Old North Church instructions

mrbradfordmrbradford Fort Worth, Texas, USAMember Posts: 45
Does anyone have copy of the Old North Church mini-build instructions from last year's LEGO Americana Roadshow? Here is the only picture I have found of it online but it's too small to make out too well. https://pbs.twimg.com/media/B043cM5CYAAPLgC.jpg - thanks in advance for any assistance!

    A church from LEGO? I about fell off my chair!
  • mrbradfordmrbradford Fort Worth, Texas, USAMember Posts: 45
    Yes, one of a handful of official church models :) If your screenname is for Paul Revere, the Old North Church is famous for being used by him.

    I would like to build this church too (and @prevere 's response made me laugh. Sorry, you didn't hurt yourself, did you?)

    Caught myself just in time.

    However, I did unearth some additional images, including partial instructions from a completed eBay listing for this. I scraped Google, but can't find anything else on it.

    I found some other images - not as clear as what you found. A nice distraction this afternoon - I built a version with tan for some of the parts as I don't have some of the dark tan bricks. Fun.

    Very nice. Stupid question Lego. Why limit these nifty sets to obscure events like this? Why not at least offer a poly to, oh say, the tens of thousands of others with historical interest.

    So many familiar faces on this thread. :) Does anyone have a link to the instructions to the Supreme Court building from 3/14 to 3/15?
  • mrbradfordmrbradford Fort Worth, Texas, USAMember Posts: 45
    According to this ebay auction, no official instructions exist for the US Capitol (not supreme court) build from this year's monuments roadshow. Looks fairly easy to figure out what pieces are needed to build it though. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lego-US-Capitol-Building-Micro-Build-Parts-Instructions-Monuments-Roadshow-/151602111918?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item234c30a5ae

    There are some notes about a Lincoln Memorial as well, upcoming!  I'd like to see the Supreme Court instructions as well - if anyone has/finds them!  Thanks.

    We happened to be visiting SLC on the weekend of the build, and managed to see the show.  The models are pretty impressive, and I recommend going if the show comes close to your town.

    Here are the instructions for the supreme court.  Happy Building.

    We are still looking for the original Old North Church copy if anyone managed to get one.  Also, next month is the Lincoln Memorial in Lone Tree, Colorado, so hopefully there is a local Bricksetter there that can get a copy!

    @cmrt1014  Thanks. Maybe I'll take the kids but I hate going to that mall.

    @oldtodd33 - Did you end up going?  Instructions? Anyone?

    Thx.

    So, in Texas, the free build is a micro Statue of Liberty.  See image (this is the only size I've been able to find).  Any ideas what the pieces are to make the flame?  I think I see a cone, a 3L bar, and a round plate with the swirled top.  But what's in between?  or is it some other piece altogether?

    I bet it's hollow and not solid.

    The piece between the cone and the cupcake is a telescope.  Are you sure this is a legit picture though?  I tried a reverse image search and Google couldn't find where its posted (it thought is was a microscope, which was amusing).  The reason I ask is because the statue in the picture looks white, but the telescope has never been made in white.  It has been made in sand green, so I would be surprised if they picked white over sand green parts for the model.

    Fortunately the next tour stop is in Texas, and I've got friends there so I think we'll be able to get the official instructions scanned for this one.

    Jason,  thanks for the comments.  I had been thinking telescope as well (lbg, I think), but the donut- y shaped piece in the middle was throwing me off.  I found the image on the mall events page for the roadshow.  It seems to be in progress, as initially, it was the same as Colorado.

    Did you ever find the Lincoln memorial instructions?

    Jason,

     I saw the link for the Lincoln Memorial instructions on your website, but it's not linking to anything right now.

    Thank you so much for providing a site for this kind of information and instructions.  I never say that enough!
  • DadsAFOLDadsAFOL USAMember Posts: 617
    I need to upload it from my other computer, check back in a few hours.  They are recreated not original though.  I think that in later months of the tour, they will cycle back through the models so hopefully there will be another chance to get the originals.
  • jennb823jennb823 Member Posts: 6
    Could it be one of those "That Dress" issues where the statue looks white to some and light bluish grey to others? I found that BL's part http://img.bricklink.com/P/88/970c86.gif looked white and gold to me, but sadly was light bluish grey and reddish brown... Though I used it anyway! ;)

    Sorry, I guess the upload didn't work. I reduced the PDF size - it's still legible but not the best resolution, sorry!

  • cmrt1014cmrt1014 Member Posts: 396
    In Ohio, the make and take (July 11-12) will be ... The Washington Monument .


    Still searching  for the instructions/part list for the Jefferson Memorial.  Anyone?

    I was able to do the Jefferson Memorial Build. I can scan but my wife's computer is down and I can't scan to my chromebook though :(

    @dannyrww - Thank you so much!  May you please answer a question about the parts?  What color is "Jefferson" ? Light bluish gray?
  • dannyrwwdannyrww WisconsinMember Posts: 1,340
    light grey....same color for the flat one stud tile and the plate on the bottom.

    cmrt1014
  • cmrt1014cmrt1014 Member Posts: 396
    Thanks.  On the scanned instructions, there for a minute it looked sand green - which I couldn't imagine them doing, but...  Thanks again!
  • cmrt1014cmrt1014 Member Posts: 396
    Wait - the 6 x 6 plate on the bottom isn't white?  Is the 6 x 6 plate on top white? (That's what it looks like in the instructions.)
  • dannyrwwdannyrww WisconsinMember Posts: 1,340
    Sorry the plate on the bottom is white. The flat square (2 by 2) with the one stud on top is light grey. The statue and the  1 stud flat are also light grey. Everything else is white (well minus the green on the bottom).
    cmrt1014
  • dannyrwwdannyrww WisconsinMember Posts: 1,340
    The only ones that are light grey are the three in th far right column in the list of parts (hope that helps)
    cmrt1014
  • cmrt1014cmrt1014 Member Posts: 396
    Thanks.  That's what I thought I saw.  The white 6 x 6 round plate is a new color for that part.  I've had to substitute to build mine.  I'm watching for it to come out in another set.
  • dannyrwwdannyrww WisconsinMember Posts: 1,340
    Not the worst piece to sub out. I tried to build the capital and oddly I only have that dome piece for the top in light green
  • dannyrwwdannyrww WisconsinMember Posts: 1,340
    I'd love to build all of these as I am a history teacher...might have to brick link or buy from Lego

  • cmrt1014cmrt1014 Member Posts: 396
    I have been building them as they are announced - well, I didn't know about the Old North Church until @mrbradford started this thread.  They do look quite nice as a collection.  Easily identifiable, even at such a small scale.  Can't wait to see the remaining three.

    Did you know that @DadsAFOL is selling part sets of these on his website?  (No affiliation, except as a customer of his BL store,  and he doesn't pay me for the promotion!?!)
  • DadsAFOLDadsAFOL USAMember Posts: 617
    @dannyrww You can see which models we have at www.constructibles.net.   We also host all the instruction scans if you just want to build your own.
