It is hard to achieve a circle-shape with Lego bricks. However, it is much more difficult to create a sphere.


My latest MOC is a famous Swedish building: The Globe.


Reference pictures for you who are not familiar with this building, are included at the end of this post.

Please tell me what you think!  :wink:

This isn't really minifig-scale, as you probably really had figured out...  :tongue:

This is the second "part" of Stockholm that I have built. The first thing I created was the Stockholm Metro.

Excellent micro-scale build 'Skrytsson', you packed as much detail into it as possible and made sure you kept it's shape true ! :thumbup:
That shot with the train in the foreground is fantastic ! :grin:
Brick On 'Skrytsson' ! :classic:

On my mind, a globe is one of the most difficult part to do in lego, and you did it very well !  :thumbup:

Thank you. I believe it is pretty sturdy: you can breath on it ( :tongue: ) and you can touch it, carefully. However, I would not play with it since the fiber optic cables are very flexible and will probably jump off the U-clip they are attached to.  :blush:

Any more comments, anyone?  :classic:
Please take a look at my MOCs =)

In other words, sturdy enough :laugh:.

Excellent MOC, it looks just like the real thing and I too like the technique you have used to create the globe effect and shape.  :thumbup:

That is quite the building to build :laugh: ! It must have been challenging, and I see that you even added the windows on the globe. Great MOC  :thumbup: !
