Reverse-engineering LEGO Architecture Set #21024 - The Louvre.
I just spent three nights building the upcoming Louvre LEGO set using common parts from my collection. Along the way I discovered some unusual building techniques, new part colors, some rare parts, and even a completely new part. I posted some of my progress on the Upcoming Town Square topic, but thought others would like a sneak peek at this great upcoming set. (Sadly, it sounds like it isn't going to be released until September!)Looking at the how the glass pyramid is cleverly constructed using trans-clear plates and cheese. It is attached at an angle using hinges attached in one of many possible ways.Annotated preview of the parts likely used to build the courtyard.Here we see the new color for Telescope which is cleverly used as a column, and the new 1x2x2 panel with arch brick.I superimposed my model (left) over the real box art (right).
I am really excited about this set. It is the best addition to the series this year, and has great parts used in clever ways. It's great to see a new LEGO part introduced in the Architecture series as well. There are a few additional photos and analysis of the set at http://tomalphin.com
