If you enjoyed last week’s episodes of Quarantine Creations, with all the planes, jets and hot air balloon mini builds, then I’m sure that you’ll enjoy these next round of building activities with Tyler. Whether you’re new in the LEGO hobby or a veteran builder already, these building activities offer some respite from the quarantine jitters that most of us may be experiencing. And for this week, Tyler brings back those nostalgic feelings of early LEGO fandom while building castles using the most common LEGO pieces around. Watch this.
As typical of Tyler, he takes the extra mile of teaching and explaining some of the building techniques involved in these creations, and detailing the needed parts for this mini builds. Check out the following parts and see if you have them in your collection.
I like how this castle turned out, especially the way on how some of its aesthetics were cleverly built at such a miniature scale. The use of the 1×1 Angular Bricks (I refer to them as ‘washing machine’ bricks) for the windows is a creative workaround in providing windows for the portion of the tower. Likewise, the use of the 1×1 brick with handle, and 1×1 brick with holder to create that cross effect for the window is pretty impressive. Some parts are missing from my collection but I think it can be replaced with other suitable pieces.
Stay tuned this week for more cool and fun builds.
