Hello, friends on mocpages! What I have today is a model that I'm very proud of, it took about two weeks of on-and-off building to complete. Hope you all enjoy it and please remember to rate, comment, and enjoy! :)
About this creation
As said before, this model took about two whole weeks of building to get finished! For me that is very long, normally a build this size would take about a week. Anyway, I think it paid off, the finale build is very nice and detailed IMO. :D
The whole build was inspired by this tutorial by Isaac and John Snyder, I tried to build the whole model in their style.
P.S. I may be a bit inactive in the next few weeks because I'm going to a photography camp.
A close up photo of the entry-way.
Figless photo of the entry way. here you can see the door-way without the knight clogging up the picture. I'm really proud of how the path turned out.
The side. I really like how the snow (both snotted and not) turned out. I also really like the tree.
Oh, yeah! Bet you didn't see that coming, yes I was even able to sneak in one of John's and Isaac's signature lilac coloured trees into my model, but with my own special adjustments.
Without the lilac tree. Now you can see the other tree better. Edit: I just realized that you can see over my white background in this photo. :P
Without any trees. Now you can see the castle wall.
The interior. Here's the interior of the building. Not much, but it does the job.
Figless interior. The candle stand was, yet again, inspired by a candle stand made by John, which can be seen here.
The top. I really like how the snow on top of here turned out. :)
Figless top. Not much different from the photo above, just without the fig.
The figs. In the model you couldn't really see the figs so here you go.
In case anybody was wondering, here's what the knight looks like without his hemet on.
I thought I was first one to think of wrapping a skirt around the neck peg on the torso of a minifig, but it looks like I wasn't the only one to think of it. (You can see it in the ninth photo)
Here's how the door was made, I don't think anyone has done it like this before. The only downside is that it can't open.
There was some gaps in the snotted snow but I was able to fill them by using some headlight bricks. (seen above)
The bottom. Not very pretty but it uses a technique that I am very proud of. I have taken to calling it "The Core". It allows for bricks to attached on all sides while still allowing for plates to attached on the top. I would show you how it works but I can't be take it apart because it would take too long to re-assemble. You could probably figure it out by looking at it and filling the gaps.
And… that is it! I hope you all enjoyed. :-D
Quoting Hadden Kurtz
Awesome job! One question, what is your technique for the tree?
The main tree is made from Travis Bricks and Ix4 or 1x6 plates. The joint is made from 1x1 plates with vertical clips and a black t-bar, then it was covered by tiles and the like. Hope this helps
