Tiago Catarino's Bouncy Castle modded

Post by Bricksterdam »

So former LEGO designer Tiago Catarino had a great tutorial today:

I didn't have all needed parts on hand but I loved the idea so I went for my own version. Some things can be improved with a better color scheme, but this is what I had. Most difficult part was that I didn't want my floor to be flat since bouncy castles (at least when I was young) have the big lines of air pockets. So I wanted more texture on the underside. On top I've stayed true to his design.

For realism I also added a generator or what it's called to keep the castle from collapsing

I think the outcome is awesome! Very detailed and yes, that blower (generator combined with a reversed vacuumcleaner) is a really cool detail to add!

Aww, so cute! I totally agree that the 'floor' should not be flat but rather tube-ish.
Assemble. Fail. Take apart. Assemble. Fail better. Have fun.
