But there is another thing. If you look closer at my shop, you’ll notice that I put it in another way. I inverted them. This adds depth in my model, giving it an interesting look.

#2; Small Pieces+ Small Buildings= Big Details!

Small pieces in big Lego® MOCs makes small, tiny, details to be enjoyed. Shrink buildings down, and small pieces become big details. If you look at the courthouse, you’ll notice I used several small pieces, including clips. They being small, they turn into decoration, creating a Greek look.

#3; Using wings as ceilings

Our last tip of the day is using wings. I needed a Greek Parthenon look for my courthouse. So, I used some wings to create the feel of a pointed roof.
