pedrotrainshedro's Buildings and Facades

These have been slowly popping up on Flickr over the past few weeks - some photos show complete buildings, others appear to be just facades for a train layout. They all look to be roughly Cafe Corner scale to me, and there are some good ideas here.

Police Precint

I've had this creation by Nathaniel Brill bookmarked for quite awhile and only now have gotten around to posting this. Put simply, it's awesome. It's clean and solid, and captures that old style architecture not seen too often nowadays. I'm thoroughly jealous of his collection of dark red bricks, and equally content for their good use. I think what also made this so successful was the angle of the shot, it's usually not easy to take good photos, but this turned out excellent. This MOC could easily be a set for TLC.

Keep it up Mr. Brill!

Red and Tan Apartments

Tan Apartment
I've been working on my town lately and thought I should add them here. The brown building is nothing new, only used to supplement my red and tan apartments which were both built in the previous two months or so. Both have interiors, so I hope you enjoy them!

More pictures can be found in this set:


P.S. I apologize for my absence, life has been busy, so that is obviously priority one. :)

Click through to the images to see the furnished interior - it's a furniture store, complete with customers.

A Townhouse From GG parts

from's flickr photostream

The builder decided to try making a modular townhouse from only the parts in the Green Grocer set. I'd say they succeeded - and I can't believe they did it without using sand green for the facade!

Cafe Corner Group

Had a go at the figures from Cafe Corner (not finished - just for fun).


I couldn't sleep last night - thought I'd have a go at creating an avatar. I'm thinking of doing all the figures from the modular sets.

Georgian Style Town House

Mad physicist does it again, and this time it isn't a vehicle, nor a boat, and not even a jet aircraft. He's going back to his British ''High Street''—a project he's been working on for the past couple of years.

This build is excellent on so many levels. Let's start with the exterior. Rather than going with the modular size of 16x32 or 32x32, Ralph made two buildings each with a size of 24x32. As with most London Town houses, Ralph adds in his description, some buildings are ''more or less'' exactly identical, so instead of making two of the same thing, he decided to have one renovated—complete with scaffolding, a dumpster, and a portaloo!" It is something new that brings about a whole new inspiration to build in the CC standard.

The interior is nothing below average either. As with all of his CC style buildings, Ralph manages to squeeze in realistic features such as a stairs, tiled floors, couches, sinks, tables, and the like. It really makes the model come together, rather than an empty shell or hastily done interior that viewers see all too often. I'm guilty of it, and this compels me to take my time, and go about building in a steady manner.

So thanks, Ralph! There is no doubt in my mind we are all looking forward to your next building. Keep up the great work!

Cafe Corner Block

Constructed by Brickshelf member, safiati, this well built city block incorporates many nice colors not usually associated with this style of building. The details thrown into this build are really nice and makes this quite an inspiration, especially for someone like me who is hesitant in using the brighter spectrum of colors for CC buildings. My only suggestion would be to make the roof entirely black, but that easily could have been a part shortage, so it's no big deal. Well done and keep it up!

Welcome to the Market!

This crisp looking creation was created by ToT-LUG, over at Flickr, and features quite the interior. With a meat counter, check-out lane, and clean floor space, this MOC is simple, yet not over cluttered. My only recommendation is to clean up the front awning, as it looks a bit jagged. Nevertheless, keep the CC buildings coming!

A quick picture of that interior:

Café Corner sold out on S@H Europe

Today is a dark day in the history of Brick Town Talk. Café Corner, the one and only, now comes up as Sold Out on Shop @ Home in Europe (I don't know about other parts of the world). Could this be the end of this marvelous set's successfull production life? The end of an era?

Public Library

Name of Model: Public library
Created by: Space2310
Found at:

Here's another minifig-scale town masterpiece. It's suburban, but still in the Cafe Corner standard. The column capitals are spectacular, and the textures for the trim and roof look even better. Then there's the inside - the library is actually fully furnished with bookshelves!

Justice Palace

Flickr user Tavernellos does it again, with this "Justice Palace" featuring expertly crafted architecture, from the entrance archway to the overhangs among the lower windows. From the park benches, to the flower beds, and even to the small grating along the roof, this MOC displays the proper time that went into it. Anybody who has seen his builds before will quickly want to see more. Keep it up!
