Catriona's Web Site
Updated February 2007
This web site belongs to Catriona Laing. She's a kid in Melbourne, Australia.
Here are some Lego models, much inspired by HarryPotter, and some flights of fancy.
Harry Potter riding on a Thestral!
The Robber's Retreat - click on the picture to see if he's home...
Catriona's version of Dumbledore's office. The stairs actually swivel!
Ginny at the Owlery ... another original model.
The Slytherin common room. Click on the picture to open the door ... if you DARE!
Not a Harry Potter model at all ... This one is the Tower of Barad-Dur (from Lord of the Rings), made by Dad. Look out, Sauron can see you! The "eye" really swivels!
Dad's Lego homage to that great novel - yes, you guessed it, DUNE! Oops, that's a Mega Bloks guy.

It's ... Buckbeak, from "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban"! Who needs complicated sets when you've got a Big Box of Lego!
"Hagrid's New Pet" - she constructed "Hagrid" out of various other people (the Troll's jacket, and Dumbledore's hair). Neat. The important lesson here is, build whatever you want, and don't get stressed about missing a crucial piece. When you're a kid, at least.
The Palace - made from the pieces in the "Grand Tournament" set in the "Knight's Kingdom" range (which has been great fun to build and play with, by the way). The stairs fall off a lot - Catriona needs to learn about reinforcing her models where they are a bit flimsy. Still, she did it with no help at all.
A dragon - inspired by a drawing she saw, and made in great enthusiasm. Gee, I hope she is appreciating having this web site ...
If you like this web site ... mmm ... go and build something with Lego. Or any other good building toy, really!
