Today it's my pleasure to share a popular scene from "Star Wars: A New Hope" with you. It's the Great Temple of Yavin 4 where the rebels have their headquarters during the attack of the first Death Star.
The Great Temple of Yavin 4 is an old Massassi Temple, a leftover of the ancient Massassi species who lived on Yavin 4 long before the Rebels came to the moon. The layout is a ziggurat, a step pyramid with terraces (ziggurats were popular in ancient Mesopotamia on Earth). The special thing about the Great Temple is that it has a pentagonal base which is very hard to build in bricks.
It took a while once I had figured out a way to build a regular pentagon, and that's what I finally came up with:
With this technique the Great Temple was finally formed. It comes complete with a new 7-piece micro X-Wing design.
That's it for now.
Thank you for your time and interest.
Have a great sunday!
