LEGO Castles — Ruins

What a wonder­fully atmos­pheric build by Patrick Massey.

It might sound as though a ruined castle would be a very boring scene to build out of LEGO but as these photographs show, that is far from the case.

Notice the clever build­ing to create the uneven stonework effect that makes it seem as though the castle could collapse at any moment. Then there’s the small pool of water and the sand over the stones. And of course the way that nature is creep­ing in and taking over.

On top of that it’s just been wonder­fully photographed. I know I keep harp­ing on this, but if you don’t photo­graph your model well then it doesn’t matter how skill­ful the build is, people won’t notice. Check out Massey’s Flickr page for even more photos and other LEGO builds.
