  1. @Legogal Thanks! I decided a while ago that I can't justify buying and displaying such big models. And for me, it's a lot more fun to design and build my own models. @KamalMYafi Thanks!! I've had the idea for a while. Glad I could finally build it out of real bricks.
  2. @ColletArrow Thanks! I don't think I'll be building any standard size modulars anytime soon due to size and cost constraints. I build in the same scale as the official minis (8x8 baseplate) but mine are a little taller. I think the official minis tend to be 2-3 bricks per floor and mine are 3-4 per floor.
  3. Hey everyone! I haven't built much of anything over the last couple of years but finally got back to it. I designed this mini modular a few years ago and just got around to actually buying the pieces. I initially planned to use red, blue, yellow, green, orange, and purple but decided to go with the dark and sand colors because they're a bit more subdued and fit my mini modular street better. I might swap the sand green and dark red. The dark red seems to be a bit hidden when its with other building and I think think red provides a nice contrast with the rest of the colors.

Let me know what you think!
  4. Very cool. I'm a huge fan of Set 4000001 Moulding Machines so to see a mini version is pretty cool. If you're willing to share the plans/pieces of the moulding machine, let me know. Thanks!
  5. ^Thanks! @BEAVeR: I like the idea of a ruin. I'll see if I can make it happen!
  6. @BEAVeR: I went through a couple of different flag ideas. I figured it I'd rather have it be a little to big then to look like the little one on the Fire Brigade mini. As to your question about this being a one time thing: initially it seems so...unless you have some other historically themed ideas? I'm all ears!
  7. @Legogal: Thanks! You better believe they're loaded! @Artanis I: Thanks for the feedback. I'd been debating whether a castle was viable at this scale for a while. I thought I found a suitable architecture for the 8x8 scale. I'd love to make a full size castle but one of the reasons I make mini mods is lower piece count = less money
  8. Hello again. I just completed my latest moc mini modular. It's a castle! Some features you'll see include a moat, drawbridge, alligator, and four cannons! Any comments, questions, or suggestions are appreciated. As always, you can see more photos on my flickr. Thanks for taking the time to look. I hope you like it!
  9. Thanks you two!
  10. Thanks BEAVeR! I appreciate the suggestions and will keep them in mind on my next builds. :)
  11. Hi, Happy New Year! Finally got a chance to test out my new camera on my latest mini mocs. Enjoy! Art Store: Little Lime Corner: Both: As always, any comments or suggestions are appreciated. You can see a few more angles on my flickr. Thanks for looking!
  12. Thanks moctown. I hope to see some new ones from you soon.
  13. Thanks ManInATopHat and Kristel!
  14. Hi! I just finished my latest mini modular. It's a mini modular rendition of 10193 Medieval Market Village. I tried to keep it simple because I had most of these pieces on hand and only needed to order a handful or so. Anyways, I hope you like it. Let me know what you think.
