World Trade Center, New York City . This model consists of 15,716 pieces. . This model took six months to complete and is my sixth skyscraper based off of Spencer Rezkalla's original design. The towers, however, actually took me two years, off-and-on, to finally get the designs right. The base was especially difficult because of all its different levels, complexity, and the diversity of colors. Because of the high piece count, this is the biggest and most expensive permanent LEGOŽ model I have ever built. Completed August 25, 2010.

Completion of Complex
On Januray 15, 2011, I finished the addition of 7 WTC. Thus making my World Trade Center model complete. The entire complex consists of almost 16,000 pieces! Although, compared to Spencer's and Eric Warren's versions, I suppose I used the least amount of pieces. Go figure!
