So much for me being a sci-fi blogger. The MOC in this post is another Castle build in a very similar style to the last one: a rustic, cobble-hewn style befitting of a rural countryside cottage.
I'm not a huge fan of some of the part choices for rocks (too round) or the transparent elements (for the stream and chimney smoke), but still found this definitely worthy of a blog mention because of the beautifully textured cottage walls and roof, and the use of color. Blue is not too common in the gray/brown/green-dominated Castle theme, but between the roof, stream, and bluebird, there's plenty of it here, contrasting nicely with the sienna trees, gray walls, and cool green earth.
Oh, and there's NPU: a feather, a minifig hand, and a joystick base for a bird? Ingenious. And John Snyder (jsynder002), if you're reading this, is that a minifig hairpiece used as a bird's nest? (Nice build by the way...)
