Nice, apart from the fact you mentioned "Holland", something insulting. What is wrong with Holland? 1 it is no country, 2 it is completely ignoring the fact there are other places in the Netherlands than Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague. 3. it ignores 10/12 provinces. And in English it is The Netherlands, so unlike other languages there is no excuse in that.

I've added the missing photos. Most have deleted them from my photo folder. To build the Church part; need a bigger house!

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Very cool - is the first photo of the digital model? And even more impressive that it's dark flesh, that's not a colour you see every day. Also noticing the use of what I think are pickaxes in the wall, awesome parts usage.
The first foto is the design in LDD. You're right about the pickaxes. They represent the anchors which hold the wall to the wooden floor beams,just like in old buildings.

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Wow, that's impressive. I'm a little jealous of your dark tan brick bricks collection, amazing that you were able to make this at such a large scale! Really clean and accurate MOC, awesome work.
Thanks for your warm response. It took me a year to design with LDD, a year to find all the bricks and two weeks to build. The hardest bricks to find were the plate 1x2 and 1x3 in Medium Dark Flesh. Its not Dark Tan I've used but Medium Dark Flesh
