The Old Lifeboat Station
Posted 17 June 2012 - 07:13 PM
Hey guys, i finally found a bit of time to build something, so I figured I would attempt the Lifeboat Station for my collection. Im quite happy with how the colorscheme worked out, I opted for Maersk Blue as it stood out better then medium blue.
Situated in Looe, Cornwall, stands the old Lifeboat station which was built in 1866. Its second Lifeboat 'The Ryder' served for twenty-eight years, right up until the station was closed in 1930, and during this time she was launched twelve times and saved thirty-seven lives. Today, the fully restored Ryder is the only surviving Standard Self-Righting Lifeboat in the country and is moored in Polperro Harbour as part of the Heritage Museum display.
Thanks for viewing

Someday, if I ever have the money, I'd love to buy an MOC from you. Out of curiosity, if you were ever to sell something like this Lifeboat Station, how much would it cost?

Lovely work DC, the brickwork is fabulous and the colours are so calm.
I played Kian Otherus in EBRP and finished as Lorraine Bailey in MOTEE.
I died as scum Chief Astrobiology Officer Richard Francis in Bob's Excalibur Mafia 2.0,
as scum Augustus "Gus" Staines in Noir Mafia and as snooty old Alfonso in Ditalini - Mystery Mafia...

I the stone work look of this, it has a feel that would be original built around the time of the Civil War between the church and government forces.

And those windows, the door hinges, the roof, the greenery... so much to enjoy. Off to Flickr now for a closer look :)

It is so nice, at first thought it was LDD.

The roof design, pavement, boat and brick work really are world-class designs; I'm sure many a Lego designer could learn loads from studying this beauty!
Well done, and I hope you do more of these city sets.

There are too many wonderful details to list.
The Maersk blue was a great choice and that red line around the base sets it off perfectly.
