  1. Dear fellow LEGO enthusiasts, I am in dire need of some help from you folks who are definitely more knowledgeable than I. In this case, I am needing help with the replication of the RMS Titanic's Reciprocating Engines and Turbine. I am in the midst at the moment of working on the project below, though I have not updated it in a great while due to university work. See this link here for the project thread. But this is a minifig scale project, with every door, every window accounted for. This means that in regards to the engines, I am also seeking to make them at least somewhat true to scale and able to work as intended. Obviously this is a big job of some top notch Edwardian-era engineering, but I am hoping that there might be some out there not as technically-challenged (pun totally intended) as I am, willing to help me get this part of the project off the ground. Some of the features I I am looking for include a fully air-powered system, where the air supply would come from tanks hidden in the mock-boilers, that are then funneled at somewhat high pressure to the Triple Recip. Engines, which means that the pressure would go down as it goes through each cylinder (HP, IP, then two LPs). The leftover air at a much lower pressure then goes to a junction that can either go to the Parson's Turbine at what was historically 4 psi, or can go directly to the condensers. With the latter I intend just to make the outside of it and hide inside some custom compressors like this. That would then return to the original air supply. With this I am hoping that I will have a self-supplying system with ideally no more than 5% leakage, or enough compressors that leaks are compensated for. WIth the Parson's Turbine, that can be an accurate shell with whatever is needed inside to include a working turbine, and probably with an gearbox and ascending set of gear ratios to give it the necessary torque. These engines and turbine are meant to actually turn the propellers, perhaps even in water! Some other features would include a replica of the Brown-type reversing engine on the side of each of the Recip engines, making it so that the Stevenson-type eccentrics can change the direction of rotation. Considering the scale, the reversing engine doesn't technically have to be much more than a slightly-hidden piston that does the required job, but any more realism doesn't hurt. If something like this is possible, please let me know. I am really wanting to continue with this project, and this is a central part of it. But without the pieces in front of me instead of on a computer screen, what little I know of engineering definitely doesn't help without that tactile interaction. Thanks for your time, and I look forward to your replies! If it is possible, then I can follow up with the intended dimensions. Here are some references for any that wants some: View of turbine and condensers through wall from main engines rotor shaft model of port-side recip. engine overall basic view path of the steam of original, pressurized air for mine
  2. Hello everyone, while I was reading in this forum for a pretty long while now, I now signed in to ask for your help. I recently designed a Lego Titanic in a pretty large scale (it is about 2.50 metres long), so loading and everything else in LDD takes a long while of course. But no matter how long i wait, I can't seem to make my computer spit out the instructions, although I think it's not that bad of a machine (i5 4690k @ 4Ghz, 8 Gigs of RAM). Could anyone give me tips what the reason could be? I also thought about splitting it in parts, but as it is that large that you can barely move big areas of it without the software freezing, I disapproved of that idea. Sadly I don't know how to upload the .lxf here because it is too big (230KB). Thanks in advance, Mirco

    Titanic’s Maiden Voyage

    A project by Courleciel, Papacharly and Ssorg We’d like to present you our new project based on the huge RMS Titanic built by Ssorg in 2012 (project has just reached the 10k supporters on Lego Ideas!). Dock, tugs and iceberg have been built by me in LDD, then transfered in LDraw. We optimized the model by adding all the portholes on the hull (not really an easy deal, but it was worthwhile!), the lights on the masts, the flag and the letterings (bow and stern). All renders have been made by Papacharly. Click here for high resolution images. First post will be edited with a new render each day up to April 15th. So don’t forget to come back there to take a look on other amazing renders ! We hope you will enjoy our work. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Wednesday 10th April 1912 : Early morning, Titanic was docked. Passengers had not embark yet. Titanic_Southampton by papacharly24, on Flickr Inspired by this painting Titanic_Southampton_BW by papacharly24, on Flickr Four hours after leaving Southampton the ship arrived at Cherbourg (France) to pick up new passengers. Titanic_Bow by papacharly24, on Flickr Thursday 11th April 1912 : Titanic was going to reach Queenstown (now Cobh, South Ireland) and tenders brang some passengers aboard. At early afternoon, Titanic departed on her westward journey across the Atlantic. Titanic_Stern by papacharly24, on Flickr Friday 12th April 1912 : The ship steamed at full speed in the direction of New-York. Titanic_Bow_Side by papacharly24, on Flickr Saturday 13th April 1912 : Titanic sailed through calm waters. The temperature was getting colder as the ship came more and more closer to the Grand Banks of Newfoundland. Titanic_Sunset by papacharly24, on Flickr Sunday 14th April 1912 : Weather is clear, calm and very cold by this evening. Despite a serie of messages from other ships (such as SS Californian) warning of drifting ice, the ship struck an iceberg on starboard and the impact produced a huge opening in the hull. Titanic_Iceberg by papacharly24, on Flickr Monday 15th April 1912 : Water was pouring into the lowest levels of the ship. The first lifeboats were lowered into the freezing water. At 02 :20, Titanic disappeared from view. Titanic_Sinking by papacharly24, on Flickr

    LDD MOC Lego RMS Titanic

    four years ago I started on a new LDD Lego design of the RMS Titanic, over the last four years, the design was redone and improved to the point I was happy with the model. The LDD Lego RMS Titanic has 8520 pieces in the model and can be brought on Bricklink apart from two of the colors I have used in the LDD Lego RMS Titanic, the first color is the buff color of the lower parts of the funnels and the bronze / copper color for the propeller parts. (12/10/2014) Update. I am getting nearer to the point of actually building the model, as of today I have 4271 pieces of Lego in stock now ready to use A view of the ship from the right side view of the bow showing some of the detail close up view of the bridge and the front section of the titanic View of the stern showing some of the details a view of the boat deck on the titanic showing the life boats a closer view of the Titanic's boat deck showing some of the life boats Closer view of the bridge of the Titanic closer view of the bow of the Titanic, showing some of the details view of the three propellers on the Lego LDD Titanic (need to be customed alter to a three bladed propellers) close up view of the Lego LDD Titanic another close up view of the boat deck including the area between funnels 2 and 3 close up view of the front end of the boat deck including the area around funnels 1 & 2 view of the left side of the Lego LDD Titanic another view of the Lego LDD Titanic The Lego LDD Titanic is almost 10 inches wide, 6.6 inches long and almost 2 foot high.
