MocOlympics Round 2 Luke Chapman vs John 55555
About this creation

Here's the category description in full: Shrink It: Take something huge, and make it in microscale. Looking for creative ways to capture the details of the large MOC and translate them into microscale. Can be one of your own MOCs microsized, an official LEGO set, or another person’s MOC (as long as you properly credit the creator by linking to their creation and mentioning them in the commentary).

As you can, hopefully, tell. I chose Matija Grguric's amazing Castle New Rock to shrink.

10 days in the making, don't know how many bricks used in construction.

The 1 x 2 tile is the boat, as seen in this picture of the original, which you already knew, anyway.











Scaled down the light-up functionality. I used one of those new-ish light bricks. You know the ones. The shape of the cross gets a bit lost in the glare, though.

For anyone curious, this is approximately 1:4 scaled to Matija's original. I tried to keep this as consistent throughout, but naturally, I strayed, occasionally.

Good luck to everyone! Oh and no errors, no?

Congrats on advancing Luke, I recall you losing out on a close decision on a microscale build a couple of years back so I hope this is doubly satisfying mate. Great build, well done.

Excellent lines, attention to detail, and a fantastic tower gave you the edge. Congratulations, you've won a tough match! PS, for my complimentary adjective, I'd like to be known as the "dashing" Matt Mahan.

Quoting Mitchell Andre Congratulations on your victory!
Ha! You're a bit premature, Mitchell. The [complimentary adjective] Matt David is still to cast his vote. Could go either way.

Luke, this is now the third time today that I have a look at your and your opponents entry. Both of you did excellent jobs and although there's nothing to criticise here, my vote goes to John. It's a 51/49 decision for me, since I'm slightly more impressed by his parts usage.

Brilliant. Still one of my all-time favorite castles and you captured it perfectly in miniscale. Bravo, good sir, and good luck with the other judges!~H

Instantly recognizable! While John made an excellent redition of his chosen "micro" I think yours took it just that step further to take it home. You got my vote! ~ Chris.

Awesome work Luke. The water is my only real nitpick, but even then it is really well done. Best of luck mate!

'Ding' - recognized it right away! Love it, and a worthy tribute to one of my favourite builds. Lee.

Good job. From the first picture, it doesn't look scaled down much because you captured so much detail, but as you go through the rest of the photos you see it more.

Nicely done. I like the cross detail and the way you did the roofs with the cheeses slopes; they're remarkably like the original. Analyzing this I had a hard time getting a grip on the layout from the many angles, but apparently you didn't. Regards - John

I recognised this instantly - kudos to your great job in replicating as a micro version. I'm sure Matija would be honoured! ~Thoy

This is beautiful Luke. Your attention to the original detail is obvious, you must have spent ages studying it. If I were the original creator I would be honoured to see this. Well done.

Indeed, this is a fine mini-MOC! I love the way you captured the details of the original. Perhaps I should give this a try, since I'm now on the outside of the competition looking in (and I'm not unhappy about that, for the record).
