Street furniture

18 posts in this topic

Can people post examples of how they dress their streets? I'm looking for inspiration for a beginner for things like traffic lights, and general street furniture. Ideally to go alongside a modular street but unlimately I'm looking for ideas so scale isn't as important as imagination.

Thanks :)

Well, for instance, I got a newspaper vending machine:

And a (defaced) election poster, a bench and filled trashcan - and adding some scenes like a police action is good to liven things up:

Here's my traffic light design; Technic parts and snot bricks were the main ingredients

Roadway (3-13-12 WIP)

I'll be watching this thread too as I am also looking for inspirations like the OP

LT, that phone booth is excellent. I need to add some street furniture also.

All I have are a couple benches and newsstand.

OT!: -> Tiger, we don't have red phonebooths here in DK - that's the UK :wink:

And TDC is dismantling the rest, everybody have cell/mobilephones here now. Buy less Lego and save up for a ticket to Denmark :tongue:

I use what comes in the sets: light posts in the Modulars. Street and signal lights from City. There's great ideas here for other bits, however. The newsstand, the different sidewalk techniques.

I really like your bus shelter! I also have them in my town, but i have no bus. They serve more as a gazebo.

Brick On!

I remember in my early Lego days I would build custom phone booths. Now they cease to exist around me in real life, but part of me want my Lego people to live in a simpler time.

I only am using the Catwoman's Cycle street light (modified of course) and the newspaper dispenser. Real original, I know.

I love seeing these other ideas. Great work everyone!

I use these too. May I ask what modifications you made to it?

Sorry, 1974, that's not true. TDC actually wanted the phonebooths to be red, and in some places they actually were, as can be seen from this link http://www.fotojesper.dk/gallery/displayimage.php?pid=765. But they were also dark blue and green, depending on the colour of the street furniture in the town/city.

Here are some pics of a radar trap I've made a while back:

And a modified traffic light, which is based on the regular ones from TLC:

With a traffic sign add-on:
