[MOC] Tivoli Main entrance

Recommended Posts

Together with 6 other members of my lug we made a LEGO edition of Tivoli in Copenhagen. My Friend Lasse Vestergård has already presented the complete layout.

Here a few days before I start to take it apart I think it deserves its own presentation.

I was lucky to see the Tivoli MOC at LEGO World, and I was truly amazed by it all - and certainly not least the main entrance. It is really well made, there is no doubt what it is. - It must be hard to take a building like this apart. But well, new challenges are waiting you, Lasse and the other members of the LUG in future I guess. Maybe something for next year's LEGO World? :excited:

It will be hard but it will also release a lot of storage space.

We always has a lot of different projects in mind. This time something a little more Childish :wink:

Great building. It's recognizable, and as I've seen it last year in CPH, it looks fantastic also in reality, not just the photos. How do you plan a build like this? Do you get a blue print or the floor plane to help with the dimension, or you just try and see how it goes?

With this project I started with some photos. When building this and many other buildings I start with one or more details. In this case it was the corners and the top of the round pillars. Once a number of details are done most of the structure gives it self. I think this way is better than deciding the size first just to struggle unnecessary to make it all fit.

Early in the process it looked like this:

Before I started building my guess was that the main entrance would be 3x3 standard baseplates. it ended being 2x6 baseplates.
