(First off, I want to apologize for these photos: I didn't have an area big enough to handle the four story tall building, so I improvised. It doesn't look very pretty, but it's passable.) I was inspired to create this model from the 2018 Jurassic World set 75930, Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate, with some design cues from set 10228, Haunted House. I made the mansion to replace this other MOC I had made, but don't worry, the other building still exists, it's just empty right now. THE MAD SCIENTIST'S MANSION The dollhouse-style model was built from the set pictures, with the play features removed and opening rear sections added to match the front half. The model also features a round window for letting in moon light in on the mad doctor's experiments, along with lightning rods on top of the house. (for powering his experiments) The rear of the mansion features a back door (perfect for escapes when the locals get feisty about the scientist playing with time travel again!) and the chimney flue. The bottom floor features the living room and dining rooms, while the second floor is the bedroom, study and pipe organ rooms. The third floor features the laboratory for the study of time travel. The rear door to the outside is in this section, while the safe containing the house's title and family paper work is directly above on the second level. This area also has stairs from first to second floors. The left rear quarter features the fireplace and telephone on the first floor and a bed for the second floor's master bedroom. The stairs to the third floor are also on this side. THE WORMWOOD FAMILY AUTOMOBILE The stylish car is heavily modified version of Brick-Link set BL19011 (Vintage Roadster) turned blue. The car model is about 10 studs wide (with a large overhang on each side due to the white fenders on front and rear) and is 36 studs long, front bumper to rear bumper. The car can now seat two mini-figure's in the seating area, and as before feature removable engine cowling sections for a look at the V8 heart of the car. The headlights are now secured more tightly, and the front windscreen glass is now trans-black and not inclined anymore. (it was bugging the heck out of me that it wouldn't stay in place!) The taillights were moved down onto the rear bumper. No real reason for the change, it just seemed like a good idea. THE TIME MACHINE Here is the Scientist's 1920's-period time machine, rebuilt from set 76109 (Quantum Realm Explorers). I fixed the rotating side engines of the original Marvel superheroes set, as these objects are now (mostly) locked in the position shown. THE BRASS AUTOMATON In reality, this is a recolored and modified version of @hachiroku's Iron Giant model. I made it into steampunk colors wth "arching Tesla coils" on the shoulders, and an exhaust steam pipe at the back of the neck, and yes, that is a monocle / targeting computer over the right eye. I am also writing a backstory for the model with inspiration coming from the BIONICLE Generation 1 story-line with the Mata-Nui Robot, the Great Beings and so on. You can see the original model's topic by Hachiroku here, in the sci-fi theme forum. The rear of the robot, with the steam exhaust stack visible. He also has jets in his feet, just like the Iron Giant, but is not self-repairing, unlike his later counterpart. THE END? More may come later, I'm not quite sure on what steampunk thing to build after the robot. As usual, comments, questions and comments are always welcome!
