    My city story

    Hello ! I’m back here to share with you some new pics of my city diorama. With covid and the fact that we can’t have some guests at home, I decided to use the table of the dinning room as display for my city. I can’t remembered the last time I took it out of boxes, with cars, furnitures and cityzens with urban life. Even if my table is relatively big, it is not enought to put all my modulars on. So I have to make some choices, and decided to put all my creations first and official ones in a second time. After that choice, I try to mixt them to have some nice arengement in therme of architecture and colours, making this mess pleasant to look at. It was time tu put the roads and start to make it alive. And this was the first time that I put my new street furnitures down the street. In fact, I have made a quick review of my street furnitures the past, but I have made a lot of modifications, making those details more frenchy (parisian). Here a picture of those items : I put some cars, some cityzens, few urban animals, made some all-day life scenes everywhere... So, few hours later, my city is readdy to go ! Unfortunatlfy, the pictures are not as good as I want, because of bad lightening (not big sunshine during winter here I lived…). Here a general view to see the size : And here some other views : And here the whole gallery for more ^^.
  2. I can't remembered the last time I have created a new topic here. Even if I'm not posting a lot on EB, I'm still here and into LEGO and particularely into modular buildings. So here I will show you some pics of my latest creation. This modular is inspired by a "art nouveau" house from my city, thta I really love, the Villa Majorelle. I have sceduled to make a LEGO version of it from a very long time, but didn't take the time to do so. The last period of pandemic gave me the opportinuty to spend time with my beloved bricks. So good to moc again! What a challenge that villa was! Making art nouveau with LEGO bricks is not easy, but I like challenges. And this house is very special, with so many details everywhere. So I tried to capture its spirit in a modula buidling that can be insered in my layout (I have made some compromises). Here we go for few pictures : And finally, a picture showing the villa in a layout :
  3. Thanks! I'm always here, but not so active in topics and I don't have as many times as before to build as I would like ^^. Yes, I like to give some space for pedestrian mminifigures ^^ . So, there are some spaces for furnutures, doing some micro stories, and have a better view of buildings.
  4. So, after some tries and tries, I think I have finalised my city furnitures. Good by grey square style ad welcome more parisian style for all : It lakes some parts in black (bus station, pedestrian lights), but the spirit is here.
  5. Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated!
  6. Hey! During this time at home because of Covid19, I have decided to create and to change my bus stop. My first version looks too big and bulky and would like something thinner. So, after 2 days working on it, I came up with two prototypes : all the pieces are not in the write color for now, I need to buy extra pieces. But before doing that, I want to share them with you to have some feedback : what is your favorite version? What do you like or note, how to improve it? First, some pictures with the 3 iterations. The first version is the white one. And now, a closer look at one prototype : And the last prototype :
  7. I've got mine yesterday ^^. Thanks a lot @CopMike for the raffle, organisation, and the manatees!
  8. Thanks a lot for Copmik and this funny contest !
  9. I juste need to buy my christmas tree to put my santas in !
  10. Glad to help you. Just tell me if you need more ^^
  11. Hello, Here's a picture t show you how the trees are mad. Like Vindicare said, I use some 5 prong flower stem piece & 1x1 snot bricks (a lot of them for one tree!) on big foliages. You will see how those foliages are attached. Each face of tree is made by twi big foliage, and only one on top. Everything is legal here and doesn't move, it's quite sturdy. Hope that will help you ^^

    Making Eurobricks More Active

    I'm find and still here event if I'm not as active as before. So I will answer the questions asked : Would you like to see more contests? Yes, evenif I don't have all the time I want to enter those contest. What is your opinion of Tags (those small images on the left <---)? Don't have any opinion about them. Do you use, if ever, Eurobricks reference materials (ie. lists of Reviews, lists of MOCS, lists of Forums)? Lists of review is very usefull. And alsow lists of MOCS, if they are from good quality. Have you participated in games on Eurobricks (ie. Role-Playing, Mafia, etc.)? I have participated to one game like that, and it wad funny. Do you use/visit the Eurobricks Facebook page? Eurobricks on Flickr? etc. No facebook for me at all. Flickr not too. I don't like social app like that. Do you post MOCs online? What hosting platform do you prefer to use? I still use Brickshelf, old style! Do you prefer broadly defined threads or multiple specialized threads? multiple specialized threads What is the first page you visit when opening Eurobricks on your browser? The index page Personnaly, I have less time to go on EB. I was more active when I was student. And all the people with wich I speak here seem to be in the same situation. So, I don't know the newer member. And with the smartphone and all those apps, It seems that the discussions in general are not as constructive than before. Maybe it's just an impression. And last, because I don't come often here, I don't write in english, and I lost a lot in that. It's harder for me to think abour how to write properly. All in all, I'm still an EB lover, where I discovered the LEGO online univer, other AFOLS, during my study, when I didn't have my real bricks with me!^^ I'm still mocing my town, with some inspiration moment and other period without envy to MOC. I often think about posting some new pics to share my work, but I don't have the time to take pictures, host them and post. Or maybe I don't take the time to do so... I know I have to, but I have so many things to do aside...
