Sundays at Chez Bella
My creation was inspired by The Grand Trunk Pub located in beautiful downtown Detroit.
About this creation
The Pub is in the building that once housed the ticket office of The Grand Trunk Railroad. The structure dates back to 1879 and was originally the Traub Bros. & Co. Jewelry Store. The Grand Trunk Railroad began using the building as a ticket office in 1910. Legend has it that Harry Houdini had a magic shop in the lower level. The Metropole Hotel turned it in to a bar in 1935 and it has remained a pub ever since. The Grand Trunk Pub is a Michigan Historical Landmark and a truly unique place. Brief history compliments of the Grand Truck's website.

Since I did not have the parts to duplicate the building, I created my own version and called it The Chez Bella. What a better way to enjoy casual and fine dining than on a warm Sunday afternoon.

Enjoy the view.

Quoting Kermunklin the Giant Evil House Head Wow. Very good café. Great attention to detail. Since you live in Detroit, have you ever considered putting Robocop into one of your creations? There is actually a third party custom shop that makes Robocop accessories for minifigs...just a thought.
I don't think so. My creations are relatively peaceful. Thanks for your nice compliment anyway.

Quoting R.Skittle _ Excellent facade! I like the tile work and the life in the scene. Very well done!
Thank you. I will have to look for more interesting facades in my area for inspiration. But, the building must have an interesting history.

Quoting A M Man, you are prolific! I'm loving this!
Thanks. Prolific? I'm not sure, but I try to build with a little variety in mind. I'm actually slow compared to other builders.

Quoting Nicole Brick ;-D It's a very nice facade and I like very much your version. Flooring and awning inclination are perfect! Ciao, Bella !
Thanks Nicole. The awning was not easy to do and the floor was changed several times. I wanted stripe and circle to work well together.

I see you read my comment. I guess I'm not alone on this.

Quoting Gerald F. Sweet build! I like the pattern of the textured wall detail. Plus the two windows on the side offer a more open touch. The mix of red, tan, grey and white truly tops off the bella too!
Great overview comment. I look for part usage and color in other builder creations too.

Quoting cyberfrank 2010 I like your version better, very cool gates with the antennas, great color scheme!

I really like how MocPages messed up my picture on the Home Page under Everyones Creations. I've seen this happen to other builders too. It is not only happening there but when I go to view and comment on their creations. The pictures are messed up and it makes it very difficult to see what is going on. I don't know if it's my internet connection or my computer. Everything uploaded correctly. So what is up?
