About this creation
Before I totally dismantle my building of the Sweet store..., I decided to finish parts of it off and take some extra photos.
Sadly my camera is on up the creek without a paddle (hopefully get a new one for Xmas :D) so sorry for the quality of some pictures… and the building is only taking up space and collecting dust, so it is time for it to go…
It was originally built for the Frechen show in Germany, early 2006 (at the time parts of it was not complete).
The size of it is due to the fact we were driving for several hours and it needed to fit ‘snuggly’ into a large container.
The building consists of a sweet store, café, and a book store (I needed something to use part of my collection of books for ;)). On the top level is where the owners of the building and their family lives. The style behind that (and sadly a rushed one due to time) is to kind of look like a renovated/refurbished warehouse… It contains 3 bed rooms, bathroom, kitchen, lounge room with children’s loft and a library on the mezzanine floor.
I have never done a Tudor style building before and building the style with the limited amount of sizes that the light yellow brick comes in, made it interesting to build ;) – But I think it looks ok?.
The building is not a replica of any other building, just my own plans… I had fun with the sweet store as I love colours and tried to use as many as possible (of course I have obtained some new colours since then! ;))…
Well, I think that pretty much sums it up… Thanks for reading!
P.S. there are 3 pages other than the main link already shown: Page 2
This is a one-of-a-kind creation you have here.
I don't know which sets you started out with to get all of those amazing girly colors and shapes, but you did well.
The overall look is clean and realistic, and the level of detail is astounding.
I would love to have a buildign like this,a nd to minifig scale, too !!!
I think this is an excellent building moc. Good use of stud and studless areas. I love the fact that you were able to capture both the childlike atmosphere of the candy store and the warmth of the rest of the building. Good work with the detail and piece use. Keep up the excellent work!
