    @JooTog  Am so envious of all of you that have the space for train tracks!  Have fun!  I certainly enjoy seeing others posts!

    If by "space" you mean "the floor in the living+dining room", then yes, there's space for a decent layout ;-)

    just finished #21013 "baby" Big Ben,
    nice little build.
    looks great.
    this is the 1st of the Architecture theme that i owned/built.
    (...) 

    i going to try to limit the number of set i get from this theme.

    No need to limit yourself. Small Big Ben was my first architecture set as well. Since then I built about 12 and every new one is better (or different) than previous ones. And because they are relatively small you can always put them back in the box if space is a limit. 
  • JooTogJooTog Southern CaliforniaMember Posts: 941
    @chrisalddin I second @dutchlegofan50 on this one. They are all different, include some interesting build, and they all look great.

    I started with #21023 Flatiron Building and was going to limit this theme. Got #21013 Big Ben shortly after and suddenly I had more than 5 sets (14 now).

    Because they are small and the "serious" tone of the theme, I have them on display in my office at work... OK, I recently added a Mickey CMF to give it an Epcot Center feel ;-)

    I just opened #21014 Villa Savoye and starting sorting the pieces; I tend to build these sets at the office during small breaks, so it will take a few days to complete it.

    I only own Eiffel Tower, and despite it's simplicity think it's fantastic.

    Agree 100%!

    I think the picture doesn't do it justice. I was hesitant to get it, but when I did and put it together, it became my favorite of the "towers". Looks awesome in the center of the display with the other buildings around it :-)

    I'm waiting for a London skyline and maybe a Paris skyline. I was quite annoyed I missed Willis Tower - I lived in Chicago one summer...

    Actually, my youngest daughter is building one, and my youngest son is "helping" me with the other. I'll let you guess which is which...

    I can't see the right side but on the left with that blue piece up against the stairs you would have the appearance of water running underneath at least to me.  Nice!

    The summer Elves sets are an August release in North America. Same with Nexo Knights and Ninjago, which Europe also got this month.

    That is the intent: water under the bridge :-) But there are two small bag where the quarter-circle and rectangular plates meets. Might add a couple of green flowers to cover them. Here's a view from the top:
    Also realized that if this is placed on a green baseplate, as to include it in a "modular" garden" (been trying to work on that for a while now), the bottom quarter-circle green plates are not needed.

    ^ What I'd suggest is either increasing the water height under the bridge to two plates, that way it can overlap the fountain water, or replacing the 3x3 curved plate with other plates.

    Sold out at [email protected] for a long time.  Hard to get anywhere apart from Germany/Austria area.

    Waiting for the second fountain being shipped from [email protected] There is always a chance that the box will be crushed/damage, so why open one of the perfect ones I have at home ;-)

    It should arrive on Friday, so I will post a picture soon after.

    The "modular" garden is a different story. I am still working on it in LDD; every time I go back to it I take two steps back with new ideas; the latest being the fountain. This probably won't see the light of day until year's end.
  • JooTogJooTog Southern CaliforniaMember Posts: 941
    @kiki180703 requested the LDD file for the double-fountain, so here it is in case anybody else is interested:

    Please, notice that the file includes two other configurations I was playing with; the one in the center corresponds to the pictures I shared before.

    Enjoy!

    #6950 Rocket Launcher from 1982, a bargain from eBay and just as awesome as I remember as a kid! 

    A couple small parts have been replaced with different pieces so I'll be putting a Bricklink order in to get the correct parts.

    Built the Black knight mech. It's huge! It's pretty nice. I know it's not all black but it would be pretty bland for a Lego set if it were. Some great new pieces! Plus the minifigures are great.

    Absolutely, some of the pieces are slightly yellowing but overall for a 34 year old set its in great condition. God, I feel old! 
  • JooTogJooTog Southern CaliforniaMember Posts: 941
    Well, the double-fountain takes way too much space in the modular garden I had in mind :-(

    I will keep the fountain in it's original design and finish working on my modular on LDD. Maybe something else will come to mind as I work on it.

    Wait! Double-decker-fountain! It'll have cup holders... ;-)

    I presume you're talking about the Black knight mech? No unfortunately it doesn't.  Not sure why this design decision was made - probably stability. The main body torso of the mech is VERY heavy. It's difficult to pose in a number of positions because of this. 

    It was a fun build and fun to play with despite some flaws.

    We just built the mixer. This was a set I was pretty sure I was going to pass, had a negative reaction to the set initially, but decided I would go with an amusement park theme and include this.  

    I have to say I am glad we bought it. My kids  had a blast putting it together, and I am really liking the mixer action. The small games are fun as well. I am definitely glad we did not pass it up. 

    I love the fountains next to each other. I may try to implement something similar for an area in the amusement park.

    haha, thanks. It was actually an in-joke x-mas present a few years back. But even so, I have no problem reppin' ABBA.

    I actually thought about taking the picture some place else rather than the top of the piano, but then I thought ... "I wonder how many people will actually notice ABBA's picture in the background!". At least one person did! =)

    The [email protected] parts for my expanded #60050 Train Station arrived today. Here's the final model with all the correct colors.


    Also extended #7937 Train Station bridge to also accommodate two trains and enlarged the second second platform a bit. Could not find all the parts to add a third light on the overpass, so improvised with some "floor-level" lights. Thought I had spare yellow grills... used white until I get my hands on some. Also added a couple of seats, but they do not match the original blue on the main platform.

    #21302 The Big Bang Theory. Been in my queue for a few days, people who came over today are fans of the show, so I got it together in time to show them.
    Great but not perfect set, as a fan of both the show and LEGO. About to write a more detailed review for the main site.
    I was tempted to put another minfigure in Sheldon's spot. ;)
    This is the first time in awhile I've actually built a set rather than broken it down for BrickLink inventory. Feels weird, but also feels good to be back. I happened to start by connecting Bernadette's torso and legs.

    Drinking away the thumb pain? Just don't spill anything on the pieces, and stay sober enough to build right. :)
    When handling such things, I keep my hands and work surface clean and dry, and place any beverages on a lower surface.
    Food and drink or not, finishing a bag often makes for a good break point.
