Wild West diorama of Kingstown, year 1866. Minifig scale.
About this creation
After almost 6 months delay, I can finally present you all with the MegaMOC 2013; The Wild West diorama of Kingstown.
The diorama was first presented as a cooperation of 3 members from HispaLUG, in November 2013 in Madrid. -But these first photos you see here, are from a smaller exposition close to Bilbao, in April 2014, -and thus only show MY contributions to the layout.
Anyway I扉e included a few photos from the expo in Madrid too, at the end of this presentation.
First, let愀 start off with some close-up photos as seen from a minifigs point of view, to get into the right mood and western atmosphere...
Now, some pictures of the groups of buildings I made.
Admittedly a couple of stickers are missing here. (Something went wrong with the printer and document, and at the end there wasnt time to do a new sheet). What you see here is the saloon, the white General Store, Wung Li愀 Laundry and a storrage building.
And now, some general overview photos, so that you get an idea of the organisation of the diorama.
The shown diorama meassures 12x3 baseplates. Add to that the tracks for the train.
The train is 8-wide, and is powered by two PF train motors in the luggage waggon (the one just after the tender of the loco)
The following photos are from the Madrid Expo, where the MOC was first presented.
It was configured as a double diorama; On one side you have the "Desert" area; goldmine canyon with trestle-bridge, plains, buffalos and indian camp.
The desert-side meassured 13x2 baseplates.
The excellent canyon with bridge was NOT made by me.
The scene with the indian raid on a group of settlers was set up by my 11yo daugther. Quite scaring the violence the mind of a very peaceful young girl can hold!!!
On the other side, the "Frontier town" part of the diorama, with the soldiers fort and town buildings.
This part meassured 13x3 baseplates.
Each side had it愀 own blue sky backdrop, which was then set up back-to-back, with the trains circling the whole layout.
The other trian is a motorized version of the Lone Ranger set.
Thanks for watching!
Edit; This made it to "Across MOCpages" on May 11th 2014. (Thanks everybody!)
I am working for the Jewish Federation of Greater Toledo and we are honoring some individuals at our Annual Meeting. The theme this year is "Building Blocks for our Future" We are looking for Judaic objects created out of Legos (Noah's Arc, Moses parting the sea, menorah, Jewish Flag). If this is something you might be interested in please email me @ Colette@jewishtoledo.org. Thank you
This is incredible! I love the train and the trestle it's amazing. The town looks fantastic. Especially the hotel ! The horse drawn hearse is my favorite. There is just so much to love a out this. Spectacular !
Beautiful; absolutely beautiful! Everything is really perfectly built; from the accurate buildings, to the landscaping, to the actions and expressions of all the townsfolk. Wow, wow, wow. This is just one of those builds that REALLY makes you wanna see it in person after seeing it here. A super-outstanding job, sir! Congrats on such an incredible build! 5/5! :-)
My God, an old time American Kid's dream come true and in 3 dimensions! Incredible! Awesome! Stupendous! When I was a little kid my two favorites were: THE LONE RANGER and HOPALONG CASSIDY! You have created in LEGO a world in which they could live and exist! I am speechless!
My final comment is I wish I were there to see it in person!
That is outstanding! Every little detail is fully realized. I love the mud ruts on the ground and especially love the fact that the undertaker is next door to the doctor (THAT'S just convenient!) The church hill and tree are spectacular. And who doesn't love a bridge? Completely awesome work!
