Perhaps others with more layout experience may be able to provide more insights. My experience is with a winter village, so I'd just say use more white!
I was wondering this myself. I don't have any real city planning/building experience and have been buying stuff to build city for a while now. Hopefully, in a year or so, we'll be in a place that will have the space to do so. I always assumed base plates would be acquired later when I knew how much space I'd need. Now, not sure if I should focus on getting a bunch in the next few months or just wait it out. and see if they come up with another system like the road plates.
In other news, I'm feeling pretty good right now as I should soon have all the parts needed to fully ballast my tracks for my Winter Village layout. I think it will really help take the overall look to the next level.
On a related note, does anyone know of a way to order more than 200 of a single part type through BaP/[email protected]?
Things were getting very overcrowded and I will actually be able to face a long-overdue dusting of my mini City and everything else that is still on display and will also allow me to build a couple of sets in my backlog, such as Winnie The Pooh and, perhaps, the new Space Shuttle.
Dusting and hoovering first though! It was when I was disassembling both large sets that I realised how bad things had got. I think half the time was spent brushing the dust off everything!
Thankfully all the contents were there.
Overall, for a plastics company, I don't have a lot to complain about in terms of LEGO's environmental efforts. The fact they've even considered replacing their primary product material with a bio-friendly plant-based solution is admirable.
Maybe the focus ought to be on the industries taking advantage of low wages (and perhaps slave work camps?) in certain countries to produce phones and other devices. The same countries that won't make a commitment to reducing their pollutant trajectory, let alone actually reducing the destruction to the global environment...
I've been told for years that we all need to do our part. It's a global problem that requires a global solution.
Stepping down from soapbox!
Was very excited to find the Looney Tunes CMFs in Sainsbury's a few days ahead of release; 10 minutes of feeling later and the whole series came home with me!
It seemed to me that the Defender needed a driver, but minifig and Fabuland scale were way off... in the end I grabbed Woody off the shelf and used him...
In fact, I enjoyed it so much in college, I wrote a short story titled 'Fortinbras Politely Declined'. It was a terrible story.
I dislike these VIP GWPs.
Happy for you though.
Guildenstern: I don't believe it anyway.
Rosencrantz: Just a conspiracy of cartographers, then?”
I've been enjoying building the Hubble. Nice and shiny :) On the second bag of the Discovery now.
My own status is happy - in the end. I'll post more in the buying right now thread (which will also serve as the not buying right now thread in that instance).
Glad your stuff is on it's way. Fingers crossed everything is as expected.
Wile E x9, Road Runner x8, Bugs x6, Daffy x6, Tasmanian Devil x5, Marvin x4, Lola x4, Speedy x4, and only 1 each of Porky, Sylvester, Tweety and Petunia. Not sure how the store picked them but not really happy, I figured they would have but in a box plus the loose ones, but no, just piled them in the bag.
I might just head back down and grab another box on the weekend, what's an hour and a half round trip for Looney Tunes CMF.
