About this creation

This creation is not a copy of any existing oil rig, but it contains (almost) all the elements as the real one. I have been working on it for a year. The height of the model is 160 cm, the depth and width is 105 cm and it weights around 100 kg. It is not made out of the single piece but it is made out of 10 big and 10 smaller elements that are put together in one piece in 30 minutes.

An awesome build. The details are fantastic. Now if only they can build the real ones used in the Gulf of Mexico that well. I also like the last picture. Nice arrangement of CDs and DVDs.

Quoting Kris DeWitt I have 2 questions for you, one for each MOC. How many bricks for each approx.? And how many hours/days/months for each build approx.? Both of your builds are awesome.
Oil rig - 69.000 pcs, 15 months; Concert stage - 33.000 pcs, 10 months of work. Thank you for your comment.

Wowee, is this impressive. Yet another creation that blows my mind--there's so much to look at here it would take forever to soak it all in. Once again, you've outdone yourself on the size, too. Keep building, man; you're extremely talented.

Where did my jaw go?? Oh there it is. i really like that, eventhough its massive, you kept so many details, such as minifigs ETC. I really like the life-ship/boats. thats in the middle of the oil rig, (if it is lifeboats that is) Extremely well made, it looks alot like The oil rig they have in Legoland billund. 100000/5

Hey. First off I'd like to say that this rig is for the most part an accurate representation of a real version. The only things that aren't are the Derrick structure ( they are much larger, taller and thicker) and the accommodations are usually much larger ( the yellow building). The amount of people you have is fine, if anything add more as there are usually 130 to 170 people on a rig at any given time. The size, structures and details are all excellent however and I commend you on this project. I wanted to give honest feed back because I've worked offshore for years now and this is the most accurate version I've seen.

This was very fun to look at, with all the details. It captures the certain "look" of large manmade objects in the ocean very well. Of course the size is impressive, but the details are beautiful. Meanwhile my puny creations don't deserve to be online.

Quoting manthanboeing MAD Wow, this thing is enormus, ill have to make one next :P only 1 thing though, i dont think there are that many people on the rig at any 1 time, just sayin, But very good stuff this, you have given me inspiration to build one, very nice build
Of course that there are not that many people at the same time on the oil rig, but the pictures were made after the major repair and that is the reason why so many people were there at the given time :)

Beautiful oil platform. Nice detail fishermen on the lower deck. The pipes and system components are perfectly executed. Beautiful helicopter platform. The lifeboats are also very realistic. I think you are working on an oil platform in order to make these details.
 I like it 
  August 6, 2013
Still noticing more and more detail. I like the authentic lifeboats, hanging ready to deploy. I also spotted two halves of the Death Star. It would be great if you added your MOC to this group: http://mocpages.com/group.php/21377
  August 6, 2013
Wow! It's quite hard to get to grips with the size of this enormous model. Could you add some statistics about its size? Regardless of this, it's not just the size of of this model that is impressive, it's all of the interesting and fun details. I like the guys fishing on the lowest deck and the nice technique used to create the round heli-pad. The rest of the detail lools very authentic: the big crane, the boom for flaring off gas and all of the pipes and containers and tanks. An awe inspiring MOC!
