Brickstow City

Post by JackBrick »

Hi everyone! I am kickin' it off with the most recent update that showed the full city of Brickstow, you could say the "1.0" version.

In october 2019 we have created a bigger surface to start with a 2.0 version. Unfortunately the heavy climate change rains in Holland made my old house start to leak water. Because of this, and because I am planning towards reconstructing parts of the house, I had to remove the 2.0 table surface. :roll: Future updates, at least up until the reconstruction is finished, will therefore show a smaller "1.5" version which me and the guys Dom and Kev will mostly use to try out some things of our backlog. :mrgreen:

For now, enjoy the september 2019 update video!

That's a great city! But some tough luck with the leakage :cry: I went from 1 big table to 2 separate cities because I couldn't reach big parts of the table and it was always a bit messy. I only started on the second one last week but will post some pictures in a few days.
Sarcasm is my oxygen :mrgreen:

Thanks, and thanks! :D Yeah it is kind of a hassle when rain comes in your house, especially so close to your LEGO. Have it controlled now though. Looking forward to seeing your city (or cities!) appear in the topic list! Really curious about it. I recognize the issue with having too large surfaces to maintain! I see a lot of people designing holes in the middle so you can crawl there, but the thought of just having two seperate cities is actually pretty smart too! I can imagine it gives you the opportunity to go somewhere completely different in style et cetera, which gives you new possibilities.

Looking forward to some 1.5 updates! Hopefully you get the house back in shape, even better than before, without too much hassle.

I have decided to do the first 1.5 video next weekend, aiming for a video release on sathurday 10:00! Not only because of 1.5, but mostly because we did not get around to make such an update video for two months already! :mrgreen:
