A pub inspired by one in Cambridge

You've seen plenty of unique models made with parts from the 4954 "Model Town House" kit before, but this one stands out because of how closely it resembles the life-size building it is based on. There were a few changes made (presumably to keep this from needing multiples of special parts), but the overall effect is still there. A custom sticker was used to print the logo on the side of the building, but the rest of this is all done with LEGO® parts. If the lamps on the front look unusual, it's because they're made with sextant tools for minifigs - this technique is getting to be pretty popular and has started showing up in official sets recently. The lamp on the side, though? That's done with a minifig's metal-detector tool. Now that's a clever new technique!
