    10264 Corner Garage

    Parisan Restaurant was the set that brought me back to Lego. True that, perhaps, we have seen too much, and has used older sets as the benchmark. In any case, there is no good one if there are no average ones. I hope to see a better set (compare to this) next year, else I got a feeling TLG will start to lose fans in this line.

    I feel that TLG might have failed this time in getting new buyers into this line with this set. Unlike older modular sets, I don’t think one would be impressed and decide to buy this from the shelf, given that the list of modular choices available. Only existing collectors, like me, will still get it, despite being not impressive.

    I think the set is okay. Not bad, but not really good either. Not much of those “wow” factors which a creator EXPERT modular line should have as compare to older sets. “Wow” factors for me from the set: Blue bay windows and triangular layout which I believe the designer has put great thoughts into it. Other wow factor missing from the set includes creative and unexpected building technique for roof, interior is pretty plain. Similar to a normal TH set. 1st storey exterior looks good. The tow truck looks good, but I would prefer to keep to 2 seaters front row style type

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Perhaps the garage wasn’t really a car garage. After releasing a last year modular with a vehicle in it, I doubt they would do one with another vehicle so soon. My guess is it might probably be a music garage or something if that list is true.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I remember there is a computer in Town Hall. That’s one of the Modular building which I do not have. That might really create some confusion if we are to consider that computer, noting that that style of computer only exists somewhere in the 1980s. In any case, I am ignoring that computer thingy. My thoughts are more align to the era of the buildings are designed with reference to 1930-1950s. Am trying to add on MOCs of cars for each modular buildings as with reference to 1930-1950s.

    Anybody done a BL 10196: Grand Carousel ?

    I BL mine about a year ago. These are my customisations: Replaced the dark red pieces with red. Cut my own fabric. Replaced the red/blue jester hats with chrome gold helmets. No sound brick and stickers, but I was comtemplating to change the white 1 x 2 x 5 white brick pieces to some transparent coloured 1 x 1 round plates. Replaced the pieces that are hidden inside beneath with a cheaper colour of the same part. e.g technic bricks, axle joints, dark blue jumpers Got the light-bluish gray 48 x 48 baseplate inside of the green one. Used my own minifigs which I have on hand, e.g minfigs from "Fun in the park" set Build my own MOC carousel horses. I do not have pictures, but did a video on it. Have fun bricklinking!

    [MOC] Santa Fe 4-4-2 "Atlantic" Locomotive

    There are a pair of LED lights from the Lego power functions. I do not want keep the other light out of sight, so I route it to the rear to light up the firebox. :) Thank you for the nice comments! Will do some reworks when inspirations come along.. Haha. :) Thank you for the nice comments! Thank you for the likes!! Thank you! Well, I thought it looks aesthetically better with 2 pairs. :) Thanks for the advice!. In any case, it was really hard to find the suitable size o-rings at the place I live...Those are just red rubber bands which fits well too. Black/darker colours would be perfect though. Fantastic feedback! Yes, will do reworks on the boiler jacketing once i have the ideas. Good point there. As for the coach, it was built up as reference to the LNER. You are right, an American Engine shoudn't be pulling a UK coach in reality. Haha. Well, it was made as I have lot of extra reddish brown plates, and internet search came up with this LNER picture. Will probably do a better one in the future. :)
  11. Missed out on the Lego Emerald Night. I reckon that I should build my own steam locomotive instead of getting one on the market. After few months of bricks purchases, precious advice from fellow Eurobrick members(e.g. Motor power functions Torgue, learned about quartering technique), and several rounds of reworks and modification, it is finally completed! Sharing my 8-wide build Santa Fe 4-4-2 "Atlantic" Locomotive, with Cargo Wagon and Passenger Car. Hope you guys like it! Train: Santa Fe 4-4-2 "Atlantic" Locomotive Specs: Engine [8-Wide]. Tender [7-wide], Cargo Wagon [8-wide], Passenger Car [8-wide] Power functions: 1 x XL-Motor, 1 x Power Function Light (Front Lamp and Rear Boiler), 1 x AAA Battery Pack, 1 x IR Receiver, 1 x Extension Wire This is the one of the only few photos of ATSF which I can find for reference during my build:
