This is my first "real" MOC. It's an additional car for 10194 Emerald Night.
About this creation
As said in the introduction, this is my first "real" MOC. Meaning, my first high-quality MOC where I bought pieces specifically to make it. I thought that an extra Emerald Night car would be a good place to start.
As you can see, I designed my own window layout. Some of the other unofficial Emerald Night cars use the same 1x4x3 windows used in the official car, and they simply subtract 4 or 6 of them. I decided to get more original and complex. Another difference between this and the official car is that there are 4 air filters on the roof instead of 3. In a kitchen, there is likely to be much smoke and other gasses from cooking.
Listed from left to right; There is a counter with storage for utensils underneath, a brick-built sink, a refrigerator, an oven and stove, and shelf's for glass cups.
Some minifigures payed much money to get a ride on this train. In the first class car, there are dining tables for them. But this isn't entirely useful if they don't have food. I decided to make a kitchen car, where food will be prepared for the passengers.
I modified the part at the bottom, to make it bisymmetrical. I also did this on my First-class car.
Here, you can see the car in the train, between the locomotive and the passenger car. I placed it in front, so that the ride isn't as noisy for the first-class passengers. It looks pretty good with the rest of the train. In this photo, the car is slightly different than it is in the other photos, as I don't have enough pieces to make two cars at the same time.
This is the realistic photo, which is meant to be taken from the perspective of a minifigure, and make it look full-scale. It isn't perfect.
This started as a model on Lego Digital Designer. At first, It was supposed to be baggage and kitchen in a single car. I later decided to make it specifically a kitchen car. The final model was made in real life.
