1000steine.de meeting in Frechen January 8, 9

Hi all,

It looks like the meeting of German AFOLs in Frechen was really great for castle fans.

Lots of great t r e e designs (click each letter).

Jojo was there, so maybe he could give us a report on this meeting? Or were any other CC.com members there?

Here are some galleries (click each word).

I just finished looking at the galaries. That is some amazing work! The water in this pic just blows my mind! This is easily the best rendition of water I've ever seen. It actually seems to get deeper in the middle of the pond. From what I can see, there are at least 3 shades of blue under those tiles. The depth of talent in Germany is just incredible!

Oh, and Jojo, maybe you could shed some light on this one:

What is this building? Is it based on a real structure, or is it something else? Again, this is all so fantastic!

Later.

Yes this is based on a real building. I hate it when I can not remember the building's name :? It has a church on the lower level and a governmental center/throne room on the upper level with a balcony. I also can not remember where this one is located but I am sure one of the European members will fill us in with the details.

Hello!


The garden with the great pond and the framework houses was built by Bruno 'Legocastle' Kurth.

The Castle was built by Marcel 'Santaclaus' [forgot his surname, sorry.]

The big medieval hoses were built by Andreas Böker (abhf).

Petra was built by Stefan 'Rat' Vorst.

The large framework-houses-complex with the big tree in the center was built by Christian Trezcoks.

This is Albirona's new home. Eventually the story will follow.
The original, Santa Maria del Naranco, stands near Oviedo in Spain and looks like this (I photographed the pic from a book because I did'n t find an adequate pic somewhere on the internet (In fact there are dozens of pics with this building but I wanted exactly this one.)):

It's a pre-romanesque building from the 9th century that served as a palace hall first, later as a church, and now is a UNESCO world heritage.

Hey Jojo,

I really like your rendition of Santa Maria del Naranco. Any idea when you'll post full photographs?

Also, can you tell us anything about this creation? It looks as if it's the Dead Marshes from Lord of the Rings. Do you know who the builder is and if they have a gallery or website?

Are the glowing lights part of the same MOC?

Thanks,
Bruce

The Dead Marshes are exactly what this is. It was built by 14-year-old Diana, the daughter of Stefan Vorst (builder of this and this). Stefan only illuminated the flames and the heads of the dead (Snape heads). The dead are cleverly placed under a layer of transparent bricks or panels to get the effect of water over them. No LEGO was harmed by illuminating the minifig heads because the wires are thin enough to pass through the space between the head and the neck of the torso.
