I built a mini MOC at the weekend: the Imperial monitoring station.

To make sure the people are loyal, the Galactic Empire has to show, that nobody is able to hide. This station is built to spy the entire communication of a city.

It is based on the "Architecture" style, for example the trees.

Hope you like it.  :tongue:


Ps.: I know, it isn't completely proportional.  :wink:

That's awesome for a mini building :pir-wub: Id consider making the trees a little different though, they seem a bit warped concerning there shape :sceptic:

I think it's very cool, you did a grat job of utilizing all those tile pieces to give it a smooth look.

I kind of agree on the tree's but with a mini there are'nt alot of options.  I think the trees are easily identifiable, and could be improved but I'm not sure how.

A great building,  :thumbup:
I really like the front part with those staires and windows.

If you didn't say those where trees I hadn't a clue what those green bricks were supposed to be.

You're actually right. The only reason, why I used them is this Architecture Set. And it should have this simple touch.   :wink:

Thanks for the positive comments! I'm glad you like it. :sweet:

I like it myself and everything is good apart from the trees, I recommend adding brown trunks to them. The main building is awsome and I like those indented pieces you used(whatever they are called). Overall very good :thumbup:

Get over the trees, people!  :tongue: They're alien trees, OK? Move on!

Lovely detailing and an inspired use of those 1x4 bricks which hold rails. The sand blue side building is a great addition.

A great building! The details on the anteanna are great!  :classic:  You also proved that things like stud holes, notches, and grooves can feature details.  :sweet:

Impressive, mi lord Lion.  We will begin mass-production of these prefabricated Imperial spy-posts and begin aggressive deployment of said installation in an attempt to quell the insurrection amoungst the denizenry of the Galactic Empire!  Long live the Emperor....

Very nice design.  I'm not usually one for mini's, but I make thee exception here....   It could be the whole Imperial thing though... :sceptic:

I agree. The stairs and the antennae look really good too :thumbup: I can't wait to see more like this; we already saw a Jedi Temple in this forum. :thumbup:

Nice creation. I too agree the stairs looks really well done. But i don't get the green parts.

Great mini creation!

It really looks like a LEGO Architecture set, and I especially like the use of the 1 x 4 bricks with grooves. The lines inside the grooves make the pieces look like windows!
