Lemon Tree Condos is a block of luxury apartments in the residential area of Micropolis, with just two spacious units per floor.
The curious shape of this Micropolis block was inspired by finding three of the trans light blue curved windscreens in my parts drawers, which eventually became the balconies on the top floor. I decided a triangular shaped inner, thanks to finding another nexogon, with curvy edges would be quite ineteresting. I struggled for some time to come up with a suitable name for this one, but eventually settled on Trekantet Hus – which is Danish for Triangular House.
This is Kiwi Court, a block of residential flats which I build a few weeks ago. Each cantilevered floor sits at right angles to the one below, while the different heights of the two blocks adds some visual variety.
I recently received some 1×1 trans black bricks from a BrickLink order, along with some 4×8 plates in an unusual colour – medium nogat. I began playing around with them along with some white grille bricks while I was chatting to LEGO buddy Jakob during video call. Eventually I settled on this L-shaped block with a diagonal window pattern, which I thought worked well. So this is Nougat Court, another residential block that will fit in very well in the city.
Recently, I was rummaging around my parts collection and came across two black plates – part 2401 – which Bricklink calls Plate, Modified 10 x 10 without Corner. I thought I could use them as the top and bottom of a new Micropolis model. Krikand Corner is a block of apartments, which will look very nice in the residential area of Micropolis.
A few weeks ago the New Elementary website ran one of their occasional articles about Old LEGO elements – this time it was the Electric, Train Light Prism 1 x 3 (Design ID 4171). The author, description below. http://www.newelementary.com/2020/02/4171-train-light-prism-1×3.html, and I was very inspired to try something myself.
