LEGO shared details of the next modular building this week – the Downtown Diner, scheduled for release on 1 January 2018.
If you’re curious what LEGO says about it’s latest modular building, scroll to the bottom.
My view? I must admit that my first reaction was one of disappointment. It is a nice building, but I couldn’t picture it fitting in with a traditional modular street. The street view released by LEGO re-inforces this in my opinion.
You can’t go past Palixa and the Bricks‘ latest modular building, the Cheese Shop and Bistro, to get your fill of cheesy goodness. It is a fully furnished, three story (+ roof) modular building featuring a cheese shop, cheese making facility and one bedroom apartment.
I love the interior of this modular building, especially the back counter, the mezzanine level above the shop counter and the furnishings in the apartment. The lounge chairs are just exquisite!
RedHead1982 from BrickHamster has completed her awsome 7-part guide to building modular buildings, culminating in three beautiful modular buildings.
Head over to BrickHamster to see the full guide on how these modular buildings were made, covering everything from the placement of the technic bricks to the trims on the roof, as well as the interiors.
With Bob’s Burgers, the restaurant from the sitcom with the same name, it’s easy to see why I look forward to new creations from Eurotrash (Chris Goddard). I love what Chris has done the upper part of this building, especially the clever use of the 1×2 slopes with slots and the tiling on the roof.
On the back, there’s some neat details and clever SNOT to frame the backdoor.
I’m looking forward to seeing an interior for this one! For now, though, there are a couple more angles of the exterior on Flickr.
With a bar, perfumery, ice cream parlour and clothes store, this modular building by BrickShelf user Pikey1984 has a something for everyone. If you can get past the elephants guarding the front entrance!
The rear boasts a beautiful outdoor seating area, complete with ‘rock’ filled planters.
In addition to the elephants guarding the front entrance, Pikey1984 has hidden two more elephants in plain sight. Head over to BrickShelf to find them.
Someone recently asked me how the ski rack for the Winter Cafe was built, so I thought I would take the opportunity to do the instructions for the remaining sub-models (having done the hand cart already).
You can download the instructions for the ski rack, bench table and lamp post here. You can also find the instructions for the hand cart there as well – just scroll to the bottom of the page.
