Here it comes!

The most popular streetscapes in the past month belongs to ZHEGAO's various streetscapes. Presently there are 4 streetviews released. 

Since the most popular sets should be the corner mall and the old tavern, a large number of reports will come out soon.

I chose to evaluate QL0922-- Western Style Shopping Mall first.

This is a high-rise department store moc, but you don't need to find the parts without a clue, as there are already separation packs of procedures. Besides, the bricks feel comfortable in handling. I myself use no hammer to complete the whole processing, which is impossible for other brands. 

This design is the original wedding dress shop. The 1st and 2nd floors are well and comfortable, and the third floor is "specially" designed. This is because of the patent of MOC author.

Now let's cut it short and have a look!

In total 2039 pieces and the package is good-looking.

Assembly

 

The new minifigure is with spine and flexible joints, which make them do some movements never done before. Image44.jpg Image40.jpg Double-sided printing. Image42.jpg Start assembling the base floor. Image43.jpg Can you find minions? Image41.jpg At the back of the building, the assembly way of plants is rare. Image39.jpg See minions from topview. Image38.jpg The revolving door is one of the highlights. Image36.jpg The elevator is gorgeous, too. Image37.jpg This crystal chandelier looks like Tony Stark's arc reactor. Image35.jpg In front view WED=wedding. So this is a wedding hall or somewhat one-stop wedding service shop. Image34.jpg The transparent bricks are a bit common. However, the tolerance is so small that you can neglect. Just see the straight line! Image33.jpg The floor bricks are rare ones that I can press bare-handedly. Image32.jpg See the long white bricks and what do they remind you? Image28.jpg It is impossible to insert the tube into the hole of 1x1 transparent brick. You can only use a knife to sharpen the stick first, which then still scrape the black rubber when it is pulled to position. Image27.jpg The roof top is quite obviously Western style. Image31.jpg At the back of 2nd floor are a large amount of windows. Just press, press and press them! Image29.jpg Remember when your Mrs Right/you tried on a wedding dress, how did you feel when the curtain rose? Image30.jpg At the end of the runway is the place for the new couples to rehearse. Please pay attention to the flat brick above. As there is no connection between the 2nd and 3rd floor, this piece is recommended to be changed to 1x2 or 1x3 bump brick. Image25.jpg The finished 2nd floor. Image23.jpg Image26.jpg 1st and 2nd floors are in combination. Image24.jpg Side view. Image21.jpg Back view. Image22.jpg Now start to assemble 3rd floor. Image15.jpg The yellow plates on the right is directly placed in two together without connection. Image20.jpg There are only two 1x1 bricks on the two sides of the white shape. Now there's no problem. But when you make side tiles on the back, you would know what is really difficult! Image18.jpg Image17.jpg The other side is the bar. Should it be BBQ in the center? Image16.jpg The clock cannot be too round, so the angle is already good enough. And this big clock obviously raises the entire street view. Image14.jpg

Image02.jpg Image06.jpg Image05.jpg Image03.jpg Appendix--Instruction mistakes:

1. In 18th step, the black 1x1 bricks are mistakes. It is recommended to put them on the top and bottom.

2. In 84th step, wrong color for the 1x3 brick with actual color light gray instead of apricot.

3. Step 102, 1x2 flat brick is recommended to be replaced convex brick. Besides, it is a worthwhile set of Streetview. You can't MISS IT!
