    [WIP] LDD Caserta Palace - Italy - Minfig Scale

    Unfortunately, i think because of the large number of pieces my LDD keeps crashing. Do you know any solution to this?

    [WIP] LDD Caserta Palace - Italy - Minfig Scale

    @lightningtiger i don't think i will build it for real because it will have about 100.000-200.000 pieces and i don't have that kind of money. However, it's good practice Ok so right now i have finished 3 exterior walls and part of the roof assembling apx. 43000 pieces. Because of the slope of the roof tiles i think it will be a bit narrower than the real thing but, unfortunately, i don't have a solution with existing pieces that will preserve the symmetry of the build. And now, the photos of the build as it is today: Front view: caserta-3 by adrian.baias, on Flickr Aerial view: caserta-4 by adrian.baias, on Flickr Facade detail: caserta-5 by adrian.baias, on Flickr Roof detail: caserta-6 by adrian.baias, on Flickr Thanks for the feedback!

    REVIEW: 21019 Eiffel Tower

    Set Name: Eiffel Tower Set #: 21019 Theme: Architecture Pieces: 321 + 3 spares = 324 pieces (more on that later) Year of Release: 2014 Price at Release: EUR 45/USD ??? INTRODUCTION Today i received my brand new 2014 21019 Eiffel Tower, and i decided to do a review of it.s This brings my LEGO Architecture collection to 20 sets, the only one that i am missing is the 21001 Hancock Center. I was fortunate enough to be in the US at the time of the 21050 Architecture Studio launch so i snatched it instantly. Maybe i will do a review of that also. Anyway, on to the review: THE BOX FRONT: _DSC0827 by adrian.baias, on Flickr BACK: _DSC0829 by adrian.baias, on Flickr SIDE: _DSC0828 by adrian.baias, on Flickr UNBOXING: Enjoy your building experience! (I did): _DSC0830 by adrian.baias, on Flickr Contents: _DSC0831 by adrian.baias, on Flickr The Booklet: _DSC0832 by adrian.baias, on Flickr Being printed in portrait mode, it is a little bit hard to keep open without some help. BUILD: The parts... _DSC0835 by adrian.baias, on Flickr Closeup of the more unusual parts... _DSC0836 by adrian.baias, on Flickr Coincidentally or not, this set has exactly 324 pieces (including the french name plate and the spares), which is the exact height in meters of the real tower. So the construction begins... The base is ready. _DSC0838 by adrian.baias, on Flickr The build is structured into three parts: The base, the median part, and the top: The base and the median part... _DSC0840 by adrian.baias, on Flickr Connected,., _DSC0842 by adrian.baias, on Flickr The top completed... _DSC0843 by adrian.baias, on Flickr And is done. COMPLETED MODEL: _DSC0844 by adrian.baias, on Flickr The completed model looks stunning. Closeup of the base and the nameplate: _DSC0846 by adrian.baias, on Flickr "Aerial" view: _DSC0847 by adrian.baias, on Flickr Another angle: _DSC0848 by adrian.baias, on Flickr And another... _DSC0850 by adrian.baias, on Flickr From the top: _DSC0852 by adrian.baias, on Flickr MODEL ACCURACY: I haven't seen the real thing in person but to me it looks pretty spot on at this size. CONCLUSIONS AND SCORE: Design: 10/10 It couldn't get any closer to the real thing at this size. Build: 9/10 A little repetition, but overall nice building techniques. Parts: 7/10 Good grey/dark grey assortment, but nothing too special aside from a few pieces. Value: I could not give it a value as i'm collecting all of them even if i pay a little more. But at 45 Euros, i think this is in the standard price range for an Architecture set. Overall: 10/10 I'm a little bit subjective here, but i believe is one of the best Architecture sets. Definitely top three for me. It looks great as a display piece and it has the perfect size and proportions. I recommend it heavily. Thank you for reading and i hope i didn't bore you with my first review. Adrian.
