    MOC: Mediterranean town square

    Thanks, I tend to build from what I have. I think I'd find it a bit expensive to design something virtually and then have the source all the pieces, I would probably not bother. I guess this keeps me working with some limitations.

    [MOC] Las Fuentes - Mexican Modular Building

    Very interesting style of architecture I'm not familiar with. Really like the colour palette, thanks for sharing!

    MOC: Mediterranean town square

    Yeah I've seen them in several walls, some finally useful small pieces to fix those pesky gaps in my cups! Thanks, glad you like it! Yeah perhaps I could of detailed a little more on the green, if anything in this build I tried to make it more rustic - I still have to learn how to make things seems weathered! The archway is made of flexi tube and standard 'bar with clips' in black. Glad you liked the colour combinations too! Thank you, I don't build my mocs in LDD or any software so its made up as I go along. I suppose its an update of sorts of an old moc of mine from a few years ago - Piazza Maria Some of the ideas I used then have been used here too but with maybe a bit of emphasis on newer building techniques I've learned since then. Thank you, I think the grey pattern is common in former areas of ancient greek/roman influence. Cheers @lightningtiger!

    MOC: Mediterranean town square

    Thank you, hopefully they don't fall into someones dinner! Yeah Italy was definitely a prominent influence on me for this build! Thank you! Yeah if anything I found it difficult to make it more rustic! There are not too many unusual bricks here, most of the fun was combining colour combinations! Thanks, the steps were just something to break up the monotony of flat plaza. Glad you liked it!

    MOC: Mediterranean town square

    Hello users of EB! Here I present my latest build, a Mediterranean town square with a trio of intertwined buildings. A restaurant, a shop and various apartments fill the scene. I can't say its any one particular European style, more a hybrid mix of styles. Anyway onto the pics; They can also all be view on my flickr stream here Andy comments or queries about techniques are welcome. Regards!

    MOC: Bank

    Thank you very much! Cheers! The interior was one of the hardest things to do as there are very few pictures I could find of a bank from this era on a smaller scale. Sure is! I wanted to do something a little 'darker' as most of my builds recently have been quite bright and happy by comparison. Suppose banks tend to be quite formal and lack flair! Yeah grey can be overwhelming but I've tried to mix it up with some colour here and there where appropriate. I find buildings from this era tend to mostly one colour on the stonework, I've used white and tan quite a lot recently so figured grey deserved its time. The examples from round where I live tend to be grey now as the whiter limestone on the facade has turned a dirty grey with age! I'm glad you like the interior, I deliberately picked a brighter scheme for a contrast!

    MOC: Bank

    Hello all. I've just recently completed a new bank as its been over a decade since my last one https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/5873042040/in/dateposted-public/ - hopefully it shows I've improved - at least in my photography skills! Its still of an art-deco style like the former but with some more geometric touches and a sharper finish. It was inspired by the Bank of Ireland building in Belfast which was built in the late 1920s and still stands today; I've also included an interior for the ground floor which is not based on any bank interior in particular as the material from that time is very hard to come by for a smaller bank. There is an elevator, patterned floor, teller booths and a relief on the wall to capture the period. As usual you can find them on my flickr stream here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Regards!

    [MOC] Grand Hotel Kudelma

    Very impressive work. The architecture style is unique I've not seen it anywhere else other than Finland! I really like like the variety of heights, window shapes and the mix of turrets. The original hotel reminds me a bit of Neuschwanstein, whereas this a lot shorter in height I feel it's grown 'outover' in an organic sort of way. The archways and stairs compliment the lowest floor very nicely. Great job! Bet it was a pain to move for photgraphs!

    MOC: Village Grocers

    Thank you! Cheers @lightningtiger I'm glad you noticed. I've looked at a LOT of Lemax building prior to and whilst building this. They were a big inspiration. Thank you! Yeah, a lot of the Lemax buildings have high pitched roofs so I guess that is what I was going for here. I think it works well on a narrow building but would end up being huge on anything wider!

    [MOC] New York-ish corner house with fire escape

    Nice job, I particularly like the variety in the window details between floors. Well done!

    [MOC] Somewhere over the french streets

    Really nice street scene, the building with the angled corner is my favorite. Keep up the good work!

    MOC: Village Grocers

    Hello all! I've made my own grocery store after being inspired by the real Lego modular version and also small display holiday village models that are usually exaggerated in colours/shapes/signage and more. In this case I chose not to light it but in the future maybe! I've tried a couple of techniques that were new to me here, such as the windows made up of trans plates and also a deep sloped roof. Anyway, a couple of pictures this time; They can also be viewed at different resolution and all my other creations on my flickr page here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Cheers!
