EDIT: Here is the Revival



Hey all,
I thought I’d share my concept at County Crossing with you all for this month’s contest. I’ve wanted to do this for a long time. Here is why. The Institute’s items look new. So does The Brotherhood and vault items look new too. As others, I’m sure. It’s been two hundred years can’t the settlers have newer looking things by now too. My friend Rowdy has an announcement.

Hey bean!
This is Rowdy, let me razz your berries. The Atom Cats are starting a restoration service called "Atom Cats Revival." Dig it! Here are some of things planned.

We’ll have a diner if you need a blanket.
We’ll have a wig chop if you are a bundie or need a fuzzy duck
Restored autos, including 4 door chariots for back seat bingo
We even have rag tops
MOTORCYCLES TOO!!!
A Showroom. Just keep your greasy mitts of the paint and me.
Parts dept
Restoration area
Housing
And so much more!

Don’t be L-seven. This place is going to be antsville so agitate the gravel! Oh, bring me some cigs or you can put an egg in your shoe and beat it!

Okay! Thanks for that Rowdy. That’s the word from the bird but I have no idea what she said, lol. She also told me she has been singing a lot and would like to bake a biscuit someday. To me, that was a big tickle and I asked what singing has to do with cooking. She looked at me funny. Then laughed. She then tells me I’m a flutter bum and wanted some apple butter. Where can I get apple butter in the wasteland?

But anyway, this build is subject to many changes. I’ve done this in my head for a long time. But until I see it for real, I don’t know what direction it will go. These pictures are laying a foundation so I can see what I’m up against. Dropped in a couple of cars too. They do exceptional work, don’t they?

Comm and caravan.

Building on right covers that old shack. This area is very uneven. Needed to raise foundation to cover highest points. Very much a WIP.

Hey bean!
Rowdy here. Just thought I’d drop a snap of my sales office. We rebuild that nearly gone house. We’ve been restoring a few chariots too. When you get here, you’ll see all kinds of classy chassis. We will be opening towards the end of this month so burn rubber and see what’s buzzin’, cuzzin’.

Sweet, did you shrink the bus?
All the vehicles in those shots I shrank to 10%. Atom cats is building miniatures too! You cant see in these pics but I used a motorcycle as the base for the kitchen island. Thanks for taking the time to comment.

Very Nice work with the motorcycle, though it looks a bit like one misplaced nuka-cola might overthrow its equilibrium.
And NDQ is not the only one wanting to watch CryBaby....

Hi, thank you for your comment.
I agree. Pretend there are gyroscopes in the tabletop (like the motorcycle) that always keep them perfectly upright.

I was going to Rube Goldburg some bracing. But whoever built the motorcycle in the first place didn't include a kick stand. The bike magically stands up on its own. People overlook that. So, they can also overlook that I didn't include bracing or the kickstand.

Towards the end of this build I was having a lot of trouble with my computer. It can't handle this large of a build. But this build is small compared to others build sizes.

There were a lot of things I would have liked to do extra. But I had to stop somewhere (because of the computer).

Keep in mind there are a lot of things in this game unrealistic.

It wasn't meant as criticism and I am sorry if it sounded that way.
It was more me hinting, that I would probably be the person, who misplaces the cola or just puts her elbow on it .... and baam chaos:blush

I'm sorry, I didn't take that as criticism. You are right. I stood there looking at that for a long time trying to decide if I should brace that or not. I didn't because the motorcycle wasn't braced.
You never know what the judges will count off for. Maybe that will come to bite me in the ass, who knows. What I do know is this is my last build with this much detail. My computer just can't handle it.

It's a date then. When should I pick you up? I hope you're more like Wanda than Hatchet-Face
Pshh I always thought Hatchet-Face was an underrated Character, at least she got to play the saxophone, which is far less square then a triangle 0:D
