    [MOC] Joe's Cottage

    Thanks @RosehipDeity Thank you! Since the tomahawk is made of rubber, you can insert it into the hole of the tile round. Thanks a bucng for your kind words @deraven Thank you! Thanks! Thanks! Thanks! I worked a lot on photography to get the best light and the right atmosphere. Thanks a bunch! Thanks! Yes, you are probably right. This often happens with Minifig which are themselves off-scale. Thank you very much my friend! Very appreciated. I love that kind of atmosphere Thanks! Happy to hear that

    [MOC] Joe's Cottage

    Joe's Cottage (and Joe's tow truck) Joe is a lonely guy. He lives in his tan wooden cottage somewhere in the woods. His mates are birds and chickens. He loves driving his tow truck and he always helps people who are in breakdown on their way. My latest creation was inspired by a Japanese model maker who makes little cottages and shacks in the woods. I added few NPU like the speargun as light holder, pistons on the electricity pole, Ninjago hat on the chimney and some other even on the tow truck. I tried to photograph the scene making it alive and warm, it seems to me there is a nice atmosphere due to the light sideways. Take a moment to appreciate all the small details that all add up to this rustic scene. It was very funny building this and even more catching the details to insert via period pictures spotted on the web. Hope you like it!

    [MOC] General Store

    GENERAL STORE: A TIME CAPSULE General Stores were very common in the US back in the 18th and 19th century, especially in rural areas or in small towns. Actually, there are few of them along old nearly-forgotten interstate highways, they are like old treasures to preserve. Their main feature was carrying a general line of merchandise to remote populated places where mobility was limited and a single shop was sufficient to service the entire community. In the early twentieth century general stores often sold gasoline too. My latest diorama represents a classic general store depicted in a sixties scene somewhere in the heart of America with many elements easy to spot back then. Take a moment to appreciate all the small details that all add up to this vintage scene; the rusted pump abandoned on the ground, the phone cab, soft-drink dispenser, the gumball machine and many others. The old white-bearded man sitting in his rocking chair keeps watch carefully who arrives helped by his loyal dog. On the left a little shop for quick repairs equipped with different utensils.All around I added many details like the water tower, the phone box, the gas pump and so on. I’m very satisfied with this creation even if it’s much better live than depicted by a photo. It was very funny building this and even more catching the details to insert via period pictures spotted on the web. Hope you like it!

    Thanks! Steampunkish... Thank you! At the beginning I thought of creating a background, but then I preferred without it, because in this way the carriages are more visible, and you can focus attention on the details. Thanks for your remarks and suggestions. About the 3633 It was completely random, I was looking for something to attach the chest lids and that piece happened to me... I think the wagons have the right height, take a look at the real ones, they are huge seen close to a man. I think the horses are probably too small compared to carts, but I think the overall view is proportionate and pleases the eye (imho). Thank you very much!
