#667 TECHNIQUES: Analysis of ‘Tour de Paris'

It's not often that there's a MOC I could look at for a long time and not get bored, but this build called 'Tour de Paris' by Markus Rollbühler on Flickr is definitely one of them. Today we'll be taking a look at some of the ingenious techniques and part uses. We've cropped down the MOC to analyse some of the techniques but you check out the full MOC on Flickr here:

Where to start! There's so much going with this MOC; especially that awesome tree design! Despite being very part intensive, it's an ingenious build featuring flex tubes and mechanical claws, the latter having holes in them that are the perfect size to connect the green feathers that act as leaves. A unique balcony is created with keys left on their sprues and a realistic yet simplistic masonry pattern is created with 1x1 SNOT bricks and tiles. Because 1x1 SNOT bricks are used, the tiles can be positioned to create very small gaps between them.

Make sure to check out the full MOC using the link above and follow Markus if you're not already!
