This is my Lighthouse, or as i like to call it, The Lonely Pylon.
She has an amazing story behind her.
I created her twice,
First time was for my LUG's yearly Lego event. Klodsfest.

But when i tried to squeeze her into a box, that was half a centimeter to narrow.
Then she bounced off the plate, down into the box. And shattered into 3471 pieces.
Then I closed the box, loaded it into the car and drove off to the event, (I couldnt rebuild her on sight as planned)
To make matter even worse, I hadn't taken any photos of her, so I had to rebuild all of it, from my mind alone.

Several months later, i rebuilded her for another Lego event.
Where she complimented to the sky.
People specialy liked the rocks surrounding the Pylon. And the fact she's part of the rock structure.

2 months after that, I was so lucky to be selected, for the Lego Store Showcase.
from the 15 of november untill friday the 3/1.

Comments and Crititism is more than welcome. Please share your opinion.
Enjoy

Old fool!' he said. 'Old fool! This is my hour. Do you not know Death when you see it? Die now and curse on vain!' And with that he lifted high his sword and flames ran down the blade.

Yea you have. at a prewiously post.
But he likes to eat that rowboat, hehe.

And thoose pumpkins is for a pumpkin hunt i have in my layout when i exhibit.
I got 11 pumpkins in total. But only 1 is on fire.
And thats the one the audience is supposed to find. And that is hidden within the lighthuse, top floor.
You can just gaze it, in the window.

This is to make the audience, scout all the little details upon my ships, and the rest of the layout.
And trust me, it works!

Beautiful lighthouse! I like how you've made it look like a storm beaten structure, it gives it lots of character!

Wonderful build! Love the rock details and ramp! Maybe a spiral staircase up the interior?
