This is a very beautiful part of the city! It is very well built and interesting to see the sales stands.

This looks great. Nice build with a wonderful pop of colour, especially in the tower. Although my favourite bits are the birds adding a little bit of life way above the busy bazaar.

Nice brick-build storks there.
I see you build part of the mosque wall upside down to create this hanging effect of the ornamentation.

Love it!  Great greebling for the road.

I'm a sucker for ancient Arabian/Persian settings, it's a shame they never formally made a theme out of it.  The best you can get for the helmets is out of the Prince of Persia sets.

I showed this to my wife and she immediately said Marrakech! I guess it shows how well you've hit the mark!

Stunning build. The attention to detail from the cobblestones to the top of the minaret is top notch.

@NOD Thanks.

@MAB Thanks, really wanted to add some storks to the build as I saw them on some reference pictures I used.

@GeoBrick Thanks, Yeah I had to build parts upside down to get the desired effect, which was a bit tricky to figure out, but it looks great now.

@Triceron yeah we need some more/new Arabian sets for more specific parts.

@hoppa Thank you, I used a lot of reference pictures to get as close as possible for the size I was going for.

@Feuer Zug Thanks.

Wow. You almost feel like you are there.
Especially like the floors and the (classic) palm trees in combination with more modern trees.

Excellent.

hanks, I used many reference pictures to build it.

I can imagine that. Was worth it!

Wow, one of the best system builds I've ever seen! I especially like the archways on the bottom right, they reming me of a modern warfare 3 multiplayer map. The small wooden supports sticking out also add a very special flavor of realism to the build.

Wow, how could I've missed that a month ago, I really don't know. Brilliant model and the last picture looks magnificent. Deserves to be on the front page!

@brimbolet yeah you can miss it when a lot of new topics are created or someone replies to a bunch of older topics at once.

But thanks for your comment, I also very pleased with how the last picture turned out.
