The Police Station is said to be Lego's most successful set counting all its iterations since the first one "354 Police Heliport" released in 1972. Time to bring the latest version to Mecabricks!

60047 - Police Station

Sound the Police Station alarm! The tow truck has yanked the jail window clean off with the chain and is helping the prisoner escape! Another prisoner is making off through the roof hatch, while another has dug a secret escape route through the toilets! There’s no time to lose! Take off in the police helicopter and spot the runaways from the sky and then zoom after them in the police car and motorbike before they get away for good! Includes 7 minifigures with assorted accessories: 3 policemen, a policewoman and 3 crooks.

Update 06/2016: cleaned-up model and (almost) finished decorations.

Update 09/2016: added part #88393, #11289, #11299 and #61800

Update 02/2017: thanks to Scrubs' help this set is now complete! Added missing parts and decorations and set up scene in the style of the original box shot.

I think I had a chat with SCRUBS about the preview icons of brick on brickset. I am wondering if this is created by official LEGO data or another ressource like LDRAW or something complete different?

I don't know. I was wondering about their preview renderings of decal parts. They're obviously using clean hires decorations, so they can't be ripped of the LDD database, which is pretty limited (~1.500 decals) and fairly low resolution. Perhaps they get data from TLG under NDA? Or they have somebody working on creating decal parts from stickers or photos? Anyway, it would be great to have access to these. But since Lego is certainly concerned with protecting their IPs, they likely keep hires meshes and decal layouts under tight wraps - before the Chinese copycat everything (if they don't already do anyway).

Since LDD is meanwhile discontinued and thus no new parts are going to be added, they must actually be using LDraw data, one could think. Another theory is, that the LDD development is in fact being continued internally and companies like Brickset get part updates from TLG.

What's crazy with LDRAW that it looks like they are close to the official LEGO database and all decorations are modeled. I am wondering what kind of tool(s) they are using for creating new parts. And to model special parts like Simpsons or kids themes with special figures (pig, mouse etc.) you definitely need the original part as a reference.

Perhaps they 3d-scan complicated parts and create a clean mesh from the point cloud like Scrubs does to create minifig wigs, accessories and stuff. Hard to estimate how close or not the results are to the original (any lores versions probably not that close), but who cares, as long as the parts appear smooth and the studs fit (not to talk about rendering close-ups of low-poly stuff here...)

Hi. I think that like for your other car model, you have issues with the wheels of the red pick-up.

LDRAW does not 3D scan parts or something like that; they simply model the decorations with quads and triangles. That´s why LDRAW doesn´t have much decoration parts.

If you just put the tyre material to rubber, the model will be perfect and 100% ready for rendering winking face
The scene organisation is top notch. From my point of view, it is way nicer than having the minifigs aligned in front of the building thumbs up sign

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but one of the faces on one of the minifigs is wrong. Confused face The policeman chasing the bad guy on foot with a pair of hand cuffs should have this face http://brickset.com/parts/6021614
instead of

I was trying to make Chase Mccain and I thought I could because I saw this set on here but I couldn't cause it was the wrong face. Oh well.

Yes, I noticed that, when I did the render. I'll add the other head in the next days. It's not hard to do.

Fixed cop head and updated rendering.

Append 'cty458' to add the minifig to your scene, or add part 3626d818 for the head.

'Backside transparency' disappeared. Guess in order to resolve other issues with transparency. Should I go back to two-sided decals or just wait?
Scrubs

No change. This is more correct to have it only on one side. Hopefully one day there will be a solution to solve all issues for transparency.
