    so for two years I've been watching a you tuber know has jangbricks and well being a lego/ megablcks guy myself I took it under my wing to build something even megablcks would have to do a double take at. so after spending about 4k on sets and blocks I've built a 19ftx19ft moc with a lot of hours and work my thumbs to the bone, and some of it is still WIP but its something I haven't seen on here much so I'll take the first step into this realm of bricks.

    so this is my farm/training grounds the red and white building is a HQ for the city where a pair of wasp are engagement with either infantry or a vehicle of some kind haven't built out from that area yet.

    [​IMG]

    another angle of the same area only you can make out a few of the units on the ground.

    [​IMG]

    more of the HQ as it is with the ONI flood/forerunner reseach center which is the white building at the end of the table, and a vehicle repair bay next to it, the yellow buildings are one barracks under construction, and the other a vehicle depot.

    [​IMG]

    sorry for the mess/ image being out of focus. but here is a side view of the HQ and depot with a warthog, and spade on the road is a wolverine a warthog, and a pair of scorpions, and the blue white is the local police station.

    now the mess is just spare parts and WIP pieces. the towers have been added on too since these photos were taken, and the book case is something I've removed since then now the white building close to the bottom is the local hospital.

    [​IMG]

    now this area is one im moving around a lot the Call Of Duty house's aren't staying in the spots, I like the idea of something chasing down a group of jack rabbits and a few getting taken out at a choke point.

    [​IMG]

    now this is something of still getting parts for its a section of the comical distracts. its so far got a hair salon, a restaurant, bar, and pizza place, I do have a toy store the has a lot of battle damage but I'm still not happy with it. and yes those are CQC Spartans in the ally ways.

    and then their this beast I've been working on which is a pain to build because when I started on it I didn't have enough Intel of the ship to do much so here's my civilian evac craft.

    some of those sets are from the 90s so their aged well, and the bad news is mega can't send me replacement parts for sets that old.

    foxleader is there someone or some place that is willing to allow you to store some stuff so you don't have to pick what stays or goes?

    well I'm hoping it all fits I've done some moving of one spot and so far it fits well, just cross your figures it all fits,

    BTW I'd like to add a gas station into it but I have no idea what a halo themed station would look like I've looked around and still can't find one if anyone has an idea of what one would look like please let me know.

    on another note most of covenant army is now in a every small box, because I guess mega doesn't do covenant only sets, which I wished they'd do because the unsc right now out numbers them seven to one lol.

    okay bad news the civilian transport I built, no longer has an engine section fell off bounced off table and landed on the floor... good news is I'm rebuilding it and trying to stop that from happening again.

    news update that engine section fell off again this time rolled off the table and split into six large pieces and a twelve little ones... needless to say I'm rebuilding the whole engine and its mounting point due to this set back hope to have it rebuilt in the next day or two.

    a space ship gas station or on for cars?
    ill try to draw up something for you or 3d modeling, depending.
    (for some reason modeling is easier than drawing for me)

    okay I've found this conpect art but it looks like a UNSC outpost pump.

    images?q=tbn:ANd9GcTERLDutJgtS62QxgMV-DvNqBmG5a543_X3XL9Ve3o26-7fgOhZ9g.jpg

    now if anyone can make it look like a civilian gas pump that would help out a lot.

    plus I've found this moc which I might try and build it myself, its got a new Mombasa look to it.

    I would say make the round tank larger and add a spot to pay, then it would be mostly complete

    foxleader sorry for not getting back to you sooner. my idea sort of just turned into a blob. but it was basically a normal gas station top thing with gas pumps being attached to a large round tank.
    if you actually want to see my embarrassingly bad render of it then tell me.

    well got another two tables set up and moved more of the moc so far no real damage has been done, just mad that my local Wal-Mart is so far behind I'm having to go to target and paying three to four bucks more for the newer sets. plus does anyone know if the halo 2 level turf and its other new mondosa level tie into the network in ODST by any chance?

    Nope but using the non remastered top veiw of the city and the place the covenant super carrier is you could get a good guess.

    no what I mean is on one of the maps there's a 3 on a door which by logical layout of the map it should sit in the map of ODST some how do too each door lead to a city block or section.
