  1. 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/ World Trade Center48 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center49 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center1 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center2 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center3 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center6 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center7 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center8 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center9 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center10 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center11 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center12 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center13 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center14 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center15 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center16 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center17 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center18 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center19 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center20 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center21 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center22 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center23 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center24 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center25 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center26 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center27 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center28 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center29 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center30 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center31 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center32 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center33 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center34 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center35 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center36 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center37 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center38 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center39 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center40 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center41 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center42 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center43 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center44 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center45 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center46 by austinhansngo, on Flickr World Trade Center47 by austinhansngo, on Flickr Ground level by austinhansngo, on Flickr Image by austinhansngo, on Flickr VMG68Eoi0MY-1 by austinhansngo, on Flickr
  2. Got back into working on it, made a topic about this 6 months ago, but in the wrong section. Not the greatest builder, I do believe I am pretty creative though, the model I would say is 90% accurate, I actually started this a year ago, took some time off, and also, believe it or not the first time I'm using Lego, I mean I did have Lego sets and played LDD, for fun though. I guess this is fun too, frustration sometimes when I can't find or think of alternative ways to make it look neat. Anyways, I had to split the model into two because it's too big, even though the plaza which I am for a fact going to do the interior (to be more specific, paths and such) of the mall, (please don't mind the messiness around the area. Elevations are close to accurate, such a small scale so it's tough to make details that tiny.) Now the towers, starting to change some bricks into white so it looks nice. need to do the base,but before I can need to work on my plaza and work around where the towers on and such. kept its edges since they're not attached to the towers, helps me with scaling sometimes, when I start on & it would. Tried my best to give you a taste of what the plaza would be like, through Lego. The Plaza at the moment with all the junk around is 16,000 pieces already. And the Twins are 19,000 each. so all together is more than 50,000. There's a pic of The WTC Lego Model (Not by me) most of you must of seen it before, one of the finest ones I've seen in LDD compared to my Twins when I finished them first. Crashed so I took a screenshot. Don't know how to do thumbnail on here so you guys have a comfortable scrolling and opening I'm assuming that what it does and is. Hopefully you will have access to the imgur links below.

  3. Growing up in New York City in the 80's and 90's the Twin Towers were buildings you thought would always be there. No matter how old I might get I always imagined I would still be able to see them standing in the distance- when no other buildings are tall enough to be seen, even from the far end of Brooklyn, We all know that was not to be. It has been some time now since they are gone- and I still miss them. This set was my small way of bringing back a part of what I miss. Please take a look and support it if you like it. I have the pieces to build it on order, hope to be able to take real pictures by next weekend. https://ideas.lego.com/projects/79596 Some pictures:
  4. Hello everyone, I am proud to assist my friends Sered (http://www.eurobrick...showtopic=81940) and Marco Cancellieri in showing the big A Song of Ice and Fire (know as Game of Thrones for the HBO show) diorama that we together presented at the ItLug Latina 2013 Lugfest. Some information about this diorama: it's 288 studs large and 576 long, making it 2,30 m large and 4,60 long. Sered, as you can see on the linked topic, did an oustanding and unflagging work in building Winterfell. That's so plenty of wonderful details that though the many pictures we took, it doesn't do justice to him. Here there are just a couple of pictures, please click on the previous link to enjoy the work he did: or follow the link https://skydrive.liv...5C5BAC70CE1!124 thanking our great friend Yugo Amaryl. Marco Cancellieri AKA The Chancellor, who always likes (and succeeds) to impress, went into another big job and build none other than the WALL (and Castle Black of course) Again, here are some resized pictures, you can take advantage of Yugo Amaryl's shots again to see them in detail: https://skydrive.liv...5C5BAC70CE1!123 Me and my friend Lothard McLotti went into building the Frey's Twin Towers. Nothing like the above, but nice result though: More to this diorama is being built for the next Legofests. As I speak, people is adding wanting to build another piece of westeros... what will this become? Thank you for watching from Italy!
