Magical set - just 1 thing left to do, add power!
" This is a great rendition of Hogwarts Express, here is how to motorise and light it if you're interested!
I'm pleased to say it is really easy, here are the Powerfunctions parts required:
- Battery box (88000 batteries, or 8878+45517 for mains power)
- 8884 IR Receiver
- 88002 Train Motor
- 8879 Controller
- 8870 lights + 4 Pick A Brick parts as shown (optional)
- Track!
Simply remove the wheel base from the engine tender, the black plate top of it and the fireplace from the engine.
The train motor becomes the base of the tender as shown. Re-add the 4 dark grey 2x1 bricks from the tender to the base to act as supports for the rest of the tender assembly. Also add the engine and passenger car couplings to the train motor. Place your battery box in the tender and the IR Receiver in the engine cab.
For the power, connect your IR Receiver to your battery box. Your IR Receiver has 2 ports, add the train motor's plug to one and the optional lights to the other.
You're good to go! "

Terrific! Small moc needing a few extra pieces
" This is truly a terrific set, so well designed but its missing the small turrets on the main tower... I've had a look through Pick-a-Brick and with the extra pieces shown I've fixed this, enjoy! "

Excellent set but..! Pics include extra parts reqd
" This is such a truly great rendition of the X-Wing but in my opinion it has two crucial flaws, the cannons on the wings and the engines on the back are too short.
With a little look through Pick-a-Brick, with just a few additional parts (shown), you can transform the wing cannons and engines to how I've modified it!
It is a great set either way for sure, enjoy! "
