Lego time!

Sorry to those who want to see XENO, this is a project I have planned to take
care of for a long time, at least the Xeno section is updated with most
games and soundtracks!

Here it is, my 10 feet long Lego city! I think I built it around 4 years ago
and added LED-lights about one year later, sadly not all of them worked and
some where just too dull… so it was time to change all of them!

Almost the entire city

A close-up of the city

Step one was of course to take everything down and dust the shelf.


In total the city is split into 11 pieces including “backgrounds”, step two was to
rip out all the old elctronics and dust all the 11 pieces.

The old elctronics

Dusted and ready for new lights

I always wanted to have more mountains in the background so before adding
the new lights I borrowed my brother’s mountain parts and build a
larger mountain to the east and also a new one behind the harbor in
the west. I think it really adds to the whole.

Next up was the main work, soldering all those new LEDs, I think
I used about 50 of them in the end, sadly I didn’t buy enough cable
so I had to reuse some old onesby the end of the project, oh well,
no one is going to see them anyway.

The only picture I took from the “work station”

One part at a time, here is the lighthouse:


It’s easy to forget time when in the middle of a project, by the
time all LEDs was in place the sun had already rised, luckily I
still had the energy to finish up. Putting the city parts back up
and connecting all of them went quite well.

Sadly my camera can’t take pictures in the dark but I hope you get
a feeling of how it looks at least, enjoy:

West side, sadly you don’t see the new mountain to good

Core of the city

Ah, the new mountain, someone already climbed it

More close-ups, the train was one of the first ideas to add

The oil platforms, probably my favorite detail!
