Gylman's Train Car Diner
Posted 11 November 2007 - 10:16 PM
I plan to post all of the settings from the comic this week. That'll make it a lot easier to get them up on my site...
Here is Gylman's Diner:
Originally I wanted to re-build Gylman's diner form the new city ideas contest, but thought to make up my own in the end. I would've given gylman full credit, but in the end-for time and to make my own MOC-I chose not to...
And here's the "set" for the interior with Grandma Gyl:
Let me know what you guys think! Thanks *sweet*

It looks very much like a train, but it might be a wee bit small to be a diner.....Though I love the interior chairs, they look very funky!! :-$
Yeah, :-$ when I'm building them as sets for the comic, I don't get too detailed with the interior, since I know it's not possible to "film" in there anyway. If this was going in my table-town I would make it bigger and have a good interior. There are a few diners I've been to in real life that are converted train cars, they are very small, but they work for the novelty purpose.

Is it just a coincidence that Grand Theft Auto and the Greater Toronto Area use the same initials? :-p

Nice exterior, very deatiled.
I got the same feeling as Asuka and Sinner: it's very 70s styled. And it would look nice next to the Ciy Plan buildings, imo.
Thanks for sharing these creations.

The design of this train car is marvelous, I'd like to see a real lego traincar like this on the track (I don't mind 8 wide traincars at all).
Too bad there's no interior, but real filmsets don't have an interior either they? You're a true proffesional Hinckley!

It definetely has that train car feel as other's stated before me, very effective and well-designed! *y*
But overall I am very angry at you! >:-( Why did you put those trees in there, they don't make those anymore and I have none! :'-( X-D
Excellent work overall!

The only think I'd suggest is to at least give it a back wall, that way you can't see the grass through the windows. ;-)

I really can't add much here, though. The key to Hinckley's MOCing genius is things look clean and simple superficially,but then you look a bit more closely and see that things aren't as simple as you thought they were, and that little touches that seem almost accidental are a key to the success of the MOC. I don't know if this is an intentional thing you do Hinckley, or whether it's just your eye for LEGO construction.
For example here, the horizontal grooved 2x1 bricks in the bottom part of the tram car, when probably most people woudl have used long light gray bricks without giving it much thought. Or the curved downslope on the tramcar seats - realistic look, way better than the standard bench seat. Too bad LEGO does not have a curved roof slope piece that could have bee used to make the roof less angular.
I wonder whether macaroni bricks on the corners of the tram car, above and below the roof, would have been helpful.
Anyway, I'm constantly in awe of your MOCing talent. MOC on.

Great job as always Hinckley, and personally I've given serious consideration to an entire town of just half building shells, all lined up like a studio backlot. This would do nicely and just might be stolen liberally :-$ ;-)
I've also eaten in one of these places, and they really are tiny, greasy, and the food was surprisingly good.
Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!
