New custom LEGO Covered Hopper MOCs hit the rails

I love it when things go according to plan, even when there isn't so much of a plan as a nostalgia-painted ethereal idea bolstered by some random Google Images action.  This older-style, externally braced design isn't intended to replicate any one specific real-life hopper.  Rather, it takes inspiration from as many of them as needed to extract something semi-believable out of the very limiting proportions (and color selection) of LEGO parts I had on hand.

I was able to make two of these before running out of 1x2 mod plates.  I wouldn't mind having another couple of 'em eventually.  For now, though, I'll be turning my attention to something different.

  1. This is awesome and almost exactly what I need for my grain train.
    Any chance of some basic instructions?
