Buckleberry Ferry
Bucklebury Ferry, a raft-ferry used as the second main crossing point of the Brandywine River from the Shire to Buckland, after the Brandywine Bridge (which is twenty miles further north). It is apparently left unmanned to be used by hobbit travellers as needed. The dock is a popular attraction for fishing, swimming, or just relaxing. This MOC shows the Buckleberry Ferry on a normal day, not the scene from the movie where Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin hop on the ferry to escape the Black Rider. This is an entry to the Lego LOTR Contest (Link at bottom). Enjoy!
About this creation




The ferry, which seems to be transporting a merchant, with some VERY expensive goods!



The merchant. Iíve wanted to use Gimliís face for a while now, and Iíve finally found an excuse!



Although it may look very simple, those railing are VERY annoying! They brought me to the point where I grabbed the raft and chucked it at the wall, which made me even MORE angry, which made me punch a wall! Bad choice on my part, because now my knuckles are very sore, and there is a dent in my wallÖ



The dock.



An old fisherman, who has caught his fair share of fish today!





Another hobbit, most likely looking to relax, and get away from it all.





Some foliage.



More foliage.



A rather ďArtisticĒ picture, if I do say so myself!





The back, which is a lot prettier than usual!



This is my first attempt at a pathway like this, but I think it turned out pretty well!





Nothing deadly under the dock right now, but you can never be too sure with medieval docks and/or bridges!




Without any minifigs or accessories.



The plain ferry. (Sorry for the some-what blurry picture, but I have to blame it on my sore knuckles).



The plain dock.



Without the ferry, so you can view the wake.



The hobbits!

Cool design! I did one LOTR MOC myself and plan on doing some more but DA has taken over my building time for right now. Really like the detail and effort you put into it. Looks like a complete MOC and not something half finished.

Very nice! The execution is well done, and everything is crisp, clean, and solid. It is simple yet interesting at the same time, which I like and are my favorite types of builds.

Temperamental... :P Good job! The raft and the ripples around it are ingenious, and good figs! Maybe you should accompany that Hobbit, to get away from it all... :)
