This is the North Tower of New York's former World Trade Centre. The building is based on Sean Kenney's fantastic design. It contains over 17,500 bricks!
About this creation
This is a model of New York’s World Trade Centre North tower. This was also known as tower 1. It supported an aerial on its roof, and contained Windows on the World restaurant on the 107th floor.
This building stands at 6ft 7 inches from the floor, and when the aerial is on, it stands at nearly 8ft. It has to be taken outside to photograph with the aerial!
The building contains about 17,500 bricks, and has taken over a year to gather the pieces and build. The building contains 1000’s of 1x1’s and 1x2’s to build up the white outer façade. The inside is braced every 3 bricks by a 3 brick thick strut in light grey. The building is true to the original towers, relying on the outer walls as its load bearers. The 3 light grey bands are the sky lobbies on the outer façade. The tower is based upon the designs of Sean Kenney; I have just modified a few aspects. The tower is compete except for some roof detailing an the lobby interior, I will add these when the south tower is completed.
Excellent Job!!! Also... which one got hit by the plane?? And did u know that the creator of family Guy was supposed to be on that flight (the one that crashed into the tower) but he actually missed the plane because he was drunk, how ironic?!?!
Who could dare to give this less than a 5????? Awe-inspiring model. It looks awesome. WHERE DID YOU GET THAT MANY PIECES????? The only problem....The walls are white, not the gray which would make it look much more accurate. But still, an amazing job! Keep it up and good luck with tower #2!!!
