Posted Image Layout

Here are some pictures of my current layout and some random pictures of the city. Enjoy! The ugly house on top of my bike shop will be destroyed when I get back from vacation.

You build cities like I do, that is, try to fit a lot of stuff in a compact space.  :)  I like the Adidas shop, the sticker works there even tho non-LEGO but my favorite is the Police Station with Statue outside.  Lookin good!

You should move the Paramedic Unit.  Or ditch it.  Classic set, but it's taking up that outside corner on that curve plate where you can conceivably fit another larger building.  Real estate seems to be at a premium here...

Amazing work! Your dedication really pays off. Each building has its own style but blends right in with the city layout. Great job, you've created quite an impressive display.

Maybe you could build a construction site to represent your next update?  :classic:

It's been a while since my last update. This is my new layout. In the future I will add more baseplates to build on as I can't fit all of my buildings on this table. The bank has been moved and there are some new additions: a Lego Store, a nice star wars cannon to defend the harbor, and my bike shop and general store as seen in this topic.

Next plans are
-Moving the bank (yet again) to it's own (bigger) building
-Renovating the Lego store
-Finishing my hospital (construction site next to the adidas store)
-A record shop

Some town designs are a yuk mish-mash, but yours is great.....the variety of styles, colours....you have worked hard to putting both you slant on Lego and classic town together. :thumbup:

Posted Image Layout

Big update. Just got the Prince of Persia set "Battle for Alamut" off sale. I desided to convert it to a middle-eastern market. Also I have change the layout slightly and added a bit of life to the streets. I'm looking for a table to put next to the one I have, so I can expand the city, as I got a couple of buildings that don't fit on the table.
Comments are welcome! Enjoy!

Nice to see how your city keeps growing and changing like real cities. Got a couple of ideas from those photos. Keep it up.
I am inspired by all I see.

It's getting bigger and better! You could definitely use another table. Keep up the good work 'deen'   Posted Image

Finished (the exterior of) a new and more impressive bank. Not quite happy with the statue yet and the building still needs interior.

Enjoy!
