  1. Rava Town

    So, it’s been a long time since last Rava Town update. In the meantime new sets, MOCs and MODs arrived in Rava Town. Here we go with the pictures I took a couple of months ago. First of all the expanded version of Assembly Square deserved a good potion in the city with a dedicated new plaza before, not so far from the beach. I added some City Square elements as well (the tram and the stands) and you can see the cinema posters too. The buildings’ line is closed by the Diner (mirror built). Along the same street you can find an extended version of the Park Street Townhouse (31065) and the original and charming version of the Model Town House (6954): creator townhouses form the beginning to nowadays. Here follows a pic from above to have a better idea of the district. I placed the rest of the creator houses (those white with red roofs) all together right at the beginning of the city (near the new airport) in order to create a residential area. Next to the creator houses found its way a new entry: the Forest police Station set (4528), found on Ebay (I just missed it after recovering from my dark age). Not far another new piece: the latest service station (and now we have three gas station in the city! Seventies are past and gone). Behind the creator houses I made an extension to the monorail (a curve plus a self-made piece) and the bus station (in case someone misses the monorail run). The insertion of the bus station and the bus station (60154) and the monorail extention were made possible thanks to a reengineering of the Luna Park area (which now is comprised of the Carousel as well, with new small trains and a Mixer populated by star wars minifigures). The airport got some development too. The old fence of the farm was replaced by a new one and a small pic-nic area was created next to the monorail. A couple of shots from above too. At the end of the airport zone I found a new place for the Ghos House and I created a small sea area, where you see the Old Fishing Store (expanded with a prolonged dock – do you see the hung shark?). It’s the sand green area… This district is far from being completed. I guess I will have to create a sort of embarcadero for the ferry-boat and to add more details for the beach… And the secret thief hideout. No words please. Following it’s my last MOC, the one composed by the Fish&Ship Store and the Dock Inn (at that time the Harbour Towers MOC was still to be completed - Next to it the Destiny Bounty (beautiful!) and the Black Sea Barracude (a dear souvenir of my childhood, surfaced from the waves of time). Behind the skateboard store there’s a new tree making a nice green spot and a movie stage for the latest detective story to come in the Palace Cinema Before you can see how I rearranged the residential district with sea small houses. I got my hands on an old Indy set as well (the motorboats are delicious imo). Here the whole picture from above. Behind the harbour you can find the rail yard where trains can unload and dispatch their goods to Rava Town citizens. On Rava Town hill finds its way the winter village, that, during last winter saw coming both the new train station and the bigger Santa House. You see the city has grown and their inhabitants need more gifts for Christmas. More elves on the work! A bigger snowman as well. At the end some shots from the historical center of the town. No big changes since last time, but some pictures from the above are nice. Last street shots. … and a recap video! More shots on my Flickr account (just re-organized with new albums!) Thanks to everybody and regards Gabriele
  2. [MOC] Harbour Towers

    Thanks! Comment quite clear! I like the colors as well... The exact color of the slope siding is bright light orange (let's say Chima yellow) for the lower tower, tan for the higher tower tower. Danke! (OT: May I ask you what I have to do to insert an image in my signature?) tks Many, many thanks. In the next days I will submit an update in the Rava Town topic! Thanks once more! Glad you liked it!
  3. [MOC] Harbour Towers

    Thanks. In fact I tried to make it somehow intricate! Well, the telescope it's not mine... Actually it belongs to theDestiny Bounty official lego model... Yes it's an astronomer, you're right! Thanks a lot! Very glad to be considered one of your favourite MOCers! I'm working on the next (and probably last) module. It will take a longer time since I still have to choose the proper direction... Thanks a lot, sir! Thanks! Glad you liked the colours' palette. p.s. Please note that the tiled wall next to the entrance of the astronomy shop is medium orange (not bright light orange...). Once more thanks to everybody for your appreciations!
  4. [MOC] Harbour Towers

    Dear all, Here follows the new piece for Rava Town old harbour: the Harbour Towers. The two buildings are mostly reminiscent of Netherlands, with a touch of extreme orient… At the base of the taller tower it’s located an icecream/coffee shop with a balcony under columns to have a nice look at the harbour itself. The initial idea was to create two buildings like Amsterdam, then to make some slight changes to bring the buildings in a more Mediterranean contest (with the usage of brighter colors and some fantasy elements), to include some Japanese elements (to justify the approach for the Destiny Bounty), and to use some new (for me) solutions for the roofs. Actually I wanted to insert South Europe shutters as much as possible. The lower tower is inhabited by an expert astrologist, who manages a little astrology shop at ground floor, and uses the upper floors as his living and refugee to look at the stars in the dark sky of the night. The upper floors of the taller building are owned by the richer merchant of Rava Town. Below the ice cream parlor, under the arches, a small dock makes its way to connect the other side of the harbor to the building on the right (still to be built…) Here’s the back. Last but not least some shots with the entire harbour Here you see where the little green building of the Dock Inn ends…. Comments and advices are welcome! See you next time! p.s. Previous episodes:
  5. --- Bricksonville - City Layout with lights ---

    I like the skyskraper. It’s thin but elegant. I like where you placed it too. good job!
  6. Bluebrick Layout Software

    Hi Alban, I always appreciated your software. My only complaint is not to have new "renderings" of the lego city or train sets produced after 2014. Do you have any plan to update the inventory of set images? Thanks Gabrieel
  7. [MOC] Central Station

    Yes, Now it works. Great job!
  8. Chemist's - MODULAR

    I like your modular a lot. Not easy to make an interesting Modular on a 16x32 plate. It really seems Market Street 2.0! @ Roger Smith - Which is the way to add images to your signature on Eurobricks forum?
  9. [MOC] Modular: Dock Inn

    Yes, of course!
  10. --- Bricksonville - City Layout with lights ---

    Nice, I would like to see more pics from your city layout!
  11. [MOC] Modular: Dock Inn

    Thanks! Thanks! Thanks! I Always try to use some piece from the garbage bin! Glad you appreciated the signs! No fear! I often buy lego sets when discounted and then try to use the pieces available to create something interesting. I will keep posting updates in the next months (a couple of addition are planned at the moment). The building is built in a bizarre way (no standard modular dimensions or approach) as it helps to close a corner and connect to the next building to come. Actually each lego piece finds its way! Thanks
  12. 10255 Assembly Square

    Hi LegoSjaak, Actually it's widen by 6 stud... Should I expand it by more studs, it would become too much big in proportion compared to the rest of the buildings in my city... (Not in your square I guess...) Anyway some pieces left out from my second copy of the Assembly Square will be used to create an additional 16 stud building similar to the sand one but in different colors! See you!
  13. [MOC] Modular: Dock Inn

    Happy new year to everyone, new year and new moc: the Dock Inn. This is my first "corner" MOC (maybe inverted...). The building id comprised of three floors. On the first floor there is the Dock Inn with a small courtyard and a little berceau. At the second floor you can find the rooms for the guests of the inn and at the third floor there is the apartment of the old Captain Nemo, the guy that owns and manages the inn. At the ground floor besides in the courtyard next to the dinner tables for the guests of the inn you can see a little well (maybe used in past days by smugglers). Next to the entrance to the inn there's a sacred niche and the door to the upper levels. On the upper floors the captain with his parrot, big blue windows, elegant flowerpots and a small pergola. What's the use for the suspended small green house? Actually it's not suspended, it's connected with a MOC to come: a build in front of the inn I'm working on. And this is also the cause for part of the dock to be made in red bricks... Here follow some additional pictures where you can see the Dock's Inn linked to the Fish ahn Sea Shop (my previous MOC - Hope you like both of them! Once more, happy new year and let me know your thoughts. : )
  14. MOC: Kahuka's Koffee

    Really like the roof, the chimneys and all the curved lines along the whole structure! Don't mind about three colors thing, since they go together very well! Great job (as usual)!
  15. 10255 Assembly Square

    Hi, a month ago a got my hands on a second copy of Assembly Square. This is my MOD: It's 16 studs wider and built inverted. Still I need to finish some details (bricks of the right colour to find) but I'm quit satisfied with the result. I built it inverted in order too fit properly in Rava Town Hope you appreciate the MOD. See you!
