[MOC] Service Station

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

I present you my most recent MOC, a Service station! I got inspired to build it, after I bought set 60132, it felt somehow incomplete to me. It uses a 32x32 baseplate, pluas 32x16.

I think it turned out good, had to use some "illegal" connections in order to do the double sign, but I thinks it was worthy! It is also the First MOC, that I noticed that there are some connections that we can do in LDD, that are not possible with the real bricks.

Sorry for the light and space for the photos, but it was the best spot I could manage for now. Hope you guys like it!

Nice, I like the way you have carried the red and green through into the floor. Is that WIFI sign an official one / sticker?

I wish they came up with a corner piece for the curved slopes as that would really finish off the roof nicely.

I love what you did there. I always loved builds that were simple, but detailed at the same time. Unfortunately, I don't have enough bricks, so I can't mod my buildings the way I want to. But I will do it someday. You get an A+ from me!

Awesome interior details, way better than the one I did like 2 months ago lol. Really cool service station.

Thanks @HereWeGoAgain! Well, it took me one year, between design, part order and building. Not so easy to play with Lego with a 11 month daughter... :blush:

Thanks @MAB . It was a pain to tile the floor, but I think it turned out good. WiFi signal is a sticker from set 853921, those pack's come with really nice stickers.

Thanks @pooda! I bought the set and tried to use most of the parts I already had, but had to order a bunch of them. Nowadays, I just try to spend more money building MOC's then buying set's to build and then to store in a box due to having no space to display them.

An ideal choice of floor tiling. :thumbup:

Thanks @GeoBrick!

I agree. Simplicity and detail put in the same package.

Reminds me so much of a road trip I did recently. Your service station looks simply spot on, and the interior - absolutely brilliant! So many charming details. Its really bustling with life and ideas. Great work! :classic:

That's delightful.  A nice, modern station (with electric charging!), but still a very Lego feel.  I love all the details you've built into the interior.  You've really captured the feel of a convenience store with the variety of items, colors, etc..  Those low-angle shots under the fueling awning really sell the feel and I can imagine myself standing there filling up.  Great build!

Looks great but I would say that the light grey curb probably shouldn’t be where the cars would drive across to enter the service/gas pumps.

Very cool!

A deceptively "simple" design which I'm sure was hard to capture in Lego brick form.

The level of detail in the interior is also impressive.

Great MOD of an already cool set. Nicely done!

Thanks @peedeejay! I loved that set as soon as I saw it. It has already a lot of cool details, like the pump that I barely changed from the original one.

Thanks @LegoDW! I still don't own Corner Garage. but I guess that if I had a city, the people would be happy with my Service Station. :laugh:

Thanks @Littleworlds! Actually I got the inspiration for the interior, from a station that I stopped every weekend when I was traveling from Nuremberg to Zurich. :classic:

Thanks @deraven! It was not easy for me to take the pictures. Have an awesome camera, but my photography skills.... :damn:

I love all the little detailing in this, totally realistic feel to it indeed.

Brick On 'Marinho' !

Thanks @lightningtiger!

Thanks @gotoAndLego! You have a good point there... I might change that if I ever build a city and add this build there.

Thanks @Agent 86! I thinks it was worth the time I spend adding all the details. The few stickers also help a lot.

Nice one.I like the complete interior and those Octan colour scheme tiling.

Thanks @Man with a hat! Actually after I finish building it, it started to remind me of a pizzeria with all those tiles. :grin: But I thinks it looks good and represents the Octan scheme perfectly.

Nice MOD of the gas station. I did also a modification 3 years ago of this set.

What "illegal" techniques did you use? I built also the double sign and the only thing I had to do was cutting a hose.

Thanks @Nightfall! In my case, I used something like this: https://swooshable.com/snot/technic-plates
