  1. Some point in the future I plan on ordering some Kenworth/Pierce engines

    1. ~JD~


      Nice. Looking for an off-road type of engine to serve the rural zones.

  2. can someone please go into further detail on how you upload your parts list to BrickLink

  3. There hasn't been a new member in over a year. This is mildly concerning 

  4. Finally got some working stabilizers on Tower 2 but they're a pain in the *** to actually set up

  5. 1,500 parts for new rigs? Check!

  6. 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?

    3. ~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.

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

    4. ~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. 

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

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

    4. Sven


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

  9. new brush truck in works!

  10. RIP FDNY FF Tolley

    1. 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.

  11. 2nd version of midmount should be up later

  12. How do I work functional outriggers into LDD?

    1. ~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~


      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.

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

    1. T.J. Brammer

      Nope, those are homemade parts.

      No I just bought some yesterday 

    3. ~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. 

  14. Rosenbauer Avenger anyone?!

    1. ~JD~


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