After finishing my first bigger project (medieval diorama) I wanted another challenge. Since I learned some nice new tricks and techniques from Derfel's Guide, I decided to start on some round buildings in minifig scale. After trying out different techniques, I established a solid base for a start...and ran out of specific bricks I need for the build.

Instead I moved down to microscale, and made my first miniMOC - a very simple lighthouse on an island.

One thing is clear, it's much easier making round builds in microscale. Yet, a challenge at the minifig scale remains...
