  1. Getting there, any thoughts, good or bad. (not crazy about how low the actuator is). Still needing to run the axle up front for that, possible on both sides. (Bit more progress, finally time to smooth out the details). Still rough, waiting for parts. New here, and hoping I understood correctly to post new projects here. (Images on Bricksafe). About 3/4 done a 66 by 25 stud tandem flat deck for the "newish" Defender (also modded, black on green colour scheme, with eBay decal sheet, lifted, solid hitch, bumper tow bar attachment points, and a few others). Has 4 wheel independent suspension, with about (2.5 to 3 studs changed), of travel at each wheel with springs, a fold down ramp using one short linier ram, and a fold up dolly wheel at the front. Still lots of little things to finish, any advice on scaling, or tricks of any kind are very much welcome. Edit: now 4 to 5 studs of travel. Trying to use as many olive green panels, and black beams I can, but still waiting on a few more parts, so it's a bit of a VW Harley Quinn. I'm hoping my image works, but haven't much lunch getting the format small enough to post. If this isn't the right place to do this, please let me know, but I'm sure I don't need to ask that. Happy to be here and thoughts and feed back would he fantastic. (Still trying for an image, think this should work) Hope this works. If I have replied to your comment 1000 times, sorry. I don't know what I'm doing, quoting seams to be the rule, no idea if it's done right.
  2. This ship was heavily inspired by set 4195 (Queen Anne's Revenge) for the ship itself and set 31109 for the brick-built sails + pirate flag. The vessel is named the "Hell Bent", and is crewed by sailors-turned-demons, led by Captain Victor "Jawbone" Blucher. It will be built after the "Silver Crab" pirate ship is done. The vessel has eight cannons ready to fire at a moments notice. The rear of the ship has the nameplate on the stern, right below the custom brick-built pirate flag. The model has a removable steering area for access to the captain's quarters, which has a desk and chair with two wall lanterns nearby. Captain Victor (the figure on the right side) lost his lower jaw after a pistol shot at a vision of The Man Upstairs rebounded unto him, and was turned into a demon (along with his crew) by said entity for his crime against nature. He also gained an painful iron jawbone as an additional punishment, and so he could communicate with his crew verbally. The Hell Bent and it's crew have roamed the 7 seas for about 28 years now, only allowed to enter a port once every seven years for a week. Just like the legendary storm-tossed Flying Dutchman and it's infernal crew, this ship is a bad omen at sea for merchants, but strangely is considered a good one for pirates, since it was a pirate ship to begin with. Usually, if the ship is sighted by a merchant ship, the crewmate who saw it will then die and join the demon-crew's ranks, but for pirates, it is allowed to get closer to exchange news of the world via bags of mail / news clippings / etc. sent over in waterproofed bags. (In reality, I'm going to use Nexo Knights lava soldiers' heads and torsos for the crew and captain.) If you have any thoughts, questions, complaints, suggestions, or comments, please post them below!
  3. This hotel was inspired partially by the B model in set 31069 and partially by a prototype 1920's theme LEGO tested sometime in the 1990's as seen below: (not my pic, seen here first.) My version of the building is modular with four levels, with four rooms, a lobby level, and the roof / tower that lift away. The neon sign out front is double-sided, and can be read from either left or right sides, while the awning above the door should say RITZ in printed 1 x 1 tiles. The rear and front of building features a ton of windows, while the left and right sides feature none, due to this model being placed in close proximity with other buildings. The "L" shape of this building gives it a unique feel, in my opinion. The lower floor currently features a check-in desk with cash register, piano, dining room table and several seats. The second floor features two separate rooms with a bed, desk with lamp, table, chairs, and a record player in each. Third floor also features the same stuff as the second floor. NOTE: Here's the LDD file of the whole model. As usual, comments, questions and complaints always welcome! EDIT 2/25/18: added two more rooms a better styled roof with revised color scheme and an updated LDD file. This model is now on the to-build list, to be built sometime later this year.
  4. Here is my 2016 layout, with most of the items already built, but some still remain to be purchased. Here is a complete list of what's on my tables, not including trains or automobiles because they can be rotated on or off the layout very easily. All of this sits on three very carefully arranged 30 inch by 72 inch tables. Now for the reality check: This is the current state of my trains and town layout. I don't have any other space for things on the table, as below the tables and in the closet is full of Lego bins, either color sorted in slide-out drawers, former model chunks in bins, or put together in customized paper boxes. Here we see the entire layout and compared to the nice chart I posted earlier, it's bit of a mess. The water models area has a police station and Cloud Cuckoo Land in it, and the left hand town area next to the station has my clock radio and assorted stuff for models not yet built. The rail yard is mostly put together, with my streamlined 4-8-2 steamer and diesel PA / PB units getting ready for their day of work. The steam loco is arriving at the coaling / water towers to refuel while the ALCO units are going to be switched onto the mainline to pull it's assigned express train. (The train is not on the table to save space and keep it from getting too dusty.) The town is mostly there, with the streetcars rounding the curves onto and off the main street. The sections only needs two 90 degree (X) crossings to be finished. Now you may be thinking it's really bad, but it is a lot better than it was, and still has a ways to go. It's all about baby steps toward the larger goal of having my dream layout, something I have always wanted since seeing my Dad's layout when I was 5 or 6. For those wondering, here's my ideal layout's items.... most of them I have already, but a half-dozen or so I don't own yet. This layout contains the following track sections: 3 - Right switches 3 - Left switches 62 - Straight segments 46 - Curved segments 2 - 90 degree rail crossing (still needed) 1 - Double rail crossover This layout contains the following train facilities: - Truss bridge - Ironwood Train station -Trolley Stop (still needed) - Water and coal refueling stations - Double stall train shed This layout contains the town buildings: - Sinister Victorian Mansion - Stone Bank - Western Saloon - Thunder's office - Town Hall (still needed) - Military Surplus store - Tudor style House - Model Rocket store - Tavern - Train club meeting house - Railway Headquarters (still needed) This layout contains the following miscellaneous other items: - Tramp steam ship - Lighthouse - Car ferry - Leisure vessel (still needed) - Rural Cabin Comments and feedback would be really appreciated!

    [WIP] Starkiller Base

    Hello all! I'm sure just about all of you have seen The Force Awakens now... in The Force Awakens, the scene that I wanted to most create in lego was the Starkiller Base speech scene, with all the Stormtroopers and Officers in the crowd, and General Hux presenting his speech prior to the destruction of Hosnian Prime. Note, I will update this as I have more progress. I've been working on this for a couple of weeks now, and I'm pretty happy with the outcome so far. But no where near done, in fact i'd say it may be only about 10-15% done at the current state. I'm going to make this HUGE. Now, instead of getting the majority of the big lego star wars force awakens related, but rather I've mainly been getting a lot of the Battlepacks that came out somewhat recently, and I plan to replicate that scene the best I can, with tons of baseplates, tons of minifigures.. Well it's not all planned out yet, but let me show you what I have so far. I'm sure others have thought about or are even doing the very same idea, and I also look forward to seeing some other versions out there at a later time. So, here it is so far. "Today is the end of the Republic! The end of a regime that acquiesces to disorder! At this very moment, in a system far from here the New Republic LIES to the GALAXY while secretly supporting the treachery of the loathsome Resistance. This fierce machine which you have built, upon which we stand, will bring an end to the Senate! To their cherished fleet! All remaining systems will bow to the First Order! And will remember this... as the last day of the Republic!" ―General Hux Starkiller Base, Update by Brick Capone, on Flickr Starkiller Base Updates by Brick Capone, on Flickr image by Brick Capone, on Flickr I found the all plain white at the back of the base a bit boring, so I decided to add a Starkiller Base hallway with a bridge overhead like you see in the movie. Anyway, tell me what you think for now, and we'll see what it looks like at the end, which will be in a long time.
  6. I have decided to make a Ferrari 250 GTO and decided to bring it here for constructive criticism and the likes, so here it is. The first picture I took of it. Ferrari 250 GTO Wip by T.timman, on Flickr Left side view with my sig-fig on top. Ferrari 250 GTO Wip by T.timman, on Flickr Rudimentary rear axle for test purposes. Ferrari 250 GTO Wip by T.timman, on Flickr The bottom Ferrari 250 GTO Wip by T.timman, on Flickr The front, showing the front suspension (which at the time is the only suspension it has) Ferrari 250 GTO Wip by T.timman, on Flickr It currently is in a "see if it works" stage, I will be adjusting the rear to live axle soon. I look forward to sharing more of this with all of you when it starts take shape.
  7. YV-545 light freighter The YV-545 had a cylindrical hull, with the cockpit mounted to the side like most CEC designs. The YV-545 was considered to be sturdier and more maneuverable than the YT-series vessels, though lacked the visual appeal of the YT-1300 light freighter. In flight the cockpit rotated 90 degrees to be on top of the starship, while the body remained beneath. Though the ship could land in this configuration as well, most buyers saw this design as too complex.[1] Its body was ringed by sensors and maneuvering thrusters, which gave it exceptional maneuverability. It could rival most starfighters in performance and was a popular ship with smugglers and pirates, who liked to modify the YV-545 into an attack ship. - for now cca. 3500 bricks - 86 studs long - 99% studless - no interior for now ATM workign on cockpit interior, landing gear and escape pods, still some work left.
  8. This is the first version of a Human LEGO Segway. Currently you have to balance it yourself and there are 2 safety rotacaster wheels to stop you falling off. It uses 4 NXT's and 8 motors and is controlled by 2 Hitechnic accelerometers. It uses 2 LEGO Hailfire wheels.

    WIP Airship

    I try not to turn to outside sources much for my builds, but when I have to do them solely on Digital Designer, at first, for the cost I find myself wanting help and encouragement. Pixels are much less satisfying than actual plastic. So, here is my latest airship. It is quite a departure to some of my other stuff, being much bigger in scale. Please tell me what you think. I need to know if it's worth continuing or if I should scrap it. The problem with it, really, is the cost of actual bricks. I would love any advice on how to finish it and also on if it's worth the price (I estimate it will be +100 US dollars). Comments/Criticism Appreciated!
  10. Okay. Before anyone starts hating because "Oh that's too much like Kenner and Hasbro, oh no!" that's not what this is. Each box/kit/whatever will include a building component. Although some elements may resemble each other, don't tell me I copied or anything. So what this is is boxes with individual figures AND BUILDING ELEMENTS (along with buildable display stands) from all six movies (e.g. Luke Skywalker), major video games (e.g. Revan) and comics (e.g. K'Kruhk), both Clone Wars series (Otua Blank), and any other major characters (Jaxxon, T'ra Saa). Minifigures released together in a wave can be grouped together to make groups that may be expanded on later in the series (e.g. Obi-Wan and Commander Cody are released in one wave, and the next wave has a 212th clone trooper). The minifigures will be made as effeciently as possible so that LEGO won't have to waste money on new molds. NOTE: I'M AWARE THAT THIS CUUSOO PROBABLY WON'T BE CHOSEN, BUT IT MAY GIVE LEGO AN IDEA FOR THE FUTURE I'll update with images, and additional info
