After some consideration, I have made a couple of decisions on how I will go about building my Arkham Asylum MOC. It seems to me that in many large MOCs, detail is sacrificed in place of size, but I hope to avoid this in my model, keeping every tiny section of the asylum as detailed as possible. Hopefully this extra effort will pay off in the end with an impressive model.
I am of the opinion that the best way to do this is by constructing my MOC in modular sections which, much like the Lego Modular Buildings sets, will fit together using Technic pins as shown below. That is not the only advantage however, building in stages will also allow me to easily transport the model, which I hope will be displayed at one of the Lego Shows in the UK at some point in 2014. Last of all, building in this manner will mean that I can easily blog my progress once the building process has begun.
The first area I have planned out in detail is the area of the island in front of the asylum's main entrance, for which I will be making my first Bricklink orders over the next week or two. That plan however still needs some further touches in my opinion, so I will complete it, and then display that in my next post which should be expected in the next day or two.
