Slow and steady wins the race

Running on and off over the course of almost six months, the 2011 MOCOlympics contest over at MOCPages.com seemed like the longest one yet. For those not familiar with the contest, builders engage in a series of one-on-one knockout rounds, each with a specific building theme, overseen by a panel of judges. And some 250+ creations later, a single builder emerges victorious.

The final round was between Leda Kat and Jason Corlett, and the theme was Aesop's Fables. For her wonderful interpretation of The Tortoise and the Hare, the crown was ultimately awarded to Leda (aka Millie from New Zealand).

Mr Fox oversees the proceedings

The hare tears off, seemingly assured of his victory

And promptly takes a nap (on someone's house!)

Meanwhile, a mouse goes fishing

The hare eventually realizes his mistake, but it's too late!

What impressed me about this creation was that it was Leda's first non minifig based MOC, yet the characters in it are really well constructed and full of personality! The scene was also full of interesting little details. I really hope she explores this kind of building again in the future.
