Rook’s Micro City



There’s shout out to SWU but I feel this is more Sci-Fi than SWU. Completed this several weeks ago, but finally got around to photographing this. For window display @ Fairview.

Very nice micro scale city. I like the look&feel.

I'm impressed you can get so much variation and still hold true to the theme.

I love the colours, the structures and especially the spaceport (is it supposed to be one?)
Also love the fact that it seems to be expandable  :thumbup:

Yeah I might add a few more ships in docking positions before I display it in April. There's two small ships flying around and the micro SWU set landing. I think I’ll add another 1-2 docked.  :thumbup:

AWESOME creation 'Rook' :grin: , but why isn't posted in the SW forum....you do have a CW Republic Destroyer above the city and it totally looks it would appear in CW for sure. :wink:
Excellent use of trans-blue and lime green to add colour to a grey landscape. :thumbup:

Lovely work. Can't wait to check it out :)

Love the trans med blue and dark bley colour scheme. And the Rook City backdrop works really nice from a low angle.

And the little sail boat is inspired.

The sailboat I've done before and I've seen other builders use the same 2 brick technique.  :thumbup:

The Venator is from the polybag set. I just added a piece or two probably. Though now I've removed it because the scale for it was off. I've instead added in a few ships from the Advent Calendar.

Hello!

What an inspiring pleasure for your eyes! :sweet: All the different shapes for the buildings are fantastic and give it a realistic future city look. :classic: I like the use of transparent light blue glass elements throughout the city. Everything looks perfect here. :classic:

Cheers,

Like I said on Flickr, what with the color scheme as well as the micro build theme, this looks like Master Builder Academy Level 1 Kit 2 on steroids - wish I could see it in person, it's fantastic in pictures!

The color scheme and ecological outlay of this build blows my mind .... I really love it and this is what i kind of feel future citys will look like if humanity got more responsible.

Very nice build indeed. :)

And if you squint the space port building looks like a mushroom cloud, if humanity got less responsible.  :laugh:

Hahaha ... Well, better have one made of "bricks" than one made from the fallout of an actual wave of bombs ... Besides, you can have an apartment with a very good view in your version.
I bet that the view from that altitude in case of a real nuke would be just as beautiful ... Just not everlasting as your build. ;)
