Forest safe house.

Post by TazManiac on Fri 06 May 2011, 6:36 am

Well not really a planned MOC, I started to build a castle yesterday and soon run out of bricks so this is the result..... need more bricks!
The build time was only 4 hours so it's not very polished and a bit slap happy in places but I'd love some feedback so I can try again with more bricks legowink
Sorry for the bad photos.
The crosses in the windows are borrowed from a flickr member that I was unable to find again. If someone knows who came up with it I'd like to know.

Thats great, I like how you used the leg parts inside the windows.
I have to ask, when you do that with the legs can you still use them on a minifig?
All these moc's you done lately are they staying built or are you tearing them apart after some time for parts?

Cheers Hemish.
Yeah the legs are fine afterwards as long as you take care removing/replacing them.
No they all get destroyed pretty quickly, as soon as I need a brick from them they get re-sorted back into boxes.
My ship is the only exception and is under going an update.
I've updated this build already and will take more pics soon.

Nice result for a quick build, my suggestion would be to try and differentiate between the stone and wood parts more. You've used similar techniques for both and it's not very convincing in the stone parts. I'd avoid using the rounded parts perhaps.

I think the leg window technique has been around for some time. Teunis Davies has used it on his WIP cathedral which is about three years old so far, and he copied it from someone else. I think it was used on Classic Castle long ago.

I really like this, the diversity of your pieces makes me somewhat jealous. I should not be browsing MOCs, I always end up hopping onto brick link and buying random pieces. :P
