Matsumoto Castle

Newer Older

Hello all,

Even in the business of the MOCAthalon, I have been working very industriously on completing this project for the Eurobricks Architecture contest. Finding the right model was quite difficult, but I finally found one that I really liked. Thank you Sean for helping me find the idea! :D

The contest is to build a microscale architectural structure or landmark. After many different ideas, I settled on this.
More information on the building can be found here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matsumoto_Castle

Nothing too incredible here. Still, I am really happy with it.

EDIT: Through some lapse of reason on somebody's part, I ended up winning the Master Builder title for the Classic Castle Contest this year! Many thanks to all of you for your encouragement and support.

Grace and Peace,

    Hmm. Very nice. I especially like the sloping on the roof. However there are some gaps in it. The trees are brilliant.
    Score: Just barely scraping up a 5.

    If only Lego made corner cheese slopes. Then this would be perfection.
