    Thanks! I didn't even get to sand blue, medium blue or that light blue ...

    [MOC] Old Town Tower

    Love the detailing on these facades, especially the use of the little tan arches on the tower. Well done!

    Thanks! I tried to put what I like too see in a puzzle into the picture and you've pretty much picked up on every aspect of that!

    Thanks! The buildings that are shown in a row are only the facades, but still built in real bricks. The standalone building is also in real bricks.

    Thanks! Technic pins at more points as you suggested should work - I didn't even think of that at the time. Thanks!

    [MOC] Ocean Drive

    It’s been quite a while since I have designed a modular building - none since 2017 actually, according to the my albums over on Flickr!. There have been a few ideas, but they never went further than thought bubbles in my head. Then LEGO Ideas announced the “You’re the final piece” contest to create something that could become the design for a jigsaw puzzle. Jigsaws are what you will often find me doing when I’m not doing something with LEGO, so I knew I wanted to do something straight away. Quite a number of ideas came to mind, the first of which was a nature based one that turned out to be a disaster! Nothing more to be said on that one. Another idea was a set of townhouses. After playing around with some colour combinations, I settled on the different shades of blue, thinking that it looked like the various colours of the oceans around the world. And so “Ocean Drive” became my working title before I had even put two bricks together. The other inspiration was the colourful row houses that you find in parts of London. Particularly, the style of the windows on the first floor (the middle floor for those who are not Australian!). Ocean Drive is a busy street, with the kids currently on holidays for the summer. We have the twin girls being looked after by their grandma, who is about to receive a bunch of flowers from her neighbour. There’s a young boy playing with his cat, a handyman just finishing a job at number 3 and a teenage girl walking her pug. The buildings in this street started off as individual facades, each of them representing a 16-wide modular building. However, I ended up connecting them where there was trim using the 1x8 door rail as they just wouldn’t line up neatly, despite supposedly being the same dimensions! This also meant that they no longer met the modular building standard. Anyway, I couldn’t build a building like this and not have it meet the modular standard, so I made one in Dark Turquoise (arguably the most beautiful LEGO colour!). This is what it looks like as a 16-stud wide modular building: I then got a bee in my bonnet to do up instructions for the individual townhouse. You can download them via Rebrickable. More images available on Flickr. Hope you like it!

    MOC: Juggernaut's Rampage

    No, Lego, don't. Because we wouldn't get those booties otherwise! Awesome writeup.

    MOC: Gotham City Museum Heist

    Awesome build! The brontosaurus, not Mr Freeze, is the real star for me.

    This is beautiful! Love the olive green vine on the main building.
