The Star Ferry and Tsim Sha TsuiFerry Pier

The Star Ferry's ferry crossings at Victoria Harbour are acclaimed as an importantpart of the commuter system between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, and essentialjourneys for visitors. The National Geographic Traveler named the ferrycrossing as one of 50 places of a lifetime. The ferry ride is alsowell known as one of the world’s best value-for-money sightseeingtrips.

In Hong Kong, Legend Bricks, The Pennisula Hong Kong, and the Hong Kong Heritage Project organize an exhibition named, Our Tsim Sha Tsui – Past, PresntAnd Future, showing the historical photos, products, history of the area TsimSha Tsui

And our group, Legend Bricks was honoured and invited to contribute in building 2 parts of Tsim Sha Tsui using Lego bricks, the 1970’s and the Present.

As Tsim Sha Tsui pier is one of the main building in Tsim Sha Tsui area in 1970s,I am very pleasure in building the Ferry and the Pier! This is the first time I build a ship, in a minifigs scale. It’s very different from making trains atall!

Let me show you some of the photos of the ferry and pier first.

that Star Ferry you have made is really nice! The Clock Tower is also well-made (from the small corner photo I can see). :thumbup:

Both the ferry and terminal have a great shape. I'd like to see some interior photos of the parking garage area as well.

That's really nice. Instantly recognisable to anyone that's been there. That said it's cool to get some background information and reference pics as well.

One of you images (Ferry6.jpg) was way over the allowable limit of 800x600.

I've changed this posted image to a link.

Feel free to re-post the image once you've down-sized it.

You have been warned in the past, but I'll assume this was an accident because all the other images we correctly sized.

Wow, this is really a great creation, both the harbour and the ferry.

You should try to get some more photos using a smaller aperture to get the whole ferry in focus.

As someone who was in Hong Kong in 2002 and rode on this very ferry, I must congratulate you on your spot-on accuracy! The day I rode it to Kowloon was a blast, and I still have several of the things I bought in Kowloon (a couple Mandarin-style shirts and a Mahjong set).

Thanks for bringing some pleasant memories to mind with this MOC.

Oh wow! You have really captured it there. I love it. And the subject is everyday and yet so spectacular. Well done!

Wow I totally love this MOC! I used to visit my grandparents in HK back in the late 90s and I would take the ferry across to Kowloon to get to Ocean Park Mall. But now I just take the MTR to Mong Kok.
