The pictures took a while to load, but it was definitely worth the wait. This is really impressive, the details and the amount of time you spent on this is mind blowing. Simply Amazing!

Wow, thats extremely impressive. You've managed to capture the Gothic details very well, especially on the exterior. The signature of Gothic architecture is an emphisis on the vertical and you definatly captured that here. I'm pretty sure that you have basically every part and detail of a gothic structure here. I can tell you know quite a bit about gothic architecture. I'm guessing you were goinng for a Rayonnant Gothic style here? circa 1230-1250 CE. German I'd say by the tracery towers. :D (though the tracery tower influence did spread to the Iberian area- Barcelona Cathedral has one- but its Facade and over-all layout is quite a bit different from what you have going on here).

From what I've seen you have some pretty creative part usuage going on which is cool. Its also very impressive that you managed to make every window stained glass. In the cathedral I built I had to leave my windows open ><.

I think my favorite part here is the tracery towers. very good use of those technic wheels.

Your level of devotion to this project is incredible. The finished product is a testiment to your hard work. This is one of the most detailed MOCs I have seen. There are so many incredible architectural elements... I really can't pick specifics to mention. I will be borrowing many of the methods included to dress up my creations in the future.

I wish to thank you for making me smile widely today. This will inpire me forever in the future to make beautiful artwork out of Lego. You are a true master.

That is absolutely incredible. Any idea how much it weighs or how many elements you used?

The stained glass windows are my favorite part. Thanks for sharing!

I'm completely in awe! For me, this is my favorite Castle MOC this year! It's absolutely stunning. Thank you for sharing such a wonderful accomplishment.

I was wondering, are you planning to landscape the base around the cathedral? Either way, this is a great work. Congrats!
