[MOC] Morspoort (city gate)

Recommended Posts

Watch the recreation of an old city gate to enter the city Leiden, Netherlands. It's called the Morspoort (Mors gate) dated from 1669. A few weeks ago I created the topic [MOC] Sweet red mill. After photo 4 I added this project to my lego city.

So beautiful! Thank you for sharing this. My favorite detail I see so far is the technique for those arched windows on the front.

It looks very Dutch indeed, I especially like the use of the Friends (sticker) tile, even that (Stephanie) vibes very Dutch haha

Fantastisch!  I recognized it immediately, when working from home I sometimes work from nu Parents home in Leiden, I past it on my daily walk, even more now that its part of the singelroute.  You did an excellent job!!

I had to do a double take. I recognized it immediately as I visited Leiden daily pre-covid. But I couldn't believe that you MOC'd the exact building I cycled through so often!

What a great MOC! I love the authentic shaping and colour layering with the white highlights. And the surroundings of the building are so lively and colourful!

Also, I love the amount of bicycles featured. Very authentic XD

That looks great, the overall detail is outstanding and I love the windmill. Is the drawbridge functional?

Welcome to EB! You've done a pretty good job recreating the scene. Well done on the dome especially!

Thanks! Here is a closer look inside the dome. I think creating a dome in lego is always tuff to make. The other picture is a closer look to the arched window.
