As the settlement of Fuerte Unido remains successful and civilized, the populous settlement is just finishing laying it's last coat of paint down for it's newest primary school, "Nautical One." Settlers are making sure to come as well dressed as possible for the grand opening in which a battle wounded Eslandolian naval gunner tells his story of unfortunate and fortunate findings alike.

Here's to the last coat of paint. Cheers!

Anyone know a chiropractor? This poor man is definitely going to need one...:wacko:

Meanwhile, looks like some people need reminding of their job. Stop gambling in front of the kids!

During this scene, the naval gunner explains how he managed to weave in-between four cutlass slices at once! Of course the teacher couldn't help but throw in 2+2=4 equation after hearing that...

Meanwhile, the older kids get to reinact the famous battle of Don Brickoxte vs the "Giants"!

It's always nice to have a little peace in your own quarters after a long day of work!

After the long heroic story of the sailor, everyone is ready to go home.

What a wonderful class! Seriously though... somebody needs to get a chiropractor to come over here. It is simply unhealthy for that man to still be carrying those books!

Thank you, everyone, for viewing my build! To anyone who was wondering, all stickers and bricks are official lego. The stickers are from an idea book from 1980 and the cast is made from white blank stickers. The bottom floor windows and backside top window are from the Lego Italian Minitalia series, and I got tons of enjoyment working with them! Hope you enjoyed the build!

Here are a few more playfeatures/photos for anyone interested:

Really neat way of doing those lower story windows with the panel pieces or whatever those corners parts are called!

Fuerte Unido definitely needed a school. Now all those little rugrats will be off the streets. :pir-grin:

The windows are definitely the scene-stealers here! But I like that you've gone with a tiled roof, and of course the fully detailed interior! And so many short leg pieces!

Good job with the figure posing, and with the build overall. :thumbup:

This is a lovely build.  I like the thought you've put into the layout and all the little details.  That lean-to shed is a nice touch, and the vintage 1x1 windows work really well there.  Plus the cypress trees and the other vintage windows on the front, that gives it an extra Classic feel with some great modern touches.  :classic:

Love all aspects of it as well as the story.

All these old 1x1 windows:wub:

Thanks for the kind words, Wellesley! Glad you liked the story!

Definitely! They keep stealing all my merchant torsos and small legs. These troublemakers need to calm down or else we'll be at war with them too! 

Thanks for the compliments, Wolf! I'm very happy that everyone enjoyed it! :grin: Also, glad you liked the posing! The worker holding the books constantly feel down and would domino effect every minifigure so I'm glad that experience wasn't in vain!:wall:

Thank you for the wonderful words, Deraven! Glad you liked the layout, as I was unsure how it would turn out. Always love using the old classic bricks, and it's nice to see that everyone else likes to see them! Also happy to see someone else's gratitude for the cypress trees, I love those things! :sweet:

Oh very cool TNM! A seamless bending of old and new here. Like everyone's said those old windows are very effective in this style and combined with the smoothness of the walls and dark brown roof make for an impressive looking structure. I was quite surprised as I scrolled down to discover the full interior! Your attention to detail here is plain to see with all the little features and details. Excellent job!

The school was done really well. I like all the small details added like the shed, the desks and chalk board and the guy painting the brick. 

At first glance it though it was small but when you took the interior pictures and showed all the figures, I realized how big it really was. Good job!

Very nice. :thumbup: The exterior looks great with those old windows and tiled roofs, and the interior is rather impressive, considering the size and layout. I really like how accessible you've managed to make everything with the full interior. And the work on and around the chimney is nice.

The teacher is clearly telling the students that 2 enemies swinging 2 swords each equals 4 cuts...

The painter adds some nice details, and I like the faint lighting in the last few pics. I don't know if chiropractors existed in the brickteen-hundreds, but I'm sure that poor book-toting man can find plenty of quacks...

Thank you, Ayrlego, that means a lot! I love giving everything interiors and I'm happy to hear everyone enjoyed the look of it! I'm a complete nut over the old bricks, and it's wonderful to see other people are too!

Thank you, Merc! Now that I look back at the pictures, I do realize how small it looks from them, haha. Glad you enjoyed it and thanks again for the very kind words!

Haha, let's hope he'll be able to recover! Also, you are definitely correct with the cutlasses. Maybe I need to go back to this school...

Thank you so much for your beautiful words though, Dee! :laugh: And when I was looking to get the windows, I was a bit worried about the mad-man, who's currently reincarnating a Great Ball, who's crashing through the brick-market.

Yeah, haven't seen too many BoBS schools so thought I'd give it a shot. Glad you liked it, and thank you greatly for the wonderful words, GR!
