Thanks for the replies icy and sput. Yes that's a crane on the roof, and yes the joke is from Crocodile Dundee.

OK, Now that a few Bricklink orders have come in, I've managed to complete the Theater..

I decided to use the Town Plan style of seating

S4 Night at the Theater

Posted Image

Standing room only!

Brick on! and as always, questions, comments, suggestions, and criticisms welcome.

Great job, LCM, the interior of the theater looks much better with the extra seats. :thumbup: The sign is also pretty well done; do you plan on adding a tile built sign/a decal to it?

Here's a feature in my town I don't think I've shown/discussed much. The Stoneford Park.

You can see the water tower near the Stone Creek.

Posted Image

The creek flows into a cistern under the bridge where it is pumped up into the water tower to be processed for use in the city.

Posted Image

Here you can see a Civil War era cannon in the park under the memorial tree honoring the citizens of Stoneford who fought in all conflicts.

Posted Image

A small pier jetties into the river so people can sit and watch the water or simply do a bit of fishing. On the opposite side of the river a wall to keep the river from flooding out the town if the water level rises.

Posted Image


Posted Image

Here you can see where the park fits in the town, right next to the beverage store.

I like the civil war cannon monument.
You should give a backstory about the town like when it was founded and why, or something like that.
great job- Sputnik 16 :classic:

I just wanted to say that I am very impressed with the look of the town, and the subtle complexity of the details.
Its a great job and I really enjoyed reading and will continue to enjoy the progress of the growth of the town.

Thanks for posting your work LCM.

The park is taking longer than I expected, However I have begun work on a train station which incorporates a large amount of Lime bricks. Also I am starting planning on a Service Station. One that's not in LT's poll. Based off this.

So, the train station is "done" for now. A bit more detailing and some track eventually.

Stairs up to the platform.
Posted Image

The clock over the doorway into the station.
Posted Image

What's this the back of the station is OPEN???
Posted Image
There will eventually be a fence on the platform and you'll get on the train from inside the station.

Some glass block on the backside letting light in
Posted Image

The Ticket Counter and behind it the Station Masters desk and storage areas

Comments, Questions, and Suggestions always welcomed.

I wondered if you'd get that joke ;) Brick on
Gah, why is it that it's the guy who is in exile from the country for tax fraud remains an Australian icon to folks from the rest of the world? :sceptic:

Anyway, I'm really liking this town you're working on. The theater is a particular favourite, but I'm not too sure about the blue walls. The tan and red looks brilliant, and the yellow seats even work with the black. But those blue walls look a bit out of place. I guess it ultimately comes down to the parts in your collection, which is probably why you picked blue, but if it were a possibility to Bricklink some parts, I would highly recommend getting more tan for the walls. Maybe even white, but the blue...just not right for a theatre. Also, perhaps you could put a bar in it?

Cheers,


Capt. Zuloo

Actually the bottles with the ship in them are from Pirates of the Caribbean set 4191 The Captain's Cabin.
