Coffee Tin Tunnels

Post by legodac on Sat 11 Feb 2012, 6:15 pm

I'm moving eh, seems I've found a real home, time to start sharing...

My train set is my pride and joy, and it's all about Lego.
I have spent many hours building this diorama of Lego. So please, enjoy the pictures.



The idea came one day, to build a train set throughout my home....


I needed to find a way, I found my 8 inch hole saw and began


The construction wasn't easy, I had to deal with my wife, oldndusty, to promise she would love it in the end.


The holes were drilled with an 8 inch hole saw through the walls


After the dust settled I cut open a large coffee tin and spray painted it black, then set inside the tunnel.


The pics and the words can not do justice, so I'll leave you with these

Cool! It would be neat to see a video of the train going on it.

Woah! That's awesome! It must have taken a lot of time to do. Keep up the good work, and a video would be cool.

That's just the bricks that surround the tunnel itself, to give it structure, tell me, have you ever seen the great Lego train robbery?
