LEGO IDEAS at the following link. https://lego.build/2vRfVGL Many thanks for reading and I hope you like these models.
  2. Hello Everyone, this is my first post here, so apologies if I made any mistakes! I was going to post this model on Lego Ideas, but (not surprisingly) Game of Thrones is not suitable content for them, so I decided to post it here and see what you guys think. This is a (not so small) scale model of the castle of Winterfell from George R. R. Martin's epic fantasy novel series A Song of Ice and Fire, and more specifically, a model of the castle as it appeared in HBO's award winning tv series Game of Thrones. In the series, Winterfell acts, (most of the time) as the home of house Stark, one of the main noble families in the fictional land of Westeros. Winterfell is seen often throughout the series, and stood out to me among all the other places in Westeros, not just because of its prominent role, but because of its unique design and architecture. Many of the castles we see in movies and on tv look amazing, with their numerous gold turrets, towers, large windows, and vast balconies, but all these features make the castles relatively unrealistic in an actual medieval setting. It is because Winterfell lacks these common features on fictional castles that it stood out to me so much. In the real medieval era, most castles were not very opulent, and had pretty plain, utilitarian exteriors. If you think about this, it makes quite a bit of sense, as putting all your wealth on the outside of your castle meant it could be damaged or stolen if you are attacked. I know, I know, most fantasy tv shows and movies aren't going for historical accuracy, including Game of Thrones, (I love seeing dragons flying around as much as the next guy) but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate when the creators do make things look as though they actually might in the given time period. I based this model off of the scale desktop model of Winterfell you can buy online (just search google for: Winterfell sculpture, and you'll see a few pages with it), and it includes all the main features of the castle, including the Winterfell Godswood, with the Weirwood tree and broken tower. I am quite pleased with the way the Weirwood tree turned out, its a new design that I haven't used before, maybe some of you have, but I hadn't, and so was quite pleased when I came up with it. Despite my best efforts, this is a large model, measuring approximately 2 feet by 1 foot, and comprised of 3046 pieces. If any of you want to build the model, a link at the bottom of this description will bring you to a folder with the full size images of the model, a bricklink parts list, a .io model file for the Stud.io lego design program (my personal favorite), and a .ldr model file for use with Ldraw. I do not have a .lxf file for use in Lego Digital Designer, as this model uses some newer bricks not in that program, so I apologize for not being able to offer that to those of you who use LDD. If you do build the model, please send me some pictures of it! As with my Hogwarts model, I don't have enough pieces to actually build it, so it would be awesome to see a real model if any of you are more fortunate with your LEGO collections than I am :). Also, feel free to share this with anyone you want and post images of it, as long as you remember to give credit to me as the model's creator, and provide a link back to this post. I will most likely be posting this model on Rebrickable as well, but I need to create instructions for it before I can do that, and that's the boring part of model making, so I'm procrastinating it :), A link to my Rebrickable page where you will eventually be able to find it will be posted beneath this description as well. And finally, here is the link to that folder with all the files mentioned above: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1pb0hN4USgPyKzkSvDyXeKFhb4Nkczwxq?usp=sharing and to my Rebrickable MOCs page: https://rebrickable.com/users/EthanBrossard/mocs/ and here are the images! winterfell lego with logo3 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #0 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #1 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #2 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #3 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #4 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #5 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #6 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #7 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #8 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #9 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #10 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #11 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #12 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #13 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #14 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #15 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #16 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego #17 small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr winterfell lego - winter small by Ethan Brossard, on Flickr Thank you in advance for any feedback/advice!

    MOC Belfast Skyline [LDD]

    This is my addition to the Skyline series, a version of my home city Belfast. I have tried to design it to be as close to the official sets as possible in both its size and level of detail. Like the six official sets, it contains four major landmarks, which have been designed to be in proportion (as far as possible) with each other. This image was rendered from Digital Designer, as some of the pieces which would be needed do not exist in the required colours, there is also a space for the printed Belfast name plate. From left to right, they are; 1) Belfast City Hall The smallest building in the set, the City hall features some sand green elements which (to my knowledge) do not yet exist. There are many memorials and statues in the grounds of the building, but I have chosen to represent the most prominent one which is of Queen Victoria. 2) Samson and Goliath The two cranes which stand in the Harland and Wolff ship yard, in reality they are in fact different sizes, but I have chosen to make them the same height. In reality they would need printed "H & W" elements to complete them. 3) Titanic Belfast The museum to the RMS Titanic is the third building and would also need a printed "Titanic" sign on the brown piece. Beside it is the SS Nomadic, a vessel from the same era as Titanic which acts as a small museum. 4) The Obel Complex Obel Tower is Belfast's (and Ireland's) tallest building, so it was a natural choice for the set, the curved pieces for the windows do not exist in trans. blue. Outside is what locals call the 'Big Fish', an art installation. Thanks for looking, and all comments and constructive criticism are welcome!
  5. Hi guys! Here's a demonstration model I built to show the potential of Buwizz. There were several goals for this model: Keep it small and light Gearing should be as simple and efficient as possible - ended up using a 40 tooth gear powering the older style differential, getting a 40/:16 gear ratio Advanced steering solution - pivot point is inside the wheel and the car is using ackermann steering geometry for best possible steering and efficiency Use Buwizz as a structural support - not only does the Buwizz power and control the car, it also helds it together Working steering wheel and openable doors - have them too Here's the result: In the gif below you can see the way the car is built and how the steering system works The end result is a very fast and maneuverable car that faces same problems as the big ones. Its actually so fast, that its easy to understeer at high speed or oversteer when accelerating. Controling it at high speed can be very hard, but thanks to Buwiz's different speed modes you can easily slow down the car. This is very usefull for parking or precise maneuvering. To finish up with a bang, here's a video: If there will be enough demand I will create an LDD model of this little speed devil
