  1. This model was inspired by set 10199 / 10249, Winter Village toy Shop. I originally built this as an open-back building in 2013, and scrapped it in 2015 for a larger, full-bodied station. I never did forget about this model, and rediscovered it while looking for my Hogsmeade station to go with my Hogwarts Express model I had designed. The model will be finished in real bricks very soon, and as such I have tweaked it again by adding stairs to the top floor where the station master's office is. The track side also features a space for eight printed 1 x 1 letter tiles to be placed to designate the station name along with plenty of passenger seating along the five-track-long platform. That's three tracks longer than the new Winter Village train station, and mine also features a rear wall and second story! Here is the street side of the station. This side includes an overhang that protects passengers entering the structure from the rain along with a wheelchair / luggage ramp access to the platform. The model features two modular lift-off levels and two split-away platform sections, along with some inside details. The lower floor features a fireplace, four chairs, and a desk for workers to hand out tickets. The top level features the station master's office, which is accessible via the staircase from the lower level. Here is the complete LDD file. I already have 95% of this model collected IRL, and I just need to order the last 500 parts early next month. Comments, Questions, and Complaints are always welcome! UPDATED 8/23/17: added new pictures and staircase to the model. LDD file also updated!
  2. Peace & War Square

    Hi to everybody, following the Hat Store (see https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/147923-hat-store/) I decided to expand the project into Peace & War Square. The square is named after the two statue placed besides the Arch: the war statue on the right and the peace statue on the left. It is composed of four main buildings: the Hat Store, The Gringotts Inn and the Fruit Loggia (from left to right) plus the Alice Arch and the Tower. Here follows some shots for each of the the buildings, except the Hat Store, see the related topic). First of all the Gringotts Pub Somebody on the roof.... The first floor. And the pub. The Fruit Loggia With a small Orchestra performing on the top! And finally Alice Arch (named after my second little daughter). Somebody is planning to sell it to some tourist? Some additional shots from the ground from a professional photographer perspective! Street cabaret! Last shots Frontal View Right View (War Statue) Left View (Peace Statue) Actually the project was interrupted four months ago due to worl reason (real work) and for new projects in my mind, so that some elements are still missing (in particularry on the right of the Loggia). Anyway; I would like to share the square as it is now. In the next future (I hope), once completed it will be placed in Rava Town (https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/145537-rava-town/In case, there is also a video. Hope you enjoy! Gabriele
  3. 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. MOC - Modular Hardware Store

    For a while I thought not of posting any new designs online, but then I thought I enjoy designing Lego projects so.......... To save time here I will just copy and paste from my Ideas page so I will now say my usual Brick On ! Lucky number three perhaps, well say hello to my latest creation. A single storey farm hardware store with an exterior based on designs from the Edwardian era (early 20th century) or better know in Australia as the Federation era. The colours of the walls, the curved windows the exterior trim on the front of the building all point towards that era. There is a lot of brick and Technic built fixtures and merchandise in this set idea with two minifigs, the store manager and a customer visiting the big city from the country. Brick built display counters feature various pieces of merchandise and behind the counter is a bookcase where catalogues, order books and account ledgers are housed. All the tools on offer hang on wall racks, there are boxes of fencing materials and a barrel of heavy chain, plus under the counter galv wire coils for sale also. The part count would be between 500 and 600 pieces, a cost price of around 100 dollars US. I usually have a brand name for any of my designs, but this time none so please feel free to suggest a name for this particular company. This design is only 16 stud wide so it can sit between the detective's office and assembly square modulars to keep the spacing between street light poles the same Lego Ideas link - Modular Hardware Store
  5. (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
  6. [MOC] Amsterdam Canal Houses

    Hi everyone, it took me a while, but here it is: the third and final part of my Amsterdam project. There are now two more canal houses and two canal boats next to the already existing Book Store and Cheese Shop. The narrow dark red and white building contains a music store on four floors that sells records and a great selection of modern and classic musical instruments. The corner building provides space for three different businesses: a flower shop on the ground floor, a therapist on the first floor and a tailor shop on the two remaining floors. The two houseboats are also inhabited and fully furnished. [ For more photos and detailed views of the interior please take a look at the flickr album. I hope you like it.
  7. Hello there! Sharing you my latest MOC. It's the replicate of the 100 years old heritage house in Malaysia. Cheers! https://flic.kr/s/aHsm4ZH8wG
  8. MOC: Pop Up Restaurant

    MOC: Pop Up Restaurant I had a vacant city block in my run down Lego town and I decided that a temporary restaurant would fit in the space nicely. And because I can resist a bad pun I thought that a good theme for a pop up restaurant would be one shaped like a toaster. So here's my Restaurant MOC. I hope you enjoy it! Criticism, ridicule and comments most welcome!
  9. [ MOC ] Mail Box at V City

    Finally! This is the Mail Box! I took quite some time off from my last creation, and now I finally realized what was in my hand for quite some months. This yellow building is my latest modern architecture creation, and clearly, it is the place where you post your letters and get other mailing services, the post office! Many people would use up most of the inches for a corner building design, but I want to reclaim the space for the people. How about a negative building? I decided to remove the walls along the pavement, and create a nice, welcoming semi-outdoor space. Then the building will start to "climb" onto the remaining walls, as if they are inserted into the planes. I used grey for the horizontal box indicating that this is the public area. You can do your mailing at the counter or get help. You can also buy postcards and other mail products. The above is the black box, which is the office, the staff-only place. You can post your letters outside. Note the local and air mailboxes! The blue one is stamp vending machine. Buy, stick and post! On the other side of the yellow wall is the loading bay, and you can see things are just scattered around, with parcels pending delivery...the other side is the lift shaft, with a workable lift! The mail car parks here, and ready to be loaded and go! The first floor is the office where the postmen sort the letters. Looks like they need to have OT today... The second floor is where the manager sits. You can also find special delivery section here. They are brainstorming about how to deliver these silver bricks. Who is that artist? He is the designer for the post products, like the first-day-of-issue! The computer? For the drones! Yes, the drones! With these little robots, speed delivery will be really...speedy. No need to wait for any man or car to send your urgent letters! Hope you enjoy this! Now start posting!
  10. Cars for Modular Round 2

    Modulars are the big player in the category of "AFOL" aimed sets and we all have seen probably several displays online/on conventions. It has always bothered me how TLG doesnt really include more cars to that line or a car based buidling (garage etc). Its either that City is the series for that (to save some expanses) or that they dont really agree on a scale there (one must admit, the Cinema limousine is fairly poor designed and doenst match the City line designwise). Perhaps they just know we will find our own solutions ;) Therefore i ventured out last year to analyse and calculate sizes of certain elements, such as windows, doors and their standard measures (also comparing world wide) - since those are the only standards we have regarding the "modular scale", fixed elements. Everything else can vary (height, length etc), as it does irl. Thats why its not easy to say which scale we are actually getting here...which would in return be necessary to "agree" on a car scale I brainstormed it all into this old thread, which led me to 1/42 scale. ...and i've been updating the scale and ideas since, currently arriving to a 1/43 scale (the difference is quite huge in this micro scaling!) Now i know this is certainly not the usual approach and we will never know the "true scale" of modulars, leaving quite a lot of scale options possible. Also the following builds are rather "scale models" than "minifig cars" - but perhaps this is to somebodies liking here, so i just post the second run of vehicles for the fun of it. One of the main things i really like of working in this scale is the "puzzeling" of parts in several directions in SNOT, just like the modulars have it done in their detail areas. The other thing is that the size of vehicles lets the Modulars appear a lot bigger then when city scale/ Speed Champion is being used. So this car in its design principle is quite modularish, but if it blends in well i leave for you to decide ;) Nuff talk, pics: Modular context, sundown by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr scale universe 1:43 by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Pickup by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr ambulance US by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Sports SUV by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Vintage Racing Porsche by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr VW T1 redesigns by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr Car collection by Ron Dayes, auf Flickr
  11. Hey Everyone, Let me introduce you my latest MOC: An oldtimer car transporter! This transporter has the same, classic design that you can see on my earlier classic roadsters and cars. The vehicle you see on the truck is also one of these (my MOC). The driver has to jump out of the cabin, remove the two ramps that slides out smoothly (normally hidden inside the truck), then he can reverse and ready to go with the roadster! Enjoy!:) Lego tow truck by szász, on Flickr Lego tow truck by szász, on Flickr Lego tow truck by szász, on Flickr Lego tow truck by szász, on Flickr Lego tow truck by szász, on Flickr Lego tow truck by szász, on Flickr Lego tow truck by szász, on Flickr Lego tow truck by szász, on Flickr DSC08814 by szász, on Flickr If you are interested in more: a link to my previous MOC oltimer post: http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=94764&hl= http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=93337&hl= http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=91343&hl=
  12. Hello everyone, even the biggest basement room's space is limited - more limited than what I'd like for all the houses I want to build, so I'm building some as facades only. And I don't need that many bricks. :) Here's the first facade for this wall, the long-established brick dealer Noppe & Co.: (Note that "Noppe" is also the common German word for a Lego stud.) They primarily sell what we know as 1x2 bricks, also in variations: The shop window currently displays sand-blue grille bricks, fancy glitter bricks and cheap remaining stock. Office on the second floor, apartment above. I only built those interior parts that are visible through the windows: At its final place - with space for several more facades: (I should add some decorations to the sidewalk on this traffic-calmed paved one-way road...)
  13. Cupcake Cafe Modular Moc

    So I've always loved the Front facade and colors of Friends 41119. I wanted to work up a modular that maintained a front facing patio, but kept the back accessible, and added a staircase to the top floor. I haven't decided if I want to add the "Green Cross Medical Dispensary" up on the second story, or maybe just a party deck, and flip the staircase down into the patio.
  14. This model was recreated in LDD by Eurobricks user @Stephan, which I then took and recolored in my red and gray color-scheme. I also added the opening cockpit from my older rocket model along along with new tail-fins and two less rocket stages. The two astronaut figures and one robot are also included in the LDD file! NOTE: Some parts would not fit on the rocket according to Stephan due to tolerance issues in LDD, and are left to the side in the file. They are hidden in the pictures, but they are there, so be alert when building in real life. You have been warned! Fictional background info for the rocket: This ship is the forerunner for all of the other Lego space ships: in 1970, this crucial piece of history launched from LegoLand Space Port for a mission to the moon. This was very soon after the failed 1965 launch of 801 series Space Rocket, which killed the the brave crew of Kat Aclysm: female rocket science genius and designer of the experimental ship, and Abraham "Abe" Normal, the best test pilot in the academy. Their deaths at the Samsonite launch pad were not in vain though, as the newly founded LegoLand Aero-Space Authority (renamed Classic Space Command in 1978) rebuilt their reputation as the premier brick-built space agency by launching the "Innovator", also known as LL001 which in early August 1969 made history as the first mini figure - built object on the moon! This rocket and it's crew (Bill Fold, Penny Wise, and S1L-V3R the robot) made history with their two days on the moon's surface, providing the foundations for the Classic Space Moon-base series of missions. The model still separates into sections, but the top most one of these has been replaced, thus reducing the segments to three. The rear of the rocket features five engines, the middle section a smaller bank of five thrusters, while the cockpit section has one singular engine. The cockpit still opens, and as usual should feature this print. The rocket features enlarged tail-fins inspired by 1950's / 60's science fiction. The fins SHOULD be able to take the weight of the rocket when standing vertical, but I'm not 100% sure, so build at your own risk. You have been warned! The height of the Saturn V dwarfs the smaller rocket of the previous design. (The older model is NOT in the LDD file!) The robot is inspired by the robot customer in the 2007 set number 4981 (a Spongebob set called The Chum Bucket), while the astronauts were inspired by the Sandy Cheeks mini-figure in set 3831 (Rocket Ride). The astronauts should have this print on their torsos. Here is the LDD file for the modified Saturn V, which also includes the two bubble - helmeted astronauts and the robot. The model is 100% build able in real life, and should be built by me around Christmas this year. Comments, questions and complaints are always welcome! EDITED 8/8/17: added new pictures and updated ldd file!
  15. The AFOL Brick House

    BREAKING NEWS! LEGO TO GO INTO THE REAL ESTATE MARKET The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr The world-famous Danish Company known for its toys and highly sophisticated interlockable brick systems took the plunge into the real estate market with a new type of prefabricated house targeted to AFOLs (acronym for ‘adult fan of LEGO’). The standard model in red, is three-storey connected by elegant stairs, features wooden floors, large windows across the whole rear of the house, a amazing Wurlitzer Jukebox, and even a glass display sitting in between the ground and 1st floor hosting a UCS Millenium Falcon in it (included in the price). The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Now on the layout of the various floors: The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Ground floor will have a Brick Room, where you can sort your bricks, a work bench with a brick separator, a personal computer and some cupboards to store your parts. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr First floor will have a lovely living room with crystal displays, to showcase your favourite sets and custom creations to AFOL friends while listening music playing in the Jukebox. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Second floor will have a big table to host a city diorama (included in each house, but you can customize to your liking) and practise before taking your stuff to events. A manhole will also lead you to the attic to blow the cobwebs away and, who knows, sport a new IDEAS creation! This whole house will be just 1590 pieces including furniture! The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr You may ask yourselves: ‘No bathroom? A bed? Kitchen?’ Nothing to worry about, a hardcore AFOL doesn’t need any of these and even so there will be some other modular building next to this one where you would seek help. As we said, the model will be of 1590 pieces. Just because you can’t split it like conventional modular buildings, it will have hinges to open the rear all in one piece. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr All floor can be pulled out to ease playability and to make changes to the layout. This innovative modular building fits to any other existing LEGO products, and gives a touch of color to your city theme. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr Just try now to visualize it the real word, or your city. Would it be awesome, don’t you think? How colourful any city would be, or more beautiful? I would personally buy it, if only LEGO would produce it. Who ever dream of a place where you could express your passion for bricks to the best? For now, it’s only possible to vote for this project, who knows where the future leads.. My first proposition of the model is red, a real classic color for LEGO. The AFOL Brick House by Cristiano Grassi, su Flickr On a unrelated side note, the story behind my nickname. ‘VedoSoloLEGO’ means ‘I see only LEGOs’ in Italian, my native language. Reason behind that is anything i look at I try to picture it in brick shape. I hope you enjoy it. Technical notes: The model has been created with Mecabriks and rendered via Blender. Special thanks to gabriele.zannotti for the wonderful pictures and support; without his help, it wouldnt even be possible to show you this project with thee lovely hires pics. If you would like to keep in touch with the project you can subscribe to my Ideas profile, including my other projects, or on Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, Mocpages, by looking for my username ‘VedoSoloLEGO’.

  16. 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: Nathan Sawaya's Oscar statue from the 2015 Academy Awards.

  17. [MOC] Bikes Shop Modular

    I am introducing my first Lego modular building - "Bikes Shop". The main concept was: how to find a good relationship between classical and modern architecture. So I designed this modular with glazed elevator. The lift shaft separate this modular to 2 different builindgs, but both of them contains "ILIO" hostel Ground floor contain also a Bikes Shop with round signboard which we can bring eleator up or down. Elevator working by technic bricks (only manual, not engine). We can take minifigs by the working elevator from reception (ground floor) up to the first floor. more pictures
  18. 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.
  19. Dear Eurobrickers, With 4DBrix we have always tried to keep an open communication with the AFOL community. (Although I have to admit that for the last few months, due to our kickstarter campaign, I didn’t have enough time to do this as much as I would have liked). I really enjoy the conversions on this forum and appreciate your feedback and input which has had a significant impact on what we do. Unfortunately, I have to revise the ‘openness’ on that level. A few months ago we introduced the concept of ‘modular track switches’ we developed for LEGO PF train track. It was brought to my attention that our concept has already been copied… in a rather shameless way, they didn’t even bother the find another name and also use the term ‘modular’. Developing a concept like the ‘modular track switch’ system takes a significant amount of time and effort, however, copying the final concept only takes a fraction of that. We have no problem with fair competition but stealing ideas straight out of kickstarter/forums is a serious issue for innovation… We have been working on other concepts to extend the track selection for LEGO trains and would have liked to discus them with you. Unfortunately, we’re no longer able to do that unless we’re willing to risk that our ideas are being stolen before we can even release the product. We have to evaluate what the implications of this are long term. But for now, I truly regret we can no longer have these open, public discussions. You’re however very welcome to contact me directly at info@4dbrix.com. As usual, all your feedback is welcome...
  20. This hotel was inspired partially by the B model in set 31069 and partially by a prototype 1920's theme LEGO tested sometime in the 1990's, as seen below: (not my pic, seen here first.) My version of the building is modular with four levels, with two rooms, a lobby level, and the roof / tower that lift away. The neon sign out front is double-sided, and can be read from either left or right sides. The rear and front of building features a ton of windows, while the left and right sides feature none, due to this model being placed in close proximity with other buildings. The "L" shape of this building gives it a unique feel, in my opinion. The lower floor currently features a desk with cash register, piano,dining room table and several seats. The second floor features a room with two beds, desk with lamp, table, chairs, and a record player. Third floor also features the same stuff as the second floor. NOTE: Here's the of the LDD file whole model. As usual, comments, questions and complaints always welcome! EDIT: added more accurate furniture, and updated LDD file. This model is now DONE!
  21. Originally built in Sand Red by my father in the early 2000's, this building is one of my dad's biggest creations. I modified it and brought it up to my specifications... okay, I whinged it from looking at the model. I took some liberties, (& made some mistakes) with the original model. For example: the first version had a smaller smokestack, (diameter wise) and had a different Railroad loading dock. (His dock was made from the '90's 16 x 16 old dark grey sections, with two slopes and 4 middle sections.) plus I used parts not available in Sand Red. He did this factory without using Brick-link.... just a ton of Sand Red parts packs ordered via the phone from LEGO. I have redone the model in easier-to-buy red, with white window frames. The tracks side. This end of the factory has a ladder to the top of the smokestack. Their is also a small water tower on top of the roof as well. The factory was originally built in sand red, not regular red. Since this color is extremely expensive and hard to find, I used regular red with modern white window frames. Inside view, with the detachable roof removed. Dad never finished this part, and probably never will. The loading doors do open, and were modified from the original arched doors as they couldn't fit a forklift... then again, these doors might not either! I hoped this factory would be of some use for some people, as the original always has been gathering dust in the basement since it was built, as seen below: This is the original factory that was by my Dad around the years 2000 - 2004. it was built with parts from several Sand Red supplemental packs available at that time. It does not feature any interior, nor does it have a removable roof. But this thing is built STRONG: you have to really put your weight on it to press the roof together. It has never been determined what this factory made in-universe, though for my own purposes in my younger years, I pretended it made beverages. What beverages, you ask? Why, Dr. Leg O. Brick's Root Beer of course! My factory produces automobiles, and they are loaded onto three-level auto racks for transport around the country or around the globe. This three level auto rack was originally found on LGauge .com as seen here. I redesigned that model and added tiny automobiles to fit into the racks. There is but a single plate worth of clearance between the automobiles and the rack above. The automobiles are attached using 2 x 3 plates, put they are removable... if you take the roof of the freight car off first! These tiny cars can seat a single figure each, and have two opening doors per car. The vehicles come in three color varieties, (red, white ,yellow) though a fourth (blue) is possible but is sightly more expensive. Comments, questions, and complaints are always welcome, and if anyone wants the LDD file for my red version, here it is. The tri-level auto racks and the cars on them is ready to download at this link. EDIT 7/24/17: Recolored the smokestack to dark bluish gray and extended it's height. I also enlarged the water tower and have a more realistic appearance... LDD file updated! EDIT 7/26/17: Added auto racks and the loads on them to this page, along with it's accompanying LDD file. ENJOY!
  22. This modular model was inspired by sets 70409 (Shipwreck Defense) and 70411 (Treasure Island) for this small pirate port, with a raft that was mostly taken from set 6240. (Kraken Atttackin') The model also features a crane from a Pirates of the Caribbean combination model called Port Royal, and a dual cannon turret inside a giant swiveling stone skull. (That dual cannon part was inspired by WWII-inspired movie "the Guns of Navarone") The whole model comes apart into three sections: - loading crane - makeshift dock - defense turret The crane can spin around all 360 degrees. This part of the make-shift dock can take "battle damage": the curved section under the cannon falls back a bit, as shown here. The inside of the skull-shaped cannon turret features two guns and a telescope. This part forms most of the skull. This Ninjago part goes on top of the mast as the flag for my pirate's faction. The raft features a sail inspired by Spongebob set 3817, (Flying Dutchman) and a body inspired by set 6240. (Kraken Atttackin') The LDD file for the port ONLY is here. If you are curious what ship calls Skull Island home, please see here for the topic (and LDD file!) on the three-masted frigate "The Terror". The port should be purchased around Christmas of this year! Comments, Questions, and complaints are always welcome!
  23. [MOC] Microscale Brick Store

    It was my entry on LEGO Rebrick's Micro Modular Madness contest. This house includes a LEGO Brand Store with product booth, cash desk, shelves and a Pick-a-Brick wall (custom stickers, could have better quality). At upper floors, there is a flat with a large balcony. The floors are easily detachable, just like in the large modular house sets, because hey, this tiny creation is a mini modular building! Althought I didn't win anything at the contest, I've really enjoyed the making of this tiny model; it is my very first microscale building. A minifigure-scale version is in process. I'm happy to read your thoughts. :)
  24. Inspired by the modular Fire brigade Fire engine and modification to the Palace Cinema Limousine, I have gotten another idea to build a simple vehicle for the Parisian Restaurant modular theme. Sharing my 6 studs wide build - 1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible (First Generation).

  25. MOC: Toontown Modulars

    MOC: Toontown Modulars I belong to Kansas City BrickLab and as part of our Who Framed Roger Rabbit display at Brickworld I contributed a couple of modulars. I wanted to build a series of cartoon-ey buildings for the Toontown area of the build. So, these are all sloping, non-parallel buildings that used Technic pins and bricks to hold the facade on at 'interesting' angles. I hope you like them. This one was based on a heavily modded Palace Theatre (that had already been morphed into a Discount Carpet warehouse http://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/96512-mod-palace-carpets-for-all-your-flooring-needs/) And finally here's an image of Roger in the Kitchen If you'd like to see more images of the entire display then please head on over to https://www.flickr.com/groups/kcbricklab/pool/ More of my stuff and nonsense on https://www.flickr.com/photos/eurotrash48903/ Comments, criticism and ridicule most welcome!
