I've been building this on and off for a year or so. The first studies were done in LDD before I switched to real bricks.
My objective was to render the iconic landmark in the smallest scale possible, while still keeping it detailed enough to be easily recognisable.
A year and quite a few BL-orders after the idea took shape I present you the finished MIDI-scale Brooklyn Bridge.
The finished model is 78 studs long 49 plates high and 5 studs wide.
And yes there are about 160 minifig-hammers in the model.

Well the design itself and the UCS style sign are superb. However I feel like the colors are a bit bland, maybe if you built the supports in tan? I don't know if this is realistic, in some pictures it looks grey and others tan.

Great job  :thumbup: .

I guess darktan would be the right colour. Problem is there are not all parts available in dktan or tan. I think darkbley looks ok tough, gives the bridge that wheatered look.

I really like it, very inventive part usage too. I don't really mind the monochrome look, it sort of fits better with the Architecture style of model that way.

That's a lot of hammers and a very interesting use for them I might add.  It's a very nice build, good job.
