    Thumbs up Rich's latest LEGO construction project...

    Roughly every 2 years, I dig all my Lego pieces out and construct something on a grand scale.

    Back in 2009, I built a Lego Theatre complete with working lights: http://s149.photobucket.com/albums/s...heatre%202009/

    I was gonna build another one of similar design until this new idea popped into my head...

    Obviously it won't look exactly the same and I'll have to compromise on a few things including some colours, but I hope when it's finished, it'll look awesome!

    A full set of photos (so far!) can be found here: http://s149.photobucket.com/albums/s...%20USA%202011/

    It is also gonna take quite a while to construct and will pass the winter months!

    Looks to me like you are building Main Street USA and Cindy's Castle.

    Yeah!! I don't have the room to get to the castle, but I am hoping to replicate (as best I can with the clours and pieces I have) Main Street Town Square and most of Main Street itself!

    Can't wait to see it finished. Do you keep them together or take it apart after a certain amount of time?

    Thanks guys! I'll keep posting photos as I take them. It's gonna take some time I feel but hopefully it'll be worth it!

    Once finished, i'll leave it a while before it is demolished and all the pieces put away again! it is one way to pass the winter months!
