Help your fellow builder by leaving your feedback based on these three criteria:
- Originality: How original is this - never seen before?
- Building Techniques: How much skill do you think the creator of this MOC has, in terms of building technique?
- Details: Express how much you like the details of the build.
Your feedback is only shown to the creator as well as yourself. It is not available for other users to see. The creator won't see your user name.
I was inspired to design this model by news of its impending redevelopment, which I understand involves the demolition of many sections of the complex as it now (as of January 2014) stands. I'm a great fan of the building - not to mention rather a lot of the programmes that were produced there over the years (Doctor Who, Blue Peter, I Claudius, Fawlty Towers, Children In Need, Comic Relief, Look Around You, The Goodies, Tomorrow's World and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, to name but the tiniest of tiny fistfuls...)
Frankly, I'd love nothing more than to have seen it preserved as is, and kept in use as a rich and diverse 'dream factory' for decades to come. But in lieu of that possibility - or a personal fortune with which to make it so - I thought it would be nice to at least try and faithfully capture the iconic facade of Studio 1 and the 'doughnut', while recreating the '?' form as it now stands. A classic piece of Lego architecture that can double as a piece of wall art, with both commemorating its soon-to-be-lost 'definitive' form.
Did I mention it's full of curves, swirls, and awkward angles? As such, I'd expect it to be a very satisfying model to build, just as it's been enormous fun to try and do it some kind of justice as a Lego-based design.
I think it does, and I sincerely hope you do too: either way I'd love to hear your thoughts and feedback, and my thanks in advance should you choose to Support the project.
But thanks anyway for reading to the bottom!
