(Those gray plates along the edges just cover the ugly structure underneath for these photos, by the way. Won't be visible once everything is finished, of course.)
Playing with water is fun!
Is the girl really happy about the boys arriving?
Focusing on the pond:
This is how it looked at an early stage:
Now for a proper integration into my city, I gotta adapt the houses that will be on one side of this pond and playground (they're currently sitting low on regular baseplates only) and build those for the other side which will be in line with my Tower Museum and its little river...
Of course you are allowed to offer ideas. :) I'm thinking about making it bigger anyway, so 1) is a nice idea for that. I might also add a wooden "castle"-like thing to climb up and slide down, by the way. 2) The gray slopes only hide the ugly structure below for these photos; in the end, everything around it is raised too - like the Tower Museum and the Italian restaurant. 4) The lights are intended for the path along that side that will be on the adjacent plates with buildings. 3,5,7) Good ideas...
If we are allowed to offer ideas on what we see may I add mine to a model I adore?
1.) Where the vendor is is a perfect spot for a boys and girls rest room 6x12 area (center is a 2x6 brick dividing wall) with just toilets.
Then the vendor could go on the side of it!
2.) I love the idea it's raised but now the question: how did they get up there? Perhaps 2 sets of stairs - one in the front and one in the rear would be nice.
3.) A mother with a baby carriage would be great and realistic!
4.) more lighting (maybe 3 more one in each corner)
5.)a bike and a skate board somewhere - shows how some kids got there
6.) the little trees could be added (3 at most)
7.) a gardner with shovel and spray bottle.
See a costume designer designs the winning dress BUT come the day of the fashion show a dresser adds the bling and a make-up artist does her face and a stylist does the model's hair. It's a group effort!
I am only adding the bling!
No, I think the little merry-go-round fits quite nicely here, anything bigger would make it too cramped. (And using this single round 4x4 plate is a simpler, more unobtrusive design than putting something together with larger plates, too.) But what gears are you referring to? The old tires used as cushions under the seesaw?
andreas, i admire your work, and you ve worked hard to achieve this level of greatness, first glance, just perfect look, is where you re heading, as a peer creator, and , hopefully friend,i think you should make the merry go round bigger, i ve also notticed something you left out,i saw gears underneath the plank game! he he he,you re really something!
Thanks, everyone! – Hans, I've actually seen small rotating discs on playgrounds that are less than 1 meter in diameter (for smaller children), so I think this 4-stud "Legoization" isn't that unrealistic. :)
great work andreas, does your ambition has any boundairies? lol! seriousely, this is pushing the limits, i admire your ambitious nature, and resolve, i loved how you carefully picked the faces of the figs, your park,with many layers of depth is just wonderful! exteriors are fun to work with, aren t they? your water effect looks awesome as well, i can t really picture your layout with this, but, i can t wait to see your vision complete! great work andreas!
