Sébastien Cuomo didn't expect the 3000 notifications that animated his phone when he posted a photo of his latest LEGO build on Facebook. Although countless iconic buildings have been replicated in plastic and in miniature thanks to the versatility of LEGO, comparatively few landscapes have been built brick by brick. For Sébastien, the Mont Blanc Massif provided the perfect architectural challenge: 20km x 16km of glaciers, granite, meadows, forests and urban landscapes were topographed layer by layer to create a 160 x 128 'stud' model built more-or-less to scale. While many pined for the outdoors during lockdown, Sébastien built his very own mountains in miniature at home.
This has brightened a dull, rainy day.
Really appreciating the increasing rate of LEGO themed articles. Hope this trend continues!
Amazing. Small point - the angled tooth of the Dent Blanche? Did you mean the Aig Blanche de Peuterey?
Dent du Géant maybe?
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.
Excellent! Come on someone on UKC - a to-scale model of Cloggy!
I can't wait for Sebastien to get around to Baildon Bank.
That is flipping brilliant!
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?

I would love to see something similar for other mountain ranges or areas. Fitzroy and Cerro Torre would be my pick.
> Or U2
You think 'everyone' thinks U2 are brilliant???
No. I just couldn’t pass up an opportunity to slate them!
> 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!
