Gilligan's Island


300 Supporters! Yowza.

So many, many people in the comments section of my build have been talking about the water/ overall island look. If I just ended this description here, the comments section will be asking "What is that picture of, Islandguy1?!?! !?!?!??" So, instead of ending this here, I'll explain it to you. To make a long story short, I flipped the build over so you can see the bottom. Anyway, here's how I made the water: first, I made the waves like you would make a wall, building up rather than sideways. Using 1X1s with studs on the top and one of the sides and with sand colored bricks, I created a frame that interconnected with the water for my sand to sit on. Sound complicated? (its not, just try it.) If you look at where the water stops you can see the frame. (and yes, those are LEGO System Egypt bricks, I had to use what I had) Then after the frame was done, I built the sand and plopped it on top. This took too many attempts, but I finally got it to work. Then I assembled and placed the S.S. Minnow, foliage, the Minifigures and placed them all on top of the sand. Lastly, I made all the relics from episodes. So that's how I built this set! (If you've read this far, give yourself a pat on the back.)

To celebrate, I wanted to add a bonus scene that isn't part of the main build. This is from Season 3, Episode 19: "Lovey's Secret Admirer." The Professor builds a lie detector and, of course, hilarity ensues.
