Rinse Jan vs Andrew Somers:
Claes Oldenburg - The Swedish born, American educated sculptor is best know for his large scale replicas of everyday objects. Choose your own everyday object and recreate it at a scale large than reality out of Lego.
At first I got no clou what I had to build for our 'awesome' catogory.
But after a time I got some ideas: and I really love the way the whole MOC came out. Not only because this almost was exactly how I pictured it and how I wanted it but also because I learned a lot from my building.
first I started with creating large things out of LEGO: giant keys and locks and others things (dont know the english word for those). But after a while I made a pair of scissors and I thought: "this is it!.
I made some others thing around it (kept these out eventually), and created the suroundings and background. At last I used the only daylight left to take these pictures.
hope you enjoy. (and I have not forgotten to say anything).

hope you enjoy, and please leave some comments.

If you liked the build (or didn't), then please comment.
I love the hear all your opinions, good or bad.
If I've understood the bracketing system correctly, I think it's you vs me next round. This was an awesome take on the category, It always blows when your opponent doesn't/is unable to post their entry. Although I understand Somers had a legit reason.
This is a FANTASTIC entry! We know that "real life" got in the way for Andrew and some people may not enjoy "winning by default" but let me tell you, there was NO default in this! You pulled out all the stops, built a GREAT moc and DESERVE to be in round 3! Good luck next round! ~ Chris.
Rinse, I just realised that your opponent is not able to post his entry - as a result, you win round 2. But let me tell you this: Your entry is impressive and I was amazed by just seeing the thumbnail. In addition, once again you added some nice details (like the ship's spindrift) and the forced perspective.
