    [MOC] New York Soho street

    It's Superb! (I lived in NY for 20+ years.) ... I could swear I've seen those buildings too, but I can't place it. Was that near Seventh Ave & 17th Street, or was that near Canal Street? Really well done - I've never had a MOC give me flashbacks like that.

    Help with MOC window, please!

    That is great advice - I'll have to remember that myself. quilkin - I'm sure you already thought of this, but in case you haven't - have you considered using a vehicle mudguard? Maybe a part like the following: Yes, on the one hand, the mudguard will not allow you to get the effect of multiple bricks and colors. But on the other hand, if you use a mudguard, you won't have to worry about the gaps created by trying to recreate that arch.

    New Intl AirPort control tower

    I'm a pilot (not a commercial pilot - just a private one), and I love this. So many details are spot-on: the runways (8 and 26) are correctly numbered; the PAPI lights; the blue omnidirectional lights for the taxiways; the "piano stripes" on the runway and the aiming point; the taxiway markings like hold short & stop; the white-on-black single digit numbers off to the side of the runway. That is really well done.
  4. I didn't realize how much better the modulars look when they're doubled - thank you for sharing.... and I love your Square.

    MOC: Train Station - the Musee d'Orsay in Paris

    Thank you everyone. One thing that needed improvement were the circular windows on the tower roofs. I used the wagon wheels as a placeholder because I couldn't figure out how to make those windows. Borrowing a trick that some Lego Cathedral builders use - I used a different, gigantic wheel, and it looks much closer to what I wanted:

    Baroque Palace [MOC]

    If you don't build it in real bricks - I'd like to do it. I would love a Louvre to go with my Musee d'Orsay.

    MOC: Train Station - the Musee d'Orsay in Paris

    Thank you everyone. Hello KringlesBricks - I do plan on adding more details to the interior to try to refine it. Turn the angles that hold up the roof into arches. Apply tile to the platforms Arrival/Destination Board Interior Lampposts Platform clocks plus (try) to make a large clock on far wall. Track Number Signs Stairs leading from the pedestrian bridge Railroad Ties But I don't have enough grays right now... or tans ... or windows ... oh gawd I'm so low on bricks.

    MOC: Train Station - the Musee d'Orsay in Paris

    Thank you very much everyone. Lightning: It really is my first Lego creation since I came out of my "No Lego Dark Age" BUT I had built a model of this building before out of plastic, basswood, and cardstock for a model railroad. I really like that building. I enjoyed adding the StarWars minifig goofiness too. Nightfall - I edited the original post so it includes a link to the Flickr album, which can be reached here: Dazz - "Starting small" is GREAT advice. I got a little obsessed with this building for my trains, but I'm not going to build a MOC this big for a while. I'm running low on space. Thanks again everyone.
  9. Hello All, I'm a new AFOL, new member to these forums, my first post - a lot of firsts. My first MOC is the Musee d'Orsay in Paris, which was originally a train station before they converted it to an art museum. Sorry for the poor picture quality but the train station is very large - 7 feet long and more than 3 feet wide. *EDIT* As requested - link to Flickr for some higher-res images. *UPDATE:* The "wagon wheel" placeholder for the tower window has been replaced by something much closer to the intended look:
