Being from Wroclaw (born and lived here all my life) I had no idea about that tower. It was even hard to find information about it AFTER I saw it here. (finally found: http://wroclaw.hydra...p?obiekt=000102). How did you learn about it?

As I wrote several posts above, towers are my long-term hobby and I have written several books about them, e.g. this one.

By the way, there's another tower by the same architect in Wroclaw, and it survived the war intact: http://en.wikipedia....ław_water_tower
Anyone up to the challenge?  :grin:

Yes, I know this tower too and I mentioned it in my books as well.

Nicely done! I especially appreciate you taking the time to research an old historical site and bring it to life again! I know how much work and thought that can take!

You captured the details really well! Those slightly rounded corners on the towers are really interesting! :thumbup:

Great MOC, Jonas. You've captured the original tower well, and I like the way you've used different coloured bricks in the base to make it come alive, without it looking messy.

Amazing work! Dimensions might be a little bit wrong but that's so common with Lego so it surely doesn't matter  :classic: Thank you from these pics!
