A few days ago, I made a decision. I've tried to build big houses, buildings and trains and have never been satisfied. I and new pieces and colors doesn't match and when I am collecting 12v trains and buildings and was a kid in the 80s it was actually a pretty easy decision: My mocs will look as they are taken from a LEGO catalogue from 1982-86. So, here is my first try. The brand new 7833 Shell terminal from 1984! It's still only build digitally, but I think I'm going to buy the pieces to build it in real, too! Any ideas and thoughts are welcome. Be mercyful :-) http://tydje.se/lego/7833/7833-2.jpg http://tydje.se/lego/7833/7833-3.jpg
MOC: Quality Hammers & Tools I had an idea of creating a advertising sign with a Lego Rosie the Riveter/MC Hammer mashup (please don't ask why) and I had to then create a building to support it. It's a Track-side Freight Station for Quality Hammers & Tools, Inc. It has brick-built sliding doors, a rear loading bay, a wooden covered set of access stairs to the second floor and a new (to me at least) design for a worn out roof. Here's the roof detail (so many plates!) I had seen a commercial product for a scale railway building and it had an effective looking wooden covered access stairs so I decided to see if I could recreate it in Lego. Here's the rear loading bay and a close up of the source inspiration for the entire building. Whole lotta Rosie!

Indexed by Moderator Here's a MOC for you to enjoy. It's loosely modelled on a northern England Signal Box that is now disused - the only difference was that on the original the stairs were wooden and open and here I made them out of bricks and semi-enclosed them with a retaining wall. As a concession to 2012 I upgraded the communication systems to include a Wireless dish. And the northern England Railway system runs completely on steaming cups of hot tea served in a yellow mug. And here's some MOC rolling stock passing in front of it. I hope you enjoy it and would appreciate any suggestions for improvement.
