This looks excellent. Is it based on a book or a tv serie?

Thank you!

The building is just something I made up. I bicycle through the wealthier parts of Stockholm on my way to work. This is one of the buildnings I see every day:

I wanted some fun names for the figures, so I used some names in the Swedish version of The Pinchcliffe Grand Prix: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pinchcliffe_Grand_Prix

This is a superb build! I love the lighting, it makes a build come alive and has been well applied here.

Thanks for sharing :classic:

What a lovely build - I like how tastefully you've incorporated the pearl gold railings into the balconies. I also appreciate the use of that 6-sided plant part as a table.

Thanks for sharing!

I just noticed too the flexible parts used to make the domes - very creative!

The corner tower roof has been lying arond for at least two years before it finally came to use.

The two smaller tower roofs is pretty much the same as this:

The copper roof looks fantastic. The architecture remins me of Amsterdam School's brick expressionist social housing projects from 1910s and 1920s. The colour scheme seems well balances, except maybe those lime green roof bits (but it's okay because it's cool piece use and they don't come in sand green or completely dark green). It's sometimes hard to use reddish brown as main wall colour, as everyone thinks its unpainted wood - even though wood is rarely brown. I suppose it's brick here, and I think it looks great with white window frames.

And, bit of a nitpicking, but I think the sides of the roof would be better if they'd be made of tan or brown bricks. It's not much use putting expensive roof cladding material to load-bearing walls.

Thank you for your kind words and feedback!

The roof bits do come in sand green as of 2019, in Welcome to Apocalypseburg! but I built the roof two years ago. It has been waiting on a shelf since then, and I don't want to spend an extra 15 EUR.

The brown is supposed to be some kind of plaster (not sure about the terminology here). To make it look a bit worn down, I've used some old brown with the newer reddish brown.

The nitpicking bit might be true, but it looks better in sand green, and it's just cheap paint instead of expensive copper. :wink:

I've used Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Angular Extension and Flexible Tip.

I really like this. I was a bit skeptical when I saw your previous Corner Towe House, but I'm becoming quite a fan of your style. :sweet:
