Hey, just a small MOC to present today, probably the last for quite a while as i'll be away for the next couple of months.

Brickshelf is being slow to moderate today but here is the overview. Since it's a small MOC one picture does it fair justice I think.

The main concept of the MOC was to try out using flags as a waterfall, i'm pleased with the outcome.

Let me know what you think!  :thumbup:

Oh and the rest of the gallery is here.

I really like the tranquility and simplicity of this scene. Nice idea for the waterfall, although I'm not 100% sure on it myself. It's worth a try though, I'd never have thought of that, so well done on the originality of the idea!  :thumbup:

That´s a fine and peaceful scenery, a neat landscaping and a very smart 'wetwork' indeed!  :thumbup:

I totally agree with you!
The waterfall looks very well desgined. And the rocks and the trees do, too. (Very interesting and nice idea to build trees. :wink: )

Very well done! :thumbup:

Really cool waterfall Duke, and nice little vignette to showcase it. My main complaint is that with all that water coming down from the fall, I would think the water would continue off the base of the vignette, not just stay in a puddle like that.

Very interesting building technique of your waterfall by using flags to do so. It's is done in a creative manner. The landscape formation of the waterfall and the green field certainly illustrates a peaceful moment for the Samurai whom is on the trip, praying for a safe journey. I assume so, since he is carrying a backpack along with his katana.

The only thing which could be improved, and agreed with Sir Dillion, by adding the water ripples at the base of the fall will create a much better effect. Overall, I enjoy viewing this moc. Perhaps, I will like to experiment this technique of yours too.

Ninja and Samurai mocs are always great.  :thumbup:

Beautifully done Duke.  Is the samurai meditating or trying to catch the fish?

I can see this just sitting on my desk while I study, Needing a break I look across at this tranquil scene and I am ready to work again. First MOC that has placed me in my own house admiring the creation.

Very well done. I like the flags as water, I think it works well.
