Hi All,

I was again reminded how I need to be posting on EB, so many apologies for my oversight.

But anyway here is my latest creation, a LEGO Colosseum, approx 200,000 bricks, just over a months work and I hoe something you will enjoy.
(As always i had a heck of a lot of fun doing the little details!)

A big thanks to Gabe who gave me a hand on the project.

Lots more pictures on Flickr. (linked in my signature too)

It's just too good...

The small details, and even the concept of the past and present in one creation. Phenomenal.

I really liked how you did a split style, one side as it may have looked like centuries ago when it was new, and other side as it looks today.

Love this!  I will spend more time drooling over the additional photos and details later but I love how you have split it to be a ruin on one side and how it would look in its prime on the other!

I love the difference between the modern and pat sides. I thought it was all in the past until I saw one of the vans in the last picture and thought "What?" :wacko:

This was such a fun project to be a part of, so thankyou again for the opportunity! :classic:

Brilliant! Absolutely fantastic, and the split between how it looked in its prime and modern day is a great idea, and brilliantly executed.

Any chance of it making an appearance at BrickExpo in Canberra next month?  I'd love to see this up close. ;-)

That is absolutely stunning! *oh2* To be able to make such a detailed replica, you must have a lot of talent... Anyway, keep up the great work.

So that's why I can't find any white bricks... you used them all!

Seriously, though, it's gorgeous. A cool concept brilliantly executed.

Nice work on giving it the aged treatment! Gonna make a complete version of how it was in Roman Times :tongue:? Although, it actually seems kinda too small for it to be the Coloseum.

I'm speachless! Almost, that is... :blush: This is an amazing work! There are so many nice little details that give life to the Colosseum. The transtion from roman to modern ages is fantastic and depicts the building really nicely. The fountain design is great, looks very clear and fits in nicely. I've been to Colosseum few years ago, and your build is equally impressive as the original Colosseum! I noticed some of the minifigure torsos - they look 'antique' and I haven't seen them before. Do you mind asking where are these from?
