An upgraded version of my LEGO Ideas project, The Old Workhorse - Traction Engine.
About this creation
This is a new version of my MOC, The Old Workhorse - Traction Engine. The original version was digitally rendered but this new version is built with real bricks. I've had to alter the colour scheme to reflect currently available Lego bricks and have also made some subtle changes to the design. Hope you like it.
This model is currently live on LEGO Ideas. If you'd like to see it made in to an official Lego set then I'd be really very grateful if you could please give it your vote over on the LEGO Ideas site. Many thanks. :) LEGO Ideas The Old Workhorse
Thanks very much. I'm pleased to say my model is featured in the latest LEGO Ideas newsletter that was emailed out yesterday. There is a feature in there all about an exhibition I took the model to recently.
Quoting Jeremy McCreary
Excellent model with lots of play value (if the details are secure). Nice scene, too.
Many thanks. I tried to design the model so that it would appeal to adults but I also wanted it to have a sort of "play set" feel, so that children would like it too.
I made a few minor alterations to the design since my original rendered model (which I've added to MOCpages too) and I'm pleased with how strong and stable the brick built version has turned out.
