I only recently discovered Res-Q, a Lego Town subtheme that came out in 1998 and included about 10 sets in total. My first submission on Mecabricks was a set no. 6473 'Res-Q Hovercraft' (https://www.mecabricks.com/en/models/1w2rR4MV28W), and here comes the no. 6479 'Emergency Response Center'—the largest one in the collection.

My favorite aspect is how smart and savory the design is: with less than 500 pieces, Lego designers managed to pack a rather massive building, a variety of vehicles, and an impressive amount of various tools, accessories, and smaller crafts for the Res-Q team of five to handle. The color scheme is lovely, too: dominated by black, yellow, and transparent dark blue to contrast white uniforms. (I used Coast Guard torsos re-colored in white to substitute for those).

One odd detail is that there are only Res-Q team members among the minifigures, but not a single civilian! Imagine a kid who doesn't have any other Lego sets or minifigs yet; the best he can do with that set is stage some training exercise. (See p. 15 in the instruction manual for some hilarious scenes staged by the Lego photographer with Res-Q minifigs rescuing each other!)

The Control Center includes an operator room with a window bay, a helicopter pad and satellite dish on the roof, and a ramped driveway with a harbor for the speedboat. Diving & firemen gear and a variety of general-purpose tools are available on three stands spread across the building.

The largest vehicle is a six-wheeled Tow Truck with two extendable arms and two separate spools with hooks on the string. There are also lockers to carry tools around, and a tank-like cabin accessed through the roof hatch. The truck has a towball socket for a tiny trailer with a dinghy boat on it. Next, there's a speedboat with a stretcher, a small helicopter with another string spool, and a tricycle.

The build is about 95% complete: a few crucial parts were missing, but I managed to substitute everything or rebuild from standard bricks. (MOC parts are labeled with a '^' symbol in the group's name).
