This office block is called Blackthorn Heights and was inspired by acquiring seven 6×10 black plates which I used for each floor. And when I think seven, I always think rainbow colours, so it was inevitable that each floor here would feature a different colour of the rainbow as a highlight. It is called Blackthorn Heights.

As I mentioned during my Road To Billund series, I was interviewed by Beyond The Brick for their YouTube channel, about my Micropolis MOCs which are currently in the LEGO House Masterpiece Gallery. It was a lovely early Christmas present today to find they have now published their full tour of What’s New at LEGO House for 2020 and included my interiew in the middle, which starts at 4’26” if you want to skip ahead to that.
The Brick Tubers Network is a group of great LEGO AFOLs on YouTube, who love to share their passion for the brick. For Christmas, we decided to do a collab where we would all make a minifig Habitats along a Christmas theme. Here are mine:
The LNUR LEGO Train layout was looking very impressive at the Shildon Brick Show this year. Thanks to builders Isaac, Jamie, Pete and Richard for letting my camera get a passenger’s eye view of the goings on around the track. They have made some awesome engines, rolling stock, freight wagons and scenery. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.
I normally exhibit my Great Ball Contraption models with my LUG, the London AFOLs. But recently I was invited by friends in the Brick Alley LUG to take my models to their Shildon Brick Show in the North East. The line kicked off with a series of my GBC builds, which then fed into some really nicely themed models from the Brick Alley members, many of whom were first-time GBC builders. There were some familiar designs on show, but also a few which were original concepts, so it’s great to see how much they achieved for their first GBC lineup at a show.
I love the colour combination of trans light blue with white, and have been using it quite a lot in my recent Micropolis builds. This model was inspired by finding a dozen or so white 3×3 plates in my parts collection, and fiddling about with lots of trans light blue 1×1 bricks to form these stackable squares. This exlusive development is known as Aqua Place and it is situated not far from Micropolis Bay with easy access to all the leisure facilities there.
