    Sweet build, much to love.

    It took me a little bit to realize how small it was. It looks much bigger than it really is.

    Great work.

    It's 48x32 studs. That was my goal, so I'm glad someone finally pointed that out. Thanks.

    Criminy, that's amazing! You have somehow managed to capture Gothic architecture well in a Micro creation. I am flabbergasted.

    I ditto Grandpappy, this looked MUCH bigger in the thumbnail. Great effect.

    I've always wanted to do a big, detailed Notre Dame. If I ever get around to it, I'll probably use this scale now, though.

    I love the stained glass in the transept windows. That's a key feature of the cathedral. Don't recall stained glass being in the bell towers though (is that what that is?).

    I need one.

    Really nice job! Some microscopic mistakes but I won't play the history freak ;P Btw, one question, which age did you tried to represent it in?

    It looks awesome at this scale. you've got a very clean build on the cathedral. I'm not sure about the landscaping, though.

    It actually looks more to me like an awesome futuristic building that an awesome Gothic building.

    Still awesome though.

    BlueBard: I tried to represent it in the modern period as it would look today. You can see some pictures that I used to build the model on my MOCpages' page.

    Ok, just wondering ;P But if you want my advice in this case I would eliminate all that green wilderness around (specially in the left side where there's actually a street just as in the other side). There are trees behind the cathedral, but not a jungle. I would also move the statue at the entrance to the left (in the case you tried to represent the statue of Charlemagne) and add the little building ( sorry,I don't exactly remember what it is) that's in the park in the left side.

    Sorry for the long text, but is a cathedral I really love and I have visited it so many times that I felt a bit weird looking your model :I

    This is the notre Dame influenced by your Scorpion MOC style. That is a nice signature. Thumbs up.

    Thank you for the great advice. I've never been to the structure myself, so I'm glad I'm hearing this from someone who has been there in person. I really appreciate what you had to say. I'm going to save you the trouble of reading through my mindless excuses about why I didn't make it more accurate. I will say that I was very pressed for time (entered it in a contest) and that I wanted to get the basic shape down. All of the details and vegetation are random. Had I had no time limit, I would have attempted those ideas, but it just wasn't possible. Thank you for your input. -Dylan
