This model was built as a free-build concept work in November 2009. The main structure is my own work. The base and minarets are a joint effort of Ed, Simon, Stuart and myself; the result of a housefest, though I restructured and tiled the base after that. It dismantles paritally for transport - the main structure into two sections and the base separate, with the more delicate fiddly bits being removed and bagged. It was displayed at the Brickish Association Christmas Party 2009. The main structure has since been demolished but the base (albeit modified) and minarets are still extant, supporting a new main structure, until sometime in January when I will need the parts from it for models planned for the 2010 display season.
Well I am NOT going to get on the 'drooling couch' with Kelso and Phipson, that's how diseases get transferred kiddies. I will, however, be in the corner over there, rocking back and forth, mumbling incoherently...As has been said, this belongs on the front page! Amazing doesn't even cover it! MOCy Festivus!~H
It looks like an amazing lego sand caslte! I LOVE IT! The architecture is amazing and it's not often that you see something this size done in one color. Just very impressive on all accounts. Kelso's gonna have to make some room on the drooling couch for me on this one. ~ Chris.
I've never even had one of those. And yes, those parts on the open market would be exceedingly expensive.

*sniff* It's so beautiful... So Detailed... So... Expensive? Just how many T-1 Typhoons were put into this work of art? (Don't blame me, that's the only set I know that has plentiful tan) I mean, this should be up on the front page... Like, now! I just can't get over how nice it looks, let alone it stays consistant in repeated areas. VERY nice woork and merry christmocs!
