After going through some rather disconnected MOCs (see my earlier Brickenridge-related topic), I have begun to bring things together and put together my little town of Brickenridge. I was at the LEGO store last week, and my purchase of road plates helped greatly in allowing me to plan the town--no longer was I just making free-floating buildings that would one day be joined by road plates. Because of this, I had to scrap many of the buildings that were going to be in the town to make way for new ones, classic-town scaled. Here is an overall shot of the town so far:
And a shot of the original layout, just for fun:
I re-scaled the post office from the earlier thread, and was able to use the O'gel music store, but that's about it. I still haven't found a place for my fountain. But the main focus of this topic is going to be this block:
The buildings are modular in design, so I will show you a few pictures of each one individually.
First we have the butcher's store:
Inside is the butcher himself, hard at work. The top floor, which I did not photograph, simply has a few refrigerators with turkey and the like.
Next is the barbershop:
The first floor has chairs where patrons can wait, and the top floor is where the haircuts happen. On the back wall is a broom; the barber's desk holds a mirror and some hair product.
Now my favorite of the three buildings: the café
The barista on the ground floor:
The top floor has chairs, tables, and an outdoor area:
For some reason, I really like the way the tables turned out:
There is one more building that is not shown, because I cannot yet fit it into the town: the chapel.
The roofs above the pews and the altar are removable:
Any thoughts, constructive criticism, etc. are most welcome!
