CCC XV West Coast Tower

Postby Toltomeja » Sun Nov 19, 2017 9:08 pm

My first entry to CCC (Misc). And a big gray thing.

The model was slightly inspired by a picture from Citadels card game. But, as always, imagination soon came in and altered the initial idea. Finally, I decided to make it a signalling tower on seaside rocks.

Neat mix of colors using bley, dark bley, and dark tan. The vines add a lot of interest as well.
Very impressive tower :)

Love Citadelles, the cards illustrations are always beautiful :)
Nice MOC, although I find that the cliff/tower transition is too suddden. Maybe moving it back a few studs or making the grassy part a bit steeper would help? Anyway, love the olive green vines and the wooden top of the tower!

Nice job! Some wonderful color combinations here! :) I really like the rocks down below that blend with the olive green.! Good luck! :)

Using the hot dog piece to keep the crane connections legal was inspired NPU. Excellent tower overall too, though I agree with the above comment about the abrupt transition between rock cliff and tower.

Great MOC, good luck in the CCC!
