If you are a LEGO Architecture or LEGO City fan, or like to build historical LEGO sets, you will love these new custom LEGO pieces from BrickTW! Don’t get too excited though, they are not ready just yet; still going through final designing and testing. Just wanted to give you a little teaser of what’s coming! Please take a look.
Kevin from BrickTW first got the idea for making realistic looking LEGO roof pieces and roof-corners while looking at how to build the famous Old Summer Palace, known in Chinese as Yuan Ming Yuan (“Gardens of Perfect Brightness”), located in Beijing. This is a complex of palaces built in the 18th and early 19th century, where the emperors of the Qing Dynasty resided and handled government affairs, and is also an icon of Chinese architecture.
Kevin is working on creating four custom LEGO roof-elements that can recreate the beautiful lines and curves of a traditional Chinese roof. Please note however that it is only the corner piece that has that classic Chinese feel. The other three elements can, in fact, be used for any LEGO roof on any building; be that something in a modern town or city, or a medieval setting. Basically these custom LEGO roof pieces just recreate realistic tile-roofs, which can be found in many parts of the world. I would love to see these in a Mediterranean LEGO town!
As you can see the custom LEGO roof-elements fit perfectly with LEGO bricks both in size and style. And if you are familiar with the custom elements made by BrickTW, you know they will match LEGO’s quality and colors as well.
Speaking of colors; I hope these custom LEGO roof pieces will also be available (besides the beautiful brick-orange) in tan, brown, gray, black, dark-red and green. (Kevin, are you listening?) I know I will be getting a bunch of these for sure! How about you? What do you think of these custom LEGO roof-tiles? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!
