This is a great MOC! I have to break it down and commet on each thing indevidually.

The House: Superb! The details are amazing. I love the turntable-decorations and the roof is done really well. The stonework along the bottom is well done, not to mention realistic. The chimney is very nice as well. The lions and stairs by the door are really nice.

The Feilds: Nice. The scarecrow is...well...scary! That robe works very nicely. The crops are very nice, and the fence is super.

The Pond: Good work. I like the catails, and the landscaping is nice. The bench just completes it.

Thanks for sharing!

Wow. Great job! Love the fence and the scarecrow the best.
My only complaint is that the swan's neck to body ratio is off. The body needs to be slightly bigger.
Other then that, it looks excellent!

I haven’t waited such a success of this MOC, thanks for all your comments :wink:

No, there is no interior yet, maybe after the show, I will make some.

Yes, for the neck will be better this part, but I have it only in black and brown.

This MOC is very nice ! :D

Some things I especially like about it are the roof construction, which is rather interesting, the way you did the field, and the little details such as the animals. (that's a great swan design; it looks somewhat familiar :wink: ;nice usage of that technic piece !)

The only thing I'm not so fond of, is the fence; it looks somewhat futuristic for the medieval setting.

Overall, this MOC really "lives". Great job !

The fence is actually my favorite part of this moc. It looks like a woven twig/stick fence. Perhaps if it was all the same color, tan or grey, it would look better.

Beautiful work, I think my favourite part is the roof. But the whole house in itself is excellent, I love the use of the turntableplates (if that´s what they are?) in this pic. The chickens are very well done as well, don´t think I´ve seen that before.. And the fence as others have pointed out is really clever, I might have to borrow that idea if I ever get that many droid arms ;)

On a completely different note; I saw on the front page that you were female but I always thought Marian was a male name in the Slovachia...? OK, embarassing question but if you don´t ask you will never get an answer... :roll:

Um, that was my fault. Marian is a guy. :oops: I've sent Ben a corrected version of the write-up to put on the front page.

You mind not bringing up really really old topics like this.

?? Are you asking people not to bring up 3 month old topics? I wouldn't call it "really really old." We have seen some 3 year topics lately. I'm not carrying anyone's water here, this post just seems unnecessarily short and curt, borderline rude for CC.C. Not to mention that it doesn't add to the discussion in the least.
