EDINBURGH Lego builders are reaching the end of their Brick City project.
We visited the exhibition at Riddles Court on the Royal Mile at the beginning of the Fringe when only small parts of the city had been constructed.
But now the model just needs a few more pieces to be complete.
Professional Lego builder Warren Elsmore, who’s running the project, said: “We’ve had a really good time, it’s been a lot of fun and a lot of very hard work.
“It’s been nice to see it from the other side rather than just being an Edinburgh resident, being a Fringe participant!”
The team have been working on the build every day throughout the Fringe, with their workshop open to visitors to have a look around.
“It’s been tiring working through the Fringe but really fantastic, we’ve got lots of stuff built,” says Warren’s wife and fellow builder Teresa.
“Actually running a Fringe show is difficult, there’s a lot of things you don’t realise.
“At the beginning of the month you’re trying to work out how it all works, how the traffic flow of people comes through and what they want to know.
“You have to do those first few days and adjust your performance to give people the best experience.”
The exhibition has been extended to Monday August 28, with tickets reduced to £5.
The venue is open 10am to 5pm today and on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.
Warren is also appearing at the Awesome Bricks exhibition at the National Museum of Flight this weekend.
