  1. Hello everyone, I recently bought a copy of set 76108 - Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown, with the only intent to turn the Sanctum Sanctorum part into a modular building. I had liked it from the moment I saw it, and liked it even more when I saw the first mods that added another floor. So that's what I did. I bought the set without the figures, so I got it pretty cheap. That also provided a nice excuse to come up with a new backstory for it . More on that with the pictures... Diverging from my usual modus operandi, I didn't plan anything ahead this time. Since I had bought a couple of sets for parts over the last year, and also have a lot of pieces left over from all the modulars, creator houses I slaughtered to get parts for my previous MOCs, I just sat down with my parts collection and the set and started building. I finished the entire thing in less than a week, and had lots of fun doing it. While it can be maddening when you miss one part, building with bricks and sifting through your parts get's the creative juices flowing quite differently than planning in LDD. I'd estimate that the finished model consists of maybe 1500-1750 pieces (I used lots of large panel pieces for the side walls). There's no instructions, and no LDD file. If you prefer to view the pictures directly on flickr, clikc here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/131278188@N08/albums/72157693939752522 There's also a few more than I show here. The front facade is pretty much unchanged from the set, only set on a standard baseplate according to modular specs, and extended by one additional floor. I was pretty much scraping together all medium dark flesh bricks I had for the additional floor. Still had to use three dark orange bricks to complete it, but it works out fine, I think. The back went through several iterations. It takes some cues from the front, but is plainer. Detail view of the small balcony up on the top floor. Inside, we see the self-proclaimed mage that lives here. The ground floor has a dazzingly red floor. Had these tiles on hand, didn't know what to do with them, so in they went... Otherwise, it looks normal enough...cozy armchair under the stairs in front of a large TV... ... small kitchen area and a place to eat. The second floor houses the mage's bed- and bathroom. Still, nothing too out of the ordinary to see here. Wondering what's in the chest? Me, too...unfortunately, she keeps it locked at all times. Next floor... For the first time, we meet the mage. When you ask her what she's doing, she'll go on about how she's tapping into the arcane lifeforce that surrounds us and permeates everything. She does "research" on which materials are a good source for it (or "congenial vessels of the earthmother's pulse", as she puts it), and how it can be extracted. If you ask her neighbours about her, they'll say things like "Oh, her?! She's just batshit crazy! Let's just hope that when she eventually burns down her house, the fire department gets here before the fire spreads!". We have arrived on the top most floor. Here, the self-proclaimed mage does her 'experiments', which usually involve grinding and burning stuff. As on the floor below, the shelves are packed with arcane books, some merele esoteric, and some pretty occult. They also contain precious artefacts she collected over the years - usually paying way too much for them at yard sales... Finally here's a comparison shot with the Pet Shop: Looks a bit too high, or maybe the Pet Shop is just too small... There, better So, that's it . Hope you like it, let me know what you think! As I said there's a few more pics on flickr, so check them out: https://www.flickr.com/photos/131278188@N08/albums/72157693939752522 Cheers, Tobias / Roger_Smith
  2. [MOC] Pharmacy

    Hello to everyone, this is my latest creation. I called it "Pharmacy". It's a modular building of 2802 bricks. On Flickr Lego Pharmacy
  3. Hi All, Long time builder first, time poster here with a bit of a technical question regarding construction minifig scale buildings. I wish to build a triangle shaped modular scale or 48x48 sized building but have been stumped with figuring out the brick geometry using LDD and actual bricks have failed to give me a consistently straight equilateral or isosceles type triangle shape. The only building I know was from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=on2CzSVTJxc from Jangbricks on Youtube. For reference of my Lego CV : Any thoughts or remarks about triangular buildings would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Berl
  4. I wanted to expand the detective's office which in my opinion is the best modular building to date. This building is about 95% ready and that is good enough for me because I don't want to make any more bricklink orders :) The expanded building is 2 floors higher than the original. I wan't to build basements to my city and that's why I plan to build all modulars onto a 4 brick high base. The building may look like the original one but it is structurally very different and that is why it took a very very long time to build. This building a 2 bricks further back on the baseplate than the original. I think I'll need more space on front side and decided that all modulars need to move back a bit. Back side is pretty similar to to original, exept for the oversized antenna on top floor. There will be an alley on the left side of the building and the entrance to basement is from there. In the front there is an opening. Inside of it are two levers which eject techic axles from the side of the building. These axles hold modular buildings in place when they are side by side. I don't like the normal connection style using techic pins because it is difficult to remove a single building from a row. Let's start going over the details from the top. The billboard has a spy camera, more on that in the next image. There is spy living in here! The spy is not there at the moment, I don't know yet who that spy is, but I think the next modified modular building might reveal that. Also note that the front side of the building can be opened. Each floor has separately openable wall. Second floor from the top has the detective's office from the original building and a greenhouse(?) on the other side. The story behind the the plant room is that I have only ever bought one collectible minifigure pack and got that crazy plant person from it. I dont like it but I thought that he needs to live somewhere in the city and so this is his house. He's got a green bed and a grow light on top of it. There is a small pond in the middle of the room and the plant guy is standing on it and "drinking" water from it. Another image from the greenhouse. The next floor has a record store. Credits for this idea go to RyanHoweter and his ideas project Lego record store Record store from another angle. The original toilet is on the same floor as the record store. Not so private anymore... Street level has the pool table and the barber shop like the original building. Door to pool hall was moved from the front to the side where entrance to barber shop is also. These opening walls were rather difficult to make. The newspaper box has to be removed before opening the walls but that is the only piece that is blocking any of the opening walls. The corner of opening barber shop wall fits into the extra space from the stairs. The bench is attached to the wall and the tree and the lamp post just barely miss the opening wall. The last floor has a bar. The bottom right room is a storage space and the door to it is in the corner of the stage where a cat is lying. The storage room has a sliding secret door which leads to a secret kitchen where cookies are made. This kitchen is much better hidden than the one in the original, the detective will never suspect anything. Part of the street can be removed easily. It is held in place by the same lever which attaches this building to it's neighbours. This is the band, they are playing jazz. The rest of the basement. The whole building with all walls opened. I really like how everything worked out. It is so easy to look at and show other people details without removing floors. The structure is not as durable as in the original building but it is good enough. I can easily remove floors (one or multiple) without fear of breaking something. Walls open without force and it feels like there is enough support for everything. I learned A LOT during this build and I had so much fun doing it. I will definately modify more of the modulars. So what do you think about this? And greetings to all! This is my first post to here, happy to join this awesome community.
  5. I had the opportunity to review this set for Brick Architect website. I've focused on the question around whether this set is a good stepping stone for builders wanting to try the Creator Expert Modular Building Series—This is an excerpt of a longer review. Initial Impressions At first glance, this set’s high level of architectural detailing looks like it belongs in the Modular Buildings series. At 99.99$ for 1004 pieces, it is a good deal smaller and less expensive than the modular buildings. Building the model The construction process uses 8 numbered bags, so you will only have a few parts on the table at any given time. This felt like too many bags given the modest size of the model, but I suspect this was intentional to keep each bag to around 20 minutes of construction time, and to reduce frustration searching for the part you need. For younger builders, it might make sense to only assemble one bag each day. Architectural Detailing Of the two buildings, the Sanctum side of the model is the strongest by far. The three stories reflect three different styles of architectural detailing. The bottom floor has a rusticated stone façade and sloping concrete base suggesting a strong foundation. The second story has a nice contrast between the stone columns and orange stucco. the top floor has a Second Empire style roof, with rectangular windows on either side of an oversized oculus-style window. While the large round window is creative license on behalf of Marvel, the use of three distinct styles representing the bottom floor, middle floors, and very top floor is quite common in urban residential architecture in Europe and North America. Highly decorated urban residences drew inspiration from rural palaces, at the same period in history when affluent people chose to move to the cities. Modular Building Lite? If you review the current selection of LEGO sets, there is a huge gap between the relatively simple buildings featured in the “Creator” series (typically around 30$, aimed at ages 8-12), and the massive sets in the “Creator Expert” series (well over 100$ and targeting ages 16+). The basic “Creator” sets feature relatively little architectural detailing, whereas the Creator Expert sets are extremely intricately detailed. There aren’t a lot of sets in the middle, introducing more advanced building techniques at a reasonable price point, until this set. To be fair, there are a lot of awesome sets aimed at this transitional skill level and age group within the Star Wars and Super Heroes series, but they are usually ships or large playsets instead of buildings. For this reason, I think it is fair to consider this set unique in offering an architecturally focused minifigure scale model which sits somewhere between the simplicity of the “creator” series and the complexity of the “creator expert” products. To set realistic expectations, this model has a more compressed scale than those in the Modular Building series: with a base of just 16×16 studs and very small rooms and short ceilings on each floor. That said, there are numerous examples online where people have modified the official set to fit in their Modular city — it doesn’t look like major changes are required to make it look good. Conclusions: While it doesn’t quite meet the level of architectural detailing found in the Creator Expert modular building series, #76108 Sanctum Sanctorum Showdown is a fantastic introduction to the style. It comes Highly Recommended due to thoughtful architectural detailing, great minifigs, and a fair price. For the full-length review and lots of photos, visit: http://brickarchitect.com/2018/review-76108-sanctum-sanctorum-showdown/ What do you think? I'd love to hear what sets you recommend to new AFOLS or younger builders who want to work up to the Creator expert Modular Building series?
  6. [MOC] Klee Corner

    Klee Corner Hello guys and welcome to “Klee Corner”, (technically) my eighth modular building, packing a whopping 4480 pieces. Coming from “A Summer in Tuscany”, with its bright yellow and orange colours screaming “look at me”, its follow-up had to do something entirely different. Therefore, instead of a 48×32 baseplate, I chose the classic 32×32 (hadn't done a 32×32 modular since Sweets & Co., over a year ago!) and decided to cram it with details to (near) insanity levels. Without further ado… Klee Corner marks many personal “firsts” in my modular history: First model with three buildings (plus on a single 32x32 baseplate), first curved façade, first alleyway that crosses an entire model through and first building narrower than 8 studs. I'll walk you through my model in a little extra detail. This model packs a big number of colours in the Lego inventory 29 out of 41 solid colours and 11 out of 15 transparent colours, making a total of 40 different colours! The Blue and Curved Buildings: This is the narrowest house I've ever built, at just 6 studs wide! Inevitably, it is difficult for it to have a prominent silhouette to mark a staple in the skyline, but it definitely helps to add variety to an otherwise rather monotonous skyline. As it is skinnier, I placed it further in front of the composition, to make it draw a little more attention. The inspiration for this building comes mostly from Bilbao, a city in the Basque Country, north of the Iberian Peninsula, where they've placed bold metal boxes, full of windows to modernise the old city centre. Wonder where the name “Klee Corner” comes from? From Paul Klee, of course, the famous Swiss painter. His and many other artist's interpretation of the world lend themselves right here. It's quite funny, as the ground floor for this (the red box) remains from the first sessions of building, but the top part has had close to ten different iterations. The last one is absolutely perfect and does everything I hoped it would. Interior-wise, these two buildings work together, as I didn't think possible any way of making the curved façade actually modular (detachable and duplicable). This creative decision makes the two share all five interiors. Bottom Floor: The metal-enclosed box is similar to one to be found in “The Little Owl Restaurant”, in New York City. In such bold ground floor, there could be nothing less than a bustling pizzeria! Overlook Magic Shop – or any building, as in modular land, everything's possible! - through the windowed section as you wait for your pizza to come. The tiling is particularly interesting, and I managed to sneak details such as plants, drawers, napkin servers and overhanging lights. Middle Floor: The middle floor and top floors can be accessed through the white door next to the red box (the blue building's door, per say). These two floors encompass a night lounge bar only for select ABS humanoids to go. Drinks are served in weirdly-coloured bottles, as light comes through in shades of orange and yellow through the windows. Top Floor: In the most intimate nights, the piano is an element that needs to be present. Its sinuous curves invite all clients to walk up the spiral staircase to hear the pianist magically craft long chord progressions and fugacious staccatos. The Brownish/Reddish/Greenish/Yellowish Buildings Yes, the easiest name to remember, right!? The façade of this building tries to improve Detective's Office’s (I'll leave that to your judgement) blue building, adding it extra texture, colours and (hopefully) life. Bottom Floor: Houses the oldest pharmacy in town dating as far back as 1932. It even preserves the old tile mosaic on its outer façade and the tenths of glass bottles in which they kept serums and medicines. They say Ole Kirk Kristiansen used to shop for medicine here. I love the flooring here, by the way. Middle and Top Floors: Ever wondered where they made ordinary object before our world became a disposable polluted sphere? One of the practically lost jobs was making and selling umbrellas, and my little modular town couldn't go without one, could it? Due to the way the walls are built (extremely parts heavy, by the way! This building has more pieces than the other two together!), the interior is very crammed and doesn't allow for much detail, but it nevertheless is a cool little area. Pink umbrella… I wonder who might want to buy one of those… Erm… Hagrid? Some extra images: More awesome pictures to be found on my Flickr, with some really cool ones from awkward angles and such. Hope you've enjoyed Klee Corner, as well as reading through what I've written about it. Have a very nice day, wherever on Earth you might be! Pau
  7. [MOC] Modular Sushi Bar

    Hi everyone, I would like to present my newest modular building: A modular sushi bar. The lower level features the sushi bar including a 和室 (japanese room) which is currently packed with a lot of salary men and woman which have been invited by their boss for after hour drinks. Within the restaurant you can choose to either dine the traditional way at the bar where the itamae is serving you directly or sit down with a group of people at one of the tables. The middle and upper level features an apartment. It took me a while to get a new build done due to lack of time and inspiration but once I started again it was quite a breeze. I enjoyed using some new pieces, especially all the new tiles which are round or partially round. Also finally I could build windows using the new double jumper tile as a base. The biggest challenge from an architectural standpoint was the topmost corner of the building which took me quite a few tries until I was happy with it (I fell in love with the new semi cut 1x2 round slope!). Statistics Parts: 4999 (coincidence! ;-)) Build time: around 60h within LDD and 8h with real bricks Bricklink orders: 12 Below you can find a selection of images. All of them can be viewed here: http://kawano.de/LEGO/Sushi_Bar/sushi_bar.html Again a building instruction is available for purchase for those who would like to build it themselves! Also complete building kits (instruction + all necessary bricks) will be available soon but in reduced quantity (PM me if you would like to make a resveration).
  8. [MOC] Modular Italian Restaurant

    01 Front by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr Hey everyone, this is my first attempt at a custom Modular! Based on the colorful architecture of Italian coastal towns, the model includes an Italian restaurant and pizzeria, along with a gelato shop, on the ground floor. Up the spiral staircase to the al fresco balcony, there's also a gentleman's tailors and small Roman museum complete with mosaic of an erupting Mount Vesuvius. Finally, up the rear staircase to the top floor, there's a artist's studio with half-sculpted statue, and a winemaker. More images (including the full interior) are on my Flickr at https://www.flickr.com/photos/146006635@N03/sets/72157696630743215/ 02 Street by mouseketeer 111, on Flickr
  9. Hello! Welcome to my WIP "Midi" Scale Lego Modular City. Unlike Micro scale or Minifig scale, Midi scale sits inbetween those two. Above is a 16x16 corner modular base with a three wide sidewalk. The 1x4 Technic bricks are the connector bricks that allow you to connect the modulars together. Also, 1x1 bricks with a 1x1 round plates on top represent the people in this scale. Check out my "Midiopolis" Flickr album to see everything I've made so far in Midi Scale. https://www.flickr.com/photos/149607664@N06/albums/72157691144814160 Also, feel to check out and join my Lego Midi Scale Flickr group! https://www.flickr.com/groups/lego_midi_scale/
  10. Hey everyone, i wanted to share my Lego City with you guys. Its part Modular Sets and Part Moc. I hope you enjoy it and i would love to hear some feedback. :) It took me about 4 years to create it, and its still not done. I will rework China-town, because I want to get rid of the Ghostbusters building (It can't be opened the way it is placed, so I will move it to a shelf) and there will be two glass Towers on the spots, that are empty at the moment. Also the Hospital will be rebuild. for more Pictures visit: https://imgur.com/a/xpSzm#3Vqc61m
  11. Firehouse 23

    As much as I liked the Fire Brigade (it was my first modular), I wanted something different. I did some research and saw that Firehouse 23 in L.A. was actually used as some of the interior filming of the original Ghostbusters and Big Trouble in Little China. Now I didn't build the interior like the official building, but I liked how the exterior turned out. This is a 24 wide building. It adds another width of a typical street. Firehouse 23 by TheLegoDr, on Flickr Firehouse 23 by TheLegoDr, on Flickr And the rear. I copied some from Fire Brigade. Firehouse 23 by TheLegoDr, on Flickr This adds a new building to my layout. It is a little taller than some of the other modulars, but it fits in pretty well. It's always neat trying to copy a real building and turn it into lego.
  12. Have you ever wondered how to end a row of modulars in a natural way? One of the available options is to introduce a water feature, be it a beach, lake or a river and then use that for a nice natural progression. In this case, I took the Big Ben set and rebuilt it as a 32w modular that's meant to sit at the end of your street and transition into a beach, bay or a similar feature. I wanted it to evoke the placement often found at beach resorts with a walkway "onto" the sea. It's kind of a faux corner building, as it has 2 adjacent sides of the facade exposed, but only one pavement. Since 10253 doesn't contain a baseplate, it sits on standard plates included in the set, making it slightly higher than other modulars. You can easily solve it by putting everything on a 32x32 baseplate and adjusting the pieces slightly to allow for modular connections. If you like it, you can get instructions here: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-14123/Huaojozu/the-lounge-10253-big-ben-alternate-model-modular/ Since there are no doors in the set, I solved it by making a sliding door as commonly seen in malls for example. That also determined what kind of building it's going to be - a store, hotel, casino or a similar high-end establishment would fit best with such pronounced doors. The Big Ben ski pole decorations also serve well to give the appearence of rich-ness. It was a bit of a struggle to make the interior, as the 10253 set contains an awful lot of tan bricks and not much else. But in the end I am happy with how it turned out. There was only enough plates to make floors for two sections, so the roof is just that - a roof. I've at least made the statue on the second floor a bit higher to justify the space. It was a lot of fun to do this and I am already looking forward to my next project, which will be an alternate model for the Sydney Opera House 10234. It's going to be interesting to see how so many curved white pieces can be used. And since it also has lots of blue, it will make a nice complement to The Lounge - sitting opposite of it and ending with the sea as well.
  13. I made Instructions for my MOC: 10211 Grand Emporium Alternative buildwith the theme of "Wedding Hall"You can make this Alternative build only using parts of 10211 lego set, without any extra bricks.Model design, Instructions by Inyong Lee Store pages: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Lego-10211-alternative-build-instructions/132595113153?hash=item1edf48dcc1:g:Vs4AAOSwdMBa3hef https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-14248/InyongBricks/10211-alternative-build/
  14. I have two modular buildings: Palace Cinema and Brick Bank. Which modular would fit between the two?

  16. [MOC] THE QUEEN BRICKTORIA PUB

    Hi everyone I'd like to share with you my second MOC which I have been working on over the past few weeks. For this project I decided to tackle a subject very close to my heart - the Great British Pub! So without further ado... Grab yourself a pint and join me for a guided tour of The Queen Bricktoria! As you can see this is a modular style corner building with 3 floors built on a 32x32 base plate. The design is intended to be reminiscent of British town centre pubs or more specifically the style of pubs we'd see in London. The Minifigures There are 7 minifigs with the model. The 3 characters below are the pub workers. From left to right we have the Owner/Landlord and his daughter the barmaid. The guy with the guitar is a local singer who has been booked to play a gig at the pub. The 4 figures below are the pub regulars. The guy with the beard is the typical sort of old gent we find in many pubs propping up the bar and boring everyone to death with their stories of the good old days. The guy in the green top and the girl are boyfriend and girlfriend. Level 1 - The Bar Outside the building we have a busy street corner. I've included an iconic British red phone box and an outside covered seating area. There is also a sign board advertising events etc at the pub. The main entrance leads us in to the bar/lounge area. Inside we have a well stocked bar and a cozy fireplace. There are also tables and bar stool for the minifigs to sit and enjoy their drinks. Brown carrots make pretty good beer pump handles. At the back of the bar is a staircase leading us up to level 2. Level 2 - Pool and Darts Room On the second level is a games room featuring a Pool table and Dart board. There is also a pool cue rack and a shelf with trophies won by the resident darts team. At the back of the room is another staircase that leads to level 3. Level 3 - Live Music Room Level 3 has a stage for Live Music gigs and Karaoke. On the stage we have a keyboard, guitar, amps and microphone. Also on this level is more seating for the minifigs and a door that leads to a small balcony seating area. Oh dear!!! The singer seems to be a bit of a hit with the ladies. The Finished Model Here is a picture of the Queen Bricktoria next to my first MOC design, The Convenience store, as you can see my new MOC is much much bigger. Another picture below shows the pub next to one of the official modulars, to help give a sense of the size of the model. Thanks very much for reading and I hope you like my newest MOC. There are more pictures of it on my Flickr page so feel free to check them out and let me know what you think.
  17. I was inspired to create this model from the 2018 Jurassic World set 75930, Indoraptor Rampage at Lockwood Estate, with some design cues from set 10228, Haunted House. The dollhouse-style model was built from the set pictures, with the play features removed and opening rear sections added to match the front half. The model also features the round "time window" for the mad scientist's experiments, along with lightning rods on top of the house. (for powering his experiments) Here is the in-universe backstory for the house and the enigmatic Doctor Harold Wormwood: This badly-preserved photograph (from April 1st, 1926) is all that physically remains of the infamous Wormwood Estate, reportedly taken just two weeks ways before Dr. Harold Wormwood started his time-window device for the first / last time, which resulted in a massive flash of light, leveling the mansion and leaving a large crater in the middle of the surrounding Louisiana bayou. Nothing remained of the building, the machine, or the Doctor in the immediate area, and it seems no noise was made during the explosion. Some crackpot "experts" of the time believed that the time window caused the house and grounds to move out of time itself, moving either forwards or backwards depending on the machine's setting. Of course, the truth may never be known, as the sunken crater is now filled with water (and alligators) from the nearby bayou... ...and here is the same picture without the special Google Images filters. The rear of the mansion features a conservatory and the chimney flue. The house folds apart, with the rear section opening in quarters up to 90 degrees, while the conservatory opens up to 180 to allow for figure placement. (Technic pins hold the model shut for transport and ease of handling) The bottom floor features the living room, while the second floor is the bedroom, with bed and pipe organ, plus a beating the still-heart of Dr. Wormwood's beloved deceased wife, Myrtle. The third floor features more crazy experiments, plus the stairway to his greatest achievement, the time window! The right rear quarter features the conservatory and some furniture on the second and third floors. This section also has stairs from first to second floors. The left rear quarter features the fireplace and a frozen fly monster that is all that remains of his first teleportation window project. The stairs to the third floor are also on this side. This car was originally designed by Tom.Netherton1 from Flickr as his Mercedes-Benz SSK 'Count Trossi' (seen here ) I heavily modified it into the car seen here, and it still needs some work to match the online version. It is fitted it with a single driver's seat, spare tire, and a reddish brown paint scheme. The rear of the model features a spare tire and license plate, plus it fits a figure in the drivers seat. This concludes the post for now, as the real life house is on the to-build list, while the car is already (mostly) built in real bricks. As usual, comments questions and complaints are always welcome!
  18. Hi everyone, my latest building is a 16-wide Lego store, featuring the store from 60097 City Square and the VIP Store and Minifigure Factory GWPs plus a facade based on the Zehender house in Heilbronn (and a roof cornice of my own): The "Z" on top is a reference to the Zehender house. Simpler back side: Inside we start with many sets on the walls and a vintage poster (luckily I kept the STAMPs from set 1592 all these years): Pick-a-Brick wall upstairs... ...plus Build-a-Minifigure and bigger sets. Feel free to imagine what the huge Friends-colored set could be. :) Next floor: The Minifigure Factory didn't really fit as a factory into this small building, so it's a manufacture for special hand-painted figures: VIP cards are checked before you get access to the upper floors... And there's the VIP lounge - free drinks, chatting with employees and other fans, and exclusive previews of new sets such as the UCS Kessel Run MF... ...and if you got the money, you can buy a rare discontinued set from the display case or a vintage decorative brick from the top shelf: Want to take a selfie with Brick Girl? Go to the rooftop! » Flickr album Hope you like it...
  19. Hi guys, My last creation, a modular hospital... I 've done one many years ago, i made a topic with it, but the architecture and the level of details doesn't satisfy compared to my new creations and my city... So i tried to do something reallistic and functionnal for a little clinic... Hope you'll like it Who Broke his leg? A Modular hospital by Jean Macou, sur Flickr Who Broke his leg?

  20. MOC: The Money Laundering Launderette

    I’ve always believed that that little minifigs can be big criminals and so I present the Money Laundering Launderette. This is a MOC I wanted to build for quite some time now and use up those spare (unfortunately LEGO) 100 dollar notes I have lying around. The scene is pretty simple, the good guys (the police) have surrounded and are about to raid the Soap n’ Suds launderette, a front company for a crime organisation involved in smuggling contraband clone brands and dangerous addictive plastic substances among other things. An accountant who works for the gang and two heavily armed gunmen are deciding whether to fight or flee (presumably through the backdoor into the boiler room and out into the adjoining yard but who knows…) Two oblivious customers are also downstairs. The launderette does also actually wash clothes with 6 large 10kg capacity washing machines and dryers. Washes from €5, wash and dry €8. Special thanks to miniBIGS, BrickArms and BrickForge for the custom parts. More pictures of the inside on Flickr
  21. MOC Modular Travel Agency

    Here it is, my fourth modular building: it features two distinct buildings on a 48x32 footprint. The azure building has a travel agency on the ground floor, while you can find an antique shop in the dark red one. The upper floors are essential tourists apartments and are connected by a walkway on gothic arches. Hope you like it!
  22. MOC: Corporate Plaza

    Hey guys, Here's the third skyscraper in Wasabi District: Corporate Plaza! At just over 3 feet tall and over 5000 pieces, this 10-storey building is the first office skyscraper in Wasabi District! Yes, it's smaller than my previous buildings, but I finished it in 3 months, a record time for me finishing anything larger than a car! Granted, it's also a pretty basic design, one expected of modern, run-of-the-mill office skyscrapers. Interior shots should be coming up soon. Please, let me know what you guys think! In the meantime, you know what to do if you want to see more pics, check My flickr account for more shots. Check my Instagram account for more WIP pics of the skyscraper, as well as the general WIP status of Wasabi District. Thanks for looking!
  23. Hi Everyone I'd like to share my first MOC design which I've been working on over the past few weeks. I decided to set myself a challenge to see if I could create a Modular building using just the parts taken from 3 of my existing sets. All the parts I used were taken from the 3 Creator sets above, 31036, 31050 and 31065. The only extra thing I added was a green 16 x 32 baseplate but apart from that, everything else is taken from those 3 sets. So here is my very first MOC - The Modular Convenience Store As you can see the model is 16 studs wide and is designed to fit in with the Modular building series. There are 3 levels and although it's essentially one building, I wanted to give the impression from the outside that it consists of 2 narrow buildings side by side with the main shop on the left and the tall blue section to the right. Level 1 - The Convenience Store The first level of the building is the Convenience Store itself. Outside on the front we have a bench, street lamp, flower display and a fire hydrant. The main door at at the base of the blue tower gives access to the inside of the store. Inside the store there is a cash desk, fruit and vegetables and shelves with various items for sale. I also built a small shooping trolley for the minifigs to use with their shopping. A door at the back of the store gives access to the rear of the building. At the back is a staircase leading to the second level. Level 2 - Apartment On the middle level is an apartment / studio flat. On the outside is a large Bay window and a door with a Juliet balcony looking out on to the street below. The inside of the apartment is pretty small but I have managed to squeeze in a kithcen, TV, bed, lamp, shelves, table and stool. Level 3 and Roof Outside again the only way for the minifigs to reach the next level is via a ladder on the back of the building. The top level consists of a small building and a roof top garden. The roof top building is extremely small (6 x 4 studs) but the roof can be removed and inside is a table with binoculars, a lamp and a brick built sweeping brush hanging on the wall. A door from this small building leads out in to the roof top garden. Here we have a BBQ, seat, plants and a glass covered vegetable patch. Displaying the Model Here are a selection of pics showing the model on display alongside Parisian Restaurant and Assembly Square. Thanks for reading and I hope you like the model, feel free to let me know what you think.

  24. [MOC] House of the Inventor

    Hi everyone! First post! My name if Filip and even though I have been playing around with Lego for many years both as a kid and with my own kids I'm quite new to the AFOL-scene. I was encouraged to post this to Eurobricks by LegoModularFan who gave me some overwhelmingly nice comments on Flickr yesterday when I posted this so here goes! I created this for Brixtars modular building competition and this is my second attempt at a full fledged 32x32 modular building. My first building, "The Queens Brick" was quite square in it's shape so I wanted to challenge myself this time and put much more round shapes and angles in there. It was a lot of fun trying out different techniques where some worked better than others but I'm quite happy with the end result even though it will for sure not win any prizes for stability ;) Technically it doesn't really meet the requirements of a modular since I didn't put the technical bricks in there and the street is a bit narrow but it would be an easy enough mod to make it legal. Enough words and on with pictures of my steam-punkish house on the hill with a secret lab for horrible experiments on the top floor and a basement where the irresponsible owner pours his toxic waste out in the sewer system. Here is a link to the rest of the images: https://flic.kr/s/aHskuXCmdk It's quite often one sees micro builds of regular sized modulars but this was actually made the other way around. The idea started with an all digital micro build I did for a competition last year that looked like this: The instructions for the building is available on Brixtar but please bear in mind that the digital instructions are not 100%. For instance, the smaller roof used some parts that didn't actually exist so they need to be replace. Also both roofs need some very heavy reinforcing or they will, I know from hard experience, crumble in your hands :) But please use them as a source for inspiration if you wish! Last but not least, cred where cred is due; the fences/walls were created after inspiration from Jonas Kramms fantastic examples and the usage of tan skeleton legs for the decorations around the windows was something similar I saw a while ago but I couldn't find that image so I'm not sure who came up with it in the first place. Please let me know if you are the person who made that and i will of course mention you both here and on Flickr! Thanks for watching and please let me know both what you might like and what you might not like so I can learn and improve!
  25. What modular to buy for a 2x mod?

    Most of the my Lego "career" has been in the Technic line, but having started looking at modulars a year or so ago I got bit hard. I have all of them from PS on except for TH, but have only built PS so far because I just don't get as much building time as I'd like. I have been doing some old Town forum reading and have been enjoying reading about and seeing mods people have made to modulars by doubling up on them and making them wider, taller, deeper, etc. I'm not normally a moc'er or mod'er since my relaxation therapy is in the following of instructions and getting a beautiful or fun to play with model. However, I'm feeling inspired to dip my toes into mod'ing a modular by buying a double and seeing if I can squeeze any creative juices out of me. I think I can slip a single duplicate modular into the budget (and past the wife!) but am realistically limited to what Lego is still selling (so that means my options are AS, BB, PR, DO, DD). Now that it's double VIP points also, that makes it easier to consider. So, I'm wondering, if you were going to buy a single duplicate modular to build a 2x version from, which one would you pick? For some reason that I don't think I can explain,I have a slight leaning toward DO. Perhaps the pool hall interior has me itching to make a larger pool hall/pub interior. I don't really know so I'm curious what you all think. Thanks!
