Why this build?
I am a huge fan of everything Sherlock Holmes, from the original books to the most recent films and especially this BBC series. I always build things I love, so this build made perfect sense to me.
This model has grown and developed a brick at a time over the last 4 months. A labour of love and moderation. Made of fun and love of the great show.
Since a young age Sherlock has been part of my life, and this continues as I play at adulting! As a Scotland Yard Detective I always tried to model myself on Sherlock rather than Lestrade.
