This model is an updated form of sets 6769 / 6762, Fort Legoredo with new parts and some modifications to the original set to make it into an Adventurers bad guy Jungle base. I have heavily modified the original Fort by adding 3 studs long Technic pins to hold the sections together, and by filling in the gaps in the wooden walls. The main gate has been severely enlarged to allow for the jungle cutter to exit the base. Also, the words "FORT OGEL" go above the main gate.
This model comes apart into four sections that are held together by Technic pins, as seen above. These four modular sections include:
-Secondary gate with train platform
-office and jail
I am including the following vehicles with the base in the LDD file:
- Jungle cutter (7626 MOD)
- diesel fuel tanker (7683 MOD)
- troop transport trucks (7622 MOD) x2
- Motorcycle with sidecar (7620 MOD)
The back of the fort features the commander's office and jail cell below. I removed the originals set's trap door and enlarged the cell.
I bought the original set 7626 (Jungle Cutter) in Summer 2008. I wanted to make it it in dark gray to match my two trucks but gave up after trying to order the parts from Lego. (I didn't know about Bricklink at that time) Well, now the shoe is on other other foot and here it is, in full grayish glory!
This model is almost a stock part of 7683. (Fight on the Flying Wing) I simply redid the rear tank to keep it from spinning.
The two trucks are made from 7622. (Race for the Stolen Treasure) Since the fabric part is so VERY expensive, I found a solution in the Eurobricks Official sets LDD topic. I took the cover from the trucks built by user ADHO15 and redid some portions to be cheaper (I.E. thinner tires) and better coordinated color-wise.
