Those flags are great, really innovative. It's brilliant how pieces designated for other purposes can function as something else in this scale.

I'm hoping to get a second entry done in the next few days. :)

I have an entry photographed, just not uploaded yet. And I have at least two more entries in mind. Now I just need to get home to where my brick is. :evil:

God bless.

Using hands for flags is not originally my idea, I forget who I got the idea from. :? I'm glad you like it.

Oh yes, I forgot to say Good Luck to all the contestants. :)

Here's my entry: "Castle on a Cloud"

The base is 2 32x16 baseplates that are hinged to open so you can see what's going on inside the Summoner's cottage.

Here's what it looks like open:

The Summoner's cottage has a laboratory, a foyer with armor and his owls and gear, a basement with a maiden in chains sharing a cell with some other unfortunate adventurers and critters, a bedchamber with a four-post bed under a mounted dragon's head, and an attic crawlspace with treasure.

I had intended to do a castle version of King Kong (Clancy of course being Kong), with a giant dragon, bat and dreagle (dragon+eagle), as the bi-planes, but I ran out of time to build the dragon and bat, so here's the dreagle (for the mini-movement category) -

Good luck to all and thank you for hosting!

Hello all - you don't know me and I've never shared any Lego creation with the world before, but here is my entry for the contest:

The rest of the pictures are here:

(or at least, they will be when the Brickshelf moderation process has approved them)

They're also on Flickr although there the pictures are larger than the contest pixel maximum:

Sorry I'm such a crummy photographer!

What is CC server time (zone)? As far as I can tell, everything on the forum depends on what time zone you select in your profile.
