I'm back with what could very well be my largest creation to date. And if not my largest build, than certainly my most extensive rockwork project.
Nolan has once again "stumbled" upon another natural wonder, the kind of formation that really takes the breath away (and elicits mad thoughts of wanting to run across it)...
Things like this are the reason that Nolan Aeras is now, and ever will be, an explorer and adventurer, seeking out the unknown...
This natural bridge is an actual place that I visited with my church about 2 years back. The access to it is a 5 mile intensive hike, but seeing it live and in person makes it all worth it. In fact, that's really the only way to see it, there are next to zero pictures of it even online and you actually can't see it from any other viewpoint since it blends into the rock wall behind it.
With that in mind, I thought that you all might enjoy it if I recreated it in Lego :)
Ohhhh, my head. The trees...
Those fir trees were one of the most frustrating things that I've ever made. An hour and a half were poured into figuring out how to get them together and then keep them together. Don't know if you've ever noticed, but those goofy grass stalk pieces don't have bases that snap together very well... But now that I do have them together, what are your thoughts? Are these original trees or have you seen something like them before? Was it worth the pain and anger? Stuff like that...
A couple pics of the oh so ugly rock walls. Believe it or not, but Hahli inspired them with this build: http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/418586
Heh, mine's not even comparable, but sometimes that's the way the inspiration works...
The big imposing shot of it all.
So with college in and running my life, I was thrilled to get this build put together before things got all the busier and crazy. You probably won't see much building from me in the next 11 weeks, but hey, you never know ;)
Well to begin with I think I can say with certainty that this is your most complex and intricately designed creation to date, and with that being said, it is truly impressive. Also, I needed to find a MOC that was really special, because this is my 1000th comment on a creation here, so I cannot think of a better choice than to comment on an epic MOC built by an outstanding builder and person. You my friend have done it again. Congratulations on yet another fabulous-awesome-tastic model. Looking forward to seeing more. God bless :-)
Woah! Wowzaz! that's truly spectacular! Seeing this makes me feel like building LEGO again! not that I've stopped, but I don't build as much as a used to and I don't post my things on galleries anymore :P I've seen many versions of grass stalks for trees, but those ones you built would have to be the best! :D in my opinion absolutely worth the effort ;) I really like the way you build rocks it looks unique compared to the way most people construct them. Well done Promar. 5/5! :)
Well done, man! Very impressive! If in real life it's anything like that, then it would be cool. Btw, the link to Halhi doesn't work. Just saying. Can't wait to see what you come up with next. Keep it up!
Woah! I like the rockwork. It looks a little messy up close, but it looks really natural from the small picture (I forgot the word again!). I haven't seen the fir tree before, but let me tell you that I feel you pain :P
