"Magic happens outside your comfort zone". For the past 12 months, my MOC designs were centred around iconic vehicles. With this project, I wanted to attempt new unfamiliar territory, One being a MOC building and the other a collaboration with a fellow MOC designer. After pondering over the idea for a while, I came across an art illustration of a vintage service station at one of our local farmer's markets which is the inspiration for this project. I approached Jan a fellow MOC designer who has an amazing talent to design vintage cars in 8 stud wide scale, to collaborate with me on this project by designing all the vehicles, while I could keep my full attention on the design of The Service Station.
Here is the outcome of my first building submission and first collaboration on LEGO Ideas. We present to you The Vintage Service Station.
To create Buildings and structures with theme-related minifigures that are built-in scale to accommodate the new 8-stud wide-scale vehicles which are designed to seat your minifigures side by side.
The Vintage Service Station was designed in scale to accommodate the new 8 stud wide vehicles that were introduced by LEGO in early 2020. The building and vehicles were designed with play and display in mind to cater for the interest of both young and old. The Service Station comes with a family sedan, Vintage Hod Rod and Tow truck specifically designed to fit in with the specific time period. The Service Station also has playable features such as a functional built-in Car lift and a Garage door that can open and close with ease.
