A family gathers around a large meal for an important purpose: To be thankful (and get to Round 2 of the MIT)
About this creation
Here is my entry for round 1 in the MIT. You can find my opponent's hompepage here. My category was Happy Holidays! The goal was to build a MOC depicting your favorite holiday.
I chose to do a classic thanksgiving dinner scene. It includes a father, grandpa, and grandma. I initially planned to add a mother and baby as well as more table, but was limited by my piece collection. I should also mention that I probably would not have completed this unless my brother had loaned me some bricks.
Here we have Grandma eating sweet potatoes...
And Grandpa consuming mashed potatoes.
I put some small pilgrim figurines on the mantlepiece along with a cornucopia of squash (and a frog).
A group shot of the characters. Please tell me your favorite.

The brick built figures are cool. But why didn't you just use regular minifigs? Don't get me wrong I like your build. Good luck with the judges.
Thank you, I thought making large-scale figures would be fun. I am glad I went with it for this model, but I have nothing against minifigures and will almost certainly use them frequently in the future
