well, i would have loved to show the toy shop completed, but, at least,
there is improvements over the last complete layout pics of before.
i m still lacking a lot of green plates, and of course, road plates,
i could nt find any around where i live.
it still needs a lot of polishing before it s complete.
i still need to install public stands over the centers, to check the race!
the park is where the green plates are missed most.
i feel i have enough trucks now, maybe some more cars would do nicely!
in the left bottom space should be sebastien s house.
i felt that the public parking was too small,
i solutioned it this morning.
you ll see in the late pics.
so was the construction site.
i fixed it too! [later pics]
fx and i need beach houses to build ours, yet,
they re nowhere to be found any place, any store!
amelie will get a 3 rd pink bucket of bricks,
her house should get more respectable.
the construction site s first design, too small!
manoxylo s house, almost finished,
she now wants to buy the new creator wood cabin
for the material she needs to build the roof.
renaude s farm, she should get her new creator family house for christmas today,
as she comes back from her father s place today!
we can see her last attempt at a new design here,
she never finished though,
mine will be next to the left, then fx s, will be even more to the left.
the small public parking.
you can note pine jim s stands near his truck,
there will be a market and a stage, with public stands.
note the race podium, as the winners will come here!
this pic translates my vision best,
but, there is still a lot of work to do!
the biggest challenge will no doubth be the bridge.
and mano would be interested in a harbour in her backyard,
to rent boats, and water sports.
i also consider a beach.
from this pic, we can see how in this new design,
i ll have trains in my backyard, i hope it won t look bad.
this being my journal,i felt compelled to show ALL trucks and cars,
as to show why i think i m 80% done.
i know that for a very nice town dio or story,
it would look better, if i would use much less of them.
i really like this pic, motocross bikes racing between train rails,
you can bet i ll use it in races!
ok now, this is the final track design,
i found this as the best solution to my problem,
2 trains could nt run on my tracks layout,
one had to leave at sunset...lol!
to be honest, i was nt exactly sure i would get both trains and complete layout,
therefore, i never really calculated as i should have,
i m glad i bought 2 cargo trains,
as they provided enough dividers to manage this,
i ll add green plates, to have a nice finish.
this should be the final size of the parking,
multilevel with elevator is considered in the far future.
the same apllies to the size of this,
except that, i have no clear vision on it in the future,
i want to store the equipment here, but, i d like it active also somehow.
i hope i ll get the material and toy shop soon,
as i m anxious to get to the stories with a more refined looks!
thank you for your support, friends!
merry christmas, and happy new year!
Quoting The Kodiak
the bridge is for aesthetics mostly, as it s a nice touch, but, water, seems a must, as there are a lot of things fun to do with it, and i admit, that the minifig collectionspieces inspired me for a beach! now, if i could only find palm trees! i d buy a lot!
Great! Pretty busy city that will look even better once you got the road plates.
I like it

It looks fantastic! All those buildings, cars, and minifigs make it look like a real city. Now only a load of base and road-plates and it looks even more awesome. I wonder how much you spent on all of this:P. If you have time could you check out my city update?http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/244750
love the new design plans, shame about the lego shortage, probably because your buying them all, anyway, maybe a small multi-storey carpark will do, shame you can't do underground, still, good progress.
WOW I'm speechless! It's great to see it all together It's coming along Beautifully :) I got all my road plates on Lego.com and my green baseplates in...well an Australian store I don't think you'll now about, anyway Good luck getting them! Can't wait to see it finished :D
