Hey Lord Felix,

Thanks for posting the interior pics. They really show off details that weren't easy to see otherwise. I particularly like this SNOTty window:

The use of the tall corner slope in this pic:

and the candle here (those little tabs on the white piece really look like melted wax):

It's also cool to clearly see how you did the construction on the L-shaped building. That works out really well.

What a beauty, but can we get pictures for the scenes in the village?

The interiors have just added to the whole effect of the town. They have a very peaceful, port style feel to them. How did you make the windows?

Great work here Lord Felix! It was great to see the progresion of the MOC as you posted updates. The interiors, and the rest, are really well made! I wish I had time to pick some points to lay out, but alas...

I have to say, I really liked this town, it has a nice port city feel to it.

Update! Part Two is just starting! This side is going to feature a Mill (the building that is elevated, not completed yet, and it will have a working motor to spin the mill stone and windmill), Inn (The building on the yellow bricks), and probably a house under construction.

Can't see too much yet in the new pics, but it looks great so far. That inn is very nice, and the motor in the mill is a cool idea.

And I can't believe I forgot to comment on the last update! :roll: But anyway, that was very nice too, especially the trees.

Nice. This is looking great! I think you have a nice idea making it in sections and completely finishing them off before really taking on the next section. I sorta did this with my most recent MOC (Wolfpack tower redux, to be released at BrickFest) And it works very well.

As to the actual MOC it's looking good. I like what I see of the buildings for it already and the rockscaping seems to be coming along nicely. I can't wait for the finished product. The motor in the mill will be neat to see in action!

DUDE!!! :D That looks phenomenol! It's been a while since I checked on your updates, but I'm seriously very impressed with your recent additions. I love your characters you've got around, they all seem very occupied with what they're doing and that's something I've always appreciated. It's so much more exciting to see minifigs positioned to be doing something not just standing there staring off into space. Nice work all around. I hope you add bunches more! :)

Thank you for your nice words. I would take closer pictures, but I was afraid of my camera running out of batteries. My dock for my Kodak is broken or something :(

This is part 2 out of three. The other side will have this same idea, and this side will have the wall and have the same type of path.

Thanks again!

My many sorrys for the double post, but I have an Update!

Or Deeplinks 01-09.

Enjoy! The windmill uses an RCX programed so that if a touch sensor (Button) is touched, it will go off. Works great, and looks pretty good too!

Nice work Lord Felix!!!

It is really starting to look good, I like the use of the log walls, many of us who build in brick tend to forget that wood walls were far more common in earlier ages as well as more common for smaller villages.

I myself have yet to make a wood wall and that is a terrible oversight on my part. :wink:

Great update. The windmill looks cool, and I like the rest of the layout as well. Keep up the great work!
