Anything Built That Represents Tasmania ???

Post by Free Spirit on Tue 05 Apr 2011, 6:25 am

During my tenure within the local community of brick enthusiasts based here in my home state I have rarely seen anything that represents or resembles a building or landmark of something that looks familiar to me other than the massive creation of the Spirit of Tasmania.

As a Tasmanian brick enthusiast I think it would be nice to see a few more local creations making their way onto the website so I guess I might have to start work on one of my own small ideas and then work my way up to something bigger later on.....hmmm, where to start ???

The wrest piont casino.

Port Arthur?......lots of tan needed but I'm thinking about doing part of this historic site, beautiful!!

The Able Tasman's "The Heemskerck" and "The Zeehaen" for the Ship lovers/pirate fans..... another possible build of mine

The shot tower..... thought about this one but still not sure.

Cascade brewery.... Great building!

st Davids cathedral, Hobart

Penny Royal powder mill

All of the above would be great Tassie Mocs with plenty of ref pics and most of them are still in the same or reconditioned state as they were when they were built some almost 200 years ago.

I have this book called 'Australia's Heritage Sketchbook' and found an illustration of a church (called 'the chapel') in Brickendon.

I saw the illustration and loved it (so did what us Lego people do, I built it)

I built this a long time ago, and there are things I would do differently if I built it again. But it is a Tasmanian building (but not a landmark, or anything really identifying or representative of Tasmania).

Just wanted to let you know that I have also seen a handful of Tasmanian Trains built by the same person who built the Spirit of Tasmania !!!

Apart from that I should make my way into my local Toyworld and have a chat with the staff to see whether anybody has entered a building and/or landmark of our state in their photo competition.

You just never know I might find lots more ideas which have been created that represent our great state of Tasmania legohappy

Some really good ideas in this thread. I wonder what I could build out of Technic to cover this theme?
