I love your Laputa robot maodel by the way. I discovered that movie quite by chance one day and fell in love with it. I even managed to see it on a big screen at the cinema and it was stunning. :D

Here is the little Agatean scene I did for my brother.

I'll erase Two Flowers and the photographic sky background
for the final picture in my gallery.
You like it? Any suggestions?

Thanks!
You saw it on a big screen?!? I'm jealous!
Hayao Myasaki movies are flawless anime! (Exept perhaps "Howl's Moving Castle"...)
I went to the Ghibli Museum in Tokyo 3 years ago: 'was wonderful!

They used to hold an animation festival every year in Cardiff and that's when I saw it. The scenes in the young lad's village were apparently based on a visit to the South Wales coal mining towns Hayao Myasaki once made. :D

Oho! I didn't know that. It's a good thing that I came here! ;-)

I've nearly finished a part of the library (it's impossible to do it entirely as it's huge and evolves through different universes...)
some details are missing (as bananas...) but I'm pretty happy with it, so I wanted to show it to you first.
What do you think about it?

Love your stuff, Captainsmog, they're terrific!

You've re'kindled my faith in Lego, as an inspirational tool. I always believed that Lego was for expanding the imagination [and youve prooved that]. I was getting disappointed with Lego, making all thos pre-designed, themed kits, e.g. Star Wars stuff etc.

Keep up the good work.
and a hard boiled egg!

Wow!...
Thanks for such a big compliment!
It incites me to improve my work.

I showed that work to my brother who gave me
numerous good suggestions to perfect it
(Such as octarine flames out of some places and
runes and writings on the books...).

Looks terrific! :D (Agatean scene too :wink: )
A poster outside one shop urged people to Dig For Victory, as if it were some kind of turnip.

I'm working on a more impressive version of the library: higher,
more shelves, more books and... more bananas! ;-)

Stay tuned :wink:

By the way...

I'm currently working on on LEGO 71-Hour Ahmed's torso
and wonder what colour it could be*... Any idea?
*Knowing that his headgear can be red or white...

Mostly scar tissue I'd say. :lol:

I'd imagined him wearing black robes and headdress. :?
