Leesa's Lego City update

- By Communications Volunteer, Leesa

Last week I continued working on the set up of my Lego City.  It is very slow progress and I am taking my time with it.  So far, I have completed about quarter of the train track and I have started to build up the scenery. 

Like a real city, the foundation of my Lego city has layers.  These layers include trestle tables, insulation and pavement.

I have different colours for different parts of the city: blue is for the sea, red is deserts, green is for the city. Here are two photos of what I did last week.

I am using 3 x 6 foot trestle tables together to make the Lego City, the dimensions of each trestle table is L1835mm X W762mm.  I held the three trestle tables together by using screws and bolts, and then I started to cut polystyrene insulation panels to fit around the tables and around the outside of the tables.

I have started to print out Lego plates with my 3D printer, in the colours of green, blue and red.  I haven’t finished all of it yet because I am still printing them off.  It takes about 10 hours to print 4 pavement plates!  

Then I put the polystyrene insulation half around the 3 tables with the green Lego plates and had to wait for them to dry – that took about 12 hours! 

Martini loves having the Lego city built around him.

While it was drying I had another trestle table that I started to put the track together on.  My Labrador Martini got in the way – he loves having his bed under my Lego City.
