    Winter Village Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I think re-releases are great for people who missed older sets. I have them all (WV), so I shall not buy them, even if they have new or updated parts. I just do not want the re-release to come in stead of a new release. Same as with modulars. As long as we get a new release, a re-release as an extra would be great. My point exactly!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Now, being a nerd, that would suit me VERY nicely! Also, the idea of a 16x32 modular is interesting, but in that case, I would very much prefer a release like Pet shop: two 16x32 buildings in one set. But I'm not all too demanding, as long as I get my yearly fix of a new modular.
  3. Isn't that this one? www.brickshelf.com/gallery/marco9999/LDD5/8285_b_tow_truck.lxf Or do I have them mixed up. It is on this page (not indexed yet, so not on the index page); see the comments of the original poster):

    [MOC] BRICK SQUARE POST OFFICE

    That looks brilliant. I love the façades and especially how their distance to the road varies. The centre staircase is teriffic. Favourite part of the interior is the fish and chips shop. Would love to see this in real bricks (and build it myself, too!). Some parts may not be available in the colours you use them in, but that will just take some minor tweaking, I think. Keep clicking those bricks together!
  5. That helps a lot, cheers for that! And thanks for the offer; I'm already a long way with my own reverse engineering efforts, but I got stuck with the roof. I can take it from here. Also thanks to whoever moved my post to this topic; I wasn't sure where to put it. I figured, even though there are no official instructions, at least one person who owns the set must have created an lxf for it. Apparently not
  6. Hmm, I can't seem to find a pdf nor an ldd file for 4000016 Billund Airport. Even on the LEGO site it is not there. It this a rights-thingy? I'd love to build it. Can anyone help? I noticed by the way a new version of this set is on the way (40199).

    [MOC] Food Stand Diners (One for the Rollercoaster fans)

    These are smashing! We'd love to add these to the fairground part of our city (or to the city itself, for that matter; they'd look great just put on the city square). Supported on Ideas. It would be great to see the ldd files to figure out some of the building techniques used. Also looking forward to the modified Shake stand! Best of luck on Ideas, and keep clicking those bricks together. Just wondering: The contents of the gum ball machine does not appear to be LEGO, does it?

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    A gas station/garage/mechanic's shop would be very welcome. This would go very well with the DD style, in my opinion. Other than that, a doctor's practice or chemist's or apothecary would be great. In any style, really. The first modulars were pretty standard, PR marked the beginning of a new style (more detail, smaller buildings, more interior), and maybe DD is another land mark. If I look at cities all over Europe, most businesses would fit nicely in with any of these styles. Hotels, museums and the likes would fit perfectly in the DD art deco style. Exciting!

    [WIP] "Midiopolis" [Midi Scale Lego Modulars]

    Ah, I see what you are trying to do now; reading the topic might be a last resort, but it does help That would make an interesting project. I saw agadoijo had a topic in which he shrunk the standard modulars to a 16x16 base, but they're still more or less minifig scale. Micro scale is too small for any figs, so your proposed scale would be nicely in the middle. I see no examples online. Nice building challenge! A lot of building on a small surface. The three base plates you have on your flickr page look very logical. One could argue about a 3-wide or 4-wide pavement. I might have to put this on our "future projects" list. So many projects, so little time... Good luck! Hope it gets off the ground.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yes, DD has a tendency to provoke a lot of different reactions, as we have seen in the DD topic. Personally, I think it's great. Very nice to build and it looks terrific. It's not my favourite modular, but definitely in the top half. We just put it in our city, and it looks fine. In our experience, it does look better next to the newer buildings (PR and up), though. Can't wait for the 2019 modular. It will be very interesting to see if LEGO will continue this new design line.

    [WIP] "Midiopolis" [Midi Scale Lego Modulars]

    I think there are two major standards. There's the official LEGO modulars (like set 10230) and a lot of MOCs in that standard. They're all 8x8. Search for lego mini modular on flickr. And then there's the Micropolis standard (and derivatives). That looks a lot like the one you suggested in your topic. See here And here And some great examples here Also, search for lego micropolis on flickr. We've been contemplating starting a Micropolis project for ages. Loads of fun, and it takes a lot less space to put on display!

    [MOC] Science Museum

    Ooh, shiny! Brilliantly designed structure and perfectly thought-out details on the inside, too. No idea if this is buildable in real bricks, but I'd love to see it. Keep clicking those bricks together!

    New Century City Block II

    Smashing! Great design and colours overall, and I love the fact that this is actually a 360 degree model, with something to see on all sides. The 45 degree Olofslott façade is a real beauty. Keep clicking those bricks together!

    [MOC] THE QUEEN BRICKTORIA PUB

    This is a lovely design! I think the façade is great, especially the ground floor, and the interior is perfect, with some nice details. The first and second floor and the roof look very good too, slightly reminiscent of Assembly Square. Brilliant! I'd love to see this built, although you might have used some parts in colours that are not available. It's funny how a pub always seems to have an old-fashioned phone booth in front of it Keep clicking those bricks together!

    2018 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Missed that one, thanks! @Kjellevirus Indeed, apparently that is a 2x2. Great parts, both of them. The 1x1 looks more to scale with the minifigs. We could do with a few dozen of these in our city
