Epic job!

At first I thought that the red doors was a little too bold, and mabe a bit off, but then I saw the photos of the real thing! Extremely well done.

I especially like the small french flags and the round windows on the roof.

Question: How did you do the parking-areas; with cut baseplates and stickers¿?

That dome roof on the main entrance is just :thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: !

The facade details are spectacular too! and to see the whole thing in minifig scale is AMAZING!!

That's a truly great train station - well done on building something so big and realistic. It looks just like the real thing! I'm always amazed by people who dare to take on such huge projects. My favourite part is the dome - it does look like it's just a little bit tall compared to the real station, but curvature is something that's not easy to achieve with Lego. All in all a fabulous model!

I saw this on Brickshelf as a WIP, and already thought it was great....

But it's even better then great, it is awesome and inspiring! :thumbup:

My favourite detail has to be the little round windows in the roof of the small buildings.

I know it is hard to photograph these large models, but would it be possible to get some better, sharp images?

These pictures really don't do your model justice IMHO.

Very nice indeed! Great job, that's a lot of work!

The colour scheme, the details, the sheer size... Probably one of the best Lego Train stations I've seen!

This station is absolutely beautiful and would have to rank as one of the best stations ever built, I am particularly impressed with how you have maintained a high level of detail in such a large model.

This is stunningly beautiful. I love all the nice little details you put in this big build.

Also the multi-SNOT walls to create the dark tan framing is absolutely beautiful.

Kind regards,

Teddy
