Winter Village: Mountain Guides Station
Posted 29 December 2011 - 02:09 PM
Since the first box of the Winter Village theme, the Toy Shop, I came up with the idea that the Village lies in the mountains.
So, year after year, I expanded it in a sort of "northern italy - mountain" style. So this year I decided to add a Mountain Guides station, because, you know, mountains can be very dangerous!
I started with the image in my head of a wooden chalet, and from this first idea I developed the design with LDD. The outcome is in the next pictures and I'm pleased with it.
I know, I know, it's a slyghtly bigger than the other buildings of the winter village, and if, in some way, you find it weird with the sidewalks and other details, like the hydrant, there's a reason. I built it for my "modular winter village"; the module is based on the 32x32 baseplate and has a street with sidewalk on the both sides, but that is another story and it's a little off topic.
But let's return to my creation: on the main floor you can find the core of the station with an office desk, chair, computer, desk lamp and a cabinet, to manage all the reports and the emergency calls.
On the side of the office there's a garage with an ATV, ready for every emergency, and all the equipment for its maintenance.
The first floor is divided in two: the first part is an observation terrace with the flags of the mountain guides (I drew them, starting from the snowboard of the serie 5 snowboarder guy and from the airplane of the Flying Mummy Attack and then printed on self-adesive paper) and a telescope, and the second part is an attic for various equipment.
Finally, on the roof I put a satellite dish for emergency communications.
In the last picture you can also see the ATV leaving for a rescue mission.
In total there are 7 figures: 4 mountan guides and 3 boy scouts, full of excitement waiting for their first hike in the snow.
I hope you enjoy it!
Happy Holidays and Happy New Year to everyone!!

Amazing!! In my opinion you have exactly cought the mood of the mountain winter village, maybe (IMHO of course) a few Christmas details would be better but surely an awesome work. I love all details, swear. It would be great to see a set like this officially released!
Brick on and good luck for the contest!
