Hi Eurobrickers :-)

I would like to show you some pictures of the newest building in Blohmton, �The Blohmton Police Station�.

This MOC is based on the 4954 Creator set but different roof slopes and hundreds additional pieces. For a long time I have been thinking about adding a tan house in Blohmton so the 4954 set was an excellent start. Much of the police stuff (and minifigs) is taken from the 7237 police station.  

I would like to have used a different colour on the roof slopes but I can�t find on I like. Does anybody have any suggestions? Maybe be some Photoshop manipulation pictures  :-P


So hopefully with this new arrival the streets in Blohmton will be safe day and night.  *pirate*


All feedback is always appreciated

Wowdoodly, a great station with a decent city-feeling, very accurate and with a cool
and classic, somehow British atmosphere....  *y*
And it fits fantastically to your other buildings. Very fine!  :'-)

Whoa!  8-
Now that's a nice police station! I really like to see how complete it is with all the small rooms inside and the very high level of details from security cameras to tiles on the floors.

There should be a Caf corner index with all those great CC MOD/MOCs around.

Awesome job  *y*!.  The tan and grey look great; I would suggest using black for the roof slopes, it would blend with the top better.  I love these CC style buildings you make.

Yet another fine MOC you've got there. It does indeed look like a police station as well.

I would agree with Zeeky, black would look good on a tan building.

Great MOC. I *wub* all those details in the interior, especially the identification office *y*

Now all you need are a Zenigata and a Lupin minifigs... X-D

Interior details fantastic! I like the height chart on the perp ID wall best. The fingerprint ID station too. I assume those come from police sets.... but I hadn't seen them before.

Excellent use of stairs also. Trickier than many people realize.


Excellent....

Another great building!  *wub* 4954 is a great set isn't it? I love how you put so much work into the interiors as well. I plan to be breaking my 7237 soon and I might be stealing some of your ideas!  :-$ Is the stuff you can see in the basement just decoration or is there actually something down there? Oddly, my only negative comment is that the police station next to the restaurant is just too much grey for me. I tend to think you should try another roof colour. Prefably not black as there is enough black on that block already. Dark red?

Absolutely, in my opinion Caf Corner is an awesome set and gives so much inspiration.

Thanks Sinner, 4954 is absolutely a great set! I love it, and it's loaded with useful parts.

I fully understand what you mean when it comes to placement of the police station (next to the pizza place) Please be informed that this is just temporarily. It was just to get a shot of those three buildings, that I have present here on EB, together. I think I might place this blue building between the police station and the pizza place (please refer to the picture).

Some of you have suggested black roof and Sinner suggested dark red roof so today I have tried a few options. I think I have found my favourite but I would appreciate to hear what you Eurobrickers think.

Wow, seeing the pictures the color of the roof it's suddenly a tough call!

The black and dark blue keep the building looking "official", so either of them would work. The dark red sure makes the building more colorful, but I think it would look better on another building (a dark green and grey one, with lime accents maybe?). Tan just melts into the rest of the building, and looks IMO, worse than the light grey roof you had previusly - besides, the grey roof actually looks nice when the station is placed next to a building that doesn't have a vast amount of grey in it.

Still. fantastic work you do, and then you let us humble people make decisions for you. :-D

MOC on! *y*

Good observation but actually I didn't bother to put anything in the basement. The red bricks that you have seen in one of the pictures is just pillars supporting the floor. 8-

Hi Freddie,

Thanks for shearing your opinion. Your thoughts are pretty the same that I have.
Dark Red makes it colourful but would probably work better on another building.
Black works great but as you mentioned, grey works also great as long as the station is not placed next to another grey building.

Any other opinions?

Great work as always! It's the reason you got my vote in the City contest *y*

Love the dark blue roof change, that's definitely the way I'd go, even though it's an unexpected colour combination. That's saying a lot considering my desperate love for all things dark red. Only other colour I'd try is dark green if you've got it, but that blue really looks good.

Oh heck, I just love all the dark colours and am still annoyed that we don't get more of them.

Very nice interior work, especially the little police touches. I would agree that an arched extension to the building would be nice, perhaps leading back into a garage or secure prisoner transport loading area.

Can't say enough good things here, just love it! *wub*

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

Great building again, Barbossa! *wub*

As already other members have pointed out, the interior is pretty cool!
How did you do the fingerprint tile? 8-  Is it a regular piece or a self made one?

I can only confirm that. Masses of useful parts.
Everyone who hasnt bought it yet and is only a bit interested in buildings should buy it.

Now.

Hi imperialshadows,

As you say dark blue looks good, but I think it's a difficult choice. I would loved to tried dark green and perhaps brown???!!???

A garage extension is a good idea, I will defiantly consider it, but then I also have to buy a police car :)
Blohmton is still a small city with only a couple of police motorbikes.

Thanks Holodoc!

You can find the fingerprint tile in the 7237 police set! Tons of great police stuff in that set.

Wow Barbossa!  :'-)  Thats brilliant! And to think I was so stupid as to avoid it till now!
It does look a lot like cafe corner (duh!  :-| ) but the style of it and the old-fashioned look certaintly make up for it.

The extras are very appreciated, they certaintly fill up a lot more space than Cafe Corner itself!  :-D

I also would like to see a garage extension for a police car.

Great work!  *sweet*

Well I don't blame you; it's not like you actually could fit a mini-fig down there.  X-D As for the roof, I would go for blue!

I think the dark blue roof is best. This is an amazing building, with a fantastic, detailed interior. I love the corners/edges of the building, with the tiles as bricks. A lovely design, similar to Cafe Corner but also different. Great job, your other buildings are superb also. *y*  *y*
