Modular Building Guide

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.

Thanks for the inspiration Redhead1982!

Modular Conversion Review: 41101 Heartlake Grand Hotel

Your first thought may be, why a modular conversion, as this building is most of the way there already, right?  Ditch the elevator and make the floors a bit wider and there you have it.  That would be too simple.

And it was.  Read why here

Winter Cafe Sub Models Instructions

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.

Blue Shores

The Blue Shores is the second of the new buildings included in The Promenade layout for BrickWorld.   While the layout overall was inspired by New York architecture, the Sand Blue and White in this building reminds me of the sea.  Hence the name – Blue Shores.

Cast Iron Modular

The Cast Iron Modular was one of the eight buildings included in The Promenade, and one of the two whole new ones.  As the name suggests, the Cast Iron Modular was inspired by the cast iron buildings of New York.

Unlike most of my modulars, this one is not furnished.  I am really happy with how it turned out, but I struggled to think of what it should be.  It’s a shop, but I’m not sure what it should sell.  And after building it four times already, I’m ready to move on, so this one will stay unfurnished!

Modular Conversion Review: 71016 Kwik-E-mart

The thing that immediately caught my attention when the high resolution images of the KwiK-E-mart (71016) were first released was the amount of interior detailing and the printed parts.  In this respect, it doesn’t disappoint in real life!

But how does it stack up as modular or a parts pack? Read the full review here!

From benchtop to bedside

“Bedside and Benchtop” is another name for “translational” biology, or the approach of adapting knowledge of experiments in the lab to assist patients in the clinic.  You can now incorporate this into your own MOC with the instructions for RedCoKid’s Bedside and Benchtop.
