Benny's Classic Space - themed shop - 31026 & 60071 MODs

Recommended Posts

This building is my most recent form of Benny's Spaceship Shop. It sells all things Space themed, with Benny making model rockets in the back and a large model space city in the front window. Benny also lives on the upper floor. I already have the car, and just need to make the building in real life.

please note, some prints are missing from the model:

The sloped 4x2 sign out front is actually this piece: http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=30363pb021#T=C&C=7

While the arch in the window display should feature this print: http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=4490pb02&idColor=7#T=C&C=7

Benny's upstairs living quarters include a stove, sink and bed while downstairs is the model space city and check out counter with model rocket. The 2x2 tile in front of the model rocket should be printed like this: http://alpha.bricklink.com/pages/clone/catalogitem.page?P=3068bpb0353#T=C&C=1

The rear of the building features a loading dock.

I was inspired to build this model after seeing the dark red half-track / truck in set 60071, Hovercraft Arrest.

The model looked easy to duplicate, but it proved difficult to create an exact copy. I then decided to take it in a another direction and create a generic American 1950's car, which eventually got turned into this version of Benny's Classic Space themed automobile.

The model features a row of space-ship styled seats and "double" tail lights. (I used a trans-red grille to create a nice effect.) the white tile above the rear bumper is supposed to be Benny's license plate. The CS logo part on the trunk is the same one from the store sign above the door.
