Sony Building, New York
micro scale skyscraper
About this creation
Micro scale model of Philip Johnson's classic midtown Manhattan skyscraper. The model is approximately 1/650 scale (based on it's heigth) - similar to my other skyscrapers. I orginally constructed this model in 2002 using light gray, as tan was not available for many of the parts I needed. In 2008 I went back and completely redesigned it and added many new details. Astute observers will note I have taken some liberties with the layout of the various windows - a consequence of the model's odd numbered 9x5 stud footprint.



Despite it's outwardly simple appearance, there are a lot of "stud not on top" techniques used in this model. Packing everything into such a small space was a real challenge.


Back of the tower showing the glass topped atrium.







Front of the tower showing the arched main entrance with a large circular window above.






Top of the tower. The crown's style has often been compared to that of a Thomas Chippendale cabinet. The semi-circular opening is a bit larger scalewise than in the real building.






Some more of the street level detailing.

A great micro MOC! The bricks are all facing different directions and yet you kept it all SNOT, well done!

Spencer, Did this used be called the AT&T building? Another great micro to add to the other amazing micro skyscapers you've built.

Beautifully done! Some great SNOT work around the bottom section of the building, and it has an amazingly realistic appearance for something so small (the tumbnail in particular gives the impression that it's much larger).
