Sébastien Cuomo with his creation.

Sébastien Cuomo didn't expect the 3000 notifications that animated his phone when he posted a photo of his latest LEGO build on Facebook.

While many pined for the outdoors during lockdown, Sébastien built his very own mountains in miniature at home.

Amazing. Small point - the angled tooth of the Dent Blanche? Did you mean the Aig Blanche de Peuterey?

Dent du Géant maybe?

In reply to 67hours:

Yeah two stories about LEGO in under two weeks! We must be heading into lockdown again...

Dent du Géant, of course. Not sure why Blanche came out. Too many teeth!

That is very cool, I might see if I can do something similar for my island home.

Do ever get that thing where everyone thinks something is brilliant and you just don't get it at all but you don't want to say something because all your friends like it and you can see how much joy they get from it so you don't want to taint it?  Y'know, like David Bowie?

In reply to UKC Articles:

I would love to see something similar for other mountain ranges or areas. Fitzroy and Cerro Torre would be my pick.

No. I just couldn’t pass up an opportunity to slate them!

In reply to Iamgregp:

> Do ever get that thing

I do. But I keep quiet, and don't make snide comments about 'do you ever get that thing'...

It's a joke about a lego mountain mate, don't take everything so seriously!
