London is calling

With this first post of 2019, I want to wish all followers a happy new year!

Late last year, I posted about the modular building sized model of the Leaky Cauldron I had built. This post continues the London based theme with a bit of London scenery, that will go well with any London based Harry Potter scene – a phone booth.

The model is has a 5×5 base as I found a 4×4 base to look too small (and lacking detail) while 6×6 looked rather large next to a minifigure.

While the red phone booth is obviously iconic to London, it does also serve an important role in the Harry Potter universe where the Ministry of Magic uses a telephone booth as the visitor’s entrance. The phone booth transports visitors from ground level to the Atrium on floor B8. To activate the entrance, one dials 62442 (spelling “magic”) on the telephone, as we discussed in our post about the Ministry of Magic last year.

The floor of the telephone box shuddered and the pavement rose up past its glass windows; the scavenging Thestrals were sliding out of sight; blackness closed over their heads and with a dull grinding noise they sank down into the depths of the Ministry of Magic.

In case you want to build your own telephone booth, I’ve created instructions how to build this on the Instructions page.

Build the magic!
