Courthouse

Hi all,

Here is a courthouse I have made for my minifigs. I have decided to give criminalfigs fair trials before sentencing to improve the image of my town.

I love the use of fences for windows here Calvin, really imaginative thinking there!

I also like the gargoyles and the court room , if a little small at that ;-)

However wouldnt the town folk get a little confused with all of this whiteness? X-D

Small? We don't have many criminalfigs :P

You're right, that's true. Here is a pic of town at present. I will probably move the courthouse and put in a yellow office block to spread the white buildings around!

Nice courthouse. I like the way you used your white brick. The fences are used in an unique way too. I like it. But how come a courthouse will have a holding area or jail in it? I thought it should be separate building. :look: It seemed like a holding area for criminals to get detain.

Very nice.

It has a real no nonsense institutional feel to a lot of it as a courthouse should. But with the awesome gargoyles just enough differentiation not to be boring. I like it a lot.

I might have the gargoyles sit on non-white pieces to really make them 'pop' and break up the all whiteness a little bit without sacrificing the overall effect.

As usual Calvin, this is excellent. I love the use of the white fences and the chains - it makes the building quite imposing. The gargoyle is also a nice touch!

A clear and stringent design with a cool gargoyle, a good use of these fence pieces and a well fitting interior. :thumbup:

Thanks for all the comments and questions guys :)

very nice moc, butt why is harry potter the judge?????

Judges here wear silly cloaks so thats why. "Potter" has had to change his name to Mr Justice Dessertus.

Nice! Why is the guy with the italian looking face always the bad guy?

Because Italians are always bad? J/k ;)

Its not supposed to be a holding area but an office for lawyers and their clients. Criminals or suspects are usually escorted though.

The gargoyles are kinda gargoyles - supposed to be the eagle crest/insignia of the State Justice.

There is room for improvement of course. The thing I like least about it is that it is not very wide and so the court room's a bit narrow. However I have no more space to fit it into my town so it will have to do!
