    Help with identifying parts/sets!

    Looks (on the actual tin plate) like a trans-red "boat stud" 2654 to me, followed by a 32270 gear, though that would be problematic to attach. Maybe a trans-red disc which has a hole, though the gap at the bottom of the black plate looks filled with trans-red.

    [MOC] Apartment Block House

    Hi everyone, Here's my latest building, a house consisting of multiple blocks in different styles, containing the Lego apartment sets (and more), at the foot of a little mountain that is yet to be built: Let's look inside. There's a tool shop on the left and model toy shop on the right: The tool shop's back room is for special customers only... Downstairs combines a (probably unlicenced) bar (a Star Wars set), a bathroom (a Harry Potter set), and the tool shop owner's apartment (a Marvel set with added bedroom), as well as more of the model shop: The model shop has a good selection for model train fans. (The trains are mostly from older City advent calendars.) Second floor combines a modified Seinfeld apartment and one decorated mostly with leftover furnitures from other sets: Third floor contains the Friends apartments, squeezed a bit. A strange combination with one shared bathroom, big living rooms with kitchens, but they have to sleep on the sofas... Top floor houses a (rearranged) Queer Eye apartment: In its place behind the older small houses: My original idea was to have the blocks go all way along the long side, with long staircase and only one apartment per floor, but that was way too big and too dominant: So I had to make it consist of smaller blocks and 1-2 floors lower, which also allowed me to add two more colors and styles. » Album on Flickr

    Well, you can clip onto the flotation ring/toilet seat 30340, but only in straight direction, and obviously not where the stud is.

    Straight tracks closer together than eight stud gap?

    Well, two standard curve tracks shift the track by 6 studs, but are about 1 1/4 studs shorter than straights, so unless you can accommodate for that in the entire setup, it doesn't help; 8 pieces of flex track stretch to the proper length with a 4 studs shift without noticeable stress (I'm using this in my setup), but have all the disadvantages of flex tracks. I'm not aware of third-party solutions for this, but would also be interested... If the two tracks come around a corner on both ends of the station - not very realistic in real life, but maybe necessary in a small Lego setup -, you can of course use a single flex track piece or third-party quarter straight before the curve.

    [MOC] Somewhere over the french streets

    Really beautiful! Lots of great architectural and interior details!
  7. Hi everyone, as I said in the "Café, Fashion, and more" post, the market square should soon be finished - here it is: A busy market square on a Saturday afternoon... with two birch trees (after all, my town is called Port Birch), and a monorail station. There's a lot going on: A promotion for some Ninja game (from Ninjago market place); since there's a Star Wars convention in town, there are always some cosplayers around for taking photos with them; a wedding (comes with the Town Hall set, anyway); a hot dog cart. The statue's from a set, the masked saxophone player is fom Vidiyo, more hotdogs, and more people. The trees trunks, by the way, are built around a long Technic brick so I can use them as handles to lift this module. Wavy glass roof on the monorail station - not the most practical thing when it rains from certain directions, but, well, it's art... And a rock wall to the side (not really part of the market square, but I include it in this album anyway) featuring a sawn-up monorail straight as slope extension, small buildings from a Monkie Kid set, the Hidden Side shrimp shack, remainders of Ninjago City and Docks... ...and a mirror "monolith" (anyone still cares about those that popped up in various places some time ago...?), and some sort of art project/escapist refuge where you can live in a cave for one month for free. » Flickr album

    Thanks, everyone! Well, it's always a compromise anyway. The exterior proportions are smaller than in real life, so either I make properly sized rooms with an apartment spanning two or more full floors, or I make the interior smaller and more cramped. In this case, I chose the latter to get more different functions inside. Sometimes noticing "Oh, i forgot this item", making it even more cramped than intended...

    [MOC] Café, Fashion, and more

    Hi everyone, my latest building: A modular "double double house", i.e two parts with different facades on front and back. DD fronts by cimddwc, on Flickr Featuring a fashion store, a small ice cream parlor, a café, a waffle shop, and some offices and apartments. And parts of the Winter Village Fire Station set's facade. Possibly the smallest ice cream parlor in town, but, judging by the queue, also the best: Geometry fun fact: the square root of 49+49 is nicely close to 10: The outdoor part of the café continues next to the neighboring building: Inside: Latest fashion from the Beauxbatons collection, a café using parts of an old Friends set, the little ice cream parlor, and the waffle shop uses another Friends set: Upper floor of fashion store: orange astronaut fashion is all the rage; and a lawyer's office in the dark red half: A financial advisor inhabits one side - white-haired customer is waiting, the assistant sits in the middle, and the advisor with a big gold clock in her office. The other half is a small single-room apartment (but still expensive right next to the market square) - the woman apparently doesn't enjoy the TV program as much as her boyfriend, but luckily she got hold of the remote: And on the top floor, there's an apartment spanning the full depth - and the orange astronaut fashion is being produced here in home work: And finally the parents' bedroom under the roof, plus a roof terrace: The narrow part features a small and cramped robotics workshop (an old Friends set) and an apartment spanning two floors. (Seems something was forgotten in the inaccessible space under the stairs...): Between the neighboring buildings, the round pharmacy on the left and the old "Atlantis-style" City Bank on the right: Maybe I should spice up the side windows of the pharmacy a bit. Same buildings on the other side, facing the market square, which will hopefully be finished soon: » Flickr album Hope you like it...

    The first part looks like leaves of 30176 broken off.

    Great! Both the architecture and the interior details. (Though I thought the "messy room" would be messier. ;) )

    Great! Nice architecture and nice details, and lots of them since it's so big.

    Modern high-rise building (corner facade)

    Ah, yes, I think I never showed that here in detail. I'm working on filling the gap next to it (and the two to the left are new, too), so I'll show it a bit closer soon.
