And here it is... Finally after a loooong time the 6382 Fire Station. And yes, I am working on an animation with it. Duration at the moment 60 seconds... fingers crossed.

Moving shutters...

A long time ago, about last century I started working on the 6382 Fire Station. And got stuck on the shutters. That is, until recently. While telling Eline a bed time story about Lego firemen I wondered if I finally could this going. After boring countless people with here is a first pass. It still needs some more debugging and I am not convinced the bottom part should move like it does at the moment. I think it should move at the same constant speed as the top part.

Anyway, here it is:

3314 - Police Unit

This set is from the Shell Football collection as well. Just the hooligan is missing... or is he already in the van?

3311 - Television Tower

This lovely set comes from the Shell promotion sets that were released in 1998. I did most of the work back then and only now modified this set to use the macro's. But here it is (for the moment, as it is still WIP))

6367 - Semi Truck

Not quite sure why they call it a semi truck, but it looks great I think. Again a model we never had and made from the peeron description. The stickers were made in Inkscape from originals I got from Sofie.




6613 - Telephone Booth

And here is the phone booth with the correct minifig!!!

6362 - Post Office

I started on the model many years ago and last year I made the Post Office logo in Inkscape. This week I added the sign on the post boxes them selves. It is still considered WIP as the little van still needs its stickers. And the minifig of course...

Again, another classic set, as other people have pointed out who review this set: every Lego town needs a post office!!!
