"Shine on Little Lighthouse, Shine on" (Main)



The lighthouse keeper greets a small boat delivering supplies as they come ashore to the small island that is home to a watch tower for vessels lost at sea.


My entry for JRC3. This thing took forever to build. There's a gear on the back that actually allows the LED in the lighthouse to turn.

    Beautiful Walter, the lighthouse is very successful, sober but very charming. I like the part with the rocks and vegetation, the gradient and the colors of the beach with seaweed and finally, as usual, the water, but that everyone already told you :) !

    I appreciate all the kind comments. Thanks everyone!

    Carson Hart I really like using trans clear bricks because of the level of depth they achieve. Adding various colors beneath the pieces can be very fun. I think the first person I saw that inspired me to do it was Eggy Pop.

    Jake RF Thanks! It seems my building style has stemmed from the PoTC theme as far as these scenes go. Can't wait to see your entry though. Best of luck in the contest.

    Ben Unleashed! Thanks, and cool blog.

    Fantastic! Very clean MOC and presentation, and wonderful and comedic details. The play functions are very clever and well-integrated. All-around a superb piece of LEGO modeling.
