LCC-Garheim, Dogsled race (Was to be in LC4)

This was built for the LC4... But I reread the rules and it's smaller than the minimum of 32 x 32 :(

So I'm going to enter it as a freebuild instead. :)

C&C Welcome!

Not so sure that I like those snowy trees, but that moose is amazing!

Since this is this not an official entry, I can comment. I did like the secret part usage for the bottom of the trees. :D

I have to agree, the sled is well done, I plan to use whips in mine too. The trees with snow on them are fun too.
You would rather be building right now.

I'm not a huge fan of the snow in the trees, particularly because there isn't any snow on the evergreen trees. Also, if it's the middle of winter, deciduous trees wouldn't have any leaves on them ;)

Well, he also used the seed part to achieve the tilt effect on those trees, so I had to give him a little bit of clearance, but I guess I agree with you AK.

Yeah I definitely think that the way the seed part was used is clever, but I would have made the trees bare instead of with leaves. Overall a really good MOC (though), especially the sled design. (I know from experience that sleds are REALLY tricky!)

Nice sled, I Love the use of the whips! It's a shame that it doesn't qualify for the LC4!

(gurusql)Thanks, man!
(Tastymuffins)Thanks! Don't feel bad, you're incredible castles are far better than my attempts! :D
(Eklund)Thanks, man, well, great minds think alike. :wink:
(AK_Brickster)Thanks, Argh! I completely forgot that trees don't have leaves in the winter. I lived most of my life in South Florida, and they don't lose leaves down there!
(Jesperallen)Thank you.
(Daken the Bladesmith)Thanks!
