Royville, France, 1967 . MegaMOC 2011. Fictitious french town "Royville", around the year 1967. . This diorama was prepared for the 5th annual HispaLUG gathering in Madrid, December 2011. Unfortunatly I did not make it to the exhibition because of work, so these photos are from a test-setup in my basement. *** Art-deco petrol station: Note that Exxon-Mobile is called "Esso" in Europe. This building was the first one in the project, dating back as far as May 2011, and currently represents the longest-living MOC of mine. (This photo can be viewed in high resolution!) (This photo can be viewed in high resolution!) Although the Art-deco style originally started in France in he ī20s, the petrol-station is distinctively american ī50s-ī60s. *** Cachin Motors: This is basically a CitroŽn specialist, although the skilled workshop will do ANYthing. The showroom with the strange-looking DS Break version. The nice and orderly back-yard with workshop. (This photo can be viewed in high resolution!) As mentioned; the guys workign here are very skilled, and hereīs a little something they have been working on in their spare time; Oh yeah! Happiness... *** Hotel Chat Noir: (This photo can be viewed in high resolution!) The likeness is striking... Two guests hurry away, as the famous chef is known to be rather full of himself, and can drag on and on and on with his tales, once he has "tried" the brandy (spposedly for cooking) too many times... (This photo can be viewed in high resolution!) Notice how I cut a road baseplate in half, in order to get more posible combinations. (Please dont hate me ;-) *** Rue de la Gare: (This photo can be viewed in high resolution!) Just another day at the office, for this working girl... Lots of entertainment in this street. -I am of course referring to the clown and the barrel-organ... *** Train station: Okay, I ran out of LBG tiles... (This photo can be viewed in high resolution!) Station seen from street-side; *** Trains: All the rolling stock is 7-wide, and exact 0-scale. SNCF 131; (RC+PF) (This photo can be viewed in high resolution!) X-3800 "Picasso" railbus; (RC+PF) A VIDEO exist with the trains running around; *** Other random shots: *** Overview shots: (This photo can be viewed in high resolution!) (This photo can be viewed in high resolution!) *** Technical information about the diorama: Plan: The MOC is 4 meters long and 1,2 meters wide. The decoration counts some 70 minifigs. 19 historic vehicles; Ford Capri MK1 4 CitroŽn DS 20 (civil, police, cabriolet and stationwaggon) 2 CitroŽn 2CV (civil and forugonette) 2 CitroŽn H type Morris Minor Traveller VW T1 Scania Vabis bus Mercedes Benz O3250 bus Chevrolet BelAir Renault tow truck Renault moving van Small truck (Cachin Motors. No specific prototype) Small tractor (Loaded on a train freight waggon) -and finally the Happy Days/American Grafitti inspired hotrod from Cachin Motors! The names Royville, Cachin and Chat Noir is of course in honour of the model railroad masters Astrid Cachin and Marcel Darphinīs fantastic 0-scale layouts. That is all! *** 7th January 2012 (approx.); On "Across MOCpages". 16th November 2012; MOTD. Yay! :-)
