  1. Looks great! The colors work surprisingly well. The roof on the dark red building is really interesting and fun. I also like the way the balconies are staggered.

    Looks fabulous! Coming up with new techniques is my favorite thing about building. Love the way you've done the curved display window and entrance on the middle building.

    Fantastic! What a whimsical and fun design. Looks like something from a Studio Ghibli movie.

    MOC: The Brixton Hotel

    Perfect as always. That floor is beautiful! The colors and that patterns are brilliant. Also really love the luggage cart design with the flexible hoses.

    MOC: Modular Bookstore

    Thanks! The angled window is a clear wall piece and a windshield turned sideways. It's actually relatively simple to do. It's always bothered me that books in bookshelves are usually done with flat ends. I've been sitting on that handlebar book technique for a long time. I usually make 16-wide modulars and the size of the bookcase never fit well. Finally did a 24-wide so it HAD to be a bookstore. :) You should try mixing colors. The truth is I didn't have enough dark gray slopes in my collection to do the entire roof. I was going to have to order more pieces, change colors, or mix something in. I wasn't sure about using the dark tan with the dark gray because the shade is so far off. It didn't really work until the outside lighter gray framing was complete. Now I'm very happy I went with it. I made parents, but I forgot to drop them in before taking photos. I guess child services will be showing up soon. :) Thanks! Yes, I was very excited to use that piece. Brickset calls it "4652060: Tool Belt - 17M". I wish I had more than one because it's also flexible and I can imagine other uses for it.

    MOC: Modular Bookstore

    My latest modular is a 24-wide Victorian building with a Bookstore on the first floor and apartment on the upper floors. Detail of the storefront: Detail of the upper floors: Bookstore interior: Upstairs interiors: Thanks for looking!

    Terrific! Some great details. I really like the corner display window. Also great use of the newer curved tile pieces.

    Amazon/Target sales

    I've noticed that Target usually puts sets on clearance in late August... clearing the shelves before stocking for the Christmas season.

    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.
  12. This is so fun... thanks CopMike! Got a little artsy with mine.

    Very cool... conveys a great sense of time and place.

    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. :)

    [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.
