Hi there, I just wanted to share a simple MOC I made a few weeks ago.
Working on my PhD, I use a binocular microscope (Leica MZ 6, for anyone interested), and one day I decided to try and make a LEGO version of it.

And here is its actual form, in use for high resolution, very very important paleontological studies :laugh:

Indeed very simple, but yet also very good to fit in minifig scale RasV  :wacko:
Always great to get a referance picture, and I am interested in what the real thing is called.
Even though it doesn´t mean a thing to me, nore will I remember it, but it adds a fun fact about the MOC  :thumbup:

Nice MOC.
If I ever do an update to my crime lab, I will put one of these in :)

Looks fairly accurate.  But why can you use this?  I think it looks like a microscope :grin:

I'm glad you appreciate the little 'meta-data' (or simply extra description details) I added. I too like it when builders link to reference material: I think it adds a better insight on the origin of a model and helps undertand the use of some techniques.

Thank you, prateek. Actually, I defended my PhD thesis on the 5th of February, so now I'll need luck to find a new job :laugh:

Simply because I didn't think about it :blush:
That, and because the two pieces I have in that shape are one in Dark Grey and the other in Dark Turquoise, which would stand out quite a bit when compared to the original item :grin:

Thanks both for the feedback. I like this kind of MOCs, so I may try some other items in the future :wink:
