This is the alternate framed version of official set 75955 Hogwarts Express. No extra bricks is needed!
The idea of my LEGO Frame project comes from the situation that displaying an official set at home needs too much space. When a new set comes, the old set has to go. However, instead of putting the old set back to its box, would it be a good idea to reduce it into a photo frame and hang it on the wall? Displaying a photo frame needs minimal space and one can also keep it free from dust!
Keeping the train at its original scale is not a easy task. Bricks have been shuffled a lot in order to get the parts of right size. But the downside is that the lowest platform and middle train compartment do not have enough height and look a bit congested. It is also pity that only half the parts of the original set have been used leading to many surplus.
This framed MOC fit perfectly in a IKEA Ribba Photo Frame 23×23 cm. The backdrop is just a piece of paper. I pick a blue sky and mountains and you can have your choice. There are totally 103 steps. Please see some sample in photo session. (Tips: Please visit a nearby IKEA shop for availablity of the frame before purchasing this building instrucions.)
I hope you would enjoy this Hogwarts Express in the Frame!
