About this creation
So, this is what I've been working on for the past couple months. Myself and members of CoWLUG were asked to build an exhibit for the History Colorado Center in Denver for display this summer. It has four sections - Contemporary, Geological, Old West and Future Denver. I worked on the Future Denver section with L D M and a couple of other CoWLUG members, including my mom - I know - but her building skills are coming along.

So the story behind the section is that in the future there aren't any cars, so the Denver Bike program with rental stations has taken over. The buildings keep moving up higher to fresher, cooler air, so that's why some of the smaller condos are on scissor jacks. The energy used is made through recycled junk - so there's a junkyard. And other power comes from hybrid crystal plants of some sort. The most used public transportation is the elevated monorail. Oh, and extraterrestrials have decided to move in too.

If you get to Denver this summer, it's on exhibit from May 26 - Aug 1, 2012.
















Yeah that's TWO Super Star Destroyers. We were sitting around one night talking about what would be a cool skyscraper design. I looked over at the shelf where my Executor was sitting and one of us said, "Hey wouldn't it be cool if we could stand it on end?" And so that's when we called another member to borrow theirs. I took off the engines, sandwiched them together and added supports with a train tunnel. And what do you know? It does look cool standing on end.

Quoting Skull Kid Epicly epic with just a hint of epicness. Seriously, this is one of the most awesome MOCs I've ever seen. Oh yeah, thanks for making me one of your favourite builders.

Quoting Clever Crowe I could spend HOURS drooling over these pics. There truly aren't words to capture the ENVY and AWE I feel when viewing. Would that I lived nearer all this and could drool with proximal precision. HIGHEST possible compliments. E-P-I-C. I mean, who doesn't need city architecture based on Super Destroyers?... why aren't there more of them already?!? *calls local City Zoning Board immediately* =)
Wow. Thanks. :) Yeah, too bad you can't come hang out at the exhibit.. I enjoy a precision drool. Thanks man.

Quoting Fritz K Stunning! All sorts of great techniques were put to use here. How long did this take to build?
Thanks. How long? Have you ever gotten a good answer to that question from a builder? We had a couple months to get it all together and install.

This is amazing! The structures look perfectly suited for the half-overgrown base, and the colors you used provide a great futuristic vibe. And those SSDs! Wow! Great job all around!

A very cool city like this. I like the buildings, but my favorite part is actually the ground. It looks like a thousand things put together, but it fits together so well! And the integration of all sorts of stuff, like traintracks, monorailtracks, Star Wars stuff, and so on... Great! Greetz, ELio

The Super-Star Destroyer skyscraper is one of the most incredibly creative building to be included in architectural categories!!

Quoting Rocco Buttliere I like the integration of the two Executors for the one tower. Interesting futuristic concepts too. See you at Brickworld!
Thanks. Not going to Brickworld this year since we're going to Star Wars CVI in August, AND Denver Comic Con asked me to show something same weekend as Brickworld... sorry to be missing it. :(
