i recently went to Harry Potter studios in the UK. 
they have the actual model they used in the films, so i thought i would share some of the photos with you. 
the detail is unbelievable, i was stunned at the quality and then even more stunned when my wife said "it needs a model railway"

Thanks for sharing those with us Jimmy. I wonder how long it took to knock that up? I know how long it would have taken me, certainly wouldn't have been a couple of hours in the evening and a Sunday!

According to the information at the studios, it took 50 set designers 6 months to build and the same 50 to maintain it for the ten years of filming.

They say that it's the set designers pride and joy their jewel in the crown.

I say it's bloody amazing it's also bloody massive

That's really interesting. I had always assumed that in this day and age they simply used computer graphics, so I was surprised to such a huge model. Thanks for posting.

It's part of the Harry potter studios on the outskirts of London in the uk.

If anyone had ever watched and enjoyed the Harry potter films then I surge at a cost to the studios it is truly a magical day (excuse the pun)
