While I was waiting for the last of my orders to finish my Bricklyn Borough Courthouse MOC, I got the 10230 Mini Modulars set and fell in love. I decided to try my hand at making my own, and based on the bricks I had laying around decided to make it of my Galaxy Diner and Empire Theater. I didn't quite have the bricks I needed, but I was able to complete the model in LDD. This was back in April, and between going straight from my courthouse model to pulling all-nighters for my 15 Central Park West model in now in the National Building Museum in Washington, DC and then taking a well deserved break, I never got around to ordering the final bricks to make the real thing until a couple weeks ago.
As the original model was 32 x 64 studs, the mini version is 8 x 16 - too large for the contest, but since I was happy with how it turned out, I wanted to post it anyway. I am working with my LUG to get the LDD file posted, and I will update this post once it is in case anyone wants it.
Enough talk. Here is the final model.
This translated to the smaller format remarkably well, and most of the iconic features of the original theater and diner facades made it more or less intact.
Here it is with the official Mini Modulars...
... and here it is with its big brother, the Cafe Corner scaled version.
More photos are on my flickr account.
REVISED UPDATE: The LDD file has been put up on my LUG's website - click here to go to the site. You might need to right-click and select "Save Link As" to get the file.
Thanks for looking. Questions and comments are always appreciated!
