Amazing! I love the use of the droid legs in the cafe fencing and the Indy whips as decoration.

Absolutely brilliant, Erdy!  :thumbup:

I love the luscious dark blue and light blue. The whips and battle droid legs are an excellent technique, and the details inside the ice-cream shop are wonderful. I also particularly like the layers of color on the umbrella tops, the chairs, and the spaghetti. :pir_laugh2:

Overall, a very clean and detailed "entry". I wish I could build something this awesome!  :pir-classic:

This is so very lovely! I love the umbrella's, the roof, the droid leg fence, the big ice cream sign, the figures are lovely and might I say Willy Scott's hair looks brilliant for an ice cream. Great creation!

That is very nice Erdy! I love it.
There are so many awesome things in here. The bright blue on the building is already very nice.
I like the icecream sign, the parasols, the chairs and many, many more. The roof technique is great as well. :thumbup:
Very good job Erds, and please give me some discount on icecream there!

Just beautiful work Erdy! You continue to get better and better with your MOCs. This is one of my favs of yours for sure. The Ice cream tubs are great, as are the nice little details achieved thru interesting parts usage. I will look over this in time for inspiration.

A wonderful and impressing MOC indeed. I love all the detail
work you have put in it. It is impossible for me to point out any
particular thing I like the most, but if I had to I would say the
color scheme used - the houses in two different types of blue,
brown and white. Absolutly lovely! You have put the bar up high,
the rest will have a really hard time if they want to beat this. :pir-classic:

I always like the use of staff sig-figs (I generally like MOCs with sig-figs).

Nice work, Erds!

As others have said, the Indy whips are a lovely decorative touch and it's nice to finally see a use for all those droid legs! :laugh:

The colours are beautifully done. You know one of the 2010 Racers sets has medium blue cheese in it now too? :look:

Fantastic! :pir-sweet:

Excellent creation Erdy! What's there not to like? :pir-wub:

The combination of light blue and brown is just stunning! These two colours have a superb result and I think that it's the best colour scheme for an ice cream shop! The buliding looks like a cake!

The umbrellas are great and smartly created too! :thumbup: The ice cream stand/fridge looks very realistic!

Apart from pirates, this MOC would fit in a city layout perfectly!


Great!
:thumbup:

EDIT:
Forgot to mention the amazing roof structure!

There's a PTV 3 going on already? Where have I been?! :pir-tongue:

Svelte, when I was building this I kept thinking "I wish there was medium blue cheese", so that would be awesome.

Thanks again to all of you. :pir-sweet:

Great entry, really staff-worthy :pir-classic:  A lot of nice details and techniques :thumbup:
Because so many people have mentioned all those techniques before, I leave it with this.
The use of sigfigs is also nice :pir-sweet:
Wonderfoul entry Erdbeereis!

This is brilliant 'Erdy'. I really like the color scheme you used and the attention to detail is great (the different ice cream flavors, the big cone outside, the decorative whips, ...

Great job Erds! I'm keen on my "Spaghetti-Eis", looks...yummy. :pir_laugh2:
Great MOC mate, that's a nice coulour scheme, and an equaly nice design. The use of parts like the Indy whips etc. are very clever and add a very nice touch to the model. It looks as though it could slide right into a modular street. Well done, and good luck in the contest! :pir-classic:

The roof is awesome! Same goes for the colors you've used in this MOC: dark blue, medium blue, reddish brown, white, tan, ... are all great new(er) colors that I love experimenting with myself. Using the droid legs for the fence is something I haven't seen done before and it looks great, so does the spaghetti  :thumbup:
