I am coming to Brickfest and have been working on a
3CS Town. I have the walls built, but will not have
anywhere near enough buildings to fill it. When put
together the Town walls take up an area of 7 baseplates
x 7 baseplates (it takes 25 32 x 32 baseplates to fill in
the center). Altogether we're talking 2 Gatehouses, 4 outside corners and 18 straights.
Now, the way the Town is contructed it needs to be in it's 7 x 7 baseplate configuration (you won't be able to mix and match them with other people's wall sections). But, I can easily take 2 of the outside corners and add a bit more wall (making it a "T" configuration) so that other wall sections could be added on to it.
This would make my town one 'sector' of a larger 3CS town.
So, my question is: Are you all interested in my
bringing the whole thing? When combined with everyone else's
wall sections would that be too much town space (argh, I said 'space') to fill for the amount of MOC
buildings you expect to have? I can, of course, also
bring a smaller section of the town (the front section
would be 7 baseplates x 2 baseplates) with me.
If you actually have space for all of this in your car/truck or however you ae planning to transport ths to BrickFest, I would strongly encourage you to bring as much as possible.
The CCC display is supposed to be a modular display. and if you layout can be incorporated into it, so much the better.
You say that there aren't enough buildings to fill your town layout, so I'm assuming you would be OK for other people's MOCs to be put inside your walls in the empty spaces?
One thing I'm wondering is you call this a CCC town, but you say it is not compatible with other CCC MOCs. Is this because the walls are a different size?
PLEASE fill out the MOC cards on the BrickFest website. THis way we will avoid running into "too little space/too few tables" problems.
