    Cutting baseplates?

    (I've put this in Town because I wasn't sure where else to put it.) So I'm trying to assemble a 64x32 layout around standard 32x32 baseplates, and (long story) I have a left-over 48x48 light bley baseplate that I can't see any immediate use for. I know this will offend purists, but I'm wondering if it might be easier (and cheaper) to cut the 48x48 into a 32x48 and a 16x48, and then cut the latter into a 16x32 and leftover 16x16. Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to how to go about this? All of the joins will be covered, but they will be adjacent to other baseplates so there can't be any scope for overlap. Does anyone have any ideas?
  2. I make alterations to minifigures sometimes, but a lot of the time, I simply find myself adding accessories that the characters didn't originally have in their sets. I've tried mentioning them in topics aimed at general minifigure customization, but I've gotten little to no response there, so I thought I'd make a place dedicated to that idea. Below are some examples of my own accessory additions, or images that inspired me to alter the accessories. When I saw the Green Lantern lantern that Sheldon is holding in the image below, I thought that it was much closer to the scale of minifigures than the one offered in the Green Lantern set, itself. I also became curious if I could make that same design in any other colors with existing pieces, so I looked up the four pieces used to make it, and I discovered that I could also make red, blue, yellow, black, and white lanterns. My Hal Jordan now has a much smaller personal lantern battery, and I made one in yellow for my Sinestro as well. I also gave Hal and Sinestro translucent studs on their hands in their respective colors to represent glowing rings. When I saw the Teen Titans Robin from the Jokerland set, and I saw what they gave him for his bo staff (a black lightsaber blade), I was unsatisfied with both the length and color. I wondered if the old longer rod with narrower stop came in the newer version of grey, and I found it, so I'm using that now, and it works perfectly. I don't like the ADU guns used for the Super Heroes themes whenever a non-space-based minifigure needs a gun, and I liked the old black guns used in the Indiana Jones theme, so I was very excited when Lego brought them back for use with Sabine from Rebels, so I bought a bunch of those from B&P and I use them with my Avengers Black Widow, my USM Nick Fury, and I'll give one to any normal human character in the future to whom Lego gives an ADU gun. Speaking of Black Widow and ADU guns, that's what they give her in the Age of Ultron sets, though her shock sticks are arguably more iconic to that movie, so I wonder why they didn't give her those. I got the idea to give her trans light blue lightsaber blades for them, because that's the color normally used to represent electricity, and then I see this image on the Marvel Super Heroes minisite, which shows that piece used for that purpose. That made me more confident about that choice. The Winter Soldier minifigure doesn't come with any weapons in his package, but I wanted him to have a sniper rifle of some sort, so I gave him a blaster rifle that's used in Star Wars sets. None of the Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade sets have the Holy Grail, which is what they're hunting in that movie, so I gave my Indiana Jones minifigure a gold goblet piece for that, along with the other two small pieces I gave him to represent the other movies in the trilogy (I gave a crystal skull piece to my Mutt Williams minifigure, if anyone's curious). I'd love to see what other ideas anyone else came up with. Please share, but focus on the accessories here. There are other places to post the minifigures, themselves.
  3. Here is an idea i wanted to test for a while, maybe it is not the correct place to post this, but i think technic fans might like this the most. The "air-tank" is not Lego obviously, it is a converted fire extinguisher, made to be pressurized by a bicycle pump. Don't take it too seriously, it was just something fun I had to try ;)
  4. I need to take the print of the lower two pockets, and nothing else, off of the below torso for a custom WS civilian Steve Rogers I'm making, but I'm not sure how to go about it. I've heard that pencil erasers work, but I don't know how precise that method would be. I've also heard about Brasso, but I'm not sure I want to buy a whole bottle, even a small one, just for one project. I had the idea of Goo Gone on a Q-Tip, but I'm not sure if that'd work. I'd really appreciate some suggestions from seasoned customizers, since this is my first non-purist custom minifigure. Here's the torso: I'll post the finished minifigure here when I have the rest of the parts.
  5. Hey all, I don't usually build much Technic, but this model slipped through the cracks. I wanted to make a simple RC car that was fun and easy to drive. This post is kind of one and a half MoCs... the Morgan is actually my second attempt at such; the first was a freelance car I called the .I used the RC motor because it was fast, and I had one. I used conventional RC equipment because I don't like the tradeoffs made on either of the PF controllers, and I wanted a bigger rechargeable battery. The GT1 drove well, but the unconventional suspension setup took up a ton of space, leaving the electronics hanging out and the trim hanging by just a couple studs... the exposed drive train also broke at least two old 16T gears. Thus, I built this car in response to those issues. The prototype is a 1935 Morgan Super Sports; I didn't try to model it exactly, rather, to save on parts and weight, I tried to outline it in the way that 80s and 90s Technic outlines vehicles, and I think it worked out pretty well. The hardest bit was probably suggesting that the body ends in a circle, which still doesn't quite come across. I'm using a 7.2v, 1600mAh NiMH battery hooked up to a cheapo "waterproof" ESC and an ancient Futaba two channel reciever. A chopped 9v cable is plugged onto the ESC to drive the RC motor. The three wheeled setup makes it easy to have indepedent suspension and enough space to not have the electronics floating around. It also eliminates the need for an exposed drivetrain. It's pretty entertaining to drive, mainly because you can drift on dirt or flip it if you aren't careful. That being said I'm happy that it's generally robust enough to survive flips without losing too many parts, but it's the fastest way to chew up your bricks. Video: Brickshelf: Have a nice day!
