Our good friend Gábor Horváth has recently finished a new Lego MOC: Watchman’s House – in the wonderful style of an old hungarin railway building: Interview and images.
Gábor Horváth was one exhibitor at the Zusammengebaut 2015. And we are glad, that he is continuing to build great MOCs.
His new creation: Watchman’s House. Thankfully, Gábor has sent us some nice images and he also answered some questions.
This is a lovely setting – did you have a special building in mind?
I’m glad you like my house! Yes, it’s a special building, it is in the style of the old hungarian raliway buildings. Here you can see a real one, which was nicely restored: Look at the bench in front of the house, it is on my diorama, too, because it’s very typical.
Have you planned your MOC with a digital designer, first?
Well, nowadays I often use LDD and real bricks on a parallel way. It means, that I start the building with real bricks, then I copy the construction into LDD, I change things there and copy the changings with real bricks, LDD again and real bricks again, etc. This house was made by this method, too. I don’t know why, but I’m not able to create only with LDD. My digital constructions are often not stable enough and look not so cool in real life, as on the computer. So I guess it’s better to use this parallel method. But for example my new RC bus was made only with real bricks.
And how long do you need to finish a build like the Watchman’s House?
It took approx two month, including a lot of other things, for example school, or waiting for the orders.
Will you enlarge this setting in the future and add more buildings?
Unfortunately I had to take apart it, because I need the elements to create new things. But in the future I would like to use the basement (brickbuilt road and 16×16 bright green plates near it) for buildings. So if I will be rich 😉 and have all of my creations together, it will be possible to build a long street.
Thank you, Gábor. Und please brick on!
