ok here is my entry:

Posted Image

my classic italian restaurant! let me show you around:

first of all as you walk on to the green white and red carpet, you will be welcomed by mario who will give you menus and walk you to your seats:

Posted Image

once seated either upstairs or down, depending on how many are in your group, you will be able to listen to the great singer we have here madam loudvoice and her pianist, gregor, while making your decision on what you should eat:

Posted Image

once you have decided what to eat the waiter will quickly run to the chef to place your order, our chef is the fastest in the city so it will be no time until you get your food!:

Posted Image

when your food has arrived you can chow down!

once finished there is still lots to do. You can carry on listening to madam Loudvoice or visit the bar for more drink, the kids can play checkers on the tables we have here or you could climb to the top of the restaurant and look at lego city all lit up!

Posted Image

Posted Image

once ready to leave you pay the very reasonable bill and then our valet kid will get your car:

After this happened...

Posted Image
... it was clear that Sinnerton needed a tugboat...

Posted Image
...and here it is! This is the Arctic W, an ocean going tug...

Posted Image
...capable of over 25kts in the roughest sea states.

Posted Image
Two powerful independent winches are fitted...

Posted Image
...and satcom and high powered radios are standard issue.

Posted Image
The engine is highly reliable and easy to maintain.

Posted Image
It has a roomy pilot house...

Posted Image
...and easy access to below decks.

Posted Image
Luxury accommodation is also standard...

Posted Image
...with the bed being usable also as a two person couch...

Posted Image

...or any other suitible activity.

Posted Image

Enjoy!  :-P

So, finally, I've finished my latest city moc until the end of the contest: a lighthouse
Posted Image

Some months ago, I bought the latest ResQ set with the base, with the idea of making on it a lighthouse. And now that I leave with my bricks and I'm rebuilding all my city, I have made it.
And because I don't have curves pieces and the fact that you cannot put windows in them, and I don't want to spend all my bricks in a technical technic to have those curves, I decided to make it right, with an open back for playability and toshow the inside.

So I made a simple structure. I just add some details in the "toplight"
Posted Image

The interior has some sealife accessories in the case of... a table with a chair and a lamp for the gardian to live, and the ladder to go on top of the tower...
Posted Image

On the base, I put a pontoon for boats, just few things not to make it too much.
Posted Image

And some grass here and here. But there is a place where it grow up better... There is a legend on it, with a  *skull* story...
If you want to learn more about it, clic here, you will find a part of this legend...

So here it is. My entry for the City Contest:

The Flower Shop

Posted Image

I don�t know if it is Classic Town or whatever. I only now, that it is my first try for a City Moc and i hope that some of you like it.
The Idea with the wooden top floor came from my last visit in Austria. I�ve seen such a lot of beautiful houses on my way so i decided to try something like that. I know that the roof is a little to high, i was thinking about it a long time and decided to make it on this way. A friend of mine lives in a flat with a roof like that, so i think okay.. it�s real.

Posted Image

There�s a little office at that floor, the clerk is making the book keeping.

Posted Image

Now something about the ground floor. First insight the shop: You can buy some potted plants, cut flowers and vases.

Posted Image

My favourite is the garden, where you can also choose some plants. Some of you may wonder about the boat at the garden. I thought a normal table with plants on it will be too boring. So i decided to take a little boat.

Posted Image

One last pic from the back of the house:

Since Mr Hinckley is so kind *sweet*  to invite me to his city contest I have decided to enter my pizza place. I don't believe it would stand a chance against his lovely brewery or some of those other lovely entries but we have to give it a chance.  :-)  Unfortunately I don't have time to MOC another building before the deadline so we have to go with the Luigis. *wacko*

You have all seen it before but here are the pictures once again.

OK guys after a lot of destroying/rebuildin/ordering (and what have you  :-P ) may I present you my first city MOC building (and definitly NOT the last, I really developped a taste for it  :-D ):

Bar "Le  *yoda*"

Here are general pics of the baby before I explain that project  ;-)

Posted Image

Posted Image

I wanted a SW feel to a classic American small town bar (I started with pics of Moe's Tavern  ;-) ): thus a squarish building with billboard and black roof. The Moe's Tavern feel can be found with the use of those reddish brown tiles. I also wanted an outdoor area for patrons !!
Since the ba is called "Le Yoda" it had to bee sand green hehe and I love the combination sand green/reddish brown.

Now I'll show you some details !! Lets start with the roof with that hilarious billboard name and chimney/air extraction:

Posted Image

Posted Image

Posted Image

To continue on Moe's Tavern idea, I wanted to add a red/green glass areas (like regular Irish pubs mind you  ;-) ) so here is a pic of that from the interior:

Posted Image

I will finish with the exterior area. You cannot go there by the street but by a second door from the bar. To continue on that sand green pattern, I added a mosaic floor with another color combination: sand green/tan.
You will notice the lack of chairs and its normal, that area is just to pose glasses  ;-)  (like in the bar I went to in Phillie for 3 months lool).
To have a less Dark bley wall feeling, I added lots of vegetation for a cosy feel and a dark bley lamp post for night lighting  ;-)

Posted Image

To finish, here are the 2 jolly sigfigs having a drink  X-D

Posted Image

More pics here !!

Enjoy and please comment in the other thread  ;-)

Well, this is my entry. Sorry about the length, but like Hinckley said... when you build something you want to show lots of pictures and details.


It�s modeled after the classic American diner that were prevalent in the 1970�s. Big signs, flat buildings, lots of windows.  These would good examples, but I wasn�t try to copy any, just the feel.


So, here it is, in all it�s excessive glory.  The pictures have links to higher res pictures too, for those who care.

The folder, when moderated

a) View from front, as you enter
Posted Image

b) �minifig�s eye view�
Posted Image

c) right side
Posted Image

d) The �cheesy� giant sign
Posted Image

e) Another view
Posted Image

f) The back of the restaurant
Posted Image

g) bird�s eye view
Posted Image

h) This restaurant has very advanced mechanicals and electricals, from the main power room which has the AC coils, but also provides power to the giant rooftop sign.  The chimneys to the right are for the cooktop hood

Posted Image

i) the AC coils and shack

Posted Image

j) now the roof is off, so we can see inside.  This one is worth seeing in high res.
Posted Image

k) The back wall swings open to reveal the bathroom, and side wall swings open to provide a �behind the counter� look at the restaurant inside

Posted Image

l) Behind the counter view
Posted Image

m) The cook�s nook. I wouldn�t want what�s in that pot.
Posted Image

n) The grill has a light brick under it, so it glows when the power is turned on
Posted Image

o) this is a view from inside the restaurant, towards the counter, with the swinging wall closed. The medical people there are enjoying a healthy snack.

Posted Image

p) The girls� soccer team is in one booth , and a couple of other dudes in the booth near the juke box
Posted Image

q) Two weird characters.  What the heck is that walrus eating?

Posted Image

r) the cleaning girl is heading downstairs to scrub the washroom. You are seeing her through the back door of the restaurant
Posted Image

s) The bathroom.  There goes all my 1 x 1 tiles.
Posted Image

t) One of the soccer team girls is on the john. Lego voyeurism.
Posted Image

u, v , w,  x, ) there are three cars at the diner. A small white doctor�s car, a �FABRIK� truck  delivering sprockets from the FABRIK factory (thanks Copmike!), and a dragster type car

I was told to enter the damn thing, so I am >:-(  :'-)

I'm probably late too, it's been that kind of day (I did look at cameras though and I'm waiting for a deal).

Therfore, we get the non-buildable digital entry! :-$


Posted Image
Thumbnails for the rest, all in the gallery. They're a little big on a slow connection.

Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Now, anyone who votes for me is an idiot, so nyah! :-P

Seriously though, thanks for insisting I enter, even though I didn't want to. This whole thing was a lot of fun until the camera failure, even the pressure of waiting for orders and such. I fully intend to post the real result of my efforts once I can.

I'll also add this, neither this entry or the one I actually built stands a chance against some of the beautiful work up there, I'm really happy to see how creative this community can be! *y*

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!
