Micro Abu Simbel – Egypt

Jonathan Gilbert (aka Shmails) built a micro Abu Simbel, the famous temple carved into the side of a mountain in Egypt for the MCCVI over at Classic Castle. These micro constructions always fascinated me. I love the techniques to get those great details, such as the dozen of levers to represent the boat’s oars.

See more pictures at his gallery.

Pharaonic dilemma

Peter Shutter illustrates a funny situation where the all-mighty pharaoh has to choose what he will wear today. Beside the cool scene, he made an interesting building with a classic Egyptian style.

Egyptian layout – How the pyramids were built

This incredible Egyptian layout was assembled by group of builders Robin, Nathan, David, Brickbaron, Andrew, and Scott. The layout includes a small town, a set of cool boats, civilians working on their farms, a temple and, of course, the master piece of this layout – the great pyramid under construction.

Egypt goes shopping

Also part of the PLUG‘s exhibition on El Corte Ingl√™s this great Egyptian layout was built by Fernando Correia and Paulo Castanho. I really liked the avenue where we see the pharaoh on its chariot and the amazing pyramid with the sarcophagus hidden in its interior.
