About this creation
When our favourite website experiences problems, we realize how much we value it. Thanks are due to Sean et al for beavering away to fix it. I only hope they do a better job than these guys...

'When red light shows wait here' Ho hum. Another dropped stitch in life's rich tapestry..



At least they're all busy. Well, most of them...



That excavator is from the 8888 ideas book - a wonderful repository of vintage brilliance. Not a MOC, then..



Does he do any work ?



That's the last of the debris. Now for the tricky bit...



'OK! Ready!'



Line it up. Nice and slow. Steady...



Steady...



Oh, Monkey Trumpets! You knew that would happen, didn't you ?



'One of us'll have to fix that.'
'Yes, or we'll have broken pictures for all eternity...'



'Quick! Fill it in...' That portaloo shouldn't be there, right next to the pavement..



'Good. We'll get this crane driver to move it. Did he make that with the 850 and 855 sets ?'
'How should I know..?' Sort of a MOC, then...



OK, in position...



And lift it up...



Oops! Ewww! Finally a chance to use my odd shaped brown piece...



Hide it with a roller... it steers, there's an engine in there somewhere.. hooray! A MOC!



'Are you going to do any work ?'
'What ? I'm just wondering if we'll ever see a modern car go past...'



'Oh, now you're just being ridiculous...'



With thanks to Sean Kenney and all those who make this excellent site what it is. Get well soon, MOCpages!

Glorious and Nostalgic Lego ! You are a lego builder of similar Ilk, or at least I used to be, now I`m just a collector of lego Knights, and I`ve had a jolly good effort of Castle. I sold all my Technical Lego on ebay a while ago, except for the tech. bricks, always useful. Anyway, your stuff is super and takes me back to my childhood and the magic of building vehicles with the period technical bricks & pieces and Lego Villages of mini figure scale. Long may your rather skilful lego building continue !>.....well done to you Nick.

Looks very nice. I can see that those bricks are from old sets. Like those old lego figures.

Oh, this is so retro! I love the usage of all these vintage parts, especially the "not so mini figures" and the old System and Technic wheels. I recognized the excavator instantaneously, as last week I had looked after some of my old LEGO stuff I still have in the basement, and had found some old intruction books, including 8888 and 8889. Some of the models in that books are still cool.

I love this creation - so many great details. It was nice seeing some of them 'in the brick' at the show. Stormbringer - Noooo! good luck stealthy nick ;). I've got Leda kat - do you remember me saying (at the show) that I bet I will be matched up with her. Oh well at least I got to R3. Hope your flu has gone? I've come down with man flu too. Tom and i will hopefully post the Swindon moc on the weekend :).

Quoting Vincent Rozenberg Wow this looks great and fun to play with. Did you make the digger or is it a set? And where can i get these old-school sets.
Thanks Vincent. The digger is in the 8888 ideas book. I've had most of these sets for 30 years, although they can be found on eBay.

Wonderful work. I did get a kick out of the water main break and the poo. Speaking of which, I can't review your London Bus because the links are broken. Good luck in the Olympics Nick.

A good laugh reading you!! It's obvious you have fun building. As the others say, I'm amazed about all the old sets you gathered. Some "souvenirs" for me... A pleasure to watch!

Its so amazing, so many old studded models which I like so much (the yellow digger which was once blue, the road roller from 851, too much to list). Im speechless

Great MOC. Although I dont see many smiling motorists after a queue in roadworks! But the Lego town is a more cheerful one than ours! :D Keep up the good work!

I don't think I've seen a creation with these original Lego figures in it for a very long time, I like the fountaining water effect.

Monkey what!?! I you thought you were confused when I change my "name"... Anywho, really great dio, and excellent use of that brown stuff. Also the broken water line was really cool.

Hahaha monkey trumpets!!. Great work nick I love the scaffolding, wheelbarrow and the water spray. I love it all!! I don't have 8888 but do have 8889, those old idea books were so cool and an excellent way to improve your skills.

Brilliance!! Such a great scene - I love the story and the mix of MOCs and old sets. I have a lot of the pieces to some of the sets in this, as well as their instructions and idea books, but they are from well before my time so I've never had them built (I was given a big 'ol bucket of early 80s Technic when I was little, so whilst I recognize all these sets I never got to experience them first time round). Anyway, excellent subject matter, great MOC(ish), 10/10 : )

This is just... so... old school! I love all your vintage lego technic designs, because it remembers me of the good ol' times (not that these times aren't good). The portaloo accident is especially hilarious. Nice work!
