Several factors came together recently to produce this crazy, ostentatious, menacing edifice which I dubbed Venom Security Inc. The hapless citizens of Micropolis are under the mistaken impression that this is just a firm of security experts, but in fact the building houses the thinly-disguised HQ of the Micropolis Secret Service!
The main components of the build were again PAB finds – black 1×2 grille bricks, orange 1×2 bricks (with a few slopes thrown in from a play brick box) and those three big cockpit pieces which I found in the “nearly gone” PAB secret stash at Stratford. They made perfect skylights for the otherwise fairly windowless building.
And then of course there are all the other mad trans-neon-orange greebles everywhere – most of which came from that mixed eBay lot a few days ago. I was able to pick through the boxes and find loads of useful stuff to embellish it with.
Even better, if you turn the lights off and shine a UV torch at the place, it glows menacingly in the dark! Spooky.
I really like this 1/2 block module, and it’s probably one of my favourite Micropolis builds so far.
