MOC-30884 Remastered Harry Potter Hogwart’s Castle (71043) Epic Extension
From The Designer- Playwell Bricks (Click to jump to the designer’s homepage to buy the MOC Instructions. rebrickable.com)
Description from the designer:
Lego did an amazing job with the design of Hogwart’s Castle, but Harry Potter fans wanted more. Ryan Kroboth delivered with his epic extension to the castle.
Ryan did a fantastic job with this design, filling it full of detail and adding in all the buildings not originally found in the main set. He seamlessly integrated the original set into his expanded design, so you can’t tell where one begins and the other ends.
I was contacted by a client to make step by step instructions for this design. And with Ryan’s permission I can now make those available to all the Harry Potter fans who want to make their Hogwart’s set truly amazing!
The step by step instructions come 14 PDFs with over 3000 pages of easy to follow steps.
There are two main sections, the small and the large extension, with the instructions showing how they fit on the original set.
Directions to the Step by Step Instructions, open the file. Click the Tool menu, then Instruction maker. You can either follow the directions in the Page Design tab from there or export the directions to a PDF.
Please Note: There have been significant alterations made to the original MOC I posted. Many of the most expensive parts have been replaced making this version much more accessible.
As all fan designers I do this for the passion of Lego but do need to pay the bills like everyone else. If you do buy these instructions, please do not share them out. The cost in low enough to allow any who wish to own it to do so. Thank you.

“The part count of 19k on Rebrickable, is that including the 6k of the original Lego set 71043?”
The 19k in parts does not include the original set
“Are there any base plates included in the extended part of the build?”
No, there are no base plates in the design.
“Any stickers, printed bricks, hard-to-find pieces or customized parts used in the extended buildings”
There are some hard to find pieces. There are some pieces where the original designer used out of date parts, but those can be substituted for currently available parts.
“Can the 1x2x5 Brick Blue by Qty 241 and Technic Brick 6×8 Open Center by Qty 167, are these colour specific or can they be any colour”
They can be any colour as they just form the sub structure.
“Are there any other parts or colours that con be substituted for any colour. Just trying to reduce cost of parts?”
I am sure there are, for instance the large lbg plates under the large extension could be switched out with no visible effect.
I would suggest going through and checking out the sub structure in the sub models and see which parts could be swapped out that would not change the exterior colours.
There are also some older parts that can be swapped out for newer versions as well, making them a bit cheaper, Bricklink will probably catch most of those for you.
“Would it perhaps be possible to share/add one example page of how the PDF instructions out of Stud.io would look like?”
