  1. 1,500 parts for new rigs? Check!

  2. BrickOwl or BL? They appear virtually the same...

      @~JD~ does BrickOwl use invoices or can I purchase all 35 of my lots in one go?

    2. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      That I don't know, @HenryH BCFD would know since he uses Brickowl.

      I find Brickowl to be more user friendly in terms of finding what I need. In terms of price they are both roughly the same depending on which stores you buy from.

    I know how to work this gap in real bricks but LDD and SNOT don't mix

      Build the center compartment sideways or see if you can bring the sides up where the plates will meet evenly again. I'd also recess the round tiles and only use one on the center compartment.

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      @~JD~ tried sideways but if I do that I can't attach anything where those lights above the wheel is

    3. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      If it's a two door center compartment then the handle will be more forward, with that you could attach a 1x1 brick with a stud on the side facing down where you can attach plates.

  4. Sutphen is unveiling a 108' rearmount at FDIC. The body on it does not look so great

      Edward O.

      I can't find it now lol

      The ladder has such a long overhang. It's like they tried to put a rear mount ladder on a mid mount body lol

    3. Sven

      Sven

      @Michael, that's not that much overhang for Germans xD We deal with that on almost every German ladder truck ;)

  5. new brush truck in works!

  6. RIP FDNY FF Tolley

    1. Sven

      Sven

      Yes, very tragic circumstances caused his dead. We sent a proper donation via FDNY Foundation to William N. Tolley's Children's Educational Fund which will support his daughter.

  7. 2nd version of midmount should be up later

  8. How do I work functional outriggers into LDD?

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      What exactly are you asking, how to make working outriggers on LDD or how to make them function on LDD?

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      How to make them work when I actually build it

    3. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Well you can make a channel in the body that is big enough for a sideways brick to fit (two studs tall I believe) and that gives you the in and out function, the only issue is keeping them in there. Another option that most people do is use a headlight brick and attach the stabilizer face to it and when they extend it they just add a brick or two behind the face.

  9. Does LDD not have the fence piece with the end cut at a 45 degree angle?

    1. T.J. Brammer

      T.J. Brammer

      Nope, those are homemade parts.

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      No I just bought some yesterday 

    3. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      If you're talking about these https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=3185#T=C with a 45 degree cut on the end, then they're custom made. 

  10. Rosenbauer Avenger anyone?!

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Nope. Rosenbauer is as bad as Ferrara, spend to much time in the shop.

  11. My tower finally has an all-blue Velocity slope 

  12. Take a look at my doodle in the gallery 

  13. My brother being a ****** superglued my tower ladder's aerial to the turntable and now I need new parts cuz I had to rip 'em off... I'm just going to replace em.

     

    I've got a tiller on the drawing board just for fun (quiller actually)

     

    Who woulda thought, I made another weird color scheme

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Soak the parts in warm water with dawn dish soap and a little rubbing alcohol. It should remove the super glue after a few hours. Scrubbing it with the same solution after soaking may also help, just use a rag or sponge, something that won't scratch up the surface.

  14. Happy Birthday TJ!!

    1. T.J. Brammer

      T.J. Brammer

      Thank you, sorry for the late reply, I have been busy.

  15. Anyone interested in doing a buildoff?

    1. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      I'm not hosting it I just want to enter one 

  16. workin' on a 1997 lance with the sloped rear 

  17. connecting 5-wide cab to 6-wide body anyone??

    1. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Yeah I've got it in bricks; can't get LDD to go for it though... thanks though 

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      @Harrison McNeill wait you're alive OH MY GODDDDDDDD

      Sometimes LDD makes me want to punch a hole through my computer

  18. New Pierce in the works, I think a 4x4 with a front-mount pump 

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Seems interesting, but why this configuration?

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Because A) I want to and B) I want to, practicality can suck it

    3. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Mkay, was just curious as to why. Don't see many front mounts in the LFC so to hear you're building one peaked my curiosity.

  19. How do I align the wheels on a 5-wide?

    1. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Got it, nevermind 

  20. LDD is such a b**tch. I'm gettin kinda tired of it

    1. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      My account got hacked, someone please delete this

  21. I've updated my company to Brick Village Emergency. 

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Mhmm, now why exactly did your company use your lego community name and not a different one?

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Because it's located in Brick Village [similar to Brickwater Apparatus, located in Brickwater] and because I decided that 'United Emergency' was neither fitting nor revealing. I also really couldn't come up w/ anything else.

  22. Striped my tanker, just need some sticker paper for decals now.

  23. I'm not entirely sure if I want to post my tanker; what do y'all think?

    1. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      I'll be honest, that's a dumb question, the answer will always be "yes". When in the history of history has someone said "no, don't post it"?

    2. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      I dunno, but I just don't feel like taking pics lol

  24. Tanker is almost finished. The porta pond was being a b!otch with the body style I'm working with so I made it a slide-out.

  25. OPEN FOR DEBATE:

    LDD: Outlines or no outlines?

    I can go either way. I think that no outlines look a lot cleaner and more realistic. However, in the same sense, the outlines represent real bricks better and make stuff easier to differentiate. What's everyone's opinion?

    1. Edward O.

      Edward O.

      Umm... yeah... I dunno... lol

    2. ~JD~

      ~JD~

      Well that clears up everything!

    3. HenryH BCFD

      HenryH BCFD

      Outlines look better in my opinion and help me see what I've done better.
