  1. Adventurers Resupply Depot (v2) I took the "Old Fishing Store" Ideas set number 21310 and turned back the clock on it from a rundown fishing shop in the modern era to a modular 1920's supply depot for Johnny Thunder and his friends, also known as the Adventurers. I added a set 7596-style freight Crane that's a part of "Trash Compacter Escape" (a Toy Story 3 set). I revised the color scheme of the mainly dark bluish gray building instead of the original sand green, and removed a ton of the mixed bunch of colors that were used a "patch jobs" on the dock and building proper. I also removed the roof and redid it completely to be brick-built with slopes instead of plates and tiles at a cert ain angle. I even stripped the many windows styles off and replaced them with a single type. I added a warehouse section to the lower floor by sending one of the walls about 16 studs back, allowing for storage space for various equipment not yet designed. NOTE: The sign on the front on the building, just on top of the awning should have these two GREAT WEST printed parts (showing off the name of the depot), while inside the blue poster should feature one of theses two RADIATOR SPRINGS prints on top and bottom. The back wall of the building shows off the new wall art placed on the roof section of the building: a giant propeller from a ship of some kind. This gives the dock a gritty, downtown, waterfront industrial feel, at least to me. The yellow square is supposed to have this electricity danger tile print. The back wall now opens in one single section, but the inside is a rough estimate. Some parts I already have from my previous depot model from almost 1 1/2 years ago, such as the safe, radio and various maps. Also, the two freight loading doors actually open and shut quite nicely. The model comes apart into four sections, with the main roof, tower, tower roof, and main building + dock all separating from each other. The crane was totally copied from my previous depot model, which itself was duplicated and color-changed from the dark green / white one in the Toys Story 3 set I mentioned earlier. Original depot design is in the SPOILER tag: Steam tramp freighter EASTERN STAR I built this 103-stud long 1920's Adventurers tramp steam ship from two Adventurers sets: I used the boat from set 5975 (T-Rex Transport) and modified slightly to resemble set 5976 (River Expedition). The ship features a lifeboat, steering wheel, and a smoke-stack plus I have the bridge with removable roof for the top deck of the ship, and captain's quarters for the lower floor. I also have signs on the front of the ship spelling out the name of the vessel: the Eastern Star. The ladders hanging on the side of the lower deck lead the way to the ship's bridge on the upper level. The life boat is also back here. Here you can see inside the ship's bridge (upper deck) and captain's quarters. (lower level) Some of the recent cargo of the Eastern Star includes: - a gyro-copter - silver ingots and coins - silver and gold nuggets - Dynamite (the accompanying plunger is in the Captain's Quarters / map room) - Ancient spears - the real Maltese Falcon - the Burma Chicken (long-lost cousin to the Falcon) - two halves of a long-lost pirate's treasure map - Money - large rough-cut ruby - poison bottles - antidote bottles - and many other items! Bi-wing pontoon plane THUNDER BLAZER Fly farther and higher than ever before with the Adventurers and their Pontoon bi-plane! This vintage style airplane features two re-purposed kayaks for floats, and dual shotguns for forward-facing protection from the forces of Lord Sam Sinister, while the rear of the vehicle has a gunner's seat with rotating machine-gun turret. (Just be sure to not shoot off the tail of the plane while flying!) In reality, this model was heavily inspired by 2018 set 31076 (Daredevil Stunt Plane) with a gunner seat from set 7186 (Fighter Plane Attack) from 2009. The pontoon floats from kayaks were my own idea, and I think are used in a new and unique way. This model comes with rotating prop, seats for the pilot and gunner and swiveling machine gun turret. Seaplane ISLAND HOPPER What do you get when you combine an Adventurers seaplane, a Indiana Jones DC-3, and a Creator rip-off of the Seaduck from the TV show Tailspin? This model of course! The seaplane seen here is based off the 2008 Indiana Jones set 7628 (Peril In Peru), the 2017 Creator set 31064 (Island Adventures), along with inspiration from 2000 Adventurers set 5935 (Island Hopper) thrown in for good measure. The idea behind this model is to depict a updated version of one of my favorite classic LEGO themes: "Adventurers", but with modern techniques and parts using two of my favorites plane designs smashed together. The rear of the plane makes use of a Toy Story 3 printed 2 x 4 tile for a registration number. The plane has a interior that seats six people: 1 pilot and five passengers. The seats are accessible thought the removable roof / wings. Auto-Gyro LIGHTNING ROD In reality, this model was modified from set 70913 (Scarecrow Fearful Face-off) from the LEGO Batman Movie line. I added the classic two seat Adventurers cockpit piece which is usually used on land vehicles, plus a new set of vintage 2003 landing skids. This model also comes with red and green navigation lights and two independent propeller blades. The good guys: Adventurers (good guys) figures from left to right: -Madame Blue This Alaskan husky is the unofficial mascot for the Adventurers team. -Captain Karloff Owner and operator of the "Eastern Star" tramp steam ship, this captain has an eye for spotting the historical value in something that looks worthless. He always has a bag of cool items he's collected on beaches, sea-side markets, and ports around the globe on his person or nearby on his ship. -Jake Raines This young lad is a American student of Dr. Charles Kilroy's and expert at 5 spoken languages and 3 more written. Also has a knack for defeating ancient booby traps and disarming modern explosives. -Johnny Thunder Australian adventurer extraordinaire and friend to all those in need. Thunder first met Sam Sinister in 1917 when Sinister was in a field hospital for his hand amputation and Johnny was recovering from slight case of shell shock. They have been against each other ever since then. -Dr. Charles Kilroy Eccentric and slightly absent-minded English professor of history, archaeology, ancient languages, and about five other things including medicine. Kilroy is known as "Lightning" to his friends, as he enlightens the team in his own way and serves as a friend indeed. -Miss Pippin Reed This former lead reporter for Adventurer Times was reporting on a Dr. Kilroy's 1920 discovery of a copy of the Book of the Dead when she met Johnny Thunder at a dig site near Cairo, Egypt. They have all been good friends ever since. Also, Ms. Reed happens to be an better aviator than Johnny, a fact which she takes great pride in. She also operates the Island Hopper seaplane on most expeditions. -Mac McCloud Mac may be slightly clumsy, but is a genius when it comes to things of a mechanical nature. He keeps things working for the Adventurers team, such as lowering the steam pressure in the old and worn boilers on the tramp steamer "Eastern Star" and knocking loose engine parts back into place on the sea plane "Island Hopper". -Major Quentin Steele Former British Army officer (and Sinister's former commander, whom Sinister still hates today) This Monster Fighter lost his eye in 1912 due to a fight with a certain Werewolf, whom he later tracked down and defeated. He has signed on to Johnny Thunder's team as of 1925. The forces of evil Characters from right to left: - Lord Sam Sinister Brother of Alexis Sinister, and Lord of Sinister Manor. Sam lost his left hand in World War I while in the British Army. He later replaced it with a polished steel hook which is as cold as his heart. - Alexis Sinister The sister of Lord Sam Sinister is completely evil and slightly unhinged while being crack shot with any weapon. She hates Johnny Thunder to an extreme extent after he refused to join Sinister in his diabolical schemes. Last seen on Dino Island escaping to places unknown while the island was sinking. - Senor Palomar This South American crime lord is an associate of the Sinister family. He helped Sinister try and get the Sun Disk from the Amazon jungle, before losing it to Achoo, the ancient guardian of the disk. After that adventure, Palomar has fallen out of favor with Lord Sam Sinister, but he hopes to be in his good graces again soon. -Mister Graves A mysterious man of whom little is known. He sometimes is a ally of Lord Sinister and company, although are also enemies at times too. He is always seen with a gold lapel pin in the shape of a badge and a little black book of which he is almost constantly writing in. What is he writing? None have dared ask. EDIT 11/17/18: Added revised pictures of everything and edited text to the main post. enjoy! Comments, Questions & Complaints are always welcome!
  2. Fly farther and higher than ever before with the Adventurers and their Pontoon bi-plane! This vintage style airplane features two re-purposed kayaks for floats, and dual shotguns for forward-facing protection from the forces of Lord Sam Sinister, while the rear of the vehicle has a gunner's seat with rotating machine-gun turret. (Just be sure to not shoot off the tail of the plane while flying!) In reality, this model was heavily inspired by 2018 set 31076 (Daredevil Stunt Plane) with a gunner seat from set 7186 (Fighter Plane Attack) from 2009.

As usual, comments, questions, suggestions, and complaints are always welcome!
  3. This is a seaplane based off the 2008 Indiana Jones set 7628 (Peril In Peru), along with inspiration from 2000 Adventurers set 5935 (Island Hopper) thrown in for good measure. The idea behind this model is to depict a updated version of one of my favorite classic LEGO themes: "Adventurers". Anyway, this model has a story: Built in 1920 by Seaplane Solutions Incorporated for Aero-Sea Cargo Limited, a trans-Mediterranean shipping service headquartered in Alexandria, Egypt. Eventually, the main pilot (Harry Cane) realized what his usual cargo was: stolen Ancient Egyptian artifacts and sometimes even whole mummies in shipping crates. Knowing the Authorities would do nothing unless proof was given as to what was happening, Harry decided to fly his plane straight to the police with a stolen mummy inside. Needless to say, the police took the plane and the mummy and shut down Aero-Sea Cargo Limited. They tried to arrest the hook-handed owner, but he had fled the country. For his bravery, Harry got to keep the plane, and made a new friend: Johnny Thunder who was near the police station at the time of the arrests, looking for clues to a certain Ruby. Johnny went up to Mr. Cane and congratulated him, whereupon they became fast friends. The plane was not used in the search for the Re-Gou Ruby, but was used in the Dino Island fiasco in 1923, when it was piloted by journalist & accomplished pilot Pippin Reed, who latter went to work with Harry Cane and the Adventurers. The plane has a interior that seats eight people: 1 pilot and seven passengers, and the roof / wings can come off to seat mini-figures inside, as seen here. The rear of the plane makes use of a Toy Story 3 printed 2 x 4 tile for a registration number. Miss Pippin Reed (pilot) This former lead reporter for Adventurer Times was reporting on a Dr. Kilroy's 1920 discovery of a copy of the Book of the Dead when she met Johnny Thunder at a dig site near Cairo, Egypt. They have been good friends ever since, even though Ms. Reed happens to be an better aviator than Johnny. She currently is employed by Harry Cane as one of his best pilots. She usually files the Island Hopper on cargo runs in the Europe and Africa, but has known to take the plane as far away as the Pacific Ocean / Dino Island. Builders Notes: The 2008 Indiana Jones set features a DC-3 airplane and was set in 1957 (The year of Crystal Skull's plot). The colors were wrong for the Island Hopper, not to mention the design was wrong for a seaplane and the date was 30+ years after Johnny Thunder was around. (Here is the Brick-Link link for this set: http://www.bricklink...em.asp?S=7628-1 ) This is the original Island Hopper from 2000. (Brick-Link: http://www.bricklink...em.asp?S=5935-1 ) It was sorely out of date, and used "illegal" techniques for it's engine design. Seeing as both planes were out of date and had their fair share of bad points, I combined the two bad planes into one good one. I added a new tail to the DC-3, and redid the roof / windows. I then added a higher wing mount to it and put floats on the wings. The cockpit had to go, and seeing a better option in using new parts to achieve the same effect as the 5935 set's nose. This part solves the nose problem while keeping a nice vintage profile when combined with this part. EDIT 10/30/16: Added real life pictures of the completed model. I hope you all like them! EDIT 3/1/18: added newer real life pictures with the slimmed-down and more colorful version ,as seen in the newest pictures. Comments, Questions, and Complaints welcome!
  4. Hi everyone! Hopefully, this is ok to post here as I'm not really sure where else I'd post it. So recently, I had some time to build and I decided I'd build something ridiculous and absolutely absurd. So here it is: My basic idea was that it is a mobile base made for a few people after an apocalypse or something. Made from nearly 1250 pieces, it features a full interior living space for 2, crow's nest with a machine gun turret, 2 giant propeller engines, and the theoretical ability to float (Since this model is only in LDD, I have no idea if the boat hulls making up the pontoons would be able to hold the weight of the plane or not). Another view of the plane. Another goal of this build was to try and use specialized pieces in odd new ways. For example, using a helicopter blade and fence parts as wing detail. A closer look at the crow's nest. The door and ladder to get in and out, which is mirrored on either side. The small kitchen and dining area. There is also small storage areas with boxes and a chest. There is also a small bedroom in the back with bunk beds. I think my favorite part to build was the cockpit. It just has so many buttons and things to do in, plus it gives the plane it's unique dual windscreen look. I know it isn't perfect or stable, but it was really fun to build. I think it will go down as one of the most bizarre builds I've ever done. If you would like the LDD file, let me know. Thanks for looking!
  5. This model was originally set 31064, (Seaplane Adventures), a 2017 official Lego set from the CREATOR line, with some of the ideas from set 5935 (Island Hopper) from the 2000 ADVENTURERS line thrown in for good measure. I also added an updated figure of the pilot (Ms. Pippin Reed) plus a printed map tile. This twin-engine model is a seaplane, which means it can only land on water. No wheels would make for a very rough landing on dry ground! The model has two opening hatches (one for the pilot and one for loading cargo) and removable roof section for access to the cargo compartment. I got the printed 2 x 4 tiles on the rear of the plane from the 2010 Toy Story 3 line set "Western Train Chase". As the former lead reporter for Adventurer Times, Miss Pippin Reed was reporting on a Dr. Kilroy's 1920 discovery of a copy of the Book of the Dead when she met Johnny Thunder at a dig site near Cairo, Egypt. They have been good friends ever since, even though Ms. Reed happens to be an better aviator than Johnny. She currently is employed by Harry Cane as one of his best pilots. She usually files the Island Hopper on cargo runs into Europe and Africa, but has known to take the plane as far away as the Pacific Ocean / Dino Island and the Far East. In this picture we see the Adventurers' home base / resupply depot with the seaplane called the "Island Hopper", the large tramp steamer "Eastern", and the smaller tugboat "Gulf Stream". This photo is just for fun (read: not included in the LDD file), and features all the good-guy Adventurers vehicles and their home base, along with the seaplane called the "Island Hopper", the large tramp steamer "Eastern", the smaller tugboat "Gulf Stream" and Johnny Thunder's car "Treasure Raider". Any comments, Questions, Suggestions, and Complaints are always welcome. NOTE: The supply base and the other vehicles have thier own thread here or, if you are more into the bad guys, check out the Sinister battle-cruiser here and his secret submarine here.
  6. This model was originally set 31064, Seaplane Adventures, a 2017 official Lego set from the CREATOR line. I then extended the rear of the body about 8 studs, and lengthened the tail about 2 studs to be a little further away from the body of the aircraft. The MOD uses about 105 more parts to do this, but it gives in return an extended cargo area with removable roof section. This is in addition to the two hatches already on the stock model. Here is the main pic of the plane. The only LDD error I got from building this model was this part that keeps the dark blue engine part from rotating. It works in real life, but in LDD it doesn't go all the way on... go figure! The rear of the original set has a opening rear hatch for cargo loading, which is a feature I kept in my MOD of the set. The other hatch on the set is for accessing the cockpit, while a removable roof panel allows for the cargo area to more open for play-ability. The MOD uses about 105 more parts than are in set 31064 to complete the upgrade. The parts needed are above, and are grouped separately from the actual parts included in set 30164 in the file. This is so you can but the stock set from LEGO and then buy rest of the parts from Brick-Link, Brick-Owl or whatever site you use to buy parts from. Here is the ldd file for the modified plane. Remember: if you feel so inclined, any comments, questions, and / or complaints are always welcome!

    5935 Island Hopper Redux

    Hello everyone! I'm here on the Action and Adventure forum today to share with you my latest creation: 5935 Island Hopper Redux! 5935 Island Hopper redux by Joshua, on Flickr 5935 Island Hopper redux flying by Joshua, on Flickr 5935 Island Hopper redux wheels down by Joshua, on Flickr 5935 Island Hopper redux interior by Joshua, on Flickr ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5935 Island Hopper was one of my favorite sets TLG ever put out. I have many happy memories from my youth of long hours spent lost in the world of Johnny Thunder, and this set was always my favorite to play with, and somehow always made it into every adventure, no matter what environment it was taking place in. Sadly I no longer have the original set still complete, but recently I came across the instructions, and decided it was time for this to be reborn with new parts and techniques. All the play features from the original set are there, such as folding wings, and removable roof, but I also added a few of my own, namely retractable landing gear, opening rear hatch,full interior, and working vertical and horizontal stabilizers. Worth noting is that many of the pieces from the original set were used in the new model. Hope you all like it! Long Live Johnny Thunder! Cheers, Joshua
  8. (This may apply to the Action & Adventure theme forum, but since it's just a bunch of vehicles I put it here. Sorry if this topic needs to be moved!) Tramp Steamer I built this ship from two Adventurers sets: I used the boat from set 5975 (T-Rex Transport) and modified slightly to resemble set 5976 (River Expedition). The ship features a boiler, steering wheel and a bigger smoke-stack. I have also added a complete bridge with removable roof instead of the open topped one on my previous version of the ship. The top floor of the ship is the bridge - this area contains a nautical telegraph (to control speed) and the wheel (to control direction)... and yes, there is a piece out of place. I fixed it after taking this photo. The lower floor features the boiler room. It is empty right now, but could be re-purposed into a captain's cabin. Island Hopper seaplane This is a seaplane based off 2008 Indiana Jones set 7628 (Peril In Peru), along with inspiration from 2000 Adventurers set 5935 (Island Hopper) thrown in for good measure. This part goes on both sides of the tail: http://alpha.brickli...=87079pb006#T=C The plane now has a interior that seats five people: 1 pilot and four passengers. Treasure Chaser - Johnny Thunder's ride This model was inspired by sets 7622, Race for the Stolen Treasure, and 5918, Scorpion Tracker. Ford Model AA truck This one was heavily inspired by set 10222, Winter Village Post Office. I originally built it from the pictures before instructions came out. 1922 MOON Automobile This car was originally a Rolls Royce Phantom MKII first designed by Carl Greatrix that got transformed into a MOON Touring car. (no, the the jalopy from the Apollo Moon missions, but the car company from St. Louis MO!) once I realized how close they were to each other in style cues. I guess I did the usual car building process backwards: build the car, then find a real life counterpart, instead of building the car off a specific type. Roaring 20's Gangster Sedan This model was modified from set 7682, Shanghai Chase. Perfect for smuggling illegal alcohol or setting up a drive by for friendly meeting with the rival gangs. Gasoline tanker truck Built from set 7683, Fight on the Flying Wing and modified to have a radiator grille and a better fuel tank. Island Racer mark II I modified my copy of set 5920 to have a longer wheelbase and a spare wheel. I also modernized the engine area with special attention paid to the grille. Lord Sam Sinister's personal vehicle This model was inspired by the recent announcement of the Super Man "Action Comics Number 1" exclusive San Diego Comic Con 2015 LEGO set, which I then extended and improved into the model seen here. This part goes on the rear license plate spot: http://www.bricklink....asp?P=3069bpa1 and as a bonus here is my favorite picture: A Sinister Encounter In case you wonder what is so sinister about the picture, the name of the person who owns the house is Lord Sam Sinister, an evil man who hates the owner of the plane: Johnny Thunder and his friend and aviatrix of the seaplane, Pippin Reed.
  9. Hi, here's my LDD model of Captain Baloo's famous plane. I hope you like it :) Best Vaionaut Edit: @Mod: Please correct the typo in the Title (Disney's). Thx!
  10. Hi everybody, Here is my contribution at JFAIR theme : a seaplane built few weeks ago for a contest at techlug. The whole Moc is manual, it features: -Propeller pitch control, -full pitch, yaw and roll control, -Flaps -flat twin engine, -steerable, retractable and suspended front wheels, -working rudders, -opening doors -Folding wings Hope you'll enjoy it :)
  11. The future. The world is overrun by zombies. (We're talking 28 Days later/World War Z zombies, not slow stumbling ones.) How can I keep my gf and two dogs safe??? My first thought is either by air, or by sea... A flying boat it is! I made this over the past month or so, I hope you like it! C&C welcome and appreciated (Sorry for the picture quality!) The Pelican On either side of the fuselage is an escape hatch, and a canopy Powered by two massive custom engines, with wide props designed for maximum pull In between the engines on the top of the plane is a custom quad-tank Nitrous injector which feeds directly into each engine. Quick getaways are a must when there are zombies in pursuit... Also helps in situations where there isn't much water to take off from. Behind the Nitrous injector is a small communications array In the rear is a ramp which descends to unload the Rhino (we'll get to the Rhino in a bit) In between the engines is the observation deck/quarters On the right is a computer, in the middle is the bed, and on the left is a telescope for making sure there is none of the undead lurking on the shore... The Interior In the front of course, is the flight deck On the left of the interior is the armoury On the right is the medical station, with a stretcher and the critical syringes of anti-bite for when a zombie gets a little too close... In the rear is the Rhino bay What could that small opening above the floor be??? That's right! You guessed it! The doghouse! Let's open the hatch and have a look inside... Half of the inside is the doghouse, with an A/C/Heater unit. There is also a food dish, and a water bowl which feeds from a tank in the cabin The other half is shared by the Nitrous tank recharge station, and the safe. (I know, who needs treasure in the apocalypse, but whatever!) The rear section is reserved for my all terrain vehicle, the Rhino. The Rhino The engine, as you could have guessed has a Nitrous tank for quick boosts of speed when needed And away we go! Thanks for looking! To end things off, I made a small diorama so we could slaughter some zombies... I prefer the shotgun approach... While my beb prefers the flamethrower Thanks for checking it out!!!!!
  12. Hello everyone! I don't have many Fabuland parts, and the ones I do have are all from other themes. When I was looking through them, I saw that I do have two Fabuland airplane engines, so I thought about I could build with those, and this is the result: a seaplane! With this vehicle, all the Fabulanders can transport larger amounts of persons or cargo, by water and by air! I like to think that the pilot is named Steven Seagull. Fabuland Seaplane by Oky - Space Ranger, on Flickr Fabuland Seaplane back by Oky - Space Ranger, on Flickr Fabuland Seaplane top by Oky - Space Ranger, on Flickr Fabuland Seaplane front by Oky - Space Ranger, on Flickr Fabuland Seaplane side by Oky - Space Ranger, on Flickr I hope you like it. C&C welcome. Have a fabulous month!
