  1. When did Seagrave introduce the Capitol chassis? Never heard of it before but now I'm seeing departments all over ordering them.

      It looks cool and its probably quite function...Maybe they think it will be a Capitol investment?

  2. The LFC has too many counties and groups, change my mind

  3. The BVFD rebuild is still underway... stay tuned!

  4. Pretty bummed right now

  5. Did the IALFF shut down? Website doesn't work. As a member, a  heads up would have been nice.

      Nope, there's been some technical issues between Google and Weebly.

      Found the site... and I'm not on the members list anymore. Interesting... 

  6. I really think it's time to purge this site. The number of accounts that haven't been on in years is unbelievable. 

  7. Welp, one of my BL packages seems to have disappeared. Greaaat

      That really sucks and I hope that It's still on it's way to you. Maybe something to do with the weather? USPS cancelled service for a couple days due to weather.

      I have no idea, the tracking hasn't been updated since Jan 23rd 

  8. Turning into a skeleton waiting for my BL parts

  9. Engine 6 is on order!

  10. 2nd side department is underway

  11. LDD is officially the most aggravating program in the history of computers. What I thought was a solid design ended up not being correct upon building due to a visual glitch in LDD.

  12. When you find pics of a really good design you had and try to replicate it but somehow it isn't working out

  13. The stories... calls I've never been on give me chills.

  14. Starting a side department today

  15. College: putting people broke for a piece of paper since ever 

     

    (I'm not in college atm but you don't have to be to get it)

  16. NEED HELP: Attempting to do a ladder rack. Have the rack complete, but can't figure out a way to get a recessed light in behind it. Will send pictures to anyone interested in lending a hand.

      It's a top-mount. All my engines have full-height compartments on each side.

      This is where I'm at right now

      My thought is this, you could A) move the bent part forward 1 stud, and mirror the same one you did on the otherside, or a flat 1x1 transparent "light" brick placed directly on the rig itself..

  17. Making a bunch of LDD rigs just because... although they won't serve Brick Village I might order some because I like the looks of 'em so much

  18. *builds with Lego for entire life* LDD: yeah so we decided to change how Lego works without telling anyone, good luck

  19. Anyone remember a guy on YouTube that owned a Dept. called North Gelong/Geelong? (can't remember how many E's). He deleted his channel and I haven't seen him post anywhere since. Anyone know if he's posting anywhere? 

  20. Will be starting a side department. Don't have a name but it's going to be a rural department covering a fairly large area. 

  21. When you find out LDD has a screenshot feature 

  22. I know it was a VERY long time ago, but what ultimately led to MedLink's downfall? They ended right around when I started building

      Long story short: Kiddie with a craving for power over a Lego oriented group.

      Slightly longer version: James K. went out of state for a summer internship, left MedLink in the capable hands of the other mods and admins.
      Enter Keller Brown, he got into an argument with the other mods, then decided he should be the one and only boss of MedLink did a hostile takeover, and shut the other mods out of the group.
      MedLink collapsed, many builders were pissed off as they were ordering parts for rigs (and yellow bricks were more expensive back then) to join MedLink.

      So Dakota got to Keller, and EBAN got control over MedLink, threw Keller in the deepest dungeon he could find, MedLink was returned to James when he got back, and it took a few years, but James reactivated MedLink, and still is active today, safe to say, James doesn't allow anyone to join anymore.

      ...That's quite a story 

  23. My thoughts on an Engine to Ladder ratio: 

    4 to 1 for the first 3 aerials, then 2 to 1 for every aerial thereafter.

  24. Stud.io 2 decided it doesn't understand how Lego works

  25. Rescue Co. 3 has been permanently taken out of service. All MVAs and other rescue assignments will be handled by the engines, which are all rescue engines except Engine 3.
