Hullo one and all

After sitting around the house for months gathering dust :) I have got round to taking some photos of my newer mocs. Here are the pictures of my Tannery.

Thanks for looking and let me know what you think

That's pretty cool. It's nice to see more real world inspired non-military castle mocs.

That is nice! I especially like how compact it is considering the detail... The ladder on the far side is an easy touch but really 'grounds' the model superbly!

On the frontpage as well! (Someday I will achieve this!)

God Bless,

That's a nice tannery. Nice in respect of the building and the detail and such. I'm glad, though, we don't have to smell the odour.....

 This is just the sort of nonsense up with which I will not put.

Excellent work! My favorite feature has to be those puddles in the front. The SNOTed logs upstairs are great, too.

I really liked this MOC. My favorite part was the slatted wooden upper stories, and the pits, both covered and uncovered... too bad the water wheel wasnt actually in the water :D (just kidding - the wheel was done nicely)
The tanner was such an important part of the middle ages, I am surprised it took so long for anyone to do one. Great job, excellent details, and fantastic subject matter.

Are you also reminded of Asterix and the Soothsayer, perchance? :D

Meanwhile, this a great MOC, and it's nice to see another aspect medieval life turned into LEGO form.

Now, I'd like to see a Dark Forestman with a studded, leather torso walking away with his freshly-made armour...

This is really cool, and the details, as mentioned, are nice - they make it very interesting.

Also, it's a great replica of the original model - something worth mentioning as well!

Very nice. Very nice indeed.

But two small bits of constructive criticism....

1) Could the pools have been a bit wider? given the size of a horse/cow in relation to the minifig, they seem a wee bit narrow.

2) After a hide goes through its initial dip, it has to be hung over something and have the hair/fat scraped off the skin. You could use a few saw-horse type things for that, for detail.

Still, this is far beyond my meager abilities, so BRAVO!!

Is that Dooku I see over to the right?

Nice, 10/10. This is very well made for it's size, and the people and the setting altogether just adds a bonus. Nice roof, aswell. I'm a fan of rooves, for some unknown reason.

10/10, simple and nice.

Here's a classic MOC that's certainly worth a second look. Leather ranks right up there with beef and milk as gifts from our friends the cows.
