But I will just make it possible somehow Sounds good for me Varionaut!

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    I am a little bit exhausted with photo-shopping right now. So I am sorry but I will pass on this one.

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    You are welcome! I mean the look does not change too much from the original I think. But also keep in mind that most of the other parts are not yet produced in Dark Azure... It is true that it somehow has a nice art deco / moderne style as a skyscraper and does look good from the proportions as a double with multiple stories.

    Actually for me this is too much. I prefer the double from the looks. But I bet there will be people that go compleatly crazy...

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10260 - Downtown Diner

    Wow! I am normally not a big fan of double modulars but in this case the building looks so much more complete and finished. The stand alone model looks just too small as a structure. But this one looks like it came straight from Miami!

    Thanks! The color that I used is no actual lego color, but it was easy to get evenly changed in photoshop. But I had exactly medium nougat in mind! I guess dark orange would also look nice tho.

    Well, as much as I love the fresh idea of bringing the modulars in the time of art deco the colours are just a little bit too much for me. And especially the big Diner sign makes the building look small in my opinion. Other than this I feel that there would have been nicer options to include printed tiles instead of all the star tiles that we already have seen a lot (especially in Palace Cinema) e.g. the Jack Sparrow printed belt piece that looks like bacon. Or the printed waffel piece from the Lego Movie sets. Also instead of the big brick build Diner sign that in my opinion destracts a lot from the rest of the building there could be a printed 2x4 tile like in the Parisian Restaurant as a more subtile Diner sign. And maybe make the round dish on top a nice clock. Anyway I did some quick photoshopping to change the colours and replace the sign and also the 4x4 dish. For me this would be a very much more fitting art deco style for my modular street. But I guess I will just remove the Diner sign when I have it build. Because this is bugging me the most somehow. (plus the 5x5 bow pieces do not excist in some earthy colours...) (on top I don't see a lot of extraordinary new building methods but I am happy to be hopefully surprised when I buy and build it anyway.) Even with only the big Diner sing removed I think it looks better (more like a solid, higher building). But then there needs to be something else there for which I did not came up with an idea yet...

    Eurobricks Event 2018 - Heads Up

    I defenetly want to come and see all of you great people! Buuut I will just be finished with my Master at Uni in April (even managed to sneak in some LEGO in my thesis ) and I have absolutely no idea what I will be doing by then so I guess it will get a little bit more spontaneously for me this time.
  11. I present you my LEGO - Christmas Tree I wanted to build something different and more realistic looking this year. So I experimented with just laying the Lego down flat. LEGO - Christmas Tree by Valentin, auf Flickr As every year this raffle is lots of fun, so my thanks go to CopMike!

    Ahhh well... I had my chance.
  19. Tomorrow already (so today when i write this)? So wait, when is the first day? Wasn't it wednesday travel day and thursday first day? I am somewhat confused now...
  20. I am taking the train from Ulm so that is the other direction but I checked and if Mike and Peppermint are catching the train at 16.51 at the munich airport they would arrive at 18:46. So 5 min after me. If they have to take the train after that it would be the 17:44 train that would arrive at 19:46 if I got that right.
  21. Hey Dfenz! Does your offer still stands? I will arrive by train at 18:41 at the Günzburg Train station. And I just saw that with the bus it is still 22 min to walk. Soooo if you could pick me up I would be more than happy! Also I could wait there of course if more people would arrive at the train station around that time so that we fill up the car... Also are there any dinner plans for wednesday evening? I know I will be hungry at least

    I will try my best. Maybe I should consider staying up all night and make it 24 hours refreshing the forum (or maybe I sleep too long again like I did today )

    Well I would say this is always a good skill to have but the race for the win is over I guess. 3 points open is not enough. But this also makes me realise that it is only 4 days left!
