4506 Ocean observer
While this set has many parts, it also has many large groups of colors. To make a model and get the color scheme to play out nicely you have to reduce the size of the build. This model is a very nice submersible and while it is not visible on the picture, the observatory on the top has an identical twin on the bottom, making this build a bit more special. To get it to work with the available parts I had to do a minor trick. It was also how I built the model: I started at the top and worked my way downward, beginning with the observatories. I then build the different layers of brick around it. The arms on the front side are optional. I always try to give a design as much extra as I can while maintaining the overall look and feel. These seemed a good addition although I liked the model already before I did so.
