Hi

It�s been a while since my last post here at EB, my only excuse is that I have used all my spare time working on my latest MOC so please forgive me  :-$

Luigi�s Pizza Place is Blohmtons most popular restaurant and it�s own by Mr. Luigi who moved from Italy to Blohmton about a decade ago. His younger brother is also working at the pizza restaurant where they offer traditional Italian pizza.  As most of Blohmtons citizens also Mayor Barbossa loves pizza and he visits the restaurant almost every day.

It�s bley, grey, dark and old,�. but hey, a lot of buildings out there in the real world are actually grey so why not?

Hope you like it. All feedbacks, positive or negative, are highly appreciated.


BRgds

You are a very, VERY good builder  *y*  *y*  *y*
It has lots of detail and I like Luigi's face it's very well chosen  X-D  ;-)
No really, it's fantastic  *wub*

Outstanding work Barbossa! *wub*

You dont have to apologize  for your little break - as long as the results stay as high-class as they are. ;-)
One thing Id like to know: How many of the bricks used did you have to buy at Bricklink?

CC-MOCs ON!

A wonderful work!  *y*
The facades great, with lot of details and a beautiful balkony,
and the interior is absolutely fantastic, I love that bathroom
and your pizza oven! Although most pizzerias I knowre using
crustaceans as decoration rather than swords....  X-D
Tiled dreams on!  :'-)

Oh, I am so envious of your work.

There's no need for excuses when you spend your time MOC buildings like that, it more than makes up for it. In short; it looks fantastic.

Dammit. Im starting to wonder why the bloody hell Im colleting Space and Exo-Force, when so lovely MOCs can be built in the city theme.

Its gorgeous. If Id be rich and have the room for display, Id buy this instantly, along your post office ;)

Really, this is fantastic. *wub*

What a great eye for detail you have!
The hingebricks used for decoration in the facade, the little lights on the tables, the castle door in the toilet.... fantastic.  *wub*

And an almost studless build, you sure have a lot of tiles!

Lego should release this one, I'll buy it for sure.

Thank you Asuka,
I am quite happy with the bathroom so I am glad you liked it.
Its might true that most pizzerias use crustaceans for decoration  :-) , but this is Luigis grandfathers first pizza cutter and a highly valued family artefact, so thats the reason why its up on the wall  :-)

That is a magnificient MOC there Barbossa. Worthy of a Lego set to say the least.
My one critisism is that the building sems a bit uneven with all the colour at the bottom and none at the top, but that is rwally just minor! Make more I demand then give them to me for free!

Why are you stabbing that poor parrot?!  :-P

Beautiful MOC!

That's really good; you really have captured the style.  *wub*  As for being absent, sometimes I think I spend too little time building, too much time on here.... :-$

Thanks SirNadroj,
I have more modular plans for Blohmton but due to the fact that Mayor Barbossa decided to buy his first 9V train set it seems that the construction work will be several weeks delayed  :-)

Thank you Mr. M
For your information this bloody parrot can be a real plague to the customers, so he needs a bit of stabbing once and a while.  :-P

Don't bother about spending too much time at EB; I believe its as much valuable as spending time MOCing.  ;-)

Hehe, quite funny that you mentioned skellis. The first thing I placed in the that corner (where the parrot stands) was a skeleton. It just seemed too creepy so close to the tables so I replaced it with that annoying parrot.
