BlueWater Castle: una MOC da lasciare senza fiato

BlueWater Castle è una gigantesca Castle MOC del bravissimo César Soares. Come fa notare lo stesso autore nei commenti sul suo profilo Flickr, questa costruzione LEGO è veramente imponente con la base formata da ben 12 piastre 48×48 mentre in altezza arriva a sfiorare il metro! L’architettura dell’edificio è talmente ben studiata e realizzata che sembra quasi la trasposizione di un castello che non si fatica a credere possa esistere realmente, a parte magari il colore scelto per le torri e i tetti che gli danno un’aria più da castello fantasy. Anche la vegetazione che circonda il maniero è ricca di dettagli e varietà: gli alberi di diverso colore e forma si alternano con un ricco e sfaccettato sottobosco attraversato da un corso d’acqua, sono presenti ponti di diversa altezza e stile, ed inoltre incontriamo anche una piccola casetta di un artigiano che rifornisce il castello con i suoi prodotti grazie ad un carretto.

Se questa creazione vi è piaciuta, vi consiglio di dare un’occhiata anche all’altro lavoro di César Soares che ho già pubblicato: Residence Point Dume.

Vi riporto anche il commento dell’autore riguardo la sua creazione che rivela interessanti dettagli:

Hey everybody

I consider myself a castle builder, but I have never build a castle in the real sense of the word, so I thought it was about time I build one.

As I’m working on a big display to my LUGs expositions (comunidade 0937) and having access to a lot more parts I could go a little wild. 🙂

This MOC stands on a footprint of 4×3 (48×48) baseplates and is more than 3 feet high. I had a clear idea of what I wanted to do since the beginning, but of course some modifications and adjustments were made along the build, such as the positioning of the various towers on the main walls or the shape of the half-timbered sections.

A few facts and thoughts that I would like to share:

-Its viewable from the 4 sides and completely modular so it can easily be transported.

-Despite having access to more parts, I still had some limitations. So, for instance, I had to use more LBG 1×2 plates and 1×2 masonry dark tan bricks on the walls that I wanted but nevertheless I think it turned out Ok all the same.

-The colors used on the landscape terrain are not the ones that I would like to use, but again, due to its size, I had to use more common ones.

-I build this at home and took me about 250 hours in 50 or so days to build this MOC.

-I have no idea how many parts it’s made off! If someone as a rough idea, please let me now. But I can tell you that just on the landscape alone and on the castle interiors I used around 10000 2×4 bricks of various colors and on the walls I used at least 4000 round 1×1 bricks.

-The landscape was not my priority as it will sure suffer some changes and adding’s when integrated on the full display so I spend just 5 days on it and is not yet as I want him to look.

-Also, the trees are somewhat simple as I need them to be brickbuild (for easier transportation and also due to time restrictions) but I kind like them that way.

-Naturally, I’m a BIG noob in taking good pics and these are total crap (overexposed, poor lighting, poor focus). Taking reasonable ones was a huge #$#/&%$ pain and it looks so much better in person 🙂

Hope you all like it. It sure was an immense fun to build these one 🙂

I will try to upload more pics in a few days before I get this huge thing in card boxes 🙂

Oh and inspiration to the hundreds of castle photos that I found on the internet. 🙂
