    MOC: Theo's Tailoring

    Thank you! The streetlamp is very flimsy but held up just enough for the pics! I'll be using that technique again! I'll make sure it photo's better next time!

    MOC: Theo's Tailoring

    Cheers @RogerSmith personally I'm most happy with the SNOT work around the pairs of windows on the left hand side middle two floors, it's not seen too well in the photo's but I've used 1x2 round bricks to create a thin window support. Thank you! Thanks @Franzplus The EB admins can link posts to the front page

    MOC: Theo's Tailoring

    It's been a long time coming! I've had the tubing window idea for a while but never got around to implementing it, guess here seems the most fitting! Hopefully I'll acquire some more curved pieces in other colours in the next few years to hopefully make more buildings in this style, glad you like what you've seen! Thanks guys!

    MOC: Theo's Tailoring

    Thank you very much! The interior was probably more fun to put together than the exterior , glad you like the shelving, I made loads of prototypes until I was happy with it! cheers @Kristel ! The picture of the floor is somewhat flattering as it is hiding an unsightly gap which surrounds the column down 2 sides so its not perfect but looks better than in person! The balcony is assembled as a complete piece across the 3 bays, I just used 1x2 trans clear plates overlapping between the 2x2 turntables so it looks somewhat opaque. The plates go right into the column supports. Thanks @peedeejay Appreciate it @carebear the lamppost was a last minute addition, I had originally hoped to put the black plant pieces into a window construction but it didn't work out. Least they made it in the model somewhere!

    MOC: Theo's Tailoring

    Hello all. I've recently just completed my latest building - Theo's tailoring. It's an Art Nouveau influenced building housing a tailors. It's taken about 2 months in all to put together and I've incorporated many elements of the time. Sadly not quite as weird as some real life examples I've come across but hopefully I'll be able to recreate them too someday! Onto the pics; You can view them at my Flickr here if you wish: https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Happy to answer any comments or questions on the way its been constructed! Cheers!

    [MOC] Belle ├ępoche Modular building

    Lovely work! Nice use of some older pieces too. I especially like the roofwork, is that a plow piece?

    Thanks @LEGO Train 12 Volts I had to come up with some scenery once I'd finished the carriage, its probably more hidden than I intended! Always! Thanks! Thank you very much guys!

    A very good recreation, I particularly like the ground floor window detailing, well done!

    MOC:Teapot Junction

    Thanks @LegoModularFan I can't take too much credit for the path style as been round for years. Breaks up the monotony of 2x2 tiles though! Camomile! Cheers @Kristel Glad you like the small details, I spend too long trying to put touches on I've not done before! Thanks guys!

    MOC:Teapot Junction

    Thank you @DodgeDude5498 Cheers @Ravelino It wouldn't be much to look at in terms of an interior, its an old signal box so the upstairs would be filled with levers. I suppose I could of made a kitchen downstairs but maybe next time! As for what else you can get apart from tea you can get 'afternoon tea' - how else better could I explain it than point to the wikipedia article here Thanks @Pdaitabird @Fenghuang0296! And dogs! Now there is a crossover idea, not sure how successful it'd be though

    MOC:Teapot Junction

    Hello fellow EB members Here I have made a Tearoom which has been converted from a former signal box and railway carriage still moored at the station platform. A flimsy excuse to make a railway carriage which has been on my to do list for quite some time. Tearooms and very popular and common in the UK and you can get more than just tea! Anyway a few pics and the link to flickr; The usual link to flickr: here Enjoy!

    MOC: Arrivals Hall IDLEBRICK AIRPORT

    Thank you @LEGO Train 12 Volts! I'd forgotten about that display at the shop with the corner pieces! Cheers @meliander Maybe I'll do another scene of an airport someday to show where they go to next! I used the 'tooth' piece, I think it started in the mixels line a while ago. I got a ton of them from my local PAB wall. Thank you @bricksboy If only it could of been tan/green land I would of preferred it but I'm happy with the effect!

    MOC: Arrivals Hall IDLEBRICK AIRPORT

    Thanks @gotoAndLego @Retro @Man with a hat @peedeejay ! The world map was inspired by one from Haneda Airport in Japan that I saw on an old pic. The hockey sticks were a last minute addition, sadly not the most stable but I think they work quite well here! Thank you @Brickvergnugen @Darkdragon I'm pleased you like all the small touches!
  14. I've always found something interesting about airport architecture from the mid-century and have wanted to do some other parts of an airport since my first class lounge a few years ago as seen here https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/26143957214/in/dateposted-public/ so I guess this is something of a follow up. It was all originally centered around the baggage carousel which went through several revisions. I went with a circular one which I think were quite rare from all the source material I looked at. I included a shop, information desk and toilets between the columns for some interest all based on a 60's style. I've used various patterns and mid-century elements in the structure walls and ceiling. No one single airport was the inspiration but a mix of many. I started this project just before a recent trip to NYC of which I visited the TWA terminal, If I'd started it after my trip my ambitions may of gotten the better of me! :D What an inspiring sight it was though! 4 images in all this time; You can find them on my flickr is if so prefer here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Regards

    [MOC] Once upon a book

    Very well done, the shop facade although one colour has plenty of texture to make it interesting. Keep up the good work!
