MOC: my Cafe Corner and Market Street

Post by jigsaw on Thu 25 Oct 2012, 1:09 pm

i have decided to MOC the first 2 modulars. there is no way in hell im going to pay ~$2500 for MISB versions, the cost per brick is a waste of money. So, i have decided to hit my warchest of bricks and get into making them myself. i DL'd the instructions from lego.com as PDF's.

before the obvious is stated i will tell you now what i have changed:
1. they will not be the same colours. Market St is red, and Cafe Corner will be a different colour as well. i have tweaked a little bit of each to my liking, and brick availability.

so here is Market St:
-balconies were changed to square
-red instead of blue
-no side part of the build, just the house


CC is still a work in progress. i have almost finished the ground floor, i need to do another Parts run at Toy corner soon...
- using standard blue bricks instead of the rare and pricey dark blue
- changed the roof part of the ground floor to dark bley, instead of white/light bley.
- the fan above the door is dark bley instead of white


im not going for complete colour replication. im sure they will look great still being a little different. at the moment these 2 have hammered my parts stash (but when i think about it, this is why i have the stash in the first place), i reckon i might be able to squeeze another 2 modulars out of the guts of my collection.

Jigsaw,

I've done one with a red ground floor and dark bley upper levels which turned out really well. Are you going to keep the blue for each level?

Looking good, I don't have enough parts to make any of these. I need to buy some ebay bulk lots.

not sure yet. im probably going to have to go white/dark bley or something like that. the roof will be black like the pet shop.

top floor windows are going to be yellow! but, i have a plan to incorporate more yellow into the building to settle it down a bit.

the hotel sign.... well im thinking of changing that all together as well!

btw, bought town hall today too!

I made my sign in red, with gold 1x1 rounds for the writing, it looks good.

My original attempt can be found here: MOD Cafe Corner and how it looks currently here in Naiaville - I've actually turned the top levels around as it is now waterfront and added a couple of extra awnings and surrounding decks.

Looks good jigsaw, great work.

Those top windows are very bright, I can't decide whether they work or not.
