That looks incredible! I think you've done a great job in capturing the curves and top platform details. How long do it take to design and build?, and, how many bricks does it contain?

Thanks for sharing it with us!

Toronto resident here (well, GTA, close enough), well done on capturing one of our landmarks. Bothers me that they changed the name to Rogers Centre but they did do a good job of renovating the stadium.

Looks good! I am from Toronto, and it is very rare to see someone make a MOC of the tower. The tower could be taller, as it looks out of proportion, but that's understandable as it would be too tall to stand. Also, the buildings are grey, but they do look nice in tan. Great job with the lights and the observation deck. They look great :thumbup:

Oh, should have mentioned that I'm ex-Toronto (The Beaches area, east of town) and the CN Tower dominated the skyline from wherever you were, but my favourite view of it was from the Islands.

This is awesome, especially the lighting effect! Some interesting techniques on the tower too. Thanks for sharing.

Amazing model of this very recognisable building! And the lighting effect is outstanding. You have captured the curves and the arch so well!! Congratulations!

Well done and happy building :laugh:

Thanks! It took me a month to build it(build after work:P),i think around 30 hrs., I really doesn't counted how many bricks I use, I guess maybe 2k ~ 3k.

Some secret, I am not planned to built the Rogers Centre (SkyDome) at the beginning, but I saw all photos and model they appear together, so, well, I think have to do it :P

out of proportion < Yes, I am planned to build it in 165cm +-10cm. but if I made the deck small, it not round enough and just not eyes candy, so I made this conceptual proportion :P

Haha, I never been there. so I use google earth for reference, it help a lot

Thanks, by this project I discovered some techniques of hexagon, E.g 4-studs-side hexagon will fit into 5-studs-side hexagon

Well done and happy building :laugh:

lighting effect < Thanks, it containing 3 1 meter long LED tape, and the curves I rebuilt 3 times :P and I have to make a draft in gird paper finally

Brilliant. I know nothing of this building, but to the source material it seems very fitting.

The lighting is neat, but the rounded dome on the top tower is brilliant. Well done there. I can't even wrap my head around that.

And I never saw that Sydney Opera House before either. Great job on that too!

Thanks!

Wow, love it! Scares the hell out of me all over again! :D :D

Thanks!

For the lighting, I am worrying there may be over heat when 3 1M LED tape just installed in a around 10x10 space at the beginning,

but thanks to the air con. there, it is fine for running over 20 days until now.

Because when I was doing testing in workshop, there is some strange plastic smell coming out :sick:

This is awesome!!

My mum is native to Toronto so I spent lots of time there. Like someone said it is instantly recognizeable.

So amazing!
