    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.

    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.
  9. 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.

    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.

    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. :)
  15. 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!
