Dear Mariann Asanuma,
that is a nice MOC! I especially like the windows.
During the building process, did you consider using another color such as, sand red, dark red or (b)rown for the walls?
Or a combination of those colors and maybe some plates to represent the masonry?
Thanks for the compliment guys. As for your question Teddy, I had thought about adding some new brown for accent, but I didn't really have the time or the parts for this model. Although it would have been nice to be in sand red, when the model is 42 inches long and two feet tall, its a little hard to get that much together. I only had 2 and a half weeks to design and build it and that includes getting all the bricks for the project. Also, I didn't keep this model, it was given to the Afro-American Cultural Center.

Well dome Mariann
! Very true to the original. It´s nice when real buildings etc gets done and especially when they´re for a special purpose!
I also think the windows looks real good. Did you sketch it out before building, or just free-brick it? Keep´em coming
Thanks CopMike. I did sketch out the building on Brick Paper before building. I did this to determine the scale and size I would build in. I also did it so that I wouldn't spend as much time building unnecessary prototypes. As for all the details (windows, doors, etc.) I mostly made a single prototype and then planned out for multiples on the actual building.
When I get a chance I'll add some pictures of the building process so that you can see what I mean.
