Re: Coast Guard MOC

The last number of years it has been held in the PNE Forum building. It has been happening yearly.

It looks like mostly video on the websites. I don't post my pictures.

Re: Coast Guard MOC

Typically it's just been blue baseplates, but with the discussions about the MILS standards, we could also look into water texturing. I've got a bit of blue track that I used for moving the boat around this last Fall at the Train show.

Re: Coast Guard MOC

It may be something we could incorporate into the Train Expo layout in the Fall. If we can expand the water area even more this coming year, it could look fairly nice next to some other ships. I'll also be wanting a little more room to run my tugboat around.

70839 Rexcelsior on sale at Costco

In case you guys haven't blown all of your money on the recent sales on Lego, I think this is a pretty good price and interesting for parts selection. The extra $40 off is only good until the 24th.

Anyone else notice that there is a new line-up of Minion sets for next year. Looks interesting. I'm a fan, for sure.

Buy Deal

I found this site that seems to have a few sets for a pretty good discount from the normal retail. Shipping is not free, so may change the attractiveness of the pricing.

Re: Matt's GBC module thread.

That's just cool. Are you able to switch out the car for a covered wagon, or does it become too heavy for the mechanism? One of these would look great:

So, I'm not sure if these sets are very popular with people, but I thought they were worth picking up at these prices. There are other sales on at Amazon, but these were more than 30% off. 75180 Star Wars Rathtar Escape (CDN$ 58.25): https://www.amazon.ca/LEGO-Star-Rathtar-Escape-75180/dp/B06XRDP31J...
