City standard

One of these days I'm going to write an article collecting up the different micro standards. Anyway, a standard is a set of agreed upon dimensions and connection points so that people can join their creations together in a group display. The members of TwinLug came up with a set of standards for a great micro city display, which was on display at the LEGO store in the Mall of America. Builders were Bisonfuehrer, Roy Cook, Garth Danielson and Nathen Stohlmann. They're apparently expanding the display for future events. Let's take a closer look at Nathan's memorial and Bisonfuehrer's .

Thanks for the link! Since those photos were taken members of our LUG have managed to add a few more modules including a car dealer, a gorgeous apt/condo building, and a riverfront section all of which were on display at our table at MCBA Fallcon (a local comic convention) last weekend and next week at Twin Cities Brick Expo (http://www.tcbx.org/). It's not in the case at the Mall right now because of the travel but will hopefully be back there in some form in a week or so.

For anyone who might be interested we have finally published our spec at http://twinlug.com/micropolis-micro-city-standard/

We hope to hear from anyone who has any comments on it and would love to see pictures of any layouts.
