2010 (PERSONAL PROJECT)

MATERIALS: 1917 LEGO pieces

DESIGNER'S COMMENTS: The challenge in designing such a large model, especially one that is not designed to rest on a solid surface, is its strength. I designed a Technic frame inside the model that provided the strength all the way through. Each "module" then connected to the frame, thus the exterior design could concentrate more on aethetics without worrying about how it would support the rest of the model.

I relied on a lot of hinge pieces for this design. However if I were to do it again, I would create more contact points for each module so that the model can be more easily carried without anything falling off.
