Victorian III

Name of Model: Victorian III
Created by: SoftaRae
Found at: MOCPages
Details: SoftaRae has a series of Victorian Houses based on some old houses in San Fransisco called "the painted ladies" for their variety in color. At first glance, it may be hard to distinguish that this is actually a creation made of LEGO bricks. Take a closer look. SoftaRae includes a number of close-ups at MocPages. And notice that this is Victorian III (Roman Numberals for 3) - this is the successor to the Victorian II featured here previously, and there's also one earlier building to look at in this series.

Looks like we've got a lot of rare pieces & colors in here. I like the use of tiles on the exterior walls to give the sense of wood paneling. Note also the cheese wedge used decoratively around the windows. Not to mention the intricate use of 1x1 cylinders on the door and windows to look like colored glass.
