So I went to the Warner Bros. Studio Tour at Leavesden Studios today. I've gotta say, as impressive as the studio tour overall is (you've got the full Great Hall set, Hagrids hut, the Potions classroom, Gryffindor common room and bedroom, parts of the Ministry, more or less every major prop you can think of, Diagon Alley, Privet Drive, the Potter family house.......I could go on), in my opinion the most impressive part of the tour is the 1/24 scale Hogwarts "bigature" (favourite word the LOTR behind the scenes taught me). The thing is absolutely spectacular, and as soon as you turn the corner into the room it completely takes your breath away (actually made me a little emotional hehe).
Anyway, thought i'd post up the pictures of the model. I gotta be honest, you can't get right up to it, there's only a couple of places where you can get a camera right into it, and there was a lot of people there, but I tried to get a good spread of angles and lighting (they had a day/night cycle going on with the lights)
No pictures do the size of this thing justice. It's gotta be about 15 foot high, and about 20/25 foot in diameter.
Also i'm going to add these as links rather than in the actual post, i've dropped the images down to 2k, but they're still in the 2/3MB range:
Enjoy. If you want larger resolution images, let me know.
At some point i'll sort through the rest of the pictures and put up the prop and set pictures in the Screen Used Forum
