What do you think?
Oh, and if your wondering, it is a real loco: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_Pacific_4460
There's a few more pics on my flickr. Enjoy!
With the cockpit open:
Funny feeling when someone else posts a pic of MOC that was only a digital model in your LDD file before! :o)
If anyone would like a copy of the file check out this thread :o)
A few things have intervened to prevent me from really getting into it. The parts from box one are on the table and I've read what has to be the most impressive lego instruction book of all time. This is a great set. You don't have to be a SW fan to like it. 10188 transcends Star Wars. It is a brilliant design and a real triumph by Lego. Ive been highly critical of some lego sets. I really think 10243 sucks and is a lazy effort at expanding the appeal of the modular building series. I thought certain aspects of the VW van build were poorly thought out and frustrating. Just beginning the 10188 build, well, it's impressive and I don't see where I'll have much to complain about. I'll comment more in about a week our so. Happy building!
I just can't think of anything. I've even looked at the hero factory stuff, but nothing is doing it for me yet. Dragon wings, fire swords, whips etc, there's plenty of options, but the head? It's such an unusual design.
Whereas a brick/constraction built approach (i don't mean exactly like those hero factory's, but just incorporating the general idea for flexibility), would enable a more dynamic range of pose befitting the beast on screen, have a bit more otherworldly 'edge' to its appearance due to the slightly inorganic parts, benefit from individually moulded features (face, shoulders, feet, wings, torso, etc), and enable something much larger and imposing than the troll-sized mr blobby with wings that a single-moulded piece might be. And it could even incorporate lights/lightbricks due to the buildable nature of it.
But it'll be a small miracle if they do it in any form. I'll take either, just to have it done.
I just need to order some stuff from BL now...
Anyone know of a good way to mount a baseplate to the wall? I don't want to use Kragle.
