Small Collections Yield Amazing Results

TTCE Donnerbüchse Inspired CoachI just returned last night from BrickFair 2009 in the Washington, D.C. area (more on that once I sort through my photos), so I'm doing a bit of catching up.  I spotted this one last evening.

Eurobricks user wtorbeyns presents this great little passenger car, showing that you don't need a huge collection of parts to build a great MOC.  The use of grill bricks for texture, SNOT techniques for the windows, and the parts usage on the end platforms are all wonderful.  His idea of using a rubber band to keep the two sets of wheels aligned is also nice, and something that I could see being used on a small 4-wheeled caboose to eliminate the friction problem that the 10014 had.  All in all, this is a very nice first time build.
