  1. Allan's vehicle and building creations ... photo updates.

    Gas Station is 99% finished, just waiting on some whips to use as pump hoses and some printed tiles to go on the walls. Gas Station takes up 3 large grey base plates to keep in theme with the rest of my building MOC's. Glowing light in the pizza oven and moving car wash brushes. Enjoy :)

    Hi, the lighting units are old ones from Artifex Creation, they have 10 different patterns. Due to them using 3mm LED's and thick wires they would be too hard to get to the headlights. Using magnet wire and SMD LED's would work. I do also use LifeLites units in other vehicles, they use LED's or SMD LED's. I do have working SMD LED headlights and taillights on my Ghostbusters vehicle. Enjoy :)

    I finally got around to putting stickers on my Ambulance and Fire Rescue. Photos and videos below: Enjoy :)

    Update on my gas station. 90% done, waiting on parts from Bricklink. Photo's with roof removed. Updating my car wash to fit in with the gas station. Enjoy :)

    True. Not on my current plans to build one even though they have my surname on them 😀. We are moving back to Napier in January so I will probably be having a break from building more MOC's after I finish my gas station.

    Nightfall, I have removed the sink and replaced it with a coffee machine. Bought the City Pizza van for some parts including stickers. Here are some photos showing the use of the stickers. Enjoy :)

    Thanks supertruper1988. I have now increased the depth of the building by 4 studs to allow more room in the dine in area. I have made a Bricklink order for the seating. So while waiting for the parts I have started on the service station side of the building. So far a drinks fridge, 3 shelving units and a counter have been built.

    Photo of recent build of pizza side. Pizza oven, sink, double door fridge/freezer and counter. Still have to do the dine in seating. Enjoy :)

    I don't think this is the last of SC. The expense of making new molds for the new triangle small tile and the new shortened mudguard (fender) for this theme will see it around for a while. It is my favourite theme. I used to drive Ford's, and Ferrari's and Porche's are my dream cars so am pleased to see more of them. It is also a good source of parts for many of my vehicle MOC's.
  10. Modulars have always had the classic smiley face until the 2018 Downtown Diner. Below is a statement from LEGO: Over the past 10 years our modular buildings have evolved in many ways. We’ve added more interior details, more story-telling and more emotional triggers such as unique decorations on windows & Minifigure torsos. We now feel the time is right to bring the Minifigure expression in line with all the amazing details now offered throughout our models. We have always loved the classic smiley face for its versatility and nostalgia value, but are now excited to explore the new possibilities expressive faces will offer us.

    Update on gas (petrol) station. i have decided to make the left side of the building a pizza diner. The rear of the pizza oven will have a light brick to give the oven an orange glow. Here are some LDD work in progress pictures. Enjoy :)

    Due to the size of the 911 spoiler it was called a whale tail 😀
  13. 2018 Speed Champions Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    True. On closer inspection of the photo I have to agree with you. They will still look good on my future MOC's.

    I love it when new colours come out for the SC mudguards (fenders) that I can use in MOC's. Now we get dark green and lime green to add to the dark blue one. 😁
