Hi everyone

I'm new here in the forum and like to share my first MOC which I have been working on over the last 3 months. I build the MOC with BrickLink Studio 2.0 and used the new Eyesight Render for my images.

I love the modular building sets from Lego but I missed the detail level on the upper floors. According to this I decide to design and build a more detailed modular building with more minifigures than the regular ones from lego.

This building represents a classic British pub with a lot of typical details like a British cab, a London phone box, a classical English pub facade with a lot of flowers and much more.

The modular style building with 3 floors and an accessible roof is built on a 32x32 base plate and contains 32 minifigures and approximately 6000 parts.

Level 1 - Bar
The first floor contains the main bar area of the pub and small full-featured restroom with toilet, urinal and lavatory. Outside there are bar tables and a red phone box.

Thanks very much for reading and I hope you like my first MOC. There are more pictures on Bricksafe and feel free to support my MOC on Rebrickable and let me know what you think. 

At the moment I am building my MOC with real Lego bricks. As soon as possible I will post any photos of the real lego building.

I personally like it a lot. It looks a lot like what it would in  real life. Good project overall. Shoutout to simon84 for building a marvelous creation.

Incredible modular building. I really like it. The plant along the wall at the back look pretty good. Good job!

A great looking modular with tonnes of details. I really like the texture you've created on the roofline and the taxi looks really good too. It really captures the busy and bustling atmosphere of a British Pub.

Dang, it make me thirsty just looking at it. :laugh:

Great model! Needless to say that the interior detailing is superb. It’s also true that its kind of hard to really go wrong with it, but it really does capture the atmosphere of a crowded pub. I’m a big fan of what you’ve done architecturally in the ground level. It’s something I also often do in my own modulars, pulling the ground level that extra stud or two to give it all that plus of charisma. I think the black works wonders for that area. The rest of the design screams less “British” to me personally, but that’s coming from someone who has not put two feet on english land for a little while. The roofline is a bit over-the-top, but who cares, really it looks jarring and fun and good anyways.

You took me back to Temple Bar for a minute or two with this cool build! :sweet:

I would buy! One of the best MOC's I've seen. The piece count is lovely! Would cost a fortune to build though. =)

Superb job! Congrats!

Truly amazing modular - can’t believe you’ve got 32 minifigs into one model!  Looking forward to seeing more MOCs from you in the future.

@LegoBuilder45, @bricksboy, @peedeejay, @Bricked1980, @paupadros, @Glumsfield, @Vilhelm22 Thanks for all your kind comments. I'm glad you like my MOC. It was a lot of work to design it, create the building instruction and to render the images. But it was a lot of fun for me. Even more fun at the moment is assembling with real lego bricks. I will post some photos soon.

Thanks very much! Yes the piece count is enormous! If you want to buy, you can support me on rebrickable and buy the building instruction Lion Pub - PDF Building Instruction

Lovely modular :wub: I like the front of the pub very much and the interior is wonderful, too. You paid great attention to details and you've created a great atmosphere!

There's just a minor detail that I don't like that much: in my opinion there are too many tendrils. I would have liked it better if they were just on the roof. But apart from that, I like it very much. There is so much going on and so much to discover.

Can't wait to see it built with real bricks.

It's time to share the first results with you. :sweet:

In the last few weeks I have received dozens of deliveries of Lego bricks and was able to start assembling the first floor on Monday. 

Here are some impressions:

The assembly is a lot of fun! :laugh:

Absolutely gorgeous building you've created! Really feels like a pub in an older building in England. You've made great use of the lesser used Olive Green here and packed the whole building floor to ceiling with detail. There are so many great details here but I especially like the iconic phone booth and that taxi you've made. If this is your first one I can't see what you bring to the modular MOC fans in the future and also looking forward to seeing it completed in real bricks. Fantastic work!

Smashing.
Great façade, back and roof, and the pub interior is terrific.
Keep clicking those bricks together!

Assembly completed! :sweet:

The long search for the right Lego brick in dozens of pressure closing bags has come to an end. After four days of fun assembling my first modular building, all 6000 Lego bricks are where they belong.

Here is the final result:

It fits nice between the "Assembly Square" and the "Parisian Restaurant" buildings.

I didn't get - Is it a 1 set of several? 

What have you bought additionally?

Looks awesome! Happy for you, this is something I want to do as well - design digitally and then order the parts. Was it too expensive though? 6k bricks? I'm just curious how it compares to buying the regular modular building.
