They say the bigger MOC, the longer the description... Don’t expect a brief one now, then. :)

This MOC is rather an OOC (Our Own Creation) – the build’s been constructed by me and Legofan (his Flickr here) together. Intended for zbudujmy.to LUG’s summer exhibition in Swarzewo, Poland. It will be displayed there up until the end of August.

Whole construction is 8 baseplates of surface and about 70cm in height in the highest point. The hillside town has been largely inspired by Mont St Michel, France.

Frankly speaking, it is the biggest MOC I’ve ever created. At first I tried to make it fully modular to make it easier to transport it to exhibition place 700km away. However, my strong will (and modularity as well) ended soon and all has got one solid construction.

The hill is empty inside, apart from a chaotic (and pretty charmful in result!) scaffolding of technic bricks.

At last I ended up tearing it to about 90 separate pieces to ensure safe transport. At first it was frightening to see all the mess I would have to rebuild at the exhibition place, but having a proper photo documentation from the WIP stage and all the sections numbered, the work was as easy as building a set with instructions :)

Feel free to see the photos from when it was still at WIP stage. I've got them only here by now: Dropbox.

And in case you wanted to see the... innards:

Huge thanks to Legofan for a great adventure building (hope this is not the last time) and rafalholub (https://www.flickr.com/photos/rafalholub/) for beautiful photos.

Oh, the castle chapel is St Stud's Chapel of course!

An excellent creation. I really love the beauty of this village. It is a picture-perfect peaceful medieval scene. The Castle looks great and the village buildings lovely as well. I really love how this is a lake/ocean front MOC. It reminds me of something tucked away in the countryside. A little slice of heaven. :)

Happy Building,

Stellar job. The layering of the overall build is very impressive.
