Build a Win!
, on Flickr
The wait is over, today my friend Pixel Fox and myself are very happy to share with you the building instructions of the Winchester!
I want to say a huge thanks to Sylvain from 1001 Bricks
and Marc a.k.a. Roamingstudio
for their help in making this possible.
Here are the different download links:Link 1
– PDF instructions
(3 files in a Zip archive – 1 pdf per floor – total size 16MB)
These are the step by step building instructions, similar to what LEGO produces for its official sets.Link 2
– Source Files
(LDRAW/.ldr files + LDD/.lxf file + .bsx parts inventory + .bsx Minifigures parts inventory 6 files in a Zip archive – total size 134KB)
- the .ldr
files – these are the different floors of the Winchester rebuilt in 3D with LDRAW, a freeware program which can create Lego models in 3D. (http://beta.ldraw.org/
) These are the files we have used to create the instructions.
- the .lxf
file – this is the complete Winchester rebuilt in 3D with LEGO Digital Designer (http://ldd.lego.com/
). Once you download and install the LDD software (it’s free) you will be able to visualize the Win from all possible angles and analyze its composition brick by brick.
- the .bsx
files, these are parts inventories generated with the free software “Brickstore” (http://www.brickforge.de/software/brickstore/
) You will need to install the program to view the list of bricks.
Unless of course you already own a big collection of LEGO you will most likely ask yourself where to find the bricks needed to build your own Win… do not despair as I have some good news for you, Toy Shops are not the only place where you can buy LEGO! BrickLink (http://www.bricklink.com/
) is an online commerce site that has been created to facilitate buying and selling parts, sets, and other LEGO related items among thousands of buyers and sellers. Yes, on this site you can buy any LEGO brick you want, by the unit – how cool is that?
Once you have created an account on this site you will be able to import the parts inventory files provided here above and order only the pieces you need to resellers located around the world.
Note that “Shaun” and the “Winchester gun” are not LEGO products and can only be purchased via BrickArms resellers (http://www.brickarms.com/
If you ever decide to build your own Win either based on our design or your own, please send us a picture or post it in this dedicated Flickr group
Enjoy the build!
