Introducing our Custom Made Monorail Station. I can't take total credit for the idea as it initially came from CarrickWilmot, aka Vlastian. I took his basic rough idea doubled it, improved on the construction and added many of my own personal touches. There was no way that using PlaKids would have looked good as they are way too big for the Monorail and would have stood taller than the doors. HO scale people worked perfectly. I also have all the materials and engineering data collected to create a hanging Monorail Station which will come at a later date as I catch up on some of the other customs I have been working on. Came out quite well if I do say so myself. What do you think?

You will also notice 2 clips of my failed first attempts at stop motion video but I will learn from these first mistakes. I didn't have room to place a tripod nor did I have the right kind as the camera has to be perfectly still for the stop motion to look good. I think a remote controlled shutter would be needed also as pressing the button on the camera to snap a picture moved it slightly which also seemed to create a different lighting correction in some shots.

That is very cool Super. I am still in awe of your layout and the detail and effort you put in it along with this and all of your customs. Big Grin

Wow, that turned out really nice! Had I not known it was a custom piece, I would have assumed it was a stock Plarail item.

Very awesome!Smile

Here we have all of our 'Tandem' engines. All but three of them have Plarail factory made dummy engines with front hooks. The other three have custom fitted Plarail front hooks (Red Santa Fe F-Unit, the Custom 'Too Black' & the HD-3000 Hybrid)

Completed the re-uploading of all pictures in this thread from the jerks at PhotoBucket to my new, free, 3rd Party Host

That was a lot of work, hope to continue with other Threads as time permits. If you want a particular Thread to be updated to show the pictures let me know and I will move that one up the list.

This is a Re-Post from another Thread as I would like to keep all of our Customs in one place and because of bonehead decisions by PhotoBucket.

In honor of Walt Disney World's (Florida, USA) 45th Anniversary just celebrated on Oct. 1st 2016 I tried to model a Water Tower after the iconic Disney MGM Studios Earffel Tower. The real 130ft tall, faux water tower, pictured below, was erected on the lot of the originally named Disney MGM Studios Theme Park in 1989 (Now called Disney's Hollywood Studios). The tower was recently dismantled and torn down in April of this year to make room for the new Toy Story and Star Wars attractions currently under construction.

My representation is of the original tower as Disney's MGM Studios and supports a blinking red LED light at the top and between Mickeys ears to warn off those pesky Pixar Planes flying around. Of course this new custom model will adorn the new "Dreamin of Disney" layout for the Granddaughter and will be one of the features when a video is made. .

This is an AMAZING layout! It has so much tracks and the signs look beautiful!

RE: Super's Mod's, Customs & Layout - Super - 09-17-2017

I have had many inquiries as to when the next video will appear (thank you for he interest) and the news is... that filming is complete, all clips have been edited and trimmed so all that is left to do is put it all together and add some music.
