I had actually planned this week to have finished building the Roller Coaster, but since I’ve been sick for the past 5 days, I just didn’t get it done. So instead here’s a look at what parts of the city have improved over the past week. Video embedded below…
The Roller Coaster is huge (like, really really huge), and doesn’t actually fit in the space I had planned for it. I’m going to need to move the train line to fit around it, or at least position it at a different angle. But what I don’t want to do is have the carousel hidden being too obscured, so some serious finagling is going to be required.
On the city front, the main progress was getting the fence completed around the top level, and getting a staircase completed. You can see the completed version of this in the image at the top, but here’s a close up of the fence. Not only is it visually more interesting, but it also covers up where two baseplates are sitting on top of each other.
I made plenty of mistakes in my bricks order, the main one being that I ordered 1×8 blocks instead of 2×8 blocks, so had to resort to using 2×4’s instead – which I turned out not to have enough of. Even when my math is correct and I order the right number, I can still make a mistake and order the wrong thing. Pro tip – planning!
By next week I’ll have finished the Roller Coaster, and I can do a proper review. And hopefully I’ll also get a chance to get the train line to fit, and start re-building all the beaches. One side of the city (as you’ll see at the end of the video) is in need of some serious love.
