I have been pondering for a while wether to post my lego city or not but tonight I have decided to so here is the first group of pictures
here is the police station complete with working lift and helipad
next is the park complete with fountian and christmas tree. also in the park we have a guy selling hot dogs (in the summer he sells ice cream)
As you can also see we have a couple of benches and a group of carolers. Hiding on the fountian is a small frog (he enjoys the resedents talking to him)
Here we have another view of the park, we also have a small car park. at the back in the office building is the TV station (looking for a name for the tv station). we also have cafe bond where there has been an incident which the police are now dealing with. (later this month I will post pics without the police). Behind the tv station is the current storage site for the construction vehicles currently operated by connery construction.
Now we have the toy shop and the councis storage yard. As you can see the gritter and the bus are in the yard. next to the councils yard is a building that is currently being unused (the bank of lego is thinking about letting the building as are harrods) (please help me decide)
Next up is the cruise dock and the start of the cargo dock and at the top of the pic is the home of Presedent Pepper which is currently under construction.
later on I will add more pics of the city including the vehicle repair center as well as the airport, the research center and the
fire station. you will also see the rental shop and the hospital as well as the

What's on the very top of the police station with gears on it ?
Also could I suggest keeping the plates the same colour if you can, black-blue-black doesn't look right in the cop shop.
Love where you have made a little Christmas park too, sweet.
You made a motorhome too, very good, talking about pimp-my-ride 7639 !
What's that giant yellow vehicle by the bus, didn't know Mad Max drove buses now !
Road plates, if you can try and join like the police station and service station with T-junction plates and alike, it just adds to realism of youy city.
Anyway very good and cool work, 'Danim', keep it up !

The reason that the road plates are different as they are the only ones I have, same problem when attaching them together with the plates.
It is also a similar problem with the police station.
The gears on top of the police station are for the lift (more photos later on after I get the power functions motor and battery box).
The large yellow vehicle next to the bus is my snow plough/gritter (more info here snow plough
soon the road plates will be the same colour as I am going to be adding kerbs to them with dark grey plates covering the pavments once I get enough money to get them
the motorhome is more of a MOD to legos version. I will be posting photos of it up later

I love the busy streets, the town Xmas tree and the lava flow in front of the Toy Shop. Every town needs a good disaster!
A great way to integrate roadplates together is to use plate-built sidewalks. It holds them together and makes them look like they belong together. It also helps define the road. Two-high, seven studs wide is a good standard.

I don't know why but I really like looking at the pictures of your town. There is so much going on and everytime I discover something new!

You forgot to type the last thing (building?) we are about to see.

I am glad everyone likes it
I plan on adding the sidewalk (pavement in the uk) once I get enough money and time (anyone know a good source of dark grey plates in the uk)
appologies for forgetting the last building, the last building will be the coast guard headquaters. Also before january there will be a wind turbine being added when I get the wind turbine transport set (even though most of the buildings have solar panels (go green energy )

It would be much better with proper road plate, but maybe when you finish it, it will be done that, too.
Waiting for update!

The lava gap is now getting worked on by Connery Construction (I used henry jones sr's head from the indy motorbike set as the head of the owner of the construction crew) are working very hard and have told me that it will be sorted by the next update

By the way if you going to use that hospital I would redesign the driveway for it so a vehicle can drive straight up the ramp - in any case that hospital really needs a redesign (It is my least liked Lego set ever).
I will say one thing - I that fire boat - VERY WELL DONE - I think that is one of your great MOC's. Basing a fire ship on the coast guard version is fanastic !
I wish you luck is the continuing expansion of 'Bricklingston', keep up the good work.

The main runway of the airport goes south from the port so it is not that close to the city (not as close as heathrow or washington)
the repair garage is not for the aircraft but for the vehicles in Bricklingston
I do think that the mall idea is a good idea but I do not think it will work for me
The hospital will be getting redesigned but not at the moment which means that I will not change the driveway yet
I do have 2 roadplates on order from Lego and they should arrive before the end of the week
I am glad you like the fire boat, it was not paticuarly based on anything, I just felt that the fire boat needed a closed interior. If you wish I will post more pics of it in a different topic
Posted 10 December 2009 - 11:13 PM
I have now recived my order from lego and now the front of the toy shop has a roadplate rather than the entrance to hell
Also the airport has now changed slightly as I added in the second roadplate
Will post photos once I update the police station
Posted 16 December 2009 - 08:23 PM
The Police Station has had major upgrades, there is now much more room on the first and second floors as the front of the building has moved foward alot. There is now a much better lift system (which uses the power functions m motor and the battery box) and since the old system was removed there is now more room to store the motorbikes on the ground level under the cells
The Toy Shop now has alot more buisness as Connery Construction were able to close the gates of hell with alot of tarmac and concrete. Also there has been a stall set up next to the skate rink which is now renting out skates and skis
The airport has now been moved round to allow an extention of the runway (I ran out of room going that way) and in place of the airport there is now a working wind turbine to help cater for the extra electricity that is being used. As you can see Connery Construction are currently rebuilding the airport security center and finishing tarmacing the runway
Well thats all the recent updates but more will be added as well as another water fountian being added to the park (once I open the advent calendar for it) then after christmas more work will be done to Bricklingston

I love what you have done to the police station, but I would have the street light on the other side of the fence of the cop shop.
Great to see road plates - cool.
Is that solar panels on the cop shop as well as a few other buildings - you city is a green city - good one !
Keep up the great work 'Danim'.

Fist up is the airport with the improved security building
here we have the new motorised wind turbine as well as the vehicle hire store
new gates have been added to the presedential compound
the town square no longer has the christmas tree but it now allows more room for the citizens of Bricklingston
here is the redesigned skate park and hire shop
and finally a better view of the hire shop, the research center and the basketball court which is currently being used as a rc track

Right height - right length, good work.
Keep on bricking !

The biggest one is the installation of the Bricklingston Cable Car which you can see in this topic http://www.eurobrick...=1
The hospital and the news station were demolished and the a new news station was built on the mountain top.
The toy shop and the unused building wwere moved to where the news station was and Bricklingston Fancey Dress have taken up residance in the unused building but it was not big enough for them so they incresed the size of it
The new hospital which is not finished yet
and the park has had more trees planted
