    I started this thread for those of us that are into Harry Potter MOC’s. Here’s my latest build – Ollivanders for Diagon Alley. Similar to Gringotts, I detailed both the outside and the inside, and made the roof removable so you can see inside when we display.

    I’ve been curiousabout what you’ve been working on especially after the flurry of buildings you made for the train show. The outside and the inside both look great. Was Ollivander’s partly displayed before?

    I’ve found it hard to show both the outside and the inside of a building at a show unless I leave a side of the building completely open or part of the roof off.

    I had a building labeled “Ollivanders” at Greenberg’s, but it was just one of my Hogsmeade buildings (with nothing inside) “re-branded” to give us more buildings for Diagon Alley.

    The roof of the new one is in 2 halves with both removable, so I can pull one or both off to make it more “display friendly”!

    I tried doing that dragon once … it looked like a rabid seagull. Duncan’s is much better!

    The first MOC that I took to a convention, (Brickfest VA ’06,) was loosely based on a historical clock tower in Jim Thorpe, PA for a competition called “Building the Trust.” I cannibalized part of it to make the clock tower that I currently have. I recently exhumed the remaining chunks and I am wondering what to do with them. Any thoughts on a Harry Potter application? Here are photos of the original:

    Kings Cross Station has a clock tower, but you’d have to swap out the blue for something closer to the photo, or to your Kings Cross building color scheme.

    The blue clock tower evolved into the clock tower that was at Greenberg’s in the fall. I am wondering about the rest of the building.

    Now that I see that photo you posted, I remember that I also have the London Tower Bridge set that was modified into two towers with tunnels that allow trains to run through the bottom.
