Work needed to be done on the tables and the MOC for Brick Live London. On this note, I decided to change up area 51 and the train yard. I changed the backdrop to area 51 so that it was more structurally sound and easy to transport.

I moved it from the back of the city to the same space as the airport. Changed a few bit around and marked where bits went with plant and stone bricks. This keeps all the aircraft in one area.

The next headache was the layout of the track at the back of the train yard. As I am using the 9-volt system I can’t use the Flexi track. For some reason, the track is no positioning right. I don’t know if it is connecting wrong at one section and then this snowballs on round to the other end of the track. After a lot of debate, I got what I think is my best option for the small space that I have. Only time will tell.

Wayne Tower got its internal office furniture fitted. I’ve save and seen some great ideas on Pinterest. I bookmarked them then used a few different technics last night. A simple Google of Lego Furniture brings up some great stuff.

As this is a working office I fitted several desks. Some more high-class desks. A lounge area, drinks machine, water machine with rack. The rack has some wine glasses incase the minifigs get a bit stressed at work.

Filing cablnet, printer and photocopier are the other MOCs. The photocopier has some green minifig notes beside it and a swiss flag on top. Also in the middle of the floor is a large golf mat. Just in case minifigs get some spare time.

This is 3rd floor. Ive revamped the Batman level as it need larger windows wit a mechinism to gain easy access. Ive also the Joker break in t do on the next floor up. Also intend on fittling the Batwing 10916

Yes Bradleyville, well, part of Bradleyville will be at Brick Live London. Excited and nervous. Excited as this is all new to me and what most AFOL want to get to. Nervous as this is a steep learning curve, I’m in at the deep end and are my MOC’s good enough.

I’d took the plunge a few weeks back and submitted to display at Belfast Brick Live Show. The guys said why not try the other shows, I’m busy with the other dates but London suited. So as most of my MOC’s are still work in progress at 99% I was optimistic. But they seemed to like them. Time to get the finger out and get them 100% complete.

I’m taking Area 51, Car Park, Hillside, Wayne Tower and Lord Business Tower. As I’d never intended in removing them they are all going to need a little adjustment for travel and display.  I’ve been asking some other ADOF about travel procedures and tips. Bubble wrap seems to be the answer.

The show is 27th-30th July. Now to work on the MOC’s and Travel arrangements. I will be posting updates on the MOCS on

The latest build was the Lego Creator set 31053. Treehouse Adventures. This set was bought for me as a gift and one of those sets I would have bought myself, but unlikely to ever get round to it.

This set comes with a small base area, made up of green and blue so I decided to put it up beside the log cabin set I have. Most of the creator sets go well with each other. I do have a few houses and thought this would have gone well here bust is simply too big.

Build. The build was quite good, lots of small elements used to make bigger sections. The tree house folds out and has a great mechanism that allows the bride to drop and act as a set of ladders. Different shades of browns, greens, and blues add detail.img_5915

Minifigures. The set comes with 2 Minifigures. A boy and a girl. the girl is pictured with a paint roller and the boy comes with tools and hat for extra play.

Play.  With the folding bridge, extras that include a water pistol, wheelbarrow, and tools there seems to be a lot of hidden gems in this set. Bradley seems to enjoy it and it will look well in Bradleyville.  Nice little telescope on the roof, seats and water features add to the detail on this build.

Extras. There were some nice 1×1 spares but I just added them to the water feature below the tree house.

Value. RRP £25 and with this there is 387 bits and IMO great value with a great build.

Overall. Great set to have on the layout with some hidden gems, especially the mechanism of the bridge.

So on a recent trip to Palma, I uncovered a Little gem of a shop. Here I bout Lego Crawler Crane. 7632. It’s massive. It comes from the construction sets that where out a few years back. I am chasing after a lot of this set as it fits well with any city layout.

I got the set for 45 Euro. It’s used but I knew this was a good price as I’d looked at it in the past and it was well over £100. The crane’s boom stands above any other building in Bradleyville.

The only thing letting it down is the hook. I thought that the Technic Metal hook would have been a better idea. The track system seems stiff and doesn’t work as well as the new Nexo Knights set we have.

There is plenty of storage room for Minifigure tools and accessories. Cab sits well and lets easy access for Minifigures.

The rope system works well but Bradley hasn’t tried it to the extreme. The set comes with a small extra panel set. It also sits well with the other construction sets we have.

Wayne Tower Progress Report

So I moved Wayne tower to a more central part of the city. This giving it more height to build up right. I plan to keep all the Batman collection in this building.

It takes up a full 32×32 board. The pic below is 3 separate floors. the next floor will be the same shape, then after that, it will start to reduce in size to the Wayne Logo to the top floor.17662649_1471281236236150_6067597214996234240_n
