    Assembling Bricksburg

    edited to put all final images in the first post... After seeing the LEGO movie, I wanted to re-create buildings from Emmet's neighborhood. While researching, I realized a great deal of what was in the movie was based on previously-existing sets. I thought it would be interesting to do a project that compared the original LEGO sets to the modified movie versions. Knowing how much time, money, and physical space it would take to build these out of real bricks, I decided to try my hand at LEGO Digital Designer (LDD). After having created a couple of the buildings in LDD, I ran across the post for Bluerender and used it to generate photo-real renderings. Here are my results: .lxf file: http://www.brickshel...logo_final_.lxf The latest image posts: End Title Concept End credits: Movie Theater End credits: WyldStyle's tag End credits: Music End credits: Movie premiere End credits: Kragle End credits: Taco Tuesday End credits: Secret Police LEGO Movie 2 logo The latest WIP of Emmet's Mech (with BlackStar): .lxf file: http://www.brickshelf.com/gallery/Xon67/Movie/movie_emmetsmech_2017-07-20.lxf Emmet's apartment Emmet's apartment interior How Emmet fits a 50-stud-wide apartment into a 30-stud-wide building: A variation on Emmet's apartment (green with a slanted roof) Pet Store (right) Pet Store (left) Plumber Joe's apartment .lxf file: http://www.brickshel...the_plumber.lxf Condemned building Fresh Fruit market Sherrie Scratchen-Post's apartment Emmet's street Emmet's street in micro scale Fire Brigade .lxf file: http://www.brickshel...ire_brigade.lxf Fire Brigade Tower (updated) Filling Station Garage Street Corner Rooftop garden 1 Rooftop garden 2 An example of the reuse of building parts Warehouse 1 Warehouse 2 (Fire Brigade) Mega Green Grocer Bricksburg Castle Bricksburg Castle back Cafe Corner / hotel with clock tower Fish (market?/restaurant?)

  2. MOC of a residential area (heavily inspired by a real street in the city of Aarhus, Denmark). At a later point, lights will be installed in all houses. Furthermore, the street will be broadened by 8 studs, so that the finer details of each house can be better appreciated by the spectator when the model is on display.

    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!
  4. Hey guys, I decided to create this topic and the main idea came from this and this post (so special thanks to @danth and @Digger of Bricks!). I would like to highlight three things before I start to post inspirational MOCs: I’ll post three staff picks everyday! Please feel free to post your favorite MOCs! Have fun admiring and taking inspiration from those great MOCs Top three MOC’s IMO in Baroque architecture: 1. This incredible Baroque Church by @Jellyeater! 2. This amazingly detailed MOC by @pj_bosman! 3. This greatly shaped modular by @cimddwc! Here are the three best Baroque MOC’s IMO! What do you think about them? Would you buy modulars like those if TLG made? Here are the Steampunk ones: 1. This incredible layout made together by @castor-troy and @domino39 (they also made one MOD of the PR and the MS and two MOD’s of the CC included in this layout. But they look so different that they are more MOC then MOD). EB topic here and Flickr albums with more photos here, here, here and here. 2. These great Steampunk modulars by @adde51! 3. These very interesting modulars by @Zilmrud who as well made great MOD’s of the PC and the BB! Here are the three most gorgeous Steampunk MOC’s IMO! What do you think of them? Would you buy modulars like those if TLG ever made?
  5. 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. If you want to see more pics then head over to my Flickr page where I've added loads more. https://www.flickr.com/photos/140122416@N02/albums

    Tips for MOCing a Modular?

    Okay, so I've got an old 16x32 baseplate lying around, and I am eyeing up the Assembly Square as a potential future purchase. But, of course, Assembly Square is 48 studs wide and won't properly fit into a layout that consists of standard 32x32s in a grid. There'd be a big gap. I don't much like that. So, I am giving serious thought to throwing together some spare parts and making an effort at building a MOC 16-wide Modular Building. My current plan is to see what I can do with the parts I already have, then once I have a working design, Bricklink (or some other method of ordering parts) whatever I need. But since this is my first time designing a major building, I know there are people with a lot more experience than I at things like this. So I want to know what sort of advice people can give a noob like me?

    [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.

    [MOC] BRICK SQUARE POST OFFICE

    Hi everyone I'd like to present my latest MOC, and the follow up to my previous Modular, "The Queen Bricktoria Pub". This time I've designed another British style building, a Post Office, set some time during the late 1950's. There is much more to it than just a Post Office though. Read on to find out more... As you can see this modular building has 3 floors and is built on a 32 x 32 base plate. I have designed it to appear as 2 separate buildings situated around a small town square. The post office is intended to be the main focus of the model but the building on the right also contains a fish & chip shop and other businesses. The Minifigures I've included 6 minifigs with this MOC. From left to right they are: Post Office Worker, Post Office Manager, The Postman, Chip Shop Owner, Cafe Barista and a Business man. Brick Square and Ground Level Details Both the buildings are arranged around "Brick Square". I've included a small flowering tree in the centre of the square and outside the post office there is a pillar box, bench, rubbish bin and flower pots. Outside the fish and chip shop is a table with parasol. The Pillar box is a simple build made up from 2x2 round bricks, plates and tiles, stacked up and held together with a technic axle running through the middle. The shaped slot section towards the top is made from a red wheel flipped on its side. Sandwiched between both buildings is a shared stairwell which can be accessed from the street. This is how the minifigs access the upper floors. The Post Office The pictures below show the interior of the post office. Mail Sorting Office On the floor above the post office is the room where all the mail gets sorted, ready to be sent out. This room is accessed via the stair well outside the post office. Fish & Chip Shop Another iconic British building - a fish and Chip Shop. The shop sells chips, battered fish, burgers, sausages and drinks. Coffee Shop Above the Fish & Ship Shop is a little cafe with a coffee machine, cake stand, table and seat. In the corner of the cafe is a stair case leading up to the top floor. Office Above the cafe is an office used by a local businessman. I've included a desk with drawers, telephone and paperwork. There is also a grandfather clock and plant pots. Mail Van I have also included a vehicle with this MOC, a vintage style Mail van. The Finished Model Here is a shot of the Brick Square Post Office, alongside my other modulars, The Queen Bricktoria and Convenience Store. If you'd like to read more about these other MOCs then follow the links below. Convenience Store Queen Bricktoria Thanks very much for reading. If you'd like to see more pictures of the Brick Square Post Office then head across to my Flickr page, I've added over 60 pictures of it there. I hope you like my latest MOC, feel free to leave comments and let me know what you think.

    [MOC] Prater Ferris Wheel

    Hi all,We're back again to show you another old MOC, the Prater Ferris Wheel.The ferris wheel is built on the mechanism of the #4957 LEGO set and the style is that of the Prater in Wien, while the café and the park are invented.The work consists of about 8000 LEGO bricks (80 minifigures included). You can notice plenty of details, including people taking a selfie, fallen leaves, frightened people escaping from the park, jogging guys, pretty girls, elegant couples waiting for their high-class wagon, men at work, plants, bike raks and so on. Here are some photos; you can find more on our Flickr profile. Thanks for visiting! FBros

    [MOC] Athletics Track

    Hello everyone! :) This is a project begun in 2016, freely inspired by an athletics track in the north of Italy. It's populated by friends and people - some of them are ordinary, others are so odd - that used to train or work there. As now, the MOC is in a minifig scale. The track combines bricks in different orientations and some techniques (e.g. the numbers before the finish line) to make it detailed and realistic as much as possible. It's also modular to make it easy to transport and, above all, easy to continue. The current version consists of about 3700 bricks, but we're already designing the curved section. We hope this MOC can interest you and, in case you like it, keep updated following us on Flickr! FBros
  13. Here is my XL turntable, which has 11 dead-end stall tracks and one outlet track. (though it can be reconfigured to be as many or as few tracks as needed). It is spread out over a 64 x 64 XL make-shift base plate size made up of of 4 regular (32 x 32) curved road plates with quite a bit of overhang due to the outlet tracks and tower. The re-purposed signal tower is now being used to control the turn table. This control building is modular, and has a roof and second floor that come off to reveal inside details. The studs on the sides of the building are supposed to spell out the the yard's name, but I haven't decided on a good name yet. If you have any suggestions for a name with 10 letters or less, please post a comment with it below! This table can handle a 4-track long engine (around 64 studs) with a bit of overhang at the ends, such as with my Frisco 1522 4-8-2 steam locomotive as seen above. Diesel A + B unit sets would have to be separated and moved independently, but that's okay and actually accurate for some real world locations / railroads. The basic workhorse of the turntable is this four track long framework you see here. The table's modular control tower features a lower floor that's empty except for the staircase. The upper floor features a machine to control the turn table, a wall clock, and a old-fashioned rotary telephone. The table easily glides on an raised outer ring of tiles, and turns on a central 2 x 2 pivot point. This whole thing can be mechanized, much more easily than a transfer table, but it still needs fine tuning to make it work right. The outer ring of tracks is only attached to the base plates at two certain points: every other spot is held on by gravity. (plates on tiles) This is basically a very much enlarged version of this model here. I was working on a seven-stall shed in the same style as the tower to connect to the turntable, but the angles and hinge bricks weren't working out due in LDD. I guess it will have to wait until the turn table is built in real life.... if it is ever built in the real world. Comments, questions, suggestions, and complaints are always welcome, as usual and thanks for stopping by!

Nowadays, we're working on the adjacent square, with the goal to complete it in a few years. We will be posting updates very soon. As for the MOC itself, we chose a 1:75 scale, so that it could be populated with minifigs, without being too huge and expensive. The Cathedral consists of about 9600 bricks. Some techniques were inspired by others' works, while some were developed for the purpose of maintaining the most possible similarity to the real Cathedral. Hope you will enjoy! Every suggestion is welcome! FBros

    Alf's Stars 'N' Stripes Grill - redesign

    An update of my first ever MOC from couple of years ago. I decided it didn't quite fit into my layout, and as I've learned lots of new techniques since then, I decided to rebuild it. It's an American themed takeaway / grill. FIRST FLOOR: Alf's Stars N Stripes Grill - grill, rotisserie, fridge, Fanta drinks machine, seating, recycling bin. Also a door out to the back alley where there's a freezer, and also stairs up to the second floor W/C. SECOND FLOOR: Design Studio reception / W/C - A second business takes up the second and third floors: a funky and modern design studio. This is just a reception / waiting area. THIRD FLOOR: Design Studio main office - Two designers' desks, shelves with supplies, etc. Hope you enjoy. Please feel free to leave me a comment if you have any questions or comments!

    [MOC] Gallery of Modern Art

    Hello everyone, something a little bit different for a change, especially architecturally: A modern, artistic building that grows from the ruins of an old one... topped with an over-the-top golden sculpture. An overview of the pieces of art found in the gallery. A few notes: Top row: The bee is from a Unikitty set, as well as the piggy next to it that didn't make it into the gallery after all. The ugly dark red figure is a Bionicle "minifigure", the ice sculpture from a City advent calendar. Second row: The orange thing is mostly from a Moana set, the blue disc from the Dimensions game. Third row: That silver thing is a Ninjago spinner thing. A brick separator was kinda mandatory. :) The gold sculpture is from an old reverse-engineering contest, and the white thing from Nexo Knights. Bottom row: Left is a plate from the German footballers CMF. The floors: (Detail images on Flickr.) » Flickr album with more photos Hope you like it...
  19. I would like to present to you my biggest modular so far - the Ministry of Brick: This one is from recent exhibition in Pszczyna, Poland: And another one from "the studio": I started working on it about 2 years ago. I wanted to build something in the socialist realism style. Since you don't get much of this style represented in LEGO, and I am a Warsaw citizen where you can find quite a number of examples from it, something had to be done :) The inspiration was the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development that is located on Wspólna street. You can have a look at the pictures here. I started with visiting this place often to get an idea of what I can incorporate into the build and what needs to be changed or done from scratch. It took half a year of thinking how to place the first brick so that I wouldn't have to take it apart in the middle of work. When thinking about it I also posed myself a few challenges and goals: - The building had to me monochromatic (tan only), but at the same time the building had to be interesting - to be achieved by texture and detailing only. I allowed myself for different coloured windows - black in the arcades and white in the rest of the building. - The minifigs had to be able to access all rooms (this is true for all my modulars). - I wanted to include something that moves or at least some lights. I managed to do both. On one side of the building there is an elevator, mechanical. You need to turn the crank at the end of a 32 - long axle, on which a worm gear is sliding taking the elevator with it. The worm gear uses gear racks to climb up and down. The arcades have lights delivered by the lamps (I used points of 5 light from PF lights), in the space room there is one light powering the side generator (for the lack of a better word ;) ) and one going from the top straight to the reactor. The last one is pointed towards the colonnade. - Yet another assumption was that since this is the Ministry of Brick, each room had to be dedicated to a different LEGO Theme. Right next to the building there is a small Brick Square with a accompanying Statue of Brick :P During the photo session (that my friend Jetboy helped me greatly with) I realized that I forgot to produce a sticker for the red sign. At the end I decided to use some chromed plates in that space since a sticker would be in Polish and plates are international :) And I intend to visit Skaerbaek with that build (if they accept it), so maybe this is better idea. OK, so here we go, first with the red, unstickered sign... And with chromed plated (again from the exhibition) And the facade: Now, I would to give you a tip how to build in the room where a two-year old is playing. Have a look at the black poles (is it a proper name in English?). Apart from the obvious (protecting minifigs from cars) their other important function was to take the beating from my son and protect the building this way (he would stop there :) ). He used to pick them up everyday, put them in his cars, loose and find them. Once when he lost them for good, I ordered another bunch from BL. I found them the moment I payed for a new lot... Anyway, allowing the children to open and close the doors hundreds times a day helped to protect the rest of the build too and most of all, having it in the open space for several months finally made them accustomed to it so it wasn't that important to tear it apart anymore. Yes, my lovely wife is a monument of patience. And here are the lights that I was able to capture best in one of the late WIPs: Now, lets have a look at all of the modules together: At the base we have the Brick Square with statue: At the ground floor there are arcades with the cloakroom (City style), on one side Castle room, on the other the Simpsons: On the Simpsons side, there is the office and a public toilet: There is also an elevator shaft: Arcades with the cloakroom can be best seen in the overall ground floor picture, here is the other side: Castle means a throne room and the king. If someone needs to have something done here, one needs to know who's really in charge :) Above the arcades there is the Power Functions lights sections. It contains 3 sets of lights. 5 out of 6 light points are used to light up the arcades. Here is a view of the lamps: The remaining light points is used to power the generator in space room on the first floor: The UFO man is there as well :) Going back to PF section - here is how it looks: As you can see, the right most bigger cog wheel is an ON/OFF switch. We have also the Pirates on the first floor. They used all the budget they could for the interior :) Above the arcades there is a patio for the restaurant run by the monsters from the Monster Fighters and other halloween creatures (but everyone is welcome to come in :) ): And here is the restaurant: On the other side there is Western department: This table can be opened on a hinge so that I can install a PF cable with light coming from the top and lightening the reactor in space room below. Not very convenient, but aesthetics took priority :) Above the restaurant the Lord of the Rings department is located. They have there the right place for Bilbo's book :) And lastly above the Western room there is the "engine room" for the elevator: It is run by the Santa's elves, but not only them. It is Technic after all! This is also the place to turn the second set of lights on. This is the only room (apart from the roof) where a minifig can't enter. The elevator doesn't reach this floor, there are no stairs. But the elves have their ways and maxi fig can climb up :) The roof is socialist realism style as well, of course :) The whole gallery is here: CLICK! I hope you like it :)

  21. This is my newest modular building. I started building right after I finished the Mage's Mansion. As with that build, I did not plan ahead in LDD but just started building with the pieces from my collection. Since I parted out a lot of sets in the past few years, this felt like the natural thing to do. I ended up doing one (rather large) Bricklink order solely for tiles, 1 by x plates and a few bricks, since I was running out of those soon. I had always wanted to do a 24-wide modular. I remembered that I still had at least two of the old 24 x 16 baseplates with my childhood Lego, and wanted to use those. So I got them out, cleaned them...and thought, hang on, these feel pretty small. Did some counting, and yep, they aren't 24 x 16 baseplates, they are 20 x 14s! Whoops . I used them anyway, so this building occupies the rather unusual footprint of 20 x 28 studs. Less space then I had planned with (I had a basic idea for the general layout of this building), but I took it as a challenge... Since I did no digital planning, I have no idea how many pieces I used, I'd estimate that there are about 2500 pieces in here, but I could be way off. As usual, more pictures are available on flickr. This time, it's a lot more This building features two businesses and two apartments. The idea is that this used to be two very small buildings that at one point in time were combined into one. The little girl just bought her plutonium ice-cream. The girl's dad also got an icecream, but when he saw the new mountain bike on display at Mike's Bikes, he forgot all about it... Closer look at the facade detail on the sand-blue portion of the building. This involved building in multiple directions - most of it is upside down! The rooftop terrace on the blue portion of the building is accessible via a working sliding glass door, and features a pool for these hot summer days! Closer look at the roof of Mike's Bikes. Mike's Bikes is a pretty small shop, thus it is very cluttered with barely any room to move around. Still, Mike manages and has a lot of fun at his job! The Ice Cream parlour is even smaller than Mike's Bikes. It doesn't offer any seating, so everything is 'to go'! The apartment on the first floor features kitchen and bedroom areas and a living room with a cozy sofa. While her girlfriend relaxes on the rooftop terrace (as we saw earlier), the other occupant of the second apartment is preparing dinner. Looks like it's time for chicken! The bathroom is rather spacious, featuring a large tub. The topmost floor features a small bar area - together with the small swimming pool this is THE place for parties! Since these are always popular, here's the bird's eye shots of all the floors (click for larger versions!): Overview - Ground Floor by Tobias T., auf Flickr Overview - First Floor by Tobias T., auf Flickr Overview - Second Floor by Tobias T., auf Flickr Overview - Third floor by Tobias T., auf Flickr To finish this up, here it is together with some other modulars Again, more pics are available on flickr.

    [MOC] Art Nouveau Modular Corner Building

    My fifth modular building had to be a corner one, and the style I strongly wanted to replicated was Art Nouveau. My first attempt, a sand red building with quite monotonous details, featured some of the typical elements of Art Nouveau, but it didn't convince me at all, so I came up with this design. I also wanted to use a new colour palette and, inspired by Gaudi's brickworks, I made a sort of "pastel mosaic" on the facade. In addition, I wanted to use gold with black, which is a fairly common combination in architecture. The ground floor is a minerals shop (whose owner is a secret alchemist who finally found the ultimate formula to convert all metals into gold- which he actually sells ), while the first floor is an architecture studio with glass skylights in a copper frame. Hope you like it!

    Vienna "Pseudomodular" (WIP)

    Shortly after finalising my latest project (Modular Brick School on Eurobricks) I had the idea to - instead of once again creating a classic modular - try something different by recreating a street scene from my hometown Vienna in a "modular package", i.e. on a 32x32 baseplate with modular-style buildings. First drafts were quickly drawn but due to being a father of two small kids with an interest in a fair amount of other stuff (travel, photography ...) the project soon got abandoned. Fast-forward (nearly three years later - OMG) to mid of July 2018. Seriously bad summer weather in Austria and a lack of interest to head out someplace else forced us to bunker in and that's when I rediscovered my old drafts and resumed working on them - this time using Bricklink's Studio application. The WIP now consists of two buildings - one inspired by the still prevalent medieval buildings in Vienna, the other one in a more recent "neo-classicistic" / "Gründerzeit" style from the mid 1900s. At the very center there is a small park / fountain (which I basically took directly from 40221 Fountain). Not perfectly happy with that yet (as it does not really "connect" to Vienna), and hence will probably be replaced in future renditions. Also, both buildings are basically empty, so interior is yet to be done as well. I will continue to work on it over the course of the coming weeks and see where I will finally end up with ;) Hope you like it and feedback is very, very welcome! /hermez
  24. OK, at this point, a small series of sets covering the Ancient World is essentially inevitable... All the molds have already been made, and it is just a matter of time now... So here is an ambitious new attempt to make a series of sets through Cuusoo. I designed a series of 8 of them, ranging all the way from $30 to $300, including different sets for Greece, Rome, the Lighthouse of Alexandria, Stonehenge, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, and the Nexus of Bifrost. Please have a look, I'd love to hear everyone's feedback, and then you can come to vote on all of them for free at LEGO Cuusoo! And I will incorporate everyone's suggestions as soon as I can! Thanks Again! =D therealindy (Archaeology, Ancient, History, Greece, Greek, Rome, Roman, Alexandria, Egypt, Celtic, Stonehenge, Garden, Babylon, Viking, Bifrost, Wonders of the World)
  25. Hi everyone, I recently built my first modular MOC and I'd like to present it here as well... With as many as 50000 residents on a footprint of just 126 x 213 meters, Hong Kong's Kowloon Walled City once was the most densely populated settlement in the world. While this model depicts only four of its levels, the actual building complex reached a height of up to 14 stories as new structures were frequently built on top of older ones. Streets were overbuilt, turning into corridors full of water pipes and exposed electrical wiring. The city housed numerous low-cost production facilities such as small workshops and food factories. Living space was scarce inside the labyrinth-like city, but residents could enjoy fresh air and sunlight on the rooftops. The complex of intertwined buildings was finally demolished in the early nineties, but its unique construction style and dense urban aesthetic have served as an inspiration for a number of fictional settings, possibly even for Lego's Ninjago City set with its stacked architecture. The model features advertising signs as well as a grocery store at the outer face of the city, a noodle factory, a metal workshop, one of the dark alleyways at ground level, a fish gutter's shop, a stairwell, two very cramped apartments, caged balconies, a weaving and sewing shop, a dentist's office, a light well obstructed by lattices and clothes, a cookshop, a dough sheet bakery, and rooftops packed with TV antennas. Details include a carrying pole, neon tubes, a noodle machine, a fan, food items, beds, a hearth, clothes lines, a loom, and a sewing machine. This has 2385 pieces, by the way. Well, I'm a big fan of the modulars Lego has released so far, but they all look colorful and clean and sort of European/American. I decided to submit this on Lego Ideas (there's also some pictures of the interior) because I'd love it if a more densely built, dark, "ugly" or even cyberpunk-y model were released for once (though of course Ninjago City already went in the right direction). What do you think?
