Wow, I can't believe my log in info still works!
Howdy Everyone. I've been on a building hiatus for the last few years as I was finishing some non-lego career related stuff. I even sold the bulk of my collection to make room in the house and wondered if lego was something I would go back to. But building is just a part of me, even if I do tend to have long stretches of inactivity.
With that in mind, my most recent creation is a reflection of my building habits. I tend to build for a while, then leave it for a few weeks, then come back. So I wanted a long term project that I could keep coming back to. I started Trivel Village
about three years ago. Most recently I completed the village castle
. As most will notice, the castle is modular: the gate, tower, main hall, etc., are all distinct buildings without true locking connections. This will give me the ability in the future to keep adding to the structure instead of breaking the whole thing down. This also helps me because if there are parts of the castle I don't like, the structure as a whole will not have to be renovated just the module I dislike or have improved. I was inspired by my LUGmates who have a modular approach
to make our city layout always growing.
