New Block City Phase 2
Posted 04 November 2007 - 09:00 PM
A while back I posted these pics from the beginings of my New Block City project:
Now I've embarked on phase 2; a more modern high-rise part of the city which includes a hospital, apartment block, office building and CN-style tower with a revolving (motorised!) restaurant on top. This is still a work in progress so there still some odd-coloured bricks I need to get replacements for. Enjoy the pics!

city block looks fantastic. *y*
Your Tower with that decent revolving restaurant´s a pretty cool idea too, but I
think that your apartment looks more like an (very good) annex to the hospital.... 8-|

The tower is fully 90cm tall and is the tallest Lego structure I've ever built.
Blurry close of of the restaurant which seats 8.
The chef peers out of kitchen which is midway up the tower. The tower doesn't actually have any interior at all as the space is taken up with motor, gears and axles!
A prototype tower containing my first attempt at powering the revolving restaurant. The micro motor was nowhere near powerfull enough and produced very jerky rotation under load.
The final design contains a large 9v motor and lots and lots of gears!
The idea for the tower came when I saw next year's Creator 4995 Sky-Crane Helicopter. Once I get it, I can recreate this scene: X-D

The sign on the theater and the hospital building look awesome too *wub*
How many phases will there be?
The build a frigate tutorail!

- Very smart usage of the Tuners Garage!
- That tower is simple but still stunning
- The office building is cool!
- I really love the hospital.
- The apartment block is very whacky looking but still excellent!
- That restaurant is a cool idea!
- I love the "kitchen"!

im not too fond of towers, like the CN... i imagine it would be hard to build one from LEGOs.

Thanks for all the kind comments Guys. Because Highland Cattle asked for it, I've spent the past couple of weeks putting together a layout combining phase 1 and 2. Because I have such a busy life, progress has been very slow, but here it is:
A busy street corner. Residents were worried when the sign on the theatre first went up, but then the theatre manager went and got some "v"s. Vader and Yoda are first in the queue for tickets.
Another busy street scene.
The intersection of Brick Street and East 40th Street, showing off my NYC style police cars.
The inevitable road construction going on (I wonder if anyone can spot what makes this scene a bit Canadian, other than my CN tower homage)! ;-)
A wedding at the City Hall.
A police surveillance helicopter parked on top of the hospital.
Captian Green Hair asked how many phases will there be? Well, as many as I have the time and space to build! My New Block City project is infinitely expandable as you can see in this layout plan I made.
I'm currently working on phases 3 and 4 which are a fire station and construction site respectively. X-D

Yoda and Vader at the cinema, very funny.... hmm, Canadian.... no idea, perhaps
that orange/black barrier? That´s a very cool red sport car, BTW....
You really´ve some great plans, see you later, alligator.... :-P

30 mph is way to fast for safely passing road works anyway, altough by the look of things they might as well just shut down that one lane or set up some temporary lights. No one's getting past with traffic looking like that!
Still, awesome project you've got going there! *y*
