WWII French Building - Carentan part 2
This is my 2nd in a series of WWII French village buildings. The destruction of war has had its way with this building. The Whermacht were driven out of the town by artillery and now the GI's are coming through and clearing out the buildings. Instructions are now available on my website: www.brickcitydepot.com

even better than the first one. I like how you did the layers on the roof and the technique that you used for the smashed glass is effective. 10/10

Amazing. Very realistic. I've never been to Europe(or back in time for that matter) but after seeing that I feel like I just went. They are really cool together.

As was your last WWII building, this is great! That open drawer is awesome, but has me puzzled. How did you do it? I loved seeing the two buildings together, and a whole street would be cool, but I know how hard that would be, so no pressure. I know this is a long comment, but one more thing. May I suggest a church? It's always fun to watch different interpretations ofa church. Thanks.

Quoting Nick Pascale I usually dislike violence in any toy form but witnessing how the TOP designers here are showing the negative side of war through LEGO bricks is an interesting way of imparting to the new generation WAR! It's good to see LEGO used as an instructive tool rather then destructive! I looked at this one and it reminded me of a building that was preserved in its destructive form near the Barbizon Plaza in London it is living history right down to the wallpaper! Your furniture strewn about (love the open drawer) shows the UGLINESS of war! Yet you didn't opt for the bloodshed! BRAVO You got your point across in a timely classy fashion! Now a question for you Brian: When a mocpager UPDATES his/her work are those who listed them as their favorites informed of the UPDATE?
Thank you for the kind words. I am not sure about the update thing. I only have a couple of people listed as my favorite and I have never received an update to anything but that doesn't meant anything. I see some people just redo their creation and call it "creation 2.0"

Amazing! Again! Very good job with the interior, especially the matrres, and the artsy part is good. Photoshop is interesting, but, obviously, fakish. Great job again, keep it up! =)

Thanks for all the awesome feedback from everyone. I can't wait get started on the next one. I would love to make a whole city as big as the persian city that I made but these take more pieces and time.

I couldn't IMAGINE anything better. Out of the hundreds of MOCs I've seen on the Pages, none have been very realistic, let alone to this extent! The building looks like it actually saw fighting! I normally wouldn't ask this, but would you mind returning the favor and commenting on my latest post, "Ambush in Saint Lo" (http://mocpages.com/moc.php/253311)? Thanks, Garand

Excellent build. You should attempt to build the building that Anne Frank and her Family were hiding in. I think that'd be really cool. -Lee

If you make a street with it along with more buildings, you could make an animation! They are good these buildings...

  February 24, 2011
Nice work! The interior details and exterior details are both done really well. Something I think would be neat to see in future buildings is damage that crosses over from one building to the next... perhaps a crater or trail of bullet holes that goes from one building to the next.

Well done! I have commented on your original building which I thought hadn't quite felt the impact of war enough. This one is perfect! The broken glass, the sloping roof, and the interior details are exquisite. I also think your photoshop job was great! :)

Ahh, I see I have found a fellow WWII buff! Excellent work and very accurate! I don't know what source you based your creation off of, but if you want some ideas, I would humbly suggest watching the HBO series "Band of Brother" (if your old enough to watch it). They have a very cool battle in Carentan, and I think it might help you out with some more buildings. Either way, you get 5 out of 5 stars from me!

Very nice! The texture here is superb and spot on! Now you just need a couple French partisans to make it complete.

Really neat! I like the heart-shaped hole in the wall and I REALLY like the wooden beams under the tiles. Great work!
