my one will never be that good, just dont have the room (my street display will be on the same table that i build big sets on. [i did wall-e on my bed hehe.] so 25% of the space on the table has to be saved for building/MOC-ing on.)
Speaking of MOC-ing.
i did this MOC Build today. using #60044 as a starting point and added some parts from other sets that i am not using right now.
ok so it a simple change. but it works well. i can tell you that roof on that truck was Not easy. that is what eat up my time to work out how to do it with the limited parts i had. this truck will fit in better with the street plan i have in my head.
u get a snot piece, brown bricks, some tan. nice blue tiles. and a snowman.
the only brown bricks i have are from olaf summertime + coles earth dragon + 2x Brick, Arch 1 x 6 x 3 1/3 Curved Top
I have to say it'll look sharp with the Brick Bank. As soon as I get that and six other modulars built.
its a cute little model.
small to, seeing as it's 300 odd parts.
and i now have a minifig of Jar Jar Binks, he will of course be used as target practice for my Nexo Knights. maybe i will do a Nexo Knights dungeon MOC, just so i can lock away Jar Jar in it.
i would love to see how it turns out.
Here's an update on the layout. Most of the big stuff is done. I install the GBHQ that Zon and his son built for me. It's not in an ideal position, but I wanted to be able to open it up and show it to the crowd. Now I want to install lighting in it! But that will have to wait. The monorail installation was going well until I discovered that it is too low for trains to pass under so will have to elevate it another 4 bricks....only to discover that in my huge collection the basic 2x4 brick seems to be in rather short supply. Next up will be detailing with people, trees, and goofy things for the kids to find like that new CMF skunk.
to read more out the MOC and see more Images look here
Sorted my upward slant by shape and my white 2x2 by condition. Want some pieces in the right color, and corner rather than edge slants.
i ve built the truck some weeks agoe without parts list. just instructions and search parts for every new step.... i am afraid to do the same with the trailer and helicopter!
tempted to dismantle truck --> sort parts with parts list --> start fresh
or are there any partslists for each assembly (truck, heli, trailer) ?
i now have all the parts that i placed orders for :)
so when that is done i will post up some images for you all :)
I've decided, however, to almost completely re-build the underlying frame of the model, in order to strengthen the whole thing. I need to re-build the upper back section of it anyway, in order to incorporate the windscreen (the frame is completely in the way), and there's other sections where I've added to the initial frame, and the strength of it is less than ideal.
It's going to be quite a big job, but the list of compromises with the frame was getting too big, and re-building most of it will solve all of them in one go and enable the whole thing to be better integrated.
there is one image below. to see more Images of this MOC. you can find 9 more images HERE (http://bricksetforum.com/discussion/comment/417344/#Comment_417344)
please do tell me what you think of this MOC as a lot of time and planning has been placed in to coming up with this MOC.
it a nice model but with the wings being the same you have to repeat the build or build both wings at the same time.
still it looks good. :)
It's now pretty much finished (apart from a few hoses).
It's long. Very long. Ten feet long (over 3 metres), to be precise. It's quite something to behold.
And y'know what? The two PF motors in the front cab pull it easily. No problem at all.
I assume that you've got a substantial amount of track, or does it look like Ouroboros, going round and round? ;-)
Edited to add: I must ask... Do you have a specific plan for such a long train, or is it just "because"? :-)
i would not know ware to stop.
and i just don't have the room. you need...? (what is the smallest space you need for a layout any how?)
i will probably end up getting a train set at some point. i just hope it don't spend all its life packed away never to be seen. like my Hornby Trains do.
over the past 10 hours or so. i have built up #70313 and #75092.
with the #75101 i have done three sets today. with brakes here and there. i have not been building non stop. i did other stuff to. stuff like eat food. :p
what i think of each set. i already commented on #75101 today but i say again, i like it quite a bit.
set #70313 was a bit of a surprise, in that ok i had seen the images on the web but with this set i don't think the posted images you can find on the web do it justest. this set is small yes, but its a fun build. and i think Fits in with the bad guy theme well. i have to admit i spent 10 mins just rolling it along to watch the moving play action at work. relay happy with this set.
next and last is set #75092 and i have to say this set is just WOW!
with all the little parts you get in this set i am very happy whit this set.
the ship is not small. it on par with the Tie. and makes my AAT's i pick up last week look small. the 5 Droids will go well with the Droids i got in my AAT's and i am building My Droids Army faster then i expected to. still a long way to go.
but i still don't see the point of 5000 minifig clones army.
and i at last have a R2-D2. still need a C3-PO.
in all i had a fun day.
The plan is to run it on a large layout like that at shows, but yes, it was also just 'because' :)
I'm also working on another train, which will be even longer.
Oh and I've almost run out of black technic pins.
Finally got started on #41100 Heartlake Private Jet. Only ever had small LEGO planes before. the large front/back pieces really add to the look. the metal detectors are a rather realistic feature - what's next, LEGO cops profiling dark plastic minis?
Yeah, my builds often end up smaller than expected.
Tell us how you really feel about Jar Jar. :)
turned out to be about 6% smaller then i had imaging it to be.
one sticker 1% out of line one of the bigger ones. but if you did not know your not going to see it with out taking a long long look at it.
i on the other had having placed the dam thing. know about it so can see it.
its a good model and a fun build. even had some parts i not seen before, but found out have been around for 15 years.
