MIT Round 6 E.K.O Vs Raphael Heusser
This is my entry to the FINAL of the MIT, in the category: Aesop's Fables.

This is my entry to the FINAL of the MIT, where it's Sweden Vs Switzerland. For my category "Aesop's Fables", I decided to make a MOC from the story "The farmer and
the stork
". Hopefully, the story is accurate. I haven't heard the story before, I just based it off information I found on Wikipedia.


A farmer once lived at a farm.

He was really tired of the cranes and geese that came to his field to steal the seeds he had sown.

One day, he decided to put up a trap, a net, so that he could catch the cranes and geese.

The next morning, he woke up and heard a bird saying "It's a trap! AAhh!!"

He came out to check his trap, and there was one crane and two geese.

The farmer then took the birds into his house and killed them with his axe.

The next day, when he came out to check the trap, he saw that a stork had accidently been caught in the trap.

The stork said to the farmer that he was not going to steal the seeds. The farmer replied saying that the stork must suffer the same fate as the other birds, as the stork has been caught togheter with the other thieves.

The stork told him that associating with bad companions will lead to bad consequences.

End of story!

Some pics of the MOC:

The whole diorama.

Some cliffs and a beach at the water. I don't think it's common that farms are located near the water, but I added this as I didn't want to keep the build to plain and boring.

Close up on the house.

One of the sides of the house.

The top of the diorama.

A windmill thingy.

The figures/animals in the build. From left to right: The farmer, the crane, the stork, the geese (2x) and the horse.

The brickbuilt animals turned out quite nice, they are not in minifigure scale though. My favorite is the stork, which actually took me a few hours to build!

The room (With curtains) and the brickbuilt net, as I don't have any of those net pieces.



Thanks for viewing! I'm not sure if I'll win the whole contest, but I don't care about winning anyway. I am very happy that I've managed to get to the final and that I now know that I won't leave the contest with empty hands.

I've had a lot of fun in this contest, I've made some of my best MOCs during the competition, and it really helped me to improve my building skills. Thanks to Hans for creating this contest, the judges for judging my entries and getting me this far, all the people who liked my entries and the opponents who didn't post their entries and helped me get even more far in the contest.

This'll be my last creation for a while. I want to take a break from building after this contest. I'll also be busy in the next weeks; I'll be gone on Christmas eve and during New Year I'll be on a 9 day vacation. 90% of my collection is also in one big unsorted mess, so I'll (Slowly!) be sorting it when I get back. Hopefully, I'll be able to post something again in late January.

Thank you for viewing my final entry, and I hope to see you all again in the MocAthalon...

I apologize for being so late to the party as the bustle of the holidays has consumed much of my time. Though the outcome is decided, I still have a vote to cast. First, let me congratulate you on your run to the finals and thank you for a spirited effort throughout the games, even when your opponent(s) failed to post. That being said, my vote also has to go to Raphael; his use of more advanced techniques was the deciding factor for me. Thanks again for competing and helping make the first (hopefully annual) MIT a success. Enjoy your consolation prize!~H

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J
Quoting E.K.O. When you mean "presentation", do you mean how he wrote his MOC or the photo quality? I'm not very happy with the photos in this, I was lazy when I was taking them. :P
I did not put too much weight on the writeup since there are variations to the stories. The pictures are definitely part of the presentation, not just the photo quality but also how the subject is captured. If I was to remove the writeup, will the pictures tell me a story? I thought RH did a better job on this.
Ah, thanks. I just wanted to know what you meant.

Quoting Stacy Sterling Congratulations on making it to the final round of the MIT. You did a very nice job capturing the details and different scenes from the story, you came in with a great entry for the final round. However your opponent's build had just a bit more in the overall build and complexity of the build, my vote goes to your opponent.
Well, I got second place in the MIT. It doesen't matter anyway! I'm very happy that I have made it this far! :D When I first joined, I thought I would lose early, but I was wrong. Congrats to Raphael for the victory!

I like your build, but Raphael's was a bit more detailed, so I'm going to have to vote for his creation. Good job though, EKO, you've done very well to make it to the final round!

This is a nice entry, but the level of detail that RH brought earned him my vote. However, you Sir, fought the good fight and you should be very proud to have made it to the final round. Congratulations and best of luck with the other judges!

Quoting Master Shifu Leo J I would like to congratulate both of you for being our finalists. Both MOCs are wonderfully made and stayed true to the theme. At this stage of the game, the build quality is pretty much top-notched. It comes down to the 'extras' each builder adds to their entry. In that nitpicky regard, RH edges you with the presentation and finesse. My vote goes to your opponent.

Nicely done, one thing though, why did the farmer take the birds inside ? ...to kill them with an axe... sounds bloody, I suggest doing that outside :P Anyway, good luck, from the very beginning of the MIT I was hoping you would win, you deserve it.

Quoting Caleb Z. Great job. But why would be bring the birds inside to kill them?
So that people wouldn't see if he kills them.
