MOC - BOC Tradequip Store (U.K.)

Post by Lightningtiger on Wed 02 May 2012, 3:02 pm

This is my prototype for BOC which was started before I received my brief on what they wanted, but they are also interested in this one too !


More to come.....comments welcome as usual and keep on watching ! legohappy
Oh, by the way the original Aussie version of this can be found on Lego Cuusoo - BOC Gas & Gear Store (Gas Bottle Depot).....join Cuusoo and you can vote for it......you can tell Lego what to make by vote for ideas and designs on Lego Cuusoo ! legohappy

EDIT - I decided to bring up the later image showing the large gas bottles on pallets and the mig welder in the window......first impressions ! legowink

Quick Query -- what are you using for the custom stickers/labels?

(and why, and if you have tried various things any pros/cons for different things?)

Once again your creation of the BOC Tradequip Store is of the highest standard.

Doesn't surprise me that people from across the globe love your work and what is created next will be of the same quality !!!

Keep on Bricking !!!

Goodness over 700 views in only 4 days, that's more than some of my creations over the last two years ! lego8O
I guess here I can give a little teaser to at least in part what I have been asked to reproduce in Lego by BOC U.K.


Just a tease remember, I'll ask if I'm allowed to share the creation with the world or not.....since they are paying me to make it. legowink

Okay, so over a 1000 views but no comments......feels like the response to my work on Cuusoo.....a few thousand views with a handful of comments/supports ! legowink
Oh, well as a famous person once said 'That's Life' ! legolaugh

It is easy to do by leaving another comment just to show that I am still reading and watching how your progressiing every day legowink

Anyway, I am interested to know how you will come up with all the boots and shoe styles aligned on the walls of the picture ???

It looks like a fascinating challenge but somehow I know you will come up with an amazing idea as always !!!

Keep on Bricking, mate legohappy

Sadly the boots might have to be skipped, because space will be tight.
Thanks for the feedback 'Free Spirit' ! legohappy

I heard back from the U.K. tonight, they like everything so far and trust my judgement on it's overall design/look.
I'll try and keep everyone updated with my progress. legohappy

I wonder if a light-grey 1x1 round on top of the gas bottles would look a bit like a valve? legowink

Some of the smaller bottles will have the bases of those 2x1 high antenna/lever on them instead.
Thanks for the suggestion.

No real progress today, funds running very low....might have to sell some sets to keep going.
I hope to have signage printed and applied in the next two days.

The gas bottle area is also underway....well the roof section is under construction right now. I have decided to use standard Lego construction torso and torso/leg sets for the safety gear/workwear sections of the store. Any suggestions for gas hoses, welding masks, etc,. I would be grateful for them.

I still not know why this is scoring heaps of views more than any other of my creations posted on this website ?
Oh, well....the last logo for the exterior wall is nearly done colouring, tomorrow the top of the wall is finished and paving stage one begins. Of course after which stage two, etc., really begins...so keep watching !
