The tallest building in my neighborhood, The clock tower was added to break up the skyline and the depth of the buildings. It’s actually two buildings in one – A clock tower built over the street and a corner building with a Meat Shop, Izakaya and Art Gallery space.
One of the oldest and largest buildings in my town, the half-timber framed “Toy Shop” building began as one of my first attempts at a Modular MOC (It began life as a modified 10193) . In the last two years, the building has undergone at least 3 expansions and one recent major face lift to the facade.
Even though I had a lot of LEGO in the 80s and 90s, I had never seen Fabuland until just a year ago.. At first, I was uninterested in them, turning all my focus to Modular buildings and city-related themes. Recently though, I have fallen hard for the little creatures, and am enjoying the challenge of putting buildings together for them that maintain their wacky vintage aesthetic, while still satisfying my need for good looking structures and modern building techniques. The end result of my first dabblings with Fabuland is… Fabu-Land! a self-contained city block where all the residents do their part and live peacefully (in very close quarters, apparently!).
My 2013 Lego Christmas display. It’s obviously made of 10229 Winter Village cottage and 10235 Winter Village Market, but it also includes a handful of 2013 winter Polybags, promos, a custom snowy landscape and a backdrop of MOC Building Facades. LED light kits by Evan Designs.
Palace Cinema was the first Modular building that came out after I came out of my dark ages, and so of course I had to have it on day one! After seeing how the odd roof lines matched up with my existing Modular Town however, some renovations were in order. The interior was kept stock.
The Modular building that got me out of my dark age was 10218 – Pet shop. So when I got 10197 – Fire Brigade right after, the dark red and gray building loomed over the tiny apartments. It wasn’t long before I converted it into a 16-stud wide alternate build that was more at home in my residential neighborhood (sorry firefighters!).
