E-2 HoverTrain
About this creation

Passengers waiting for the train to arrive.

Hovertrains were trains, that often served as shuttles between islands. They are much faster than ferries and more convenient than planes. Boarding is easy, though there usually are platforms, you could just stop anywhere and get on or off. The lenght of those trains varied, some had up to 16 sections. Smaller ones, like the E-2, were often devided into passenger and freight compartments. But the range of application was not limited to oversea travel only, they saw use in many inlands too.









Notes: I just remember that I started to build a starfighter, with that cockpit solution you see there, and somehow it ended up as a train. I like it though, it's something different and the snot-work was quite fun to build. It's not minifig-scale I fear, it's rather to scale with Lego's trains. There is no interior and I won't build one, sorry. There are stickers on the windscreen to hide those Res-Q pattern. I really like that windscreen piece, but it's a pity that you can't get it without patterns.

Thanks for looking and feel free to comment! ;)

The greebles on the back and bottom are really well-executed. Nice work with the slopes, curves, and arches you've used to shape this beauty. The paint job is cool too, the stripes and outlined cockpit really look nice.

This is an excellent and unique concept. I like the greebs for the engines. It just looks really good. One thing I would like however is for there to be some cars to pull along behind it. That would remind me more of an actual train. ~T

Quoting Doctor Sushi Beautiful job, again. I was wondering if you were joining the 2010 MOCathalon? If so, you're invited to join my, Rusty S, Erik C, and robert ball's team. We have to have one more AFOL. Of course, you don't have to join our team. (We're just desperate :P)
No, I won't join, sorry! But good luck to your team and thanks for asking. ;)

Another excellent moc, space pirate! I love the sleek design, combined with the fantastic concept of a hover train. very well done!

  January 22, 2010
The concept is somewhat poetic and very cool. I'm fond of the side stripes, very well done ! It could have been a blocky MOC but you've managed to come with a very refined design, with an uncommon windscreen and superb greebles. Fantastic MOC, and really a great concept !

Amazing! It's very sleek, and the color stripes are incorporated nicely. Great coc*pit too, it is perfectly blended into the body, but the best part is all those greebles! Awesome job.

Absolutely LOVE the work you did on the underside. But, regardless, a good clean build with some nice color work throughout. Very cool.

Thanks everybody for your comments. I'm glad you like it :)
Quoting Dylan B You have a good design here. The engines/hoverers were built to perfection and your photoshop isn't half bad either. The rest is just a bit too plain and blocky, but does not take away from the look much. 7.5/10. -Dylan
If you look closer you will soon notice that my photoshop skills aren't that great :P Regarding the blockyness...I understand that a futuristic hovertrain offers a good opportunity to design a rather streamlined or futuristic vehicle, but I wanted to preserve the classic train look. Let's say, it's a future retro of the present. ;)

This is so cool! It looks like something that could really happen in the future. The train is sleek and the greebles are greebly. Love the engines!

I love it. The idea is very original, and the snot technique you used is well done and seems natural. I like the details used on the engines.

Cool. That sort of train actually appears feasible... Those hover engines are the most detailed ones I've ever seen... so much greebling.... I wish I could do that... :P

That design is incredible, to say the least. (to say the most would require two and a half hours on thesaurus dot com along with plenty of coffee and absolute silence) Oops, tangent... Anyway, incredible build all around. The greebles are exceptional, and the building technique you used is phenomenal! Excellent work.

I agree with Master Shifu. This is a great idea. It's like Lego city in the future. The train would be a very convenient means of transportation. I like the way it looks like a train, but has an air of advanced technology around it. Great work.

Cool concept! You may just have started a new theme (unless I'm oblivious of that fact)! XD
