The built prototypes.

These are the prototype designs, complete with their multi-colored glory.

The offering table, will be all yellow, and there will be ten of them.

This was the original sheep design, but was rejected in favor of the one below. I did keep the head. I liked the use of the hands for ears.

The sheep, which will, naturally, be white or black(doesn't count as blemished), without the blue pieces.

Here is the High priest, a "regular" priest. I made the decals using photoshop, and applied them to the turban(a lego cook hat), body, and legs. The shoulders pieces are lego with gem stones glued on.

This was a prototype for the capitals on the pillars, and has since been replaced with a, I think, better design.

This is one of the oxen/cow, which will support the sea. In the finished build everything will be yellow.

The Cherubim, which will sit in the HOly of Hollies. You can see the hands on the wings in this picture, along with the size.

Lastly, two pictures of a designed ark. This is the final design, but in the wrong colors.

Solomon's Temple update #1.

I began this project back in March. I designed the majority of it on Leocad, which allows you to build with legos on the computer. I designed for maybe a month, and began getting ready to order the pieces, (all 34,000 of them). So here are the cad pictures...
The tables and the lampstand(there will be ten)
One of the bronze pillars that will stand outside the entrance, the weird things off to the side are the petals of the lily-shaped capitals.
The main gate

The main interiorThe Ark of the Covenant
One of the wash basins(there will be ten)

The main building,featuring removable roofs for the 3 levels of storage rooms along the outside,
and removable roofs also for: the vestibule, main room, and holy of hollies.

The sea, which will be supported by twelve cows(not shown)

One of the cherubim that will stand in the Holy of Hollies

And finally, the altar that sits in front of the building.

Forgot to upload this earlier.

This is the inside of the Holy of hollies,

and this is the "outside" of the Holy of Hollies, showing the entrance, which will be in front of the veil, also note the red and orange will be yellow in the finished build.

The entire setup(with all the components) will be 3' wide, and quite-a-bit-more-than-that in length, (in other words, unknown).
