Ebeltoft
The antigue Ebeltoft Rådhus (town hall)
About this creation
This is the old city hall of the danish town Ebeltoft.
Constructed the year 1789, today a museum.

First some general views of the model;









The typical tourist-photo of the building;

My grandparents owned a summer house in Ebeltoft for many years, so I know the building and the town very well!

It´s the first time I´ve tried to make textured walls, but I dont know if it shows very well on the photos;

By the way; The red-white thingy is really an old sea-mine that is now used as a piggy bank for the tourists...

This is a "high-precision" model; Every window, plank, angle, etc. is represented in its right position.

Note especially the 4 small windows; They are SNOT-positioned 4-plate wide ones... (Think about it... ;-)
Did you also spot the brick-build owl¿?

Also, all tourists must take a photo of their kids "riding" the cannons (when the guard is not there, of course...)


Another picture of the wall-textures;


The owl again, if you missed it the first around;


The bell-tower is actually octagonal in real life too. Perfect for Lego reproduction! ;-)


The minifig-guard is one brick taller than normal minifig...


Finally, a top-down view of the whole thing. Note the angled position of the building on the baseplate.
(The baseplate is of the old type meassuing 50x50 studs.)



HAPPY NEW YEAR to everybody!

Quoting Family Vuurzoon Your Ebeltoft in amazing! The realistic design and the great details. And you didn't make it easy by putting the building on a slope and under an angle! The bright red color is beautiful and my suggestion for the real Ebeltoft. Excellent work!
Thanks a lot for a comment of my (still) favorite personal MOC!

Brilliant! I haven't been to ebeltoft but the style and shape of the building looks very typical for our country :-) And this is a great representation of it! That bell tower looks very nice, maybe i should go there and see the real one someday.

Quoting Jay Rhum Awesome work, as usual! I had forgotten to give my vote to your favourite MOC! :-)
Thanks. Much appreciated, as this is a very special MOC for me, remembering my childhood vacations at my grandparents summerhouse... Also -as a MOC- everything just worked out perfectly here, so I am particulary satisfied with this one.

you really are ambitious, multilevel terrain, building at an angle, historic reproduction, exteriors, wow! very elegant and nicely done! i love that you show a reference pic of the actual building, very professional, excellent work henrik!

Lovely building. As Mr. Turbo said, you even went to the trouble of angling the building on the base plate. I like how you have scaled up your minifigure and added feet using "tooth" plates-I should have done that on mine! Excellent.

Fantastic job Henrik !!! Especially the angle between the building and the plate. I still prefer your sailing ship, though. I had some troubles creating my Octan Le Mans Racing cars page so I got it 3 times. I deleted the ones with the less comments but I copied your on the remaining page. I couldn't reply to your question on my page so I do it here : the modified brick is ref. 40996. I don't know in which set it appeared, I bought those parts on Bricklink. When I so them I knew I had to because they would come handy in one of my 5-wides and maybe something else. You surely have an eye for good things!

Nice work Henrik! A very faithful reproduction, I’m especially impressed by the building orientation and the way you have created the landscape elevations. The steeple work is really good too. 5/5

  January 23, 2011
The combination of angles in this is incredible... the overall angle of the building, the integration of the front stairs and the slanted road, the crossbeams and supports for the tudor-style building itself, and the octagonal clock tower are all really well-executed. Great use of that old minifigure torso as well.

This model is truly awesome. GREAT JOB!!! I just love all of the details - the steeple, the walls, the landscaping, the roof slopes, just everything!!

Quoting Vibor Cavor You could've maybe used the different tone of red - like a reddish brown like it's on the original house
I think the roof was originally red (or terracotta), but more than 200 years of weathering has made it almost green with moss...

A very very beautiful MOC. You could've maybe used the different tone of red - like a reddish brown like it's on the original house but nevertheless this is a masterpiece with all the details and elements used to make this house like it is in reality

I'm not normally a fan of architectural builds, but this is AMAZING! I love the unconventional techniques used here, from the top of the tower on the roof to the offsetting of the building on the baseplate.
