1) World Trade Centre Project (North tower)
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.

   This shows the tower in its three sections. The tower splits apart to make it easy to move around. It also enables easy storage.

   Me with the tower. In this picture, the tower is missing the basement and completed lobby. The areial is only at half height also.

   The tower outside on a sunny day. Here you can see the areial is in grey, not the finalised white.

   Finished at last. The 100% completed tower. The basement and the redesigned lobby are here. The arieal is also completed at full height in white

   Again me with the tower. This is outside. I am about 5ft 11, so this shows how tall the tower truly is. I will retake this photo when I complete the South Tower, which is currently under construction

   Banners hanging inside the lobby of the tower. This is typical of the true Trade Centre. Here we can see Broadway shows being advertised.

   Looking up from the side. The view from the plaza. This is from a minifig's point of view. You can see the tower's hollow interior.

   The redesigned lobby. You can see the complex construction involved. You can also see the plexiglass awning, that covered the V.I.P entrance on West Street.

   Up! Up! Up! This is from the corner of the building. This is a typical view from one of the surrounding streets. The actual towers were a third taller than any other buildings in Lower Manhattan

   Again more banners. These will face the completed plaza. This advertises the Port Authority's anual 'Center stage, On Stage & Evening stars' performances throughout the summer

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!!!
