National History Museum

17 comments

This project was created with Lego Digital Designer (LDD) and consists of almost 80,000 bricks (mainly 1x2 bricks).

 

This is a SNOT (Studs Not On Top) model and the studs you can see in the image of the main doorway are the only uppermost studs on show, leaving a smooth realism to this piece.

 

I visited the National History Museum on a recent trip to London and, although I went for the displays inside, stood in the queue to get in, I found myself in awe of the building itself. This is why I thought it would be fun to create the museum in Lego, after all, great architecture and Lego go hand in hand (if either actually had hands).

 

This model took longer than I originally anticipated, but does go into a fair deal of detail. I would like to eventually build the insides of this building sometime, though I may have to do that in modular sections, so as to keep the number of bricks and the ease down, for this reason this is only the shell of the building, there are no displays or minifigs with it, but they can be added.
