Hi, this is my latest MOC, it is an Old Warehouse c.1900 in which Brown Bricks are recycle. The final product is a round plate 1 x 1, but there are also others product like normal bricks 1 x 4, modified bricks 1 x 4, and round bricks 1 x 1. The hole process is watched over by a quality superviser. In the crane there is an expilot and the boss is a old bussines man.

Some pictures to explain:

Very nice plant, I like it!  :thumbup:

Your machines look like they are really working and the Zenith view makes it look like a really tall building.
I'm also curious about your door,does it really work? I do see some hinges in there?

The only thing I don't really like is the facade, it looks rather bland in comparison to the sides of the building. I think it might look better if it were a bit refined and had some more tan instead of grey.
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

What a great idea and so well executed. The details of the production line are brilliant and, to echo above, the line really gives the effect of movement. The building itself is also very nicely done. I especially like the arched windows.

You have captured the look and feel of building of this type extremely well - the details and colour scheme are superb. Well done!  :thumbup:

WOW this old warehouse is GREAT!!!  :wub:  *oh2*
I love this kind of architecture, it reminds me of the hydroelectric plants of early 1900!  :blush:
Those windows are beautiful, the color scheme is perfect!
The technical details of the machinery inside leaves me speechless ...TOP WORK!!!  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:

This is an amazing building! The architectural style is very special, and the subtle changes in colours really add much style to the building. I like how you utilized the wide windows, and made the arches above the second row of windows. And the interiors is just as amazing as the building itself. First of all, the idea to recycle bricks is great. All the machines used in the recycling process are nicely done, and you even get various recycled bricks. My only wish would be to recycle other colours as well (in other recycle plants).

This really is superb. I looked at the first two pictures, and thought that even if it didn't have an interior (which I suspected it had) it'd be a fantastic building - I can see why some may feel that it's a bit boring, but the details of the exterior are really spot-on for this kind of a structure. As for the interior... it's such a fabulous idea, and so well executed that I'm envious of your imagination. Great stuff - it looks like it would actually work.

Great work, I really like your Factory. It's a nice change from the usual town buildings and vehicles. The idea of a 'brick recycling plant' is wonderful, there is a nice little ironic touch about it. And the machinery inside is just fantastic, very impressive and absolutely convincing! I also like the mechanism for the front gate, simple but clever.

On a side note, I think a red/dark red color scheme instead of tan would make the bulding look even better, it would resemble the impression of 'bricks' more in my opinion.

Thanks. Yes I agree, but i didn't enough red/dark red brick for that.

A really nice building and the interior details are superb. I actually like that tan colour for the bricks :thumbup:
Nothing of interest to show here to anybody on eurobricks.

Thought so. Unfortunately, dark red is one of the more expensive colors on bricklink, like most colors that are well suited for buildings :sceptic: But tan works well, too.

Truly inspiring, inside and out! I've seen a few LEGO factories before, but none with an interior as nice as that. I really like the exterior as well, and actually think the tan works well with the overall composition.

This is amazing - my jaw actually dropped open when I opened the topic!  

The building itself is wonderful, I love the arches over the windows and the colours of the bricks used - and the interior is excellent.  I wasn't expecting an interior, as the exterior was so good by itself, but the interior detail is incredible too.  I love the guy with the top hat overseeing it all!

This building is wonderful!  I am really impressed by the windows, which are very unique.  The colors on the exterior work very well.  Then there is the interior, which is very detailed, I can imagine that it is a actual working factory.

I look forward to more of your MOCs.
