Eagles nest, where all freaks want to reach the top. Renaissance ghost house build on a giant rock.4.19ft high (128cm ), 15000 pieces
About this creation
This house / structure is build 2 large parts. First there is the rock, with on top of it the ghost house (that I called the petit palais- the small palace).
Having bought some modular houses, I thought I'd give it a try myself. So I started building with the Lego Digital Designer. What has begun as a try-out soon ended up with a highly detailled corner house with over more than 5000 pieces. My computer at that time had lots of problems creating the building instructions... The building does not exist, I created it with some influence of italian renaissance achitecture... and some fantasy.
I decided to "put" in on a rock...That is not really a rock, but those of you who are familiar with some other lego sites may recognise the first 70 layers of the Stanford Angel statue (bringer of light). I'll have anoter 73 layers more to go to finish the statue... Plenty of time beyond the final zone.
The rock is build with some 9000 pieces. I found it usefull to reinforce the inside structure, so that took almost 2800 additional parts. Also the fact that I used 2300 jumpers instead of simple bricks makes the amount of parts so high. The result is that the statue looks more smooth. (pictures of the finished sculpture will be added somewhere this year).
I have put some minifigs (the freaks who want to reach the top, to be the greatest, and then somewhere along the way madness comes along) so you can have an idea of the size. For those who like facts and figures; its 4.19feet high (128cm), weight : 39.68 pounds (18kg) and i've put some 15000 parts in it.
The shape of the rock and the mansion are amazing :)

Is it me, or does it look like your Droid Control Ship was destroyed and built back up to this? HAHA! Very well built. My fav part of the MOC is the house on the top. I <3(heart) Architecture! And you mastered this quite nicely! And ahh, I see you added the measurements in this MOC! ha just kidding! ;) Put more MOCs up like this and you will deffiantly get into my favorite builders list! -Pedro

This is incredible. By far one of the best lego creations ever.
It's all utterly stunning and completely amazing to my eyes, but my favorite part (besides the fantastic shape of the lot) is the black statue perched at the precipice nearer the front. You really did fabulous job here!
Regardless of your picture quality, this is absolutely brilliant. This is something that is very rear and unique that it is hardly ever seen. You did a really good job pulling the whole thing off! -Dylan
Cool and creative concept, but I don't think the photos do it justice. Right now the pictures are overexposed and the shadows are too heavy. I know it's hard to photograph large MOCs, but you might consider doing so with natural light either outdoors or indoors. Using a tripod will stabilize your shot to avoid blurriness.
