Well, I don't have that may bricks suited to building a modular, but I decided to give it a try!  So here's my Museum of the Middle Ages:

The front of the museum originally belonged to a castle, thus the doors. Of course, it has been modernized somewhat!  :laugh:  On top there are two knights jousting (or maybe engaged in battle?) and on top of the turret stands another warrior. There are also four tourists walking around, plus a busnessman passing by. If you look closely at this next picture you can see the throne inside.  :wink:

On the right in the interior we have a knight, and also stairs leading to the roof. Not too much on this side because the stairs take up a lot of room. There is a bow and arrow hanging on the wall. And of course, the king is there, but he is not visible from this angle (his front is truned toward the window anyway).

On the left side we have first the court jester, with a tuba  :tongue: , then a chest full of gold (it actually does have gold and jewels inside!), on top of that a mini-knight on his dragon, and also a golden weapon rack. The tip of a black minifigure platform is for the blue knight.

And last but not least, a detailed throne across from the door:

That's a good start Kai, but to be called a modular set it needs some more floors. Posted Image

I think its a great entry using a limited number of bricks. I'm glad you entered the contest even though it doesn't have enough floors. I like the tuba.

That's true, and I would have loved to add another floor.  But like I said, I just don't get the right kind of sets (I tend to stick with getting several $15-20 range sets rather than one big one, and those don't have that many bricks :wink: ).  So I really couldn't do an estra floor.  :cry_sad:

I hope you don't mind.  I wanted to see the MOC better, so I increased the size of your posted Flickr images. :grin:
