This proposal serves as a tribute to the vintage newsstands that are increasingly becoming a rarity in our cities. These captivating spaces, nestled in parks or squares at the heart of towns and cities, are a treasure trove of miscellany.
This Idea brings to life a typical scene around these newsstands, including with decorative flowerpots and a quintessential fountain for those warm days.
[UPDATE July 2023] I've enriched this model with new elements in this update, featuring a tree that provides welcoming shade to a bench, along with a new minifigure.
I've integrated a variety of items such as magazines, brochures, maps, postcards, and other staples of a newsstand, alongside a detailed interior. You might even stumble upon magazines showcasing Minifigures!
The newsstand also features its own advertising space and, naturally, is equipped with air-conditioning to endure long hours, particularly during the summer and heat waves.
The build incorporates movable components, including retractable press panels and a fully foldable awning.
The Vintage Newsstand is an ideal addition to any construction (LEGO Modular or LEGO City) and, given its size and complexity, it's highly accessible for builders of all ages.
Some of the items in this model were inspired by my own city. Can you guess which one?
Feel free to leave comments or suggestions!
I hope you like it!
