  1. [MOC] Modular Tearoom

    I like the way you've done the turret and turret roof. Nothing I've attempted myself. Looks a good technique. I very much like the building on the left, the roofline and awning compliment the building well. I agree with what peedeejay said above about the colour on the side on the building. If another building was next to it you probably wouldn't notice it. The only thing about the building on the right what I'm not as keen on is the use of the yellowish orange colour. The combination with the grey reminds me more of an industrial building interior. I think I've seen the yellowish orange colour work well with white but less so with grey, think it was one of your previous buildings! I like the tearoom interior details very much. Well done!
  2. My Baker

    Impressive scale. Looks like a bakery I'd like to visit!
  3. [MOD] Laundromat Modular 16-wide from Brick Bank

    Very nice work!
  4. MOC: Crown Castle Adventure Golf

    Thanks Littleworlds! I don't tend to go for organic colours very often so I'm glad you like it! Thanks guys, I'm pleased you find it original. I try to come up with ideas that I've not seen before! Thanks you lightningtiger! Thansk greg3 and eliza! It was a fun challenge doing a organic base, I have even more respect for castle themed builders now! Cheers Andy, it was hard to judge how to make the castle, I almost wanted it to look more cartoony and fake, like a real miniature golf course but it probably ended up looking more realistic than expected! Thank you Newtown!
  5. MOC: Crown Castle Adventure Golf

    Hello fellow EB members; Here is my latest creation. Crown Castle Adventure Golf. I've had a mini-golf based MOC on my to-do list for quite some time and this is a decent representation of what I originally sketched out to do. I had a couple of other themed ideas in mind - Inca and pirate themed but went for castle, maybe I'll revisit another theme someday. Being used to building on baseplates and nice square corners this was somewhat of a challenge with a organic shaped base and some rockwork which I can't confess to being particularly good at. It was fun to give it a go though! Although its essentially a castle it's not meant to be taken seriously (which is why I've posted in the town forum), although I've seen some people take adventure golf very seriously! Anyway on with the pictures, 3 in all; You can find the same images at flickr if you prefer here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Enjoy!
  6. (MOC) Constitution Bar WIP

    The upper two floors blend in pretty well with the ground floor by use of the 'brick' 1x2's. Although I can't help but think it might need some colour in the transition between the top of the lowest floor to the middle one. You've done it effectively by using that dark tan line below the windows to break up the two shades of grey. Anyway, keep up the good work, I'm looking forward to seeing the interiors and also what you come up with for a roof design. Cheers!
  7. MOC - Modular Hardware Store

    Nice colour combinations, art deco styling is always a winner with me!
  8. (MOC) Constitution Bar WIP

    Looking good so far! I very much like the tall windows capped off with the new inset arch piece in black (you beat me to it!) I really like the inset door and arches used. Not sure what else you've got planned but it looks like a grand ground floor so I'd guess you're going to make it tall? Cheers!
  9. [MOC] Edificio Metropolis Madrid

    A very imposing building! Looks like you've captured the likeness very well. In some ways it's hard to appreciate all the details with most of the facade being white but that's representative of the building. In a way it would be great to see similar techniques used from yourself here in another building that's not based necessarily on a real life one. With some colour you're techniques would really stand out! Great job and keep up the good work!
  10. [MOC] Noppe & Co. Brick Store (facade)

    Good call with only building facades. Much easier not having to think about support structure etc. I like it very much, I'd love some sand red. As said I hope a modular in the future can provide us with some! I look forward to see more of your work in a bigger scene. Well done!
  11. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I would doubt they will go down this route of a re-release for all modulars. For people just discovering modulars now of course are disappointed they've missed the boat a decade ago. Someone in 5 years time will be sad they've missed out on the parisian restaurant and would want re-release of that and so on it goes, you can't keep re-releasing forever to humor newcomers. Also for any of the modulars that didn't sell as well (Town hall I believe as one example) might not be very profitable re-releasing if it wasn't even that popular in the first place, but of course if they chose to ignore it and re-release all others than the town hall for example then someone would complain about it not 'completing their set'. Most of the early sets are able to be made using current elements without much noticeable difference, and as many people have proved on EB and also in many of the flickr/moc pages groups there are some awesome custom modularmocs. After 10 years of official inspiration there is plenty to go off for people to make their own. Some people will sadly need to accept that whats gone has gone, it's not the end of the world missing the odd modular - I'm not picking on you jdubbs! :) It's just I've seen so many comments on here and places such as brickset etc wanting re-releases. As for whats next to come I just hope it has a new colour or lots of elements of a rare colour - gold would be very welcome! I'm going to stick my neck out and say........... bookshop possibly with an apartment above. Cheers
  12. MOC: Weekend at the Sea

    I really like this, lots of use of colour, and each building looks different enough from the rest. Looks like it was a lot of fun to build! Nice one!
  13. [MOCs] Swing Carousel/Chair-O-Planes, Drop Tower

    Some really good ideas! It'd be great to see them within a bigger setup with some of the other fairground themed sets. I would have a similar face to those on the drop tower! Well done!
  14. [MOC] Typical Heritage House In my country.

    I find it fascinating to see styles of architecture that are unfamiliar to me. I really like how you included an interior and also that it is a cutaway, I find it easier to appreciate the interior details rather than a modular top down approach. I hope to do something as effective as this to replicate my country's typical dwelling. Great job!
  15. [MOC] - Italian Restaurant - Modular Building

    A very interesting building. I like the interior details, the typical red/white checkerboard clothes for a pizzeria and preparation area caught my eye.
