Lego Town 6394 – Metro Park/service Tower 99 Complete Boxed Instructions 1988
Fortunately, Lego released their Small Car this year that goes back to the 4-wide scale and fits in perfectly with the cars in this set. It introduces a very nice building technique that allows for all the printed 2×2 tiles to be put up against the walls like signposts on a building. As mentioned, unlike modern builds, each step adds a layer across the entire model. The tower itself is quite a fun build.
I love the old photo of you, and your analysis of the set and the old scale is an appropriate touch. It’s unique, it’s classic After spending all those hours on BrickLink you imagine you know all the parts by heart – but obviously not.
There’s a fair amount of pieces added with every step, they’re added all over the model and if there’s a submodel included in a step, there will be other pieces you need to add along with it as you can see in steps 9 and 10 above. Great review of a set that I wish I had been able to get as a child. There’s a great amount of printed pieces and a notably different approach to stickering than we are used to today: My battered instructions manual is another testament of times gone by.
As the shop nears completion, the first of the gas station’s details are coming into place: This is my favorite Lego town set from my childhood and the biggest one too! The other two are the Shell shop clerk and mechanic. Let’s have a look. Plenty to do on site, and plenty vehicles included to drive across your town.

Other pieces of interest in this set include the minifig motorcycle, the large assortment of car parts, the car wash brushes and the jack. I could see a maximum of 2 cars per floor being realistically parked and then you could wonder about the need for a parking tower in the first place.
All the signage adds a lot to the model. Edited April 15, by Mr. There’s not a lot of complex building techniques in this model, but because of the many parts leggo in each step and several submodels built upside down, it can be a bit more challenging than your average City build.
The nostalgia shot is wonderful – look at the expression of awe on your younger self It’s a shame that jack piece is no longer in production. Sign up for a lgeo account in our community.
With no pego than five separate vehicles included in this set, we start off with some nice small builds to get us going.

Of course you can always replace the hinge bricks by lwgo simple 2×1 bricks and separate the two parts entirely, but for review purposes we’re judging the unmodified set. Eventually the airport and racer themes took over and was dropped as well.
Thanks also for the Thunderbirds and Top Gear references, that made my day. It is a set, however, that has its playability improved when put into a larger context.
The best way to do this is just go from left to right through each image. As an adult, I’m torn with the concept of Classic Town Thanks, Rapseflaps – superb review!
I enjoyed the nostalgia, as well as the comparison between modern and classic designs. As a wee lad I always enjoyed causing death and destruction in this way.
Some small pieces are not included in the image below they are in the build sectionbut they are only minor exclusions.
It will disappear almost entirely into the body of the car. The three cars differ pretty much only in color and roof type. I doubt the kids that leyo up with this set feel the same way about lefo stations today. Oego this is not the standard size for Lego cars these days and we must accept that the scale of is one of a bygone era. But now I found the stand on BrickLink, thanks for enlighting my day http: It was the first large Lego set I ever got, provided me with more building and playing pleasure than pretty much any other set and it spent many hours as the center of my town and my town stories.
Now that Lego vehicles are six studs wide and made with tyres twice the lsgo size, the small little cars leg this set have become more of a representation of the bygone 4-wide era than ever before.
It was one of the centerpieces of my Lego town. As such, you’ll have to make sure you take your time and scan the entire image for each step. Rather, all small models are on the first two pages. Notice the lovely printed tiles added as signage.
One interesting thing about building the car wash is that the car wash’s top part starts as an upside-down build. Notice the yellow covering the entire bottom of the vehicle. I can’t say this set has ever been on my radar, but what I like most is the logical, ordered way that this set functions, like it’s ‘real world’ counterpart – something that often seems lacking in newer sets. Obviously, you can’t place it on the lift and it can only just clear the roof of the parking structure.
