After seeing my given category I automatically knew what I wanted to do. For quite some time Iíve been interested in doing a book type build, but with something inside. This was definitely a real challenge. Building in micro-scale is something I donít do often, and with the inside of the book only being roughly three studs high, it was something that didnít come easy.
About this creation
Build a museum exhibit based on a real-life example.
Maybe a dinosaur skeleton and museum lobby, a life-size replica of a Bronze Age sword or a Roman mosaic. Anything that would actually BE in a museum.
Wow. Two days of building and I'm happy to even be posting this. Life has been hectic, hectic enough to almost count myself out. But nonetheless I present to you my entry with great satisfaction. Just the thought of being able to enter and be in Round 2 is enough to put a smile on my face. Best of luck John, I can see it'll be a tough match, but something fun and exciting, something I'll definitely remember.
A big thank you to the wonderful judges for all your hard work. You guys make this the most chaotic, stressful time of the year. Pushing everyone's building skill's and speed to the max! God bless y'all.
Have a great day!
First let me say that this build is just REALLY cool! I love the concept behind it! However, your opponent's build was also very well done and I think it fit the category better. He got my vote. Thanks! ~ Chris.
Great idea, although not sure it's a museum exibit, but clever and well constructed nonetheless. Could you have made space in the cover to accomodate the mast and sail of the ship so it closed fully? Good job, and good luck to you!
