Have a canal run through your
Lego City! Take a Gondola through the beautiful city of Venice! Welcome to this
new concept of Modular, with buildings on both sides and a canal in the middle.
You can keep the Modular closed to fit in your street of Modulars or open
it a quarter way to fit the famous Rialto bridge in the middle for a nice depth
perspective of the Modular. You can even open it all the way to put it on a
shelf in your living room, or you can even reverse the Model. It’s beautiful
from all angles!
The set features: (left to
right: Hotel Rialto, Palazzo Doge, the Rialto Bridge, Palazzo dei Diece Savi
and Palazzo die Camerlenghi. To make the set work I had to play with scale, the
front has about 6 stories to look like micro scale size. Yet the buildings only
have 3 stories inside to work with Minifig scale. The Rialto bridge is also
suited to work with both micro scale and Minifig scale.
The set features 8 characters:
- The Gondolier with his own Gondola and a ticket office below Hotel
- You can't picture Venice without a Jester, dancing and juggling around the city.
- A painter of the city, can you name any famous Italian painters?
- Mr. Handsome, with Italian charm, who also works at the newsstand.
- An Architect (part of the newlyweds couple), designing Italian villa’s.
- The lady in red (part of the newlyweds couple), with her cat.
- An ice cream seller, Italy has the best ice cream.
- A pizza chef, who doesn’t like a good pizza!
You might have seen the original version of the Venice
Canal Modular, sadly it never made the 10.000 votes. In the meantime I’ve had
time to make improvements, there is always room for improvement! Changes made
to the previous design are:
- The depth of the buildings
is now 8 studs instead of 6, increasing the indoor floor space.
- The rear of the buildings is
now closed off all around, but with large windows for access.
- No matter how you place the
building in your modular city, a Minifig can cross from one building to the
next using the bridge. Beneath the dark grey building you can make it water or
sidewalk, depending on what works best with your city.
- I got rid of most of the tan
and replaced it with white for the bridge, the hotel is now Coral.
- The height of the building
is more in line with most Modulars 10-6-6-2 bricks.
- The pizzeria got a major
upgrade with a large awning, sign and windows.
- Both alleys are now 4 studs
wide connecting directly to the bridge.
- All pieces are updated to
2019/2020. There are a few new parts/colors required by Lego.
