In a part of the city that doesn't show up in tourist guides a small cemetery still lays between the modern modular buildings.

I think it looks great. I like all the details, but you may want to find out if that sidewalk is allowed, or will you have to modify it.

It does meet the criteria; 8 wide footpath, not my fault the pavement is lousy. Blame the town-council for not willing to invest in the neighbourhood. :laugh:

I think your technique and look of the footpath/sidewalk is sublime if I'm being perfectly honest.

I've always thought the mark of a brilliant Lego design is one which makes the viewer think "holy cheeseballs how'd they do that?" even though the pieces and method is often ultimately obvious, just as this is with the round studs and plates. Obvious technique but striking on the eyes...

I was thinking along the same lines myself, before finally deciding on another idea for my entry. But yours is an excellent version of a small urban cemetery, just the thing to break up a modular row of buildings. Good luck!

EDIT: Spelling.

First thanks for the compliments! It is appriciated knowing others like your stuff. :laugh:

By suggestion I have changed the sidewalk to be more compliant with the Modular standard.
It now has a light grey curbe and dark bley stones. Well most are anyway. Still not enough money to do a total workover. For real; I picked my last LEGo money this month for a bricklink order of dark bley tiles because I don't use them that often.

The back hasn't been changed. This way it still looks like a real alley not used since medieval times.

First post will be edited accordingly.

That looks great, and having a few of those 2x2 round plates is a good accent. I never felt you needed to change the back alley.

That's a great addition to town. I like how you created the cemetery, looking slightly forgoten. The back pavement looks great (I'm using similar style in another MOC), and the tumb stones with fish details are great. Good luck in the contest. :thumbup:
