One Year On.

I thought I'd reflect on the last year in Brick Town (Est May 2007)...

Firstly - to Jamie. Huge thank you for opening up a new 'corner' of LEGO heaven. I have said before, I was ready to move on from my LEGO hobby... and then came Cafe Corner. Who could resist that?

Personally I feel I have learned (or learnt, depending on which dictionary you read) so much about the building process. I have not posted in a while because I've been up in the loft building, which is what I think its all about. The two buildings I have been working on were inspired by models featured on this site.

To Darren (my best LEGO friend - not those silly things at LEGOLAND - oh dear, stop digging a hole...) I met you because of this site and have enjoyed every minute of the time we have managed to spend together. The next project has to be a building! At my house (now I have windows!!!) - See

To Roger, poor Roger, who keeps the site going come rain or shine (not that it rains much in Portugal). Thanks mate - much appreciated.

To the people who post - Big Big Thank you and keep posting, we love to hear from you. I'm sure there'll be lots more to see inthe coming months.

Finally in my personal life - I suffered a breakdown in November. It was my third and I finally sought help this time (which has worked beyond my wildest dreams). I've never ever felt so good and I'm confident that it won't happen again (just thought I'd share that). Also, it has spurred me on to shed some weight. I topped 15 stone 1, and as I write this I'm 12 stone 7. So, if I haven't posted very much its because I've been in the gym... or in the loft of course.

Thank you all for a great year in Brick Town.

P.S. This made me smile (any guesses why?) - Lol. Brickstreet A.K.A Richard.

Indian Tastes and Chips

Now here's a good pair of restaurants to a modular city.

Made by Ralph Savelsberg (Mad physicist)

See more in his Flickr channel, because this builder is not all about Town MOC's.

Via The Brothers Brick.

Module II - Finally in bricks

I finally have my Module II with enough bricks to show off at Brick Town Talk.

One or two elements are still missing, but this is pretty much how it will look like when finished.
Now you know the drill leave comments and sugestions, looking foward to hear your feedback.
Also see the digital version I made before, not much has been changed.

Construction Site

By - JANico

This one really reminds me of the construction site I have built.

I found its a great place to have some fun creating a story. For example, like this MOC, the concrete is being poured and an unfotunate construction worker is being covered in it.

I particularly like the rat catcher, the crate of beer and the signs attched to the fence in this MOC.

Cretan monastery Arkadi

Cretan monastery Arkadi - by McBricker.

This MOC is obviously not CC Style, however, I have listed it because of the details above the doors and arches, and the way that round and eliptical windows have been achieved.
