As the question suggests...

I'm trying to build a city street in "midiscale" similar to that of Hong Kong, but I have no idea on where to even begin with something like this. This project is being built in LDD 4.3.10.

I can't build skyscrapers and cityscapes for the life of me, but I want to create a city street to replicate a scene from one of my favorite movies, hence me asking this question. I can't find any decent .lxf files that even remotely fit this bill.

The scene I want recreate is from Pacific Rim (the first one), where Gipsy walks into Hong Kong with a boat bat to face Otachi. This is the scene I want to create: enter image description here

I have the Jaeger and the Kaiju, it's just the cityscape that I don't have.

Does anyone have any building techniques? Anything at all?

I know this is asking for a lot, but would anyone have a .lxf file that they would be kind enough to share?

Below are screenshots demonstrating the size of each of the entities, namely the Jaeger and the Kaiju. A Minifigure has been added to give a greater sense of scale ->

Picture 1 Picture 2 Picture 3 Picture 4

Apologies for Otachi's right claw, hand thing not being on the ground. It is a pain in the butt trying to articulate these joints.

  • It would help to know which movie scene you have in mind. Then we might be able to narrow down the scope of your question. – Aziraphale Jun 24 '19 at 20:07
  • This has been added to the question, with an image provided from Google Images. Hope this clears things up – GipsyD Jun 25 '19 at 17:27
  • Spectacular! Can you post an image of the robot/monster to see what LEGO scale we are looking for? The scale very much determines the pieces and techniques to use. – Aziraphale Jun 26 '19 at 21:44
  • Of course. This will be added to the question shortly – GipsyD Jun 28 '19 at 16:16
  • From your LDD images it seems that you are building in minifig scale. The scene painting, however, has a completely different scale. Which of these should be the reference for the buildings? I think in the movie the monsters are much larger compared to humans than your LDD images. – Aziraphale Jun 29 '19 at 7:45
