Thumbs up Communications Console Desk & Room - Sneak Preview

I thought while I was making this shipping container I'd get all tech'd up and make a communications room, the scale would have to be fitting to the microman smart body and of course be similar to the playmobile furniture i'd been using, so knowing what i have to build and figuring out the parts and size is a challenge.

I set to work on the chair and the main desk, I started out this build because I couldnt win the Playmobil Airport Console Desk on ebay, having twice lost out on those I decided to build my own.

This is a sneak preview and is NOT the final communications room, however the console desk is my final design that i'll be using.
Hope you guys like it

Rich

Yeah, that looks great already !

A couple of questions :

Are you going to cover the top with tiles, or are you going to leave the studs out in the open ?

And how do you feel about the mix of old and new grey ? For the console that works okay; the lines between the bricks already create the look and feel of separate panels enclosing the machine, and it's okay if those panels have slightly different colors. But isn't it a bit annoying that the uniformity of color is broken for things like the back support of the chair and for the large surfaces of that container of the other thread ?

Smile Questions: Answered.

I'll answer your first question. Yes I will cover the top at some stage, As I mentioned it's a W.I.P or sneak preview and by no means finished.

At some stage during my builds I substitute bricks I dont have with a closest colour match to see what it looks like. In some cases I leave things as they are, with the colour differences on the container it could be used to similate wear and tear on the container or I could just go and replace all the new bricks with old pieces and vice versa.

I guess its more time vs money. The two colours are Light Bluish Grey and Light Grey, I prefer to use the light grey because its a more natural colour and more widely available.

The other issue is that sometimes sellers on bricklink have different listed greys than the official lego shop, in the floor tiles they are listed as light stone grey which i got from Lego's official pick a brick, there is no Light Stone Grey on bricklink.

I definately might go back and replace some of the parts at a later date, and as I mentioned above its by no means a complete finished project yet, I have quite way to go before its finished.

Thanks for the feedback
