    LEGO VT 11.5 Trans Europ Express (TEE)

    Amazing! I've never really comented on any train thread but the TEE is an absolute favourite of mine an I coudn't help. On a first look, it felt like I was seeing a Marklin model (definitely a good thing) and then as I scrolled down and read to how many lenghts you went to cover up all the gaps and integrating all the windows, I just fell in love. Superb job! Pau

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Interesting. On Pricevortex they're listing SIX Creator Expert sets for 2019. 10264 through 10269. 10264 might be the landmark, 10265 the modular, 10266 the vehicle, 10267 the winter village set, 10268 the rerelease @TheLegomane's mentioning and 10269 a fairground set, maybe?

    What would that be, PR/DO/BB/DD size?

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I did a small pharmacy for my latest models. Certainly not an interior that works for a big space, but a small wooden counter and hundreds of bottles around it might look fine. Waht funny interior combos could they do? Like Bank/Laundromat or Cake Shop/Dentist? I've just realised that 2019 is Landmark year following the 2013-2016-2019 trend, but since the Taj Mahal was rereleased, I'm not so sure about it.

    I honestly prefer their current style. Shorter but overall more rounded and finer designs (most the times). I've tried with my own modular MOCs, a building similar in size to GG with full interiors/easter eggs and all that sort of thing goes to about 3500-4000 pieces. The Diner was already made a very skinny modular (I have no problem in that at all) for it not to have a huge piece count. According to the trend, this year is "corner year", interested in how they'll make it good without it being too part heavy.

    [MOC] Post Office & Art School

    Love it! To me looks like an improved version of your last model, the Minerals Shop. It has a similar structure, but almost everything is a tad better. Yellow is just awesome, I too (two years ago) was looking at the Lego palette and thought: "Why haven't they done a yellow building?", I've two now, but yours is entirely different from my takes. The detailing in tan makes me think you took some inspiration from Paris, then sprinkled Lego madness everywhere. The interiors are nice too. I love the post office's counter and especially the sign so good! Now I see you've totally transitioned to making buildings in this new style, looking forward to your future experiments. Oh, I love the wrought iron fence on the first floor balcony and the 1x1 plates with clips as columns! Just wondering, why did you use two different render engines? I believe the first image is done with Pov-Ray and the other four with Blender

    Tips for MOCing a Modular?

    You could build a building similar to one of the halves in the Pet Shop. My recommendation with a small footprint would be to know exactly what you're aiming for, choose a building with personality and try to recreate it. San Francisco townhouses could work brilliantly, or look at central european houses (Berlin, Prague...), those can be brilliant, or maybe something from Amsterdam, ideal for a 16x32. I would really recommend choosing something that has a prominent architectural feature, eg. a special curve on the top floor and remember, the top floor defines the look of the building, work very hard on it! Just thought of it, you could have smaller buildings (even as small as 6-wide) with windows (similar to my Klee Corner) Really nice popular architecture that's properly good in this great account:

    Indeed. I would add that it's so technically ambitious and glorious that it might just take the charm off the other "European" modulars you're mentioning. Note though, that DO to me has a much more American feel and is still very charming.

    Certainly very good in terms of techniques, them covering the floor gaps for the first time is something pretty amazing, but... architecturally speaking I just find it boring.

    I like for them to experiment, but DD is just an absurd mess. Mike I think just didn't know how to pull off an interesting façade with nooks and crannies to fill with life. DD to me feels a bit stale.

    [MOC] Modular bookstore/antique store

    Nice model. There's some things I would change to improve it a little, for instance, the blue roof's corner should be more prominent, it should look like it's the main thing calling for attention. The windowing is a bit strange, but cool. I think you got the colours and the details mostly right, now only the shape could be a little bit better The black roof's technique is awesome!

    The front is bananas! Absolutely love it! Great job!

    That would be pretty great, actually. A pair of new scissors for Mr. Al! For a record store, though, they could to mini brick-built recreations of real life albums and let us guess which they are, so it could have very interesting furniture.

    First Modular Building

    I personally have my modular collection on shelves. The last I've bought is Parisian Restaurant exactly for what @Bricked1980's said, didn't want to miss it before they retire it. Having siad that, the build feels a bit dated now and there's countless things they just wouldn't do right now. It's still marvellous to look at having it sitting next to DO is pretty cool. You know, PR's right opening and DO's shorter left building form a pretty nice architectural landscape. I don't own AS, but it's the one I've wanted since it came out, I'm dying to get my hands on it. To my eyes is the most complete modular, although at a cost. Honestly, my first one was DO and I'd totally recommend that one as a starter, but really it doesn't really matter which you choose because you'll just have to expand . I would say either Parisian Restaurant, Detective's Office or Assembly Square. Brick Bank and Downtown Diner, maybe for later Hope it helps
