The set of the classic BBC comedy, Fawlty Towers has finally been immortalised in LEGO.

Comedy fan and LEGO builder Nathan Feist recreated the iconic hotel lobby for the annual BrickFair LEGO convention in Virginia.

Not one to scrimp on the detail, Feist painstakingly created precise details from the show such as the reception desk, the broken antlered moose head, the fire extinguisher (made famous in the episode The Germans) and even the lobby’s tiling.

Feist had considered creating a number of settings from iconic shows before settling on the Fawlty towers design.

“I considered Number Six’s house from The Prisoner which I had eliminated early on as I had seen a good LEGO model of its exterior and other Village buildings made by someone else not long before,” he said.

“I had already seen a counter Strike map that recreated the Fawlty Towers hotel but I couldn’t find any LEGO models of the hotel posted online

“So I figured that if someone had only made a good virtual model of it, I should make an accurate physical model.”
