M.O. Round 2: Justin M vs John 55555
After seeing my given category I automatically knew what I wanted to do. For quite some time Iíve been interested in doing a book type build, but with something inside. This was definitely a real challenge. Building in micro-scale is something I donít do often, and with the inside of the book only being roughly three studs high, it was something that didnít come easy.
About this creation

Museum exhibit.
Build a museum exhibit based on a real-life example.
Maybe a dinosaur skeleton and museum lobby, a life-size replica of a Bronze Age sword or a Roman mosaic. Anything that would actually BE in a museum.


My impressive opponent John 55555.

Fourth wall:

Wow. Two days of building and I'm happy to even be posting this. Life has been hectic, hectic enough to almost count myself out. But nonetheless I present to you my entry with great satisfaction. Just the thought of being able to enter and be in Round 2 is enough to put a smile on my face. Best of luck John, I can see it'll be a tough match, but something fun and exciting, something I'll definitely remember.
A big thank you to the wonderful judges for all your hard work. You guys make this the most chaotic, stressful time of the year. Pushing everyone's building skill's and speed to the max! God bless y'all.
Have a great day!
Signed,
-Justin M

Beautiful build with masterful skill! Clever and fun but I think that John's was more suited for a "museum". This, however, is still fantastic. Great work!

Thanks, Justin, and well played! I'll try and make the best of my opportunity to keep fighting!

While this is an amazing entry I have to agree that John's build fit into the category better, he has my vote as well. But a very cool build nonetheless and best of luck in the future!

First let me say that this build is just REALLY cool! I love the concept behind it! However, your opponent's build was also very well done and I think it fit the category better. He got my vote. Thanks! ~ Chris.

While this is a fun build, I think John's entry just nudged yours out. My vote goes to him, but good show Justin and best of luck with your other judges!

Great idea, although not sure it's a museum exibit, but clever and well constructed nonetheless. Could you have made space in the cover to accomodate the mast and sail of the ship so it closed fully? Good job, and good luck to you!

Awesome micro! I love how it gets smaller and smaller the closer to get to the castle. I like the use of the book for the hut there :D

This is a pretty good book, especially given that it has magical powers - somehow that five-stud-tall ship fits into a three-stud-high space! Astounding!

Thanks everyone. I appreciate the kind feedback!
Quoting Anamir Daughter of Denethor Amazing! But to be honest, I don't see how this fits into the museum.
The book is supposed to be portraying history long ago, which in this case, is castle. =)

When I saw the first picture I was like this is pretty cool but I was kind disappointed. Then I saw what was inside and was like this is awesome!!! Good luck with the judges!
