First large MOC - Any thoughts?

Post by azaksir »

I'm still working on the small details and gags. But the main room is almost done.
The hardest part was the back side of the room that's on a different stud alignment.

It's roughly 80x60

As it's my first build, i'm wondering if it's good enough to show?

Anything that doesn't look like your 5-yr old built it should be good enough to show.

I like the angles even if it's not a legal connection. Looks great!

ya, it's the only way I could figure out how to connect everything. The walls are all connected, but had to creatively solve the odd angle of the back of the space.

It's definitely good enough to show. It looks awesome!

I don't mind the illegal connections, as its a MOC, and just for you.

Does the floor layout represent a specific place?

ps. If you don't like the illegal connections you could try to replace the bottom level with wedge plates to get a different angle, or you could tile it, etc...

Wow, looks great! I love all the off-angles. Makes it a really interesting build to look at.
This is perfect to show! Just need to throw the figs into that great scene.

Don't get me wrong I like the angles too. I don't have issues with the illegal connections, I'm just saying what others being critical will say.

This was an awesome piece to bring! I'm sorry that I didn't make the connection that it was another VLC build! Woot! Way to represent!


I actually studied this MOC pretty carefully and really liked the small details.

If you're looking to expand for next year - you could build the hallway and Penny's apartment. I was also trying to work out in my mind the placement of Sheldon's Room, Leonard's room and the Bathroom. How great would it be to have a teeny-tiny mini-fig sized periodic table shower curtain in the bathroom?
