Town Plan on USA S@H

Hi all, Great News.

Aparently 10184 Town Plan is already on the USA Shop at Home, which means that in no time it will be on the european one too!

(hold it Roger you still have to buy that Cafe Corner... ;) )

Grand White Apartments

What can I say, nexus7 needs no presentation, he has been contributing with MOC's to the blog almost since its beginning.

Check out his new building in which he uses whites and grays to make a cool and realistic looking building.

Also see his other pictures of the MOC.

The rebelrock corner

As some of you may know, rebelrock is mostly known because of his jawdropping castle MOC's. However he isn't all about castle and he has built this corner building full of cool details.

And although rebelrock probably has lots of bricks, he mostly used pieces from the 4954 creator set.

So enjoy and check out his other MOC's.

Oh and he is also a member of Builders Lounge.

More buildings!

Hi, I hope you all had a happy Christmas and also a lot of LEGO. But Christmas was yesterday so we are back to the routine.

Finding CC style buildings in Brickshelf has become harder and harder these days, but luckly I found some buildings of a Builders Lounge member on Flickr.

So here it is, the street standard that we all love and a couple of gorgeous buildings. These were made by thebrickbin and you can see more on his Flickr folder.

Happy Holidays

Have a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year from Richard and Roger

We'd love to here what you get for Christmas - so be sure to leave a message... And Jamie - a huge thank you for starting all this off (any News gratefully received).

Ypsilanti Heritage Festival 2007

And another LEGO event on the AFOL world. This one shows an amazing and hyper-detailed city layout that has got a few buildings that would look really good side by side with the Cafe Corner.

I'm talking about the ones on the right of the picture.

Found these pictures in lar's gallery.

Svberckm's Block

Five buildings made by svberckm (that's a tough name to remember.) I particularly like the red and blue one those two colors work really great together. And also notice that the walls on this one are made out of plates, which gives it some more realism.

New Sets....

I didn't buy any, but I saw 5 new LEGO sets today. Pretty speedy for UK. This plane was in Woolworths in Luton, and I saw the two more expensive Indiana Jones sets, the police surveillance lorry and the new police station £50 in Luton Toys R Us. I didn't think to take a photograph of them - wish I had. can't remember the other prices - sorry.

A breathtaking yellow

Look at this! With a majority of yellow bricks matija was able to make this detailed and balanced building that uses some techniques that I didn't even know!

See more.

Great work matija!

Module IX - Italian Restaurant

Hi all!

A patch with more bricks was released for LDD so I've decided to try to use them on a CC style building, well at least some of them...

I've started with the idea of making a colorful building because one of the things people said about my other buildings was that they were to "grey"

So here it is, I'll call it the Italian Restaurant because it looks like some seen in mafia movies. It would also look good in the coast zone of a city.

Enjoy and comment because this is always a work in progress.

New Windows Finally!!!

The new windows can be seen clearly on the upper floor of the second picture.

All lit up...
