Model completed in 2002. Version 2 updated in 2004.
About this creation
This is the second version of my microscale 2.5ft tall Sears Tower model. The improvements include:
- Individual 1x1 clear windows replace the dark gray plates used in the original model. Nearly 4000 windows elements are used in the model.
- Details of the red granite base including the SkyDeck, Franklin, and S. Wacker Drive atrium entrances.
- Improved antenna and rooftop HVAC details
- 103rd floor SkyDeck observatory
Seeing this several months ago, made me regain my interest in building with lego
since then I've built
Willis (Sears) Tower ...
Trump International New York & Chicago (Chicago being the hardest lego structure I have ever built) ...
Solow Building NY(my personal fav) ...
Trump World Tower ...
Time Warner Center North Tower ...
What you do with lego is awesome, and I hope you continue to do it
Sears tower Chicago is the huge building, from Skydeck you can see views of not only Chicago but also the neighboring states like Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin. The view from tower is just awesome!!! I admit that the lines were long and wait is very boring but once you up there you forget everything and it really worth waiting.
I live in a south suburb of Chicago, just east of Joliet. I have built an approx. 14 3/4 in. model but I ran out of black pieces.So to the point: U R GOD!!!! this model is so detailed right down to the windows, the radar sensors at the base of the Antenna, rite down to the atrium!
NICE!! Its really a great model and it is extremely intricate and detailed. You should definately consider making models such as the Abraj Al Bait Towers in Mecca. And I think that, although it would be very challenging, a Chicago Spire model would be totally awesome!!
That is a lot of clear and black plates! Despite the simplicity of the original design, its still impressive. The real Sears Tower still beats the Petronas Towers despite what the record books say. Your entire micro-skyline looks great!
