  1. How to Design a Modular or a Non-Modular Building?

    Thanks, very glad you like them and looking forward to seeing some of your MOCs.
  2. [MOC] A new shop in spring

    Your three 16 wide buildings really blend well together. The spring/yellowish green is a very pretty colour and works well with this architectural style. I like all the details in the boys bedroom. Great build.
  3. MOC, Modular Building: Cozy Pub

    Fantastic build. Really like the interesting part uses throughout like the vehicle mudguards used on the chairs by the fire , the printed brick sidewalk and so many others. Great car as well. Interesting comparison to the real life building with its four arches on the first level and thus seeming more symmetrical than your MOC where my eye is drawn more so to the second story and the wonderful brick built windows..
  4. How to Design a Modular or a Non-Modular Building?

    Not mentioned on the list but thought I might add my process because it is slightly different from others. Many of my builds actually are conceptualized from the interiors out. I hope that my buildings have a story and that usually involves a detailed interior like many miniature dollhouses. I draw inspiration for the buildings from events, holidays, or favourite places or stories that may or may not resemble any actual buildings. I build only through trial and error using bricks. Lots of time has been spent on Bricklink to find the right parts, and looking at others creations online to see how they created architectural details like shingled roofs, clapboard siding etc. There are so many wonderful MOCs out there with so many different techniques used.

  5. Thanks very much! I would love to share the model instructions with others but none really exist. Not exactly sure how to go about creating building instructions in that I build directly with bricks through trail and error rather than digitally first. Maybe sometime in the future I will figure out a way to do it.

  11. Gigantic Christmas Village

    This is my favourite Lego winter village display that I have seen. The buildings are fantastic and very cohesive. Love the village lit at night. Beautiful.
  12. Thanks Andy, I should credit others from whom I drew inspiration for some of these creations. The rocking horse is modified from those created by Matt Armstrong aka monsterbrick. The tractor is modified from a design by Jason Allemann aka JK Brickworks. The toy soldier and locomotive are modified from ones found in TLG ’s Toy Workshop. The helicopter and jack in the box are from TLG’s Winter Toy Shop. The cars and truck are also TLG designs. Credit should also go to Thorsten Bonsch aka Xenomurphy for his typewriter design.

  14. What is Town Forum to you?

    The town forum is the theme I check out and post on most frequently. I really enjoy checking out both the large and small MOCs. So much inspiration. I like the seeing the Winter Village themes layouts and creations at this time of year. I try to comment on many MOCs but it is difficult to comment on everything. I really appreciate the comments I receive both good and constructive. The number of views on TLG sets shows that this is a popular part of the theme for many people although I am personally more interested in other AFOLs creations.
  15. MOC Sidewalk

    Very nice! Really like the bird's nest, clock and lamppost. The minifigs used are great. "Interesting" clue that Sherlock is checking out.
