World Trade Center . This is a model of the (now destroyed) World Trade Center that once stood in Lower Manhattan. First off let me say this is not my design. The original designer was Spencer Rezkalla, and I enjoyed his design so much I wanted one for my own. By studying Spencer's instructions on Brickshelf and pictures as well as Joe Beresford's pictures I was able to replicate the model pretty accurately. . Building the towers was the easiest since the instructions existed for those. Everything else I had to guess on and try to build it as close as possible to the pictures online. I also added a few of my own parts in certain areas while trying to keep the overall design accurate to the actual buildings. WTC 7 was certainly a challenge since pictures only existed on Spencer's model and not Joe's. However I used a lot of online photographs to try and fill in the parts I did not know. The hotel was fairly easy, however it is not completely accurate with the actual building. The sloped part of the real hotel was longer than the straight part, but the limitation of certain types of pieces makes this difficult to replicate. It still looks relatively accurate though. The base was incredibly complex as it had at least six different levels and everything had to line up. You can't see it but I added black tile floors to WTC's 4,5 and 6. The entire project took over two months, most of which was waiting on pieces. I also used somewhere around 21,000 pieces making this the largest Lego model I have ever done. I would like to say a special thank you to both Spencer and Joe; for without their work I never would have been able to create this awesome model in this way. The World Trade Center was one of my favorite places in the world and I am so glad I finally have an awesome model that I can always appreciate.
