Estuary Stronghold: Build Journal #5
About this creation
April 26th. I'm a weekend early on posting this month. I'm at a good stopping point though as the walls have been completed so what the heck.



My new lego room is terrible for taking pictures. I'm going to have to figure out how to improve the lighting pretty soon.



It will likely take 2 more months to complete, although its starting to feel like the home stretch.



The walls were built in a modular design. This makes them easy to take off to change or repair.



Next up is the buildings. I've got some framing buildings in there right now trying to size things out. I didn't leave as much room as I should have for inside the walls. Not sure exactly how that happened, but some of the buildings may end up being smaller than they should.






See you next time.

A seriously epic build. The water requires some closer examination. As does the transition to the sand. Lee.

Well hmm... You mentioned the buildings, which I haven't start yet!! I've only known one Jessie before and it was a really strong 6'2 guy, so I don't know if that qualifies. Wait! i did know a girl named Jeesie also so crap. hmm, well we always called the guy jessie "the beast" so maybe you should go with that.

Oh, I forgot to mention that REALLY like the different shades of water and sand. And, concerning the conversation at hand...my name was Jesse but some dude thought I was a girl so I went with my first and middle initials. Yeah. I know.

Quoting Phong Chang If I went by my dad's last name, I'd be Phong Snider, because he's white, but instead, I went by my mom's which is Chang. .
My wife's last name is Chan, although I'm not going to let my kids use her name!
  April 28, 2009
Yes it is. Here's where my name came from. 15 years ago, I was born, and my parents decided to name me Phong. If I went by my dad's last name, I'd be Phong Snider, because he's white, but instead, I went by my mom's which is Chang. My parents aren't seperated, but for some reason, I go by this at school, here, and everywhere else. Phong Chang is the name I write on my schoolwork too. THE END.

Quoting Phong Chang PS: Where'd the name "Professor Eggplant" come from?
That one is actually explainable. When I first started it was Bryan H, and I thought that was boring so I wanted to come up with a alias. My wife has a wall hanging thing that says eggplant right outside my lego room. This reminded me of the Eggplant Wizard from Kid Icarus (the 80s nintendo game). So I was that for awhile and Phipson started calling me Prof Eggplant, which someone later abbreviated as Eggy. Quite the story eh?

The plant growth on the rocks, not to mention the rocks themselves are so realistic! And you have bad lighting? Compared to my situation, you should feel lucky!

One of your greatest works! I look forward to see the estuary complete! It's looking really nice and I like the way how you build your walls. Continue the excellent work, professor.

Quoting Sebeus I So what's with the main picture ? is it the prototype ?
The main photos on all of these were from the original Estaury Stronghold built by Eric Brok in 2000 (9 years ago) http://www.ericbrok.com

Beautiful work, Prof! This is the kind of scale that I love. It allows for countless points of interest and all kinds of details... and you've certainly got that going on. I've had a ball watching the progress, but I can imagine you're getting pretty anxious to reach the finish line by now. Anyway, looks fantastic - the final post should be amazing!

Had a feeling I'd see another one today. I know the feeling when you're building an outer structure and BAM! Too small! Either way, it's looking good. Good day

WOW!!! Brian, that is absolutely epic! I love everything from the texture on the wall, the tree climbing up the side, the small guard towers, the layered yet steep rocks, the caves, the stairs, the rocks sloping down to the stairs, the buildings within...everything. It blows my mind to think that it's not even done.

your chugging along quite nicely...We look forward to the final results.

I spend 4 hours putting together a couple of walls that may or may not meet the CC building standard, then I see this and realize I have so far to go. It's looking terrific, and I've enjoyed your building journals as well. Can't wait to see the finished product!

I'm starting to see more of the differences from the original now. Try one of those halogen shop lights. They pump out a lot of light for a low cost. Hot though. see ya. garth
