  1. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Hi all, I figured that instead of hijacking everyone's threads with similar questions about modulars, to just create one thread where people can ask questions and the like. This way we are not junking up specific topics with questions about multiple modulars. I look forward to the discussion with everyone! ------------------------- First question for someone. In the Green Grocer instructions, I am having a hard time telling what color a few pieces are. I may just be colorblind, but I wanted to ask someone who has the set/would know. In step 6 of the Green Grocer, the part call out lists: 2 - 1 x 1 plates; 1 - 1 x 1 tile What color are these? Also, are the tiles also black that surround the white/medium blue tiles on the inside of the shop? Thank you!
  2. [MOC] Grand Palace Hotel

    Hi everyone, I've been building this hotel off and on over the past couple of years - most of the interior is still not built, but it was ready for display last weekend on Bricking Bavaria 2017: Hotel lakeside 5 (BB2017) by cimddwc, on Flickr Covering 5x2½ baseplates (including pavement and lake), featuring a total of 80 beds in 12 suites, 24 rooms and a group section, plus dining hall (presented earlier here), bar, two conference rooms, sun terrace, pool, gym, sauna, massage, lake access with a small beach and jet skis. Hotel streetside 2 (BB2017) by cimddwc, on Flickr Inspired mostly by the belle époque hotels in Montreux on the Lage Geneva shoreline, and others. In detail: General architecture: Montreux Palace, Suisse Majestic, Eden Palace Au Lac. Main colors: Montreux Palace, Suisse Majestic. Level of decoration: Montreux Palace. Raised ground floor: Eden. Corner turret: Eden. Main entrance: The Langham (London). Dining hall: Salle Empire (Hôtel de Paris, Monaco). Lego inspirations: Some gables by Jonas Wide Partial entrance decoration by eliza Hotel streetside 1 (BB2017) by cimddwc, on Flickr Hotel main entrance 2 by cimddwc, on Flickr Hotel jet skis by cimddwc, on Flickr Hotel sun terrace by cimddwc, on Flickr The interior of most of the basement and raised ground floor is complete: Reception, annual gathering of mascots and advertising characters: Hotel reception by cimddwc, on Flickr Hotel mascot conference by cimddwc, on Flickr Some shady business conference: Hotel business conference 1 by cimddwc, on Flickr Gym, pool, sauna and massage: Hotel gym by cimddwc, on Flickr Hotel pool by cimddwc, on Flickr Hotel massage and sauna by cimddwc, on Flickr » More images on Flickr Future changes will include a complete interior, a detachable side wall (on the left, opposite the dining hall) so visitors can look inside, and probably some lights. Further ideas and comments welcome, of course. Hope you like it. :)
  3. Hey! Welcome to the modular pedestrian street! It is not just a modular building! You are waiting for exciting adventures and search for hidden treasures! Let's try to find them first! More images of the project you can see here:https://ideas.lego.com/projects/158145This project is fully compatible with the official Lego modular buildings.The set is made in three basic plates 16 * 32: two - for buildings, one for the pedestrian zone.In the buildings there are jewelry store with jeweler's office, hostel, souvenir shop, small bakery/cafe, and the secret room with treasure. PLEASE SUPPORT THIS PROJECT here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/158145
  4. This modular station was inspired by a long since expired Cuusso / Ideas project, (not mine), and set 2150 Train Station from 1996. II added a clock suspended above the platform and removable six track long platform. I even put a wheelchair access ramp from the street side for use by the wheelchair pieces LEGO recently made. Underneath the clock (which is itself inspired by item I saw on Brick-Link) is where the name of the station / town goes on 1 x 4 bricks with side studs. It can say anything you want, but "Lego City Union Depot" is what I would put there. The street side of the station has been extended towards the edge of the base-plate, allowing for a more room (and more details!) inside the building. The lower floor has the central ticket desk and two inside waiting rooms located under the two left and right wings. These wings also allow for access to the platform under the twin canopies. The second floor has the switching control room and station managers office which floats inside the exterior walls on some tile-topped pillars. This assembly is barely connected to the build by two studs. (NOTE: No stairs to the upper floor were made because that's how the official CITY sets are, so I didn't include any. Besides, it would have messed with symmetry of the station!) The modular station features two platform sections, two lower roof sections, one upper roof section, and the removable second floor on top of a cafe (with seating) on the lower level. The station platforms fit via Technic pins while the other sections attach via a few studs. EDIT 10/16/17: Added new pictures of the revised station. EDIT: 11/20/17: added revised photos in preparation for real life pictures come Christmas morning. Comments, questions and complaints are always welcome!
  5. I'm happy to present to you my first modular building. I have put it on Ideas too, so if you like it, please support: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/106103. edit: It is now available on Rebrickable Some time ago my daughter got this Duplo set from her aunt: http://brickset.com/...ative-Ice-Cream That got me thinking I could use one of these cones for my own purposes, especially since my little one was very interested in throwing bricks across the room, instead of proper play (or maybe that was proper play ;) ). Anyway I borrowed four bricks from her (I honestly intend to give those back to her) and thought it would be nice to make a big advert out of this ice cream and make it rotate. Such an Ice Cream Parlor should have nice clientele drawn by this big sign of what's inside :) So power functions was a must. But since I was to integrate PF info a modular, why not go further and add some lights too? When I was young (long time ago...) I always liked things that moved and had lights :P so you can call it late compensation :P Later on I will present it module by module, but if you want to have a quick look at it in action, here's a video: Ok, so let's start with a view of all the modules separately: And now let's talk about the ground floor: As you can see, on the right there is the ice cream parlor with seating available inside and at the back of the building. You can buy ice cream, lemonade, donuts and coffee. The staff is taken from the Ice Cream Machine set :) I'm happy with the bench - it gave me some headache, but I wanted to have something distinctive. The lamp is also different to typical one, but it's nothing special. On the left there is an entrance to the owner's apartment. There is also a small storage room for bike. The top of it is removable for easier access, but you can get the bike in and out through the door (but it's tricky). Ok, now - the heart of the modular - the Power Functions module: All electronic components are here. That is: 1 Rechargeable battery 2 switches 3 sets of PF lights (so 6 sources of lights total) 1 M motor Of course apart from that there are also all the technic components to make it work. The motor is running the Duplo brick with a 1:9 reduction. The lights are provided for the ice cream parlor (4 of them), entrance to the staircase (1) and the apartment (1 for the table lamp seen above). My idea was to be able to control lights and motor separately, that's why I have 2 switches here. Look closely at the picture above. There are two holes for technic axles above. The one on the left is for access to the switch controlling the motor (advert). The hole on the right allows access to the switch controlling all the lights. Those go on/off simultaneously. You can't have just part of them on. That would require even more switches and there is simply no room for that. It's crammed inside already. Now, have a look at the bottom of this module where all the lights can be seen and the front of this module, which allows access to the rechargeable battery in case you need to recharge it (power cord access). Through the holes in the front section you can turn the battery on/off and change the voltage too. Now, the last two modules are the roof and the apartment of the owner. It's not much room inside - the advert required quite some space already, but it's cosy :P As you have seen already this apartment get light from the lamp on the table, which is actually part of the Power Functions module. Yes, I know the TV is kind of useless on that wall, but... hey, he wanted a TV so I gave him one :P So, how do you operate this thing? With a KEY :) and last, but not least - two pictures of it with lights on, and ambient lights off: Full gallery is available on my Bicksafe: http://www.bricksafe...ce_Cream_Parlor I hope you enjoyed this little presentation. Please consider support on Ideas: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/106103
  6. [MOC] Mini Buildings

  7. Choosing a set

    Hello. I'm new here so hopefully this is the right place for this topic. I've been wanting to get an advanced build type of set and have had my eye on the modular buildings for a few years now. I happen to have some spare cash so that I can finally get one. But of course deciding is proving rather difficult. Looking at just modular buildings it came down to three for me: Parisian Restaurant, Detective's Office, and Brick Bank. I'm leaning towards Parisian Restaurant, partially because it is the most aesthetically pleasing for me, but also because it has been out the longest, so will probably be retired soonest (am I right?). But the recent release of Old Fishing Store has me thinking about that set as it looks very nice too. Not to mention Destiny's Bounty. I know totally not in line with the others but still a very cool set. Thoughts?
  8. [MOC]: Palameria Commuter Station

    So I wanted to do something detailing the environment of a setting this time, rather than having a specific goal in mind. It started out as a library. I was going to have cool columns and a giant staircase, and then it turned into the grand entrance to a building. The building didn't quite come together right, so I made it into a futuristic train station! Included a couple mini figures, and there you have it! Here's the backstory I wrote up: On the far-off world of Palameria, the Senate of the Regency of Constellations is in session! Senator Cassandra Delgado, accompanied by an entourage of handmaidens and guard, has arrived at the capital. En route to a meeting with the Minister of Culture, Senator Delgado must deliver a mystical key, and receive a mysterious book in return! There are more pictures on the Flickr page here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/150692089@N03/with/37878034972/ And it's also up on LEGO Ideas! You can vote for it if you would like here: https://ideas.lego.com/projects/32c747e9-3b3c-4cbd-81d8-c4c05ae69316
  9. [MOC]: Winterfield Academy

    Welcome to Winterfield Academy, the premier arts academy for all of your minifigs! Governed by Headmistress Elba Rieter, this academy specializes in the arts! The first floor includes a grand entrance hall with front desk and a platform for a train station (Behind the school are tracks on which the Orient Express can arrive). The first floor also contains the dining hall, a trophy room, and the grand spiral staircase that ascends three stories. The second story includes a large choir classroom, a picture-lined hallway, a store closet that I'll soon be converting into a lavatory, and Headmistress Rieter's office. And the third floor/roof contains a ballet/dance studio and classroom, as well as a large portion that I haven't decided what to do with yet. But I think it's going to end up being the dormitory. I'm also planning on possibly doing a stop motion video series set around one of my mini figures encountering mystery and murder at the school! So we'll see how that goes. This MOC is also up on LEGO Ideas gathering support! If you wish please go support it! I'm including the link here. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/c3ebdf4f-1c75-435e-b09b-3f23788b535a Any ideas for the third floor, suggestions, comments on this MOC are much appreciated, thank you! :)
  10. Minifig-Scale Modular Trucks

    Hello there, Rob here and I have an idea to share with you good people, Not entirely sure if its a new idea or not but I thought it was worthy of sharing, Modular Minifig-Scale Vintage vehicles, Now you might be and probably are thinking that looks like a mess and yep it sure does look that way, Also I am sorry for the terrible potato quality photos. Lots of photos below sorry about that. Modules and special features Mail truck and Sign with opening rear door. Newspaper Delivery truck Fire engine and lights with opening side, 2x fire extinguishers, 3x ladder piece so quite a long reach, Other side has a hose reel and storage container. Gritter and snowplow attachment, Opening rear hatch should work to drop studs (its abit stiff though), Plow can be used left and right also abit stiff. Tow truck and lights, 5 joints providing pose-ability Flatbed with bikes Fire extinguisher promotional vehicle Wood flatbed with wood/Barrels when I find some Wooden bed And finally no modules More to come, If you have any ideas for more let me know :)
  11. [MOC] Fish&Sea Shop

    Hi to everybody, I want to introduce the Fish&Sea Shop. Something like Pet Shop by the sea... But with "siamese" architecture and an older style. This is how it ended up. The shop on the left is for fish eaters and the one on the right for sea tools buyers. The two buildings are almost identical with some slight difference in the colour palette. My aim was to give preminence to the azure, using various tone of blue for doors and windows. The ground floor is in grey to and a touch of brightness with red, dark orange and dark red in the roof. I'm proud of the chimneys. And the gray for the ground floor is due to create a whole with the basement. Some "marine" parts were added to give a sea feeling: Both the buildings have their hat on the top. Some oars to decorate and anchor parts used to create the big black window below the roof. That's it. Hope you enjoyed. Advices are always welcome! p.s. Finally some interiors (not my favourite part of the game)... See you!
  12. Here is my latest Modular MOC, a Tiki Bar & Restaurant with a townhouse next door. I completed this MOC in the spring but just got around to photographing it this past week, so I thought I would share it here. This will be a very image-intensive post, so if you want to see all of the images on Flickr, check out my album here! Here's the full front view, with both buildings side by side. A closer view of the facade of the Tiki Bar. I named the bar HAU after the Infected Bionicle mask that adorns the entrance. Now to look inside! The A-frame Archway clips on and can easily be removed in order to access the individual floors. The A-frame Archway, Disassembled from the main structure. Top floor of the Tiki Bar. The chef prepares Polynesian-inspired chicken and seafood recipes in the kitchen. The best seats in the house are at the banquet table on this floor, giving diners a unique experience. The second floor of the restaurant and the bottom floor of the townhouse. More townhouse pictures are coming up. This floor of the restaurant has an opening that overlooks the bar below. The dining tables on the second floor. The walls are adorned with traditional Polynesian-inspired Tiki decor such as nautical paraphernalia and seashells, and globe lamps light the restaurant from above. Overlooking the bar below is a loft area with a giant Tiki idol and a colorful banner. The stairs leading to the top floor have some hidden skulls beneath them. All of the great Tiki bars have lots of hidden details. The bottom floor of the restaurant, with the bar and additional dining areas. The bar area has lots of traditional Tiki mugs lining the shelves made from an old boat hull. Another large Tiki statue looms from the archway in the back. The front door from the inside, showing the torches that help to create the appropriate level of lighting. The lavatory is hidden off in the area behind the bar. After getting past the Tiki idol on the ground floor, patrons will find the stairs to the upstairs level, along with a door to the outside... ...where they can find cozy outdoor patio with intimate seating for two. And now, for the adjoining townhouse: The top floor of the townhouse, with a loft-style bedroom and bathroom. The townhouse bathroom. The open kitchen on the first floor, with a small dining nook. A cozy living area allows the resident to watch their favorite TV shows or relax with a good book. The back of the apartment has a small porch with flowerbeds and seating. Thanks for looking! Again, the whole gallery can be located here!
  13. [MOC] Art Déco Gas Station

    Fill 'er up! My latest build is a jump into the glory days of gas stations, when full service and free oil changes were the rule and the local station was a gathering place for neighbors. My brick-built gas station is inspired to the Shell one located in Tucson (Arizona) and it’s packed with every details you’d expect to find. It showcases an elegant Art Déco architecture completed with curved corners, a tower in the middle, a red outline all around the station and the inevitable Shell writing on top. The build is three in one: the diner on the left, the garage/workshop on the right and the fully-equipped store located in the middle of the building. A look at the back of the station reveals the three locations with many details and the different characters. Outside there are two period gas pump with a beautiful Lego shell on top under a curved canopy. All around you can find tanks, signs, tyres and other stuff. To complete the work I've built a red stepside pick-up truck, a tan Hot Rod and a reddish-brown roadster with some troubles (it's housed in the garage indeed). It was on my wishlist long since and finally I've found the time to built it as I had in my mind. I'm sorry for posting my gas station here with a little delay Thanks for stopping by.

In an ideal world, I'd love to sell any two of those sets to someone because I could just reship in those boxes, knowing they are sturdy enough to send them in.
  15. Apartment Block "Blue Whale"

    This is an apartment block that students live in. I walk by it frequently and had a rush of inspiration to create a model of it. See more pictures at Flickr. Thanks for looking!
  16. Modular Cheese Shop and Museum

    Hi everyone, this is the second part of my Amsterdam project: a modular canal house containing a cheese shop with bistro and a small cheese museum that explains how cheese is made. (First part: book shop) The shop area and bistro. The mezzanine is easily removable. The cheese museum on the 2nd floor. A small appartement on the upper two floors for the shop owner. More pictures can be found here. I hope you like it. C&C welcome.
  17. [MOC] MOONEYES headquarters

    My latest build matches my passion for motoring culture: it's the MOONEYES headquarters located in Santa Fe Springs, California. MOONEYES was founded by Dean Moon in 1950, the Santa Fe Springs-based hot rod shop was originally titled Moon Speed Equipment. The Moon crew was a prominent group of go-fast pioneers through the ‘50s and ‘60s, working hand in hand with the likes of legends such as Carroll Shelby — in fact, the first AC Cobra was constructed in the Moon garage. Inspired by the Dean Moon’s history I've recreated the MOON HQ, both the interior and the exterior of the building. In the garage there’re a lot of tools: a roller cabinet, a workbench, the pendant lights, a sink, the column drill press and a lot more. Everything in bright yellow of course. Remarkable the American flag hanged on the wall and the electrical outlets and conduits. What about the surfboard displayed on the wall? The exterior is enjoyable and it features many details. The two rolling shutters and the electricity poles are the ones I prefer. To complete the work I've built the well known and famous MOON pick-up, a ’68 Ford F100, and a Hot Rod based on a ’32 Ford model B. More info and pictures on my flickr. Thanks for stopping by.
  18. As there is no news of the new modular, let me show you one i have been working on. It is narrow.. 8 studs wide! I always wanted to make a 8 wide modular as a challenge and now i had to for a reason. so here it is. The back: the inside: I left one side open like this because it is so narrow, and this way the inside can be displayed and the first floor has a small livingspace. it can just fit, stair, kitchen, couch and TV the top floor has a bathroom, a shower and a toilet and here it is in my city. (now you can see why it has to be so narrow. there is a big crowd watching the classic F1 GP!... and eating pizza duh.. Let me know What you think! I would like to see some more 8 wide modulars
  19. [MOC] Modular: Town Bed & Breakfast

    Welcome to the Town Bed and Breakfast! This family owned and operated establishment is nearing its third generation of host and offers all the comforts of home to weary travelers in a warm and cozy building. This bed and breakfast on the city’s main street was established by David Brickenen, a well regarded historian, traveller and adventurer. David spent his life traveling the world working with researchers, archeologists, biologists and historians furthering the knowledge of of the brick world. Never a treasure hunter, his drive was academic in nature taking only knowledge and information and never artifacts or objects. As he got older he found he could no longer go on expeditions like he used to but still wanted to help others and further the enthusiasm of adventure. He decided to settle down in his favorite region and open this bed and breakfast, offering comfortable lodging, good food and only the best of area knowledge and information to tourists, explorers and adventurers alike. He found this structure, an old masonry apartment building left vacant as the result of nearby brand new developments and decided to give it new life. He and his wife reconditioned the floors, lacquered the wooden window frames and cleaned and restored as much of the original building as possible keeping in-tact the building’s history and feel. Minifigures and minibuilds: Sadly David Brickenen is no longer with us, but his son, Abraham, and his granddaughter Libby carry on his spirit and operate the bed and breakfast with the same love and esprit de corps: Abraham Brickenen is the current owner who along with his daughter, Libby, carry on the family legacy. Abraham takes great pride in the cleanliness and presentation of the bed and breakfast, he never misses a spot. He takes great satisfaction in having one of the tidiest buildings in town, from taking care of all the laundry and bedding, making up the rooms and keeping the whole place clean. He is also quite the handyman and mechanic with a bit of a green thumb, if its not a broom or cleaning product in his hands its a wrench or spackle or trowel and soil. No job is too big, from water heaters, to plumbing and A/C. If Abraham wants it done right, as he always does, then he does it himself. Libby Brickenen helps maintain the guest booking lists, cooks all the food, maintains the kitchen and restaurant and offers up the guests all the best information on places to see and things to do in town. She is renowned in town for her culinary skills and after the guests have had their breakfast and take off for the days activities she offers a few lunch hours where local town residents can come and eat. David's spirit of adventure is very much carried on by Libby, who, like her grandfather has a great fondness for history and exploration. There are no secrets with Libby as she is happy to share the best vistas, locations and things to do in the area. If however you’re more in the mood to sit back, relax and keep it local then she serves the best breakfast food in town which can be ordered all day long. The rest of the minifigures: Travel-writing couple. These two work for a well known travel and exploration publication. The girl is quite the shutterbug taking all the fabulous photos and video for the publication while the guy writes all the articles. The guy is quite a food enthusiast but sometimes he’s a bit too adventurous when trying out local cuisines and winds up spending a bit more time in the bathroom than he’d prefer. The mother and daughter are in town for a children’s orchestra. These are the best kid musicians in the region and they’re here to play an outdoor concert featuring music from the likes of Amadeus Brickzart and Antonio Brickvaldi. Everyone seems to love the music even if its just a few minutes of practice in their bed and breakfast room, everyone except one guy. The adventurous aunt (left). She’s retired and her kids are all grown up so she’s determined to spend her free time seeing as many places and things this brick world has to offer. This lionhearted aunt has been all over the world and her kindness and ability to relate to complete strangers leads her to making friends and getting local travel tips everywhere she goes. She always seems to know exactly where she’s going. (Abby the cabbie pictured right). Businessman and This Guy. Out of town corporate fat cat. We’re not really sure where he’s from but judging from the ostentatious shiny pinstriped suit and condescending attitude the townsfigures are guessing he’s from a large multinational company in Brick York. He seems to always have a scorn on his face and when angry he frequently mentions how he ‘could buy this whole town and turn it into an open pit mine’ despite the fact that the area isn’t particularly rich in minerals. He seems to rub everyone the wrong way. No ones really sure why he’s in this small city but rumor has it that it involves a large land deal that isn’t in the best interest of the townsfigures. This guy. Not much is known of him. Some say he’s ex-military or law enforcement but he tends to keep to himself. The only thing he’s known around town for is making a bunch of local kids return a couple of stolen bicycles to their rightful owners so he seems to have a highly developed sense of morality, drive for justice and is obviously quite a convincing fellow. Come to think of it ever since that rude businessman showed up he’s been seen more than usual, and since when does he ride a scooter? Maybe he knows something we don’t. The biologist and chemist are in town researching a few invasive species of insects and plants. They normally work via remote correspondence but they have come here together to do some more field research in order to collect a few more fresh sample organisms and control test some possible solutions as these non-native species have been decimating some of the local fauna and leading to a decline of other insects. The firefighter and police officer are two of Libby’s best friends. They stop by at least twice a week for lunch to get her absolutely amazing bacon grilled cheese or French toast. Abraham likes having public safety come by and they know better than to bother inspecting the robustness of the locks or integrity of the fire extinguishers as he is always on top of maintenance and safety. This is Abby. The daughter of a former off road rally competitor and instructor, she was trained by the best. When she’s not teaching driver’s education to teenagers she likes to drive the taxi as she’s most happy behind the wheel of an automobile, gets paid to do it and earns some generous tips for her skill and knowledge of all the areas roads and locales. That is until she gets a back seat driver or snobby and rude fare, then she turns into what the townsfigures have nicknamed her; the crabby cabbie. Better to just enjoy the ride and be nice unless you want to lose your lunch because theres a 150-piece vomit clean up fee and she knows how to achieve it. Taxi fare meter with flag drop indicator and passenger (not back seat driver) capacity: Crabby Cabbie two-wheeling: Collection of grandfather clocks, one for each floor. Don't worry, the chimes have been disabled so you can sleep in as long as you like: Kitchen and restaurant builds: All floors: Ground floor: Abraham's favorite room, cleaning and supplies: Upper floors: Some last-minute practice before the big concert: Much to the ire of the rude businessman who has subsequently destroyed his room: The biologist won't sleep tight until she inspects the room for any critters: Uh oh, a bit too adventurous with the local cuisine again: Taking in the view: Each room features a full bathtub and shower with complimentary soaps: Rooftop featuring seating, a hottub, radio, large capacity water heater, A/C, television antenna: Ahhhhh, relaxation: Rooftop gathering fun time: Thanks for visiting and come back anytime!
  20. MOC Modular Construction Site

    My Name is Ryan Taggart. I design my modulars using LDD, and source bricks through Bricklink & Brickowl. This is my third completed MOC Modular. The Crane is a redesign of the 2006 set 7905-1 (the tower, controls, and rear end are new - the boom is like the set [hard to improve on] ) It also features a home for the 'portaloo' from Service truck 60073-1 The custom printed elements were done by FAB Bricks UK. For details and for the design and thought process visit me @ MOC Pages. http://www.moc-pages.../moc.php/424271 NOW LIVE ON LEGO IDEAS https://ideas.lego.com/projects/129250 UPDATE - 18th Feb 2016 24 DAYS IN 5000+ SUPPORTERS! THANK YOU EVERYONE I've added more images: hope you like it.
  21. My latest modular is a Surf & Ski Shop with a Travel Agency upstairs. Detail of the shop windows: First floor interior: Travel Agency on the 2nd Floor: (First time making my own decals.) Finally, next to my Kitchen Store for size comparison. Thanks for looking!
  22. Do you feel it? Feel these smells? In the air there is a quaint mixture of flavors of fresh baked bread, strong coffee, young cheese, spring flowers and of course the most fashionable perfume. Dear friends, welcome to Paris! I invite you for a walk along the Parisian pedestrian streets. In this set I decided to recreate a little piece of this beautiful city. A wide pedestrian street is divided into 2 narrow streets to simulate the winding streets of Montmartre. This project is called "Parisian alleys" This is the continuation of my modular pedestrian street. Like the first set this set has its own interesting story and plot for the game.

  23. Hey guys! Hope you like this modular/landmark mash-up of Venice's Piazza San Marco! It sits on two 32x32 plates, so it's double a modular building and 16 studs larger than Assembly Square. The most prominent feature definetly is the Campanile. The Campanile stands somewhere around 80cm/20 inches -about the same size as the Disny Castle!-. Next to it sits the Palazzo Ducale, the palace of the dukes, but here it houses a library. This model is so huge I had to cut down on interior space and back walls. The back walls are now just some panels to save pieces. Even though, it still has some 4700. I did overuse a bit the flower stud in white... Aside from that, note that I made specific capitals for each column and I used the ingot in sand green, which looks awesome! The rooftop details are ALWAYS the most fun to build, so here's what I did for this building: window pieces with one of the new pyramid tiles on top! Easy but very effective. Also see the Christmas tree as tile decoration on the street! Hope you like this project as much as I do, and check out my Flickr account for extra pictures! https://www.flickr.com/photos/138575523@N07/ Profile https://www.flickr.com/photos/138575523@N07/35673433765/in/dateposted-public/ Extra Picture
  24. (MOC) Constitution Bar WIP

    Here's a modular that is currently a work in progress. Still a lot of work to do on floor 2 and 3 but just looking for any finishing touches people could recommend for the bar portion. I do plan on swapping out my breakaway wall to be dark tan so it won't feel so industrial. Thanks in advance! 20170727_003951 by David Kerkes, on Flickr 20170801_004905 by David Kerkes, on Flickr 20170730_001243 by David Kerkes, on Flickr 20170801_004022 by David Kerkes, on Flickr 20170801_004944 by David Kerkes, on Flickr
  25. I like to present you my Lego town Steinbruck. The name is from Stein=brick & bruck(old German)=bridge. This is my current layout: My MOC and MOD buildings (more detail pictures in the albums; just click the pictures to get there): I'm planning a car wash for the Service Station and will build it in the next months. I also build digital, but can't afford all of them to build with bricks. Click to album.
