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.
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.
May update 2017: Our newest addition is our Lego Crawler Crane, 7632 Brickset Link. I picked this up in Palma Sapin in a lovely Lego shop. I will do a full write up on it soon and link here. I added our latest minifigures from series 17. I’ve also changed the shuttle station. More work on the outside of Wayne Tower. Lot more progress on Lord Business Evil Lair. Both these have their own posts.
Placement of the Scarecrow set. New track layout in the container yard. Some new baseplates also added.
