Well, I've built a mini version.
About a year ago, I was moving my Architecture model of #21013 Big Ben, and I idly wondered how big the full building would be at that scale.
So I started building it, to find out. The answer is, a lot bigger than I thought!
After building on and off (mostly off) for the past year, it's now finished.
Unlike the original version, I have no idea how long I spent building this one, it doesn't split down into sections for transporting, and I have no idea how many elements are in it. If I had to guess, I'd say about 20,000 - 30,000 pieces.
I do know it's heavy!
Oh, and it measures 85cm (33.5in) x 50cm (20in).
More photos are available on my Flickr album.
That looks top-notch— really nice work!
i thought you jack knifed the truck, then i realised it was just the box. the angle threw me.
I usually only motorize large sets, although occasionally I've temporarily motorized small sets, or driven a number of smaller sets off of a single motor. Hedwig is so fantastic though that I think that may be the first sub-$100 set that I get its own permanent motor for.
It looks much nicer than the official image on the bag, and it's far far better than the Lambo polybag #30342 from last year.
Plus you have to really pay attention to the instructions, as there's no parts call-out boxes, and no outlines of what pieces have been added!
They are also fantastic display pieces and look great together.
Only the Fett man to do, then the anticipation waiting for the details of what's coming this year.
Next builds from the lot will be classic space...
The only part missing is the Obi Wan Kenobi "ghost" microfig, but that is on its way. It was also impossible to source the Slope, Curved 4 x 2 x 2 Triple in white so, as suggested here, I replaced those with 2x2 bricks and Slope, Curved 1 x 2 x 1 in white, which worked perfectly and doesn't spoil the overall look at all. I also had to replace the Tile, Round 1 x 1 Quarter in Dark Tan with a mix of the same part in Tan and Reddish Brown, as that part is also nearly impossible to source, having only appeared in #41627 Luke Skywalker & Yoda.
On to SW: RotJ next!
I also knocked together @JKBrickworks Tensegrity Sculpture:
A very simple build, but I love it! :-)
I built the same tensegrity sculpture a while back, but from random colours I had in my unsorted brick pile, one day I'll do it properly.
