Hi, EB fellows.
My new MOC is a model of a real look-out tower that once stood in Breslau (now Wroclaw in Poland). The tower's unique design was created by German architect Karl Klimm. The tower was built in 1902 and was named Emperor Wilhelm's Memorial Tower. It had 4 observation platforms at different heights and it measured 47 m. In my opinion, it was the most wonderful look-out tower worldwide. Unfortunately, it was destroyed during the WWII battle of Breslau in 1945 and it does not exist anymore.
When building the MOC I used a series of historic postcards from my collection and also a project sketches by K. Klimm. The MOC is 65 cm high and contains some 6000 Lego pieces.
