Baker Street
Welcome to Baker Street, my one hundredth creation to be posted on MOCpages. It's hard to believe it's been fifty MOCs since Einstein's Study, and I hope to see another hundred creations in the future. So, without further ado, I present the personal London home of Sherlock Holmes, the detective, violinist, chemist, and pipe-smoking genius that has captured the intellect of the world for over a century.
About this creation

Please take a moment to watch a minute-and-a-half summary video of the creation.


221 Baker Street, in Conan Doyle's canon, is a two level flat in Westminster, London. Holmes resides in 221b on the second floor, and the landlady, Mrs. Hudson, allegedly lives in 221a on the street level.


In my version, some dastardly crime is taking place right under the great detective's quarters in 221a.


The front half of the bignette overlooks the cobbles of the London street.


But evil always lurks in the rainy streets. Pictured here is none other than Professor James Moriarty, the "organizer of half that is evil and of nearly all that is undetected in this great city."


221a is painted in tan and dark tan, furnished austerely with a wooden chair and a bust of Aristotle.




These villainous men seem to be burying some stash of stolen gold in a tunnel under the floorboards of the lower flat. But this scheme is no match for the deductive prowess of Sherlock Holmes!


221b is painted in dark tan and dark green; rich colors for so colorful a profession as Holmes'. It is furnished with a bear skin rug, Sherlock's own armchair, multiple relics of his past mysteries on the mantlepiece, and his personal desk.


The great detective himself.


And, of course, Dr. John Watson, Holmes' friend and aide who assists him on his many adventures.


From the looks of things, Sherlock is conducting some chemical experiment on his desk. We had better hope that what he spilled on the ground isn't some kind of acid.


The bay window, directly mentioned in Doyle's work, was a fun part of this bignette to build. I had to place a Bricklink order to get all those fames and glass.


The items in the attic were a last minute addition. This part of the structure seemed a little empty without something in the peak of the roof.


All the details in the creation.


And finally, all of the minifigures.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks so much for your reception and kind comments on all of my past MOCs. I appreciate all your support, and I hope to see some of you at Brickworld 2012!

This is really spectacular! All of the little details just amaze me! The figs look amazing and to me are what make this MOC what it is. The color scheme looks really good and just add to the feeling this MOC gives off. The cobbled street is also a very nice touch. Congrats on #100 :D

Wonderful creation Paul. Happy 100th! Beautiful, delicate details, love Holmes' desk and chair, and the cobbled street and absolutely love that dark green-dark tan combo, really must remember that one... Were you at BW this year? I can't remember who I met... I won't make it to BW next year, such a shame would have loved to meet you and have some in depth photography discussions.

When I think of Sherlock Holmes and Baker Street this is exactly how I imagine it! You did an excellent job on both the creation itself and the stopmotion video, from experience I know how difficult it is to make them but you did it perfectly!

Paul...this far exceeds my Baker Street, incredible job! The build is simply brilliant! And the video is great too. So that's what you were telling Max and I about over Skype, very nice. I like the short animations and the screenshots are masterful. Hope this makes across MOCpages, because it's completely worthy to be up there! Extremely well done!

Each detail is carefully placed and very nice to look at. The whole building is very atmospheric, in the photos and in the movie. And you're the first to spraypaint the bowler, haha. This is one thing I'm going to do soon, after I've already painted some minifig parts for my next superhero MOC.

This is very enjoyable to look at. Your attention to detail is immediately apparent and only grows the longer I look. The video was a very nice overview. For such a small space, you really filled it up. I loved the eyecatching details, like the desk and lamp post. I also love the figs, especially Watson. I can tell you put a lot of thought into this.

I must say, that video turned out quite nice (aside from your ridiculously jazzy music choice). Where do I begin? I will start from bottom to top. The tunnel works well with the rest, but the plumbing pipes are what is really clever. Your criminal with the long black hair looks like Jerry Cruncher from a Tale of Two Cities, and the other one looks like Barbossa (no way!). They also work pretty well. The lamp-post is epic, and Moriarty is perfect. I can't believe you cut that tire in half for the bears head, but aside from that, I love 221b. Maybe if it is acid that Sherlock spilled, it could burn through the floor and melt the criminals below into atomic sludge! Maybe that is why he has such a smily smirk on his face! The attic is awesome. Are those cheese wedges supposed to be insulation? Overall, it is awesome.

This is truly magnificent. I'll start off by complimenting your stop motion in the video, for it really is harder than it looks. The build is brilliant. You pack it full of excellent techniques, and it's incredibly clean. Your eye for detail is terrific, and you must have spent a long time making everything just right. From the cobblestones to the pipes and the sewer you didn't skimp on anything. Definitely a masterpiece, great work!

Baker Street Brilliance in a great moc & video! I love the details. I don't know if it's supposed to be a theodolite or a telescope but I love that little piece of scientific instrumentation... so indicative of the time! :)
