Since more than two years I've been steadily expanding my collection of Cafe-Corner-Compatible British buildings. It all started with 'A Taste Of India', built for a competition organised by Brickish and I kept adding more. I displayed several of these buildings at the Great Western LEGO show in Swindon in 2008 as part of a larger collaborative layout. Obviously, with my return to the Netherlands in mid-last year, participating in collaborative British/Brickish displays has become much more difficult. This is why I decided to build everything I need for my own little layout, which I decided to call Brickston Borough (after the London neighbourhood of Brixton).
- Only question, why red? - BrickinNick
- I considered dark blue as an alternative, but had more parts in and plenty of the ones I've seen in London are actually red.
- Dark red is probably better than regular red but it's not a big deal. - gambort
- I think reddish brown would've looked best, because then it would look like rusted metal (sort of). - BrickinNick
- How about a "max height" sign? - LostCarPark
- Most of the ones in London are painted, so it could be whatever colour the council decide to make it, and red is pretty common. - LostCarPark
- It needs it. the Routemaster wouldn't make it under that bridge. Trouble is, I've gone all anal and purist with this and have yet to find a suitable sticker.
- Great that you added a Beetle, even in LEGO you captured the real distinctive shape. - christianwhitehead53
- Thanks. My father used to have a Beetle like this for many years so it made for a nice addition.
