Modifying "Palace" sign on Palace Cinema

wildcatwildcat LouisianaMember Posts: 5

I am a new collector/builder of LEGO...specifically Winter Village and modular sets.

I have what may be an unusual question about "commissioning" building instructions. I have built the Palace Cinema, but, as we have a similar historic theatre in my town, I would love for the sign in the front to read "Strand" instead of "Palace."

Is there anyone here who would be willing to work out the instructions to do this? I know that I could maybe figure this out myself...eventually...but at what cost to my sanity? Again....I am VERY new to this hobby.

I am more than happy to pay for this service! Thanks to anyone who may be able to help or offer suggestions.

    It is worth having a look at this article on designing train decorations, as much of this requires a similar process.

    Take a look at the studs up and SNOT sections.

    In 5 mins on LDD I got this far...

    The N is the tricky one...

    Will get back to you if I solve that one; will also take a look a CCC's link.

    something like this?

    To get an N, you need to use SNOT, which leaves some room above and below the N. To circumvent this, you could model the entire logo using SNOT, but haven't got time to do so now...

    Yes!!!  Exactly like this!  Now, can y'all give me directions to do this myself?

    Y'all are awesome! And yes, I'm a Southerner :)
