Ewok Treehouse or: homedisplaying the cute furry things
Posted 31 December 2011 - 05:08 PM
On the last day of the latest Community Build I would like to present my entry to you.
Truth to be told, I was already into the process of designing in LDD when ACPin made the official call for entries. As it turned out this was my luck, since I started into a new job in 12/11, with 10 hour shifts on six days a week and all.
So this didn't turn out as big as I would have liked, but I managed at least one tree with house and platform and all, so please, enjoy!
The whole thing from top down, complete with minifigs.
A little closer now, unfortunately not very sharp. I still need to setup a little Photo-studio to fit my needs and create the proper atmosphere.
A shot of the top, this one without figs:
This one with different lighting and figs, but not a good background unfortunately.
Wait, whats going on below?
This is what keeps the whole thing upright:
And this is how it looks set up on a very narrow shelf right up to the wall:
As I mentioned before I didn't have the time I wanted this month, but I won't stop now and keep building on it in future.
Hope you like it! C&C welcome!
Have a good start into 2012!

It's Brickforges Tribal Spear.
I would really like to build it into a complete tree, but at the moment I'm a little scare about static.
I'm not really good in physics, but since the whole construction is hollow and the top section (albeit sturdy) is pretty heavy already, AND its only half a tree,so the weight isn't spread out equally around it, I don't really know how much more weight the bottom can take without tipping forward or crumbling into itself.
If anybody out there has experience with this kind of problem, I would be glad for any hint you could give me, I could upload a shot from the back if it helps.
The trans-green cheese-slopes were more of a coincidence, I just grabbed a handfull at the Lego Store when they didn't have any plants aside from flowerstems. And having not as many "real" plants I added them to give the leaves more substance.
I think the next thing I'll have to add is a thinner tree on the left hand side, since the platform tends to bend a little under its own weight.
Happy new year to all of you!

I love the way you turn this scene with a special mention for the snot roof, the sideways shrubs and the trans green cheese slopes !
The use of plants is also very smart. Congrats for this MOC that stand on a very cool way on you display shelf !

Plus the logs in a SNOT design makes a really cool "floor" or "treetop base".
Thanks for sharing
