    I was quite disappointed in this set, it was one of my Lego Ideas submissions which I developed on and off over a 12 month period just to prove that a reasonable model could be made at a small scale. Just using six arch pieces for the main arch is the major sin in this set. I only considered submitting the project after I found a way of creating internal detail of the arch. I even found a nice way of creating the detail around the top of the monument using the underside of 1×12 ands 1x 6 plates. Obviously the ideas project is dead but if you are interested there are full building instructions andphotos of the final design in the ideas project’s updates section. I am looking out for the nameplate on the secondary market to complete my model.

      Your LEGO Ideas post was definitely discussed as how they “could have done it better” when the official set was announced.

      What was your final part count? I doubt it was too much higher than the official set – maybe 650 instead of the official set’s 390 parts?

    I couldn’t agree more! IMHO I feel that Lego Architectural series — which as a 46 year old architectural tour guide in NYC is the series that brought me back into the Lego world — has gone from exciting to boring, and maybe that’s because I AM a 46 year old man. However no matter if you’re going for kids or my age, the scales are just too small to do something that is fun and interesting. This is a perfect example.
