MOC/WIP: My Modular Town

84 posts in this topic

Welcome to the town of Stoneford!

5854947647_02b241cbe8_z.jpg

So instead of creating Topic after Topic about each of the buildings I make, I am going to start a running thread with my town adding buildings as I go.

I got really interested in this style of building after building my Grand Emporium. So today I will start with my newest building and later add in some of my other buildings that I've done since then.

Welcome to Lightning Hardware Store in town of Stoneford. The hardware store named in Honor of LightningTiger who gave me a few ideas for the interior.

The front of the store

The Rear of the store.

Now who is a bright spark ? :grin:

I have never have anything named after me.....being called a few things in my time though ! :iamded_lol:

The tool rack - very nice :excited:, the cabinets below the saws - very nice :excited: and the digging tools rack - gee, I've seen that before :iamded_lol: !

The lightning bolt on the roof takes the cake - your finest work yet 'LCM' and I give the LT paw-print of approval ! :moar:

Brick On 'LCM' ! :wink:

Hello!

What I like most here is the nice effect of inverted arch over the window next to a conventional arch over the door. :classic: I think that it would even look better if you did not fill up the arch over the door with plates but instead left it empty. :classic:

Cheers,

~ Christopher

The Cappuccino/Espresso Maker, Cup rack, a dish washer, and coffee pot.

The counter where people can come in and get a cup if they've walked or biked up.

Looks nice 'LCM', but the counter looks a little boring, though your coffee machines are pretty good.....I like the coffee brewer on the far right. :thumbup:

Keep going and Brick On 'LCM' ! :classic:

This MOC is actually a MOD of the City Bank.

5853230249_fe5812289e_z.jpg

Although moved we still have the Skylight feature and the burglar breaking in.

5853782908_3dac5d3ee0_z.jpg

Complete with an enlarged bank teller counter.

5853782592_7faa211bdf_z.jpg

and customer area. This will soon be getting a loan officers desk cubical in this area as well.

5853230587_0b0d0294c8_z.jpg

A security elevator to the second floor where the money is stored (Not functional)

5853783006_68407a2ef1_z.jpg

The elevator let's off at the second floor

Right next to the Branch Manager's desk.

Right down the hallway from the reinforced vault

Not bad MOD's 'LCM', still a little bare though, but the safe is excellent ! :thumbup:

Keep going 'LCM', every thing you create or change you learn new ways of improving your previous work.

Brick On ! :grin:

Thanks LT< I am learning that. I have a few things I want to add to the bank. Need a few more computer screens, Going to have to buy some "Traveler" kits at TRU but moneys tight right now. Got laid off on Friday.

You will also be happy to know that my little town now has a name.

icy brick,

Feel free to use/copy whatever you like. I will try and get a picture of the whole layout later tonight.

So I've made a few improvements to the coffee shop and bank.

To the Coffee Shop we've added some color to the top of the building, also a patio table with umbrella where one of our friendly bike cops have stopped for a cup.

5858821474_70c5863004_z.jpg

The City Bank

Most banks here in the US have an architectural feature that is used in their feature feel. I've Purple Half Arch above the bank sign giving it a "wave feel" with the white "foam" underneath.

5858824684_6a44c2e641_z.jpg

We've repeated this in the teller windows, (which I've added another).

5858824604_7b883c9cca_z.jpg

Here I've added a small desk for people to ready their deposits or write their checks so they can be ready when they go to the teller. There is also a small movable railing to keep customers out of the banks "business" area.

5858824784_5bf7b39612_z.jpg

Upstairs we've added a swivel chair for the security desk (Still need some more monitors) and a few other chairs in the hallway. Must be a delivery day.

5858824658_922cee4e30_z.jpg

Armed Stoneford Police watch over the delivery truck while the driver is making his delivery.

Enjoy

Interesting 'LCM', might be a church of some sort judging by the steps at the front and that middle built-up section. :wink:

Well, only you know what it is ! :grin:

Brick On ! :grin:

The Front

From Above

From the back (It's still a WIP but I ran out of bricks. I used a bit of SNOT here.

Alas, Poor Yourik, I knew him well.

Sorry peole, i am new here,what means WIP and MOD???

MOD is usually used to describe a Modification to an official set, Like my city Bank

WIP is Work in Progress, Something that is not yet completed.

MOC is My Own Creation.

There's a thread somewhere that lists commonly used Acronyms on the forums if you search a bit for it.

{EDIT} Here's a Link: Eurobricks Acronym Dictionary

Brick On!
