Alright, here is that library I started ages ago!  This was remarkably easy to build, got it done in five hours or so (and I wasn't working nonstop!).  Oh, yes, I started it ages ago, but then I had to destroy the small amount of progress I had made for Challenge V.  So I did get the entire thing done in five hours... not as impressive as Ecc by a long shot, but I was happy with the speed!

Some "students" get there best sleep here (after all, how are you supposed to study after a night in the hot tub?)...

Fortunatly, others are a bit more studious...

...even if they have green faces.  (I'm starting to think that wasn't the best face for my sigfig's companion!)

Nice library, NRG Kai!
You've got some, massive books there! :wink:

I really like how those shelves turned out. And about the green faced minifig. Maybe he's of a lesser known Kaliphliphlic culture? Technically there are many different and strange races in all areas beyond Nocturnus.

as for the build, I really like it. What I don't like is the guys in shirts and ties, that's just not the clothing of the time frame (ca. 1450) in which our story takes place!

This is a great little library.  I particularly like how you have done the base.  The minifgures do seem from a different era though!

On a side note, I think your building and presentation skills have really evolved in the short time that I have been on Eurobricks.  Each MOC just gets better and better.

Thanks, all!  I was really very pleased with the way this turned out, and it's probably my best vig to date.

I see what you mean there, but I really don't have much else; I didn't think students would look very good in suits of armor... :tongue:  (Maybe I should BL some apropriate shirts?)

Thanks!  Just reading the photography lesson of the RA really helped a lot, and I'm sure my building has improved, seeing all the amazing MOCs around here would make anyone get better! :classic:
