Hello everybody!

Hello! I'm Salvobrick, and welcome to the 2008 version of Brickville!

This is the new cinema. Today's movie is... Star Wars! :)

We have an hotel too. Maybe it is not a luxury one, but it's very confortable.

town08_tour04.jpg

Here is the cafe'. Ice-creams here are very big, arent' they? :)

town08_tour05.jpg

This is the post office. From here I can ship letters and parcels everywhere in the world.

The barber's shop. I need to have a new haircut, one day or another...

town08_tour07.jpg

We care a lot about culture. Here it is our local bookstore.

To the gorcer's we can buy the best fruits and vegetables.

Let's visit the train station.

How many people are waiting for the next train!

town08_tour13.jpg

This crane is very big!

Collecting trash is very important to keep our town clean.

Let's buy the newspaper now...

town08_tour16.jpg

Hmm... the news aren't very good... (the newspaper says: "Bank robbery")

town08_tour17.jpg

Let's have some fresh water from the fountain.

town08_tour18.jpg

This is the bank.

town08_tour19.jpg

Yum! I really need a good sandwich!

town08_tour20.jpg

I need to check my bank account at the ATM.

town08_tour21.jpg

This is the gas station. It's here since... 1958, I think ;)

town08_tour22.jpg

To visit the construction site I need to wear a safety helmet.

town08_tour23.jpg

Let's go up!

town08_tour24.jpg

What is there? Uh-oh...

town08_tour25.jpg

To go to the other side of the town, I need to take the bus.

town08_tour26.jpg

Nice garden, isn't it? Hello, kids!

town08_tour27.jpg

Hmm... the town is not totally safe...

town08_tour28.jpg

If you feel lost, here's the town plan.

Now I'm back at home, with my wife. I hope you liked the tour :)

Bye bye! :)

If I were a minifig and I needed a vacation, I would totally want to go to Brickville.

I love the classic feel of this. It's an excellent little urban setting. Could we see some aerial shots of your whole layout? *sweet*

That's a very nice Lego Town, SalvoBrick!

I like all these nice buildings and lovely details.

The most I like the hot dog man with his wagon - that looks amazing and could well be a real Lego set!

Very nice!

I *wub* it! All the details you have added yourself like the town map and the names of all the buildings just makes it more realistic! Great job, can't wait for an aerial shot. ;-)

That's a nice bustling, little town. It's very reminiscent of Town sets from the 80s and 90s. Keep it up SalvoBrick!

One final question: What trains are

Thank you for all the feedback :)

The buildings are in a more realistic style than the "classic" 80's buildings. Infact they have a closed back and streets have sidewalks (grey plates). No interiors because:

a) in closed buildings you can't really see the inside;

b) I havent's enough bricks to build all the interiors forniture :)

For those who want to see some aerial views, here there are some:

There are no trains yet because... they're late :-D

What a very nice town Salvobrick! I love all of your decals around the town like the little signs for star wars on the cinema! I love the fountainaswell!

My favorite building is possibly the cafe-hotel! but I love the canopy on the grocers, how much space does this town take up? I'm wondering because this is the size of town i would like to make.

One last thing, how did you get into that garden?! :-D I'm sure entry onto private property is against the law in your town! ;-) *y*

Lovely and classic.

Thanks for the birdviews! I like to have an overall view of a layout, with some closer views.

You've got a nice layout! Even if your buildings are more detailed than the classic lego sets, your layout has a classic feeling.

There are so many things to look for. And the guided tour is an excelent idea to show us your town!

The stickers are well done and are used right. I mean there are not so many of them and they are applied where we need them.

It's funny to see how you have made your own version of official sets or parts of sets, like the garbage truck, or the toilets for the building site :-D

Maybe you have done them before TLC...

Great work!

WOW! Your tour is a wonderful and pleasant one! I love the classic feel of your buildings. Small little realistics things such as the atm, maps, newspaper stand etc adds the whole real look to it. :-D

I hope one day, i can do up a city just like yours. :-)

Great job indeed!
