About this creation
Part of the MegaMOC 2012.

The bigger house on the left is still open for "definition". I simply dont know what do do with it. Surgestions welcome. It is supposed to be apartments with some kind of business on the ground floor.



The blocks have no interior decoration, and the side of the brown block is non-existent. (As with the cinema).
I did however make a back part, as the spectator will be able to *just* get a glimpse of it. Have to keep the illusion complete, right?!


The brown block continues in the same style as the City Hotel, which I liked very much.


Last photos is of the entrance to the barbershop, with the sign still waiting for its sticker. Is the name "B-sharp" too used already¿?


Critisism is welcome, but bear in mind that the level of details and finish of this block is deliberatly reduced, as it will occupy the "worst" corner of the layout, and thus have the least influence on the overall impression. They are mere cameos and background buildings.

I really like the brown building - the front looks great! I actually did look at a Lowell Sphere while building it, but I definitely could improve those corners. Thanks for the advice!

the brown building is magnificent, but, the other one seems a bit too small, it s more obvious with the fig at the window, it s not bad, but, it s below that high quality bar that you set up for yourself, lol!

I like the way the facade continues across the brown stone. Nice work. ~Dave

Very polished - lovely building. Nothing wrong with a cheesy name for a barbershop - I think it may be the law.... :-)

I like how you build your "back ground" houses for "worst" corners... lol Simplicity, sobriety: I do think this is precisely why both are awesome. They really fit in real life. And all the details you think of... Great!!!

I think "B Sharp" sounds more like a music store but I understand why you would name it that. It reminded me of the old Joe Jackson song "Look Sharp!"...hmmmmm, that would be a good name for a Barber Shop too! It's always great to have one of your creations show up in my email, I enjoy looking at them!

Outstanding as always! Can't wait to see the final layout you are creating. Hopefully some local sign will say "Henrik Hoexbroe's latest Lego creations now on display" so I can see it IRL. I don't think I will be that lucky ;) As for the larger building's function: Back-end cheap-a#% copy shop (under surveillance from the cops/feds ;) )

Henrick, looks great! I like how you mixed up the color scheme, that kind of stuff is what really makes a town look authentic. Chris

Magnificent. And this is your idea of a low resolution back drop? Ha! It's better than most front line builds out there. It shows the same attention to detail that is evident in all your automobiles. When all of your sub-assemblies are put in one place and displayed together, then we are all in for a rare treat! As for the big brown building, I think it looks like a pharmacy, or a corner drug store. The tan barber shop is very nice. The barber pole out in front will make it unmistakable from any distance. And of course, your photos are all very well done. You illustrate your techniques and editorial decisions perfectly. Attack!

"Yo this is the barbershop, you know the rules. No fighting, no cussing, no cutting, no blooding, now sit yo'self down and act like you got some sense."

Perhaps a bank on the ground floor and also an apartment building?
