Hello everybody!
My new version of Brickville opens today, so here it is a guided tour of my sigfig of the new version of Brickville.
Posted Image
Hello! I'm Salvobrick, and welcome to the 2008 version of Brickville!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Posted Image
Here it is the Police station.

Posted Image
Cool! A TV interview! I will be on TV soon!

Posted Image
Let's visit the train station.

Posted Image
How many people are waiting for the next train!

Posted Image
This crane is very big!

Posted Image
Collecting trash is very important to keep our town clean.

Posted Image
Let's buy the newspaper now...

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

Posted Image
Let's have some fresh water from the fountain.

Posted Image
This is the bank.

Posted Image
Yum! I really need a good sandwich!

Posted Image
I need to check my bank account at the ATM.

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

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

Posted Image
Let's go up!

Posted Image
What is there? Uh-oh...

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

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

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

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

Posted Image
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!

A brilliant layout, with a lot of decent and neat buildings, and all of them´re
especially charming in their size and proportions. A very creative reminiscence
of the good old LEGO Town style, but still fresh and full of lovely details like the
blue, red and white striped column at the barber´s shop, the softdrinks dispenser
at the grocery, that fine ATM or the waste bin at the café!  *wub*
Everything looks colorful and very lively, simply a great work, thanks for the trip! *y*

Very nice town Salvobrick! *y*

It looks very complete, i mean it has it all!
I like your building style, really has a classic feel.

Like Hinckley, i'd like to see some areal shots too!
Oh and...did that train ever arrive? :-D
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

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!

Maybe needs a bit more internal fixtures to make it more lively.  :'-)

I really like the costum stickers.

The Trash Hauler and the Bus are so real.

Now the only thing  i noticed (i don't blame you)
I miss the interiors  :-$

Oh and i saw some OldGrey and Bley mixed
at the Construction Site .... yeah well thats me  :-$

One final question: What trains are
riding their regular service?

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

Seeya!  :-)

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.

This town has it all, the style, the size and also the colours are just perfect.

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!
