#575 MOC of the Week: 'Al Amarj Island' by Patrick Massey
This week's MOC feature is a gem from back in 2012, built by Patrick Massey on Flickr. Check out his post here for more pictures:
Upon setting my eyes on the model, it's a lot to take in; the natural beauty of the cliff combined with the grandeur of the castle-like building. I love the integration of the tower in the rockwork created using hinge plates, modified plates with studs on the side and 1x2 tiles to create the masonry effect.
The trees and subtle inclusion of green plates and plants to the dark bluish grey work looks great too, balancing the two colours perfectly. In fact, the whole colour palette blends incredibly well, as the tan building compliments the natural greens, greys and blues of the tropical island setting.
