MOC: Westminster Palace inspired building
Posted 21 April 2012 - 03:22 PM
After building the Tower Bridge, I felt like doing something similar to that style. So I was going to build a section of the Westminster Palace. But I underestimated the amount of bricks it takes to just do a 2x3 building. So I cut it down a bit. Still in that style, but simplified a little.
The Westminster Palace looks like a big cardboard box from a far. So it gives me this idea of building my building in panels. So it's easier to carry around. All 4 sides come off.
4 sides sit on the base and then are locked together with technic pins (forgot to take pic of the pins).
The side towers and the roof then sets on top of it. The roof is built with a technic frame.

Not only is the scope of it immense, but the detailing is so well done, and it is obvious to me that a lot of thought and planning went into this.
I love the choice of colors, the tan technic and bread pieces involved in the detailing, and also the technic-supported roof and base.

The 4 walls come apart into 4 pieces for the ease of moving and storing. So obviously having an interior defeats that purpose. The interior is completely empty.
Any more to join it.....perhaps a clock tower ?
Well, I've built quite a few (5~6) clock towers of various sizes in the past 2 years. So I've passed my clock tower building urge. Also I'm about to move, so I'm in tearing down phase. In fact, I just teared down this moc today. It's been sitting there for 2 month now. I don't usually keep moc around for longer than that anyway. So in short, not going to build a big Ben anytime soon.
