  1. Stage One: Fermentation - Ayrlego Stage Two: Drying - Puvel Stage Three: Roasting - SilentWolf Stage Four: Grinding and Pressing - Bregir There is much going on in King's Harbour these days. First it opens its majestic new garden, then the department of time began ringing its perfect bells. Now a cocoa factory is starting up. Today, the Colonial Governor Jonathan Cooke is receiving a tour of the third phase of the factory where all the roasting of the cocoa beans takes place. He is just now meeting the foreman, a Mr. Edward Roberts. "Glad to meet you Captain Cooke! I was looking forward to your visit. This building's sole purpose is to roast the cocoa beans that have already been fermented and dried. I dare say this factory will propel our export of cocoa to great heights and make Cocovia the envy of all the brickworld." "Here you see a wagon that is just recently loaded with roasted beans. It is on its way over to the grinding and pressing plant that I heard you have already toured. This driver is one of the spryest old men you have ever seen. He gets his wagon loaded and unloaded faster than any of our other drivers." "When you came over the bridge, you may have noticed the barge that is delivering a supply of wood for the furnaces. We receive deliveries several times a week just so we can keep our ovens running. A family business is what I hear and they deliver anywhere there barge can reach. I believe in the future we will even ship our beans between factories using the canal." Cooke replied, "I did indeed see the barge. That is a large quantity of wood that is being delivered. Is it all for the factory?" Roberts answered, "Yes, that is indeed all for our operations. This week we should need only one more delivery toward the end of the week, but we are having a slower week with a couple of the ovens . Would you care to come inside and see the process? Our first batch of the day should be coming out of the oven soon." "The stone ovens have the fire in a separate compartment beneath the roasting area. The two compartments are accessed via different doors which allows us to add wood or remove the beans without affecting the heating process. We can thus maintain the proper temperatures between batches of roasted beans lowering the downtime. Cocoa roasting unlike coffee roasting is at a low temperature and maintaining the temperature is key." "The beans are taken out of the barrels that they arrived in from the drying division, and placed on trays preferably in a single layer. They are then placed in a properly heated oven until they are almost done." "They are then removed from the oven and set out to cool during which time they finish roasting as the trays cool. At this time, they have acquired there unique cocoa flavor and aroma that we have come to love. They are then placed in barrels and loaded on wagons like the one you saw to send to the grinding and pressing division" "You may notice that it is warm in here. In order to keep it tolerable for the employees, we built in special vents above the ovens that we can raise and lower with a bar. This enables some of the heat to escape without allowing a strong draft which would cool the ovens and ruin the roast." "You can see the barrels of dried beans waiting to be roasted. We shall complete all of those today which in reality is a slow day. We like to roast all the beans delivered yesterday which enables us to know exactly how much work is going to be needed tomorrow. We also have to keep a supply of empty crates and barrels so that we do not run out. Efficiency is key to a successful business such as this." "My office is up above the door which enables me to oversee the whole process even when I have paperwork to do. It also enables me to get a quick overview of our inventory at any time that I need it. The only downside is it can get hot up there, but that doesn't matter excessively as my work also involves being on the floor checking temperatures and end products." "We take pride in taking care of our employees. We have a nice area set aside for them to enjoy a cooler break or mealtime. Though they have to rotate when the breaks occur as the process must be kept moving. It is the most efficient way. I hope you enjoyed your tour, Captain Cooke, and I am sure you will find the other divisions equally as satisfying and efficient. Feel free to walk around the place before you leave." Edit: The footprint of this build is 58x58 with a little overhang from the shutters. Credit goes to Bregir for the idea of the brick pillars on the façade of the building.
  2. (I thought I had made a topic for this model by itself, but i can't find it. All I could find was it in a compilation thread from 2014.) I have recreated this grain elevator designed by my father way back in the late 90's. The building was built for the loading of hoppers like set 4536 (1991's Blue Hopper Car) or 10017 (2001's Hopper Wagon). This building has never been really well done officially, but it was touched upon in 3677 (2011's Red Cargo Train). However, grain hopper cars have been made at least four times in official sets, with the fourth model being in set 60098. (Heavy-Haul cargo train) I added some parts that did not exist when originally built, such as the red windscreens used as a funnel, and a conveyor belt with handle. I even included an updated and enlarged version of set 10017 (Hopper Wagon) from the 9v-era's "My Own Train" theme in 2001. I enlarged the opening for the filling of the grain cars by two studs width-wise so that larger engines and cars can fit through, such a steam engines with working side-rods. The building features a handle on the other side or operating the conveyor belt. The handle turns the conveyor belt to drop 1 x 1 round bricks into the funnel and the hopper car below. A four-stud-longer version of set 10017 (as seen above) is included in the LDD file. As om the original model, the doors stay closed for transporting the 1 x 1 round bricks (the "grain") and open up when it needs to be dumped out for processing. Their are two doors on either side of the car, so you can unload it where needed. The model includes a larger dual-bay area for carrying more grain. Here is the original grain elevator that inspired my model. It was built around 1999-ish by my father. The LDD file for my version is available for download at this link here. Comments, Questions, & complaints are always welcome, and the this model (plus a few hopper cars) should be built by Christmas / beginning of 2018. Any thoughts?
  3. A quick unboxing and review of a sealed 1996 LEGO Western set 6716 "Covered Wagon". This set comes with one minifigure, a horse, a canon, and of course, the covered wagon. I make LEGO reviews in 3 minutes or less. Want to see more quick reviews like this? Please SUBSCRIBE!
  4. Goal was to make as similar wagon as this one from Roco company, which make locomotives, wagons etc for model railway. This wagon was made in Epoche III and for "Deutsche Reichsbahn (DDR)". Of course, some modifications and compensation was made, because of lack of some LEGO pieces in right color or they are too expensive, like curved slopes for the roof in metallic color. Emmm, I'm sorry for the unclear pictures. Wagon is without interior, because there is no room for anything detailed, except LEGO seats. I try to make chassis frame as on the picture, but use the original LEGO wheels. The wheels are a little bit too far from each other what causes some friction on LEGO curved rails, but on bigger radius like ME Model tracks has, there is no problem at all.
  5. [ MOC ] The Winter Express

    Hi everyone! A little while since I completed and posted my creations. Winter is here, and Christmas is coming, and I think it is time to do something for my winter village. Here is my first try on making a train MOC, and it is an interesting building journey. I have looked at different beautiful locomotive engines online and created my version with a little seasonal deco. I don't want this to be a funny, cartoon Christmas tree, but a formal and decent express train going between the city and the winter village. The engine is the part that took me most time to create. I had the basic form in my head, but the mechanism and details actually required quite some understanding of the actual old locomotives. Luckily, the green Emerald Train gave me much hint and so I ended up with this: I added some interesting details to the front bumper part, using the claw pieces. I also tried a "tilted bottle" arrangement for the chimney part. The engine probably runs on diesel as there is no coal section. The wagon car follows the engine, and that is how you get your presents at the winter village! Freshly delivered from the city center! The passenger car is a simple one with all you need: doors and windows, and a streamlined profile. It looks like it has warm air supply already for your long journey through the winter: The last car is a mail car. Of course, you need to deliver a lot of parcels and Christmas cards to the villagers from the city. So, have we arrived yet? Yes, this is it! Hope you guys like it! :D Have a merry Christmas! ;)
  6. It should be recalled that Alex, Henry, and Jimmy were "prospecting" and found what they believed to be gold. Despite their beliefs, it was determined that actually they had found quicksilver. Once they were told, they went around and informed everyone that they had discovered the largest mine of silver in the history of forever. Their fathers on the other hand, contacted the WETEC in regard to the discovery, and soon a mine was opened. The red cinnabar ore that contained the quicksilver was removed from an underground shaft, and carted to the surface. Here we see a wagon load being pulled by draft horses to the new factory on the outskirts of town. Inside the mine, they are about ready to push a new cartload out to the next wagon waiting to be loaded. Lanterns provide light for the workers. Here is an overview of the build.
  7. hi everyone in this topic I'll show my collection of trains to start, a moc I made using pieces I had laying around

  9. Nordheim Paddock

    This is the second module for the collab that John and I are building. You can see the first, here. The hay cart has steerable front wheels, and the shelter’s gate can open and close. There are many small farms outside Nordheim’s walls, and cattle paddocks with lean-to shelters are a common sight. There are more pictures on brickbuilt. Thanks for looking, all your feedback is appreciated
  10. Billy's Tree House

    Built for the “Ultimate Tree House” category of the MOCathalon. I’ve always wanted to build a tree house, so this was a very fun category for me, though still a bit tricky at times. The tree house features a working crane, tire swing, rope bridge, and a full interior. Fun fact: This build used all of the green, bright green, and dark green leaves in our collection. Billy’s magnificent tree house is the most popular hangout area for all the kids in his neighborhood. More pictures here: Link Thanks for looking, C&C appreciated
  11. Hi folks, some days ago I finished a new MOC. It's a forestry wagon, those are/were often used by lumbermen here in southern Germany. The lumbermen took their breaks in... The wagon itself is mostly classic build but fits the Unimog quite well - I think ;) Some pictures: And a small video.... Hope you like it, have fun...
  12. Okay this is another free build, I've made, my second actually, so I hope you all like it! Here it is: Deep in the swamplands of Nocturnus, was a treehouse built from two trees. The treehouse over looked small road used only by a few merchants who wished to shave time off their trade route. Inside were two croc warriors. Suddenly running up the road was a third croc warrior. He ran over to the tree house and scrambled up the ladder. “What is it?” Demanded the leader of the croc warriors. “A merchant wagon is coming! Two guards! They’ll be here ANY minute!” “Finally! Get to your posts!” barked the leader. The other two warriors scrambled down the ladder and concealed themselves in the swamp. The crocs watched silently as the wagon came nearer. Just as it passed the tree house the leader croc dropped a log held by who chains, it swung through the hole in the tree house floor and slammed into the wagon knocking it and the guard walking next to it into the swamp. The crocs in the swamp leapt out and attacked! The leader scrambled down the ladder and attacked the last guard, quickly killing him. Soon all the merchants were dead, and the crocs set about looting the half submerged wagon. Okay that's it hope you all liked it! Please feel free to leave any compliments and/or criticism.
  13. Hey everyone, I just wanted to share an awesome MOC from my friend on Lego Ideas, nunki-psi. Nunki-psi was recently staff picked for another project, Medieval Pharmacy. Nunki-psi's newest project is a peddler's wagon with opening doors, a removable roof, many accessories, and amazing details and aesthetics. The link to it is here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/116646. Here also is a picture of it:
  14. This MOC features a peddler's wagon with several different features, including compartments for swords, bows and quivers, and Merry Men. Robin Hood and Little John are riding the wagon, and the Sheriff of Nottingham is off to the side ready to check the wagon's contents. There is an additional member of the Merry Men in the tree to the side of the wagon, which includes a catapult and hand and footholds to climb it in the back. Let me know what you think, and if you have any suggestions! This MOC is also a project on Lego Ideas. Please support/share it if you like it: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/115547 I have a lot more pictures of the MOC on Flickr, with better resolution: https://www.flickr.c...157657993256465 [
  15. While we wait to see what Nexo Knights has in store for us, I thought I would share another MOC I just made. One of Robin Hood's Merry Men enters the village ready to give out stolen treasure . . . since his cart looks to be carrying refreshment, he is able to smuggle the treasure in without being stopped by the Sheriff of Nottingham's men! This MOC includes a horse-drawn cart featuring a barrel full of treasure, and two minifigures: One of Robin Hood's Merry Men to steer the cart, and a village blacksmith ready to gather up the treasure (as shown in the last image). This is also a project on Lego Ideas, if you feel inclined to support or share it: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/113997 You can also see these and additional pictures in better quality through Flickr: https://www.flickr.c...157655165310134 Feel free to add any suggestions or questions in the comments if I missed anything.
  16. The Luctor is back! And it's back with a bang hitched to it. A €600, 2.5kg, 2500pcs, one year build-time bang. And the video is on YouTube. Check out a more elaborate review on http://www.mocpages....moc.php/414168. To give you a hint: this is the first ever forage wagon made out of Lego bricks that can actually pick up grass and dispose it when the cargo is full. It took over one year to build, the pickup system for the grass alone cost me a full-time week! A picture says more than a thousand words, click here to see them all on brickshelf: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=556822 Watch the video here: More about the Luctor itself (this video has already sometime ago been posted here)

  18. A visit to Carn

    As part of a widespread campaign, the Faith has begun sending priests to all corners of the continent in order to spread their message. These priests travel in many ways, depending on the path to their destination. Some walk, some ride horses or chobos, some simply go outside, and others travel in large wagons. Thanks to the high quality roads in the more civilized parts of Kaliphlin, the man assigned to Carn was able to use on of these. Some are less than happy to see the large wagon rolling into their town... ...while others look on eagerly. A few of the city's older institutions aren't exactly thrilled about this developement. Hopefully the guards will catch on to the tension and defuse the situation. ____________________________________________________________________________________ Visit to Carn by Carson Haupt, on Flickr Here's the build without the cart, it lets you see how it's laid out a bit better. Visit to Carn by Carson Haupt, on Flickr And here's a great example of overestimating your collection! Visit to Carn by Carson Haupt, on Flickr The wagon was the first thing I built, around three months ago, and I really like it. It was based in this: http://www.games-workshop.com/en-US/Volkmar-the-Grim-on-The-War-Altar-of-Sigmar although it changed considerable during construction. I was definitely channeling Gideon for this build, I hope you don't mind and I hope I didn't butcher your style! I would also like to claim the following credits: Roofing (for the grassy roofs) Life in Kaliphlin City Scene
  19. Everyone remembers the 9V Train's sub-theme "My Own Train"... or if you don't and are wondering what I'm talking about look here on Bricklink for a list of all the sets in that theme: http://www.bricklink...ing=124.315.694 The passenger aspect of this sub-theme is covered by this set, #10015: Passenger Wagon. (seen in this stock Bricklink photo below) Also, I might suggest you look at -R8-'s 2011 Reviewer's Academy review of the set here on Eurobricks: http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=59018 Everyone loves a classic, and the set deserves the affection if gets. However, it really lacks variety if you have a whole train of these running around. I asked myself these questions: Where does the baggage / mail go? Where are the end tail lights? Why am I talking to myself? Thus, I built my own version, which I plan on getting in real life soon (if not next): I went ahead and added inter-car walkways, giving it less a 1870's feel and more a 1910's look, plus two sliding doors for the combination baggage / passenger car. A small rear platform for the observation car was added, as were 1/2 stud recessed doors for platform access. These coaches are also build-able in tan, dark purple, reddish brown, white, black, and red. They are to be pulled by engine #4613 around my layout: (EDIT: 7/22/14: Updated the photo of the engine to a more recent screenshot... now I just need to take a real life photo!) What do you think? Comments, questions, and complaints welcome!
  20. Vardo (Romani Wagon)

    ARg! Sorry I should have put [MOC] at the front of the Topic Title, but I cannot figure out how to change the title now that it is sumbitted. If someone can tell me how I would be very appreciative. I have been thinking of doing this project for years. But I was always too busy and could not quite figure out how it would work. Trying to cram a lot of curvy color into a Lego build can be pretty daunting. And then on top of that, making it as complex and "Modular style" on the inside as possible. I had a real blocker though. I wanted one of the figures to have a Lute...how do you build a Lute in Lego. Well, this kept just taking up brain space, kept distracting me. So I finally brought it up with my friend Alatariel. We turned it into a personal Iron Builder challenge. And that really just broke ope the dam. Even the Lute itself, just 3 elements was a collaboration that brought out the best of our styles. All in all this is probably one of my favorite personal builds. I keep working on the Cabinet though...cramming that much detail into such a tight space is a real challenge. The dimension of the bed worked out perfectly though and the dead space under it really allowed me to add a lot of detail on the back. Getting that ring in the middle of the "diamond" takes up a LOT of real-estate. This last piece is a "zoom in" on the Lute. If you are familiar with Patrick Rothfuss and his Kingkiller Chronicle series of books, well, this is where I got the idea for building a Vardo. They are real things. But reading the books is what got me wanting to build one. The guy on the Left is a "portrait" of the Author that I figure fans might get a kick out of. If you really like this you can vote for it on Cuusoo
  21. My younger brother, age 11, built this scene. After meeting with his friends, Kendrick prepared for another journey. This time he was traveling with his friends as a trader. Their wagon contains tools and cloth: Credit for tree design goes to Mark of Falworth. He would appreciate any feedback
  22. Hi all, My train fever persist I am so glad to present my version of the RENFE Car-Transport wagon DDMA-9500 Series made with Technic Liftarms. The real wagon: My Creation: Boguies detail Details Doors/ramp function animation The wagon lean due the clearance of the connecting axle The composition with the Yellow Shunting Engine and RENFE Bed-car 9600 Series Note: This wagon do not work in lego curves, only work in smooth curves I hope you enjoy it
  23. Well, presenting another Köf...with wagons DSB Litra Køf The Danish State Railways (DSB) shunter Køf was the Danish built version by Frichs of the legendary German Köf (Kleinlokomotive, Öl-antrieb durch dieselmotor, kraftübertragung mit Flüssigkeitbetriebe). 40 Køf shunters were built from the year 1966 to 1969 and a few are still in service today. Scale: 1:45 Lenght: 17 bricks Width: 8 bricks Bricks: 270 Motortype: 9v or PF Model built: 2012 Easy access to the IR Receiver: Either 9v or PF can be used to run the model but PF requires the PF train motor to be connected to the older 9v battery box by extension wire in a very tight fit with little room to spare. DSB Litra Gs (I) Danish State Railways (DSB) classic 2-axle covered wagons with sliding doors Litra Gs (I) were built in Denmark by Scandia in huge numbers (2.871) from the year 1953-1964. A few are still used today Scale: 1:50 Lenght: 26 bricks Width: 7 bricks Bricks: 518 Model built: 2013 The doors can be opened though not by sliding: Distance between the fixed wheels are 12 bricks and goes through points and curves ok but with some resistance: Access through the roof: DSB Gs (I) wagons pushed by DSB Køf:
