I haven’t built anything for the residential district of Micropolis recently, with my last few models being industrial, offices or leisure based. So this block is called High Cross, which accommodates a total of nine large apartment, one on each floor which is set at right angles to the one below.
A lot has changed in my LEGO room since I did my last Blockville update from Old Town back in February 2019!
This is my latest Great Ball Contraption module which is built to a design by Matt Norman at greatballpit.com where the plans are freely available.
A while back I got a bulk lot of pieces which contained several hundred of these – part 63082 – which BrickLink snappily calls “Plate, Modified 2 x 2 with Tow Ball Socket, Short, Flattened with Holes and Axle Hole in Center”. Rather long-winded, but I wanted to use them for something and decided another high rise Micropolis block was the way to go.
In my first update from New Mars, I showed you the foundations, monorail and cargo train tracks being laid. This time we will take a tour around each of the areas of the base, including an on board view from the Monorail train!
My latest quartet of Themed Minifigure Habitats are not linked, but we start with Spiderman, followed by CMF Series 10’s Motorcycle Mechanic, then Series 17’s Highwayman and Corn Cob Guy.
