    [MOC] Micro city

    Hello! A year and a half ago, I saw somewhere on Flickr a building assembled on something like that. The idea came up to assemble an entire city from such buildings. At first standart basis were used, then doubled and quadruplet, and sometimes more. During this time two cities were built. I will share renders for those who are intrested. First city Original here I will continue to add buildings in the comments. Thank you for attention :)

    The home of Ole kirk MOC

    hello LEGO fans around the world today 10th August 2022 lego celebrates their 90th anniversary and to celebrate I made a LEGO ideas MOC called THE BEGINNING OF THE LEGO HISTORY (90TH ANNIVERSARY Based on Ole kirk's house the place where the LEGO Group began their journeyIf you would like to see this one day become a real LEGO set and reach 10,000 support, please share and support it than at lego ideas:)https://ideas.lego.com/s/p:ddb75bfdf7644f8386cb25501c7a685eI also wish every LEGO fan and AFOL a happy 90 years of play and let's hope for many more great years to come. In the middle of the roof is a handle where you can easily lift the roof and view the details underneath. The office is the place where Ole Kirk came up with his ideas. In the office there are construction drawings of the house and of the wooden toys like the duck and a bus. The room contains several details such as an old-fashioned phone on the wall and a typewriter on the desk and many more small details to discover. the living room is the please where Ole Kirk can quietly drink a cup of tea while his grandson Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen builds a LEGO rocket with the new prototype parts in the year 1958. There is also a seating area in the living room. the store was the place where Ole Kirk sold his wooden toys like a number of iconic like the fire truck a blue car - truck - locomotive - plane and the wooden duck naturally. I also added an easter egg that refers to the Wooden Minifigure from 2019.
  3. This is Assembly Square 10255 but slightly reduced to the scale of micro figur. Micro Assembly Square is my newest MOC but my first micro scale construction. I added as much detail as I could into the build. I think this is the most cheerful set of all high street sets. Nice shops with many play options. Not only did I make the building in micro format, but I also reduced the interior and street details to micro format so that you can really play with it again on a small scala.
  4. A minifig scale replica of the Sremska Mitrovica library. Around 5000 bricks were used to build this MOC. First a picture of the real thing for comparison.

  5. Marko is just about to try and return to the river to catch some more fish, while Sascha is drying the previous catch. A small furry friend is looking with anticipation waiting for Sascha to leave. -- Will probably be part of a larger layout together with https://flic.kr/p/2mMtevr -- It started out as a tryout to use a post-and-beam technique and evolved to this house. The stone base of the house is 10x10, with some jumper magic, the bottom of the house is 9x9, before expanding to the front to 10x9 studs for the floors above and the roof.

  6. The 1st of July is an important day for the Greek Parliament building. This year marks 87 years since July 1st, 1935, when the 5th National Assembly solemnly began its work in the new Plenary Hall of the Parliament, thus establishing the role of the building that remains the same to this day. Wanting to honor the history of my country and highlight one of the country's most emblematic neoclassical buildings, I decided to build it with the use of LEGO (in the spirit of the Architecture series) the parliament building, as well as the square with the monument dedicated to the Unknown Soldier. Hellenic Parliament by George Patelis My model consists of 4,842 pieces and measures 35cm x 51cm x 19cm and marks my first attempt to create something in Architecture style. The flag, which is the only non-LEGO element, is my wife's creation, using the macrame technique. More photos can be found on my FlickR account! Below, you can read some of the most important historical elements of the building; The Parliament Building, was built from 1836 to 1843 in the design of Friedrich von Gaertner, to house the palaces of Othon. In 1922, the palace ceased to be used and due to the circumstances after the Asia Minor Disaster, they were housed in it government agencies, private social agencies, and various international organizations. In 1925 a small building was erected in the grounds of the Old Palace, which is known to this day as "Palataki" and in 1928 the Monument to the Unknown Soldier, designed by the architect Emmanuel Lazaridis, was built and thus changed the facade of the building in relation to the surrounding area. Then, in November 1929, the Government of Eleftherios Venizelos, after many discussions, decided to house the Parliament together with the Senate, in the building of the Old Palaces. The works for the conversion of the building into a House of Parliament and Senate were plans of the architect Andreas Kriezis, and it was the most radical intervention in it, after the initial construction and gave it its present image. Finally, some of the most important aesthetic interventions on the outside of the building were the placement of the statue of Harilaos Trikoupis and Eleftherios Venizelos, works by the sculptor Yiannis Pappas, in the western enclosure of the building, and in 2003 the placement of the statue of the Mother of Christos Kapralos in the eastern precinct.

  7. With the reissuing of the Black Falcon’s faction in the current Blacksmith set and in the lego creator 3 in 1 castle set, I thought it was the right time to give the Black Falcons back a proper fortress. For me such a fortress has to be based on the iconic fortress in set 6074 from 1986. Lego already did a re-release in 2012, but this was an exact copy of the 1986 set. Now 10 years later, with modern lego bricks we can give it a fresh new look up to today’s standards. Like in the orginal set, in my build the front of the fortress has 2 octagonal towers surrounding the drawbridge. This special tower shape gave the 1986 set it’s iconic look, so this shape was a must to include in this MOC. In the back of the fortress, the defensive walls in the corners are also half octagonal shaped to continue this unique look. Also like in the original in the back on the right side, there is a square tower with a pyramid shaped black roof (with the old style slopes). In the back on the left, I deviated somewhat from the orginal layout to create much larger living quarters. The yellow-black wall in the watchtower in the 1986 set is replaced by a whole yellow-black dining room on the first floor and an attic on top in this section. The positioning of the roof and chimney are pretty close to the orginial, but way bigger. There's a lot of detail cramped up in a 40x40 brick footprint so it can be used as a display piece on a shelf. But like the 6074 set it can open up completely and every function becomes accessible. Play functions: a drawbridge a forge a kitchen a dining room an attic for storage with pulley system a market/shop a jail a water well a secret wall I’m still waiting on some parts to finish the live build, so therefore I finished it first in studio and created already some renders. Actual photo’s will be added later on.

  8. A little LEGO Digital Designer project I have been working on since the beginning of March...now rendered in stud.io using highest settings and a very large size of 4800x3600 Odense Banegård The train station was drawn by Danish architect Heinrich Wenck and built in 1913-1914 in the city of Odense, Denmark. It was used as such until 1995. The building was later bought by the city, housing the city's music library for several years. The actual Odense Banegård My model: Scale: Minifig or approx. 1:50 Area: 3 x 8 baseplates 32 x 32 Number of parts: 23.223 The ground floor consist of 2 wings and 1 main building which all can be separated. The roof consists of six sections which can be removed, giving access to the building inside. The platform consists of multiple sections which can all be clicked together for added stability. Frontside: Facing one of the city's many old parks, Kongens Have (The Royal Garden), separated only by road (and a light rail line from 2021). Trackside: A mix of its appearances during different ages with a few modern train station equipment added as the building isn't used as such anymore...and I didn't want to fill this side completely with bicycles Rigth wing: Facing musikhuset Posten (live music venue) which was originally built as a parcel post office in the same architectual style. The two buildings are separated only by a small paved area, now a parking lot. Left wing: Facing Danhostel Odense City or what is left of the hotel when the new monstrosity Odense Banegård Center was being built in 1995 and needed the space. The main clock: The main platform doors:

    [MOC] Adaptive Architects

    Adaptive Architects is a 32x32 modular building, and the third fully custom modular that I've designed and created, from initial sketches to final build with instructions- the complete Lego product cycle, as far as a single person can at least! THE BUILDING The building was done in the style of a turn of the century American brick building, that has been rehabilitated as an adaptive reuse project, preserving the façade of the original building, but improving it for modern efficiency standards with corrugated iron woven into the structure of the existing brick. I wanted to play with the idea of a "solid" façade mixed in with the very square glass and metal structures that you see in a lot of swanky new developments in major downtowns. Of course, it also has to fit with the other modular buildings in order to really be called a successful modular building, right? The in-set porch gives a pleasing difference in depth compared to the rest of the modular street, and I think that it looks right at home with other American style modulars such as the Detective's Office and Brick Bank- the roof height of the "original" sections of the building match up with the existing rooflines, while the adaptive section rises above, both conveying how it was an addition on top of the existing building, AND giving a sort of observation platform to the rest of the modular street- a perspective that I feel like fits the adaptive reuse idea of melding the past (sight lines to the other buildings) with the future (lots of glass letting in light and opening the space above the more crammed street below). Of course, with such a heavenly, god-like view, who should get the penthouse suite but the head architect of the firm? I made liberal usage of the 1x2x2 window frame as cast iron legs for furniture throughout the building, both to decrease the overall number of part types required to build it AND because I feel like that sort of solid, thick steel construction is big in that neo-industrial aesthetic these days. I borrowed the design for the drafting boards from 4000034 System House- I just created my own arm out of the 3L bar pieces and adapters instead of the 3d printed solution or brick-built alternate used there. I also changed the boards to green, because all my experience with drafting boards has had them green, and not white! Finally, the lobby is the most detailed and colorful, in the Modular tradition. There's an architectural model, some project the firm is known for; the reception desk replete with minimalist logo for the firm; and a seating area with those moderately uncomfortable velvet stool things that are almost definitely there to look good and not be sat on! THE DESIGN PROCESS The initial form for this build came the way I always do it- some mood board research on Google, combined with ideas I amass day to day, and then some sketching to try and rough out a shape for the build. As you can see here, the porch has been a constant, even if the design of the rest of the building shifted around a good bit. However, as these things go, I wasn't happy with my first pass. It was too blocky and uniform. It didn't have the whimsy and charm that the Modular buildings embody for me. And that top gable didn't translate the way I'd hoped it would. So it was back to the drawing board. As you can see, this sketch ended up being MUCH closer to the final design. Parts were retroactively added, but the majority of the shaping came from this drawing. I find that combining the unlimited palette of Stud.io with the conceptual freedom of sketching does a great job in helping me to refine an idea without having access to the bricks needed to rapidly prototype. The boondoggle of the build was this gable, however. What I wanted to do was to have plates make up the roof portion, and a nice clean façade beneath them. What I quickly realized, however, was that the Lego system is not friendly to SNOT angles without an overhang, and that I would need a number of parts that do not exist (in dark orange, no less) to accomplish my vision the way I'd...envisioned it. So back to the drawing board (you can see my sketch for the roof done with standard roof bricks in the sketch above- that left page was done after the one to the right). Once I'd acquiesced to using plain old roof bricks, the construction of the build really flowed from there. This is my second draft, with incomplete interior and missing a lot of detailing on the upper floors. But the overall shape and character of the building was complete at this point. The little cornice/ornamentation at the top of the left column of the building took a bit of iteration. I was trying to go for a sort of wrought iron/rusted steel vibe with it, pulling inspiration from many of the buildings on my mood board. Ultimately I went with a more textured version of this that separated the brown section below and the wrought iron section on top, with a bit of the medium azure to carry through the accent color and really make it pop. FINAL THOUGHTS Thank you for reading and viewing my MOC! I'm really proud of this build and happy with how it came out. I feel that I successfully carried out the concept I was going for, and capturing the aesthetic I wanted. My favorite part is probably using the hinge bricks in brown as detail on the 2nd floor in order to get a more compact "recessed" pressed metal detail. Instructions are available through Rebrickable!

    [MOC] Corner Bakery

    It's been a while since I've built a MOC worthy of posting here, but I'm back with something special! This is my third modular building MOC, which is a three storey building with a "Bakery" on the ground floor and an apartment on the upper floors. It's a very generic premise as per the usual with my modulars. But hopefully it's design can make up for that. This MOC was originally copied inspired by a painting by Carole Spandau: When I came across this painting, I thought it almost looked like the perfect design to translate into LEGO form, the simplicity in it's shape and colors was too convincing. However, what ensued was a year long ordeal of futility and learning just how inexperienced I was. (ie. I didn't know how 45 degree walls are supposed be built or what a 3-4-5 triangle is, no joke.) I remember deeming the project impossible and giving up a few times, but my stubbornness saw it through and now we're here! I stole borrowed building techniques from 10264 Corner Garage and 71741 Ninjago City Gardens for the 45 degree walls in this building, which ended up being very simple and I didn't have to resort to the convoluted 2x2 turntable method. A noteworthy aspect about this middle apartment floor is the stairway. I've made it so that the stairway would join seamlessly if you stack multiples of the same floor, which would be the first time I made an actual "modular" building. (Official LEGO modulars always does this and I only learned about it not very long ago...) This roof module ripped off was very much inspired by 10270 Bookshop. The back of the roof is separable from the front to access the interior. Due to the larger space I was able to add more furniture. However, this part of the building was the real troublemaker throughout the designing process. I was searching every possible legal method of building angles and was making some wild calculations that got very out of hand. In the end, a simple 3-4-5 triangle did the job, and the corner of the roof is just held with hinge bricks. As a bonus, a toilet is included at the separate back portion of the roof since there was extra space to spare. (Toilet bowl obscured by walls.) I added a window to prevent a claustrophobic experience. I would also like to mention the (rather ineffective) skylight, it is made with 2x6x2 Train Windows and I think it looks pretty cool. Overall building this model was one heck of a ride, and I learned the most lessons out of it. Though I wish I could say to myself that completing this model proves that nothing is impossible, I'm sure some project in the future will swing a spiked mace to my face. Number of pieces: 2,685 (I promise to myself I will achieve a sub 2,500 parts modular someday, if the Downtown Diner was able to, so will I!! ) More pics on Flickr ps: Instructions are available too: https://rebrickable.com/mocs/MOC-104807/ExeSandbox/corner-bakery/#comments (Did I mention I only used available part colors? )

    MOD: 60329 School Day

    I made several changes to the school and the school bus. Added some walls to the right side of the school building and a roof. For the school bus, I removed the wheelchair lift as it made the bus look weird. Don't get me wrong, I have great respect and support for the handicapped. I just feel that it wasn't executed properly there. There was barely any room for the students. I decided to add an extra seat there instead. I also changed the wheel arches and recolored the sign to yellow and bumpers to black to closely resembled an American styles school bus. I customized it with my favorite school bus model, the Chevrolet B-Series with a Blue Bird bus body, in mind. Those things had power to spare. My sigfig drives the bus in this set.

    A-Frame Cabin

    A-Frame Cabin An architectural icon from 1950 to about 1975, the A-frame is one of my favourite rural homes ever, a triangle-design built for lounging on outdoor decks and staring at nature. I built this cabin inspired, in part, by Harlan Hubbard's book Payne Hollow, about living a simpler life in a hand-built home. The author is considered by many a modern-day Thoreau. Two brothers, Dan and Ethan, burned out on modern working believed that stripping away modern comforts and living more simply in nature would lead to a more spiritually an creatively fulfilling life. They looked for a cabin in the woods and finally found out this old wooden A-Frame Cabin. They fixed up it and now they live there happily. It's not my first cabin in the woods but it was very funny building the "A" structure and trying to add many weird details. I also played with the light to let the scene as deep as possible. To build the basement I ripped off the clever hammers technique by Letranger Absurde. Below few pictures Hope you like it!
  13. This project is based on the house of Ole Kirk Kristiansen, the founder of the LEGO group that celebrates its 90th anniversary this year. I made several rooms in the house. The workroom contains various details such as his typewriter and various blueprints. If you want you can support this project https://ideas.lego.com/s/p:ddb75bfdf7644f8386cb25501c7a685e

    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!

    Modular Town House

    Hello Everyone. I present you my first ever modular building... It is my version of a town house with inner parking space. I got the inspiration of the Creator 3 in 1 - 4954 - Town House. It is a really simple build, without any extreme building techniques and a small range of parts. I tried to use only existing colors for the parts. I am not very pleased with the back of the building, where the door to the garden is, but I didn't give it much thought, since it is on the back of the building. The house went through so many change for this couple of days, but this is the final product. You can see more images in the link below Darin Doychev | Flickr I would like to hear your thoughts. Thank you.

  20. Hi everyone. I'm new here, and I really, really wanted to show you my latest MOC... the legendary Scrooge McDuck's Moneybin. The project is also available on Lego Ideas (link at the end of the post), but first let me give you a tour, so you can check with your eyes if it's worth your vote . Be sure to scrool the pictures till the very bottom. I promise you won't regret it. LEGO SCROOGE MCDUCK'S MONEYBIN by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr This is the front, with the iconic huge dollar sign. The armored door is the first element of playability: it can be opened and closed pulling the two bars attacched at the side of each half. Also, it is not very clear from the picture, but the small stairway has two lion heads at the bottom, to give the entrance an imposing and intimidating touch As you can see is quite a tall building (33,3 cm, or if you prefer 34 bricks, from the baseplate to the top of the dome). On the roof we have the famous dome, that here I adapted into an helicopter landing pad. I couldn't not include the cannon to shoot at the evil Beagle Boys and a telescope to read the newspapers for free. Ok, now the interior. I wanted this set to be fun for adults to build and extremely fun for kids to play with, so it had to be easy to access every feature. The easiest way was to put the front wall on a separeted baseplate, so all you have to do to 'get in' is to push it away. As for the floors, they can be easily removed thanks to the trail design: they slide in the groove bricks inside the external walls, so it's easy to get into action And now the ground floor. I designed to be the most intimidating possible. Imagine: you are a business man and you have a meeting with the richest and toughest duck in the world. As soon as you enter, you don't have the time to enjoy the nice floor with dollar mosaic because you notice that a security camera is pointing at you. The frame with "TIME IS MONEY" also is not very welcoming, you wait your turn on the green sofa... and then you realize that is placed right in front of a giant anti theft protection cannon. As if it this wasn't enough, you also have a Scrooge McDuck's painting that seems look at you. AND IT IS, because that wall hides a secret passage, with an hole to spy from behind the painting... but what's so important that Scrooge wants to hide? Treasures, of course. What else do you expect from the richest and most adventurous duck in the world? Notice also the black lever to turn back the secret passage ;) Here you can enjoy the anti-theft protecion cannon in action... "Say hello to my little friend" And now the first floor, with the private rooms of Scrooge. On the corridor, a picture of him from when he was to work as gold prospector in Klondike, but most of all, the frame that says "There is no such a thing as talent, only inspiration and ambition". But let's see better the others room... Have you ever tried sleeping on a canopy bed made of 100 dollar bills? Trust Scrooge, you will sleep like a baby Sleep well, but get up early: Scrooge knows it well, he even has a frame in front of his bed to remember it. On the bedside table, a nice family picture from great comic writer Don Rosa. SALON 1 by Matteo Sperati, on Flickr And now the salon, or is it better to call it "Worry Room" ? Why do you think that carpet is threadbare that way? Scrooge's nervous walking, of course. What a shame, it was only 60 years old . We also have a library, a pendulum clock and a marble bust with laurel leaves (I can easily Scrooge get inspired by great leaders from the past). Here is Scrooge, literally showering in money, happy as a baby. He even has the shower curtain made of dollars And finally the second floor, with his big office. This is definitely my favorite floor, I made sure to put EVERY SINGLE DETAIL that I remember from the comics: EVERY SINGLE ONE. There is the giant vault door, the display case with his beloved number 1 dime, the earth globe, the weelbarrow full of coins, the pyramid of coins with Donald polishing them, the money bags, the graphic wih his profits skyrocketing, the gun on the wall, the desk with multiple phones and an old crank calculator... but wait, what's that lever under his desk? This is my favorite feature. I didn't like the classic way to make the trapdoors work, with the stick to be removed and then manually put back. No, I wanted it to feel real, so I designed the mechanism in a way that opens the trapdoor when you push the lever forward, and automatically closes it when you pull it back. What do you think about? Please let me know Ok... now the moment you were all waiting for...what it would be the MoneyBin without the giant money pool with his 3 cubic acres of cash? Let me explain how it works: sure, you could open the vault hatch, but to access the money pool, we actually have to go to the back. The back wall can be removed (it's easy to pull thanks to four bricks that stick out). With the back wall removed, we can admire the money pool thanks to the 9 big transparent panels . We have the trampoline, the giant meter to measure the level of cash... and not a single coin. why? Maybe the Beagle Boys stole it all? No, it's empty because you are the one going to fill the MoneyBin. The MoneyBin is in fact a giant piggy bank, that you can fill through the apposite coin slot on the back of the roof. Once filled, this is the final result AND NOW THE IMPORTANT PART... Guys, this project is available on Lego Ideas at the following link --> https://ideas.lego.com/projects/a633c276-5b5b-40fe-badd-217263dc37a8? Probably you all know what Lego Ideas is, but in case you don't, here is how it works: 1) users (in this case me) upload their creations 2) other users vote them clicking the yellow button support (you need to have a Lego account, it's free to create one) 3) When a project reaches 10.000 supporters, Lego's experts will take it in exham to evaluate if produce it as an official Lego Set. Very simple. Thanks to all the ones who will help this project become real

    [MOC+WIP] Modular micro castle

    Hello! I'm opening a new topic. I'm slowly running out of ideas for my microcity. Now a new direction - is the modular micro castle. The base is still the same - 16x16 plate. Thanks for attention! I will be glad to receive your comments :) Fortress wall with a main gate, a rising bridge and a traditional moat :)
  22. Hi everyone I'm happy to share my second MOC which I have been working on over the last 5 months. I build the MOC with BrickLink Studio 2.0 and used the new Eyesight Render for my images. The MoMA - Museum of Modern Art is a MOC modular building inspired by modern architecture. The MOC has several highlights like a staircase fully made of glass bricks or a full-functional elevator on the backside. The MOC includes many of advanced building techniques and has a high level of details on each floor. It’s built on two standard 32 x 32 base plate and includes 18 minifigures, 28 paintings and 8 sculptures. The dimensions of building are 10.2x20.6x18.2 inches (width x length x height) or 26 x 52.3x46.2 cm. Level 1 - Entrance – Museum Store – Art Gallery The first floor contains the main entrance of the museum with a cash desk and a small design store for gifts and souvenir. The art gallery on the ground floor contains 6 paintings and 3 sculptures. Minifigures Older couple interested in modern art Museum employee operates the cash desk Store seller serves a customer Art-hipster buys a souvenir Security guard enjoying his coffee break Art Student looks at the sculpture Tourist interested in art Level 2 – Restroom – Art Gallery On the second floor there is a toilet for visitors and a gallery with a view into the ground floor. The art gallery on the second floor contains 11 paintings and 1 sculpture. Minifigures Artist looking for new inspiration Art interested friends couple Level 3 – Security Control Room – Art Gallery – Art Terrace On the third floor there is a security control room to monitor the valuable paintings and sculptures. A highlight in the art gallery in this floor is the large flower sculpture. A small outdoor area offers further space for abstract sculptures. The art gallery on the second floor contains 5 paintings and 3 sculptures. Minifigures Security guard what happens in the museum Father inspires his daughter for art Art lecturer during his lunch break Level 4 – Viewing platform – Art Café On the fourth floor there is a small Viewing platform on the top of the building. In the cozy art café, visitors can enjoy a piece of cake and coffee while enjoying the view through the large panorama window. Minifigures Barista conjures a work of art from every coffee. Visitor enjoys her coffee after an exciting museum visit Visitor treats herself to a cool drink and a slice of pizza Thanks very much for reading and I hope you like my second MOC. There are more pictures on Bricksafe and feel free to support my MOC on Rebrickable and let me know what you think about. At the moment I am building my MOC with real Lego bricks. As soon as possible I will post any photos of the real lego building.
  23. Following the events of The LEGO Movie 2, Emmet Brickowski got to work on building Lucy and himself their dreamhouse again. He made it a bit bigger, a little better, and a lot stronger... just in case of any future Duplo attacks. It also features an attic for extra storage space, on top of the already-new second story. It is a modular style building, with removable floors and connection pins. The furniture (and house colors) were partially inspired by set 70831: Emmet's Dream House/Rescue Rocket, and a few of the official modular buildings. The car was modeled after the 1957 Plymouth Fury, made famous by the Stephen King book "Christine". (It's also a 1983 horror movie of the same name.) I took the original model of the Christine car made by user @hachiroku, which I would link to but can't seem to find anymore... The rear of the house has the entry point to the Duplo Fallout shelter. Why a fallout shelter? Well, the house is from the late 1950's after all... plus, the Duplo creatures are bit rougher in their attitudes and might go about doing something drastic if they don't get their way. Upstairs is the only bedroom, which is plenty big enough for Lucy & Emmett with their respective pictures on the wall above the bed. (They are stickers, sadly) Downstairs is the living and dining rooms, plus the kitchen. It also has the connection pins to hook into the modular building standard. I don't have any real world pictures of the vehicle (yet), but it's been built in real life for some years now... I just have to photograph it. Instead, here are the screenshots I took of the model in 2017 below: The car was modeled after a certain red '57 Plymouth Fury. I made the car black instead of red and took off the parts which I thought would be unstable. This meant taking off the rear wheel covers, revising the front bumper, adding different wheels and a few other small things. The rear of the car features a very ingenious set of taillights. Kudos to Hachiroku for this simple, elegant design! I've already started parts finding for the house part of this project (and I've made quite a dent in the price), so keep your eyes peeled for more pictures coming soon! (Also, I know the parts are kind of dusty, they've been sitting on my desk a while.) As usual, thoughts, complaints, comments and questions always welcome!

    Your ideas for future city buildings

    Hello there, I´m about to expand the digital city and want you to have a part in the future planing. This is the current layout: The expansion will be on the right side, continuing the big long street. For this I need 2 new building right of the pub building. The first one will be build on a 16x32 baseplate. The second building will be a fire station. I´m not sure about the size of the fire station. Maybe I will be using 2 32x32 baseplates side by side. Now I need you for some Ideas. 1.: What do you want for the first (16x32) building? It should get the same height like the pub building. In the ground floor we can add another small store or public area. You can also tell me your favourite color which we can use for this building. 2.: Do you prefer a modern shaped fire station like one of this: Or an older one like this: I would be very happy if you write me your suggestions. If you have any other ideas for expanding the city you can also tell me. Thanks for your help
