  1. I never used the wishlist but got the registration mail, too. I guessed it was sent to every VIP who is also registered to accept VIP/S@H newsletters. Anyway, thanks to this mail, I ordered one after all - having changed my mind since I had thought I don't really need it...
  2. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    A brutalist concrete building briefly crossed my mind, too, but I think that would be too gray and generally not as appealing to a wider audience. Maybe less brutalist, more fine lines, but still rather rectangular features?
  3. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Seems one of the blogs was an hour early, ended up in my feedreader, but hid the post again. Well, what's another 36 minute wait. :) Lovely interior of the diner, nice colors with turquoise/white walls and a pink stripe...
  4. [MOC] Grand Palace Hotel

    Again, thanke everyone! I left gaps where I put the partial minifigs. So no easy way to place them elsewhere, as if they were swimming. No. Well, it's got to be a 5-digit number. :)
  5. [MOC] Grand Palace Hotel

    Thanks again, everyone! I don't think they'd ever turn something with a piece count of several Millennium Falcons into an Ideas set. :)
  6. [MOC] Grand Palace Hotel

    Thanks, everyone! The yellow+tan+white color combo looks also great in real life in Montreux. :) And by the way, when I was there and took a photo of the Montreux Palace some years ago, there was one awning stuck on one side like in my MOC. No-one repairing it at that moment, though. Regarding BB2019: It's likely (though not certain yet) that we'll move to the even years, so that would be BB2018 already.
  7. [MOC] Grand Palace Hotel

    Hi everyone, I've been building this hotel off and on over the past couple of years - most of the interior is still not built, but it was ready for display last weekend on Bricking Bavaria 2017: Hotel lakeside 5 (BB2017) by cimddwc, on Flickr Covering 5x2½ baseplates (including pavement and lake), featuring a total of 80 beds in 12 suites, 24 rooms and a group section, plus dining hall (presented earlier here), bar, two conference rooms, sun terrace, pool, gym, sauna, massage, lake access with a small beach and jet skis. Hotel streetside 2 (BB2017) by cimddwc, on Flickr Inspired mostly by the belle époque hotels in Montreux on the Lage Geneva shoreline, and others. In detail: General architecture: Montreux Palace, Suisse Majestic, Eden Palace Au Lac. Main colors: Montreux Palace, Suisse Majestic. Level of decoration: Montreux Palace. Raised ground floor: Eden. Corner turret: Eden. Main entrance: The Langham (London). Dining hall: Salle Empire (Hôtel de Paris, Monaco). Lego inspirations: Some gables by Jonas Wide Partial entrance decoration by eliza Hotel streetside 1 (BB2017) by cimddwc, on Flickr Hotel main entrance 2 by cimddwc, on Flickr Hotel jet skis by cimddwc, on Flickr Hotel sun terrace by cimddwc, on Flickr The interior of most of the basement and raised ground floor is complete: Reception, annual gathering of mascots and advertising characters: Hotel reception by cimddwc, on Flickr Hotel mascot conference by cimddwc, on Flickr Some shady business conference: Hotel business conference 1 by cimddwc, on Flickr Gym, pool, sauna and massage: Hotel gym by cimddwc, on Flickr Hotel pool by cimddwc, on Flickr Hotel massage and sauna by cimddwc, on Flickr » More images on Flickr Future changes will include a complete interior, a detachable side wall (on the left, opposite the dining hall) so visitors can look inside, and probably some lights. Further ideas and comments welcome, of course. Hope you like it. :)
  8. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I think the tiles are mounted on a plate. Looking at the brown plates at the recessed area, the front part is too thick for just tiles. Also it matches the only slight protrusion of the arches above the windows. Could it be Cool Yellow, like someone said? Maybe, I think... but the sides of AS look a bit too yellow, too, so it's hard to tell from this image.
  9. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    There are small creases throughout the entire sky. I don’t see a problem here. Well, I kinda like it. I've been thinking of using that Super Heroes Grils high school for an Art Deco MOC, might look good in a row with this...
  10. Apply Stickers with Window cleaner?

    Huh. Interesting. Window cleaner is generally a good recommendation to remove price stickers from glasses, plates etc. – so I guess using only a little might indeed weaken/inhibit the adhesive enough to work for the described case. Got to try that one day...
  11. Before re-releasing these classics, I'd rather have a tan+dark red InterCity train - a heavily modernized version of 7740 like Horizon Express was for 7745...
  12. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Also not sure if I'm happy about this re-release, but, well, I don't really need it, don't really have the space (like with the Sydney opera), so that's some money saved for all the other Lego I'll buy anyway. Given that this set could be released anytime, it explains why 10256 appears so late, numerically speaking. Oh, and nice announcement video. :) Edit: did they just remove that tweet?
  13. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    2016 stamp, so originally March 2017 release, but postponed? That would actually make sense for 10256, numerically speaking... Then again, if it's a normal dealer catalog, that might be the general release in 2018? Well, we'll see...
  14. Old Town Pub [moc]

    Great indeed! Beautiful colors, architecture and details. 👍
  15. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Maybe they have to produce lots of Millennium Falcons and are delaying the modular by a month or two? (I hope not...)
