Hi all! This is my first topic, 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 meter), 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, 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 writing your comments , thx :)

The interior is nothing to do with the original, as I believe it would be 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 decided 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

Having been to the Hagia Sophia myself, I can say this looks awesome, and very faithful to the original. Great work!

Did you say you did this without spawning items?  Not even creative mode?

Holy Nether, that's... That's fantastic.
