I HAVE BEEN THE ONLY ONE TO WORK ON THIS PIECE. I am currently in 2 years process in perfecting my lego base. i have a total of 6 green base plates, 1 gray one, and three small ones to fit around the grey. I have NEVER bought leogs brick by brick, all of these legos are from sets, and i still have millions of other legos laying around. Unfortunatly i dont have enough to finish them as i wish to color coordinate my creation in order to please me. These are some pics and i will elaborate on each of them. As always; some secrets,areas, cant all be revealed, not yet...
first pic: overview of my base, entrance is the the left(the gate),you can see the walls surrounding it, and the emptiness on the inside (soon to be filled).
Second: back corner, armory/ control room. you can also see the watchtower with the missing stairs. Vast amount of controls/ screens, ALL weapons in this room are non-lego. BUT, i have over 30 Custom ALL LEGO guns i will soon post.
Third: close up of the right part of the front wall, including windows, 50mm dual repeating cannons, and a chaingun, yes that chaingung is ALL lego made and custom.
Forth: close up of left side of the front wall, two guns that fire real bullets/missles.
Once again a 50mm cannon. you can see the height of the wall itself, 16 bricks.
Fifth:front of the base, you see the gate, 4 cannons, 3 laser guns, and a duel set of 77mm mortar lauchers. and to the right you see the 4 missles, and a machine gun box underneath. also the wood/sandbag turret outpost under the tree. Finally: you see a door to underneath the fron wall.
Sixth: close up on lauchers, also the opening door on the side of the wall, and the wood postes that support the area over the river. also see a part of the fron wall from the inside.
Seventh: back wall, incomplete, see two machine gun sets, and 22mm 120 degree rotating cannons.
Eighth:backcorner of the base, see a AWTT (all weather/terrain truck.) MY custom creation. that can slide out from the wall. and a net for easy wall climbing. Also you see all 3 levels of the wall/base.
Ninth: elavator, both used as a floor/roof/walkway/elavator. fits perfectly. Also see the structure/ design of the front wall.
Tenth: AWTT, pulled out on a sliding-floor system, and a close up on the back of the corner.
Looks good - not sure what advice you need from me other than to keep up the good work. The assault cannon or minigun looks like one of Brian's design I think, but nice none the less. Keep building man. Lee.
