Building Lego Orthanc – Part 13 – the End!

 

It took me a few months but here we are, the last post devoted to building the Orthanc Tower in Lego, the biggest set I have ever built (and it will keep that record for quite a while I believe, at least until I move into a bigger place).

I encountered a small problem at that point. As my daughter is still too young to be around Lego (but she loves her Duplo), the only place where I can store the tower is on a shelf out of her reach. However, the tower is so tall that at the end of the previous building session, this happened:

No other choice at the moment but to have the tower in two parts until my daughter is old enough (or until we buy a bookshelf that’s not as high).

 

This final section of the tower was unfortunately not the most interesting to build, as it consisted solely in the four spikes that play a big part in making the tower so cool looking, but they’re just not that interesting to build (and they’re a bit repetitive as the same thing needs to be done four times).

Now, I need to try to take nice pictures of the completed tower. In the meantime:

And that’s all of the building of my Lego Orthanc.

I know, this wasn’t the most interesting series of post, but as you know if you’ve read since the beginning, the goal was mostly to practice taking pictures of Lego, especially minifigures.

My next Lord of the Rings project is coming soon. This one should be interesting for everyone (I hope).
