    I think that might be my favorite out of all of your models so far. It has a great aged look to it and superb details. Very nice work!

    Hello everyone,

    I have given my model of the London westminster hall a special winter treatment: I covered it in snow (salt) and added some LEDs inside. Please tell me what you think. I think it makes for a nice holiday decoration.

    These are absolutely incredible! I love the miniature architecture pieces, I need to look into doing some textured color prints, I've only ever worked with strong & flexible and detail plastics. Do you use Google Earth as reference? I've used it in the past to build a large section of Philadelphia out of Lego pieces and it was very useful! I hope you don't mind if I share this here, I'll post it as a link so it doesn't ill up the thread with a picture that isn't one of yours!

    Keep up the great work, I'm excited to see some more! Love implementation of the LED's as well!

    Love the models. I've ordered a couple to start me off and will be backing the Kickstarter.

    One point - I *think* your model is of Central Hall Westminster, which is a different building from Westminster Hall.

    Thanks Jul1an,

    You are absolutely right. I corrected the error!

    Hello everyone,

    Another update from Ittyblox here. Just wanted to tell you all about the latest addition to the Ittyblox cities: Paris! It's still just a work in progress, but this way I hope to get feedback before it's a done deal. So this is where I currently stand: for Paris we want to add a new set of baseplates. One with a diagonal street, that runs through when a second one is rotated and placed next to it. This way I can make the typical Parisian cornered blocks. I have added two images to give you an idea.

    I want to add many different typical Parisian buildings; houses, shopping centres and landmarks. Please let me know what you think, so I can improve this new Paris sets.

    Please let me know!
