Hagia Sophia

Level 7 : Apprentice Architect
Hi all! This is my first upload, i hope u like it
First of all I want to apollogyze for my probably bad english D

This is a 1:1 escaled model of Santa Sophia of Istanbul (1 block = 1 nmeter), the escale works at last for the height of the central dome and the sole

EVERY BLOCK HERE was picked up by me, only me, LEGIT, and without using any /give command, i've seen some people works that really look great but they use like 1523 diamond & gold blocks, which obviously was given to them with the /give command, my work was done mining everyblock, and using a lot of ovens XD (and shearing LOTS of sheeps!! :@ ), I beg u to think about that when writingn your comments , thx

The interior is nothing to do with the original, as I believe it would nbe really annoying to try to make it look similar working with 1 meter blocks XD , so I used my imagination and tried to do my best

Just in case any one of you know something about Hagia-Sophia, ive ndecided not to do the little half domes (called "exedras" in spanish, dunno in english) just cuse they were so tiny as the apse, but in a turned angle, almost impossible to make it look good.

So here is my work, it tooks my around 2 months to complete it so I hope u like it! D
I try some textures, but original textures is still the best for me
Progress: 100% Complete

Wow, thats amazing! Especially considering you made it all by hand, this is a very accurate representation of the Hagia Sophia, at least as accurate as it can get in minecraft. I like the coloration much better than some of the other, MCEdited versions, especially with the bricks and stuff. Great Work!
