Still not finished. This is just a preview, so don't mind the red pieces and all that.

Folder, when public.

I could show the whole thing, but I guess it would take the fun out of it.

WOW! That's amazing! You have too many 1x1 round bricks. :shock:

Great detail and architecture, I'll tell you that much.

Can't wait to see it finished!

Wow...that is very impressive. You have captured the feel of an old cathedral quite well. Keep up the good work!

Spectacular, great idea for the decorative arches. I'm glad you didn't show any more. I want to see the completed project! How huge will it be? I love the receding arches. Keep it up.

The towers will be over 1.15 meters in height.

Hey,

These doors are outstanding! I'm intrigued by the little peek we get inside and am looking forward to the full creation. I assume there's flex tubing running through those 1x1 rounds?

I have had more time to be able to really look at the detail you have put into this. I love the modified tile clips as 'spines'. I also really like the plates inbetween some of the round bricks making up the walls under the arches.
The one critisism I have is how the bottom statue is mounted. I don't like how he is standing on an inverted slope. I think it would look better if there were bricks up to him from the floor. But I could be wrong. Overall great job, I can't wait for the completed project!

That´s simply beautiful... for some reason it reminds me of the cathedral of Toledo with the three doors. Have you seen it?

Holy Cow!
You got the beggining of what will probably be one amazing cathedral!

Good work, I can't wait to see it finished!

Oh, didn´t know that... Well, I don´t know much about architecture...

Can´t wait to see the finished version of this.
