Lake-town (also known as Esgaroth) was so under-appreciated in the Hobbit film trilogy. A city built in the middle of the lake? How cool is that! In the story, it is said that Esgaroth was once a wealthy and prosperous city, but was affected (like Dale) by the dragon Smaug. In the films, Esgaroth seemed to be a city filled with poverty. I wish we could have seen it in its prime. Marcel V. has done a wonderful job capturing the visual appearance of the town, while making it seem a bit more cheerful, even if it is cold. The woodwork that he has done in his latest creation is well executed, especially the supports on the tower and that slightly bowed bridge. I can never get tired of seeing well done Lord of the Rings MOC's!
