    An intro to Ed

    Hello everyone! My name is Ed O. I'm from New York, and have been building fire trucks since 2011 or 2012, but I didn't start posting it anywhere until 2014. Currently I have 4 departments. Three are in the planning stage and my main department is in the rebuild phase. I was an explorer for nearly 4 years, but am currently working on leaving the Explorer program and applying to the Department itself to become a firefighter. I've had my fair share of issues within the LFC. When I first started joining groups and sites in the LFC, I was eager to prove myself (something even I knew back then you can't do in real life because you'd get your *** kicked) and often started various arguments about a myriad of topics. So yeah, I was a bit of a keyboard warrior. However, I've matured a bit. I pride myself on building the most accurate and sturdiest rigs I possibly can. If something doesn't look like it should, or if I feel a rig is too flimsy, I will halt production to find out how to improve the design. I may miss a few things here and there when designing on LDD, but it's kind of odd - it's almost like a truck is exponentially more visible in real life and mistakes are much easier to see. I can't quite explain it. Through this blog, I hope to pass on knowledge, building techniques, and all sorts of things along to newer members. See you in the first blog?
  2. When Stud.io 2.0 decides to accept your BL password but the BL site says it's the wrong password

      And then BL decides not to accept your wanted list over an unrecognized part that you're 99.9% sure you didn't use in your build

      It's Stud.io 2.0 BETA, it's still in a experimental/design phase, so there are still bugs that have to be dealt with.
      Maybe it would be more helpfull to report this to the Stud.io design team then venting it on here.

      I already did report it. 

  3. Absolutely terrible news out of NYC - both a detective and Deputy Chief of the NYPD committed suicide this week

      That's horrible.

  4. Finally have a tiller design that I'm happy with. Can't wait to show it.

  5. Why is MOCPages broken every 2.5 seconds

  6. Thinking about using the "Clubs" feature to make a club/group as a pilot run since none have been started yet. Anyone want to join?

  7. Am I the only person that thinks the "roof" windows on the Quantum look stupid?

      They kind of are, they don’t really improve visibility since the glass is like looking through choppy water. Not sure if they improved them but the ones I’ve seen are pointless.

  8. Having one of those days... can't get the design to cooperate and I think it's giving me a migraine 

  9. Am I the only person that thinks hitting the arrows/arrow keys while looking at the pics in the "New Creations!" slideshow it show go to the next creation and not photos in the same album as the one you're viewing 

  10. Seeing lots of people join, but the only newer person that posts anything is Dennis. Wonder why.

  11. Check out the new BVFD station assignments/organization in the "Departments & Organizations" thread

  12. Lego needs to make parts with different colors at different 'heights'... for example a headlight brick that is 2 plates tall one color and then the top plate is a different color

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

    1. Josh

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

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

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

  16. Pretty bummed right now

  17. 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... 

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

  19. 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 

  20. Turning into a skeleton waiting for my BL parts

  21. Engine 6 is on order!

  22. 2nd side department is underway

  23. 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.

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

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