    Model of Hogwarts Castle

    created by Scorpius on 2012.11.06

    Main Section
    When I was younger, like many others, I was big fan of Harry Potter. Much has changed since then except one - the castle created by filmmakers in Harry Potter movies was and still is just amazing. So about 2 years ago, I've created model of Hogwarts castle in Lego Digital Designer (this old version can be found in LDD Gallery). Today I've decided to improve this model, render it and share it in here. In my opinion, Hogwarts castle deserves to have a place among the LEGO models. Any feedback - support or comment - is welcome. Thank you :)

    More info about model:
    The real size (x, y, z) of the model is 56.0 x 56.8 x 29.7 cm. It consists of about 2200 bricks. It took me about 10 hours to design old version, another 5 to improve it to this one. Due to different look of the castle in movies, this model is based on the castle from movies 5 and 6.

    Export: LDView
    Render: POV-Ray 3.6

    Here is the model from different angles:

    I've also created little additional models:
    The Quidditch Stadium
    The Hogwarts Express


    And please, there is one model of Hogwarts on this page already. I DIDN'T STEAL the idea. This is my original idea. As I wrote higher, I created this castle 1-2 years ago (old version without the base), it can be found in Lego Digital Designer Gallery. Thank you for understanding :)

    Congratulations on 1,000 Supporters!

    Those who read the Harry Potter novels years ago have dreamed of returning to Hogwarts - and with this project, we can. Best of all, we can take Hogwarts home with us and display it on our bookcases!

    Good luck as you journey (whether by broom, train, or flying car) toward 10,000 supporters!
