As you may remember, a couple of weeks ago I showed you the custom LEGO roof-tiles LEGO customizer BrickTW was working on. Here is the original post: Custom LEGO Roof-Tiles & Elements by BrickTW.
At that time the custom LEGO roof elements were not yet ready, but now they are available! These are great pieces to enhance your LEGO Arhictecture, LEGO City creations, or historical LEGO creations.
If you would like to place an order, and you would like some help with calculating what you would need to make a nice roof, here are some very useful charts by BrickTW to show you how many of each of the custom LEGO roof pieces you would need for various roof-assemblies:
Here is a LEGO roof design that is a bit more elaborate and would work well for a larger building. Please note that the small bits and pieces (tile, jumper-plate, cheese-slope) are in fact the same as regular LEGO elements, so if you already have them you don’t need to add them to your order.
And here is another design with a bit of fancy roof-work, mimicking the elaborate roofs in traditional Chinese architecture. And of course this design would also work for a Chinese restaurant in a modern LEGO city, a dojo for your ninja in training, a monastery, or whatever you decide…
And of course these custom LEGO roof pieces are not only for making Chinese roofs! The curved-up corner element does have that Asian feel, but 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. As I have said before; I would love to see these in a Mediterranean LEGO town!
Currently the custom LEGO roof pieces are available in orange only. Hopefully other colors will be added in the future. Please note that BrickTW is a small customizer, so they can only release so much at a time, and need to recoup some of their manufacturing cost, before they can add new products and colors.
If you would like to order some of the roof-tiles, you can check out BrickTW’s BrickLink Store, or BrickTW’s Direct Store. Both have the roof pieces listed, and there is a 20% off sale going on right now!
