Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO Train TechBack when Bricklink allowed you to sell custom instructions, I bought some plans for a small 2-6-2 Prairie-type steam loco from @SavaTheAggie in January 2014. I devoured them, used the techniques shown to make me a better builder. Now, exactly ten years later, I've revisited the model: I built it in LDD, (with some stand-ins for BBB parts) then went to town making it into my style, and now it's done in the real world. You can see Sava's original MOC on his Flickr page here. I changed the boiler to be studs-up instead of SNOT, and removed the squeaky old tiny wheels from the model, and made space for XS Big Ben Bricks wheels instead. (this actually was easier than I thought it'd be!) I added a bigger headlight, and a different stack along with heavily revising the piston / side rod assembly. As for the tender, different wheels were added and a 'painted' box put on the sides. The engine is numbered 119 and lettered for BRS (Brick Railway Systems), my original LEGO railroad that I began when I was in late-stage elementary school nearly 20 years ago. (Man, how time flies!) I also gave it the original black-and-red paint scheme of my first train MOCs from the early 2010's, as a nod to my past. This loco was my third set of instructions I purchased from Sava back in the day, although I had never built this one until now. (I did build the 4-6-0 and Berkshire I bought in 2010 and 2012 respectively, but oddly not this one from 2014) The inside of the cab. Thoughts? (Updated with new 7 wide tender 1/29/24)
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
