Platform 9¾

For the Brothers Brick Microscale Magic competition | Big Category

 

 

I had a lot of fun creating this one. I built it to go along with my previous microscale Hogwarts Express (With minor updates to the coaches, as well as changing the color to red instead of dark red) I started the build with the tracks, which I made a little complicated for myself (trying to snot that white line was a pain since I had to build 1x4 brackets upside down as well as leave the tracks a tad below the station) either way I think the effect paid off.

 

As always with these models, they tend to look so much better in real life. I wish you could see it. Oh well. I built this pretty solid in order to leave it as a display piece for a while. Always good to have a few display pieces to show curious friends and family so you're not left saying: "I promise I create amazing things out of this mess of toys!" and "No I didn't make that modular, I just like it on display!" instead you can say: "Check this awesome build out that I made with my very own mind, and without following instructions!!" ("oh, you're not impressed? oh okay, cool, yeah, me either, kinda childish, yeh, nah, just a hobby, sure, heh, okay let's go talk about college, and jobs and stuff. cool.")

 

 

[I also noticed that the Hogwarts Express is a VERY popular subject. Whoops. Well good on everyone actually, more builds the merrier. Hopefully I'll have another build out before the contest ends. And you better believe it's going to be another Hogwarts Express 😉]
