Youtube: Railway accessories: switch point sets and railroad tracks by BlueBrixx

Youtube: Railway accessories: switch point sets and railroad tracks by BlueBrixx

Published on 21.05.2019

Locomotives and railcars are great, but the central ingredient of a track system are of course the tracks themselves. You can never have enough of tracks and switches to construct versatile railway lines with countless options for the trains. Having nothing but a small track circle becomes boring relatively quickly, more accessories are needed.

Today Marco is building such a track system in the Brick Studio. For this he uses our new accessory sets: We now offer switch tracks, flexible tracks and sets with 2 buffer stops!

Marco takes a look at the new sets and installs them right on the studio table. Everything fits, now the new passenger cars can come!

Today it gets romantic in our Brick Studio! Michael takes Klaus to his newly built house with whirlpool, piano, cosy furnishings and a small garden full of plants. With large windows, bright colours and many details, this set by Xingbao offers a lot of building fun in 1,500 parts.

Michael shows the actual high "light" of the house in dim light: A total of 33 small LEDs bathe the garden and the floors of the house in romantic light. An extraordinary bonus, which we'd like to see in more brick sets!

From 20:12 Klaus shows two sets of 4 buildings each in micro-scale, with which one can build small streets. We'll take a closer look at these sets in a later video!

The US tank destroyer GMC M36 Jackson was used in the final phase of the 2nd World War. Better armed and better armoured, it was a radical upgrade of the M10 Wolverine.

In this video Marco introduces the BlueBrixx model of this tank. As always, he has some information on the historical model prepared and goes into details of the model's implementation with bricks. The video builds on the information about the M10 Wolverine, which is presented in this video.

What is dark green and unique? Our military models of the US Army! Only we produce some of their parts in dark green. In general, you can download our building instructions for free and build the sets with your own bricks - but with our US tanks you may have to change the color. Today Marco presents one of these models in the Brick Studio:

Tank destroyers - lightly armored and heavily armed - were an important part of the US Army in the 2nd World War. While battle tanks mainly supported infantry, tank destroyers specifically fought enemy tanks.

In this video Marco illuminates this type of vehicle and introduces the GMC M10 Wolverine. Almost 5,000 units of this US tank destroyer were built before new tank models of the German Wehrmacht made stronger tank destroyers necessary.

You can build anything out of bricks, but usually the models are rather compact and stand on large plates or many wheels. Sometimes, however, true master builders show that you can also build completely different things out of bricks:

Today Klaus and Michael have company in the Brick Studio: Between them lurks a dangerous monster from the depths of space!

Klaus can hardly get enough of this detailed model that Michael brought with him. Together they talk about building techniques, articulation possibilities and the saliva flow of the big Xingbao set. 2,020 parts and over 50 cm high, a model not from this world!

Have you seen our big preview special on Youtube? Klaus and Marco talk about a lot of sets that will be released in 2019 and 2020. Some sets have already been produced and are on their way to Germany, others only exist as prototypes or digital designs.

The last category includes 15 models of well-known German fire-fighting vehicles. From the crew van to the powerful airport fire brigade, the models show the broad spectrum of vehicles waiting to be deployed in German fire stations.

Since our Youtube channel started at the end of June 2018 with some short product clips, a lot has happened: Since the beginning of November we have been broadcasting from the Noppenstein Studio, with this video already for the 40th time. 5,000 subscribers and many more AFOBs (adult fans of bricks) are following our videos, commenting on them and giving us valuable feedback.

Today is the time to thank you and celebrate together with our viewers! That's why today the table is overflowing with prototypes, many of which have never been seen before. A big SPOILER ALERT is appropriate! Marco and Klaus talk about new product lines, hold small and huge models in the camera and even reveal a lot that only exists digitally so far.

Almost everything...

Published on 03.05.2019

The Polish brick producer Cobi is known for its detailed sets with many special parts. Cobi holds licenses for brands such as Maserati, Boeing, Trabant or the Smithsonian Institution. Today we take a closer look at two sets from such license themes.

This time Klaus sits alone in our Brick Studio and presents two sets that Cobi released in 2019 on the occasion of important anniversaries: a Trabant 601 "30 Years of the Fall of the Wall" with a watchtower, a tollgate and a piece of the Berlin Wall and the Apollo lunar module. Exactly 50 years ago the first humans landed on the earth's satellite!

Klaus then builds the Apollo module in a new speedbuild. He shows special parts and comments on interesting construction steps. Doing all that, will he always pay attention to the building instructions?
