#530 TECHNIQUES: Technique analysis of ‘The Castle of Captain Sabertooth’

For today's post I wanted to take a look at some of the techniques used in this impressive build by Poul-Erik Borre on Flickr. Check out his MOC, ‘The Castle of Captain Sabertooth’, here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/166989939@N03/46029060071/?fbclid=IwAR1hwYLbVR7zPAbiXpUVdKU4Lam4rviqXdqgzvHOjfh6r_J7NLfgBs3z9P4



The first technique to breakdown is that arch, which is probably created using the ever-useful flex tubes. These flexible parts can be bent and clips can be attached, which is how the curved shapes is achieved. It shares the technique with the other pictured by Barthezz Brick, which you can check out here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/151790575@N05/


The second technique is the awesome masonry texture the builder has been able to create. This is produced by using a specific arrangement of SNOT bricks, as seen in the picture. The attached tiles can be positioned so that a constant gap is left between each piece, and the effect is fantastic.
