- THE UNIXPLORIAN LEGO CLUB DOES!

Lego lets everyone create things. You may be hopeless at crafts, useless at woodwork, and usually make a mess of everything. On the other hand, Lego lets you build spaceships, cars, and trains. Lego is designed to be used by all. There is no technical skill at all required to create anything. There is nothing that you can't master. A Lego spaceship built according to the instructions looks the same if you make it or a crafts whizz produces it.


Lego lets everyone move beyond following instructions and create whatever they like. You don't have to worry that your technical skill can't keep up with your imagination because it's so simple that you can make things if you can find the bricks.


Lego is not just a toy; it's a way to be creative. With affiliate clubs all over the kingdom, we're building creativity one brick at a time!

Kaupang - Our Lego City

Layout Plan


Base Layout

    • Beach Area: Dedicate one end of the layout to the beach. Use blue baseplates for water and tan baseplates for sand.
    • City Center: Place your existing sets (#10312, #10297, and #10326) in the central area. These sets can form the core of your city.

 

Train Set

    • Track Placement: Since space is limited, consider a simple oval or figure-eight track looping around the city. Elevate parts of the track to create an overpass, saving space and adding visual interest.
    • Station: Place a small train station near the city center for easy access.

 

Detailed Suggestions

Beach Area

    • Accessories: To bring the beach to life, add beach umbrellas, chairs, surfboards, sandcastles, and sea animals.
    • Activities: Include a beach bar or snack stand, a lifeguard tower, and signs.

 

City Center

    • Buildings: Arrange your modular buildings (#10312, #10297, and #10326) to create a cohesive downtown area.
    • Roads: Use narrow road plates or tiles to create streets. Consider adding a small park or plaza.

 

Train Set

    • Track Design: Use flexible tracks to fit the limited space. Elevate the track using bricks to create a multi-level effect.
    • Train Station: A compact station with a small platform and ticket booth can be placed near the city center.

 

Additional Tips


  • Vertical Space: Utilize vertical space by building multi-story buildings and elevated train tracks.
  • Modular Sections: Design the city in modular sections that can be rearranged or expanded in the future.
  • Details: Add small details like street lamps, benches, and minifigures to bring your city to life.


These ideas should help create a vibrant and functional LEGO city within your space. Happy building!
