    [MOC} New collegiate church of Saint Leonore

    It's not really Amsterdam, have a good look. But Magna Plaza or another post office by CH Peters would be a good idea anyway.

    [MOC} New collegiate church of Saint Leonore

    Both of course. I really ran out of tan bricks, and had still a lot of reddish brown and dark orange laying around, but in reality this was also often the case in the Netherlands. Stone is more expensive than brick, because there isn't any in the Netherlands to find. Look at the New Church on the Dam Square in Amsterdam, where you can see the same.
  3. For Legoworld Utrecht 2020, I decided it was time to built a new church for my Lego town. And so did the town dwellers. So I built a new church. Internal history: Building started around 1300, when the preceding church was elevated to the rank of collegiate church, in keeping with the growth and prosperity of the town. Building started with the radiating chapels of the choir: The old church can bee seen in the background by the way. Building contiued with the cleresory of the choir, wihich was more ornated, and which was ready around 1375. Then building slowed down because of economic problems. Around 1450 the transept was finally built: But the economic problems continued and the town was not able to realise the grand nave of the church, and insted opted for a cheaper nave in brick with wooden vaults, thus foregoing the need for flying butresses. The nave was ready in the year 1530. Because all of the troubles of the 16th century, a tower was never built, however a modest spire was put in the middle. In 1580 a small buioding with a porch for the canons was added. A couple of other pictures, including one of the interior: More pictures can be found here.

    MOC - The church of Saint Leonore

    In 2018 the church was enlarged another time. I extended it with a transept (only on one side) and a clerestory. Here you can see it at Legoworld Utrecht 2018: At the time (october 2020) this church doesn't exist anymore, since it has been replaced by a new church of Saint Leonore. Only the facade of the transept was incorporated in this new church.

    No need for all those fancy post-1980 Lego colours! Very nice modular.

    [MOC] Modular Church

    I like seeing how you've been searching for solutions to the problems that arise when you want to build a church in Lego. I'm currently doing the same and know how hard it is to capture medieval architecture in bricks, much more than classicist architecture.

    But in the Netherlands painting your house teal when it's next to a brick coloured house would be illegal.

    My Lego Town Layout Neu-Brickstadt

    I like the MOC parts of your town. Maybe try to substitute all the sets by MOCs one by one over time? I think the topic starter is from Germany, so he will probably not understand your comment in Dutch. Neither will the majority of Eurobricks members.

    Track Ballast - Ideas needed

    This is how are tracks were ballasted in our diorama for Legoworld 2018 in Utrecht. It's the same principle as Aaron uses but different colours. Prepare to empty your wallet on Bricklink, because this is very, very parts intensive.

    Nice to see that you've finished another nice little building! I was afraid you weren't expanding your town any more.
