Buildings on Every Corner

It’s a good chance we have posted something from Mr. Lopes before, but recently, he posted an update of his town with all sorts of cool buildings and models. Take a stroll past the fire station, through the train yards, or to Al’s diner. Or maybe you’re after a tattoo or want to play some pool? Let’s just say urban decay never looked so good.
Looks real, doesn’t it?

The New and Old

I’m breaking my rule of not posting digital models…but this layout was just too good to pass up. The design of the buildings are very realistic and no doubt probably took a LONG time to build, but it was worth it. Scrunched in between the two buildings on the right is lgorlando’s barbershop.

We All Need Robot Insurance

This was posted quite awhile ago on Flickr, but up until recently did I finally got around to posting it. Anyways, please check this building out. The amount of facade techniques on this thing is enough to speak for itself.

As it says in Rob’s description, Old Glory Insurance was the first insurance company to offer insurance against robot attacks. I never knew this. I’ve always just thought of it just as a joke, partly due to the Saturday Night Live skit (who Rob so graciously pays tribute to.)

Hide your medicine!

Now Just Build It!

I normally don’t post “digital” creations on here, but this was just too good to pass up. I really hope this gets built at some point. That dark red building and stone walkway that loops up around behind it is very cool. It’s a nice little neighborhood scene. Great job!

Times Gone By

The Central Fire Station in Rochester, Minnesota was built in 1898 and used all the way up until 1930. Unfortunately it was torn down, but this incredible model by (RTN LNA) keeps the building alive in both spirit and design. Truly an incredible structure. Check out his MOCpages for more pictures and a comparison to the real building. Hope you all enjoy it!
