Behind the scenes: NOT what my LEGO city looks like
If you ask for a video tour of what you see above, it will be for naught, as the photo was taken a week ago and my LEGO city looked like this for only a few minutes. I remain, as from the start, vehemently opposed to hosting official sets on my layout, but since I had all of these modular buildings, well, built, I decided to exploit them very briefly. I moved them around in various configurations just to give me an idea of what it will look like to have structures of certain heights in different places. In hindsight, I suppose I could just as easily have done this with plain cardboard boxes. Oh well!
The good news is that even when I forcibly blocked my personal anti-set bias, I still didn't like the look of these modulars in my city. Not at all. They don't match my style or the intended timeframe. Even worse, so many thousands of little LEGO cities around the world are anchored around official modular building sets that placing these in mine made the whole thing instantly look generic and unimaginative.
Back to MOC building I go.
