About this creation


This is a MOC based on a british style semi detached house which were built in mass in the suburbs of towns and cities between the 1920s and even into the 1950s. These have been built in a variety of styles with different elements such as all brick, half cladded, full cladded, curved bays and box shaped etc. There are many other combinations and appearances. I mainly built it this way to try and create the bay window. I am reasonably happy with the way it turned out. It is modular and each floor can be taken apart separately. Each room is detailed based on a 1940s timescale. These houses are built to such a high standard, most of them still look great now but I wanted a more 'traditional' look.

Comments welcome!

Beautiful build. The shape and colour of the exterior is great and the front entrance is well designed as is the bay window. The interior reflects the period well with details such as the gold Art Deco lamp the floor patterns and the light blue kitchen units which were so typical of that time. That milk float looks great too. The drainpipe can look smoother by using pin joiner tubes (part no. 75335) joined with friction pins (part no. 2780) and a 1/2 pin in the top (part no. 4274) or you can use 3mm rigid hoses for a narrower look. Keep up the good work!

Quoting Andy Price Wow! I love this! Reminds me so much of the British between-war semi detached! My aunt and uncle live in one! As a Brit in the US, this was very nostalgic for me. I think I may have to build a similar one!
Thank you, I look forward to seeing it if you put the picks up!

There are so many ways this could have been done as there is alot of styles about. To be honest in retrospect i would of liked to have made it bigger and not restricted the size to a baseplate and a half. Im probably going to make a fully detached house in a bigger setting from a similar time period soon!

Pretty much spot on, my favourite bit is the front door.

Wonderful work. Just stunning with all those mini figures and the milk float. How about doing a similar house for the other side? That way you would have two semi-detached houses together.

Absolutely brilliant! Love the sash windows, really makes it look authentic. And that milk float is hilarious and reminds me of a Commer van. Very nice build indeed well done :)

This is a truly fantastic Moc, you have got the look just right, I love so many of the features such as the fireplace, the colour of the kitchen and the flooring. The bay window is superb. My favourite moc for a long time. The time it must have taken is clear, and you have really taken the trouble to show this in your photos. Well done .

Beautifully built and observed. The only thing missing is the microscopic third bedroom...
