I had been wondering lately whether it's possible to build 6054, 6066, 6067, and 6071 and other black vehicles (for example 6030 or 6061) with brown bricks.
I had a bit of a look through Peeron and I'm not sure that all pieces from 6054 are available in old brown (i.e. http://www.peeron.com/inv/parts/2462
), is this the colour you would try and use (I'd have thought so)?
I guess it wouldn't matter if there's other colours in there to make up for the unavailable ones?
Would you swap all the black for brown or is there some black that could stay because it may not be wood?
Regarding the brown pieces, what's the best method of getting these? Can you get bulk pieces for bricks, slopes etc or would you have to get specific sets and Bricklink etc the rest?
I know that most people have moved on from building the original sets but part from this example
(Forestmen's Hideout Redux), has anyone else tried doing this?
