Although the model is at a very small scale, it covers a lot of ground - 6 LEGO baseplates' worth. The ground leading up to the mountain is cleverly sculpted, and the mountain itself features some well-placed vegetation.

As if that wasn't enough, the front gates have also been expertly crafted in minifig scale:

Hey, thanks for highlighting my Minas Tirith! All of my Tolkien creations can be found on my website, Bricktales. In theory I'm illustrating all of the Lord of the Rings, but the project has been sadly dormant for almost two years.
