How to 1LDU

e1m1e1m1 germanyMember Posts: 3
Hey, I am currently building a Diorama of Shadow Moses Island (Metal Gear Solid)

Now I am a little stuck.
For the Heliport I built a frame an I want to insert bricks that lay on their side, because I don't find another way to build a thin H sign. When I insert this Module into the heliportframe then I have the problem that the heliportframe is 1 LDU higher than my Module. Does anyone of you have a solution how I can reach 1 LDU so that the frame and the module have the same height, without compromising to much height of my diorama?

I could use 2*6 plates instead of 1*6 plates, but then I have to build the whole diorama a few LDUs heigher.

    When I do this, instead of inserting into panels like that, I would build the whole "floor" on its side, using SNOT bricks to attach the red parts to the H section.

    Is it possible to do the "module" with SNOT bricks?, 'cause if I am using 99780 or 99781 there still be an offset.

    can I edit my posts?
    I think i found the solution for my initial problem, I'll take the green or pink solution until I get it solved with an SNOT-solution.

    I'm talking about using only 1 x n bricks and 1 x n plates on their side. And using 1 x 1 bricks with studs on the side will allow you to attach plates at 90 degrees.

    So the whole base would be built on its side, just like the new #40333 GWP.
