The guys at the bandshell at this years "Our Lady Help of Christians" on my block loved this MOC version of theirs! They even suggested using the speaker to prop it up! Updated: I went to the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel on July 16th and took plenty of pics this is one! No Italian Feast would be compleat without MUSIC. On my block when the feast is here on the opposite corner there is a small bandshell it holds up to 6 people. Mainly the DJ takes over! Some feasts have modernized and use piped in music from a DJ, but some have live music. Now that the speakers arrived and the DJ got his tape player we will hear the music louder! Tghe new flags came and the men who put foundations came so the stage was raised! I still get goose bumps when I hear Tutti Ferrer's O giglio da Paridiso! the Lily of Heaven!
Note my take on the collectible mini-figures series 4 guys!
Also note Cyberfrank I am showing the Bandshell in its environment - THE FEAST!
About this creation
For one year I will honor, remember and respect the victims of 9-11. Each of my creations will have a 9-11 memorial starting off the page. I'd like to give a big handshake, hug, kiss to all the people here on MOCpages that remembered by creating WORLD TRADE CENTER buildings done in LEGO you too honor the fallen of 9-11 GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!

Chris isn't the best at wording things, but he's right. I think you're ready for a big project, whether it is one large building or many smaller ones in a diorama, you could do something great.
Trust me Cody I'd love to!
Some things are holding me back:
1.) Money I already spent a fortune! I am a retired on disability NYC Public School Teacher so I live on Social Security and Teacher's Retirement System Disability. Before I go big I need to buy and construct several LEGO MODULAR Buildings so I can get a feel for it! They start at $149.99 USD too expensive for me NOW! Then the cost of the bricks!
2.) The space to show them or keep them around for a while!
I more then appreciate yours and Chris' wonderful comments!
If I win the lottery beware there will be no stopping me!
Nice work man. Alright, we know you can do these cute little vigs. Now, like in that clothing store post, I think it's time to start putting them together maybe? You did a bit here with the carts and what not, but I think you are holding back a bit. I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens when you let it all out... wait, that sounded wrong... ~ Chris.
