Hi Everyone!
I am Nimród, a Hungarian boy, who loves designing models with LEGO.
 
My newest project takes you to a trip to a small country in Europe. I built one of the most iconic locomotives of Hungary, the M62.
 
About the real Locomotive:
My model is a realistic replica of the famous diesel-electric locomotive, the M62 in the colours of MÁV, the Hungarian State Railways. The locomotive’s nickname in Hungary is from a popular Russian name “Szergej”. It was produced by Luhansk Locomotive Works (earlier Voroshilovgrad Locomotive works) between 1965 and 1990.

About my model:
I built the set and rendered the images with Stud.io. My locomotive – otherwise the City train sets – has an 8-studs wide body. (With the rear-view mirrors it’s a little bit more.) I tried to represent the original locomotive as close to reality as possible. I used self-printed numbers, 4 of the old window pieces, and special building techniques to recreate the locomotive.
I built the model rather for displaying than playing and I made a displaying stand for it. I also created an information plate with a pale technical drawing in the background and I added a train driver / maintenance minifigure to the set as well.
I think it would be a great addition to the Crocodile Locomotive set, and everyone, who loves LEGO train models, would love it.
 
Technical information:
Locomotive:
-       Width: 9.6 studs / 7.6 cm / 3.0 in
-       Length: 37.0 studs / 29.6 cm / 11.7 in
-       Height: 13.5 studs / 10.8 cm / 4.2 in
-       Weight: 621.3 grams / 21.917 ounces
-       It contains 685 parts in total
 
The displaying stand is 50x17 studs, the information plate is a 6x12 modified tile.
