Matsumoto Castle . . Hey all! In my respites from judging, soccer, school, and general life, I have been working on a project for the Eurobricks Architecture Contest. It took me a long time to decide on a model, but once I did, things fell into place perfectly. I even managed to find a LEGO store with white grill tiles and black grill bricks which suited my needs excellently. My purpose with this creation was to complement the wonderful architectural series by Adam Reed Tucker. I was hoping to stray from the typical modernistic/minimalistic architectural style that the series incorporates, and instead bring the contest to my grounds, that is, the castle world. Most of the other entries are much smaller, so I was going for the "Man among Boys" approach to this one. The oriental style was quite challenging at this scale and with the colors I chose. I found myself spending a good portion of my time on the roofs and getting the negative slope flair. It is a bit choppier than I would like, but it has been smoothed out a lot since when I first finished it. Anyhow, the build is pretty self explanatory. For pics and info of the actual building, go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matsumoto_Castle Be sure to leave a comment. I appreciate hearing back from you guys! Grace and Peace, -Blake SOLI DEO GLORIA! EDIT: Be sure to vote for it on Eurobricks! :D
