In this section we help promote LEGO Cuusoo idea’s to help them reach the 10,000 likes needed for their idea to get created! This week we feature the idea called “Model of Hogwarts Castle” created by Scorpius. Here’s what the creator had to say about the idea:

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.

Editor: Lego Digital Designer (converted to LDraw)
Export: LDView
Render: POV-Ray 3.6

Here is the model from different angles:
