Day #3620Title: Tiny Toyshop
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I put together this little Toys ‘R’ Us the other day, it came in kit form. But I wanted to sit it on a baseplate with roads and pavements which means it will clip together with my other Micropolis models, so I added a bit of landscaping and a car park while I was at it.

Day #3619Title: The Miniature Fleet
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Back to LEGO again today, and I built some little spaceships for my Microscale Moonbase. The buildings have been planned but not yet implemented in reality.

Day #3616Title: Petite Patisserie
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 45mm f2.8 Leica DG Macro-Elmarit ASPH
Notes: A new little Microscale building kit arrived today. It’s a patisserie with some apartments above. Outside looks like a lovely place to sit and enjoy some tasty pastries!

Day #3612Title: 3D Sketch – Modernism
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I had a noodle around with my LEGO Architecture Studio set today – the idea is to use it as a toolkit for making 3D sketches and prototypes of things I want to build properly in coloured LEGO. Being all white, it rather focuses the mind on shape and form, a bit like making a monochrome photograph. I will probably use this design for a Micropolis module soon, but I need to decide the colour scheme and get the proper bricks sorted out – the Studio set is to be kept together and not robbed of pieces here and there, or I will never keep track of what I need to replace!

Day #3599Title: Welcome To NE:ON Mall
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: I have recently discovered the Micropolis standard for building modular Microscale cities in LEGO, which will all clip together. Having had a look around for inspirational pictures, I have decided that this is what I will concentrate on with my MOCs from now on. Today I made my very first module, from stuff which had just arrived from eBay. It’s a bit lairy in colour scheme, but I quite like it anyway! Clearly the bloke who owns the Mall is a very brash individual.

Day #3597Title: St. Bridget’s Cathedral
Location: At home
Camera: Panasonic Lumix GX8 / Panasonic 12-35mm f/2.8 Lumix G X Vario ASPH Power OIS
Notes: Today I thought I would try my had at a LEGO MOC – My Own Creation. Although I’ve build commercial sets aplenty, it’s the first time that I’ve had a go at building my own idea from scratch in over 30 years! I wanted to use the bits I had to build something in Microscale (one storey of a building is about 1 brick + 1 plate high). I ended up with this modern monstrosity, which I have nicknamed St. Bridget’s Cathedral. She’s apparently the Patron Saint of Failure! I wasn’t too happy with the build, as it doesn’t really convey what I was hoping, but it’s the best I could do with the bits I had at the time. I guess I will have to go shopping at BrickLink to see what else I can get which is more suited to this scale.
