  1. What is Town Forum to you?

    I'm a modular person. Mostly I come here to share modular MOCs and see modular MOCs. I also look for the names of some favorite builders and check out their threads regardless... just because I know whatever it is will be amazing. I like Winter Village too and usually check those out. Sometimes I look at cars/planes etc., but they're just not as interesting to me and I'm less likely to comment. I haven't been here as long as some, but there does seem to have been a drop off in the number of quality MOCs in the last couple of years. I think more modulars is to blame. You can have a pretty full town by just buying Lego modulars now.
  2. This is so fun... thanks CopMike! Got a little artsy with mine.
  3. [MOC] Somewhere in Sweden during the 70s

    Very cool... conveys a great sense of time and place.
  4. MOC: Modular Surf & Ski Shop/Travel Agency

    Thanks! Red and blue weren't my first choice of color combo, but that front window build required a very specific set of pieces so color choices were restricted. It also makes me happy to use up some of the brighter colors in my collection once in a while...not everything can be tan and gray. :)
  5. [MOC] Modular: Town Bed & Breakfast

    Wonderful! The style of this building is unique and you've really packed it with story and detail. I like that you pay as much attention to the mini-figure characters as the building itself.
  6. Winter Village diorama 2017

    Beautiful layout! The train really adds a sense of fun and excitement. I love the tunnel.... makes it feel like it's own little world.
  7. MOC: Modular Surf & Ski Shop/Travel Agency

    Thanks for the great comments everyone! It was tricky working out the angled windows for the 16 wide format. For those interested in technique, the windshields work really well - with more design flexibility - with larger window pieces. Here's a storefront "sketch" I made while working out the details for the shop. Don't know if this one will every be a modular. Yeah, I have some old space and technic pieces (80s and 90s) in my collection. Isn't that one of the great things about Lego? Those old pieces are still completely compatible. I know I have another 1x1 white tile piece somewhere... just need to buckle down and go through one of my post-project needs-to-be-sorted bins. :) Thanks! Made me realize this is my 9th 16wide MOC. I've only done one 32wide that I actually finished. I am modding the corner buildings from Assembly Square to be proper full-size corner modulars and they seem HUGE since I'm used to working in a tighter space. :)
  8. My latest modular is a Surf & Ski Shop with a Travel Agency upstairs. Detail of the shop windows: First floor interior: Travel Agency on the 2nd Floor: (First time making my own decals.) Finally, next to my Kitchen Store for size comparison. Thanks for looking!
  9. MOC: Crown Castle Adventure Golf

    It's adorable! Nice use of crossbow bolts for the castle gate. Your baseless, organic-shape base looks brilliant to me.
  10. Winter Green Grocer [Winter Village MOC]

    Very cute... and fits the Winter Village theme perfectly. I particularly like the well. It's a nice detail.
  11. HA(ppy) (mo)UNT(ain) Abandoned Theme Park

    Fantastic! Great theme and really well done!
  12. I start by looking at photos of buildings or walking around a city with interesting buildings on Google Earth looking for inspiration. When I see something unique, I'll add the photo to a bin on my desktop. Then sometimes I scroll through the photos and think about how something might be accomplished with lego pieces and start trying out ideas with actual bricks. So, I have buildings in the works now that are like this: This is an office building that I want to build, but right now it's just a window unit. Here is a storefront idea that I'm noodling with. It's just a "sketch" right now and there is a lot to work out if it's going to become a proper building. I usually have several projects that are in various states of build like this. Sometimes bits sit for months before I know if they are going anywhere. Sometimes an idea will come from a lego piece. I did a crowbar fence in my most recent modular, but I had the idea ages ago. I guess I'm a very non-linear builder because I will build up or down from wherever the idea started.
  13. What a great project for you to do together! I think this is an excellent first MOC modular. Lots of great details and atmosphere.
  14. MOC: Modular Townhouse with Shop

    The middle parts are attached to the top of the windows, the bottom of the cornice, and the exterior gray wall. Since it's double thick that makes it pretty secure.
  15. MOC: Modular Townhouse with Shop

    Thanks all! Here are some photos of the facade broken down: And here's that 3rd floor interior you are seeing. This isn't 100% complete and some pieces (like the extra studs by the TV) are still substitutions since I don't have the right piece yet.:
