These are the trains I've been looking for...
Has anyone got a printable copy of the front sail of this 6271 ship so I can cut one out of stiff paper?
CC became Bar Corner with a bar, wine fridge and a sign matching the Hotel sign. And the Hotel got a reception desk (I decided to build out backwards so the shape of this corner building became the same as the GE) and internal walls to create 3 bedrooms. I'm quite pleased with the end result.
Now I've got GG and MS on the go. Picked up 3 Beach Houses in the recent 3 for 2 sale at Tesco (which was already discounted £7 at my local store) so plenty of light blue bricks for MS. Had to make the first floor one brick taller to fit a 1x4x6 door frame, and the top floor got some more changes. But I think it'll fit in ok. The last few bricks for MS plus enought for the ground floor of GG should be delivered this week.
So as long as Santa brings PS and TH, my town should start to take shape :)
Been working last 3 days, so didn't build much. Have a brick calendar to open, but already have it built, it's just for parts and the figs, but maybe i'll build december out of it to get ahead of the game. Opened 2 copies each of Minoturus #3841, Heroica Nathuz #3859 & Draida #3857 but only built one small section of Nathuz (the skull cavern bit) because it was interesting but after 13 hours in an ambulance and getting called to come in 2 hours earlier for yesterday i didn't have energy for much more
and now 10 mins later i have a brick calendar ready to go for december and another S1 skater & cheerleader =-D
I was challenged by someone at AFOLCON to build a tour plane to go with my arena and have only just got round to doing it.
The interior is ready to go in, with a rehearsal space (with drums and amps!) in the mid section.
It'll upset the purists!
Gateway of the Squid was clearanced out for $12 (shipped) at Target at one point early this year. Great deal. I bought a pair.
In it was a few 40010 Santa with Sleigh and 40034 Christmas Train.
Knowing I wouldn't be happy with the basics I bought multiple and this is how they came out:
I limited my self to 4 Sleigh sets since I couldn't by 8 (limit 5), but realized I should have ordered the 5th and given it a red nose. I thought I might go Pick-a-brick and get 5 more reindeer but several pieces aren't available, and the pieces that were already totaled $15. Probably just cheaper to buy 5 more sets and have the extra parts. There's probably more tweaks to be had, I'd like to get ahold of a Santa minifig instead of the brick santa. And I probably want to rework the sleigh some more. Maybe for next year though.

Also just finished sorting a large bin for a friend. Came across complete sets #7237, #7248, #7899, #8654, #8672 & #8673.
Next up: I am still working on my LSU stadium....slowly :) and will prob start on #8160, #8161 or #10019. I have about 15-20 sets from BrickCon I still haven't gotten to. But I fly out on Wed to see my daughters FINALLY! I only get to see them twice a year :( so I try to spoil them rotten when I do. And YES, I have gotten the 12 & 8 year olds hooked into LEGO :) Tried on the 15 year old, but she is already into "teen" stuff and LEGO is childish she says lol. I will keep trying though :)
I'm sure you could imagine I am thrilled about the new baseball mold :)
Use white cheese slopes on their sides for home plate.
I just finished #5885 Triceratops Trapper I picked up on a BF sale. At less than 300 pcs., it only took about 25 min. to build. It's a nice set at $40, not so much at the $50 MSRP. If this set came out when I was a kid, it would have definitely been my favorite.
Apparently if you can't beat them, join them!
Build as much as you want!
Looks good either way.
Currently building the WV sets.
Well, strictly speaking, that's not true, but I'm on a budget and LEGO is expensive in China... and I want to travel, so...
This forum fills me with lots of jealousy :) Yet at the same time I live vicariously through you all...
