The Lincoln Memorial
To begin, I incorporate Lego into my education whenever I can. The assignment was to research an important (American) National Monument. We had to write a paper about it and give a presentation in class. I (obviously) choose the Lincoln Memorial and built this model as my visual aid. Even though the build wasn't originally for MOCpages, I thought I'd take some artistic photos and try out a black background. Sorry for the poor quality of some of the pictures, it was a first. Thanks for viewing!
About this creation


The memorial was built in honor of Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of the United States.







I played with a lot of bizarre techniques and ratios in an attempt to get the statue right, and I'm reasonably pleased with how it turned out. And of course the build is a prime example of my favorite building styles: "studless" and "snotting" (studs not on top).



For the purpose of easily being able to display the Lincoln Statue, I made it removable from the base. This enabled me to walk around with it during my presentation. Here you can see the inset. The original sculpture was carved from 175tons of white Georgia marble, so carrying this was a good work out...



The statue (Lincoln's face is slightly too stoic here).

This is really good! The one thing that bothers me is that sitting leg technique it looks crude every time i see it. I might have to try my hand at a nicer way to do it. This MOC is still worth 5 lego heads though i hope you got a good mark!

Quoting Heath 'kik36' Flor Excellent job! One of my favorite memorials. Glad you didn't pick something too easy, like the Washington monument. ;) LMAO
Thanks Heath! Although to pull off the proper vertical angles of the Washington monument might be tricky. Max Piontner--another builder and friend of mine here on the pages--is in my class, and he actually did the Washington monument but hasn't posted it yet. Thanks for commenting! I was hoping to reach "50 likes".

Wow!!! I don't know why i didn't notice this before!!! The SNOTwork is great, and love the monochrome-yness. The only part that annoys me is the headlight brick that is facing outwards, but aside from that its amazing!!! I also made a moc for a school project, could you check it out if you have the time? Thanks!

Quoting Ben King Ignore my last comment. Due to the lack of entries the deadline for The Great Hobbit Contest has been extended. To what date I'm not sure yet.
Okay, thanks for the heads up. I'll try to get an entry in, but I can't promise. Thanks for rating!

Nice, I especially like the depression where the statue sits, great work! I love when LEGO and school are compatible, I actually just finished a LEGOmation for class last week! Hopefully you will have more chances to build for school, and I'm sure your class will be impressed! (Or steal your lunch money...)

Wow, 40 likes! Great work, Ian. Don't forget that if you are making an entry for The Great Hobbit contest it ends in 9 days! Don't worry if you don't think you'll have time because I'm going to end up extending the deadline because we don't have very many entries.

Quoting Caleb S. Um, why are the legs crooked?
Because on the actual statue one of Abe's legs (the right leg) is extended forward and slightly to the side. With limited time and pieces I did the best I could to replicate it. Thanks for the comment.

Really a good work, Ian, I like the idea of ​​all the flat surfaces, and all at the same color. Bravo! Is all ok with me, Ian? Because after my answer ( No problem) for the Moc Athalon, You no longer have commented, my creations. I still hope you can join my team, but it is fair that you share with whoever you want.
