This is great-looking so far, and I know that you'll pull it off fantastically when it's done! I love seeing how you've done some piece usage - it's great inspiration!

Will probably finish the whole structure this weekend and then all remaining details/posing next week. Sometimes it's the simplest designs that work.  :sweet:

Will reserve judgement until all entries are in but by far the best entry so far

Awesome idea, beautiful execution, flawless presentation and at a substantial scale, there is really a lot going on here when you look close enough.

As per usual great work AC  :thumbup:

It could've easily been bigger but kept it to the large baseplate with a stud or so overhang in a few places. If only I could've lighted up the bottom part, then the details inside would've been shown.
