    [MOC] Modular Clock Tower Square

    Awesome MOC, @Giacinto Consiglio! Some really bold design choices throughout. The first thing I noticed were the very surprising colours you've given to both the left and the right buildings and while it's definitely something I wouldn't have even tried, they look rather awesome! I really like the shaping of all the buildings, the left one is very cool and shows me that Lego towers can look amazing. I really like the Bartizan tower and is white accents, but I feel like it's a bit out of place in this model, especially how it abruptly ends on the ground floor. The building on the right has a very unique shape and reminds me of certain half-timered homes. It certainly has a lot of charisma! The detailing is at bit bizarre, but works for the layout even if I wouldn't have gone for it. I'm generally not a big fan of towers in modulars but yours sort of brings Big Ben to a modular house block by using sort of a neo-Gothic architecture. I really like the fact that you've put a little tunnel next to it with a passageway between buildings in the middle! I love it! It's thing I want to put in an upcoming model of mine. Reminds me a little bit of the Ponte dei Sospiri in Venice. It is overall very reminiscent of Assembly Square and to other MOCs that take it as inspiration (such as Old Town Pub by @lookl) but has a very unique spin to it. A great model! Whoop! Almost forget! Your rendition of an ice cream parlour is much better than my poor attempt in "A Summer in Tuscany"

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Hadn't though of that. Could very easily be either. I'm almost certain one will be a rerelease but the other one with the "car" tag kind of puzzles me. We'll see!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Set 10266 is being listed on Pricevortex (www.pricevortex.com) as "10266 # LEGO Creator Expert Discovery (D2C). The first thing that came to mind was a space shuttle similar to 10231 or 10213, any ideas anyone?

    [MOC] BRICKS & BLOOMS - GARDEN CENTRE

    Great model! Really have had a good time browsing through the images and the details. I will admit that my first thought was that this did not appear as striking as your Post Office probably due to the layout not being as daring. The ground floor is beautiful, especially the garden center's: the oval steps up, the blue awnings (AS reference? ) and (I believe) a sunflower). The design is very well finished off and very stylishly solves some of the things I didn't quite like with the Post Office. This pops much more in a small image than your previous did, which gives it an imposing appearance. I like the theme of the interiors too, I'd never seen anyone tackle something of that sort. Plus, your renderings are getting really good, although I can't quite see how you built the cornice of the main structure (you know, rooflines are my favourite bit to design and have a huge library of custom designs to be used for future models) so I'm interested in how other people tackle them. Great job!

    [MOC] Corner Tower House

    Really good! Colour schemes work brilliantly and I think that the tower looks great (could have looked a bit out of place just poking out of the roof). Really really like that the roof is kind of shallow, it gives it a rather unique touch. Without anything being too dramatically flamboyant, I think you've pulled off a real stand-out!

    MOC: Lighthouse

    That looks really good! I particulary like the "simplified" but very clean look your town has. Looking forward to seeing more from you!

    Thanks! I think I striked the balance right between an evocative design and something that is just bananas. Sorry for the late response, I guess, "happy new year" is more appropriate!

    [MOC] Disco 2000 Vinyl Store

    No matter what it is, I'm glad you like it! In fact, I'd done (if I recall correctly) ten different designs for that part of the model. It's funny how from the sketch I made when I began making it, the only surviving part is the ground floor. Merry christmas!

    Ideas for CMFs

    Amazing! Every new series from Lego I get the feeling there's not much more that has not been done, but I'm always proven wrong by you! Both the "Pizza Man" and the "Amusment Park Guy" are awesome and probably the best. I'm still stoked Lego hasn't produced the hat from the Gondolier, here awesomely reused. I love Lady Justice too. QuinceaƱera's hair and your verison of David's Napoleon are pieces I absolutely adore. Beyond particular cases, I absolutely love your continuous pursue of originality but of fesibility too. Your work is spectacular! I designed a custom Bowie figure for my latest modular and boy I've learnt to appreciate work like yours better!

    [MOC] Disco 2000 Vinyl Store

    Thanks @LEGO Train 12 Volts! The closest anyone had got to conveying the "glass and iron" architecture of the Belle Epoque is maybe Lego with BB, although it still is very off. I kind of wanted to turn Guimard's parisian metro entrances into a building and that's what I ended up with . So glad you love it! Thanks a lot! The interior is not based on any shop in particular, I just "copy-pasted" bits and pieces I liked from different ones. In fact, the red arched exterior of the shop is inspired by the metro entrances of the Northern Line. I very glad you like and and hope you found some inspiration here and there

    MOC Lego Town sized vehicles

    Amazing models! I personally prefer them with the fenders and mirror, but having two passengers is also nice. I would be great if you could find a balance!

    [MOC] Disco 2000 Vinyl Store

    Hello everybody! I just wanted to show you one of the many iterations I did for this building (in fact, the second-to-last one and the only one rendered !). There's some peculiar last-minute changes I made that are rather fun to spot. I thought all the changes were for good then, but looking at the image again last week, I couldn't help but think I should've sticked to the roofline I had for the white/dark blue/flame yellow part.

    The Car Wash

    Hey, @paokus! You've been getting a lot of love from my dear EB companions in the topic "Inspirational Modular and Castle MOCs" topic that @LegoModularFan set up. It's funny how, although we are from the same country, your style and mine of making modulars is entirely different. In fact, in the past I've not been too keen on your models, but I might rethink my position. Your last three are good. Hope to see more of your stuff here!

    MOC: The Magnolias On 10th Apartments

    I aslo don't really like this kind of architecture, but the shaping and the nice colours you've put in look great. The section where Dark Blue, Dark Orange and Olive Green meet is absolutely superb. Awesome job!
