**additional UPDATE PHOTOS in BELOW POSTS** Comments welcome.
I wanted to add to the stock Mini Modular set, so I tried making mini scale cars with some street. First time ever to do something like this (Sean Kenney's work help inspired the cars.) This is the start to a greater plan in my head. I think the cars are the right scale for the minis. The plan is to make the street wider and create a larger scene with my own future mini mod creations. Thanks for lookings

That's a great idea. The cars look nice, but I feel the fire truck could use some more details.

Looks good, although the street looks a bit too narrow. The yellow car looks to be riding the curb. Might try making it 3x instead of 2x. I can't wait to see you(and others) expand on the minis.

Very nicely scaled cars, I wonder if the vehicles from the Tower Bridge set would fit in here as well?
Too much Lego, so little moneh!

Good thought with the Tower cars. The street definitely needs to be three wide. This was just a test run.

I think at this scale the street needs to be brick built, but rotated 90deg so you can have single plate thin street markers.

Nice work, the blue rover type vehicle looks great! And I spot a fire truck, excellent  :laugh: . Vincent is right though, the fire truck needs more details. How about making some compartements at the back?

Looks nice, although that fire truck needs some detailing. Too bad there wasn't a mini one in the mini modulars.

Thanks to everyone with their comments and suggestions.  Below are the photos of the revised streets. I have also added a truck and a motocycle(w/ a "minifigure" riding.  I have used cones w/ a 1x1 stud for the head.  Outside the grand E I have a mom and a child....And two "mini figures" in the cross walk.  Hope you enjoy.

Added a little park. Since I kept the streets modular like the buildings making adding and expanding is very easy.  Hope they make the new modulars into minis. Its a little hard to see but Im using the extra rope in the Mini Modulars as the border.  I like how the fountain turned out.  It provided a nice break and some "green" space to the street scape.

That looks like a great modular road system for the Mini Modulars.
Did you put an extra plate under the Mini Modular?

The park is a very nice addition to the street scene. And the fire truck is much better now, nice use of the car door piece! But the motor cycle looks a bit odd compared to the rest of the vehicles. To me it's giving more the impression of a snowmobile somehow...

To Vincent: I did place a 2x6 plate under each building to give just enough height to clear the streets.  

To Brick Box: I agree the motorcycle is more of a Tron light cycle.

This is my first attempt at anything like this. Micro or city. Next step will be to design my own buildings.
