Small School
Based on a real building in my town that was built in the early 1900s and was an actual school.
About this creation

Well folks, this one has been in the works for awhile now...mostly because I didn't have a roof, but that's been solved now as you can see. A couple blocks away from where I live is a building that was a high school ages ago, and I've always thought it was a really cool building.



Because the NMRA show encourages people to build landmarks from their area, I thought it would be great to model that building...but I ran into problems. The first problem I encountered was that I apparently had fewer narrow red bricks that I thought I had, so adding another story was out of the question. Then I found out I didn't have very many windows, but fortunate for me, a Toys 'R' Us was going out of business and had 3 Doc Ock sets for 50% off. The windows in those sets worked great! Then I had a lack of black slopes and had to wait 2 months before I could order a bunch from Lego Direct. Also, the shape of the roof is slightly different from that of the original and doesn't have the "ornate" brick work going around it. I did this since, a. I didn't have enough red to do the job, and b. I certainly didn't have enough of the inverted corner slopes to get the shape of the roof either.



In the future, I would really like to make a nearly identical copy of that building. As it stands now, I still want to get a flag pole and bike rack in before the show. In the mean time, I hope you like what I've come up with so far!

   Here's the interior. Sorry for the bad shot. The 4 classrooms all have doors, which can't be seen in the pic. Also, note the kid with the dunce cap. hehe

   The back of the school. I apparently forgot to put the roof back on...oopsies.

   Here, you can see the playground, complete with see-saws, swingset and merry-go-round. All of them work. I should get crackin' on a slide now.

   The school bus is on it's way to drop the children off, much to their dismay.

   It's mystery meat for lunch today. Can you blame him?

   The trays are essentially 2x3 plates. The plate on top of them is a small radar dish turned upside down with a clip piece attached as the "mystery meat." Add the mug, and it's complete. :)

Excellent job on the school. It definitely looks like the real thing. I also like the ghostbusters ambulance in the front. ;)
