For the Expand the Winter Village contest: Brickmaker's Shop
The story line, a youngster drops off his brick order at the Brickmaker while the snow blower keeps the sidewalk clear. Inside the Brickmakers are all hard at work. We've got one loading in ABS pellets to be turned into some lovely 1x2 plates while another worker loads up boxes to be shipped out. Upstairs in the imagination room a designer plays with new molds and designs for the upcoming year.
The project was inspired by two projects, LEGO's limited release of a Molding Machineand [url="http://www.departmen...roducts&plg=LB" rel="nofollow">www.department56.com/products/ProductDetail.aspx?item=56"]Department 56's release[/url] of a project with some LEGO bricks in it. I was also inspired by the current Winter Village line and tried to incoporate some elements of those models including a distinct chimney, Christmas colors such as dark green and red, and a layout that encourages play. I also like the Friends floor concept where tiles are mixed with plates so that minifigs can be moved around and posed in a wider range of poses. I'm planning on doing this to the second floor but ran out of time.
