So its currently 4 weeks late. so here is an update which only gives away a few techniques getting used in the build.
About this creation
So you want to see a sneak peak?? These images are only showing you part of the 96x128 stud MOC which I have been working on for 2 months now. This is part of the build which is about to be torn down and rebuilt to better fit the concept I originally envisioned. After 20 Bricklink orders I have all the pieces required to finish this beast off. Unfortunately its taking a while to recieve my last two orders - of which one of them includes bricks crucial to the completion of the build.
The area I am showing you is only 1/3 of the entire MOC, and as it will be torn down and re-modelled this is hardly a peak at anything. Apart from a few concepts you might pull from the general look of it.
This shot shows you the look of 4 of the 12 baseplates.
The other 2/3 of this MOC are sitting at around 90% complete, I am going to break MOCpage records in a few genres with this build.
So far this build uses close to 13'000 pieces, I am expecting this to rise to around 16'000 pieces - which after my inventory maths equates to around 1/2 of all my bricks. If only my other bricks were usefull colours for the build :(
The challenge! Take a guess at how tall this entire MOC is, these shots ive shown are deceptive. Hint: Its between 0 and 100 bricks tall. I also aim to bridge the gap between 1993 and 2011 in Lego used ;) This is one to keep your eyes peeled on! ~Thoy

I suggest making a inner wall behind your walls of 1x1 rounds, otherwise you will have lots of gaps where the light comes through and it will look odd. What mocpage records are you trying to break then?
Thanks for the tip Man, this would normally be fine but on this one occasion I have exhausted most of my usable wall elements in the model. I also find that a double thickness wall cramps space on the interiors. I have plans to build a model which can proportionally cope with a thick wall :) The finished build is now online if you wanted to view the drastic changes and find out the records I was trying to make. As always, thanks again Luke.
Looks interesting so far. I suggest making a inner wall behind your walls of 1x1 rounds, otherwise you will have lots of gaps where the light comes through and it will look odd. Thats the way Ive been doing it for the last 4 years. What mocpage records are you trying to break then?

looking cool, I'm working on quite a big moc as well, also in the fantasy theme, mine will be higher :P mhoahahaha
Just aslong as your not building a tree i'm fine with yours being taller. So far no one has guessed close. My parcel arrived in the country today, hopefully get it today or tomorrow. Looking forward to your build ;)
