Microscale Lego Notre Dame Cathedral

Name of Model: Micro Notre Dame

Remember when you first took a Lego roofing element, stuck it on to of a Lego brick, and called it a house? Believe it or not, there's now an entire field of Lego building devoted to such "microscale" building. Creating distinctive landmarks, houses, spaceships, etc in extremely small scales requires using pieces in unusual ways. It also allows Lego fans to build things that would be incredibly large and difficut to make in a larger size. This Lego version of Notre Dame Cathedral, for example, fits on a common 15 inch square baseplate. Note the clever use of fences, goblets, and gears as archetectural elements!
