A traditional urban fire station. My first large scale MOC since my return from the dark ages.
About this creation
After getting back in to the hobby, I decided to make my first large project a fire station. I had plenty of red bricks and had purchased the newest fire station set, so I figured it was only a natural choice.
My creation is not based on any particular existing building, but I was partially inspired by this building.
A view from the front.
A full shot showing the tower and curb details.
A view from the top. I had initially built a helipad but it just didn't look natural when it was done, so I removed it. The pilot is a holdover.
A close up view showing the door from the tower to the roof.
View of the second floor with the roof removed. Includes sleeping quarters, two offices, and a kitchenette. I am still working on building a full kitchen in the kitchenette area.
Tower and mezzanine level removed to see inside. Staircase goes up to mezzanine level which will serve as a dining hall, and then a small staircase rises up to the second full level.
Second level removed to see garage bay level.
Closer shot of bay level. Washing station shown. I will probably move the washing station to the other side of the support wall and add a receptionist desk, but originally I had the staircase on the back side of the wall, so it's a holdover.
A detail of the inside of the tower and mezzanine level. The staircase leads from the kitchenette area directly to the door to the roof.
An overhead shot of the building with the mezzanine level attached to show how it splits. The inside wall is attached to the building's roof.
Some people wanted a view of the vehicles, so here are a couple. They're not complete, which is why I didn't detail them in the original pics. Here are a few shots, though.
Here is another addendum, some shots of the recently added full kitchen:
