A long, slender train coach done using the style of Holger Matthes's ICE train. Hope you enjoy!
About this creation
Here are some extra photos of the whole train coach
The technique. A 1x8 TECHNIC brick can connect the roof segment to the underbelly of the car, as seen. The side wall rests on the bogeys and is attached using a SNOT technique using angular bricks. The belly is connected by a knobbed brick attached, with a plate to a sideways double-knobbed brick connected to a holed 1x1 brick that connects to the 1x8 technic brick. Understand? Well, it maybe easier to look at the photos ;-).
This contraption provides extra stability for the sidewall. It connects three 2x12 planks that are .6 studs apart in this model.
Popular SNOT windows. Thanks, James!
The same contraption is using to separate the from belly part attached to the bogey, seen here, the blue brick are technic. There are angulars there as well. A trained eye can point them out. The bridge between cars is centered and is 5 studs wide.
The roof segment:
Originally, identical to the lego ICE 3, the 4-stud wide centre stacks and SNOTS 2 bow bricks. Since the train is 54-studs, bow bricks cant only be used, since they only come in units of 2x4. I had to use a roofing technique similar to the design of the bowed roof. i came concocted this:
The 1x1 bricks are knobbed on both sides. a 1x3 flat plat attaches the the blue angular bricks that, and the roof tiles, are conjoined by another double-knobbed brick. You can see how it all fits together
