  1. Fill 'Er Up! A while back I presented the Bugatti Type 35 Grand Prix pictured being unearthed in an elderly farmer’s barn. This time the little Bugatti is ready to be "fueled up" in a period gas station. Back in the twenties gasoline was sold in quite simple shacks, at times they were drugstores, at times they were pharmacies. What it's sure the early gas stations were very different from modernist or art déco ones. Recently Blocks magazine featured my Bugatti in haystack with step by step building instructions (below) and few days ago I uploaded the pics on my flickr photostream. So if you can't buy a classic racecar you can build it from LEGO! Thanks for stopping by!
  2. Hi everyone You may have seen my MOC modular buildings on here recently, The Queen Bricktoria and Brick Square Post Office. For my new project I've decided to build something completely different. This is also my first ever entry as a Lego Ideas project. "A roaring fire and a full head of steam, the old traction engine is ready for work!" I have created a scene set some time during the early 20th century. Farmers are working in the fields with their steam traction engine, affectionately known as "The Old Workhorse". The model includes a detailed mini fig scale traction engine, a wagon and various other accessories and mini builds. THE TRACTION ENGINE The main feature of the model is the traction engine itself. I've used a classic green and red livery with polished brass lining and details. There are several interesting parts used to create this engine including paint roller handles and mini fig syringes used to create the piping around the boiler and inside the cab. A system of cogs ensures that the flywheel spins around as the traction engine is pushed forward. A detailed cab interior includes steering wheel, controls and a firebox door that can be opened and closed to reveal the burning fire inside. The front wheel axle can be pivoted left and right. THE WAGON I've also included a wagon/trailer that can be coupled to the back of the traction engine and used to carry the various accessories included with the model. The sides of the wagon can be dropped down to provide loading access for the mini figs. There is space at the front of the wagon to hold tools and mini fig accessories. MINIFIGURES & OTHER ACCESSORIES Included with the model are 2 mini figs, a dog, a rat and several mini builds including tree stumps, logs and rocks. These are all designed to be carried and towed in the wagon. THE FINISHED MODEL The overall model contains 480 pieces. Here is a shot of The Old Workhorse, steaming past the buildings in my MOC modular street. LEGO IDEAS As mentioned earlier this is my first entry as a Lego Ideas project. If you like what you see then I really would be so grateful if you could please support my project on Lego Ideas, and help The Old Workhorse to gather steam. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/2a2ec583-9836-4868-8dc7-6b3bb0a2fe80 Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and I hope you like the model. Feel free to let me know what you think. If you'd like to see more pictures, there are many more on my Flickr page. Edit: I've added a new brick built version of the model on page 2 of this topic.

    Fiat 500 L

    (this is my first post, so if there's something wrong, please help me) Hi, I'm relatively new with this MOC thing, but I decided to try something about a car I know very well and love: the Fiat 500L. Let's start with some little tips and and story: "born" in 1968 this model of 500 is called "L", where the L stands for lusso (luxury), because this version has some beter refinitions, like chromed bumper reinforcement, moquette, an heater and some other tecnic improvements. The MOC has very similar dimensions to the green Mini Coper Creator kit, and comes with openable doors and hoods, front seats are reclinable and djustable,and the roof is not openable but it can be sustituted with an open version I'm posting here this MOC because I'd like to collect some fedbacks and advices about the building, and if you find this MOC good enough, or if you love it like I do, you can also vote it on Lego IDEAS here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/13656e47-8f4b-4813-a138-f240f0909681 I'll appreciate every tip you can give to better this model. I'm also working on a 500R version and a 500 Jolly version, and I will post them sooner. in the meantime,thank you for watching!
  4. When I was cleaning up my working place today I rediscovered one of my very early mocs, a Ferrari F2002. The scale is about 1/12 and by today's standards you have to describe its look as very vintage: looks of studs exposed, countless illegal building techniques and some parts in wrong colours because I could not just order them on bricklink. But there is one part of the build I am still proud of today: the (not working) rigid suspensions. It is very funny how things can change in about a decade. I hope you like it. http://Ferrari F2002-3 by klingen_guru, auf Flickr http://Ferrari F2002-2 by klingen_guru, auf Flickr http://Ferrari F2002-1 by klingen_guru, auf Flickr http://Ferrari F2002-5 by klingen_guru, auf Flickr

    [FIGS] Vintage Droid CMFs

    Hi all! Recently I cooked up something unusual. What happens when you put together the new and the old? Pieces and ideas, that is? I have never owned any of the droids or even been into Space sets and whatnot, so wasn't infatuated with these three classic buggers until I picked them up very recently. I also own UFO droids, but those aren't as charismatic or distinctive. By combining mostly vintage Lego pieces and sneaking in a few new ones, I made a custom "VHS" trio complete with printed stands to resemble the CMF series. One thing to note: times have changed, and so has the trio's purpose... First: the white Exploriens Droid. Enemies will not be walking - heavy hammer does the talking! Second: Insectoids Droid. The menacing cannon's electromagnetic, the enemies better be very athletic! Third: Spyrius Droid. Tracking foes with recon bot, slashing them with plasma sword! That's it, folks! Weaponizing the trio was not my aim, but it just so happened that everything fell into place this way. Cheers, and comments are welcome!
  6. When I saw the pictures of this train in @HoMa:s Lego Trains Book. I simply couldn't resist the temptation (particularly not after having seen TLGs miserable train news for 2018 ...) So I built it myself. A true pleasure with a very high degree of satisfaction. And another beautiful contribution to my train collection: A big praise to Holger for this very nice MOC which wakes many train memories back in the years when I grew up in Switzerland. This train is a 9V version with a total of four 9V motors mounted on the first two coaches. The interiors of the locomotive are therefore empty, i.e. no PF stuff. The Be 6/8 is built in Reddish Brown to match the colours of the Swedish iron ore train with the Dm3 and the Da locomotives. In addition, it is adapted to the challenges of the 9V Extreme layout, in particular the humps at the level transitions. And the rods by Trained Bricks really put the dot over the i ... PS: Imagine - a Swedish iron ore train together with a Swiss Crocodile in the midst of the Swiss Alps - goose bumps all over again ...

    Cool Oldtimers on Lego Ideas

    https://ideascdn.lego.com/community/projects/bf2/fd2/5379251-o_1cbfnmj3r1q3tfpo1ijnmj19cds-NHSISQ5XhODY0w-thumbnail-full.jpg So I started a Lego Ideas Project. I have no idea if this is gonna make it. I thought of all my Mocs the oldtimers would be the most suitable for Ideas. Special thanks to Mahjqa for helping with photographing and photo-shopping. - Link Removed - Please support, vote and share if you like. Thanks for looking!
  8. There has been some rumors that I am not capable to make new quizzes. This is NOT true! I come back with new quizzes. For warm-up, let's stick to 4.5v battery wagons again! After the successful quiz N1: which was followed with a new item on bricklink: https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=x488c03&idColor=5 now again: what do you find uncommon in this photo? I have told the answer to few friends. Please do not spoil. If you know the answer, you can pm me then I comment that you know the answer so that people can think about this photo for few days. There are gonna be harder quizzes, so prepare for them! ;-) :-) Have fun.
  9. My version of the famous bug, Wip, as never satisfied, so keep on updating This is based on my real build beetle moc, all comments welcome, old rear end. rally version (i believe this is Gulf oil racing colours) classic version
  10. Hello, I own a 070 universal building set from 1967 or so (photo1), but this one has cardboard inlays instead of the plastic ones you can commonly find (photo2). Does anyone has an idea whether it is an older type, or some transition box? I cannot find more info on this. Except: the set 050 from 1964 has similar inlays (photo3)... Thanks for helping me out!
  11. Hey guys new to the forum but not to lego. Just started a new Youtube channel where Im speed building all the old sets i got when i was a kid. They range from about 1990-2009. Im just getting going on the channel so the list of sets will build as I go. I have roughly 2-250 sets so if you're a fan of older sets check it out. Thanks Travis

    [MOC] Art Déco Gas Station

    Fill 'er up! My latest build is a jump into the glory days of gas stations, when full service and free oil changes were the rule and the local station was a gathering place for neighbors. My brick-built gas station is inspired to the Shell one located in Tucson (Arizona) and it’s packed with every details you’d expect to find. It showcases an elegant Art Déco architecture completed with curved corners, a tower in the middle, a red outline all around the station and the inevitable Shell writing on top. The build is three in one: the diner on the left, the garage/workshop on the right and the fully-equipped store located in the middle of the building. A look at the back of the station reveals the three locations with many details and the different characters. Outside there are two period gas pump with a beautiful Lego shell on top under a curved canopy. All around you can find tanks, signs, tyres and other stuff. To complete the work I've built a red stepside pick-up truck, a tan Hot Rod and a reddish-brown roadster with some troubles (it's housed in the garage indeed). It was on my wishlist long since and finally I've found the time to built it as I had in my mind. I'm sorry for posting my gas station here with a little delay Thanks for stopping by.

    [MOC] Vintage Endurance Racecar

    Hey LEGO people! May I present to you, my model of an open top vintage endurance race car from the mid to late 70's. This is a heavily modified and improved version of a model I posted many, many moons ago. Those cars participated in the 24 and 12 hour events and were famous for their low drag bodies, blistering top speeds of up to 380 km/h / 235 mp/h and extremely lightweight constructions. I hope you like it!

    [MOC] Vintage Flatbed

    My first mundane not-sci-fi-or-fantasy MOC, an old-fashioned flatbed truck of nonspecific make, year and model. Initial concept for it was somewhat more specific—something along the lines of a 50s Chevy—but the design quickly mutated wherever available parts (and building inexperience) necessitated, into the odd copyright-dodging Frankenstein's Monster you see before you. For instance, trucks of the era didn't typically have such prominent bambi-bashers. Okay, this bit wasn't really necessary, I just felt like it needed a bit of ruggedness. Still managed some decently evocative shaping, I thought. (also the mirrors can of course be adjusted, as per my moving joints rule) It's generally good practice to tie things down, though. Oh well, Garry is usually a careful driver. Now it's actually flat, sans railings and cargo. (but the most important railing remains: the guard that keeps Garry's perilously unsecured cargo from crashing through the rear window and into his head. If you've ever wondered what those were for on real trucks, now you know) Underside, not much to see here. Interior, with an old printed piece for dashboard/instruments. The most LEGO kind, really. Garry's buddies relax after a long day of... hauling crates full of random grey machine-looking parts to the mill, or whatever it is you use flatbed trucks for. I'm not much of a Town person. That's all for now! Full gallery can be found here.

    MOC: Vintage Town Vehicles

    Being off school for the summer leaves a lot of free time on one's hands, along with a load of Lego bricks at one's disposal. Coming straight from this load of bricks: Vintage Town Vehicles Each of these vehicles is made using old-school techniques with whatever parts I happened to have at the moment. Most are based off old-fashioned vehicles in order to fit in with my pre-1980s town aesthetic. 1900's Oldsmobile Runabout This little car is built on a basic 4x7 chassis with small wheels and an area in the back to store a briefcase. The driver is dressed in 1890's-1900's style clothing, complete with deerstalker cap. 1910's Rolls Royce 40/50 This smart-looking red car is for use of a select few nobility, with a folded-up hood made from 1x3 slope bricks in case of rain. 1920's Ford Delivery Truck This delivery truck uses some interesting building methods. For example, the headlights are made from grey socket wrenches, the back door is made with window shutters, and the mirrors are simply 1x1 clips attached to a 1x4 wheel axle. Inside, there is room for even a 3x4 crate. 1920's Ford "Tin Lizzie" This car uses some techniques from the old Adventurers sets, along with new parts from modern Lego sets. The convertible hood is made using old-fashioned hinges, with Ninjago nunchuck handles and Technic pins to hold up the roof. 1950's Motor Coach Based off the Bedford OB Coach used in the film The Titfield Thunderbolt, this model has a red-and-blue livery, with luggage rack on the roof and enough room for two minifigs plus a driver. 1980's Ford Transit Post Van This van is built on a 2x8 sloped wheel chassis, with window shutters again being used as back doors. The back has enough room for letters or packages, but still no room for Jess... 1970's Milk Float This milk float was a very difficult build, but got pulled off nonetheless. Inside is enough room for twelve bottles of milk, whether red-cap, yellow-cap, or cream. 1990's COE Repair Pickup Truck Based off the truck from set 4561 Railway Express, this truck has a pickup bed in the back, with clips for attaching a wrench and hammer (the latter for when a job doesn't go according to plan). They're charming vehicles, to say the least, paying a large homage to the vehicles of yesteryear. Feel free to comment below or ask questions about the builds. Always entertaining, always inspiring, always:
  22. Hey everyone! I am glad to introduce my all-new entry: Another nice example to my existing vintage vehicle fleet! This time I have designed and built a pre-War lorry, in a vintage blue color, with some cool details. This car is built to fit to the modular Lego town as well as the Winter Village. Check out the happy driver:) There is a huge space inside to fill with loads of goods! See how it looks next to the other member of my vintage garage: After finishing with the build, I started to think about a custom decal to the blue sides of the truck. Please reply with your ideas which I would really appreciate!:) Check out my Flickr gallery for more high-res images: And here is my previous topic with all the vintage cars from my garage: http://www.eurobrick...topic=91343&hl= Enjoy and have fun!:) UPDATE: check out my latest creation, the Milk Van! Built to fit my oldtimer vehicle collection, this is a car we could see quite often on the strets of Lego Town. Enjoy!:) Check out my Flickr gallery for more high-res images:

    Alfa Romeo Tipo 33/3

    Hi guys! Another digital scale model! Alfa Romeo 33/3 from the early '70. This model is totally RC, with an XL motor for the traction, a servo for the steer, battery pack and IR receiver; fake V8 engine, indipendent suspension. The scale is +/- 1:8. If some of you want to build it, here it is the link with the LDD file: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-6980/zazavolley/alfa-romeo-33-3/ "The Alfa Romeo 33/3 made its debut in 1969 at the 12 Hours of Sebring. The engine was enlarged to 2998 cc (183ci) with 400 hp (298 kW), which put the 33/3 in the same class as the Porsche 908 and the Ferrari 312P. The chassis was now a monocoque. The new car did poorly at Sebring and Alfa did not take part in Le Mans after Lucien Bianchi's death in a practice session. The car took a couple of wins in smaller competitions but overall the 1969 season was not a successful one, and Alfa Romeo was placed seventh in the 1969 International Championship for Makes. In 1971 the Alfa Romeo racing effort was finally successful. Rolf Stommelen and Nanni Galli won their class at the 1000km Buenos Aires (followed by De Adamich and Pescarolo), before taking another class win (and second overall) at Sebring. De Adamich and Pescarolo later won outright at the 1000km Brands Hatch, a significant result against the "invincible" 917s. They then took a class win at Monza (where Alfa Romeo took the three podium slots in the prototype class) and another one at Spa. At the Targa Florio, Vaccarella and Hezemans won outright, followed by teammates De Adamich and Gijs Van Lennep. Hezemans and Vaccarella won their class at Zeltweg, and De Adamich and Ronnie Peterson won overall at Watkins Glen. Alfa Romeo finished the season second place in the championship. In 1972 the 5 litre Group 5 Sports Cars were banned and the 3 litre cars of Alfa Romeo, Ferrari and Matra, redesignated as Group 5 Sports Cars, competed together for outright victories." Wikipedia
  24. This bank was originally designed for the Western theme as a two story open-backed model. I then decided it would look better as a regular town model and thus I added a rear half and third floor. The model opens like a dollhouse on a hinge, and locks shut on a Technic pin, just like most of my buildings. The more modern-looking truck model is a modified version of the 2014 set 76015, Doc Ock Truck Heist, with the bulk of the changes inspired by Flickr user eurotrash48903, or Eurotrash as he is known he on EurobBricks. The truck is already built in real life, but it is included in the LDD file as well. When the building is built in real life as well, I will update this thread with pictures of it in real bricks instead of in digital screenshots. The bank should feature printed 1 x 1 letter tiles in various spots: the top of the building below the clock should say "1892" while just above the front door should be the word "BANK". Inside the building on the lower floor is the three teller windows and loan officers desk. The middle floor features three counting tables and tow vaults. (those vaults are the same as the one in set 10217, Diagon Alley) The upper floor features the bank manager's office with filing cabinets and three chairs. The rear of the building. This truck was inspired by Eurotrash and his own MOD of the set to be 7 wide. I didn't change it quite as much as him, but I did follow his lead in several spot, such as shortening the frame by 2 studs and getting rid of the ridiculously over-sized original wheels. The roof and front have been strengthened and a door added to the rear, as their was none before. One mini-figure can sit in the drivers seat. The LDD file for the both bank and truck is included in this link here. As usual, comments, questions and complaints are welcome.
