A selection of Miniland (1:20) scale ways to move around.
About this creation

All of the following models were built for Bright Bricks , and are part of the Bricks In Motion exhibition now showing at the Milestones Museum , Basingstoke, UK until April 26th 2015.

My contribution is a mere 20 models out of a total of 121. The dioramas and figures were made by Bright Bricks' talented team of staff builders.

We'll start with a strange looking motorsport grid...



I'm thinking the dragster's going to disappear into the lead, all the way to the first corner...



Dat dragster - many horsepowers of Top Fuel craziness. The engine's connected to the rear axle and chatters away merrily.



Studdy Stratos!



A London bus, with free advertising.



The green one's a Jeepney, as used in the Philippines. Behind it is a Dekatora - Japanese craziness of the best kind...



I'd never come across these before. They're basically 7.5 ton trucks lengthened and festooned with all manner of lights and chrome in a way that makes a Hummer limo look restrained. This one has five sets of LEDs and a battery box in the back (the trans-clear letters - it's Japanese for 'truck' - light up and there's three pairs at the front).

The model was actually started by the workshop manager Kevin Cooper but he didn't have time to finish it. Most of it up to the top of the wheels is his work.



Tequila! A special treat for Pico ...



Some boat I made, but you've already seen that.



You've already seen this too...



In a dark corner of the museum, a little bit of steam history... if you can find it!



Stephenson's Rocket brought into the light. The figures are about the right size. Ish.



Demonstrated in 1829, the first locomotive to pull a passenger train was timed at 28mph! Many people thought such heady speeds would be fatal. Pass the Veyron...



This one has more light than heat however...



Even earlier, Richard Trevithick's 'Puffing Devil', a road locomotive demonstrated in 1801. It worked well right up until it overheated and exploded. A replica exists in Cornwall, built recently by the Trevithick Society.



The big yellow thing is a Duck. A bus-type thing that crosses the Thames regularly and is based on a DKW amphibious military vehicle. With limo, which doesn't swim.

The hot rod is the work of Ralph Savelsberg



Ralph again. That's the rear end of his fire engine backing into my ambulance.



I made a modified copy of this one to present to my good friend Ash, who's a Paramedic.



This time with opening rear..



... and interior in which Miniland Ash can continue his brilliant work.



Taxi!



To Mexico, apparently...



... but go the long way round...



That classic Austin FX/4 cab in all it's blackness.



This Bug is probably my favourite of the cars I've done here.



A construction scene. Builds firmly in my comfort zone :-)



'Oooooh I don't know boss, I've never made one of those before....'

This one has five axle steering, linked stabilisers and working hook. The boom luffing, rotating and extending are done manually to make it possible to pose it. There's a ratchet to hold the extended arm in place but it isn't strictly fully functional.



Neither is this but it you can pose the tipper bed up and steer it. Based on a Scania design, I'm quite pleased with this one.





The JCB is a 4CX version, and it's fully poseable. The working functions are steering and a pair of locking stabilizers.





If you are still reading this, congratulations! You've got to the end. I salute your patience.

Om yhy god. I don't... you can't just... that's too much. Too much! I'm done. I'm walking away, I've just seen like 17 new MOC's and everything is awesome and I can't handle anymore. .... ... A few deep breathes and I'm back, and where do I even start, Nick? That Taxi-Mexi is a charming little fellow, equal parts neat paintwork and smooth bodywork. The ambulance is some top notch work, and unusual from you being all smooth as well! Nice inside bits too. The studdy Stratos is well representing of the original, I spotted it right away in the opening photo. And the Dekotora truck is insane, ostentatious, and far too loud. Which means you've aced it. And sheesh, a giant functional crane truck is now boilerplate for you! All of this is just incredible. I haven't been this gobsmacked since I saw Malte's RWB limey Porsche however many years back. Honest.

Quoting Henrik Hoexbroe Wow, thats a high volume output. How much time are we looking at here¿? (Oh, and they are all excellent too, very much in "your style".)
Thanks Henrik. The smaller cars take about 6 to 8 hours; crane and bus more like 25. Altogether quite a lot :-)

Well those Japanese guys have some interesting ideas about trucks, I must say. Too much good stuff here to even fully wrap my mind around. BTW, does your paramedic friend Ash have one regular hand and one that's a chainsaw? Say, that would be a good one to build...Ash's car thingie from Army of Darkness. You know, in your free time! Great stuff, as always.

A wonderful collection of vehicles. I have Stephenson's Rocket as main favorite. It is really lovely with the rounded shapes of the wheels, boiler and water tank. But all your models are eye candy, each deserving their own post.

Wow that's awesome! I love all of them with the Beetle and the Stratos being my favourites! I can't remember having seen a better Bettle in this scale. And there is also YAC (yet another crane), and it's beautiful and (as always) extremely packed with functions. Great job, Nick! :-))

Oh WOW! This is amazing, you really are the best at vehicles, but the three things that really got me excited were the Stratos, the Beetle (really top work! The shaping is excellent), and, strangely enough, the Duck. I rode in one on my trip to London, I can't say it was the most thrilling experience, but the vehicle itself is whacky! And the rest, well, perfect as always!

Igh..a...e...plugh...giraffeteapot....I'm lost for words. These are all so amazing! The Dragster is just incredible. I love the Stratos, and I can feel the pain of any difficulties in building the thing. The Bus, the Dekatora, the Jeepney and the Duck are all very very good. The Ambulance is one of the most anti-Nick/ smoothest and best ambulances I've seen. Lovely rail way vehicles, and taxis - dat Beetle tho. I'm going to have to start charging you for me to view your stuff - you keep blowing my socks off, and a man can only have so many socks. =P

Goodness! I thought that I'd been busy making 21 LDD rovers for Febrovery! This is a amazing body of work. I like the Lancia and the tuk-tuk in terms of fun. The ambulance and the "Rocket" in terms of accuracy (nice to see those 1970s figures too). When my Mum and Dad watch "The Antiques Roadshow" they always discuss what they'd give house-room to. I think that in this case it would have to be the collection of construction models. I love that, although they've been built for display and look good, they're also packed with playable functions. Great work and thanks for sharing with us scruffy peasants that don't live in and can't travel to, the south of England. (Yes, Verbier is just a slum darling...)
