Minas Tirith (Large Scale)
UPDATE: 4-7-11. I found a new pic! This was my first attempt at creating the legendary city from Lord of the Rings. When I started at the base, I didn't think how large it was going to be. As I progressed, it kept getting exponentially huge and I soon realized that I never designed the support sub-structure to hold that kind of weight. So shortly after taking these pics, it collapsed. At the time of collapse, it used almost 6000 pieces most of which were 2x4's and 1x4's, stood ~3ft tall at the top of the tower and ~4ft in diameter at the outer wall. I have since built a smaller scale version.
About this creation



The front gate







A slightly older pic before the city and the top were completed






A closer view of the city






This shows the more completed city and fortress...with my slight upgrades of course. A gigantic trebuchet capable of obliterating even the largest of foes and large torches to light up the city at night.
