[MOC] Alt build of 21310 Old Fishing Store

Recommended Posts

Hi there. I'm kind of new here, so if my post here is wrong somehow, let me know. I'd like to share a MOC with you, an alt build of 21310 Old Fishing Store. I love the Old Fishing Store, but I also love the Creator 3-in-1 sets because I like taking them apart and building something new later (I don't tend to leave sets up on display for more than a couple of weeks - I just don't have the space). So I made a smaller little lodge or store (there's a bedroom in the loft). The roof is partially flat and partially angles down, and you can lift the roof on the hinges to see into the 2nd floor. There's a tower with the telescope (and a storage area in the tower) and a swing hanging below it. I've got a pond (or at least part of one) with fish, with the boy trying to catch one, and the cat and bird also hoping for some fish. The captain is at a campfire with a lady friend toasting marshmallows. (boy it was hard making a fire with so few red, orange and yellow pieces... I did cheat and use one flame piece from another set). If you want to see more photos, or download the LXF file, you can do so here: https://bricksafe.com/pages/CathyVT/cathysfishinglodge . The step by step instructions that LDD creates when you click "building guide mode" are terrible (doing things in an impossible order, like framing the windows all around, then putting in the window) but I'm working on a solution to that... Hope you like it!

This is nice and does give the 3 in 1 vibe you mentioned, I particularly like the swing.:thumbup:

There are programs that can make better instructions from ldd files, one that I know you can find right here on eurobricks is blueprint, try searching that in the digital design sub-forum, hope this helps.

Looks good! I like that you kept the strong points of the original, like the roof and facade and went from there. Also a fun idea to include a pond with (kind of flying^^) fishes. :classic:

EDITED to add - I thought someone here suggested making a boat with the leftover pieces, but it wasn't here, it was at https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-10700/CathyVT/cathys-fishing-lodge/#comments . That's why I wrote the following. See post below for update!

A boat, huh?.... No rounded pieces, but if they can make BB-8 out of rectangular bricks... maybe I'll give it a shot. :)
