  1. Firehouse "Engine Company 5" - GBHQ/2 by ER0L This build started some years ago when there was a certain “GBHQ hype” (Ideas sets, official set, plus quite a few nice MOCs). I just wanted to see if a facade with a SNOT windows section could be built to get narrower window bars which for me are an important aspect of the facade. It proved to be possible, however, the build was far from being finished at that time. Fortunately I didn't scrap it though it took a lot of dust over the years. Now that there's another Route 66 layout section to be built (the actual shape of the building being a requirement for that), and now that there’s a renewed pumper engine I took the chance to finish it and to turn it into an actual firehouse again (though the Ecto-1 fits in, too). (Btw. there’s a building fault at the facade which I have seen only after shooting the pictures - does anybody recognize it?) One of the main features of the building is the upside down ceiling: Firehouse - Ceiling by ER0L By using an upside down baseplate as a ceiling several problems are solved at once - you can fix the L&S lighting elements easily, you get a (more or less) smooth floor surface without tiling, and you need relatively few parts. The old 1x2 bricks with cable cutout do a great job here. This is something to be further developed, I guess. Built in ceiling: Firehouse - Detail by ER0L As usual for this type of building there's no baseplate underneath but a 5-layer foundation matching the height of SNOT road plus sidewalk - this allows to strictly separate buildings and sidewalks which provides more variability: Firehouse - Detail by ER0L Furthermore I built a small diorama together with the olden 21-wide Painted Lady from 2013 (see just to see how the firehouse will fit into a downtown surrounding - the modular character of the layout allows quick combinations: Firehouse & Painted Lady (R66 mini diorama) by ER0L By doing so I used the opportunity to update the Painted Lady which also had taken a lot of dust in the meantime. Now there’s a proper chimney plus an exterior light. I also reduced the depth of the building due to layout requirements. Last but not least a night shot of the mini diorama (all the lights being Lego): Firehouse & Painted Lady (R66 mini diorama) - Night Scene by ER0L Thanks for looking!
