    This is really delightful.

    So cool! Have a great weekend my friend!
  • Uspez PRO 6y

    This is very, very nice. Seriously nice work on all the details!

    />ylan/>. Not so simple if you look at the instructions. The offsetting makes it a much more complicated build than it first appears.

    But still, simply to the eye. It's just pleasing to see such thought and care at such a small scale ;D

    Very great detail.

    Batman. Nice build!

    Nice build. Have you considered dropping a piano on it?

    What color of blue are you using? The part 51739 (wedge plate 2x4) only exists in dark blue, blue and sand blue and your blue color (looks like medium blue) does not seem to be any of them. Also, in your instructions, there is a 1x3 blue brick (the one beneath the windshield) that does not connect. I had to use a jumper plate (1x2) with two 1x3 plates on top of it instead.
  • Tim Gould PRO 1y

    It's sand blue. Sorry for the mistake in the instructions.
  • Nathan Proudlove 1y

    There's no mistake. The tubes of the 1x3 brick should fit into the top of the technic brick offset by 1/2 without a problem. Your solution works too obviously.

    In that case I take back my apology and congratulate myself on my brilliance ;)

    Thank you for the clarifications. It was indeed my mistake. I built the model using LDD only, to test it and have an easy way to generate an XML parts list. In LDD that connection does not work but now that you guys confirmed that it is supposed to work, I tested it with real bricks and it does work because the studs are hollow. This is a beautiful build, I like the fact that it is made of three independent modules (chassis, body and top), but the mudguard seems a little out of place. According to LDD the ideal connection between the stick holder and the hinge happens unfortunately where there is a stud in the hinge, so not possible (you can see what I mean here: That is why the mudguard needs to be moved to a non-ideal position so that the stick holder and the hinge can connect, then the brick-made mudguard rests in a not-so-good position as the pictures of the real build show. I am at the moment working on a MOD that I developed for the 1931 Ford Model A Pickup by Tyler. I may later try to build for real this one too.

    What I found now is that the brick 1x3 does not exist in sand blue (I confirmed there is none for sale at BL). It is used twice in the model, one of them is that hidden one, not a problem, we can use a similar blue instead but the other is visible, at the bottom back of the vehicle. This one may be better in black, I guess. Also, I see that many of these sand blue parts are kind of rare and expensive. Sand blue _is_ an expensive color... (which makes the model even prettier, for those that can afford it) - EDIT: we can use 3 1x3 plates to make a 1x3 sand blue brick!
  • Tim Gould PRO 1y

    Thanks for the compliment. I'm quite fond of everything except the mudguard. But I haven't got a better solution for the mudguard, unfortunately. You can probably swap Tyler's mudguard design for mine, although I haven't tested it.

    I assume that the 1x3 brick does exist in sand blue since I have one of these made. Unless I found a workaround (my model is in a box somewhere so I can't check). When I made it, I used the sand blue parts I already had which isn't a luxury people with newer collections have. And yes, swapping for plates will work.

    LDD is a bad program to use for testing connections BTW. It is much more restrictive than real bricks. You should always pull out your real bricks and try connections, even if you don't have the right colours.

    I am new to Lego addiction. I have a very small inventory of available pieces since the pieces from the sets I have I do not use because I keep the sets assembled. So almost anything that I need to do I have to first build in LDD so I can know which pieces I have available to use and which to buy once the model looks fine.

    I gave up building your model because I have already spent too much money buying pieces for the 1931 Ford Model A that was indeed the model that I searched first and wanted. But I like better your way of modelling so I actually have just finished designing a hybrid, a 1931 Ford Model A that looks like the one made by Tyler but has ideas from yours (with some new stuff from my own...). I am waiting for the pieces now and when I have it tested and if it looks good, I will show it to you and Tyler.

    I know that LDD has many limitations but it helps me a lot because it has an infinite inventory of pieces so your imagination is the limit (until you try to buy them in BrickLink).

    I ended up bulding your Morris, in dark green.

    Nice :)
