Minifig-Scale Haunted House

Name of Model: Haunted House

Details: This gorgeous haunted house is perfect for Halloween. I think this is the first time I've seen someone use dry ice to get a smoky effect in their spooky photos. There are, of course, surprising building techniques too: check out the slanted bit of siding (all of which is tiles attached sideways, with a mix of old and new grey that achieves a perfect aged effect), and the windows that use tiles wedged between studs to create smaller panes. Then there are those roof lines, made with plates and wing elements on hinges. The use of claws and skeleton legs to make the various railings is another great touch. It's a masterpiece just in time for Halloween.
This is Saturday's model of the day
