Hey there, welcome back to the blog! Today I am showing off my SkunkWorks design for an FMC/Spartan Engine. I have always loved these FMC trucks and was inspired to build one after seeing a picture of one in action in Winsted, CT I decided to build one myself. I am very pleased with how this turned out, and I hope you guys like it!
Hey everyone! It is another one of my prototypes! I am proud to present a new Seagrave design specially designed for my large wheel base. This rig is unique because the headlight section is 3 studs tall, rather than the usual 2. The tricky part for this build was not letting it be too much taller than my existing rigs, and I succeeded! This cab design is only a stud taller! Without further ado, here it is:
Here is a comparison picture to show the height difference between this and my other Seagrave designs. Below is Engine 345 of the north district.
Good afternoon everyone! I just finished designing a Rosie cab, my challenge was to build it without any friction fits or glue. the 2 upside down LBG cheese slopes are actually held on by bricks, not glue. Here is an up close of the system:
Hey Everyone, welcome back to the BCSW blog! You all know I am not a fan of Chevy HOWEVER, today I am going to showcase my prototype suburban/tahoe for you. This particular design is made to fit in the scale of most peoples cities and is fitted with more wildland spec tires.
Hey everyone! With college I do not have any real bricks to build with so I have been busy in Studio. After hunting the internet, I settled on the "angled" Ferrara grill as my first Skunkworks project. I have not been able to find a LEGO design like it anywhere, so I began my prototype process.
Fun fact: all upside-down or sideways bricks are in fact connected to the truck, there are no friction or taped bricks.
Shown here is the classic red and black, and a random color scheme I might be using for all Skunkworks (prototype) and North District rigs in the future. All that being said, I finally figured it out and here it is! My custom Ferrara Inferno!
After designing the cab, I moved on to a full truck, so I have created an inferno tower to display the whole truck and cab. So without further ado: Here is the skunkworks Ferrara Inferno tower. Included in the gallery below is a few pictures of the (semi)-functioning outriggers. A 1x2 brick is required to lower them to the ground, but other than that they slide in and out.
The final picture in the gallery is an outrigger system that requires the axle being changed out. The sliding one work great, but it is not as symmetrical.
Hey everyone! This is the page for my prototypes, which I label as the Brickford City Skunkworks rigs.
