4954 Model Town House

Postby Siegfried » Tue Jan 15, 2008 6:10 am

I have been taking photos for this review for a few months and I finally took the rest of the photos last night.

Image
All the parts. If you want tan, this is the set to get!

Image
Main model.

Image
The garage is a great addition...

Image
...but the car only just fits!

Image
The main house is very nice looking.

Image
The windows extend to the sides...

Image
...but not the back.

Image
The chimney and drainage work very well, and I love the "basement".

Image
I think the front works very well. When I was making this I was multitasking doing weight training; do a set, do a step, do a set... and I ended up missing one of the row paths. I discovered this after I finished the basement. :-|

Image
The removable roof reveals BYO floors. Probably why this is called a Model house!

Image
The roof was quite interesting to build. This is my first large house set so it all was very new to me.

Image
I love the garage door.

Image
More nice pipework.

Image
This photo I mis-focused but there isn't much to see anyway!

Image
The door is a nice touch. The grill to the right on both sides is not just decoration as it hides the hinges for the door.

Image
I also made one of the sub-models. I was considering keeping this but I decided against it.

Image
Once again the sides have windows...

Image
but the back doesn't. The truck is there to make the photo more worthwhile!

Image
The roof to this one doesn't come off easily as all the tiles are used for the front.

Image
Just to clarify; these houses aren't attached so you can arrange them however you want.

Image
The fronts are quite elaborate and it seems that Lego were trying to make this almost like a simpler market street.

Image
The truck is too small for a minifig...

Image
...but it probably was my favourite car.


Thoughts

I highly recommend this set. In most countries it is good value for money, including Australia. The design is excellent and three instructions are included. (The third is a school. If anyone has made it and wants to post photos feel free! At least one person at EB has made it.) I love how each house has its own car. Due to the way the primary model is made it is a bit weak at the corner, but that was a design choice. My only real complaint about this set is how Lego is going though a mould transition and thus some roof slopes are rough, others are smooth. I can accept either, and Lego has been moving to smooth slopes for years now, but to have a set with about 50/50 is annoying. (The MTT was the same.) But that is my only gripe with this excellent set.
