Another bargain was had on eBay recently, and the Bricktober Hotel (40141) was mine! It arrived today and the box was a bit squashed but I wasn’t too bothered about that.
I found it a much easier build than the Bakery, maybe because I wasn’t trying to do it on a tray on my knee. It turned out well, with some nice little details and landscaping around the side.
The hotel and bakery are going on a couple of Micropolis bases with some other Bricktober sets when I get them, and possibly made into a complete block eventually. I think they sit quite nicely together – although I’ve left them one plate higher than the pavement on their own 8×8 bases, in case I ever want to take them off again.
I will update you with a new photo when I have put something else on the board in due course.
