  1. We decided to divide the LEGO 10251 Brick Bank into 2 separate buildings. The bank became Umbrella Bank This is the second building, which contains the Laundromat and an apartment with full interior. The apartment contains an elevator, rehearsal room, kitchen, bathroom/toilet, 2 bedrooms and a living room. It's not presented as an apartment with a family living there, but more as scenes that might happen in a LEGO world. Our version does not have much in common with the original version of the laundromat, except from the interior and a few details from the facade. The main colors are dark azur, dark blue, black and silver. Though it's a modular building, the size does not fit with the official modular buildings. It's 26x26 studs and 75 cm tall. This is the first of hopefully many tall modular buildings that eventually will form a street in our LEGO layout.
  2. [MOC] A Summer In Tuscany

    A Summer In Tuscany Hello guys! I've been fairly present in the forums lately, but haven't released a MOC in about seven months, so it's about time! A Summer In Tuscany by Pau Padrós, en Flickr This is “A Summer in Tuscany”, packing 4497 pieces, mimicking the sizes of Assembly Square and towering 33.6 cm (13 inches) tall. There’s a certain je-ne-sais-quoi that some wonderful modulars capture, and I wanted to capture some of that in mine as well. What better place to look for it than Italy, then? Inspired mostly on the buildings and summery atmosphere of the Emilia-Romagna (I know the name doesn’t say that…) – Piacenza, Parma, Modena and Bologna, to name a few. A Summer In Tuscany Side by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Another point of view on the two façades. Vines climbing up walls and fences, flags being blown by the soft breeze. Gelato signorina? Have one at Giolitti! Have fun looking for references hidden throughout the whole model! PD: Genie’s lamp as decoration on the yellow building The Orange Building: A Summer In Tuscany: Orange Building by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Fun and reckless! Orange isn't the safest colour to build a modular out of, and even less when you decide to stuck a 45-degree façade on it. Nevertheless, I feel this building is the crazier part of the model and brings that needed extravaganza to make a great modular. The rooftop detailing is subtle but one of my favourites Ground Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Giolitti Gelati by Pau Padrós, en Flickr “Giolitti Gelati” has all the ice-cream flavours one can ask for: Lime, Orange, Olive Pistachio Green or Flame Vanilla Yellow, all wordplays on Lego colour names. Middle Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Le Lampade di Roberto by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Roberto has any lamp you might need in stock. From a Luxo Jr. studio lamp to a cinema focus. Many of the lamps are from Lego’s official modular (not just Palace Cinema's) Top Floor: I'm sorry I didn't take a picture of this, but rendering took way too long and stopped it. Inside is a stained glass artist studio. Fairly cool, huh The Yellow Building: Didn't take a specific shot for this one, as it would be too similar to the second one. It feels like the anchor of the model. (Call me crazy for saying this), but it's the building I played it safest with -and I know it's yellow! . It works as a harmonious counterpart to the Orange building. Adding as shallow dark orange roofing is something I'd been wanting to do since I finished Italian Villa. Desires one by one fulfill themselves, don't they? Ground Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Bike Shop by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Hard at work, trying to fix a greasy bicycle. Through the back door, it leads to a little garden. He’s so concentrated in fact, he hasn’t seen somebody peeking through the window… The same "somebody" who's been secretly placing flowers on the man's outiside bicycles! Middle Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Puppet Theatre by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Shush! The play is about to start. Suitable for kids and adults alike. Curtains closed, phones off. Oh! Forgot we're not in the present! Top Floor: A Summer In Tuscany: Astronomers' Club by Pau Padrós, en Flickr As night falls and stars start sprinkling all around the sky, seeing planets is the new black for our ABS friends! One final picture: A Summer In Tuscany's Best Friends by Pau Padrós, en Flickr Magic Shop and Sweets & Co. hugging their new friend and compainion to the modular street. Hope you enjoyed my little tour around my newest model. Drop in any comments (hopefully praises ) or dislikings, of course if you feel like so. Thanks again, have a very very nice day wherever you are in our wounderful world!
  3. Chemist's - MODULAR

    When your minifig is it can buy medicines in this building. If it struggles with some problems, it can see Brickovsky, the psychologist who sees his patients in his office above the chemist's. To enter the office you have to go trough the chemisst's and use spinal stairs. In front of the office there's a small waiting room too. This model requises 1753 pieces Chemist's by Agata Baśkiewicz, on Flickr Chemist's by Agata Baśkiewicz, on Flickr Chemist's by Agata Baśkiewicz, on Flickr Chemist's by Agata Baśkiewicz, on Flickr
  4. Hey guys, I know that several people before me created similar threads but here, there are some specific people from whom I would really like to learn how they design modulars or non-modular buildings, from where they get inspiration, how do they start to design and which techniques they use to create their incredible buildings - so I mention them here.

  5. Negative views about the Market Street

    Hey guys, After seeing the poor MS is even not considered like an official modular, I started to make some research about it, what is it’s minus? Perhaps the interior or it’s designed by an AFOL? What’s the problem about it? The only thing I don’t like is it’s windows 1x2x3 pane. Otherwise, I like it a lot and it is a different architecture. Even Jamie says in the 10th anniversary video that it was a very important modular and was encouraged to continue the line.
  6. [MOC] Modular Florentine Steakhouse & Butchery

    Reserve a table at the Florentine Steakhouse! Customers can choose high quality meat from the Butchery and then taste it in the Steakhouse, inside or in the romantic loggia. It features an old couple's three floor house as well. Hope you like it guys and appreciate Italian style! And if you wish to build it and support my activity, just check it out HERE!
  7. Hey guys, I’m searching MOC instructions and LDD files for my near-future huge Lego city. I plan of course doing some MOC modulars but there are some very nice MOCs created by other people! I made a list of all the designers I found, I hope that list helps some other people who search modular instructions! Here are the MOCers with instructions that are definitely worth looking at (with no particular order): —Brick Ative (by @lookl and @Pakita) ebay Rebrickable —SteBrick (by @stef2280) Bricklink Stebrick Rebrickable —Snaillad (instructions on sale by @2013-lego) (by @snaillad) ebay Rebrickable —Sheo (by @sheo) Rebrickable —peedeejay (by @peedeejay) ebay Rebrickable —bricksandtiles (by @Giacinto Consiglio) ebay Rebrickable —Kristel (by @Kristel) Rebrickable —brickcitydepot (by @brickcitydepot) brickcitydepot ebay Amazon no starch press Barnes and Noble —Ryan Taggart (by @ryantaggart) LDD File of Construction Site – (by @Gunman) ebay —BrickToyCo (by @Tobysan) BrickToyCo —hermez (by @hermez) Rebrickable —mestari (by @Mestari) Rebrickable —Huaojozu (by @Huaojozu) Rebrickable —2013-lego (by @2013-lego) (his own designed modulars) ebay Rebrickable —Duncaadkin0 (by @Dakar A) ebay —BrickBuildersPro (by @lgorlando) BrickBuildersPro ebay Amazon —The Brick Show Shop The Brick Show ebay —andrepsramos ebay TISMSTORE Rebrickable –Brickstruct Bricklink Brickstruct —10214 Alternative Build (by Garom) Rebrickable —The Magic House (by valgarise) Smart Bricks —Bob's Burgers (by jtam1608) ebay —Villa Maison (by @marcosbessa) (found the LDD file on LDD gallery as it’s no longer available in his own website): LDD File —Train Station (by @LegoWolf) (link to download the LDD file is on his Flickr): LDD File Here are some other ones (those which doesn't really interest me but I'm sure that will interest many others): —SkywardBrick Rebrickable —TheUniqueBrick TheUniqueBrick Rebrickable ebay —A *Deal* 4 U (by waltzking) Bricklink —Bricker and Co Bricker and Co ebay —Bjor Schoute ebay —sabriyo Sabriyo Customs ebay —Bauanleitungenmartin ebay —Berth Rebrickable —Soar Brick soarbrick ebay —gryffindorcommonroom ebay —scottcdavid ebay —sodabilly ebay —bolbuyk Rebrickable —deconstructor1 ebay —jval (Need for Brick) Bricklink Rebrickable —Fully Brick Models Bricklink —Brick Vice Bricklink Rebrickable —BrickusMaximus Bricklink —SonicSunday Rebrickable —Brickalive Rebrickable BlocK Shop — CUSTOMBRICKS Rebrickable —The Royal Church (by ateameric) Rebrickable —Alternative for Town Bridge (by Albertovax Corner) Bricklink —Bowling Alley (by drtyksh) ebay —Book Store (by Lair of Maedhros) Bricklink So that’s all I found. Maybe you wonder “why he’s asking for new instructions, he already found enough!” I ask it because I’m just purchasing/will just purchase the instructions in the categorie “must-have” . In LDD gallery, there are some interesting MOCs, you can download them too. I hope that list helps some people and some people helps me by recommending/finding more modular instructions/LDD files Cheers!
  8. I've got something interesting to share. This is a magic museum that has a 16 x 16 stud footprint. It was deliberately made smaller than a full modular-sized building but was designed to visually fit with other official modular buildings as well as the smaller creator series buildings such as the Corner Deli and Bike Shop & Cafe. It works as a corner building or a “set-in’ building, in-between two other modular buildings. The goal of this set is to blend two creative arts together for an enriching, entertaining and educational experience. Fans of LEGO brick-building will be introduced to the art of magic as they embark on a journey into the colourful world of conjuring & prestidigitation in the “History of Magic Museum”. The “History of Magic Museum” is a historically accurate magic-themed three-storey building that highlights some of the greatest illusions and magicians in the history of magic. It is highly detailed with numerous LEGO replicas of authentic magic & illusion props used by illusionists from the past to present day. There are more than half a dozen play features and removable brick-built illusion displays. This is a Lego Ideas Project, so if you like it, please vote for it: You can watch the video preview here: History of Magic Museum Video

  11. [MOC] Home Sweet Home

    Hello There! Sharing my latest creation. Hope you like it. Cheers!
  12. Here's a quick overview of the MILS standard. For those who haven't heard it of it, it is a standard published by the Hispabrick magazine to help coordinate diorama building between Lego builders. It also is a great foundational tool for learning how to make more advanced builds. Hope you enjoy! I have other videos on my channel with instructions on how to make the various modules.
  13. Hey everyone! I haven't built much of anything over the last couple of years but finally got back to it. I designed this mini modular a few years ago and just got around to actually buying the pieces. I initially planned to use red, blue, yellow, green, orange, and purple but decided to go with the dark and sand colors because they're a bit more subdued and fit my mini modular street better. I might swap the sand green and dark red. The dark red seems to be a bit hidden when its with other building and I think think red provides a nice contrast with the rest of the colors.

Let me know what you think!
  14. MOC Modular round park square

    After a very long time, here's another MOC I made recently. It was built for an exhibition in March this year, but due to the turn of events, I took the photos much later, and only found time to upload them now. This was a ''quick'' model for the exhibition, which is why there is almost no interior detailing (another reason was lack of ideas). Since the facades are mostly covered by the vegetation, the unfinished interiors are not seen. I used this model to try new styles and techinques for the buildings widths and roof design. This is the front view, with the buildings partly covered by the tall trees. The park area can be removed to see the buildings in their full glory. I tried different widths, colours and roof styles. I wanted to make a yellow bank since the 3661 Bank and Money Transfer set, but nver had enough yellow bricks. Now that I got enough bright yellow bricks, this colour seemed great to finally build a bank. The left building is a post office, and the first floor design was initially based on a LDD model made by my sister. The dark green building is an older MOC, used for comparison only. Aerial view reveals the almost round park on the square. Initially, I wanted it round, but turned too small for what I wanted to do, so I made it more oval. The paths are crossing the park from different angles, and there's people walking from one side to the other. Since this was build for an exhibition, the park was positioned between the train station and the rest of the town, and had a very transitional role (with people crossing from the station to the downtown area). If interested in more different angles (but almost the same looking pictures, feel free to check my Flickr account.
  15. I started planning this building in LDD after having aquired a whole bunch of sand green parts from the PAB wall. I wanted to use them for something, along with a bunch of mostly white bricks that I have bought off PAB walls earlier. So my intention was to design a building where I could use my current collection of bricks and only order more bricks if absolutely necessary. This didn't restrict me that much, actually. It was fun trying to play around with what you have. Maybe the big tan plates as floors stand out a little too much (grey or white would have looked nicer), otherwise I'm quite satisfied with the result. The ground floor consists of the Heartlake Party Shop 41132, which I simply put on a baseplate and added some walls. Of course, I had to build a staircase, too, so one could reach the upper floors. The balloon stand is a modification of the 70900 Joker Balloon Escape. The "power plant" that is part of the set is inside the party shop and functions as a machine used to fill the balloons with helium. One floor up, there's a wedding chapel (40165 Wedding Favor Set) and the top floor houses houses a recording studio (41103 Pop Star Recording Studio). So the building includes four sets. There's a barren backyard with a tree and a bird from 31065 Park Street Townhouse as well as some benches and a small carrot field. Looks like Mommy bought little John a red balloon from the Party Shop. His big brother, chilling on the bench, looks a bit angry. Maybe he's envious of his little borther, who knows... Lots of flowers in different colours by the tree. The side wall is reddish brown because it acts as a (wood-paneled) back wall for the wedding chapel. A simple roof with some a/c units. The roof is green because I had so many green 16x16 plates – but the colour fits nicely with the rest of the building. All floors have interiors, which I will be showing to you in the coming days, so please stay tuned. And I'm always grateful for any comments!

  18. Full post here Hello everyone! I built this MOC a while back but completely forgot to post it. But better late than never, so enjoy! This is a Modular Building MOC. The lower level is a Chinese Restaurant while the upper level is an Indian Restaurant. Overview of the entire Modular Building There is a fence around the building. The stairway leads to the Indian Restaurant. There are opening windows. Here’s the back view. It’s a lot plainer but there are still opening windows for the Indian Restaurant’s kitchen. This is the interior of the Indian Restaurant. The floor is made of Nexo Knight shield tiles. Here’s the kitchen of the Indian Restaurant. It’s rather cramp. The chef is using some of his spices. Here is the interior of the Chinese Restaurant. It has a checkered floor. Looks like someone just ordered rice! The chef is working hard! Look at the yummy ducks in the back C&C welcome as always! Thanks for looking!
  19. As a camper van, the 31052 Vacation Getaways set is far too big for my taste. But as an exception to the rule (the rule being that alternative 3in1 models are uninspiring and poorly made) the Hillside House style small building looked sort of nice in the pictures, and the sand blue windows and door frame were enticing. So in all the places of the world, I found this set for a good price in Switzerland, which otherwise must be the most expensive country in Europe... €41 for one set. I got one and built the house. It felt even smaller than I had thought, but with another set, it could be expanded... So I bought a second set, but didn't end up expanding the house. Instead, I started playing around with LDD. The result is a 16-wide three-storey modular building based on the idea of using the sand blue windows. The back side is very plain, as are the sides of the building. There is no interior, save for steps that take you from floor to floor, apart from the ground floor, which doesn't have any steps... I'm not too fond of creating interiors for residential buildings, since they are all more or less the same, so this will most likely remain empty. I hope you like it!
  20. MOD: Naomi's Place

    The Friends Heartlake Cupcake Cafe (41119) has been out for more than year and I did a review of it some ten months ago. At that time, I had a vision of what the modular version would look like and it had been sitting on a shelf in my lounge room since then, waiting for me to do the conversion. Better late than never, I guess. As with my other Friends conversions, I did this one open-backed and with lots of clear panels to facilitate playability. I loved the entrance for the Heartlake Cupcake Cafe, especially the stained glass window above the front door and the windows framed using the ornamental arches. This section of the building was 16 studs wide and was therefore a natural starting point for the conversion to a modular building. The other part that I really liked was the outdoor seating area, so I incorporated that into the rooftop terrace. C&C welcome, as always! More images on flickr and the instructions for the structure are available to download here.
  21. MOC: Modular Space Centre

    Hello everyone! Today I have the great pleasure to introduce this new MOC. It marks my final transition to new themes beyond the Winter Village that kept me engaged for 5 years. For some time I thought of building a modular building but at the same time about a year ago are back thoughts about my past, from my first time playing with LEGO, and were rekindled in me the memories of the Classic Space 80s. The idea came by itself... build something that united the two themes: a modular classic space! The modular is divided into 3 levels, but is arranged to be possibly raised "potentially" of other planes. The ground floor consists of a garage space of ground transportation and a sort of workshop space where they can build models of spaceships and repair vehicles and robots. The first floor is composed in part of a laboratory, beds for the rest of the crew and a special bed in order to make the analysis and hibernations subjects. In the central part of the hall there is a table for meeting space and also the panels with some bodies of hibernating aliens. The top floor consists of the space control center with computers, radar and a rocket for space exploration. It 's also an airstrip with a ship in the neo classic space style. The modular is very playable, first of all because it has three means and then have various other movements operated with levers technic. It has an elevator that goes from floor to floor with a system already seen in various moc (with gears) by operating a hand lever. There is also the possibility of including a PF motor with battery compartment, but by the time I liked to leave everything manually. Also in the ground floor two red levers allow you to open the main door (opening side-scrolling) and the two gates (simultaneous opening front / rear tilting) of the space garage. Aloft a third lever allows you to run the big radar. A further radar satellite can be manually rotated with the minifigs on board. I think that would really like children and not only! The modular is composed of about 3200 pieces and 10 minifigs (9 classic space and one child). I hope that this new moc you like it, I enjoyed it a lot to build it and I hope you will also appreciate my effort to begin the production of moc of new themes!

  22. As SvenF shared his awesome entires to the ReBrick Modular Contest, I thought I'd do the same! Remember, maximum is 16x16, yellow-faced minifigures only and must add to any of the existing modulars. Having said that, let's begin with.... Donatello's Art Studio: An old-style art studio, with all sorts of details and painings. Talking of which, there are three of them reminiscent of real ones: A map of Europe on the back wall, Girl with a Pearl Earring by Vermeer and The Starry Night by Vincent Van Gogh. Donatello is the blonde guy's nickname, honouring Donatello the Renaissance Italian painter, the other two bearded minifigs are the judges; they'll decide whether Donatello's work is worth an exhibition or it's just a mere copy of old work... . Would be located on the 1st floor of Pet Shop's brown building. Right now it is at 5th position of the most liked entries, with over 350 views! Jean's Bakery: A modern, sleek bakery, with a vintage touch! White bricks, chequered floor, palet tables are jst some of my favorite details in this one. Jean, as you can imagine, owns this bakery in the south of France, there would be a crêpe-o-maker, but there was no space availabe for that. What there was space for, though, was Jean's second favourite thing: music, and not any sort of music, but classical music. That's why he has the today unused machines there were to play it: a grampohone and a record player. Would be located on Assembly Square's blue building ground floor, instead of that rather boring café. Jean's Bakery is clocking 31 likes with only 300 views, and at 3rd position! Thanks for bearing with me and my long speech, leave comments if you liked it!
  23. Do you like stories about secret rooms, hidden maps, the secret signs and ancient treasures? I will tell you one such story. Once upon a time lived a famous architect. He even built palaces for kings. He was fabulously rich and famous. He was very fond of gold and jewels. And all the money he spent on them. But when he died, left a very strange Testament. The old architect wrote in his testament that he hid all his gold and jewels. The map and the key to the treasure he left for storage to the Admiral Carl Jonson who was a close friend of the architect. It seems that everything is simple. But the admiral died 10 years earlier than the architect. Therefore, it is impossible to ask the Admiral, where the treasures are hidden. People says that the treasure has not yet been found. Maybe you can find them? Good luck! So I made a little comic about a treasure hunt. This story happened on this pedestrian street. If you want to see all images of this set, please click here: If you liked the story and the set, please SUPPORT this project on!
  24. [MOC] Davenport Hotel

    Completed just in time for the Brick Live exhibition in Birmingham was my latest MOC based on Dublin's Davenport Hotel. That particular building was chosen because Scooby Doo needed to check out something more than just the haunting ghouls on the roof and scary lanterns awaiting those who entered, namely the 'illegal' gambling on the first floor between the centre columns. This particular feature is a fully functioning Mindstorms powered 'push-button' operated 'slot machine' that releases gold 2x2 coins out the front right door once the three barrels line up with the same colour. Reloading is through the roof. At the weekend the colour sensors worked very well once the rechargeable battery wasn't depleted. The photos below show an overview of the model, its rear (pre-swimming pool), roof swimming pool and close-up of the spinning barrels. Enjoy.

  25. The latest addition to the Modular Buildings theme has just been announced by TLG. 10255 Assembly Square celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the theme and is loaded with references to earlier Modulars. The 4,002 piece set features a little square surrounded by buildings on a 32 x 48 stud footprint. Check out all the interior and exterior details and see if you can spot all the references to previous Modular Buildings in the Town forum. The set will be available on January 1, 2017 through LEGO Shop@Home.
