About this creation
This creation was inspired by Shannon Ocean's "Iraq" http://mocpages.com/moc.php/66353
I also wanted to make something about a country, and this is the result:
"The half of Arabia" should represent the rich part of Arabia with the oil pump and the skyscrapers. Its called "The half of Arabia", because there are lots of other people there, wich are very poor.
the flag of Saudi Arabia with the pipeline going through it.
The oil pump.
The microscale skyscrapers.
the flag with the palm leaf, a parto of the embleg of Arabia.
This is pretty sweet, nice job and good concept. The middle-class is almost a thing of the past even in the west. An Australian worker makes about 40k a year and the typical city home costs about 600k. How on Earth does that work?
Man, MOST countries are that way... the world itself is divided in a 20% of people sharing 80% of the world's resources, and this unbalance is growing faster every year. Nice MOC, though, to me it's worth at least 3 points.
It is a lovely build, and a great idea. I am certainly loving the lateral thinking that is coming out of these games, and this is a good example of the same. However, I have to agree with Keith, it does seem to be missing something that is keeping this moc from making it to that five level. Still, it is worth four (4) points. Lee.
I like it

AWESOME! This is an incredible build. I just love the effect of the huge oil derrick towering over the skyscrapers. The whole thing just has a great feel to it. Congratulations on a great build sure to get us some points! ~T
