MOC - New Mannum Hotel

Post by Lightningtiger on Sat 09 Oct 2010, 2:24 am

G'day everyone, another MOC has been started on the spare of the moment, it's W-I-P and it's going to be a big one too !
On stripping some older sets at home, the Creator Family House I thought would once MOD'ed would fit in my town.
But then the light bulb above my head flashed on.......a 1930's Australian hotel....South Australian that should be (NO VB guy's ).....at least two storey with a front bar on the ground floor and accomadation up stairs.
Anyway......

So you can see there is much more to do outside and in of course, a bar with beer taps, maybe some outdoor sitting with a drunk falling to sleep on them.
I will say now NO to poker machines.....but PubTAB maybe !
Comments and other suggestions welcome......so keep on.....you know the rest !

I like your bar step!
beer taps are great, needs drip tray if you swap those jumpers for a 2x2 plate and whack a grill infont of the taps....... maybe?

roof definately needs something, maybe to avoid adding another couple of rows you could raise the side one brick and whack red plate on top of the exiating tiles just to close it up a bit.... just a thought.

love the plumbing looks great!
will there be a stair case ? or is it a classic LEGO style magic second story

love the little details, TV, spirits, and that amber light shade is spot on, reminds me of many a country pub.
Well done!
