  1. As promised, the backstory to the choice of Easter Bunny!! The idea for this came about when I was unable to find the headpiece for the CMF Bunny-Suit guy I was originally going to use and so had to use March Harriet instead!! The story may be continued as a Batman story in the future (if Lego ever produce a Mad Hatter figure!!) but for now it's just another strange day in the life of Ballabreek!!

Thanks for looking... comments welcome as always!!
  2. Fantastic stuff!! The whole scene looks perfect; from the cars themselves to the stations the landscaping and the surrounding buildings (great looking roof design!!) The streetlight lighter guy is a cool touch too!! Nice work!!
  3. That is very impressive!! I especially like the elaborate bike shed and the interior details are spot on!! Excellent work!!
  4. This week's update should be called "Easter Fun in the Park"!! What better way to spend Easter Sunday than taking the kids to the local park for some Easter inspired activities... Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr You can try your hand at decorating eggs... Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr There's the ever popular Easter egg hunt... how many can you spot!? Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Found one!! Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr There's a chance for the kids to get up close to some cute Easter-themed animals thanks to the local petting zoo who have brought some rabbits and chicks.. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Free hot-cross buns are also available... (my favourite part of Easter!!) Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr And of course a chance to meet the Easter bunny!! (this isn't the "bunny" originally booked to attend but more about that in the next update - just waiting for a Bricklink order to arrive before I can tell that story!!) Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Anyway thanks for looking... and Happy Easter!!!
  5. Great looking buildings!! I really like the variety of architectural designs you've used - especially the curved glass roof structure and the tan "tower" section. As others have said it could definitely hold its own as an official set. Fantastic stuff and I look forward to seeing more of your work!!
  6. I really like this!! The yoga studio is a great idea ("Stetch or stretch not - there is no try!!") and the contrast with it's calm and tranquil atmosphere and the busy coffee shop made me smile (what is King Tut putting in that coffee!?) The building itself looks perfect - especially the Egyptian style first floor - nice work!!
  7. That is really cool!! I also get a very "Prince of Persia" vibe from it!! A wind powered clock is a great idea and I love the building designs (especially the windmill sails) and the statue in the centre!! Excellent stuff!!
  8. Well Easter's almost here and the sun is shining so this update takes us down to the seaside to see how the locals are getting ready for summer!! Those familiar with Ballabreek's recent history will notice that the car ferry has gone!! Introduced last year on a trial basis to reduce congestion on the roads, it proved popular but too expensive to run and so other solutions to reduce traffic are being considered (namely an eco-friendly bus service due to go into service later this year). In the meantime, the harbour has now been freed up for more recreational uses. Then Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Now Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Plenty of spaces for pleasure craft to tie up Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Jet-Skis, sailboats and pleasure cruisers are all welcome!! Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr This increase in use is a good thing for local businesses. The sunshine has brought people out to enjoy the market Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Arthur Curry, the local dive shop owner, is gearing up for the new season... Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr The seaside cafe serves delicious ice cream!! Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr A few hardy souls are even braving the open air pool (as the weather warms up, it'll get a lot busier as people come to enjoy "Fun at the Beach"!!) Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr As you can tell, I've bought a couple of new sets, the Creator seaplane and the city catamaran and this seemed the perfect way to use them!! As always, comments are welcome. Thanks for looking...
  9. Thanks for the comments - I did experiment with a working trapdoor but it took up too much space. Anyway, I'm sure we'll see more of Arkham later in the year (just waiting for some baseplates in "proper green"!!!) This week's update makes use of the new dune buggy set and as ever has a bit of a background story (Possibly setting the scene for another Batman villain origin tale!!)... Local Ballabreek boy, Matt Hagan, was a popular actor until a highly public falling out with a major film director saw him struggling to find parts. Angry and frustrated at his treatment, he's turned his back on the film industry and now puts his energy into his love of motor racing, participating in a number of extreme races. His latest challenge involves a long distance unsupported desert race using a dune buggy he's designed and built himself. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Here Matt is interviewed by the local press... after receiving a lot of negative publicity in the past, he's hoping to rebuild his public image. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr A scale model of the route - a challenging course through soft sand in an area suffering from regular sandstorms. Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr A couple more views of the scene... Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr Untitled by g.nat, on Flickr So how will he get on in the race? Well we'll just have to wait and see.... (I'm sure any Batman fans might be able to work out where this might be going!!) Anyway, thanks for looking!! Comments are welcome as always.
  10. Excellent work... the hat signs look great and the colours and details are spot on and I especially like the texture and use of grey in the roof - very realistic!!
  11. 8 days work!! That's incredible and it looks stunning - I love all the architectural details and the cool parts usage (especially the handcuffs!!) Excellent work!!
  12. That's brilliant!! The plane launcher is a great idea and I love the control room too... not too sold on all the yellow (some black detailsmight break it up a bit?) though but that"s just being picky!! Excellent stuff!
  13. Received my prize A a few days ago... now my Spidey's got his hands full!!! Thanks again to Copmike!!
  14. A fantastic build!! I love all the greebling you've got going on - adds a nice dark, industrial vibe too the scene!! The reflection is cleverly done too - nice work!!
  15. To the Bat-sewing machine!! Brilliant idea and nicely done!! Thanks for sharing!!
