The industrious RAILBRICKS team recently brought us yet another issue of their excellent magazine. This time it features layouts, and is thus probably more relevant to non-train builders, with its demonstration of landscaping and detailing. Highlights in this issue include articles on the excellent layout of Alban Nanty, the collaborative layouts of Mike Pianta (scruffulous) and me, and a community spotlight on Hong Kong’s Legend Bricks. Once again the whole team have done an excellent job on this lovely free resource.
RAILBRICKS Issue 10 is now available for download. The new issue features stories covering some fan events from the past summer, as well as tips and building instructions.
This issue focuses on trams but, as usual, there’s plenty of articles for LEGO train fans and LEGO builders in general including
- Catenary design
- PFS Lights
- Building relief structures (facades)
It’s filled to the brim with articles, pictures and ideas for LEGO train fans. It includes articles on: What to Do After That Starter Set?, Billund’s Miniland Trains, Emerald Night Improvements and Fun with Radii as well as a great cover pic (and related photography advice) by Anthony Sava. As usual it’s a great read for fans of LEGO trains and non-fans alike.
Railbricks is putting out a calendar for the first time! I’ve gotten a sneak peek of a couple of the pictures and they are gorgeous. Hopefully this does well enough to be an annual event. They are still working out the pricing and other such details, so look for more information to be forthcoming.
