I thought that I will give an update about my town. Town had to move to another room (as my son was growing and needed all of his own room to him) and was a bit downsized Now still most of the buildings are not finished properly but the population is growing and growing. Some of the mini figures even moved out to nearby islands. Nazi Army protections services were replaced by Agents Mobile Command Truck and some of the Star Wars fleet. Otherwise it has been a year of the sports - NBA Challenge, Football Championship Challenge II, NHL Street Hockey, Gravity Games Skateboard Vert Park Challenge were added to the town and nearby winter resort got Gravity Games Snowboard Boarder Cross Race.
Shell hotel neighborhood
Now we have skating grounds, land hockey and out of picture are football and basketball courts to keep the young crowd away from Dr. Inferno and Dollar Bill temptations.
Old fort was restored and now houses Police station and fish market run by former pirate captain.
Town decided to take town the genetically modified palm trees and the job was given to most trusted and well paid of the town workers.
Due to world financial crisis I am not able to present to you my finished version of the town this year. So I decided to go for WIP now. What you see is created from scratch starting Christmas 2008 (when my son got harbor, coast guard and Ferrari sets) as we had only Duplo (almost all ville sets from 2005 on) until now. For the project I ordered only from BL new parts or purchased sets locally.
Marko Bay is located on an Mediterranean island. Its citizens are friendly folks who live from tourism and trade. South side of the bay has old town quarter with church, hotel and some residential buildings to the south-east. Not yet started are left from the hotel town hall with shops and to the right supermarket with apartments on top floors. South-west we have Ferrari Garage, Shell station and Airport. To the west we have two private houses - one belongs to Felippe Massa/Kimi Räikkönen and other to Juan Montoya. There is one more lot left there that will be most probably inhabited by Bruce Wayne. On north there are Coast Guard station, port and the Barn (first building of the whole settlement). Many developments were planned for future but due to the recession plans will be reviewed.
