Got this idea from the signs I see on the 401 that issue road warnings or Amber Alerts.

A pic of the real one is at the bottom.

Enjoy.

Nice Job. Achieves the look of the real one very well. Looks just like the ones we have here in Chicago. I wonder how a SNOT version would look with sideways oriented trans plates...

Great job, that definitely looks like the ones we see on the 401. My favourite part would have to be the solar panel. Small detail, but really important.

This is really smart. I like your creations because they are simple, yet detailed not only in their own construction but add a great amount of detail when included in a LEGO layout. I have a suggestion for you on this one: in creating that arrow, I think you should remove the one 1 x 1 round plate that forms the apex of the cross. The one that touches every part of it. I think that will make it look more like an arrow and less like a cross...

Great work!

That's because he lives in Hollywood's Chicago.

Whatever. Next you'll be telling me that Toronto is an actual city and not just a studio where they make movies about Chicago. :wink:

First, let me say that this is fantastic. It looks very realistic, without being overworked.

I do agree with Hinckley though, you should try removing that 1x1 round piece to make it more arrow like, and less like a cross.

Thanks for the great replies and glad you like it!

I never thought of a SNOT way to do it, and I think I can even get a better arrow that way.

I did take the "middle" 1x1 out and it does look a bit better.

If I can get a good result with SNOT I will update it.

Very nice bro! Achieve the look of the actual thing very well and works effectively!

Could maybe think of modifying it further to be lighted up with blinking lights maybe?? :thumbup:

As a BIG fan of the construction sets, I have been wanting to make a detour sign like this. It is a great idea.
