ReplicaOfLife posted a topic in LEGO TownHi, I'm in the process of finally building my MOD of 10246 Detective's Office. The MOD will include three full buildings. Two are MODs on the DO; the third is an original design. I planned the entire thing in LDD starting in late February and ending at the end of May. I collected the required pieces in June. I will document the building process in this thread, so if you're interested be sure to check in regularly, or follow this topic . I'll try to update it every 1-2 days, but it may take a bit longer sometime. I won't post pictures of the LDD model to keep this thread more interesting. I have some unique ideas for the MOD I haven't seen done before, and I don't want to give it all up right away. Every step will be documented in a new post, I will put direct links to those posts here: Part 1: All the parts and first floor of the Detective's Office (this post, see below) Part 2: Detective's Office, second floor Part 3: Detective's Office, third floor and roof Part 4: Barber Shop, Ground Floor Part 5: Barber Shop, Second Floor Part 6: Barber Shop, Third Floor Part 7: Newspaper Agent MOC, Ground Floor Part 8: Newspaper Agent, Second Floor Part 9: Newspaper Agent, Third and Fourth Floor (final update!) I'll also update the 'Last update:' tag of this thread whenever I post an update. Be sure to check out my Flickr account, as I'll be posting some more pics there that aren't on here occasionally (usually detail shots and different angles) Part 1: All the parts and first floor of the Detective's Office The MOC uses pieces from 2 10246 Detective's Office, one 31025 Mountain Hut plus another ~1000 pieces. The total piece count will be just a few bricks shy of 5000 bricks. Loose parts and my original DO. The Mountain Hut and the seond DO (most of it in bags). That one I bought used off Ebay. This explains its sorry state - this is just how the groundfloor looked coming out of the box. All the parts are there, though. The Detective's Office will become a standalone 16 wide building in my MOC First walls are going up. The ground floor got expanded. With help of Rainbow Construction, Inc. almost the entire baseplate gets used. Finished ground floor. Now contains a small bar at the back. I'll propably add a small booth or two in the corner, as it feels kinda empty. Would have to move the dart board to the other side of the bar. What do you think? At the back there's now a stair leading up to the second floor The stairwell also provides protection from the elements for the backdoor. Artsy shot through the window to finish this first part of my building. Read on in the second update Right now I'm already well into building the second floor, so be sure to check in again soon Hope you'll enjoy this! Roger
