My contribution to the Brickworld 2011 Lord of the Rings, Journey of the Fellowship collaborative layout.
About this creation
The township of Bree with the Inn of the Prancing Pony, as seen (and read) in Lord of the Rings, the Fellowship of the Ring.
I transported this little village in my pack from New Zealand all the way to Chicago. It went on 4 flights with a total of about 22 hours flight time, 8 cargo load and unloads and survived very well indeed. Fortunately the alligators that the shipping companies hire for cheap labour that munched up my friends' creations are not employed at the airports.
Not much to say really, it was a challenging build because I don't usually build complete structures! I had a real blast at Brickworld last week and met so many awesome people. I encourage you all to come.
This is amazing! The detail is magnificent and everything looks great! Congratulations on winning "Best small building" was it? Not sure if this is really "small," but I guess Brick Worlders have different definitions. Anyway, great job!

I can't say enough about this wonderful build Leda. In a sea of "monster" builds on our layout yours was the delicate flower that took the WELL deserved trophy. Thank you so much for your contribution to our layout. You are truly an artist beyond compare. ~ Chris.
I loved being at the 'small build' end of the table next to this. Your build is a testament to what can be done on a limited footprint and a forced restriction of parts. I was in awe of the details and the composition you created. The use of negative space and the 45 degree angle made for compelling and repeated viewing. Congratulations on your accomplishment, you deserve it!
gorgeous, i just wanrt to play dnd now. Love the layout, so nice to see that raised level at the back with the feeding horse, just gave the whole thing that sense of real diomensionalism, if you now what I mean... Splendid and cosy...
Love those chimneys and the use of cheese slopes to create the roundness on the roofs, You really captured the feel of Middle Earth in a relatively small space, especially in comparison to the Herculean MOCs surrounding it! LOL As Matty stated, very deserving of it's award.~H
A really supreme build, Leda! Everything flows so well throughout the dio, and the mixture of techniques is impressive. You definitely held your own amidst the collaboration. Very well-deserving of the award!
