After finishing the black fortress Barad-dûr I just had to build the White City as well. This LEGO version of Minas Tirith is inspired on the movie version, but it is a bit more colourful and cheerful. I like to think this is Minas Tirith in the time when Aragorn ruled as King Elessar.
A description in the book:
"In his time the City was made more fair than it had ever been, even in the days of its first glory; and it was filled with trees and with fountains, and its gates were wrought of mithril and steel, and its streets were paved with white marble; and the Folk of the Mountain laboured in it, and the Folk of the Wood rejoiced to come there; and all was healed and made good, and the houses were filled with men and women and the laughter of children, and no window was blind nor any courtyard empty; and after the ending of the Third Age of the world into the new age it preserved the memory and the glory of the years that were gone".
The model took about 6 months to design and build and contains about 11,500 parts.
