Complete Pet Shop Street
Two more narrow houses completing my little block around the Pet Shop – plus road with tram tracks.
About this creation
First some full views:

(By the way, these photos are hosted on Flickr – click here for the set. That should reduce the load on MOCpages' image server a bit...)

A cut-off brook – good thing that's no real water. ;)

Fisherman

At the time I built this, the plan was to have the water run towards the back. According to the current plans, though, this will have to change once more...

Looking down the street:

Down 1

Down 2

Lets have some closer looks on the street:

Street view 1

Notice that I modified the new recycling container truck (4206) a little – it's now got a crane which makes more sense than having a forklift following it around everywhere...

Street view 2

Street view 3

Street view 5

A subway entrance – wouldn't it be silly not to make use of the height? :)

Subway entrance 1

Subway entrance 2

Subway entrance 3

A shop for souvenirs and odds and ends in one of the new houses:

Street view 6

And a travel agency at the corner:

Street view 7

Street view 8

Before we get inside, let's look at the new houses again:

New corner house 1

New corner house 2

Back side

Inside the travel agency:

Interior 1 floor 1 a

Interior 1 floor 1 b

Upper floor: An apartment, here's the living room...

Interior 1 floor 2 a

...with kitchen corner:

Interior 1 floor 2 b

And above that the bedroom and bathroom:

Interior 1 floor 3

The shop for souvenirs (picture postcards outside) and odds and ends – puppets of astronauts and mummies seem to be selling well...

Interior 2 floor 1

On the floor above, we see a psychiatrist's secretary:

Interior 2 floor 2

And one set of stairs higher, the psychiatrist is talking to a patient.

Interior 2 floor 3

(Would you believe me if I told you that using this two-sided head for the psychiatrist was no accident but meant to show that he'd rather run away screeming? No? You're right. :) )

And here's the interior of the betting office – the green copy of the Pet Shop – that was still empty last time:

Interior 3 a

Whoops, the betting office's computer crashed and all the monitors are showing a bluescreen instead of live results and odds from sports events around the world – and the customers are quite irate.

(Disclaimer: I'm not saying that's a typical behavior for bettors. But you can run into violent a**holes anywhere.)

I don't think kicking a crashed computer will help anything...

Interior 3 b




And here are a few photos from during the building process:

At this earlier stage the water was still – or already – flowing towards the front.

Quoting Yorgo Toprakcioglu If it is possible can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEEAAAAASSSSEEEE send me the plan of this street or some kind of instruction or guide on hows to build this.
Well, I never made any instructions or proper plans for this (nor de I really know what it cost); however, Konstantin made instructions for some of the buildings (with only minor differences) which he's selling at http://shop.konze.org/ – he made them from the photos with only little additional input needed from me, so you could try this too. :)

Quoting Jason Jones Please tell me how and which program you have used for your custom decals?
I used CorelDraw. (Basically, any program that lets you easily specify a size e.g. as 16x32 mm should do.) And printed on old sticker sheets that were originally meant for VHS tapes because I got a lot of them left. :)

Awesome street, and excellent rear of the buildings. I find that the rear of most modular buildings is forgotten, and am very happy to see such a well made rear. By the way, how did you make the vehicles stay still on the incline? Brilliant creation!

Quoting Csabo . The airport sign on the corner building is from the 6392 set, right? I recognized it immediately, it was my first LEGO set ever.
Yes. I figured that since I won't build an airport in my city, I could use it here.
Quoting JS Can How long did it take you to do this?
Quoting August . How long did this take you to build?
I don't really know. It's been sitting on the table for months – and that's just since the previous house on the left was completed –, but there has been many a week where I didn't build anything or just a few minutes on a detail that had come into my mind. There were evenings where I spent hours and hardly made any progress, and evenings where it went along nicely...
Quoting Eivind Primotenori Absolutely brilliant. I love your design of the details. How did you plan this work?
Well, I let the basic idea and the overall look grow in my mind, did a few sketches, calculated the incline (so it would align to the studs at top and bottom) and the ground height I need for each house, tried a few things with bricks (e.g. the curve at the corner), and then "just built it", creating and changing details as I went along; sometimes knowing what I wanted as interiors beforehand, sometimes not. Also throwing those calculations out the window when I decided to add the green Pet Shop copy, and so the road doesn't align to studs but had a 2-plate gap to be filled SNOTed in another direction...

That is totally great, mate. I love the S.N.O.T. work with the road, that was genius! Excellent building. I love the way the MOC slopes downward, throughout the MOC, that must have been a real challenge for you. I real enjoyed viewing all of the details inside your marvelous buildings. Great work, once again. I love this MOC. Oh yes, I have ONE question if you would be so kind to answer, How long did this take you to build? Ravishingly beuatiful work.
