  1. (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!
  2. [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!
  3. [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!
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. [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!
  7. [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!
  8. [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.
  9. [MOC] Legoland Movie Theater

    Looks like you've captured the look of the real life building very well, I like very much the lighting under the canopy.
  10. MOC:Haymarket

    Thanks lightningtiger! Thank you Romanos! Cheers Venunder, I've tried to use similar amounts of colour and varying the floors just like the modular series. Thanks guys! Appreciate it!
  11. MOC:Haymarket

    Thank you! Thanks! I thought it might make it a little more interesting having to come up with a 'half' floor for the basement, not something I've done before. Thanks guys! Cheers! Not much to see down the alley unfortunately, the building in the corner is symmetrical so just the same as whats on the left. Thank you all very much for your kind words! Thank you! I can't take too much credit for the dustbin, I think I've seen it somewhere quite a while ago, but I've had a hard job finding a design to top it. So thanks to whomever made it first! Cheers greg, the corner building was what I made first, I was originally going to stop there but can't usually stop myself and added more. I am probably pleased the most with it. Thank you! My goal was to try and make each floor a bit different to any other and also try out a few more roof designs, although relatively simple in execution. I was debating whether to have a market or a fountain but a previous square I made had a market so went with the latter. It was very enjoyable to experiment with so much texture and colour! Thank you, I am flattered you hold my MOCs in such high regard. The colour tastes I don't expect to be for everyone, but after building the first two and deciding to put them into a bigger scene the third and last building (far right) I didn't want to be a forgettable Much like the modular buildings I was trying to get around 7+ colours per floor, I did try a more realistic grey to divide the floors but seemed to take some of the punch out of the effect I was going for. I usually try for a more realistic build but went with a open mind here - probably why it took so long to finish!
  12. MOC:Haymarket

    Hi fellow EB members Here is a MOC I've just recently completed called 'Haymarket'. It's taken several months to complete and was originally just going to be the building on the far right, but as I had too many ideas I carried on with building another and it made sense to put them into a bigger feature. I've taken elements of many styles of European architecture rather than focus on one style relating to a particular country. Anyway on with the pics, only 3; If you wish to view them on flickr the link is here https://www.flickr.com/photos/52656812@N04/ Any comments or feedback welcomed. Cheers!
  13. [MOC] Gas station, art deco style

    Excellent build! If its Art-Deco I'm there, even more so for a gas station I very much like the colour choices, the mixing up of shapes yet continuing the colour lines horizontally. Also looks great lit up! Smashing work!
  14. MOC Modular round park square

    Lovely build! I really like the choice of colours, I like the use of the 1x1 round bricks to make the borders of the planters. It'd also look great in reddish brown when they eventually make a 1x1 round plate in that colour. Well done!
  15. BOOTBLACK STREET

    I really like this. Good varied mix of realistic colours and texture. I especially.like the use of the trans windshield piece for the roof and door canopy. Well done!
