    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    My Natural History Museum is scheduled for delivery today, 8 days before December 1st. Has anyone else received notification of delivery early? I can't wait to get the parts list, so that I can start organizing and Bricklinking to create 3rd floor for this Modular. I probably won't start building until next year. www.ogelsbob.com

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I agree, it looks too short. I have been adding a middle floor to all of my modulars, since Assembly Square. I have already begun selecting pieces from my collection to add a middle floor to the Museum and then I'll order the rest from Bricklink. Sometimes, when placing a taller modular next to a shorter one, I install a billboard or posters on the taller modular, so that the sides will not be exposed.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    For BH, I wanted to add a level and some of the light nougat pieces were not available at the time. Also, I generally prefer to use tan for most of my buildings. I'm thinking of adding another level to BH, so that it will rise above the other modulars near by.

    Thanks again for this rendering. Here is how my Jazz Club turned out, in dark blue, tan, and dark bluish gray. I also added a level.
  5. This sounds like a great idea, but I'm too far along to consider putting the monorail through the Eiffel Tower. After Brickworld Chicago, I think I'll consider a new set up and it might work then. Do you plan to building the new 10307 Eiffle Tower?

    Yes, I modularized the 76218 Sanctum Sanctorum, by adding a narrow extension. What do you think? After building the 2nd level from my own pieces and a few Bricklink orders, I realized that most of the dark bluish gray will not be visible. I replaced the pillar post supports with white and placed it next to Brick Bank. Looks much better, since hardly any of the DBG is visible.

    I agree, the dark grey is not the best for the Pizzeria, but I wanted to place it next to the Brick Bank, which is mostly white and grey. I'm looking for a more coordinated look. I do plan to purchase the full set... it is cheaper than Bricklink-ing for sure. Also, I usually sell certain modulars after they retire, so I need all of the original pieces and packaging to be able to sell it. Whenever the next corner modular comes out, I plan to sell Brick Bank and replace it with the new corner modular. Hope I don't have to change the Pizzeria colors again.
  8. I have now added a Carousel from Winter Village Series next to the Eiffel Tower

    Thank you so much. I really like it. I think I am going to build it this way, but I plan to use white support posts on the Pizzeria. I also plan to add a level. I'm just waiting for the Pizza Delivery Vehicle GWP before purchasing the set.

    I wish I knew how to render the Jazz Club with Dark Blue on the bottom, with tan on top + all Dark Bluish Gray for the Pizza Restaurant. I intend to place the Jazz Club / Pizza in between Boutique Hotel and Brick Bank. If anyone can easily make this render, I'd love to see it before I start building. I have all of the pieces ready.
  11. How do you plan to display Eiffel Tower in your Town? WIP - I have installed a platform and layout in my Modular Town to include the new Eiffel Tower. I built some trees and a monorail station for the 6399 Airport Monorail and added steps from the street level to reach the platform of the Eiffel Tower. I also plan to remove the micro-sized lamp posts and some of the miniature foliage. I think this will help with make the minifigures seem more comfortable in this space, so they don't feel like Gulliver in Lilliput. I also plan to shorten the TV/Media antenna, so that I can fit the Eiffel Tower on a table and in a room with a low basement ceiling. Also, there is a Carousel very close to the real Eiffel Tower, so I plan to install the small Carousel from Winter Village Market (10235) near the Eiffel Tower display. This will balance out the presence of the Airport Monorail station. I would love to hear more about this subject: -How do you plan to display the new Eiffel Tower (10307)? -Will it be part of your LEGO Town or Modular Display? -How do you plan to deal with the micro-sized lamp posts? -Will you make modifications to lower the overall height, so that it will fit inside your house? -What buildings do you plan to display nearby, if any?

    Best town layout software

    "Salti Blati: have you built your town yet? That layout example you posted sounds like it's got some really cool features. Would love to see the real thing if it exists." Yes, I have built several versions of my town, using Excel. I use this method for designing my layout at Brickworld Chicago and for my ever-changing town in my LEGO Room.

    Best town layout software

    I recommend using Microsoft Excel. I have been using this for years. You can adjust the colum width to "6" and the row height to "32" and end up with square cells. I then shade the cells various colors and use borders to delineate various sections. For example each cell represents 8 studs X 8 studs. Hope you find this helpful.

    Notre Dame de Paris Modular building dimension

    Amazing. I was measuring my LEGO room to see where I could build and fit this MOC. It is so huge! I love it. I hope to build it one day.
