Hagia Sophia

Rocco Buttliere completed an outstanding 4,000 piece version of Hagia Sophia, located in Istanbul, Turkey. The earth tone palette (sand colors and grays) really makes the architectural components of the 1:650 scale model pop. Of note is the construction of the main dome, which uses Droid legs and sausages to complete the roof.

Gothic Church

I'm sure most folks have seen Legonardo Davidy's Gothic church, but it's too good not to blog. There are no words to describe the detail and texture of the model, so have a look for yourself below. (I will say I enjoy the spire!)

Sanctuary of Fátima

Da Silva created a beautiful microscale model of the Sanctuary of Fátima, located in Portugal. The model uses 1326 pieces and does a great job at capturing the details in curved colonnade and tower.

Mini Simpsons Builds

The Simpsons animated series has many memorable buildings, and play recreating some of the most famous locations. Included here are First Church of Springfield, Moe's Tavern, and Krusty Burger.


Chris Edwards expanded the LEGO game of Heroica to include two town-like themes. "Twilight Parish" focuses on a church and grave and "Snowed Inn" features a medieval scene.
