Mos Eisley Spaceport from Star Wars

Name of Model: Mos Eisley Spaceport
Created for an event in Leicester, 2007 (does anyone have more info on this one?)
Found at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/blue-moose/sets/72157600177595763/
Details:
This is a detailed and complete reproduction of Mos Eisley from Star Wars. I'm not a huge Star Wars buff, but according to the website above, this location is used in two of the episodes ("A New Hope" and "Return of the Jedi"). The first thing you notice is just the sheer size of this thing. It is enourmous. The next thing that sticks out is the way all the curves are done - the LEGO® technique here is amazing. There must be thousands of tan bricks in here - and those still aren't too easy to come by. It really looks like every spaceship and building has been represented (any Star Wars fans care to comment on the completeness of this one?) - there are even minifigs and space monsters (probably to make it look like a particular scene from one of the movies). Make sure to have a look at all of the pictures - there's something to see in all of them.

As an added bonus, some unrelated Star Wars sculptures are also included in the Flickr gallery above.
