UPDATED: Wednesday, April 13, 2011. With the addition of the plates and getting the all important 1x16 white brick the sky was the limit! I had more room! So i made the boom box brick a part of the wall as if it were built in! Oh notice the coffee cups with lids and the fruit punch and pinapple juice dispensers! I also added stenciled bricks to reflect the food you could buy! (Kind of Posters!) I added a co-worker and if you haven't noticed both workers are dressed in RED, WHITE & GREEN the Italian Flag's colors reflecting my ITALIAN Heritage! I think we should have a new term to add to Modification --- UPDATE, one where the flavor of the original is honored but is UPDATED made fresh with new pieces that didn't exist when it was created. Or one where it can fit in with either the CITY Style or the Modular Style.
Here I offer the first (I hope it inspires some of you to try this NEW area) Select Foods - AN UPDATE!
I am waiting for a 1x16 red brick and some flags!
Note I removed the 2x3 white wedge and added a coffee stand with rolls to eat!
I made the radio it came with a part of the store. I adjusted the size to fit my City Style buildings and I added a Newspaper stand!
When I get the baseplates I am now using for city streets there will be a post card stand! I love the new colorful awning! I also added outdoor lighting and a roofline to go with my eurostyle roof lines! And I also added a wall of advertizements like most walls have on city streets! I included a picture of the original set from the early days so you can compare and do a before and after! I also started with my first designs before the final ones!
Being a retired teacher I like showing the history of a design!
About this creation
For one year I will honor, remember and respect the victims of 9-11. Each of my creations will have a 9-11 memorial starting off the page. I'd like to give a big handshake, hug, kiss to all the people here on MOCpages that remembered by creating WORLD TRADE CENTER buildings done in LEGO you too honor the fallen of 9-11 GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU!
