Hi all

Following the construction of 2 new Fire trucks here and here, I have decided that my city needs new station as new trucks would not fit into the old one. Here is the result:

The station itself; i'm missing some stickers for the sign but otherwise it it finished. No interiors are done. The windows have curtains and the garage doors are my favorite.

Looks very good, the architecture has something good, and something I can't put my finger on what it is, in a good way ofcourse. Does it already has an interior? Anyways great work

This is fantastic, I think. It looks like a modern fire station, built in the style of Classic Town, although you've used the nice red garages from the fire brigade, which fit perfectly. The white/black stripe design is very well executed. The engines are good as well. Nice work.  :thumbup:  :thumbup:

Well, I would say he is missing stickers. That makes it way more realistic. LEGO has stickers on all there Fire Stations AFAIK (Except exclusive10197).

Do you need replacement stickers for LEGO (reproductions and customs): ministickers.nl

What then about the LEGuanO?!

AWESOME fire station 'zeki', excellent job on the smaller details like the curtains in the second stoery windows and larger ones like the hose drying tower.....man they must be long hoses. :grin:
Very nice trucks too, I love that pick up with the white covering on it ! :wub:
Great work 'zeki' and Brick On ! :grin:

Great F.D. MOC zeki :thumbup:  Great modern design. Finally, a station with four, same size, garages, instead of one in a half. :tongue:  Great job!

I really like the simplistic beauty of this Fire Station, it's a nice combination of conservative modern design and classic build. Effectively fitting those fire vehicles inside is a pretty neat functionality too. And did I say I love those custom fire trucks that you have? Great job on this zeki! :thumbup:

Thanks for all the nice comments.

man they must be long hoses.

Actually the hoses measure from 15-20 meters so the tower size is kinda realistic.

I know i have to make them and add them to the truck and the station itself. It will complete them.

The more I look at the station the less i like the front door entrance as it is the only window/door without any curtains. Any ideas how to make it more appealing?

Sticker it a bit? Maybe with the fire logo, or some sort of edging?

Hello!

With those little details like the outer window sills or curtains you even added the icing on the cake to this excellent fire station. Well done! :classic:

Cheers,

Thanks for all nice comments.
