RC ICE 3
About this creation

Hi everyone!
Fortunately I have the time to upload my newest creation! It's a train and it's the model of an ICE 3. It is 196 stud (157 cm) long and contains more than 3300 pieces, two IR receivers, two battery boxes and two train motors. Hope you like it! Oh, and another important information is, that it will be visible on Zusammengebaut 2016 in November and on Bricks am Meer in April 2017 in Germany!


At first please watch these two videos! The first one shows a crash. The place, where I made the video, wasn't horizontal, and on the slope the train got a too high speed… The records of the second one were made after I repaired the train. Well, I can say it is quite stable construction, despite the building techniques of the front. During the crash, only the boogies fell down!





I'm really happy, that it is ready! It took me almost a year to build and become satisfied with the result. You may know, if someone build a train, the front is the most important thing. If it's not good, it's unnecessary to build the other sections. Everything started with an LDD model from a front-idea. I built something in the program, but I didn't like it. Later it came always into my mind and didn't allow me to be calm. So I started to develope the construction. Some month later it looked nice enough to order some parts and make it in real life. It contained so many interesting and strange techniques, that it was a real challenge to put the bricks together in the program, and with real bricks it was hard, too. And the real 3D model was ugly! But I said, that it has to be possible to find out something, which makes the model better. So I made some changes, and some more, and some more, and finally I liked it, and I thoght that I found the maximum! I stored the train (only the front section) and some other parts on the table in the middle of our house. And one night, I couldn't sleep. I woke up and went out to the table to do something. And I don't know why, but I put an element into the middle of the front. And I said 'wow'! It was perfect (for me of course, for you, I still don't know, but I will read the comments :) )! Some gaps disappeared, some sections got new positions. That element made so big changes on the overall look, that it was incredible! I felt high, but next day I was very sleepy. :D



























Thanks for visiting!

Absolutely fantastic work. I love this. The shaping is excellent and very clever. The power functions train components are not easy to work with as it's hard to conceal the battery box, receiver and wires and you've nailed it considering the fact you've got 2 of each, that is a great feat in itself and I'm very impressed.

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde Szia! Wondeful recreation of the ICE 3. Dang, that's some sweet shaping on the front, gotta love the pantographs, too. Lots of details all over. Great piece of work! ~cheers
Thank you! Köszi! :)

Quoting Sven J. Oh that's the project you were talking about in your comment at my firetruck ;) Yeah, I noticed it immediately but forgot to leave a nice comment. Sorry for that, got a bit sidetracked with other things and jetlag XD So is this the one I can drive and crashtest in November? LOL. Really really cool work my friend. It's definitely one of the best ICE trains I've seen so far in Lego. Congrats my friend! Can't wait to see you in November again too!
Thaaank you very much! :D Crashtest? Be careful! Skyscrapers are not so stable... Just kidding! ;)

Quoting Deus "Big D." Otiosus Amazing front. Who needs specialty pieces when you have imagination, am I right? I would love to see less gaps there, but it could probably not have been done any better. Also, I would like to see the skill level used at the front to show in the middle sections as well, while I have no idea if that would look good or even be possible.
Thanks, I'm glad you like it! I don't plan to take it apart, because it is difficult to build again. But if it will have an accident, I will take pictures about the inner things!

Quoting Marin Stipkovic I wasn't familiar with the real train so I looked it up and - good job, Gabor! Perhaps the front should be a bit more pointy, but other than that - well done. And don't worry, working on a single model for a year or two is quite common. You used the time well. ;)
Thanks! :) Yeah, now I know, that it was worth, but during the building period it was hard!

That front is superb, especially considering how little the shape of this train and that of LEGO pieces have in common. And great work on the overall shape ;-)

Quoting Nick Barrett The front is much stronger than it looks, judging by the crash video... and it's beautifully built. You've chased down the gaps and banished them! Lovely work.
Thank you! :) Yeah, it was a sweet surprise after the crash, that the front is in one piece!

Fantastic looking IC train set! Top notch in shaping of that front end, and the brick-built IC is a nice touch. Excellent work!

A real beauty! It may have been a long project but it was totally worth it, for us anyway! The shaping and color work are both top notch!!

Hi Gabor. I know exactly nothing about LEGO trains. But this is just amazing. A year in the making, and not giving up until it feels right. That I do know about! I really like the overall build. Especially the color scheme, and the integrated 'ICE'-logo. You get the Spinal Tab score: 11/10. Per
