    I cant believe that you even did it the interior. Not only is the outside impressive enough but the interior is the icing on the cake..

    i LOVE legos. i thinkg that is what started the whole building phase for me. legos then modle cars and planes. then wood working, real cars, and now the aquarium. I love the aquarium because i can build things and it involves biology ( also a major passion) and i scuba dive. this hobby is like my perfect storm. and it gives me a place to spend all my money : )

    No cats; just one adorable little bichon-chihuahua fluffball for a dog. :D She's destroyed some bricks, though! Gnaws those Legos to bits! My Hermione minifigure was the most recent victime... :grumble:

    Well, I was going to take it to an annual competition in Orlando, but it's gotten so big that I'm kinda afraid to move it. It's looking like it's just going to be a personal enjoyment thing...but we'll see.

    When I built it, the interior was my main focus. I made the castle so that walls/roofing removes so that you can access the interior of the castle. :mrgreen:

    Not recently. Otherwise it would be sitting on top of a 2ft. lego cliff that will one day be in the works. :mrgreen:

    I've been building with Legos since I was a toddler. When the Harry Potter Lego sets came out, I bought and built pretty much all of them. They were great sets, but they left me unsatisfied; I wanted something more realistic. And, thus, MY Hogwarts was born! :mrgreen:

    One day I probably will. You all will see me sitting next to Hogwarts in the Lego Magazine! ;-)

    That's truly impressive! I would NEVER have the patience, let alone the TIME to build that. REALLY COOL!

    me <-- Jealous

    I've never been good at building stuff with Legos, unless it was a pre-fab thing. I've had legos since I was very little. My brothers were very good at building stuff, and now my son is awesome at it (he even built a model of Mario form Nintendo -- correct colors and everything!).

    Thanks for sharing your creation! Can't wait to see cliffs!


    What's that got to do w/ the legos? LOL!!!

    LOL...it's not what you think...it's not an exact replica. I was more impressed with the fact that he built Mario from memory, but no details...just the shape and colors of the character...but also the fact that he attached to lego guys' legs to Mario's legs, so that mario actually has movable legs. He was supposed to be up there cleaning his room Hehehhe. He's 7 years old. When I was 7, I could only make a square house LOL. He's got aptitude, though. He can copy a car from one of those lego kits, rearrange it completely so it's not the same car, but yet still looks like a car. They never last cuz little brother comes along and takes it apart. I swear, there's one part of this house that has nothing but lego heads, arms, and legs. Most of our lego guys are incomplete.

    I figured there was no way she could accomplish this if there were cats in the house.
