Sometimes, very late at night, while everyone in the house is sleeping...
i work on the city,
yesterday was such a night,
as i sometimes wonder where i m going to take this,
i stare at some pieces, trying to find solutions, or stories.
i figured, that while i m at it, i might as well add some figs,
for a better perspective,
then, i said, oh, might take a few pics too...
wich led to this...
it s unfinished work, but,
since it s new builds, and they re going to get so much better with interiors,
i tought it would nt spoil it too much!
in the last months, i have spended a lot of time, and took pics,
mostly of my centers, and hotel, but,
i m now coming back to the municipal garage, and recycling plant,
the police, and fire stations will get FULL rebuild treatment as well!
they are shown here, a bit polished,
but, it s total overhaul real soon!
here is the front of the new recycling plant,
orange is it s color code,
too bad my girlfriend s asleep,
since the trucks are in the bedroom,
ah, next time!
the blue building, is the new cargo train freight depot!
i have given it a futuristic look,
and that s not all!
i have searched the net for lego freight depots,
and found none that was futuristicly inclined,
if anyone finds something,
please let me know!
some of you will get what i attempted on writing,
gf, but, it looks more like 6f!
i ll try to fix this!
both new buildings,
from the stations perspective!
the municipal garage s color code is green,
as are all the city s service trucks!
the INDUSTRIAL QUAD
as before, the roofs will slide,
to allow the cranes [both] to acces the buildings interiors,
and they will also serve as storage shelves.
naturally, depots are known for crime elements,
as, who really knows what shipment these containers have inside?
in story context, the police was almost completely wasted,
i intent on using it!
we can see in this pic,
that the modular houses are stored on the depot,
i m not quite done with them,
too bad ali does nt give any news,
i think he would have liked this...
going to GLOBOLOPOLIS?
if so, this red & white bus will take you there,
but, i don t recommend it!
the stations really show their age to me now...
hard work, but, it will be well worth it,
as my new building technique will make them much cleaner!
this is the new back alley between the municipal garage combo,
and freight depot,
i have chosen this new design for many reasons,
but, mainly, for saving space inside the depot,
and the RACES!
those containers are my fav props,
i worked hard to make them scaled, and truck functional,
i m not through with them either, but, at least,
a good part of their purpose is solutioned,
now, good emplacements for the 4 of them.
as this suggests, you can expect the races to be pretty wacky!
the roofs at one point, will get filled with a lot of hazards!
in these 'jam' pics, we can see what i used to make the stunt effects,
when i ll do it seriously, we ll see nothing like that.
i m not sure i reproduced the effect properly,
YOU tell me!
too bad, none of these landing pic ever came out right!
i needed the take, sorry!
now, to finish this with flair!!!
we re currently working on getting road plates my girlfriend and i,
we might get 12!
i need 44!

I got the road plates now, some still missing,
but, it does nt show, I fixed this post s missing pics.
I've always been jealous of how good Cybercity looks! If only mine was as good as yours :P Oh and good news :D I will have some city stuff posted for next friday, so a week from now :D Anyway, another brilliant post ;)
I like it

The third shot down is outstanding, the two buildings really complement each other. I also like the red building in one of the later photos. Have you considered using road-plates or brick walls? looking at this makes me want to build "Town", which doesn't happen too often.
So it seems I wasn't the only person doing multiple updating! A great job full of details as always! I lovedthe bus and the jumping mo-ped! Hey cyber come and see my update of the POLICE DEPARTMENT - after all you inspired it! It has 114 views but no one has yet left me a rating!
P.S. I love the female mini figure composed of 3 of the collectible mini-figures... I am a sucker for a woman with flowers in her hair.
"Oh, where am I going? I'm going to San Fran-cisco gonna wear some flowers in my hair..."
