Hello, It is my first time posting here on Eurobricks. I am relatively new to the world of LEGO and building MOCs. In fact I had never even touched a single piece of LEGO until a few years ago when my daughter started playing with them (in the time and place I grew up in, LEGO was unheard of and even if it was available I probably wouldn't have been able to afford it !). I stumbled into the creative possibilities that LEGO offers while helping my daughter build her sets. I would say that I am still not into 90% of what LEGO offers (Star Wars, Harry Potter, minifigs and such) but I have found myself a little niche in building scale models of skyscrapers with LEGO (and that is something this medium is particularly suited to). I am an engineer by profession and approach this hobby with the same kind of rigor that I apply in my day job. I designed each of my LEGO models from scratch using Google Earth to study the buildings and make measurements. I then drew the floorplan (so to speak) of each section of the building on graph paper and that way when it was time to order parts from Bricklink I had a very good idea what parts and how many of them I needed. This somewhat manual approach was a refreshing change from my day job that involves working at a computer all day. But given the roughly 1/200 scale I am building at (my smallest MOC still needed upwards of 15K pieces !), it took me several months to design and build each of my MOCs. The three I have finished so far represent about a year's worth of work and I plan to keep going (I am currently working on a model of 40 Wall Street). 70pine_full by DeepShen, on Flickr 70pine_top by DeepShen, on Flickr esb_full by DeepShen, on Flickr chrysler_full by DeepShen, on Flickr chrysler_top by DeepShen, on Flickr I have not had a chance to display these in any LEGO conventions so far (I am in the northeastern US) but I hope to in the coming year.

Hi there, last year I presented my Willis Tower here. Today I want to show you my newest MOC Name: Empire State Building Scale: 1:400 Height: 110cm + 3cm pedestal Bricks: 17.000 (from which about the half are 1x1 trans-black plates and bricks) Planning time: 2 months Building time: 1 month In the meantime I adapted the Willis Tower in scale from 1:410 to 1:400, so they fit together now :) ESB - Looking up ESB - Close Up W34th St. & 5th Ave ESB - Looking up ESB - Close Up Skydeck Bigger photos, more photos, Work-in-Progress-Shots, ... are in my Flickr Album. I hope you like my newest tower If you want to see it in person, it is visible from now on to May 25th in Kaiserslautern, Germany (Dinopark). Then it will be on Comic Con Stuttgart on the first weekend of July. I hope to see you there :) kind regards, Sebastian
