Tan Gatehouse

27 posts in this topic

My younger brother made this scene, it's a gatehouse with a market and butcher's shop behind it.

He built it entirely by himself and the buildings have interiors.

He came up with this roof design on his own :thumbup:

He would appreciate any comments or suggestions :classic:

This looks really well!

It's nice to see how he did the roofs on the gatehouse/towers so that you can open them :thumbup:

I like those signs in front of the butcher and the fishseller and those cheese wedges are a nice detail on the towers too :classic:

Great job! :thumbup:

Very nice! I dig the varied use of bricks with the log and round pieces. Also digging the signs. The only criticism I have is that I'd like to see a bit more color. Specifically some difference between the ground and building walls. Still, nicely done.

Looks nice, could use a chimney. :thumbup:

Thanks, though I'm not sure they need a chimney in the desert :look:

Thanks, I thought his roof design was brilliant, so I'm glad to see I'm not just biased :laugh:

Thank you, your suggestion is a good one too. I actually mentioned that to him as well, so his next MOC will be on a green base :thumbup:

Just 10? I think that's some pretty impressive work for that age.

Thanks, I've been encouraging him to MOC for awhile and giving him some pointers.

His next build has a round tower

;I feel bad for saying this, but the first thing I really noticed was the use of food bits on the sign! :laugh: Then I started noticing other things, like how nice those stalls look! :thumbup:
