TheWarden posted a topic in Special LEGO ThemesGreetings, fellow Eurobrickers! I'm pleased to present my contest entry, the Great American Tower in my city of Cincinnati, Ohio. It's one of the newest and greenest additions to our skyline. I'll probably repost this after the contest with my own personal thoughts, things I learned about, some of the techniques inside it, self criticism, that sort of thing, but for now, it must stand on it's own. I hope you enjoy it! Some facts about the building courtesy of https://www.queencitysquare.com/ -- --- If you are interested in green buildings, you can follow the link above for a write up of its certification, but there are also more photos, fact sheets, and features of the building and Queen City Square. So, on to the build and myself. A while back I got the New York skyline set and The LEGO Architect by Tom Alphin and just loved them but haven't really MOCced anything in that scale. But while I love the NY microscale, it doesn't leave a lot of room for details, but in looking back at the older Architecture sets, I settled on the midi-scale? of the LEGO 21018 United Nations Headquarters, so my entry is more in that scale and should be about that size, per contest requirements.

Registered a little bit ago and haven't posted much yet, but figured I'd introduce myself. I'm Heather, I'm from Cincinnati, Ohio, been a Lego fan since childhood, it was always my favorite toy and up until recently I only got them out periodically or played with them with my niece and newphews when they visit. I found the local Lego store a couple months ago and now I'm obsessed again, I think it was the Galaxy Squad sets that caught my eye. I've always been a big fan of the space/sci-fi and castle themes, but I'll build most anything if I get the urge to. Hoping to get some good ideas and maybe post some MOCs of my own here, too. Any other AFOL from Cincinnati on here?
