Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry

Description

On videos and forum threads about the new LEGO set 71043 <i>Hogwarts Castle, </i>one of the most common comments I read was (paraphrasing here) "This set is awesome, but just imagine if it was the whole castle!" 

Well my fellow LEGO enthusiasts, you need no longer only imagine. This here is my model of all of Hogwarts Castle, built in trophy figure scale, the same as the new set 71043. This is by far my largest and most detailed model to date, with over 27,000 pieces, but aside from some of the tower roofs, I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

As with all my models of Hogwarts, I've based this one off of the large studio model at Warner Bros. Leavesden Studios. If any of you want to take a closer look at this model by downloading the ldraw or Studio files, or look at more images of the model, all of that can be found here:
