Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Train TechThis 2-6-2 Prairie type engine was inspired by the My Own Train series of 2001 and a boiler from set 79111 (Constitution Train Chase). The passenger coaches and baggage car were inspired by set 10015 (Passenger Wagon), and set 10194 (Emerald Night). They feature no interior but all three passenger cars have four opening doors. The baggage car has two opening doors, two sliding panel-doors and an "exploding" back wall inspired by set 79111. (Constitution Train Chase). The whole train together. Here we can see the rear of the train with the back wall (and dynamite) still in place. (You may notice the baggage car is a modified version of the green Western jail car I already have built) The yellow 1 x 4 bricks used are actually supposed to be green printed bricks with this on them. The tender features a coal bunker, and water tank, plus a ladder at the rear for accesses to the passenger train. The cab features a firebox door (a 2 x 2 round tile) and two printed gauge tiles. The coaches were inspired by set 10015 (Passenger Wagon), and set 10194 (Emerald Night). They feature no interior but all three passenger cars have four opening doors. The exploding baggage car was originally the Jail car from set 79111. (Constitution Train Chase) while gaining the styling of set 10015 (Passenger Wagon) and doors from 10194. (Emerald Night) This car has one play feature that is sure to blow you away: the back wall can be removed to get at the baggage compartment via the "dynamite" on the outside of the back wall. (actually, the roof top lever knocks the wall loose) Then your train robbers can make off with whatever valuable are inside! As usual, the LDD file for the whole train is seen here while the loco and tender by themselves are here. Comments, Questions, Complaints, & Suggestions are always welcome. This train is on my to-do list, but won't be built for a while... maybe this summer?
Hi everybody ! Today I present to you one of my latest and biggest creation : Plum Creek (the Ingalls' house) from the famous TV show : Little House on the Prairie. -The TV show relates us the story of a pionneer family : the Ingalls. Charles and Caroline have three daughters, Mary, Laura and Carrie. Charles builds their house at Plum Creek, a place not far from the village Walnut Grove. The family settle here and live many different adventures through 9 seasons and more...- I started this project one year and a half ago. The first stage was to find how to do the walls of the house. I wanted to get something strong and with a "planks effect". The way I did it is not very complicated : some SNOT did the job Then I had not many troubles to finished the house, and build the rest of the farm (such as the barn). I wanted to have on this MOC some elements that I judged amblematic of the show : the stream, the carriage, a big tree... I really wanted to do the house and the barn as close as possible to the real ones, and I'm quite pleased with the result The final stage was to "design" the minifigs. What would be the house without great minifigs of the family members to go with Except for Charles (thanks to the Hobbit ), I didn't find torsos which suit the pioneer girls. Therefore, I had to draw it myself For that, I used the tutorial on EB (I don't find it anymore...), but I agree with you to say that it isn't great art I create a Lego Ideas project. It would be really nice from you to support and share it : Link Well, enough talking, hee are the pictures : First some pictures of the real buildings : Some general pics : Plum Creek - The Little House on the Prairie by SeigneurFett, sur Flickr Thanks to TheBrickAvenger for this picture editoring Plum Creek - The Little House on the Prairie by SeigneurFett, sur Flickr Plum Creek - The Little House on the Prairie by SeigneurFett, sur Flickr Plum Creek - The Little House on the Prairie by SeigneurFett, sur Flickr Plum Creek - The Little House on the Prairie by SeigneurFett, sur Flickr More details (and inside the house) in spoiler : The carriage (one of the element that I had a lot of fun to build ^^) : The Ingalls are coming soon ! by SeigneurFett, sur Flickr Plum Creek - The Little House on the Prairie by SeigneurFett, sur Flickr And finally the figs : from left to right : Jack (the dog), Charles, Caroline, Mary, Laura and Carrie : Plum Creek - The Little House on the Prairie by SeigneurFett, sur Flickr Plum Creek - The Little House on the Prairie by SeigneurFett, sur Flickr Hope you'll like it :sweet: Comments and critics are welcome SeigneurFett
