Falcon's Tower

Post by ISC on Tue 11 Aug 2009, 4:46 am

I would like to share my latest and largest MOC to date with the Aussie and NZ people. First of all I must give credit to Noddy, who's creation inspired me so much from his entry in the CC Collosal Contest back in 2005, that I had to have a go at something similar. Here is a link to his beautiful creation which is soooo detailed. Hope you enjoy my take on an absolute masterpiece.



















Stash and I getting in a spot of fishing.






Sure to be more Brickshelf and Flickr

Cheers and comments and criticism are welcome

That looks beautiful!! I love the detail under the Lady's balcony, those supporting beams look great. Love the fishing sigfigs!! Awesome job on this.

Those minifigs who were fishing looked very much like little John and Robin Hood.

Man its good to have more talented builders to inspire me. I like the buttresses hiding the gaps on the curved walls. I've used a similar technique on a roundhouse roof, but hadn't thought of using it for vertical surfaces.

This has a very nice fantasy feel to me.

Hi all, just to let you know I reworked the roof into an eight-sided design which I am much happier with, added docks, smooth steps and some more sigfigs from EB that you may recognise too.









Always more to see here

Thanks, this took me a couple of months of 1-2 hours at a time when I had spare time from kids and work etc.
