Swiss Family Robinson
About this creation
2013 MOCAthalon
Team: Clutch Builders
Category: "Illustration"

Hey all,
I knew when I saw this category that I simply HAD to build in it. I am a huge bibliophile, so it was a relatively easy decision to decide on the famous Swiss Family Robinson tree house as my scene.

This was a tremendously difficult and tedious build, but I am pleased with the end result. The structure of the tree was ridiculously hard to deal with because it was so weak and flimsy, and it completely broke more than once.

This is my whimsical and fantastical interpretation of the all-time greatest tree house in the world.
Enjoy!
SOLI DEO GLORIA!

Woah that is awesome!! I definately wouldn't mind living there! I just have one question; WHERE DID YOU GET ALL THOSE LEAVES?!?!? I mean you could build the whole Ewok village from Return of the Jedi! Actually if you are familliar with Star Wars I would Really like to see an ewok village that you made! That would be epic! Well I love the model!!

You can tell by just looking at it that it was a nightmare to build. I've done a few recent flimsy builds - frustrate me to the core, then I kick myself for doing it to myself haha! 5 points. ~Thoy

I love it - I've always been a huge fan of survival stories. You really went all-out with the foliage and making the trees look organic! There's so much to visually explore here with all the little details and subtle touches you put into this MOC! 5/5, good sir!

I am obviously not the first to be inclined to notice this because of the former Disneyland attraction of the same name! However that is besides the point, this is a great tree MOC, full of little details and clean builds. Best of luck in the MOCAthalon!

Oh, this is amazing! I could stare at this build all day, but ten minutes is going to have to suffice :/ It's so rich with details and a techniques! The tree's construction is so well done and natural looking! Usually when I see a complamentive (?) sentence written entirely in caps I look down upon it as immature, but I can't contain myself in this case. THIS IS FLIPPING BEAUTIFUL!!!

Excellently done (love photo-shop)! A bit of trivia for you...The SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON used to be a "c" ticket in DISNEYLAND and a great way parents could exercise their kids to get them tired enough so they could stop and eat lunch! It was incredible! DISNEYWORLDS" version was "Tom Sawyer's Island"! (also a "c" ticket! (Note in the old day you purchased a "ticket book" which included: "A", "B","C","D" and "E" tickets each ride or attraction required a ticket to get in the highly demanded rides were the "A" Tickets and the least (or rides or attractions that weren't expensive to make) popular were "E" tickets! this brought back memories!
