About this creation
I must say, this is one of the most difficult building to build...

Firstly, there is the godforsaken twisting...Arghh...Each 'pole' of each section had to be connected, but as you can see *squint* that was pretty impossible given that the software wasn't all cooperative...

Next comes the 'slimming' of the building, with its 'waist' and hour-glassy shape. As the structure is oval, its was kinda hard to reduce the size of ovals by one stud width on all sides, hence the unsightly curbs on the sides.

Besides the oval issue, here comes the odd-numbering problem! Each oval turned out to be an odd-numbered size (e.g. 17 stud long X 15 stud wide)...ARGHH! And no matter how we change and recalculate, we always ended up with oddies...hmph. Actually that wasn't the main obstacle of the construction. The real problem lies with the turning shaft. It had to be exactly in the middle of each oval so that it can turn about the centre and had to be specially designed.

As with the Infinity Tower, the entire structure is built on, locked and loaded and totally buildable for real (pretty pricey). I'd say this is one not so perfect moc...please understand haha...xD

Pardon the minute size of the pics...it wasn' possible to get bigger shots as the structure is very tall (approx. 250 cm or 8.3 ft) even in LDD...

Here are some shots of the building...enjoy..xD!

This has just GOT to be one of the most Lego-unfriendly shaped buildings I have EVER seen somebody build!!! SUPERB MOC Joe, as usual with you!
