Yes, this series still exists! And here's my new addition to it; Led Zeppelins first album ... cover.
About this creation

History


Led Zeppelin is the debut album by English rock band Led Zeppelin. It was recorded in October 1968 at Olympic Studios in London and released on Atlantic Records on 12 January 1969 in the United States and 31 March in the United Kingdom. Featuring integral contributions from each of the group's four musicians, the album established their fusion of blues and rock. It also attracted a large and devoted following to the band; Zeppelin's take on the emerging heavy metal sound endeared them to parts of the counterculture on both sides of the Atlantic.

Although the album first received negative reviews, it was commercially very successful, and critics have come to view it in a much more positive light. In 2003, the album was ranked No. 29 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time (it kept its rank when Rolling Stone updated the list in 2012). In 2004, the album was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame.

Artwork


Led Zeppelin's front cover, which was chosen by Page, features a black-and-white image of the burning Hindenburg airship. The image refers to the origin of the band's name itself: when Page, Beck and The Who's Keith Moon and John Entwistle were discussing the idea of forming a group, Moon joked, "It would probably go over like a lead balloon", and Entwistle allegedly replied, "...a lead zeppelin!"

I prefer your version to the original by quite a wide margin. Great band...always was brought when my friends and I would debate who the best rock ever was (a pointless enterprise, to be sure). I always said the Stone, some of friends said Zeppelin, and others the Beatles. Jimi Hendrix, of course, is not a band...

I love this one. Brilliant band and a brilliant recreation of an iconic image. Believe it or not I built a 3.2 metre Zeppelin (minifig scale) a few weeks ago which I hope to post photos soon.

Quoting Deus "Big D." Otiosus It would be really good to see the smoke built of LEGO as well.
Thanks for the critisism. I've tried to build the smoke & fire out of lego, but it didn't rendered well. If I would have done it with real bricks, then I would. Using LDD permits me to come closer to the original cover ;-)
