Octan in Space
Octan has gone galactic! This is a small refueling post on a planet you've probably never heard of.

This was on display in the Rockefeller Center Lego store for I LUG NY's showcase in March 2012.

This is a wonderful build, love the details especially the center section, using the round hinges as pipes as well as the surface of the planet. Just superb! Happy New Year!

Quoting Calvin Russ Whoa, That's great how long did it take to build?
About 2 1/2 months
Quoting Sam Hitchen cool! can u put some more pics of the inside plz?
Due to size constraints imposed by the Lego store display cases, this model doesn't have a full interior. To create the illusion of an interior, I built flattened scenery behind the doors. You can see all there is to see in the photos here.

This entire MOC is tight! It is uniform in its quality from top to bottom. You took the time to work every joint, every seam, every angle to near perfection. Most builders would have rushed some small part. It is one of the best examples of deliberate painstaking craftsmanship I have seen in ages. AND it's totally cool. The sand, and the pads...right on. Attack!

Far too much cool to mention here. I 'll pick out my favourite bits. The tan groundwork is some of the best I've seen, great texture! That greebling in the middle is just amazing and the whole scene rocks! This will go down very well in the store I'm sure! Congrats :-)

Thanks everyone!
Quoting Will A. :) Wow. This is so so cool. A great take on a space gas station!!! A good idea, whaat made you think of this?
Octan has always had a special place in my heart, and I mostly build space, so I put the two themes together.
Quoting StoveTop Creator So coooool! I love the octagonal nature of the refueling docks! Is that an Octan Tanker making a delivery? You should do a seperate photo of it. :)
That is indeed an Octan tanker. I have more photos of it here: http://mocpages.com/moc.php/258274 I should probably link to it from this page. Thanks for pointing that out.

Wow! Haven't seen anything from you in a while. A fine return indeed. This thing is an absolute master class in greebling. Love the attention to detail in the tiling in the landing platforms; I noticed that the brick patterns are the same. And if that wasn't enough to leave me slack-jawed, the landscaping is outstanding. Great work.
