Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownThis model is revamped version of set 41134 (Heartlake Performance School) with parts of set 10217 (Diagon Alley) and a heavily modified version of the truck from set 75972 (Dorado Showdown) thrown together to make this classical styled bank. The time-frame is set in the mid to late Roaring Twenties, when gangsters like Al Capone ruled Chicago's speakeasies and bank robbers such as Bonnie & Clyde ran rampant across the USA. (Of course, the law was always at their heels, and eventually justice was served.) This is the fourth version, which is set to replace my Gringotts bank model, which has become a sore spot on my layout as it's just too small. As before, this bank features a fancy entrance with Greek columns going up and creating a balcony on the second and third floors. The model features a detailed interior, and is open-able like a dollhouse to provide access to the inside. Also, the black 1 x 4 brick above the front door should have this BANK print on it. The rear of the bank has a second story fireplace flue. The model is open-able like a dollhouse to provide access to the inside, as you can see by the hinges on this side. Inside the front half and on the lower floor, we have two tellers desk with spots for four customers total. The upper floor features counting desks, along with half of the the money-filled vault. The lower floor on the back half features a staircase to the upper floor, a controlled access point to the behind-the-scenes part of the bank and the bank managers desk. The upper floor features the other half of the vault with the rest of the $14,800 in hundred dollar bills. (I transferred all the green bricks into 1x2 plates, then times by 100 to get that number.) This model was partially inspired by 2019 Overwatch set 75972 (Dorado Shwodown) which I reverse engineered from a picture last week into the front half of the truck seen here. The rear of the truck. The rear double-doors open to stash valuables, the roof section comes off, and the driving compartment seats one mini-figure. Thank you for looking at these models. Any comments, be they helpful, quizzical, or critical are welcome at any time. Thanks again for reading!
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownThis building is inspired by 2011 Harry Potter set 10217 (Diagon Alley), specifically the Borgin and Burkes shop that is technically not on Diagon Alley in the HP universe. (it is instead of a neighboring street where evil wizards / witches dwell) Here is the front of the building. The number "1887" goes on the four studs above the middle second floor windows using printed number tiles. That year was the year the building was built, by the way. The new rear half of the building features a back door and a couple windows. This model will serve as my fictional railroad's headquarters on my town, and as such has a miniature model railroad inside. (just for the heck of it) The building also features a tower, two story fireplace, and staircase to the upper floor. The lack of other interior furnishings is intentional, as I haven't been able to think of a single piece of early to mid 1900's furniture for the offices of the railway president and the accompanying secretary. The building has hinges to allow for it to open up to 90 degrees, but no further due to the wall ornaments being in the way. As usual, the building is locked together by a friction-less Technic pin to allow for easy opening and shutting. The original building from set 10217 has 14 dark green windows I need for a updated train (seen here: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=138020 ), so this building will be built sooner rather than later, probably next month, if possible. (I really don't know, as I'm juggling about five possible next-builds at the moment. All will be built eventually, but whatever's next I don't know for sure!) Comments, Questions, and Complaints are always welcome, plus the LDD file for the entire model is available here: http://www.moc-pages.com/user_images/80135/1471631763m.lxf Thanks for viewing! UPDATE 8/19/16: The buildings was an odd number of studs long, which was causing problems. I have since fixed that, and as such the LDD file and pictures have been updated.
Murdoch17 posted a topic in LEGO TownThis is my city of Ironwood, the center of my 4 x 8 feet Trains & Town layout. In this thread are my seven Town buildings, inside and out: Bob's Military Surplus store This building was originally part of set 10217, Diagon Alley, specifically Ollivander's wand Shop. I added a rear to the building and redid the interior to have more of a Military Surplus store look. The store is currently owned by Bob from LEGO Universe, and was finished in late 2014. The shop only opens 90 degrees instead of 180, due to the roof being in the way. Inside we have weapons of various origins, from deep space to the distant past. Upstairs is the clothing section, with several space suits and battle armor on display. Behind the chalkboard though is a secret: a map to a portal to certain other Universe. Bob keeps it hidden, but on rare occasions he lets adventurous souls use it to goo exploring / questing in the dimension he once called home. The rear of the store features the back door. Old House This building was originally the Blacksmith's shop from set 10193, Medieval Market Village released back in 2009. I got it in 2011, near the end of it's production run. It has been turned into my mini-figures house, complete with furnished interior. The inside of the building features a couch, bed and a pot bellied stove. Their is a staircase, which was completely missing in the original set. Here is the rear of the house, continuing the wooden patterns from the front. Saloon This model was inspired by set 79109, Colby City Showdown from the 2013 Lone Ranger theme. I turned the 1 story bank into a 2 story saloon, complete with two lift-away sections to access the inside. The first floor features the bar with old fashioned cash register, and a staircase to more seating on the second floor. The second floor features more seats and a piano. This level was originally supposed to be a game room, filled with pool tables and poker dealers. Unfortunately, the room never happened as the space constraints left too little space to place figures. Tavern This English style tavern was built from set 10193, Medieval Market Village, and expanded by my brother to have an inside staircase and a better chimney. The inside of the model features a Frog on the bar (for no real reason), a inside staircase, and a bunch of seating on the second floor. Their is a crude gumball machine on the second floor at the top of the stairs. This model is like 90% of my buildings: it locks shut when I close it due to a Technic pin. Imperial Bank I took set the Bank from the 2011 Harry Potter LEGO set Diagon Alley (number 10217) and gave it a make over into a more City-like set. First I straightened the columns out, and added a more protected Bank teller area. The vault was shortened width-wise by 1 stud, making it 3 studs thick, (plus the door, of course) to allow it to sit closed next to the teller area. The model was built in 2012 and finished in 2014, and can still fold shut like the stock set model. Here we can see the inside of the bank. I added a second floor to the bank, which is off-limits to the public but is used by Bank staff as offices. Post Office This was my first town building I built way back in 2011. It houses my Post office and features a large bay window. The inside of the model features a work area on the second floor piled high with letters and packages to be sorted. The lower floor features a couple of chairs for waiting customers to sit in, and a counter to add packages being handed over into the computer tracking system. Model Train Club This model houses Iron LUG, the local LEGO Users Group for Ironwood - area residents. It is situated in an old pharmacy that has been renovated into a display area. Inside the model is the Iron LUG LEGO layout, with a train, tracks, and "water". Their is even a control switch to speed up the train. (in reality the train does not move, being set into the 1 stud wide track) This sums up all my current buildings, excluding train related ones. (such as my two passenger stations) A few more models are in the planning stages, such as a town hall, haunted house and fire station, but they won't be done for awhile due to funding issues. Comments, Questions & complaints welcome!
