About this creation
This is my virtual LEGO® rendition of the modern-day flag of the United States of America. The 13 stripes represent the 13 original colonies, while the 50 stars represent the number of American states.
The flag itself represents the ideals of freedom, equality, and justice. It represents the sacrifice of countless brave individuals who fought and died for the ideas that America was founded on.
I personally pledge my allegiance to this flag, and to the Republic for which it stands - one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
Totaling in at 1,557 pieces, this is by far the largest MOC I have ever built. In fact, I had to close out of all other programs while making this on my computer (music player included), just to give my PC enough memory to handle this awesome creation. I made the stars first, then placed them on the blue field. I then made the stripes in a separate file, and then combined the files’ content.
The stars use the same design as what went into my “STAR Corp. logo”, and are 20 pieces each, not counting the non-visible 1x1 round plate that attaches them to a blue backboard made up mostly of 8x8 plates.
Close-up shots of the star design:
130 studs = 104 cm (1.04 m) = 41.6 inches (over 3 feet!)
160 studs = 128 cm (1.28 m) = 51.2 inches (over 4 feet!)
* As usual, the program I used to build this is LeoCAD.
I then converted it to an .ldr file and rendered it with LDView.
