my 14,000 piece lego rendition of King Solomon's temple
About this creation
Not nearly as impressive as the 30,000 piece mon cal cruiser, but I still hope you like it.
This project took 13 months to complete(not counting the several weeks to get and decide to act on the inspiration), from the first step on the leocad till I placed the final roof piece on at 12:25 on March 3rd 2009. As for the total cost, I do not know the exact number (yet), but it exceeded $1000, and as for the piece count all I know is that it exceeded 14,000 LEGO pieces. The dimensions of the building is 20 inches wide, 38.5 inches long, and 14 inches tall.
I really like the MOC, the inspirational story, and everything about it. i showed it to the rest of my family and it blew them away. you're a real inspiration to me. keep building and i will check out any and all of your creations.
That is amazing. Your attention to detail in this is wonderful. I have read about the construction of this temple in the Bible, and I am impressed that you could do this. Keep up the wonderful work.
P.S. That ark would work in a Indiana Jones scene or two.
Very nice complete model of the Temple. I was really glad to see it was a MOC of Solomons Temple and not Herods Temple that so many confuse with the original temple.
I built a 1:40 scale temple as well that was presented at Brickfest several years ago. It has gone through a few structural changes as well and more historically accurate updates as well. I guess I should get some pics up on MOCpages of it and the progress.
I was in church this morning, and I found the perfect verse concerning CFOL: “If someone comes to your meeting and does not teach the truth about Christ, don’t invite him into your house or encourage him in any way. Anyone who encourages him becomes a partner in his evil work.”
-2 John 10
Unfortunately, due to the recent events in CFOL, my parents have decided that they don't want me to be a member of online groups, so I'm going to be leaving all groups. I'll still have an MOCpages account, and maybe join the occasional contest. As my final act as an Admin of CFOL, I want to make Thomas Lockwood the "Head of CFOL" to take my place, and I'm appointing Brady G. a permanent Admin to take Thomas' place.
Wow. The size got my attention right away, but what really kept me looking was the attention to detail in the interior. I liked how the doors had cherubim. Nice job with all the accuracy regarding numbers. I'll bet you will never read that portion of Scripture the same way!
