I am excited to share my entry for the expand the Winter Village competition.
It is a Winter Sports Store. The store is a 2 story shop with all of equipment one needs for winter fun!
On the main floor you can find an assortment of snowboards, ski poles, ice skates, hockey helmet/mask, warm winter coats, hockey sticks, and snow shoes.
Outside you can find a variety of skiis in different sizes and some old fashioned wooden sleds.
In the top floor you will find an office with desk and chair and a heated fireplace complete with stockings.
One of the many services offered by the store is free ice skate sharpening for skates purchased from the store.
Like the Lego sets so far I have included a light brick but with a twist. Activating the light brick eluminates the lower floor and lights up the fire place.
I had a challange illustrating this with the pictures.
Also different, is you can turn on the light from the front of the shop. Simply turn the big brown wheel a notch and it turns and stays on.
The accessories included are an old bridge over a creek that is meant to attach to the skating pond from last years' set.
The bridge pathway was built "snot" using shades of new and old grey
Also included is a dog sleigh / sled. The sled is able to be ridden from the back or front. I don't think Lego would approve of useing a whip on dogs so I choose to borrow the bone idea from this years set and use a more positive method to get the dogs going. But just in case the whip is there should the dogs get out of line.
In total there are 7 figures of which 2 are children. I used the boxing gloves from series 5 to give the effect of big red mittons on the kids.
Thank you for looking. I welcome your comments, questions, and feedback.
Unfortunatley I could not fit all of the details into 5 pictures, so feel free to visit by Brickshelf folder: http://www.brickshel...ry.cgi?f=491187
