Welcome to 1/198th Mining "LLC" where the LLC actually stands for "Little LEGO Creations". I specialize in building large surface mining equipment like DRAGLINES and GIANT STRIPPING SHOVELS. So far, I have built NINETEEN large mining MOCS, but have only had time to upload ten of them. Most of these are glorified "paper weights" i.e. they don't do much, but starting in the winter of 2010, I began learning how to motorize things with Power Functions. Most of the real machines I build are either sitting idle waiting for new work, or have sadly already been cut up for scrap. I focus on mining machines in the midwestern U.S., but soon hope to branch out and include machines as far away as Germany. Please enjoy the photos, ask questions, and feel free to leave suggestions.
