Hospital Scenes
« on: September 11, 2019, 13:15:06 »
I oftentimes enjoy creating small vignettes to display my klickies in an appropriate setting.

Here is one such vignette: a glimpse of a hospital dormitory.



Nurses in traditional dress go about their business...



... while a patient tries to take his first steps with a brand-new plaster cast.



Luckily a nurse is there to prevent him from faceplanting into the floor.





Next will be an operating room!

That's really nice - and I love the idea of the hotel women as nurses! :love:

(your hospital room reminds me of the one I did for the xmasy dio a few years back - I think it's because of the system X used)

Four nurses to one patient! Not the NHS then!

Lovely scene  PlaymoCollector! It reminds me of set 3495, the very first set we ever had, back in 1994!
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Thanks for your nice words, they mean a lot to me!  :D

Your hospital room dio is lovely, tahra! I'll have to check out the entire story. Indeed the setup is very much alike.

I chose the hotel maids because they were readily available, and at the same time they were a close match to the traditional nurse look – I have a soft spot for anything with a retro feel.

Your comment is on point GrahamB, the scene is a bit crowded! I wasn't in the game yet in 1994, but those old sets still strike me for their simplicity.

As anticipated, here's the operating room I put together. The vet clinic base was a blessing as it fits everything smoothly and does not show any of the Sys-X useful, but ungainly holes.



Obligatory disclaimer: there's no accuracy to be found here, I just assembled whatever I thought was fitting (though I still have to wrap my head around what those orange jars are meant to be).



Everybody's busy at work: handling scalpels, keeping surgical tools at the ready, checking vitals, each and every member of the team knows their task and is on it.

Exactly, the one with the CLINIC print.

A very nice scene, PlaymoCollector. Great use of the vets clinic base!

Thanks! Already thinking of procuring a second one.
