Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster
For nearly as long as there have been LEGO bricks, there have been LEGO churches. There's just something about making a little temple for your plastic mini-figures to worship at that appeals to the spirit. Odds are you've gotten the email with photos of the amazing LEGO Church built by Amy Hughes - if you haven't, I recommend you go and take a look at what a true LEGO Master can do when she sets her mind to it.
I'm nowhere near Amy's class when it comes to Church Building - in fact, up until I started this project I had never tried to construct any sort of large scale LEGO building. (Normally I focus on spaceships and the odd superhero vehicle.) But when I learned of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster I knew that the time had come for me to try something new. A quick email to Bobby, the church's founder, and I had official sanction to "break ground" on perhaps my most radical departure from Spaceship building ever.
It took several months to complete this model - although a lot of that time was spent with a bad case of "builder's block" (Pun unintentional, I assure you.) I've no idea of the total number of bricks involved, but it did pretty much consume my collection of light grey parts.
