That's absolutely fantastic, Teddy. Very detailed inside and out! I love the alternating square and round plates for the columns, that's a great technique i've never seen before.
you're too kind.
Very nice, indeed. Has some very nice architectural touches, and I really like the lights on the street-side of the station. The interior could have needed an office-balcony or two, just to fill it up a little, but the way you've used the floor is exemplary.
May I suggest that you off-set the teeth-plates seen in fifth and sixth pictures with a half-a-stud to either side. That way you'll avoid the thick centrepiece you have now, which IMHO ruins the looks a little.
But very, very nice work you've done there.
An office balcony... Have to think about it.
The centerpiece, I guess is a matter of taste. I like it as it is, I actually did it on purpose, but I can imagine you differ a bit.
Great work! (I wish I could build like that. ) You include so many interesting techniques.
Its a matter of stacking bricks and keep redoing everything untill you are satisfied with a part.
This train station is awesome looking, with that majestic tan facade. I am not sure if we are able to find a suitable spot inside Thrash's map as the curret numbers have not been determined by the building type, but I am very sure we are able to find a suitable spot for it.
I got a spot on the map.
Wow Teddy, That is one fantastic MOC!
I like all the little shops and kiosk's that you included, and I do hope that this gets included in the Community build!
I hope that this can still find it's way into the map, despite it might not being able to fit.
Thanks for the compliment Bob the Construction Man,
yeah the map now needs some space for the rail track as well. Maybe it can run along the edge of the map.
But i dont want to go to the 9V, 12V, battery, metal/ plastic / middle-power rail discussion in regards to the map.
This is the most realistic train station I've ever seen
I like the 1x1 round plates near the roof it would look better if it were deeper but thats minor, so overall a pretty much flawless MOC!
Thanks for the compliment prateek.
Wow. This is so well done, perfectly capturing the feel of just such a train station. Think how great the Emerald Night would look rolling up behind this station. Simply awesome.
Can't wait for that set to hit the shelfs.
Great trainstation. Al those details .
Thanks for the compliment Panda9001100.
Teddy, your 'MOC Expert' special tag is somewhat an understatment. I think perhaps 'MOC Genius' would be more appropriate. This station is almost perfect in my eyes, only things I can recommend are:
The white line at the side of the platform, see if you can't replace it with 1x'?' yellow tiles.
The red doors on the track side of the building look a little out of place. Would white look any better?
Other than that Teddy, I think this is a great MOC, and I think your efforts could be well spent on some more train MOCs in the future. (When you complete the Victory though.)
Thanks Captain Zuloo,
MOC genius.. you're too kind. Although, to be honoust I feel there are better skilled MOCcers on the forum.
The white line... Hmm, thanks for the tip!
I'm contemplating replacing them with tiles.
Here in the Netherlands the edge of the platform is often marked by a lighter/white line or an alternating white line slightly away form the edge, or both.
The red doors... I have a large stack of them in red, brown, rown, white and some other color, but they are hidden somewhere in a large pile.
I chose red, because it made for an interesting color variation. Have to think about the other colors though.
