Sydney Opera House

The Sydney Opera House is probably one of the hardest buildings to make in LEGO due to its compound curves. All attempts I can remember seeing have used plate sculpting which gets the shape right but not the smooth texture of the shells. Until now!

Bad Leo has used a building technique that is nothing short of brilliant to construct the compound curves. I believe this is similar to how the real opera house is constructed. The end result is amazing.

    I agree Catsy, I don’t get it either. I’ve got to experiment with it and steal that mojo though. Aside from the flashy new technique, the base is really simple but perfect.

    Clever techique… if only the outside surface was a little smoother, it could be a great one.
