I've finally finished another layout, and this time I went back to The Old West! From the great movie Blazing Saddles, I've recreated the 'whole' town of Rock Ridge. This scene is based on the three different town 'locations' in the movie: the actual town, the fake town built to fool the baddies, and the hollywood back lot. There are only four 'whole' buildings built - the sheriff's office/jail, the saloon/hotel, and the church - and each one has an interior to match the scenes in the movie (the green grocery store was also built 'whole', but just because it was situated in between the jail and saloon in the movie). The rest of the town buildings are all facades, complete with lumber supports on the backsides. The bad guys have their moment too! Some are just outside town in their camp, eating beans, while others are getting ready to ride in and wreak havoc. And of course, it wouldn't be a Mel Brooks movie without just a bit of fourth-wall breaking. I included most of the main cast, and scoured my minifigure collection for as much 1800's era-appropriate clothing as I could find. A few other cameos make an appearance, too. And there you have it! Total build time was about 2 1/2 months, stretched out over 9. ;) Check out the full gallery here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/pepa_quin/sets/72157691768033191/ Thanks for checking it out! -PQ
