As I don't have enough space to display all the normal modular buildings, I was happy to get the mini modular version (10230). Unfortunatelly 10230 never was continued... So I've build the mini modular versions published by Oscar (o0ger) the last years. Since Downtown Diner 10260 was released, no buildable mini version MOC appeared. I found a few rendered pictures, but they use part/color combinations that are not available, illegal LDD build techniques or wrong proportions.... So I learned a lot of SNOT techniques at Oscars MOCs and build my own mini modular DD. Here is the final result: 8x8 base plate. Fully buildable with 395 parts. No illegal connections. Many many SNOT and offset techniques. Use of regular available parts. No rare, high priced pieces. Lego PAB is approx. 35-40€. Stability of all parts was checked positive. Height fits the Lego mini modulars. I've tried to contain as much details and proportions as possible into the mini version. There are some modifications regarding the usual mini modulars "rules": # At the backside there is an offset of 1/2 stud at the first floor relating to the base plate dimension. # The friction pins are cut in half and the right side friction pin area has some gaps because of the ground floor offset. With removing the technic bricks and pin you can completely close these gaps using a 1x3 teal brick and jumper plate. And I had to use a single colour option at the outer side of the roof. There is a 1x4x1 1/3 teal brick as Lego doesn't offer any suitable 1x1 rounded part to build a white/teal edge as on the inside roof. In favor of the front view I decided using these option. Maybe there might be a better solution with new parts in the future. https://bricksafe.com/files/shell.shock/moc-downtown-diner-mini-modular/MOC_DD_Teal_off.lxf Attention: LDD file is missing one 36840 piece, as it's not available in LDD. So this one is not included in the BOM! Also LDD still uses old element/design ID numbers such like the 1x1x2/3 roof tiles or trans clear parts. Newer parts are available and much more cost-effective. Please check brickset parts database.
Huaojozu posted a topic in LEGO TownInstructions available here. I'm sure I'm not the only who on one hand appreciated the different direction Lego took with the DD design, but on the other hand found it hard to incorporate seemlessly into an existing town layout, since the architectural style is so distinct. So I set out to rebuild the set in a style more resembling the other modulars. And the result is the Internet Café Corner Modular. I almost gave up halfway through when I realized there wasn't enough bricks to build all the side walls I wanted, but in the end I managed to scrape together enough pieces to build everything I set out to. The first floor contains a couple computers to use for internet access and a small café with free Wi-Fi. The second floor has some living space and the rooftop a small garden.
