Lego Landmarks in RIBBA

Materials: RIBBA frames

I wanted some original art in my hallway at home, and have always liked the RIBBA box frames. After some thinking I decided to do a play on the classic ‘London, Paris, New York‘ trio. I purchased models from the Lego Architecture range, one for each city, and a set of three large RIBBA box frames.

I painted the backing board of each RIBBA frame with light blue paint. I then built the Lego models, making adaptations where required so that each model would be able to fit in the 1.1/8″ recess of the RIBBA box frame.

Working with printed images of each city, I was able to cut out various shapes of coloured cardboard and glue them all into place to create backgrounds/foregrounds for each city.

Quite pleased with the end results!

    Beautiful handiwork!

    This is a great economical solution to display cool Legos, such as collections of custom minifigs. I would have never thought of the cardboard cuts to make the skyline, but I think it works very well because you have gone for a matching colour palette.

    I freaking LOVE this! I wish Lego had a Boston landmark so I could copy your idea with my own city.

    I’m going to assume they are not hung in this orientation but why go to the bother (time consuming) to do this then not rotate the picture files?

    Yours as ever.
