Bugio's tower

Hello people!

Here it is. My newest MOC X-D

This construction was based on a lighthouse named "Forte de S�o Louren�o" (aka "Bugio's tower), located at the end of Tagus river where it meets the Atlantic Ocean (Lisbon - Portugal).

Here's the real one.

It was the first time I have built "rounded walls", and I found out that it's much more complicated building such walls, than it look at first sight...

Finding the correct sizes and "roundiness" to plug all pieces together turned a simple task into a "nightmare"... but it was what gave all the fun :-D

I hope you like it, and suggestions are welcome ;)

Cheers!

Hello gads!

This is the first time I've met you so welcome at Eurobricks and thanks so much for sharing your wonderful creation. It is creative and beautiful! *wub* I really like the way you utilized the three and 1 curve technique and the rest of the set is simple yet nice and detailed. Like a vintage town set! It's really good. I like it a lot. I especially like the roof of the first story, the observatory deck, I guess it would be. That is a very clever way to do that.

Thanks again for sharing. Your work is an inspiration! *sweet* *y*

You should post here more; I love it! *wub* It's one of those MOCs that look almost like a photo when viewed as a thumbnail. I'm surprised how well the BURPs work. The passing cargo ship is a nice touch too! :-D

Welcome Gads!! That's a wonderful lighthouse!! *wub* It looks alot like the real thing.

I think you achieved a good brick structure using this technique. Well done!

About the cargo ship, is that an official set, or a MOC?

Would love to see more MOCs of you *sweet*

It looks really good *y* . It's really close to the original thing you based it on. The shape must've been a hard thing to accomplish.
