  1. [MOC] A new shop in spring

    Thanks, everyone! Indeed! There are some used in Legoland models, so they have been/are being produced anyway, just not available to anyone but the Legoland builders... Well, I think I won't add another one next to these three, but of course I will build more houses. Later. I've postponed cleaning up and sorting for way too long already...
  2. [MOC] A new shop in spring

    Thanks! That silver piece is the little spider from this year's Nexo Knights.
  3. [MOC] A new shop in spring

    Hi everyone, another 16-wide modular building of mine, featuring Spring Yellowish Green as its main color, a shop being renovated (which might open in spring) and an apartment: Well, the color is still a bit too strong for my taste, but it still looks good in this building, I think, and together with the others: Let's look inside - here's the renovation: Similar layout to the Ice Cream Parlor with a child's room and the bathroom of an apartment on the second floor, though this time it's a younger boy's room: Living room with kitchen area upstairs: That goblin statue must be a present from a mother-in-law, or why would they have it in their living room? (Anyway, it's from the Elves set that most of the Spring Yellowish Green parts are from.) And the bedroom in the attic, admittedly with a less than optimal space between roof plates and interior (like what's supposed to be a closet on the left), but, well... » Flickr album Hope you like it...
  4. How was this build?

    That should be part 4081 with its round sides in the wheels' holes.
  5. MOC, Modular Building: Cozy Pub

    Great interior and great exterior indeed!
  6. Adding a change in elevation to a layout

    Correctly assumed, yes. The track needs to be aligned to studs anyway when it's horizontal again (on the higher level), makes a 90° turn and has to fit in with more scenery and houses...
  7. Adding a change in elevation to a layout

    I have the immediate ballast attached to the track pieces, one stud wide beyond the sleepers (so 10 studs wide for a single track), simply placed between the table-parallel scenery which starts with more ballast (1 or 2 studs) - with such a minimal incline, it's hard to notice the difference, and where necessary to avoid gaps, placed another plate under the track ballast. Granted, the track is "stretched" - slight gaps between track pieces so they align with the scenery every 16 studs -, but these are also hard to notice at only 0.04 mm per track piece.with a 1-plate incline (or 0.16 with 2-plate incline). That doesn't add that much to the usual Lego gap of 2*0.1 mm.
  8. [MOC] Ice Cream Parlor

    Yes, well, I got to do something with the door height and/or the gable height anyway since, as has been pointed on 1000steine.de, there's not enough space for a roof between door and gable cutouts... I agree. The only LBG will be the thin line between the white parts - consisting of tiles, and the quarter circle tile isn’t available in many colors yet.
  9. [MOC] Ice Cream Parlor

    What do you think about this facade? The spring yellowish green could indeed be a bit softer for my taste, but I think it still works here... (Ground floor not done yet, I’m considering sand green matching these horizontal lines. And a row or two lower than these makeshift stands.)
  10. [MOC] Ice Cream Parlor

    I got some Cool Yellow bricks left from my Chima Trikes store, and got a few Spring Yellowish Green bricks from cheap Elves sets, should be enough at least for another facade each... Though I'm not sure if that Spring Yellowish Green isn't a bit too strong after all. Well, we'll see...
  11. 2018 Lego Trains

    Yes, German "verraten" can mean "reveal, tell" as well as "betray". Let's hope they indeed release simple adapter cables (and plugs that allow chaining other plugs to make it possible to connect more than 2 things to the controller), and not just offer a set of new motor and new controller/battery box to swap out the old parts from the old trains...
  12. [MOC] Ice Cream Parlor

    Well, yes, I did get substantial inspiration from photos of Amsterdam, but we got fancy gables in Germany too. :) Rounded gables (often higher and on somewhat wider houses) were quite popular right here in Bavaria some time ago, for instance, and the blue house also gets some inspiration from a house in Stralsund (though more pronounced at an earlier stage which I didn't document)...
  13. [MOC] Ice Cream Parlor

    Hi everyone, my latest house: a 16-wide ice cream parlor + apartment in light aqua, not too fancy ;) and using elements from the TLM ice cream machine 70804: The ice cream parlor itself: Batman likes ice, too... Upstairs we have the bathroom and the room of the Ninjago Movie N-Pop girl (who's currently walking in front of the building), using some Friends stickers: Next floor: living room and kitchen: And finally the attic with the parents' bedroom: This is where I originally planned to place it, as a transition in fanciness from left to right: But I think it looks a bit better this way around: Or maybe I'll add another narrow building in between, instead of something bigger to the right... Anyway, » here's the Flickr album. Hope you like it...
  14. Matt's Masks - a modularized Simpsons house

    Everyone else, please note that this is several years old. :) Sorry, I don't have instructions nor parts lists. Making them would be way too much work - especially with sorting taking away too much time from my spare time I have for Lego anyway...
  15. Chemist's - MODULAR

    Amazing architectural details with a nice color scheme! Well done!
