Roight, today, it`s time to feature a really old set. As in, I was a baby when that was released, so let`s go back to 1979...
And back then, this garage set was released as part of what is now known as the "Town: Classic" range.
While it was only 75 pieces and a minifig, the set was, if you look at the available Town sets from back then, actually more of a "mid range" level set, like today`s 200 piece sets at 35 euro and the likes tend to be.
A single minifig, with the traditional smiley face which would be the mark for another 20 years in Lego, accompanied the set, wearing his blue overalls.
The garage is based on two green baseplates of 16x8. On this, red bricks lay out the edges of the small building.
This is then build up, and the fence is actually turning into a tool rack in a sort of prehistorical SNOT manner :-)
As the sides rise higher, garage doors and windows are included in the sides.
The roof is added, and the engraved stone with "Garage" is put on top of the building.
And then... I made a big boo-boo.
I forgot to take a picture from the completed set, as I had made a small video for YouTube about this oldie, and then took the build apart again. But you can still see the finished set here then, but you`ll have to cope with my ramblings on it. Luckily, it only is 2 minutes long...
