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.
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.
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?
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!
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.
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!
When I look at this and think that you're not done yet... Wow! I'm just amazed that this this is actually going to get cooler than it already is! Thanks for the update, looking forward to the next one! ~ Chris.
Wowzers! I just said wowzers!
Great job Professor! Just keep getting better and better! Can't wait to see May's edition!
