  1. This is actually my first post here on the forum, even though I’ve been following it for a while now… Entering this contest seemed like a good excuse to finally register as a member ;-) I live near Rotterdam in the Netherlands and for this contest I choose the Euromast, with 185 m the tallest building in Rotterdam. Some background facts Built for the 1960 Floriade Event, the Euromast is an observation tower designed by Hugh Maaskant with a base pillar diameter of 9.6 meter. At 32 m above ground there is a small museum, resembling a ship’s bridge. The platform is at 96 m and houses a restaurant, viewing decks and even hotel rooms. Originally the tower was only about 100 m tall, but after it was surpassed by other high-rise buildings in the city, it was decided to add the Space Tower: a rotating observation capsule carrying visitors all the way to the top. With a tower like this, scale wise there were only a couple of options: the base pillar could either be 1 stud or 2 studs wide. The first option was a bit too simplistic for my taste, and because I insisted to add at least some detail I went for the latter option. This resulted in a scale of about 1/600, making my model 31 cm high. Base and top part were pretty straightforward to build, but especially the middle part took me several attempts until I was satisfied with recreating the particular shape. Anyway, I had fun building the tower, so thanks for reading and good luck to all who entered!
