Great idea, I will use that!

That's amazing, Dorking. I love the main stand and the Whitehorse. Couldn't you have built the Arthur with two rows of lego in the step rather than one; then it wouldn't be so steep and would look more realistic.

Yours also looks really good, danibutcher (I'm lying).

Just finished mine, took about a week putting in a few hours a day. Very satisfying actually, if frustrating at times (sausage fingers be warned!)

A few tweaks for slightly better accuracy:
- Raised Whitehorse floodlights a bit plus turned them portrait
- Added support to back of screen
- increased Main stand floodlights/pillars from 4 to 6 and put smaller lights on
- Added red and blue brick supports under the Arthur, looks more old school before the horrendous yellow advertising we have now!
- put floodlights on Holmesdale roof
- made the corner area between Arthur & Holmesdale blue and even added the ‘TV studio’ cabin!
- finally, used a few spare bricks for the gates on Holmesdale road, looks abit dodgy though!

Must admit, I am tempted to put some green bits where the grassy knoll is, on the corner of Whitehorse Lane/Park Road (where all the away fans sit on the wall and eat chips)

It’s complex and a model I would hope to complete by 2042, or 44 at the latest.
Happy to post news every time we lose 1-0 at home or if we fail to sign anyone, just shout...
Maybe you could post an artist mock up occasionally or even one of a totally new build at somewhere like, for example, the Crystal Palace Sports Centre just to keep our interest going?

Finished!

I used most of the good suggestions on this thread - I reinforced the scoreboard/big screen, turned the Whitehorse floodlights to portrait alignment, put red and blue stripes on the front of the Arthur Wait roof, and put the Holmesdale floodlights on the Holmesdale roof

I also did a couple of other things -

I added another line of 'light grey' bricks across the top of the Holmesdale roof, just to give it a little bit more curvature;

added the grassy knoll on the corner of Whitehorse Lane and Park Road

Good luck to everyone else still building!!

Excellent work, DE. Take it you’re not going to dismantle for another day of boredom?

Not a chance!! It's got a pillowcase over it until I think of the best place for it. Ideally I need a sideboard!

I’ve been building this to kill time during lockdown. As mentioned, it’s very fiddly! The first page took about 2hours but it quickly cuts down. Still, I’ve spent between 45 and 90 minutes on it most days for about 2 weeks so it’s a good filler.

I like the idea of putting the Holmesdale floodlights on the roof so I’ll take that one.

I disagree about sorting the colours. Keep the pieces in their original bags. I was tempted to spend what would be hours of time to split them into colours until I worked out their system. Each bag has about 4 different types of bricks. As they’re different colours, it’s much quicker to find the right brick than if they were sorted into separate colours.

Still, I’d recommend it for anyone who’s bored but patient! It’s a good project.
