  1. This is absolutely fantastic. I'm a naval architect and this is the best ship model I've ever seen in Lego!

    Marvellous! I had to think of theBlack Dahlia (hardly a lego topic ;)

    £If it costs 189€, I expect it to contain 2655 pieces!

    I basically agree. I've been to the States twice. Each time I didn't have a car and I took a city bus. San Diego and Virginia City. They are not bus minded. Very weird experience. I ended up walking miles. Having said that, i just bought the three story Harry Potter bus. I'm curious about the three brick wide windows.

    I think that a Chinese restaurant is a good guess. I've been wanting to make a MOC of a Chinese restaurant for a while now, but I never seem to have time. Quite a few eastern themed sets have come out recently and they clearly were appreciated worldwide.

    Hi, thanks for your replies. I also saw that one this morning... Now that I look at all the pictures again, I'm pretty sure it was indeed this one. Strange how your memory can play tricks on you. I thought that what I saw a while ago, was purely a combination of two sets of 31097 with a 32x32 footprint and I thought it was a different kind of building. But I also remember that it said something about apartments, as it does here. So yeah, I think it was this one. Anyway, I enjoyed building 31097. It's good for parts and I think it's a good way to introduce kids to the modulars. Lego has come such a long way since I was a kid in the early 80s with all the different colors and so many more different kinds of bricks. I've recently come out of my dark age and I often wonder if it's not too overwhelming for kids to create something themselves nowadays, but that's another topic ...

    Hi guys, Apologies if this is not the right place to post this, but it's driving me nuts. I am building 31097 and I remember I recently saw a really nice MOC, which combined two sets of 31097 to make a nice modular sized building. I've searched every site that I might have visted over the last month (eurobricks, brothers brick, ...), but i just can't find it anymore. I came across the modern living house on rebrickable this morning, but that wasn't it. Anybody has an idea what I'm talking about and where it might be?

    I've been hoping for a garage in a modern style to go next to the dinner. I think I'd prefer just two floors (on the left) with a larger 48x32 footprint that could still form a corner modular.

    I really appreciate the dedication to your dad. Amazing creations on your flickr account! Very inspiring.

    It would make perfect sense to me - Garage / petrol station would be great on a 32 x 48 layout.

    Yes yes yes! I'm sure, this would look great next to the diner. I was playing with this idea for a MOC, but I have yet to start.

    Marvellous! I had to laugh when I saw that guy applying green paint in the vase modelling class. He seems very enthusiastic Very very nice.

    In our lakeside town, there isn't a lot of crime. A lot of pets go missing and suitcases get mixed up, but Ace Brickman is really good at solving these cases. The cop isn't much use - she's almost always at the hairdresser's. She does give out a lot of fines to the fancy sports cars that go over the speed limit. So, thankfully, no need for a police station in this peaceful town. A museum or a garage / car mechanic, though, would be really welcome.

    Well said. I like DD. I very much enjoyed building it with some interesting new techniques and I think it looks great next to AS or DO. After 10 years, I'm glad they're moving on to a more modern style of architecture and I hope they will continue on this path. It was mentioned somewhere that you have to see it as a traditional building that was renovated to house a very modern diner (I think it was in a recent interview with Jamie https://zusammengebaut.com/interview-mit-jamie-berard-achterbahn-diner-taj-mahal-und-co-51257/ I can't listen to it right now). This mish mash doesn’t seem to appeal to a lot of people, but you do see it a lot in real life. The beauty of the arches would probably have stood out better if it had been a corner building. Maybe it would have been better to just have a drastically modern building.

    I agree ! When the DD was released, I immediately thought it would be great next to a automobile repair shop / petrol station. It could look really great. With two nice cars added in. I thought the car from the DD was great actually. 1. automoble repair shop / petrol station 2. museum 3. post office would be my favourites
