round roof
this is my solution to the round roof problem, I had thought of covering it in tiles or 1x1 cheese slopes to give a smooth finish.
About this creation








the 12x3 wedge plates are fixed together and the 12x2 plates are just held in place, as you add the next level you just add more 12x2 plates. once built it is quite stable.

Quoting Ben King Very Nice! I really like how round it looks! How long did it take you to create this technique? It looks very complex. 5/5
This developed over thee stages top, middle, and bottom, and took just over a week with a few days waiting for parts.

Okay, I was just curious. And I agree, I think a perfectly accurate Hogwarts would be nearly impossible! But, I'm also one of those people that has the basic layout of the castle (in the films) committed to memory. I have a few video-games from a few years ago that show an accurate layout, so that is how I'll be doing mine...for the most part!

I don't know I'll just try to best fit each space, so some interiors won't be where there supposed to be. I think I'v already started with the library as I'v put that above the main entrance. I think it would be very difficult to build an entirely accurate internal/external model. but then again I'm no expert I just build what I think looks good.

Will you be doing an interior to Dumbledore's office..? Seeing as theres no way it could fit within those three mini-towers like in the films...

to anyone trying this you'll find the use of a rubber band to hold the top of the cone in compression a great help. this can be removed as in 2 of my cones or left in place as in the first one, I must be honest it's a hair band of my daughter's it's black and very fine. I did use a grey lego one with the first one but after 2 failed orders for a black one on bricklink I just started looking around the house.

This is great Allan! Such a clever solution to a complex build. I will deffinately be using this, if you don't mind of course (I'll make sure I say you thought it up)

Nice! Great solution to one of the quintessential Lego conundrums out there. Now if you'd be so kind as to come up with nice, smooth dome for us all?
