This build is a Neo Fabuland Dock and Ferry.
My current project is a large display that I will be exhibiting at Brickvention 2020 exploring something I am calling ‘Neo Fabuland’, the idea of employing Fabuland as a visual style, in much the same way that Neo-Classic Space looks to Classic Space as a set of design conventions. You can find out more about my goals for Neo Fabuland here if you are interested.
I have several builds for this display in progress and this is the seventh one that I am revealing.
First and foremost I wanted to take the level of detail up above the simplified forms of the original Fabuland sets (those sets were made for young builders after all). Unlike my first build, Edward’s Fishing Hut, this build is not based on an original Fabuland set but instead imagines a working dock with ticket office, covered seating, stonework dock and steps with a wooden boardwalk. It also includes a ferry.
This building was actually the second one I started building after Edward’s Fishing Hut however it is one of the ones that have taken me the longest to complete.
The build features my take on Neo Fabuland windows, namely brick-built windows with vinyl cut sticker pane details mimicking the style of Fabuland windows.
Let me know what you think!
