The gold foil on the pile works really well.

________________________________
I think this perfectly falls into the definition of technique. A method of building. Certainly it fall more into the definition than a simple connection; all too often LEGO builders (especially the types whom soley try to impress others) call the odd little connections that happen within a LEGO build, techniques. Certainly they can be such but Avalon, pictured here, shows an entire method of building with this technique.
It's well executed. It's attracive colours. It employs a nice shape. It's a novelty. Take heart Spacers and Train-heads, connectionless isn't about to usurp SNOT building.
Nice 'build' Seircon and Coral! Bravo, I enjoyed look at this probably as much as you had fun building it.
