I dun kow. JK, well I'm approaching new ways of using Lego from my other project of the Twin Towers' and I've been sorta struggling so thought of this. To answer your question, references, measurements, google earth, geological maps, and knowledge I have of B&M coasters of degrees in angles etc. --- I was making a B&M invert in FVD++ for 4 months, and looked at angles and transition "accent" in the shaping of track; that helped a lot.

Looks real good, nice attention to detail in the shaping and just in general.

Like I said on Facebook, this is awesome and I'll definitely be looking into Lego Digital Designer - not least because it might help to curb my spending on actual Lego :lol:

the amount of money I'd drop on this is actually obscene
Ok but how desperate you have to be to voluntarily fly from another country to go to Thorpe?

That's pretty awesome, how tall would that be if you actually built it?

From what I've done to figure out its height, it's only a foot tall 1:135 Is its determined scale.

So thought it would be fun for a bit to make different colour combinations to see what they would appear like with the track design I made, mostly Inverts, can you guess coaster?? Add some bonus flying types in the front.

:)

Your LEGO version of Talon is looking really cool, RollerCoaster1234! Keep up the great work. LEGOs was the last thing I expected someone to be able to do a realistic coaster with, but you have proved me wrong.

Thank you, originally it would've been Batman from Over Texas but, I really found an interesting piece that I want to use which is the cylinder piece that pops out from the lower station building, then I thought of memories of Talon and how much I can make an art out of Talon than Batman.

The origins of why I started this is because I was actually doing another project --- still --- had some complications with it, was doing the Twin Towers' of The World Trade Center, thus thought an exploration of new building styles would gain more techniques of building. Am happy to consider them two my greatest and only creations: despite them in WIP.

I wish I was even half as good at NoLimits 2 as you are at LEGO Coaster replications.
