Medieval Street Scene shelf ornament . Built for the bookshelf in my office at work. . It's been a bit of a dry year so far. What with buying a house and also working through some of my backlog of sets to build, I haven't had/made much time for MOCs. Something I've wanted to build for ages though is a little medieval street scene to go on my bookshelf at work. Over a couple of weekends in August I finally made this happen, so here it is. Despite superficial similarities this actually wasn't at all inspired by the official Medieval Market Village. It's more based on a few ideas from unfinished MOCs (or discarded features of finished MOCs). I almost exclusively used 'old' parts and colours since this will live in my office and I didn't want to deplete my 'new' part collection too much. It ended up being a little bigger than initially intended - 38 studs long when closed, 67 when open (including overhang). Not that I mind! On to the photos... As you can see here the two buildings of the MOC fold closed - obviously the main photo above has them opened out. I'm not sure how I'll display it at work. Here are a few shots of The Dragon's Den - a smithy and adjoining watchtower, complete with blacksmith Julia (kind of an Ultima reference for those who care). Panning across the shared courtyard, with a sample of Julia's wares in the first photo. The Lion's Tail - fine bows and crossbows, run by the brothers Wolfe (my clumsy explanation for lion shields and wolf flag!): The rear view and obligatory bird's-eye view: Time for some interior shots, starting with Julia's smithy and tower: The view from the front door through the smithy proper: Above the forge: Working our way up the tower, the top of which lifts off for access to the bedroom on the top floor: And into The Lion's Tail, where one of the Wolfe brothers is looking to negotiate the sale of one of his crossbows. If I hadn't plonked a stool in the middle of the main shop floor these two might have been able to seal their deal upstairs. Finally a shot of the courtyard, complete with the other Wolfe and their little hand-cart. I'm inordinately proud of this cart, mostly because I managed to build it using only 9 pieces. Thanks for looking! Hopefully I'll have some more to upload soon...
