Department Store Black &White


Black & White is probably a colour of this building, but I prefer it as name. Well, I browsed Eurobricks and I noticed a quite nice tenement builded by Jameson42:

I like here those large, glass, modern windows, colours, plants and a roof builded out of large tiles 8x16 (I like these bricks very much :D ). All details are nice and well chosen. The builder used there a technique, which uses modified plates 1x2 and 1x8 with door panes and large glasses 1x4x6 to make big exhibition glasses without frames. I like this technique very much. :) There is also a light grey pavement instead of dark grey, but I don't commend this, because I'm a conservative in this question. :)

  1. Thank you for the blog feature! A couple corrections, though... I used "Plate, Modified 1 x 2 with Door Rail" and "Plate, Modified 1 x 8 with Door Rail" to hold the window panes, not 1x2 grill tiles. Also, the windows are 1x4x6 panes, not 1x4x5.

    The use of light bley instead of dark bley for the sidewalk is entirely due to my limited parts supply. I have a ton of light bley 2x2 tiles, but no dark bley whatsoever. I will likely be changing this after the new year when I can afford a bricklink order.

  2. Uh-oh! Thanks for correction. :) I never made windows using this technique, I only guess. :] I hope you will be a reader of my blog. ;)
