Lepin 15008 Green Grocer Modular Building Set Review - Part Two

This is part two of my Lepin Green Grocer modular review at its-not-lego.blogspot.com.  I'll be documenting the construction of the second floor of the Lepin set 15008.   This should be a relatively quick post, so I hope you have time to look at the pictures.   In the above picture, we are on step 10 and have added the beginnings of a fireplace and a fire escape.  I'm not impressed with the clugy looking fire escape hand rails, is there no way to make a better looking fire escape?

On step 20 now, we have the walls halfway bricked in with sand green bricks and a railing has been added to the interior stairwell.

Here's how the fireplace looks now.  The dark red bricks will be the second floor curtains.

This is the rear of the second floor.    See those small white windows?  I will be replacing them with different black ones.  I do this, because most times people won't see the back of my buildings, and because I am saving the white windows for future mods.  Only diehard modular fans will notice the difference in some of the parts I substitute.

Here's another look at the fire escape.

More progress has been made after step 30.  The staircase going to the third floor is in and so the small white cat is making himself at home.  All the windows are installed including the bay window and the large picture windows on the front.  Those curtains look so real.   Front balcony railings added to the front too.

The small black windows are in.  Do you prefer the original white ones or the new black ones I've used?  The fire escape has been extended upwards by another flight.

Looking at the back now.

Unlike the first floor, the second floor of the Green Grocer is quite sparse.  It only has a fireplace and some drapes.  I'll have to add some furnishings in the future.

Here is the second floor of the Green Grocer set onto the first floor.

The little guy seems to have found his baseball cap now.

That's it for the now.  Thanks for looking at the Lepin Green Grocer second floor pictures.  The roof section will be looked at in part three.

  1. I Like your reviews. And have a question: how do you compare the Lepin/Hsahne and other "non Lego" bricks to original Lego?

    1. Thanks for visiting, I still haven't found a bootleg or alternative brick brand that is 100% Lego quaility. They are all close but not perfect.
