I am a Librarian in Wasatch County Utah. We just had a Lego Contest that I hosted at our library. I love Legos and have built houses since I was 14 . I wanted to be an architect when I grew up. For our Contest and Exhibit I wanted to build something amazing. I saw an article about your family in the paper and knew what I wanted to build.
I went to England the end of June 2013 (my 3rd time) and so I decided to do the London Temple. My best friend is from England and her family was sealed in the London Temple. She was married in the Preston England Temple (which I have visited too ) but I wanted to try the London Temple. It is to pretty much to scale and the best I could do. I am missing a few windows but, it is pretty true to the original building. I took the picture from the Internet and my late night drive by in the rain while in the UK to get the details. I am an adult so It should be fairly good!
It is maid out of 90% LEGO 10% K'Nex. I painted some of them white with a water based paint (which will come off when I soak it over night in water) The K'nex were either blue, red, green, or yellow. I also sprayed it was sparkle hair spray so It will wash off. I just wanted to add a little sparkle. I am going to do the Finland Temple Next...it is kind of the joke that is the temple I want to be married in because I live an hours drive from lots of temples and I think the Finland Temple is pretty cool. So I probably won't remove the paint for now.
Thanks for inspiring me!
