Thanks! I'm really glad there's so many "every element" comments - When building I try to make every piece count. I'm glad you like it so much - It was definitely challenging & fun to build.

I hope to get proper pictures later today.

Sorry to reply to my own post but it's better than a new thread -

I've finally got it all uploaded and ready to be officially unveiled, even though you've all already seen it in detail. There's three ways to view them, depending on which flavour you prefer:

Brickshelf
MOCpages
Flickr


Thanks for looking again, and let me know what you think, now that you can see it up close and personal!

-John L.


Thanks for the pic, Mike! :wink:

I do see it now! This still looks great and I love the loads of detials you included. The shark is still as funny as ever (I mean worng...wrong as ever...ahem...)

The princess inside is awsome, and I just noticed your technique in the fountain (with the water overflowing from the upper pools to the lower pool!

And, again, those rounded walls are spectacular. so great job again, thanks for the pics!

Exactly! Great job, Jon! I like how much detail you packed into this MOC!

Oh No! Please, No! Don't let the BF fall, Jon! Catch him! :lol:

I know I have already posted but these pics are way better than the earlier ones :D

I love the way you have used bricks instead of tiles for the water. You have also pulled off using the old & new brown on different parts of the castle so well. Wow. I could honestly go on for ages. OK one more comment ;) I also like how you have tiled every man-made floor on the MOC.

Incredible work! Awe-some

They aren't tile floors. Well the bridge has a tiled floor, but every single other floor is SNOT. And I know for a fact there is no new brown in it. J1A3L5 is anti-new brown and the bleys. He has rust color around the river.

For me, this castle has been completely mindblowing as I watched every step as it was built. The details, the different techniques, it is all so very interesting and so completely awesome. There is too much to mention that I like.

Oh! my bad! I thought that fin was his splash from kicking in the water, but it's a shark! (If you mentioned that, sorry I missed it :oops: )

Now for the delayed reaction.

Ha ha! That's awsome, the guy being chased by a shark.

Again, sorry for the slow-understanding.

Cool - must be the lighting - as the railing in this shot & this shot looks like new brown, especailly compared to this shot.

Or it might just be me, I've been working with too much brown lately (on my Viking Hall ;))

These new pix just remind me of how great this looked in person a few weeks ago. This is something you should be proud of John.

I didn't think it was blood, I thought it was something else....ha ha ha. If you not sure what I am talking about, think ..."gong farmer".

Hey John. I just thought of a question I had about this MOC. I was wondering if you could show/tell us how you made those awsome trees?

Thanks in advance!

Fantastic work!

Thanks all! First off, there are no new colour tones used in the model. For some reason, my photography of old brown always gives it a tinge that looks similar to new brown.

Thanks Richard - I hope we can meet up again in the future!

Basically they are made with cubes of SNOT bricks forming a 2x2x2 cube with studs in all directions, and the various pieces tacked on and sculpted to shape. I hope to make different sizes sometime. I believe each tree used 16 SNOT bricks. I hope that made sense to you; I could always send you a picture or two.

Thanks John!

I think I can figure it out from here. If I end up with trees a little different that's just fine!
