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.
This is the Dewlucks Estate, a new development of social housing for the residential area of Micropolis.
My local LEGO Stores have had the 2×2 white turntable bases in their Pick A Brick walls for ages. I grab big handfulls every time I go, which means I have hundreds of the things. I have used them in the past for aircon vents and roof detailing, but this time I wondered if I could make them a feature of the cladding for a building. I chose a contrasting blue plate to go underneath, and interspersed them with 1×2 trans dark blue tiles for windows, and Turntable Towers was born.
This LEGO Micropolis block, called Limehouse Flats, was completed back in February but it has been on display for a while at one of my local LEGO stores, in the Community Showcase, so it didn’t get filmed until recently.
This is the first quarter of the block which makes up Four Seasons Plaza. It is a development of social housing called Spring Heights, and is based around a spring-themed colours scheme of green headlight bricks for the windows, lime bricks for the walls, white floors and orange accents.
