Lego World Trade Center
Well, not much has been going on in the Transformer world for me in the past few days so I thought I might showcase one of my Lego creations. First off let me say that this is not my design, but I was able to replicate it from the original without any instruction or direction. I loved the World Trade Center in New York and had the special privilege of being able to visit and enjoy it in 1997. I was devastated in 2001 not only for all the lives lost, but for the wonderful structure that will never be replaced. I will always have a great memory of that place and it will always hold a special place in my heart. This was my way of creating a small tribute to my memory so that the WTC will always be close at hand.
The entire WTC complex.
WTC 3, the Mariott
The WTC Plaza
The entire complex again.
This build took me around two and a half months and about 19,000 lego pieces. The main towers were the most complex but the rest of the site was fairly straightforward.
