I’ve been busy this week with more of the Winter Village sets that is going to be part of a large Christmas display for a client. As well as the official sets I’m also building other features to make a very large scale diorama. My first job is to re-build all the Winter Village sets then I have an idea of the scale and will then build the rest of the diorama around the sets.
The latest one I’ve built is the 3rd of the village shops, after the toy shop and bakery. This one had the rare dark green colour. The same colour used on the LEGO Mini Cooper. It’s also the first set where LEGO added a vehicle to a set. Also For this LEGO made use of elements only found at the time in the Toy Story sets to make the band stand. A few years later in the Collectable Minifigure Series LEGO added a Saxphone player but in this set you get to build a saxophone. The challenge in this set was making the arched window and the round band stand. However LEGO found a simple solution that gave the perfect look.
Deliver sacks full of holiday greetings and gifts in the cozy Winter Village Post Office!
Continuing the winter scene series, the Winter Village Post Office is the perfect snow-covered setting. In the cozy post office, the worker is hard at work sorting all the mail into containers and sacks, while upstairs, there’s just time for the postman to take a break before setting off in the traditional post car with all the letters and gifts. From the pavilion outside, musicians fill the air with music, while children take in the wintry atmosphere by the park bench before throwing snowballs at each other – the musicians had better get ready to duck!
