My new town opens today! Guided tour
Posted 16 February 2008 - 06:10 PM
My new version of Brickville opens today, so here it is a guided tour of my sigfig of the new version of Brickville.
Hello! I'm Salvobrick, and welcome to the 2008 version of Brickville!
This is the new cinema. Today's movie is... Star Wars! :)
We have an hotel too. Maybe it is not a luxury one, but it's very confortable.
Here is the cafe'. Ice-creams here are very big, arent' they? :)
This is the post office. From here I can ship letters and parcels everywhere in the world.
The barber's shop. I need to have a new haircut, one day or another...
We care a lot about culture. Here it is our local bookstore.
To the gorcer's we can buy the best fruits and vegetables.
Here it is the Police station.
Cool! A TV interview! I will be on TV soon!
Let's visit the train station.
How many people are waiting for the next train!
This crane is very big!
Collecting trash is very important to keep our town clean.
Let's buy the newspaper now...
Hmm... the news aren't very good... (the newspaper says: "Bank robbery")
Let's have some fresh water from the fountain.
This is the bank.
Yum! I really need a good sandwich!
I need to check my bank account at the ATM.
This is the gas station. It's here since... 1958, I think ;)
To visit the construction site I need to wear a safety helmet.
Let's go up!
What is there? Uh-oh...
To go to the other side of the town, I need to take the bus.
Nice garden, isn't it? Hello, kids!
Hmm... the town is not totally safe...
If you feel lost, here's the town plan.
Now I'm back at home, with my wife. I hope you liked the tour :)
Bye bye! :)

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*

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!

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*

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
The build a frigate tutorail!

That is soooo beeeaaaauuutiful !!
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?
Posted 17 February 2008 - 02:20 PM
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

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.

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...

The cinema has been modified (even if the movie is still "Star Wars"... :-) )
The restaurant has now some outdoor tables.
Finally, the train has arrived! :-)
The new cargo train is ready, done entirely with set #10183. Seeya later! :-)

Great job indeed!
