New Lego GBC Module - Winter River

I've recently created the 4th and final module in my Minecraft theme series.  It's a tipping ramp module called "Winter River".  It uses my WM01 module as the lift mechanism, and the balls gently roll around in the river before falling out to the right.

I've always enjoyed seeing these table style modules where a large quantity of balls can roll around before exiting.  So I figured with WM01 as the conveyor this would be a great close to a series of four modules that use different lift mechanisms.

My Lego Minecraft GBC Series
  • Morgan's Mine: Tipping Ramp
  • Matt's Mine: Triple Stepper
  • Chicken Pump: Ball Pump
  • Winter River: Conveyor
The tipping ramp simply "Bolts on" to the WM01 module and is powered by the meshing of the 40T gears.  It took me a little while to get the right speed and amount of tilt correct for the table.  I used a bunch of pieces from the Minecraft Polar Igloo 21142 set for the decoration.

While this is not a complex module, I enjoy watching it operate with it's slow motion.
