[MOC] LDD Twin Towers of The World Trade Center (WIP)

Recommended Posts

I'm doing a 1:375 scale of the World Trade Center, I'm also doing the concourse (Isn't present in the photos) The album you're viewing is just a representation, still a work in progress, Lego Digital Designer program cannot handle a lot of bricks because it wasn't meant for big projects like this, so deleted the structure of my twins and added them together just for show. The roads with bunch of studs are temporary, I want this to be accurate, including textures, like the 'Marriott' logo, 'The Mall' logo, flags, posters, banners, awnings,etc. I want to share my knowledge with all of you of what it pretty much looks like and feels like.

If it's recreate-able, I'll do it sometimes I'll doubt myself. There's so much I really really want to talk about, start with, it's suppose to take place in mid-July in 2001, it's my first time making something involving Lego, I started this more than a year ago - 49,517 bricks present. The tall twins are the twins (Duh) The Marriott Hotel is 3 World Trade Center, 3 low rise black buildings, by looking at the first screenshot, 4 is the bottom right, 5 is top right, and 6 is left of 5, 7 is across the street of 5, and 6, haven't started on 7, besides the two bridges yet. You'll notice weird sculptures, red one that's like on some pedestrian bridge (Seven's plaza) is the Bent Propeller, most noticeable thing just by looking above or slightly above is the grey square with some kind of pavement design, with a stage, and a fountain is the Austin Joseph Tobin plaza, the one looks like an "A" shape between the towers is the Ideogram, the golden black one is the Koenig's Sphere (Unfortunately the artist whom made the sphere has passed away around a month ago) but his art survived, black weird pyramids is the Cloud Fortress, bottom I made some panoramas so y'all, and a photo to compare with one of them, you'll know. It's not like 100% accurate because of its scale, but hopefully I capture the feel, and hopefully you appreciate though how much detail and accuracy I put into it. Would love to explain a lot more, but want to keep this a decent length, after all, the screenshots talk for me, but needs a bit of explanation so y'all know what's going on, and a bit eager to share with y'all. Hope I didn't confuse y'all and hopefully this is in an appropriate, better section to talk about my project.

Anyways, follow me on Flickr if you're interested. https://www.flickr.com/photos/146188873@N07/

The textures in the program is transparent, but if the Lego brick in the program is trans, it would make the whole texture trans, so it's a solid, but will only be a sticker. Anyways, what you think? Plus references, and new elevation Liberty Street.
