Hello dear fellows!

It's great to be back home here! Very Happy

To celebrate the new forums I have build MINI model No. 50! It's a jubilee for me and for the new forums. I wanted to post it earlier but couldn't get that rendering software runnning which I used for the special pic.

But now here it is: Cloud City!
Another model from the original trilogy which had to be made yet. Wink

Take this link:
MINI Cloud City

Take care and see you soon!

~ Chris

What can I say? I am always amazed at the amount of detail you mini-moc builders put into your designs. Another fantastic mini. I just saw this moments ago on Brickshelf, so I was glad to see it posted here. Nice work.

Great build! You've really got the knack of getting exactly the right combination of bricks to get the right form and suggest detail, even when Lego bricks are too big for the detail to be really there!

If you are looking for where to go next how about mini-buildings (Jabba's palace, Shield generator, Massassi temple etc. etc.)?

Here's to the next fifty Very Happy

Thank you for the comments! And thanks, roguebantha, for the suggestion of making mini buildings. Wink I will see if I can come up with something.

See you around,

~ Chris

Wow Chris, nicely done Cloud City mini. (as are all of your mini's btw). I like that you always include instructions. Smile but I was wondering... how did you "attach" the clear round piece at the bottom for a stand?

Hello dear lego community!

Thank you all for the nice words on the jubilee model!

... But I think I have to answer some questions, right? Smile


-SpaceManMort-, no there is no magnet on the inside that holds the city standing. Look at the instructions. There is no room left. Wink

Galenator, the clear round piece is only the stand for it. The model just leans on the wall with a 2-stud wide line by the yellow windows. So it touches the wall not only at one point, instead with a line of 2 studs. Because it would not stand alone on the round ball at the bottom, there is a single stand of some round bricks which keep it to on position. It does not stand very stable, hence I just used it to take a good photo. Smile

See you around,

~ Chris

Hey Chris,

Just saw this one - I guess I missed it when initially posted (I'm just now getting back here on a regular basis. Yet another mini triumph! It's again impressive how you fit so much detail - or almost "illusion" of detail, and I mean that in a good way - in such a small space. It's as if your deceptively simple design manages to accurately suggests all the minute features that can't be rendered at this level of size!

Keep it up (and I'm looking forward to your latest project's debut, since you treated me to the preview pic - looks even better than this one)!

-Brian

50! Already??? Shocked .

Great work, Chris. I would never have thought of the building techniques in that model, once again you amaze me.
