DESCRIPTION

Design by -Felix- from GRUNDSTEIN.

Have you ever wondered how a Gothic Lego cathedral would look if it were as large in relation to a Minifigure as a real cathedral is to us? This build is your answer! A regular Lego minifigure has a scale of roughly 1:42, so this cathedral, with an interior height of 89 (35“) cm, is equivalent to a real cathedral with an interior height of 38 m (124‘) and is equally as detailed as a real Gothic cathedral!

 For comparison: The Cathedral of Strasbourg has an interior height of 32 m(105‘) in the central nave, the Cathedral of Reims in France has an interior height of 38 m (124‘), and the Cologne Cathedral even reaches 42 m (138‘).

To prevent this build from exploding into several million parts, I decided to only create one slice as a cross-section. This allows you to see the inner workings of a cathedral—how all the parts look that you, as a normal visitor, never get to see. The tops of vaults, the walkway in the triforium, and the bats under the roof—all places your minifigures can visit.

This slice of a cathedral is best placed in front of a window. There, a beautiful play of sunlight, colorful rays from the windows, and crisp shadows from the flying buttresses can work their magic to make it look incredible!

The build consists of over 41,000 parts in 606 lots, weighs over 25 kilograms (55 lb), and is 102.4 cm (40.3“) wide (4x 32x32 base plates), 26.4 cm (10.4“) deep, and 131.4 cm (51,7“) high. The interior from floor to vault is 89 cm (35“) high, and the central nave is 32 cm (12,6“) wide. The base is strong enough to allow the build to be carried around by two people in one piece, or you can take it apart into its modules to allow for easier transportation.

The instructions consist of 5 PDFs with 949 pages, including part lists for each module and an XML file for ordering the parts, all created with Studio.

If you plan on building this cathedral, be informed that this build is beyond complex at some points and features a lot of building techniques the average Lego builder has never seen before probably. I had to change the build direction left, right, and center all the time, and you will assemble modules that consist of thousands of parts and dozens of submodels, themselves consisting of several submodels. So, if you want to build it, you really need to know what you are getting yourself into. The instructions have been test-built. A lot of work went into making the instructions as clear as possible, despite the complexity, and once you are through it, the result is breathtaking.
